They finished the world's first ever completely untwinked solo self-found Hell pacifist Sorceress run in Diablo 2: Resurrected. This accomplishment took MacroBioBoi(opens in new tab) more than 50 hours of game time to accomplish. This achievement is the first one of its kind to be completed.
In terms that are more familiar to people who aren't speedrunners in Diablo 2, the following is how Macro defeated Diablo 2:Resurrected on the most challenging difficulty level without causing any damage to anything else and making use of only Diablo 2 items for sale discovered throughout the run as sources of both offensive and defensive power.(In the lingo of Diablo 2, the practice of giving Diablo 2 Skill Tips (best gold items shop) to a character through the trading system is referred to as twinking.)Diablo 2 speedrunners had developed theoretical strategies that would enable them to finish the run, but Macro was the first person to actually put one of these strategies into action in the game.
PC Gamer was told that the only people who had ever taken the run beyond Normal had twinked a character with edited gear in order to see if it was even possible. This was done in order to determine whether or not it was achievable.
The speedrunning community for Diablo 2 has come up with a comprehensive set of rules in order to specify the parameters of what constitutes a pacifist run. These rules can be found here. The fact that you are not allowed to attack is something that goes without saying, but there is more to it than that. You also lack the ability to force anything else to attack, lay traps, or make use of auras that deal damage to others. It is necessary for the majority of the damage you inflict to be a direct result of an adversarial creature's choice to make contact with you for it to count toward the total amount of damage done. In order to achieve this objective, Macro outfitted their Sorceress with abilities and items that increased the likelihood that their character would cast a spell whenever they took damage. By the time the conflict was over, they had procured a suit of armor that, whenever they were struck by an enemy, triggered the casting of a potent spell with a wide area of effect called Nova. This spell had a devastating effect. They also invested points into the Cold Armor passive skills, which both increase defense (the Sorceress doesn't have a lot of hitpoints) and deal cold damage to enemies that hit them.
Macro, who has a time of 2 hours 25 minutes and 45 seconds for the Pacifist Paladin speedrun in Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction on the Normal difficulty setting, speculated that playing on the Resurrected difficulty setting might make things easier for this Hell run. However, that did not end up being the case with the circumstances.
As Macro explained to PC Gamer, I had anticipated that this run would be difficult; however, with the addition of Synergies to the skill Nova in Diablo 2: Resurrected, which grants bonus damage for skills that are related to one another, Diablo 2 resurrected runes for sale I figured that it would actually be a lot easier than it was in Lord of Destruction. This is because Synergies grants bonus damage for skills that are related to one another. After spending eight hours in the Chaos Sanctuary attempting to determine a particular spawn pattern for the Seal Boss Lord De Seis, it was quickly determined that this plan would not be successful and was therefore abandoned. I was not able to outlast his minions for the required amount of time to kill him, and if you die and then return to town, he will frequently cast a Bestow buff on himself. I was unable to kill him because of this. Because of this buff, he is able to restore his health at a rate that is higher than any amount of Nova procs that could come from my gear.
In order to deal damage faster than Lord De Seis could regenerate health, Macro needed an item that gave their character a 5% chance to cast Blaze, a spell that creates a burning patch on the ground. Blaze is a spell that creates a burning patch on the ground. The use of the spell known as Blaze can set a portion of the ground nearby on fire. If Lord De Seis were to stand in the flames, he would take damage with each frame, which would prevent his ability to regenerate. This would be the case because the damage would be cumulative.(The full explanation is even more complicated than this; you can find it in the content that is embedded above, beginning at about 5:05.)
According to Macro, despite the fact that he is a very difficult monster to manipulate in order to move, I was required to coerce him into entering that fire. Because on my very last attempt, he did not Bestow himself, and after approximately ten deaths, we were finally able to get him, we can basically say that we got lucky.
Macro, who has been playing Diablo 2 ever since they were a child, is already streaming another attempt at the run, this time using a Paladin character. Macro has already moved on to the next attempt, despite the fact that it is a tremendous accomplishment. Macro asserts that in contrast to the Sorceress, the Paladin does not have any abilities that are capable of killing Lord De Seis. This is in contrast to the Sorceress, who does possess such capabilities.
Macro explained that in order for him to have a chance at completing the task, he needed to obtain a very specific weapon from Mephisto in the Nightmare. This weapon could only be obtained through the Nightmare. It is called the Boneslayer Blade, and it takes me about five minutes to kill Mephisto every time I use it to do the deed. I started the challenge two days ago, and I'm streaming it all over again so that other people can see how difficult it is for me to complete.
MacroBioBoi writes for Maxroll and streams his gameplay of Diablo 2: Resurrected on Twitch. He also broadcasts his gameplay of the game. They are not, however, die-hard fans of Diablo 2, and once they have completed the run that they are currently on, Diablo 4 will be the next game that will be on their minds.
I come from a very heavy MMORPG background (EverQuest and WoW), and it seems like Diablo 4 will instigate a lot of social gameplay that I really miss when playing most ARPGs nowadays. This information comes from an interview that Macro gave to PC Gamer. It feels like a beautiful return to form after Diablo 3 and Diablo Immortal, diablo 2 resurrected items for sale which is one of the reasons I enjoy the restriction on trading for BIS gear and the best items. Another reason is that it feels like a beautiful return to form after Diablo 3 and Diablo Immortal. I also enjoy it from a purely aesthetic standpoint. Even though I enjoy Diablo 3, which places me in the minority among Diablo 2 players, I couldn't shake the feeling that the game's overall aesthetic was lacking in some way. The fact that you can decide to play as a Necromancer from the very beginning of the game was the deciding factor in whether or not I would pre-order the game.
It wouldn't surprise me if, once we've finished mingling, Macro started developing characters in Diablo 4 according to rule sets that were unreasonable in the amount of restriction they placed on player agency.
People who know me well say that despite the fact that I have a background in microbiology and science in general, I have always had a tendency to ask absurd questions. These people say this because I have always had a tendency to ask absurd questions. In the event that there is no response, I will experiment with various things until I determine what the cause of the issue is.
