With so many people rolling multiples of the same character, (barbs are really popular because of how easy they level), I am all but positive Blizz will put some sort of limit to this before release.

I'd imagine they will set a limit of 2 characters per class that the paragon levels will count from.

Regardless, under 3 days from lvl 1-max paragon would be incredible.

Why would they do that? Just to piss people off?

Hey Det0x, I can never see your videos on my iPad. Any reason for that?

Yep, just to piss people off.

Seeing that they intend to balance all the classes with a fresh new start without those old-time players having too much advantage.

Those who have more than 2 barbarians in soft core are obviously exploiters who can just pass over their 'top end' gear to the 2nd character while spin to win. It is diminishing the efforts of those who put in efforts for leveling 2 of each classes. If want to be on the safe set, level like other normal players. I have seen more than 3 WD with p100, probably from the dogs exploit.

Post xpac XP will likely dwarf current XP/hour levels. Level 70(73?) mobs will have to be worth a lot more. Even 10xP100 currently won't be a huge advantage. Not to mention everyone will be playing ladder.

So no reason to piss people off by not counting all currently earned XP

@Detox, what would be the equivalent hours to P100 for a 250K DPS barb? If we normal people only compare ourselves to your and your counterparts gear we are gonna be stuck. It would be greatly helpful if you guys do something similar for avg/above avg. geared characters. Thanks.

Aye, thank you for writing this as you can or choose to not see I am at level 96. It has taken me forever... haha... Currently my DPS is not to bad and running act I on MP10 worked really good. Sure I am not super fast running through, although it is a nice change from the VOA runs I was doing. And the crypt... OMG that is so nice, I may run it on MP9 as that is much faster.

actually, if you have a party, one guy just finds the crypts, aggros all the mobs (pestilence WD or maybe TR monk), 3 others pre-clear elites in FW without killing, group goes back, kills elites, then hit the crypts backwards (from aggro guys waypoint)

I'll give you a tip on the Decaying crypt and stacking NV5.

1. Each of the party member makes a separate game and find for the Decaying crypt. It spawns either at the northeast or southwest corner of Fields of misery. The first one who finds it invites others to his game. This way you can always have Decaying crypt in your farming route.

2. Like dethaxe said, the WD goes straight to the Decaying crypt and spawn zombies all the way to the 2nd floor. While WD is at the Decaying crypt, other 3 party members lower the hp of 3 elites in Festering woods. After the setup, WD goes to Festering woods, kill 3 elites together, use the waypoint to get back to town and go to the 2nd floor of Decaying crypt by using WD's town portal. Open the resplendent chest, finish the quest and now you have 5 NV stacks and can start farming from the decaying crypt. ( You only need 3 NV stacks at Festering woods since you can get 2 NV stacks at the 2nd floor of Decaying crypt. )

I would also like to add that its even possible to do it quite a bit faster faster then 34 hours. I was playing mostly solo in the start, and that slowed me down.. I would guesstimate ~30 hours is possible with the right "know how" and group.


I have been leveling a new barb with especially this in mind, so all farming was done in group using the exact route and setup shown in first post...

Sadly i missed my mark by 25min :( Guess i can blame nubtro for this failure, as i have been carrying him around for a few hours :P

Official time: Level 1 to Paragon 100 in 31 hours and 24 mins.

Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/cZZgWNR.jpg

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPaofJymsyg

Some statistics for my run:

Total xp needed from Paragon level 1 to Paragon level 100 = 10,454,400,000 xp

Total time used from level 1 to level 60 = ~1 hour and 45 mins

Total time used from Paragon level 1 to Paragon level 100 = 29 hours and 39 min

~10400 mil xp / 29.5 hours = ~ 352 mil xp per hour including everytime (deaths, looting, repair, identifying, etc etc)

Special thanks go out to "main" farming group: (no particular order)

Which doctors.

Amazing work det0x. Could you, Akisto or anyone else involved explain how to play the wd role here?

Horrify+spirit walk to help keep up with the barbs and pestilence to pull mobs I assume...but I barely saw the wd at all in any of your videos.

Congrats. Hahaha yeah of course it was my fault :p

But I laughed quite a bit two days ago when you were dying to those flowers so much, blaming it on them being "unbalanced" :p. Good times. It was fun playing with you guys, it´s kind of boring to grind solo recently and among better geared players I had to focus not to embarass myself so much (I still die once in a while, but all of us did, right? :p).

My average was 307.5/hour last time I played with you, but I don´t use Ruby nor hellfire so that I´m not as far behind (not to mention survive a bit more - one charge).

Now as I said I want you (us) to go try Act 2 for a bit with your new Barb, unless you decide to go for another record again :/

@silver: I´ve played with them for a while when noone better was around gear-wise (of course, my skills are amazing :) and I can tell you that the WD is there to
1) destroy the elite while we just spin around, trying to look cute and dodging lasers and molten booms
2) gather - Akisto gets the exp for all mobs pestilence touches and he just runs around the battlefield, sometimes even 2 screens away from us 3 Barbs (lol we´re barely keeping up) and only engages monsters when there´s like 150 of them in one place where he seems to use Bears to create a corridor. I mean, as far as I can tell - there is so much stuff on the screen and the fps drops like crazy, so most of the time my eyes are focused on the point where I expect my Barb to be. That´s why you barely saw him. He´s the hoarder.

Those guys even chat while playing, ending up getting themselves killed hahaha.

Oh yeah, both Det0x and Akisto use Hellfire, Ruby in helm and even Leoric´s most of the time.

Haha these videos are pretty cool - congrats. It's enjoyable to see the game played to the max.

Regrading the paragon levels contribution being "capped" towards 2.0; I would imagine the devs will have some kind of hard cap. It may be unfair but it's kind of standard operating procedure. It just means detox will have to power level through the new content.
