It is time to go off the deep finish, as Wudijo has stacked the stackiest quantity of stacks ever! The ultimate tally was over 13,000, however they may have gone on and on, solely stopping as a result of they’d seen sufficient. As you’d think about, this supplies some strong 1-shots on just about all the pieces within the sport, however sadly we did not get to see the GR 150 well being get challenged, as the tactic used to get that prime is simply doable on common Nephalem Rifts.
So what’s truly occurring right here? Nicely it is the previous devoted technique of buying and selling stacks by leaving the sport as soon as to desync the buff timers, after which simply passing them on between one another by transferring away after they’re about to procc. It is enjoyable to see the stack counter return to 001 after the 10Okay mark, so let’s check out this bizarre journey, additionally that includes a hearth wall that really does one thing (aka one pictures the Rift Guardian).

There have been some fairly blazing GR 150 4-man runs lately, with the US and EU hovering across the Four and a half minute mark, however they nonetheless have not been in a position to beat the sub-Four minute greatest over on the Chinese language servers. The video beneath is definitely of an earlier try, which appears to have been faraway from the Chinese language leaderboards, as they completed the rift on three minutes and 52 seconds a couple of weeks in the past, whereas the present Rank 1 on the official Chinese language D3 web site is sitting at three Min 57 sec, with completely different gamers, and is more moderen. So, we’re not fairly positive what occurred there, however we will nonetheless get an thought of the pace concerned right here:
Then we’re on to the present Rank 1 within the US, with this sadly quick clip of Eggman and firm getting it completed in Four min 21 sec:
And eventually now we have the EU in third place, however solely 22 seconds behind the US:
So, a pacifist run in a hack and slash Diablo sport. Sounds extraordinarily bizarre and even oxymoronic, proper? Not solely that, however contemplating the usage of the Hellfire Amulet to facilitate the thorns legendary gem, it additionally appears fairly simple to do proper? Because it seems, there are extra limitations to this strategy than simply enemies, with the biggest and most troublesome being: DOORS. Mainly, Chitor turned Diablo three into an old-school journey sport, the place he needed to scour the sport for options to points that got here up, and simply stored going deeper and deeper, as one resolution creates one other drawback and so forth.
You probably have 10 minutes to spare, it is actually price a watch with none additional spoilers, as there have been fixed points surrounding that one drawback, and the lengths that Chitor needed to undergo to get handed one specifically are really humorous and attention-grabbing, so simply try the video beneath. If not, there is a quick run by of this notably distinctive endeavour underneath the video.
Chitor took it upon himself to attempt ending the story with out ever attacking, utilizing a capability or follower, ranging from degree 1 (however utilizing Design: Hellfire Amulet and Boyarsky’s Chip, as talked about) and it actually turned out to be so much tougher than anticipated, due to these pesky breakable doorways. An entire lot of ingenuity was required to truly get handed them, from comparatively easy options like utilizing mobs that explode to push by, however then there was the principle hindrance of your entire endeavour, the door within the blacksmith’s basement, because it has no enemies round it. The answer to this absolute and unyielding impediment took a ridiculous period of time to surpass, as Chitor truly needed to degree to 70 so as to have the ability to get handed that door (as he wanted a selected legendary from his stash which had a degree req of 70). This meant optimizing all of the low lever gear for all times regen to outlive some greater problem farming, or this little pacifist run would take a looong time. Lastly when reaching 70 and having the ability to use that key legendary merchandise to open the door (and plenty of, many obstacles later within the sport), the remainder of the sport went usually, though elements of it actually turn into apparently completely different, like operating round attempting to get hit by Belial’s meteors as a way to harm him.
This actually turned out to be a really entertaining problem, so thanks so much to Chitor for sticking by it!
