Fai enough for you to say but I didn't cheat. Well ... I do cheat by changing my last saved location to teleport but fair enough. The only way still I see this to work "fairly" is being able to upload your saved game to a server and it keeps track of what your rank is

I will make the observation that around the end of November last year your signature suddenly said level 481. The 0.7.2 beta was only released to the forums 80 days before that, and the highest level you could get before that was 400. To get those additional 81 levels you would need more than 800,000,000 additional XP. That’s killing one Arulir every 3 seconds, for 80 days, with no break.

You also posted a screenshot that shows you have 3 x DoSP, and 2 x Blade of the Defiler. Both of those are boss drops, and you can only get one of each of them.

Edit: Anyone can play the game any way they want. There are others that have openly admitted hacking a savegame, because they want to complete the quests, but not grind. That's fine. Each to their own. We are not playing each other online, so it's not possible to really cheat. However, a highscore list is competition, so any action taken that is not built into the game is a disqualifier.

I played this game 10 hrs a day since it came out. I'm ocd on stuff. But again it's fine. I was ocd when I played back on Vic 20 and Atari days had to kill soany of each ordo the same stunt twice.

10 hours a day, every day for 80 days, killing one Arulir every 1.25 seconds, with no breaks?

If you want, you can PM me with a link to your savegame. If it is hacked, unless you did an exceptionally good job, I will be able to tell. If it really doesn't look hacked then I will happily declare that to be the case.

Hello players!

I plan to revive the old bestlist in a new format and new measurement.
But as you can have different builds and choices, a mostly objective measurement is nearly impossible.

This is my try:
Level, Places Visited (VP), Finished Quests (FQ): Level counts fully, for the VP will only count the last ten, for FQ the last 2 (can change with future updates)
Legendary Drops: 3 Points each
Extraordinary Drops: 2 Points each
Dark Protector (DP), Xul'virr (X), Marrowtaint (M), Boots of the Globetrotter (BoGt), Sword of the Annihilator (SotA) with 1 Point (all these items can or cannot be obtained with quests - that is your choice!)
Ring of far lesser Shadow (RofLS): 3 Points
Abbreviations should be: PV, not VP, BotG, not BoGt, RoFLS, not RofLS.

The Sword of the Annihilator is just a boss drop (the chief troll). I believe you are thinking of Lifetaker (abbreviation L, I guess).

I do not think all of these quest items are equivalent. Some you can only get by finishing the quest a certain way (e.g. Marrowtaint). Others, you get just by finishing the quest (e.g BotG). One other you can only get by already having a specific legendary item, and doing something specific, and rather uninviting. That is not a quest, but it cannot be done after you have completed a certain quest because it is tied to it. I think very few will get a RoFLS, and almost none that did not read about it on the forums first. Anyway, RoFLS already gets 3 points as a legendary, so it should not get 3 more.

Hi guys, this thread makes me really curious about the RoFLS. Can you give some more hints? I have finished all possible quests, visited all places and own a RoLS. Is there still a way to get a hand on this mysterious legendary object?

You needed to talk to Rorthron in Guynmart. If you have completed all the quests this option is now closed though.

Is this the guy who always said to me
I should stay outside because it is too dangerous?
