Forum Index General Discussion What is it like to fail a marathon at the 26 mile mark?

History

I think I'm about to find out....



Spoiler
I'm level 99 and 30% progress. Pretty much level 100 or bust at this point.

More like the 2 mile mark.

You could do the dark shrine one in a day. Just buy a ton of offerings and rush darkshrines then leave the lab when you get them all.

Just go to poelab to get the locations and close the browser (because ive heard of it doing nefarious stuff in the background now)

Dying also doesnt set you back lightyears.

Maybe. I got 99 3 days ago (leveling has never been a focus area for me). Putting all resources into leveling makes it reachable....but unlikely.

Definitely further than the "2 mile mark" though as it will only take me 10 days to go from 99 to 100 at this rate. Abysses took longer than that.

I thought about that and decided that I needed a level 100 for my Grandmaster so what better time than now.

I would rather finish with 39 challenges than spam labs for shrines. It is the easiest path though, I agree.

You'll make it... I was just being snarky.

I'm not sold on that. I think I can absorb one death with my time constraints, but two would tank me. I've not died for many levels though, so karma is coming for me.

I've gained a newfound respect for this armor though:

The Brass Dome
Gladiator Plate

  • 30% reduced Chance to Block Attack and Spell Damage
  • 642% increased Armour
  • 10% reduced Movement Speed
  • 50% increased Shock Duration on you
  • Take no Extra Damage from Critical Strikes
  • The turtle's shell one day becomes its tomb.



    It's clear to me that crits are the main source of my deaths after wearing this thing for a while.

    I could make fun of you but I choose to give you clarity by giving you a walrus pillow which will give you a boost of awesomeness.

    Hah, thanks. Does that mean I can blame the pillow if I die or fail?

    Early on I decided to go for 40 Uber Elders first. Made like 100ex on Watcher's Eye so it was worth. Definately won't try lvl 100 in this game.
