Most Shameful "return to corpse" run/runs you ever did

No data yet

2

Description

everybody know this shameful feeling, you were all powerful, but you screwed up.
then you return all naked to try and get your corpse. but even that isn't so easy.
so you do it again, and again...

so this about the most shameful, it could be X times you had to go back to actually get the corpse. or just a particular stupid thing.

I'll go first:
i was stupid enough to try and find a waypoint in the arreat plateu in 4 min time. so i lead an army after me, much like the end of benny hill show, if you were alive even back then.

not only that i had to clear more time to get there alive, but i had to clear my way naked, with a
Belt
i bought so i will have enough potions.
usualy its just quick run to grab it and POWER ON!

wasn't such the case as it turns out...

anyone else care to share, it's pretty funny IMO

PS
one time i had to waste 1 million or something close to
Revive
my merc every run to corpse..

EDIT notes:
-i consider relogging shameful, the most.
-someone had a his corpses spread out all over the map he had to spam click to find the gear one.

Step one : I die like an idiot in the middle of a stack of Corrupted rogue archers

Step two : Die one time. Two times. Three times. Four t... ok fuck this

Step three : quit out and reconnect to recover my body at camp

Step four : Instead of my main weapon and my chestplate, I recover 2 random White items that I must have mistakenly grabbed during my attempts at reaching my body
7
I know this sounds a little off, but I have never failed to recover my body. I still have a pretty good merc and
Valkyrie
. When they're engaged I just run in grab my corpse and start firing
Arrows
in less than a second or so.

Trying to rescue
Anya
with those stupid ghosts and about 6 beers in. Died countless times, gave up on rezzing my merc, ran out of gold. Took about 2 hours.

My most shameful Death/run back combo was dying to 2 packs of Souls right next to
Izual
while rushing a person.

Felt so good at lvl 96...

Probably, but hopefully not while I have lots of experience points to lose. :-)

Thats why you should write /nopickup in chat when you are on a rescue mission.

Take this potion of LUCK

That really should have been a persistent options menu item. Otherwise you can't go anywhere without picking up some useless piece of crap.

Likewise, I'd like it if click-and-hold skills weren't interrupted by your mouse cursor hovering over a shrine after your screen repositions, like when teleporting.

I started playing Diablo 2 when I was just a little kid. I mean, really little. I have a Memory of going into the
Cold Plains
and not being able to read yet and just recognizing that "those symbols mean the running grey people are here."

So, naturally, I picked up all sorts of weird ideas and superstitions due to not being able to actually understand the game. One was that if I left game with a corpse on the ground, I would lose all my gear.

There's a bunch of stories from this time I could pick to discuss, but here's the first one that comes to mind. One time, I died against normal diablo on an assassin I was leveling (LOL, noob). I rezzed my merc, bought 1 line of healing potions, got 1 shot by the fire
Nova
or lightning breath, and tried again. Which,
Burst of Speed
exists, so IDK how I was having so much trouble, but whatever. My APM back then must've been horrible. I even remember vendoring all the gems in my stash (because, of course, I picked up every single chipped gem) to get enough gold to keep making attempts. After a while, I had enough corpses on the ground that I forgot which one was my real one and started spam clicking all of them. Once or twice I successfully got my main body back, only to immediately die AGAIN and have to start over.

Eventually I succeeded though! I then ran around some other zones in Acts III and IV to get enough gold to restock on potions, leveled up a few times, and went back in and defeated Diablo. At the time, my victory born of perseverance was a huge triumph! Looking back on it now...it was a pretty shameful set of corpse runs. Especially since I could have just logged out and gotten my body back. Hell, even if logging out did delete my main body like I feared, I probably could have used my gold to vendor new gear from Jamala and been in a BETTER position. But thus it is I guess.

i consider this much more shameful, its like admitting the game beat you. never relog!!

goodluck, and may the RNG god be with you.

I agree, it's much more fun to try to get your body back and watch the corpses piling up. I dread to think how many times I have been jumped by an archer pack in the Pits or Forgotten Tower, the latter can be a hard place to retrieve bodies because of all the obstacles on the floor.

Love these kid memories. At that time it was a success. Don't be ashamed, many have been through this at that time ! Normal Diablo back then was real tough.
