First Diablo III Paragon 1000 Livestream

Gabynator's Twitch channel is currently live-streaming this Diablo III player's final push to become the first to achieve Paragon Level 1000 in the action RPG. No word if there's a video anywhere of the thousands of hours of play that have led to this point. Thanks Rhialto.

He was using the Crusader when he broke 1000, critting for ~65mil in T6... and those were just the ones I could read.

Twitch cracked down on copyrighted music being played, presumably after some prompting from RIAA or suchlike. It would be played unaltered (unlike the game, where the player alters it) so it would need to be licensed for broadcast. That doesn't mean it has to be terrible but it limits their options.

verybad1, link?

Why do people who twitch use the worst music possible?

It's like a rule of streaming that the person will have awful taste in music that they want to force on the world.

Also the people who get access to games pre-release and stream it are always the worst players imaginable and make the games seem terrible.

More likely, that if they play anything remotely popular then they'll be getting hit up by the nice folks at RIAA

Really? I'm 250+ and didn't really think I had played THAT much. I only started 3 weeks prior to the expansion and haven't been in the game a month now... The first 100 really aren't much of a big deal.
I played myself out pretty hard when the RMAH was up across two accounts, so after that I didn't really want to play all that much. I just started a new game with a full quest reset though, so who knows maybe I'll start playing more. But I need to finish my skyrim run first, only 200 hours in on this playthrough so I figure another 250 and I'll finish.

Same, I'm at 65 and I think I picked up 40-45 of those levels during the xp boost before the expansion launched.

I don't want to brag, but I've picked BOTH of my nostrils at once in the past, if anyone's interested, I can do this on a live stream...

No new paragon portrait for 1000? What the fuck, lol. People have been complaining about how little difference there is between every 10 levels, you should have something amazing for 1000... If it were a topless Leah, you'd have at least a few dozen people hitting that level by now.

But she is topless in act 4.... ;p

Done... I saw the new Paragon portrait message but cannot spot any differences.

True that I'm not sure the game deserve that much play time but oh well, to each his own.

Wow, here's hoping he still has the leg function to get up and stumble into a shower.

The game is really not anywhere near good enough to put those kind of hours in, damn.

Isn't the paragon system one of those exponential things? As in it takes like 30% longer to get the next level than it did the previous one? If so, just getting from 999 to 1000 must have taken like 500 hours.

Ugh
Yup, it takes 47b XP from 999 to 1000
