Gobsmacked!

A guy called Steelmage has reached level 100 in SSF Legacy Hardcore, in a little over 2 weeks. I wouldn't have thought that was even remotely possible. He is, surely, the no.1 POE player of all time. Steelmage, if you are reading this, maximum RESPECT to you.
Favourite armour? Hmmm, I forget it's name, but it's that scarlet one that whatsherface wears when she wants to look splendid.

I like Marmite.

people always make such a big deal about how hard it is to get to level 100 and the need to trade to get there, it's not been a problem to get there for years...you don't need to trade, you just need to grind like fuck and be lucky with map drops and not die

Trading is used to make poor players able to achieve stuff they wouldn't normally be able to do. That has little to do with an experienced player being able to do the same thing without trading. You also have to question if this is one person. It's likely an account shared by a team, playing 24/7 for 16 days.

Uh, no. He's one person. Another post from you where you make a pile of assumptions, mostly on the cynical side of what you cannot understand.

You can 100% get there, and quite easily. Most of us have day jobs though, and get burnt out pretty fast.

Had the pleasure of chatting with steelmage at a meetup a few years back. Top bloke, very humble, down to earth. The very embodiment of an Aussie quiet achiever.

He's part of the most underrated guild on PoE, Alpha Crucis Exiles. These guys are zero bullshit, zero ego, 100% hardcore Exiles. I was on a guild podcast/interview with their leaders once and it was the most awesome experience. I felt utterly outclassed but was honoured to be invited.

Now and then a member of my non-guild graduates to ACE. It always gives me a big old grin.

I salute you, oh Great Poopsocker Extraordinaire!

Seriously though, quite an accomplishment.

"just". And it's more than luck. Steelmage apparently died at 93...and still got first 100. That takes serious knowledge of how to play the game efficiently.

I'll alert the ace folks re this thread BTW. Always nice to spread the love.

Cheers for the share. I've forwarded it on to Steel (who is now re-rolling in regular LHC for fun with) who appreciates the comments.

I hope everyone is enjoying the league, there certainly is a lot of options and I think the foiled cards are brilliant (although I am yet to have one drop... just dinged 90).

Happy hunting and enjoy all.
