Median XL or ultimative

Post by zaphodbrx on Tue Sep 17, 2013 3:39 pm

Hi guys,

When I started playing this mod about 2 months ago, I didn't know what ultimative was. Mostly because the download page on the main site doesn't say anything about it.

Now I have some idea, but not much. Since MXL chars can't be converted to ultimative, I was thinking of starting all over. But then I haven't really explored MXL very much, I don't know what the barb or paladin or sorc skills do at all, almost. I want to play the whole classic MXL once first, but tell me is there something that I'm really missing?

What are the pros and cons of MXL vs ultimative?

Thanks

MXL is harder in the beginning, easier in the end and has less content.
Ultimative is easier in the beginning, harder in the end and has more content.

Also, I don't think Barbarian, Sorceress and Paladin skills really differ between these 2. (Sure they may be some tweaks, but the mainspells are the same iirc)

In terms of difficulty, I'd say Ultimative is definitely more challenging and a bit harder, but a lot more interesting (because of massive content, compared to mxl)... Definitely choose Ultimative, you won't regret it...

Well, he obviously thought on comparison between older versions (Omega, 2012) and Ultimative... Mr Green

What I mean to say is that I don't know what sorc, barb, etc. skills are at all, practically. Since I haven't played any class other than amazon and druid. I was thinking I will explore MXL thoroughly and then maybe move to ultimative.

Another thing I was thinking is that I want to start a co-op project with a friend and was thinking of the right game to pick to level up from scratch. There's MXL of course, and ultimative, also D2LoD, Hell unleashed and few other games like Torchlight.

uhhh don't do D2LoD.

Hell Unleashed is kinda fun, but Median XL (+Ultimative) is tha bomb.
I suggest doing Ultimative from the start instead of MXL. That way you don't have to level the same characters 100 times, plus you get used to all the new stuff from the start.

Ultimative>all. More items, more enemies, more quests, new skills, more difficulty. Result: tons of fun
