one of the exception to the 150000 kill rule is for pet users, which says they need 75000 or something like that.
Just a question, do all side quests have to be a) Completed and be Completed in order? For example the guys in Old Eleusis are very tough to kill early on, so do I have to kill them asap or can they be killed after I become good enough to kill them?

Now a Level 9 Druid, with a Spear, shield and a staff, and just completed "the necklace quest". Am at the fountain after this, have killed everything and explored everything there, done all quests and I've taken screenshots as proof:
AFAIK there is no need to complete any/all of the SQs
Also, how effective is Plague? Iirc it's later skills in the tree such as fatigue are very useful, but Plague on its own seems quite useless. Or is it like Squall where it's only useful later on/maxed?
Maxed out Plague is an amazing tool that greatly lowers resists, move speeds, and has a chance to take off 50% of their health. It works even better in X-Max, since the large amount of mobs means it spreads even more.
I would go 8/1/8 in the Plague tree when you get the chance.
I'm not sure how effective it is at lower levels - on my Guardian, I respecced and maxed out Plague instantly, and noticed a huge difference in killing potential. I never had a chance to level it gradually. I'm assuming it's not so great until Plague and the top synergy are maxed.

Defeated Nessus, saved Hippias, spoken to Leonidas, and am now at the fountain after Nessus. Am a Level 11 Druid, with 0 deaths and 0 potions. Screenshots as proof:
