Help for Hardcore Kasmir Pleeze - And me too!

Archived from groups: alt.games.diablo (More info?)

My friend Kasmir is making a HC Furysin and it has been explained to
him how he can place skill points. I think he has a map made. Other
ideas may be helpful.

He got himself a Blessed Aim merc. After he and I discussed mercs, he
decided he was going to get defense, then turned around and got the BA
merc. Does BA help the BF attack rating or does that thing hit all the
time? Well at any rate the BA will help all the mercs in the party, and
Caal's druid and minions and I think Caal has a defiance merc so if the
3 of us are together we have one of each - I have a prayer merc for my
enchantress.

For future reference does BA help BF? My guess is "no".

Also I assume that Fire Mastery helps increase the damage that enchant
adds to weapons..

I created an enchantress on an account that me, Kasmir and Caal share.

With the extra PCs we have at our disposal, this seemed like a good
idea to be able to throw her into town and just pop out to charge us up
whenever needed. She just hit level 18 so she is no longer a virgin
when it comes to enchanting. :)

To max echant, warmth and Fire mastery it appears that level 57 through
at least NM radament will give her maximum enchant, disregarding +
skills. A non-lethal rush into hell will put her there to give us extra
pop during our journey through hell, when we arrive there. Please note
my use of the word "when" and not "if".

I don't see any point in playing her in the battle areas of Hell or
even NM once she is maxed on the enchanting ability. Being an
"enchantress" she has other assets far more valuable, if you catch my
drift.

    Yes, it will help him a lot on higher levels if he gets that
    far as there is no skill based way to upgrade the AR of
    BF for non-claw weapons and for claw weapons the AR boost
    of claw mastery is not enough.

    > Also I assume that Fire Mastery helps increase the damage that enchant

    Yep. The AR from enchant will help him hit also.

    Didn't really catch the drift of your last paragraph.
    If you are playing together you can loot the other person's
    corpse in HC unless you are worried about both croaking at
    the same time.

    One word; passives. I like to put a minimum of 3-5 hard points into dodge,
    evade and avoid. Staying alive is job #1 in HC. Ideally you want 100%
    Piercing to optimize LF. But don't put too many points into Pierce as you
    might find/get a Razortail belt which has 66% piercing.

    BA is fine for normal difficulty. I suggest he get a Holy Freeze (NM
    Defense) merc when he gets to NM A2. That will slow the baddies down and
    help him survive.

    > Also I assume that Fire Mastery helps increase the damage that enchant

    Yes, FM increases the damage of Enchant. For the Enchantress herself, it
    increases her Enchant damage double for melee attacks. Once for the initial
    cast, then again it is applied when hitting. Similarly, Ltg mastery and Cold
    Mastery also multiply her lightning and cold damage when hitting in melee.

    Or, you could use the one I built already. She's on my Bongo-Fury2 account,
    which you have access to. She's got all the levels and skills, but she's a
    little shy on gear. After an hour of shopping she was only able to find a +2
    Enchant staff. So she could have a slightly better Leaf staff. A +3 fire
    skills Ammy and Circlet would really help her out as well. Add in a pair of
    Magefist gloves, and some + skills armor and she'll be excellent for buffing
    up characters.

    When do you guys usually play? I'm only on sporatically, but anytime I have
    been on lately I haven't seen any of you, and I do look. Would you like/be
    able to schedule a regular weekly game? Nothing as formal as the untwinked
    team. But a designated time each week when whomever is available would know
    there would be a game.

    Regards-

    Yes but only once. For the double application, try looking on the AB
    Sorc forum. There's a nice enchantress guide there.

    Enchantress is one of the best things for a BF sin as AR is really hard
    to come by, as noted above.

    Big jump next level though, she gets a nice "Leaf" staff. +6 to
    enchant.

    Max chant requires 62 Skill points, so if you do all skill points
    quests up to act 2 nm, then it will require lvl 55. I guess that's what
    you were talking about.

    Yeah, keeping her in town is a good idea. If you have enough computers,
    you might as well also keep a BO barb in town too. He only needs to be
    45 for max BO (he can use +3 WC weapons).
