Well, I'm back in the land of Diablo, after a 3 month break to play World of
Warcraft. So since I'm back, and remembering a thread that I think Orion or
Jabber started a while back, I thought I'd list a few of the characters I'm
now playing and thinking about playing (season 2 ladder), and a few of the
good finds and stuff.

Current active crew:

Shaeko, level 90 Orb/Fireball/Hydra Sorceress. Just a whisker off level 91.
My primary magic finder.

Ooba, level 86 Traps Assassin. Magic Find duties also.

Zaphack, level 85 Enchant/Nova Sorceress. My current hell countess runner.
Currently packing a level 34 Nova.

CorbinDeBec, level 84 Polearm Whirlwind Barbarian. Still gets some work as a
magic finder.

ZackFwost, level 84 Holy Freeze Zealot. Recently completed his hell questing
with the rest of Team Rainbowfeet. Now the proud owner of a "Grief" phase
blade.

TheRedCross, level 83 Medic. Primary activity these days is to run the Crypt
and Mausoleum in hell difficulty, as they're full of undead (something he can
actually kill).

KungFury, level 80 Kicker/Blade Fury Assassin.

Nugget, level 79 Sword Frenzy Barbarian. Lover of cryptic swords - uses
Sazabi's set and a Frostwind. This one had a very good session with short
last night where I quested from mid act 3 to the beginning of act 5.

Bulzeye, level 75 Throwing Barbarian. I'll probably work on this guy some
more with short, once his new axe paladin approaches the end of nightmare
difficulty.

Current inactive crew:

Shuku, level 89 Javazon
Grizwold, level 83 Conviction Zealot
Zerberk, level 82 Zeal Barbarian
Tweebeard, level 80 Summoning Druid

Current pontifications:

All dexterity bowazon
Beekeeper
Concentrate barbarian
Double Swing barbarian using Oath and Crescent Moon
Some kind of shapeshifting druid
Some kind of necromancer
Tri-elemental sorceress
Wind druid

And the one that'll take some doing:

Paladin with six active auras

Recent good finds:

Aldur's Armour (hell pindleskin)
Bonehew (hell crypt)
Mang Song's Lesson (hell pindleskin)
Mavina's Bow (hell eldritch)
Nightwing's Veil (hell shenk)
+4 Ondal's Wisdom (pindleskin)
Skin of the Vipermagi 35% resist all (hell eldritch)
Ethereal Titans revenge (NM mephisto)
The Grandfather (hell ancients way)
Trang's Belt (hell pindleskin)
Viperfork (hell pindleskin)

Pul rune (hell countess)
Ist rune (hell countess)
Cham rune (hell bloody foothills)

Recent runewordings:

"Grief" phase blade
"Insight" Thresher x 2

how back are you? Did Shrak get off the ground - I have a hoarde urge for
the weekend - actually i want to try a shaman but may only make it to lvl 6
since that seems to be my stopping point for now.

Haven't seen one of these since 1.9. How viable are they in 1.10?

How well does she get along with that? And where does she primarily hit for
MF spots? Mine (lvl 76) seemed to slow waaay down once I entered Hell,
that's why I made the FO/FB Sorc.

He's cool. If I find a suitable stick for Obedience I might try one of

Or I guess I could just use that Ariocs I have laying around.

I might re-sign mine to active duty, a guy on the AB said his BF Assassin
using an Ethereal Hellslayer is doing over 2k damage. That's with Venom
though, and I don't know what other damage sources.

I'm now lvl 45 or 46, NM Act 3. I've killed the Council, and just need a
little side trip to Meph before I go on :) 
I will say that my Paladin needs some twinkage, and soon. Negative resists
in NM unless I have Salvation running. Then I can't Zeal, but I can kill
just about anything with Charge once I equip the Minotaur instead of the
Strength Runeword (or is it Steel?). Anyway, that low lvl one with CB.
Charge damage is up over 1500 with that thing already. I can't even imagine
what its going to be with Mr. Oath.

Good luck with that one :) 
Since we're making lists again (where is Whitedog?)

Beast/Buriza Bear, hopefully using CB w/Hunger for something different.
Will still have points in Maul though, just haven't decided on how many.
Another Kick/Furysin, or I might just kit up the one that stalled and
continue on with her.
Nova/Some other attack Sorc
Concentrate Barb


Recent good finds........Cerebus Bite (+4 Shapeshifting skills, I gave it to
Orion to find a home), Buriza, Arioc's and Thunderstrokes. Nothing very
Uber.

Nice to see you again SVH. Seems like the last few times I've been on,
we've been doing hell runs... seperately.

I found a couple nice things in the last few days... Arkaine's Valor,
Saz armor, twin Eldridge orbs (both +3) and Vampire Gaze to top it off.

How's the Insight Thresher?

Not bad actually. The synergies really help out. Mine stalled somewhere in
NM, but I should probably get her going again.

They're decently viable, with the synergy pumped and some good +skills
boosters. My last one stalled in 1.10 act 4 hell, but was because I was
trialing a Fireball/Charged Bolt combo, and went too heavy on the Fireball
side. It's a build that would definitely work with some tweaking, although
next time I'm considering something more 1.09 old-school -> orb/charged bolt.
I'm also considering comboing charged bolt with a non-synergised blizzard, as
I quite liked a blizard as a secondary on right click on a fireball sorceress
I played in ladder 1.

Sweet! Yesterday I beat a Tal Rasha's armour out of a skeleton boss pack on
the stairs to the foothills, so we're definitely on a roll.

>How's the Insight Thresher?

I love it! I think that new word opens up some new possibilities for me on
my clunker of a connection, such as a rocket sorceress with maxed block that
still has a good life total.

Another new build I'm considering is a new medic/undead hunter, with more
emphasis on conviction and fist of the heavens, with the merc (prayer, of
course) providing the meditation aura instead of the medic. I think Jabber
or Orion already has something done like this.

Great in areas where she can use Lightning Sentry to prep for the Death Sentry
chain, not so great with she has to use Fireblast. It's still decent enough
(around level 29 or 30, I think she has)

She's currently using a prayer mercenary, which was a little experiment of
mine, following on from my last trapper, which used a defiant, and the one
before that who used a 1.09 rogue.

Enchant is one level lower, at 33, although Firemastery is still only twenty
something, due to having to put 40 in nova/LM. One hard point in Fireball
(and one hard point in firebolt, too, those being just pre-reqs in this build)
gives it about 500 max damage at present, hehe. Next time we hit a LI
council pack and the mercs croak, I'll use that! ;-) Just be sure to
bring to a good book to read...

I was lucky enough to find a Tomb Reaver a few months back, so that's his
end-game weapon. Earlier on, he used the unique bec de corbin. :-)

Someone in an agd yard sale needs to give us some stormlashes...

Mine uses an eth heavens light at the moment, and before that she used an eth
bartucs claw.

It's going to be wicked!

Yes, that one could take a while. I made a list of all the runes required
for the various runewords, and it's pretty scary stuff.

One thing to keep in mind with Fireblast is that your IAS with
the equipped claws matters a lot, because it works in situations
where the monster is standing still and you are firing off
a fast stream of bombs. The stream speed depends on your IAS.

Is that including the big BF penalty for 2h weapon damage?

> Someone in an agd yard sale needs to give us some stormlashes...

I recently traded an UM for low end one that I'm going to try
along with Gimmershred. BA merc is pretty essential for
both these weapons and BF. Rich people can get big
bonus points for giving the merc one of those high end
conviction sticks and getting a Dream shield or helm on

Ethereal rune master with a bunch of eths and a might merc would
be decent to.

Hrm, I think mine's using a Might Merc. He does OK in most places, but for
some reason it seems not having a weapon or armor has taken away most of his
will to live.

Hehe, good idea. Can't be any worse than my Static Field I was trying to
use on an LI boss a few nights ago.
For some reason I thought Lightning Immune said Lightning Enchanted, and was
wondering why there were no sparks.......(it was also 4am)

It also lists itself as Very Fast Attack Speed, rather than "Slow" like the
2 axes I have currently equipped, so that has to help.

I have 1 more spot on shorts4 I think, and I could always delete the old
ladder Tal's Sorc. I suppose I should still offload more of my non-ladder
stuff instead of deleting it all. I don't have much left though.

I'm seriously considering some mule accounts now too. Hell, with all of my
AFK time I could have had 10 more accts burned in just this week. With all
the stuff just piling up a little at a time, half of my characters I
couldn't play if I wanted to.

We need a Diablo2 Ministorage.

I don't know, does the Character Screen take the penalty into account when
displaying the damage? I haven't questioned him further on it, but I plan
to eventually.

If memory serves, Ooba's primary claw has either 30 or 40 IAS on it, for that
very reason. I think it's +2 assassin skills rather than +3 traps, and her
secondary is still just a bartucs. I haven't really had much motivation to
shop for claws for quite a while, so no fancy +3 traps with +3 LS/DS
scratchies for her, yet.

There were some exceptional weapons that I wanted to try out in upgraded form,
too, but just never had the opportunity to.

I should have been a bit more specific, too - the "eth" heaven's light in this
case means the heaven's light itself is ethereal, and it's socketed with eth
runes. I'm quite happy with it, for now, until she gets her hands on some
of the heavy hitters.

Interesting. I'll try a Might guy for the next one. The Shadow Master is
pretty low level in the current iteration, so I doubt I'd benefit as much from
a Might aura.

Turns out Corbin is actually 87, not 84. But yeah, it's pretty fun. I use a
holy freeze mercenary on him, so make battles against mana burn creatures a
little less painful (well, in theory, anyway).

We could always share a few mule accounts, instead of you burning in a ton
more. It would make sense, since we end up sharing stuff anyway. I think I
emailed you the passwords a while ago, but I'll give them to you again when I
see you online. I have just a very small set, right now, with one account
for jewelry, gems, runes, etc, with a few armour mules on the same account,
one account for sets, and one for weapons, since I offloaded much of it on
team uww anyway. We could maybe move the armour mules to a new account, and
make more room on the first for crafting fodder and stuff.

I have the passwords for your 1, 2, and 3 mule accounts, are those the ones
you're referring to? I could very well start loading them up with all the
low level uniques and sets I seem to find :)

Sure is! She gave me an arreats one day when I was hunting for one, and then
when I tried to give it back when I found one of my own, she wasn't having
none of it. So I gave the arreats to short, instead, I think.

That's pretty much what I thought, as I was joking about people dropping them
in a yard sale.

Hehe.

Items having a habit of turning up eventually, and if they don't, I simply
make do with something else (and I'm a big fan of finding my own stuff, and
have only made two trades in the last couple of years). If a stormlash does
turn up, I think my Conviction Zealot will be the first in line to claim it.

I think you did. Or was it that Demonhorns Edge, or whatever its called?

Anyway, I'll gladly trade it in on a Jalal's if you have one, the Bear will
be started way sooner than the Concentrate Barb.

Zealot would be a good choice, and since I have a Zeal/Smiter, he'd be
pretty pissed if he didn't get it.

Yep yep, I still have my little word document where I crunched numbers n'

And eth Fleshripper would be sweet as, too. I found a couple of 'rippers
last season, but neither was eth, alas.

First thing I'd do would be to gut that toolbox account (apart from your pally
and sorc, of course) and put classified mules on it. But one account is too
small for a proper mule setup, anyway. I need at least four accounts just to
sort of what's going on, unless you feel like having windforces and el runes
on the same mule.

Okay, so had a bit of a peek, and kai and I tried to do your jade statue quest
for you, but baffle.net was having none of that and refused to drop one. We
did get your lam esen book quest done, though.

HOBL is the same scepter I used on TheRedCross. It's a nice piece, indeed.
However, I'm going to try and get my A into G this time around and do some
shopping, not just for a nice +2/Holy bolt/Holy Shield/Conviction/Faster Cast
scepter (okay, so I'm dreaming), but some new traps claws for Ooba.

So, anyway, back to the paladin... my plan is to make another medic, but this
time less on the undead holy bolting power, and stronger fist of the heavens.
Not necessarily with high holy shock (although that would be nice), but high
conviction and healing/undead hitting power from maxed holy bolt and prayer.
Mercenary will most likely be, this time around, prayer with an insight
polearm.

ZackFlash is currently level 4, and attempting to catch up to short's axe
paladin, hehe.

And on a different note, the other build I'm considering is a fisting, holy
shock avenger - max FOTH, holy shock, resist lightning, some vengeance, some
conviction (5-6+ in holy shield, as always). Who knows, maybe a Might
mercenary with a Reapers, or maybe one of those Lawbringer barbs.

Shark never got off the ground. You're going to have to get someone else to

Okay. Well I think most of us are pretty intent on the chars we have in
progress atm. I'm going to play ahoarde char some this weekend for a change
of pace but intend to get one or both hunters to 20 before any thing else
major.

I think my Conviction Zealot would probably pass out if he ever ended up with
one.

That's the ones, although jabs wants to get in on the shared mule action too,
so we might have to discuss it a bit more.

Fair enough. Yeah, I'll probably stop by from time to time, but it'll only
be to play the alliance characters anyway, mostly the rogue. I've only
played about an hour in the last week or so, though. I'll come back once I'm
bored with D2 again, and then I'll go back to D2 once I get bored with WOW,
etc, although much of times I feel like playing tend to coincide with the
"weekly maintenance/whoops, we f*ed the servers again, we're working on it"
times.

I think you already gave that Eth one to me :) 

But it only has 11 durability, so even getting my Def up a high as I can it
still wouldn't last very long.

We're making progress! I played for just a bit after you signed off last
night, so I'm now 58. If I ever get to 66 and equip that Axe I can wait for
you to catch up, I just can't wait to see what that damage turns out to be.


Seeing as how the Minotaur already does 3500 Charge damage, that Oath
should just about quadruple :)  That's with 10 or 15 points in Charge, and 5
in Vigor. Oh, and 20 in Fanat.

I should get Emilio up to level 25 today, and then it'll be all systems go!

Should be sweet. Hey, you could make yourself a "Passion" axe to go with it,
and 'zerk the okies with it. Could be a bit of a laugh.

E just hit 22 burning in a mule game. Not sure how when or for how long I'll
be around today, but I might spend most of that time running meph and countess
for a few goodies. Gotta start stockpiling those ist runes!

Two, actually, one last season, one this (last season was sword, this season
it was mace). The only drawback, other than it not having the greatest ED in
the world compared to a lot of the high rune words (but then, the highest rune
is only a Lem, after all), is the hit causes monster flee. You'll just have
to make sure you get one or two hit kills. ;-)
