Even if I had use it, all my characters have the same prefix, and thus it would have been free for you anyway. My Level 43 Summoner (FNX-DeathHorde) is wearing the following stuff :

Biggin's Bonnet (my best gear)
Magic Amulet 14% MF
+3 Skeletons magic wand
+6 strength quilted armor
14% res all magic buckler
24% MF boots
22% MF gloves
64 Life belt
crappy magic rings with some resistances / strength

As you can see, I'm not the rich man I used to be :lol: ! AND GOD I LIKE THAT :winner: !!!!!

GOGO SKELETONS
DIE MAGGOTS DIIIIE .. HAHAHA

PH33344RR MY SK3L3T0N5 !!!!!!!!!!!!!11!!1!23!132!123 :flip:

Level 20 Skelemancer... let's see if I remember my equipment:

+3 Raise Skeleton wand
+1 Clay Golem, +1 Weaken head
Studded leather armor (I think)
Chain Boots
Sash
2 random magic rings with "nothing" on them
Leather gloves with +1 something, IIRC
no amulet
some rare skull cap, but I don't remember the mods --- I just saw it's rare, so I ditched the plain cap I had before :)

My merc (blessed aim) is wearing a scale mail (IIRC), no helmet (I think... totally forgot that) and this unique bardiche thing.

The char is mostly helpless, but that was to be expected. I joined random games to get past Andariel, Duriel and Mephisto --- the last two were quite an effort (Mephisto in particular --- people were running to him like there was a time limit, so they had to deal with Bremt *and* Mephisto *and* some random monsters at the same time...). I managed to summon a lvl 39 sorc for Diablo, which he handled quite decently --- so no problem there. Too bad that the skill doesn't work reliably...

Plans for the next days are to level to 30-40, rush mules to hellforge, and hope that people sell gear for gems :) I also hope to be able to handle nightmare reasonably at some point, to open up nightmare forges. Last season I also procured some intermediate gear from nightmare mephisto...

That's pretty much the crucial point --- if I *can* get gear (from the trade forum here; bnet prices during the last seasons were way too high for me, for many items --- people asking more for 1 piece than I had payed for the whole collection...) within the first few weeks I'll continue playing, else this season is finished for me.

Heh. Here's my character:
Ultima-X, Level 47(or 48) "Vegasorc"(and I haven't messed with the meteor part yet)

Helmet: 2 Socketed War Hat
Body Armour: 1 Socketed Linked Mail
Boots: Superior Demonhide Boots*
Gloves: Venom Grips!
Belt: Demonhide Sash
Ring one: Cathan's Seal
Ring two: +85 AR Magic Ring
Amulet: +5 Energy Magic Amulet
Weapon: Rare ethereal Double Axe, with a whopping +5 MPK!
Shield: Rare ethereal Defender**
Weapon 2: Lochaber Axe
*I was playing in a game with another person in act 1. I killed an unnamed enemy and some Infernostrides popped up. The person I was playing with(an Amazon) took them, saying that she needed it. When I asked her if she had any other fire resistance, she said she had an Ancient's Pledge in a shield, and I told her that I had nothing on for res, not even the act 5 quest. I still didn't get them...:(
**The Defender dropped from Normal Hephasto. He isn't high enough in level to drop a Visceratuant. If you look at my shield, you'll see it is a 3x durability shield. Any connections? I almost had an ethereal Visceratuant...:(

I'm currently at level 7, got some playing time yesterday. I'm currently using the wand i started, some crude hat, boots, a leather armor, a buckler, and those crappy rings that you find at the start (like, of Craftsmanship).

Under your bed
Studzilla lvl68(ish) Frenzy barb

Seriously, I can't even remember his level, and that is one BAD sign. Two consecutive all nighters, and today I'm supposed to mark exams. I say we give everyone 80 and call it a day.

Helm: +2 Masteries Rare Avenger Guard. Appears Red....spiffy.
Ammy: +27mf
Armour: Rockfleece
Sword1: The Patriarch
Sword2: Rare Shamshir with (get this.) 386% ed!! and 8% mana leech
Belt: Goldwrap
Boots: Gorefoot
Gloves: Ghoulhide
Ring1: Platinum of the leech +120ish AR, 4%LL
Ring2: Cathan's Seal

As you can see I've gotten pretty lucky early on. I find it hilarious that I'm finding the same things now that I would find with my 450mf sorc before the reset. Some things never change.
As of today, my summer of play is over. If you want to trade for any of this, contact *gored, as he's inheriting the works.
