@Grisu I also enjoyed the video. Your english is fine, I had no problems understanding you at all...

Your playstyle is very similar to my own for tournaments, not so surprising as I also picked up a lot of tips from @jiansonz back in the day.

One tip I'd offer is that since you had to be lvl6 to shop a ringmail, unless you have no plans to point Burst of Speed, you could have gone ahead and done so just to speed up the shopping (it makes quite a difference, when the gate/waypoint aren't right next to Charsi)

You probably should find some way to let viewers skip the shopping, though...it wasn't bad in this video, but over the course of a whole playthrough...

@Dazliare 10, Holy Shield


I as well am ready for my next one, Duriel was taken pretty easy on /p8. I was able to make a Savage Halberd with 30% ias (level req 26) Pretty strong!

Mephisto has been properly executed. He shall now damn my soul and take away possibly a portion of my recently untapped power.

Screenshot139.png

Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. That is a Cold Iron Wolf! I have a Kelpie Snare on switch to slow target (though how long does it last? Does anyone know? I don't think it is one hit and done, is it?) The wolves and the Spirit give me enough meat shields to block out the damage that is incoming while he freezes everything.

And here is a look at my stats on my way to face Diablo. If I can get a few more MDR I will. Note this act will be done entirely on /p1 because well..I don't like normal Act 4.

I think I have my character planned out now:

I will try to go for a trapper with Shadow Master and do the following:

Act I (20 pts total): CM1, Hammer 1, BoS 1, Cos 1, Fire last 12, Shock Web 1, CB Sentry1, WoF 1.

Thus probably forgoing the chance to go MA. But even if FB gets banned, it still has 12 synergy points for 4 additional DS blasts and should make Act I a cakewalk.

Act II (29 pts total): Shadow Warrior 1,Fade 1. Then it gets tougher: FB to 19 in case it gets banned? It is only 2 additional shots for DS though and no synergy for LS. So if Duriel bans FB, it would leave me with DS and LS and I would have wasted 7 points I could instead have used in a synergy for LS. So maybe I will save the points and see what gets banned.

Act III (33 pts total)
1 DS, 10 LS

Act IV (38 pts total)
15 LS

Act V (52 pts total)
20 LS, rest in FB/SM and /or DS depending on damnation rolls.

Save the seal for DS damnation.

Even if I get super unlucky with damnations early on in Normal (FB, LS, DS and SM) I could switch to a synergized Fire Trapper (even if they are weaker) with Shadow Warrior and seal for DS.

We will see how this works out. But now I have a path to pursue :)

@Grisu I like your way of thinking, especially since it does have a resemblance to my assassin which you have to trash ;)

On another note, I enjoyed your ramblings during your playthrough :D
I'm not much of a youtube watcher, feeling too passive not working the keyboard, but I found it quite meditative to listen to your commenting while pushing forward with my own toon.
I will definitely follow your video progress, so long as you enjoy doing it and not just succumbs to this needy audience always craving more of your soul :LOL:

Blame the weather or the Evil, but not the roller ;-)

As a Paladin that's the tougher spot for sure...in your case it went very quickly! Hopefully that's Normal (right?) so... it's still better now than later, we already know that it will be a Seal use, but the question is more about NM...

Good luck to you @Dazliare!

Act 2 is done - don't have time to do a full write up and will do one tomorrow, but in the meantime if someone could do my Duriel roll, that'd be appreciated.

Currently my only damnation is Corpse Explosion (thanks @Babyhell ;))

Picked Terra back up in Act II. I am quite impressed at how well Multishot is killing, she's like a machine gun. The very low numbers on bows are deceptive. Once you account for 5 arrows and a 49% chance of doing double damage, she kills faster than the merc. I'm trying to keep my MS level lower, since it's very mana intensive. Going to level 10+ would not be sustainable with her current mana. Notable finds in the act included Biggon's Bonnet (amazingly the second one I've found in two characters in D2R) and Crushflange. I'm holding on to the Crushflange for now, I don't anticipate every trying to CB down a boss, but just in case. Here's the Duriel kill:
Screenshot017.png

I will need a damnation roll please!

Strategy wise, I went ahead and put 1 point into the javelin skills, probably a waste, but if going the bow route, I should have extra skill points. I haven't decided what I'll do if MS gets damned, using a seal on it doesn't seem worth it, but we'll see. Fire Arrow was my first banned skill, a question for my own edification, does that mean that during subsequent rolls skills like Exploding Arrow and Immolation Arrow are now not included in the rolling, since I can't even access them? Or can they be rolled (obviously I'm hopeful they can, as fire bow skills were the one route I am deadset against going)?

@skoolbus 11, Impale



I also need a damnation roll as Baal has fallen. I will have my skill rolled as I don't want to lose an equipment slot to magic yet.

Screenshot143.png

I'll do a full update after the roll, a few levels, and cow king is dead. Need a better weapon as mine is starting to feel weak.
