Hi guys,

thx for inviting me! :)

https://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads/gaminggrandpa-goes-hc-timetravel.967047/ is the original thread! Will take some time in the future to edit this post!

Yesterday EoEF_Arcains found her first 1.07 ArKains! Than I lvled my clean allrdy rushed Sorc and specced her into Meteor cause I rly liked Hydra and wanted to keep the Arkain´s rack!

Was lvl 4x in hell! ~~ Since I allrdy had my Arkains and most important item would most likely be a Gerkes since I kinda need the FC from Valcerie Wing over Shako if using Arkain´s I figured I might do some NM LK! Got a super stable 20sec no enemies Winged Helmet rack. Was going to farm it, but motivation was super low, as I allrdy have 1 Valcerie Wing and 4Gfaces left. To good to pass anyways... since you never know when you´ll need a new Valcerie Wing in HC! Took a break as motivation was low.......... 2nd game after break I hit hell. Was kinda pissed, but guess mixing NM and Hell runz will lead to mistakes. Took the risk and ported through Nila Temple lvl 1 which is dangerous, to reach lvl 2 which is kinda super save as there are no bosses and only Skelletons, Tongue dudes and those World Stone Overseers! Got 3 out of 3 Runz the following results after like 3 mapresets! Guess wayne Valcerie Wing! :)

So I´m almost 500 runz in! Dropped 2rare Shakos and 3rare Champions Axes!

Also found that doing the racks the other ways will end in War Boots, what might be smart to run aswell! Yesterday I tryied to lvl a Necro in 1.06 as I wanted to hold on my Shako rack, but I guess I´ll give it up anyways as soon as Ill have a Harle! Harle is not as good as Arkains, I also got a Valcerie WIng and both Valcerie Wing and Harle can drop while playin. Even so I hope this is not just in Cow, as I read some itemz only drop in hell cow?

€: I´m 1124 Runz in, so definitly more than 1000Shakos without a Harle! Guess I can´t be lucky every time!

Yo guys,

just finished lvl 72 on my Sorc, so my merc can use Bul´s small sword! I allrdy feel quit strong (saying that I hope the next thing won´t be me dieing! :eek:) Dunno if Meteor was the smartest choice to push 99, but at least it´s fun and definitly not bad! SO far I´m doing Frozen River Runz, cause there are no light immunes there! Ofc I´m looking forward to lvl 85 when I´ll be able to use Arkains, but this will be a huge grind. The problem ofc is, that solid drops aren´t unlikly as in 1.14, but nearly impossible. Afaik I didn´t drop a single unique from any enemies on this sorc. Having said that there were some nice also not rly good finds from racks btw. blue gothic armor is the number one dropping item:

€ Just tested that Glacial Trial Cellar is quit good with meteoer aswell! Got it super close to wp, so guess Ill run this!

Yo guys,

converted some itemz to 1.13d since I feel more like playin 1.14. The worst part about it is, that Diablo II was able to write "Ü" "Ä" "Ö" back in the days, but lost the possibility to do so along the way. So I found my char called Ru in 1.13 and deleted it, cause I figured it´s a Atma bug and not my "Rüstungen" char. Therefor lost a nice low lvl Armor with ~3x life 17CR 48LR and a 91Life Gothic Armor which could have gotten 4soxx!

Also had 3 eth cryptic axes. Should have done more Runz on that rack, but whatsoever. I was like....they had 4soxx in 50% of the samplesize (non eth) so let´s give it a shot and socket (Larzuk) it in 1.07:

The damage Andy did was kinda surprising. Besided that I´m clearing well in A2 p8!

Having said that, I´m debatting to give up on p8 only. I rly like CS Runz, so doing CS over Nila for 98 would be fun. Besides that I feel like 99 with Singleplayer itemz only in HC is difficult enough to put further stones in my way. Ofc I would be using every edge that´s not restricted then, but that´s kinda how I like to play!

Played a ARPG from Good Game Guys lately, but didn´t rly enjoy it anymore!

So I finished rushing my mules to A5 norm for Socketquests. Decided I would go with variable player settings. Kinda glad, as Duriel NM wasn´t difficult, but thinking bout players 8 Duriel Hell...dunno how I did that on past playthroughs! What so ever...... atm rushing players 1 nm, and I´m teleing, dropping Blizz, teleing as if I was 21 again! :D Have to learn teletrick though, as that one wasn´t known when I was 21! :eek:

Will not sleep before Rip or Hell Anya........ RIP would rly suck, as I would lose my 1.07 Harle, and I don´t have a rack anymore!

€: And yeah was thinking about deleting my transfer Chars, just to realize there is Arkains and Harle and Gulli on them! :( Had made savegames before transfering, but dunno if that would have been allowed and even if I´m glad I don´t have to go down that road!

€2: Had to reset den, cause of CI/PI Boss! 2nd Run I found a Maras 21! Afaik this is the first unique Amy since I restarted 6 weeks ago!

€3: And I decided not to be retarded and lvl to 85 in Ancient Tunnels before progressing!

Decided to go Maxblock as Arkain´s gives so much life, that statting Vita is procentual less life!

So I lvled to 86 in Ancient Tunnels just to decide again not to be retarded and farm a CtA! So I started running LK! The first try I got a nice map. It´s not ideal, but I kept it as I just wanna farm a CtA and not several HRs. Found a IST so far, and yesterday when I wanted to farm a Shael from countess I dropped a Mal....... so basically only Ohm missing. While searching OHM I dropped a Shako roflmao! That led to me checking how much life I gain by my 1.07 Shako, and it´s really kinda disappointing. Only 219....... guess as soon as I´ll switch to Hoto I´ll go with a 1.13 Shako, as Ill need the Mana when Spirit is missing!

€: And add a Gul!

€2: And a Sur! :D

€3: Just one more Gul in all the runz since than! But: I gained 400 Life through charms. By now my Shako is almost 300life! Using the time to train tele trick! :D

€4: Have one more Gul, so Gul, Vex or Ohm will net CtA! Inbefore bo1 again! :( Found that beauty:

I was doing some Meph Runz to get my Merc a Tals Mask to start CS Runz! Was super lucky and got it after around 60 Runz!

I´ve read that one would like to use Delirium on a Merc! Is that true if one has no other sources of LL?


I clipped myself on CS Runz as of now! I´m definitly not the most skilled player, and even I can imrpove, as I just started. But I figured I might show what it looks like now, to show the difference when I´ll hopefully have better gear and skill!

KInda risky to grab that SC whilst AD on me! :(

Feedback is very welcome! I´m afraid to die ofc and I wasted too much time on Infi as I would say!

€: I decided to go p8 CS as I basically only need a Arach by now, which I guess will drop eventually! For now I´ll go with 63FC Cap!

€2:
Yo guys, small update: Did something I never thought would be worth it, but with no Skillers or forbidden things the +2 Skills from Spirit are very welcome. Managed to craft a 35% Spirit in the fifth of five tries, and so also reached the 105fc Cap! Had to respecc in NM, so my AT map is gone! :( Realized that I gain more damage but tele feels way better and damage seems to be way better aswell! ATM using a String of Ears which should be Verdungos, but is very well rolled.

Found a super imba SC with 20Life 8FRes!

Felt mentally ill the last few days, so not too much XP was going on!

Yo, took a break and played mainly CRPGs in hardcore, what ended in a lot of repetitive storry skipping! Sadly what happened is what happens very often. When I started out I didn´t wanna go, cause .07 Arkains and Harle were in the far future...... then I want nothing as much as a quested 1.13 Sorc with those two itemz...... but as soon as I got it all done I lose motivation!

I´m 94 1/3........ found Nats armor and a Rising Sun. Drops feel horrible! :( Having said this, atm I´m having fun!

€: Whinning about bad drops I found 2 IK Armors. Not that I will ever use them, but nice anyways!

Yo guys.... kinda quit on the SP for now! Back to that D2 Multiplayer Mod (Not 100% sure if I´m allowed to write about it) and played the D2 Classic Hardcore Reset (I hope I´m allowed to write about that) where I managed to be #1 after Dia hell kill, what´s ofc due to missing competition! But we had a quit good team anyways...... still our core team is #1 through #4!

Hope to cu soon.....and if I´m not allowed to write about B.Net adventures just let me know!
