This was a somewhat tough character to play at the start, simply because I didn't have much of a way to deal with LIs, but once my merc got a 370+ ED Partizan in his hands, everything went smoothly. The Shadow Master saved my life several times with Mind Blast as well. She also found a Harlequin Crest in the Frozen Tundra, but decided to use the Nat's set pieces instead. 3 more to go now! :drink:
Wow, 2 in a row! So, how close are the other 3 (if started yet) to patriarch-ship?
a nice setup as well.
Wow, you mentioned it in my thread and I thought I had already checked it. But this is ANOTHER mat!! Awesome! Congratulations! :thumbsup:
I had started a trapsin once, bue she got boring to me because I set up my traps and then... and then? I had nothing to do then... Maybe throw shockwebs, but... dunno. What did you do? I might try one with Fireblast as a second element/backup. :)
Nice achievement!
farting bob: The Paladin, Sheng-Wu, is currently in Act 5 Normal, I believe. The Amazon, Rikku, is in Act 4 Hell, and the Druid isn't started yet, I have yet to think of a build I like.

Reborn: Yup, another one already! And to answer the 'what did I do' part, it was either a) throwing Fire Blasts, b) recasting my Shadow Master in another position, or c) running for dear life. :lol:
It is a good week for the SPF. So many brave warriors and great accomplishments! Come, let us have some blood wine!

Uhh, what are you all looking at me for? :)

So is the Pally up next or are you starting something else?

Congrats man!! This has been a good week here with all the pats/mats. I wish you luck on your journey for the next 3. Oh and for the druid use a werebear cuz.....cuz they are cool and I said so :lol: .
Porius: Yes, the Pally is next. He WILL be Patriarch, because I said so, no matter how bad Holy Freeze may be. :lol:
Arewyn: I can't remember right this moment, but I'm pretty sure they were either around 20 apiece, or negative. Usually how my ranged attackers turn out. :scratch:
ahcw: I'm thinking about a Wind Druid, but Werebear seems like another good choice too.
use a werebear. they r0xx0r your boxers.!

congrats on the pat:thumbsup:

if you can get over the AR problems holy freeze palies are really quite strong
Nice work. Congrats!
Congrats on the Mat! about skills? The stat junkies demand it!
