Took some time to think about the build and gearing, with what is available and what is not.

Career started today...Well lvl 6, only cleared the Den for now, not even took the time to get the Cold plains' waypoint :p

Two skillpoints in Warmth, the remaining ones in Fire bolt, and stat points in Strength to get 30. Using Arctic armor and belt for now, will twink a bit more later.

Beside, crafted her a pair of Spirit broad swords, trying to get the highest fcr...will be capped at 33 out of 5 tries - not bad, and enough to target the 63 fcr breakpoint at lvl 29 with Magefist and a fcr ring. 105 breakpoint will be much harder to get with a block build - i.e. no Spirit shield.

Speaking of it, not decided between upped Visceratuant (got a non-upped) and Whistan's - probably the latter with a pdiamond socketed.

Anyway, I have time for those questions! See you on next update!

Good point. I also would probably choose the blocking and resists of gemmed Whitstans over the +1 skill on Visceratuant.

Hit Jail 1 wp, then lvl 15 in Jail 2, had to stop there.

Well not much to say, twinked with knell striker, a low Nagel but 70AR, a 10fcr ring rare with some AR and poison resistance iirc, Hsarus boots for early FRW, and the always much efficient Bloodfists.

At this level cap I will twink a bit more, getting Cathan's helm and a ring (20 mana, 10 strength), some strength charms to get to 50 (currently 30), and replace boots and amulet by Vidala's (30frw, 50mf, 150 stamina!). At lvl 17 Stealth armor, 19 Leaf.

For later, Whistan's shield is now ready thanks to one of AlreadyDead's quest :)

Classical early path. See you on next update!

Update on the build and gearing section.

As it stands, will be limited to 63FCR, using Spirit 33 and Vipermagi. It frees the gloves' slot so Bloodfists can be kept and bring their 30FHR. So here's a new status.

New status after some trade and socketing idea on all res jewel in Vipermagi - so that clvl req is kept at 29. One last available socket: the Shako's one. Maybe another res jewel/an Um?
