Oh man do I wait for next session... running Meph is so painful when entrance to lvl 3 cannot be found quickly (i.e. 90% of the time).

Getting to Eldritch will already be nice, unlocking Pindle would be so great... I can't bear this tentacle demon running (or say at least alone, when running with 2/3 people searching time is much more efficient!)

I updated previous post, but I think I'm done this time - Some great finds overall to be honest, so it was very well worth running, even if the best finds came for the Council.

Progress:
We made good progress and cleared all of NM Act V. Boots got caught in a bugged CE FE explosion and died (Frigid Highlands) but other than that it was smooth sailing.

Freeing Nightmare Anya:

Snakes spawned but not too many so we carried on rather than aborting.


Nightmare Ancients:

Had to reset them once because they spawned with Amp and Conviction, but second time there were fine, only Amp.

NM Mephisto Runs - Sunspot finally found some useful items from his Meph runs:
Duriel's Shell -> Boots
Goldwrap -> Upped and given to Boots

See you all next week!

The road to 3.10 - Hell MF is a hard task!

Countess shall be ran until next week-end, with some NM Travincal to get back gold as the merc is dying so very much. Also any pack is killed & horked to get the precious purples and chances to find an IK piece. Thanks to @ioupain, horking is made with two Alibaba's :)

Current clvl: 74.6.

The bright ones
Rich (BB code):
Tal's weap 1/2/2

Hopes/Wishlist
  • Another Alibaba on switch
  • Rare gloves with resistances and ML/LL/MF
  • Rare rings with AR and ML/LL

  • 4os Balrog blade for charges
  • 4os eth Balrog blade for straight damage

The build
Build will now be targeting max WW, at clvl 77 with Hell act 1 and act 2 quests. Afterwards maxing Find Item could be a thing, maybe putting one or two more points in Natural Resistances to help a bit too.

Progress:
Last week we took a break.

We resumed from Dry Hills and made our way to the Kurast Bazaar. Canyon had multiple overlapping dangerous packs with fana and amp. The Spider Cavern was also extremely dangerous with multiple fana/amp bosses that were fire immune!

I don't recall any major finds other than Sazabi's Mental Sheath

Yes, no other noticeable drop. And well, multiple situations where 4k life had been just enough for me to retreat - a pop from full to under 200 was a really close call (amp + double archer packs in the palace room right before AS).

On my side, build is somehow complete damage wise, it will be all on gear now, so will be hoping for some elite base for merc's Insight. Putting points in Find Item is not worth it for MP, due to Sunspot's pets, but still can be a thing in the week sessions - but for now, RFL is the thing.

See you next week-end!

Progress:
Started off from Kurast Bazaar and went to Travincal. Cleared them out without too much bother. Then Durance had dolls and some nasty packs.

We went onto kill Meph who dropped very poorly.

Hell Mephisto:
1615682830129.png

Act IV had a lot of fire immunes so Sunspot wasn't able to do much, other than Volcano, Holy Freeze merc and some Grizzly support to help out Boots. We encountered numerous dangerous packs with Fire Immune bosses seemingly in every single pack we encountered.

Hephasto was basically immune to the entire party! Sunspot valiantly tried to use a 1 point Arctic Blast to help but as you can imagine, it was worse than pitiful, my Bear's bad breath did higher damage.

Hell Hell Forges:

Chaos was quite tough, again Sunspot was as useful as a chocolate teapot in the depths of hell.

Hey :)

To complete the summary:

The Pul forge
Screenshot114.jpg

And a shopped +3 warcries which was available when i went to repair before stopping:
Screenshot115.jpg

It had been a pretty tough session with one death for me - nasty pack + whirlwind => no purple can save you from that.

Hoping for a weapon upgrade... IK Maul would be nice and isn't that rare. Hopefully, in Act 5 mobs life won't be as high as in Act 4, so it should balance things back a bit!
See you all next week!

Progress:
Short update today.

Started off from Harrogath, killed Shenk, Eldritch, saved Anya and made our way to the Ancients Way WP. Along the way we faced quite a lot of fire immunes and dangerous packs. At one point Boots was reduced to 48 HP.

@Babyhell found a 13/13 Verdungo's!

See you all next week!
