Plan was to go for max speed. This meant using Threachery once again. Fade proc for resists was (once again) too much work so switched gear before entering Hell to partial Tal's. That worked ok. The small FCR boost helped casting Decoy & Valkyrie too. But after matting she went back to Treachery as her intended future of Cow mass slaughtering for runes doesn't really need the resists (nor MF) that bad.

Tried Poison Javelin as main skill in early levels but didn't like it. Spent a lot of time thinking about secondary attack for lightning immunes. Inspired by Saracens Holybolt paladin which left every non undead for the merc I finally chose the summoner route for LI's. Might merc with eth reaper's and a level 17 Valkyrie and Decoy did the job well enough (a bit too well actually, more on this later).

Did Hell Act 1 on p8 but rest on p1 except for
-Arcane Sanctuary on p7(to try how it felt)
-The guy before Lister on p8
-Baal on p3 (regret it as it was a tedious potdrink fest in wait for the inevitable)
As a rule when Zeldas xp bar passed 25%, she stayed at p8 pits till next level.

Act 5 was tough for the merc as usual with all the projectiles flying around. Although I tried my best to cast Slow Missiles and place Decoys resurrections were plenty.
Ancients had one lightning immune and others where manaburners, but it was still easy thanks to Decrep and Valkyrie.

Finds: can't remember :/
Funny stuff:
-Guess what happens when you throw the last Javelin while depending on the +20 str to wear armour? I had a few WTF moment's while questing and it wasn't until Act5 I realized the cause of temporal nakedness :)
-Jab at 95IAS looks hilarious (too bad it only tickled the enemies)
Sad stuff: Zelda was meant to run cows, but there was the hint mentioned earlier about merc being too efficient LI killer. On p3 cow run number 8 or so I went on my regular business with a good sized heard. Saw a flash of a LI Boss, not enough to see the name. Kept on throwing the deathsticks and proceeded to pick up pots to see if something worthwhile is on the ground after the quick onslaught. Then I notice I'm picking up a stamina pot, and another, aand another. Oh hell... In a bit of denial I searched the whole level but Cow Elvis had left the building.
Future plans: dunno, still a bit bummed out.

Congrats on the Mat, but agreed about bummer of losing Cow King. I have found LFzon fun (and really fast leveling) at Baal, and also a nice change of pass for CS runs, in case those options are of interest.

Congrats!

Style points on the 3piece Tals on a non-Sorc!
Seconded.

I use my Elvis-deprived LFzon to run RoF/CS+farm terror essences. She works pretty well there, though she is Valk-less, but I wouldn't think D/A/E would be overly problematic since it's somewhat lacking ranged mobs.
