Patriarch Reaver, Fury Druid with eTomby
This guy is the first in my Runeword Bonanza Sept, devised as a way to actually use some of the nice shiny objects that come with completing the Runeword Grail and tick off some builds I still wanted to try out or rebuild with better gear.

Reaver was destined to use this hurty stick:
3os eth Tomb Reaver.jpg
The 3os eTomby was found by my untwinked 99er sorc, Hiatus, the Zod by my untwinked 99er pally, Phaedrus, and the RJoFs were picked up during my 7x7+2.

Reaver blitzed through Normal and Nightmare, twinked to the gills and with maxed Feral Rage on right click. He pretty much ran straight ahead with the extra speed from Feral Rage and destroyed anything in his path. Things were slowing a little right before he got the up’ed, Shael’ed Ribby, but not thereafter.

In Hell, he leveled from ~72 to 84 in the Pit as a Fury/Rabies build with Grief. That was another build I wanted to try, so he ticked off two of those. At high p-setting, it wasn’t that great, and I mostly used Rabies to use it not because it made a noticeable difference.

Once he could equip the eTomby, he respec’ed to pure Fury build. He quickly respec’ed again to drop the Spirit of the Barbs that couldn’t stay alive at p7. He finished Hell at p7, full-clearing all A85 areas. Resists were maxed or near-maxed for everything but cold, he hit the 86 FHR breakpoint, and he had >2600 life when shifted. Grizzly was >4200 life, so quite the meat shield :)

He pretty much destroyed everything up until Act 5, basically a reprise of this leveling with Feral Rage: hold down right click, occasionally left click to charge Feral, and hardly see the life bulb drop while he shredded everything. Decrep from merc’s Reaper’s was a major help, meaning that he rarely had to use Azurewrath switch (I used it mainly on ghosts for the knockback, and for the few unbreakable PIs).

Act 5 was a different story, and became more of a challenge, in a good way. I couldn’t always wade in recklessly, depending on monster immunities/resists and boss mods. The little skeletons that Tomb Reaver spawns after 10% of kills (called “returned”) were quite helpful as a form of crowd control to occupy monsters. At one point, I had four of those around Reaver during a battle, which was handy with witches’ red balls of death flying.

Reaver had one death after respec to eTomby Fury build, during the Anya rescue, to a nasty double spawn of gloam and witch boss packs with might and fanaticism. Hell forges were Lem and Um, and he found a Cham while leveling in the Pit :cool: Aside from that, no drops of note. Hell Forges were Lem (NM) and Um (Hell).

He was just shy of 89 after taking down Baal, so he ran Pindle two dozen times to ping.

Thanks for reading. The Assassin is the next character up in the Sept!

Edit (4/26/20): Added a video with a random bit of running in A5 Hell. It's been a couple months since I played him, so I was a bit rusty with hotkeys and approach. But it gives you a sense of the character's power!
