That's the spirit! Fall off the bike and get back on it immediately, still, very sorry about your deeds!

I'll be back with your Amazon in a few minutes!

Jcake's Amazon:

Forever Skills:
Dodge
Evade -> Freezing Arrow (initial reroll)
Immolation Arrow
Cold Arrow (locked from normal)

Normal Skills:
Guided Arrow
Impale
Lightning Fury
Explosion Arrow

Weapons:
Long Bow -> Hunter's Bow
Long War Bow
Pilum
Maiden Javelin

Armor:
Light Armor
Crown -> Circlet
Leather Gloves
Heavy Boots
Heavy Belt
Kite Shield

Well, that looks like a really bad roll skill wise... I really would habe wished for Valkyrie instead of Evade, but alas! RNG has chosen!

Any rerolls?
Let's make it a cold maiden locking in cold arrow. Kind of wish I hadn't re-rolled the Long Bow, but that's ok.

I do love LF, but can't pass up on a synergised freezing arrow.

Getting tired of LK... back to questing again
After 675 runs - and i must say pretty nice finds, i haven't even checked all charms yet, but the runes were valuable, i decided to head to Diablo.

The CtA? Not crafted.

The Fortitude? Neither.

Town portals? Don't know, maybe a dozen used to sell stuff/revive merc/remove curse.

The result? Hopefully it was p1...no life leech on merc + resistances not maxed for him is hard in CS.

Diablo? Kept close, used Charged Strike, and he surely died.

Here's the vid of the seals and Didi *fight*

Act 5 here she comes!

Edit: Act 5 started
Only pushed to Shkenk and Eldritch's waypoint, leveled up to 84 there, and made Abadon's red portal. Nothing really noteworthy for such a small session, so i integrate it in this post for now ;)

Second somehow short session made me save Anya. On the way, a 509def Kraken Shell that could have been used if ethereal and ebugging gave... well, it will not be used ^^. After that, it was a slow pace until Anya, popping Decoy very often due to the presence of the bone spear snakes - everywhere. Last waypoint got: Crystalline passage.

The final act for Silika in Normal went as easily as the previous have. She's chugging along very well, but there were still some interesting things to report from this act.

She did fuller clears for the duration of Act V to take advantage of the XP-bonanza. Shenk died quickly, the barbs saved, and all the way to Anya with ease where she hit an important milestone at level 39. She can FINALLY take advantage of the helm type she rolled (Great Helm), so she bugged Larzuk until he coughed up what she wanted:



She will obviously be plugging another flawless topaz in there once she finds one, and while she was in the shopping mood she grabbed some Gauntlets of Fortune from Anya before popping down to kill Nihlathak. She then found an Amn in the Glacial Trail which she will save for later use, and Lightning Sentry is now maxed out.
Not really much to say about the rest of the act. Ancients, WSK, even Lister were no problem. Before she knew it, it was time for the final fight of Normal.



He fried the merc a few times, but there was never any danger to Silika. His drop even provided a small upgrade! All in all a super easy trek through normal, which is not surprising with her skill layout.



Her randomly rolled stats are sitting in a good spot, there was a surge in Vitality this act (great!) and Energy remains the lowest stat (also great!).

Silika, the Trapsin - lvl 46, NM Rogue Encampment

Act 5 - When a story ends...
Saving Anya (who cares about the barbs?)...
After a first session during which Frida pushed to Shkenk and Eldritch's waypoint, leveling up to 84 there, and a second somehow short session during which Anya had been saved, it was time to head to the Ancients and the Throne.

Submitting the Ancients...
On the way, didn't find much but this one is kinda nice Enigma base:


At the Arreat Summit, XP had been checked, they won't be enough to get clvl 85. Well let's take them down anyway!

First part had been to separate them - they all get the Stone skin mod -_- Hopefully each one his own immunity, so i could be useful for two of them!

Each one his task, buddy

Madawc was the real pain... Leharas wasn't handling him at all, so it was the time for a bit of strategy!

Hopefully he was stupid enough to try to shoot at me anytime... so i went with the Decoy shield!

10 minutes after, Madawc was still alive, and i had wasted all my arrows. But he ended cold shattered, it was time to submit Talic, easy task to complete the biggies:


Well in fact he was Fire enchanted and that was no joke (300 hp down), hopefully i hadn't been too confident with this.

Knock knock knocking on Hell's end's door
Afterwards, WSK was not that easy, but found paths really quickly, and no doom mods uniques, so it went well. The Throne was really easy using Decoy and LF, only had to resurrect Leharas twice, and vs Baal well... i didn't even needed to resurrect him, the story ended with him face down, 1M XP close to lvl 85 (that i will get before updating my Murios' entry @D2DC ;-) edit: done after two p1 Pindle runs).


Baal only noticeable drop, this rare ring:

Not fantastic, but if i had to share something about them...

Everything had been done on p1, i think you got it already!

See you on... next character?

Congratulations, @Babyhell Impressive and also very fun to read about :)

I have taken Groot through normal act 3, nothing spectacular. I am lvl 32 now and have tried my new friend Papa Bear. Not sure if I like him better or my 3 dire wolves. Really a shame that you have to choose... I need to pick one to lock for NM and I haven't decided yet. I mean, the grizzly is strong and lives forever but there is also the strength in numbers...

I will be looking for a Heavy crossbow now and start to take part in the fight as well. My morning star from act 1 is pitiful to say the least... And hopefully I will make it past Diablo this time...

@queenEm I'd definitely lock grizzly over dire wolves.

WIthout synergies Direwolves aren't fantastic beyond normal, whereas grizzly can at least be a tank for you.

Oo dont know what to say... well...let's reroll 2-H Sword and Poison creeper for sure. I'll check for armor piece later, I do hesitate between buckler, belt, and bone helm.
