oh dear, I somehow thought you had rolled Grizzly as a normal skill. Checking again, I was badly mistaken and your skills after all are really bad. 😱

Fast progress still, though! Keep it up!

Yeah, well, I guess you really have to rely on your merc a lot while you enjoy the scenery... On the bright side: your weapon roll allows you to carry a Shael Shael Shael Shael Shael Shael Phase Blade for ultimate attack speed in Wereform! 😬🙈
I bet i would have locked Grizzly instead of Lycanthropy ;-)

Weapon wise, I'd go for a 5 Shael one (GL on SP) with a Rhyme Troll nest...but I will need a skill to make some damage, Werebear will not be here forever xD

Edit: checking options, I noticed that activated skills from other class is not allowed, therefore Passion is not an option - and so was CtA for Frida oO

Edit 2: at clvl 17, i could gamble a Giant sword, that turnt Deadly...maybe i should continue, but i'm torn between getting a better Giant sword and saving gold for a poleaxe later.

Hurricane => Lycanthropy => Rabies

Axe => Broad Axe

BTW I am unsure how this should work. As Lycanthropy is a "normal skill" should the permanent skill take precedence and Lycanthropy become a permanent skill? Then Rabies become the Normal skill?
To answer your question, yes, in future iterations it will be changed to be that way. A reroll will take a normal skill make it forever and then a reroll to get a new normal skill. It is just a tad to bit into the tournament to modify that character creation rule this year.

Rabies will need rerolled as well as it is also a normal skill:
Forever Skills
Hurricane
Shock Wave
Summon Grizzly

Normal Skills
Maul
Lycanthropy
Werewolf
Poison Creeper
Maul => Maul => Rabies Game really wants you to use Maul lol

I also decided on rerolling my Light Belt in my Armor slot.

Congrats in the roll @Jcakes and @Vang, I bet that will be pretty straightforward thanks to the 1 point shapeshift rule..!

And that amount of reroll is just amazing...there shall be an hall of records for that too!

Dire Wolves and Grizzly...Oh my, Thanks @Jcakes

I'm thinking of locking Rabies as it'll give me good physical and poison damage. Let me ponder the day away working on this, any input from fellow players?

If anything I'd lock Lycan. You're going to be spending most of your time in Werebear form to use Shockwave so using rabies will be a bit annoying, plus with no guaranteed synergy it's not going to be that effective anyway

As far as PI's go, your best bet is to find a weapon with ctc amp damage or a barb merc with Lawbringer for the CTC decrepify.

If SP, it could be interesting to lock Rabies to ensure a second kind of damage (third kind would be via HF merc?), and in case of synergy in Hell, jackpot!

If not SP, there are other things to do, like yes a Lawbringer weap - even on switch for yourself I hadn't checked your weapon types! Being a life meatshield could be interesting then, and Lycanthropy can do that. Oh, and on a side note, Stone has Clay golem charges! So it could seal the fights vs last bosses.

But the question is, widely, what would you hope to lock instead of Rabies? HoW? Oak sage? Armageddon? Raven? Fire claws?

Rabies, as a spreading disease, would pair nicely with stun&summons I guess, even if the non synergized damage would be that huge, at least it would be!

He can't use Lawbringer himself due to weapon types. The problem with Rabies is you need to shift into Werewolf to use it, I think it will be a bit clunky given most of the time you'll want to be in werebear form for Shockwave. Trust me when i say that Shockwave is an incredible skill - 10 seconds of stun is amazing crowd control.

Personally I'd lock lycanthropy for the extra duration werebear and the bonus life and use ctc amp or lawbringer as your PI solution.

Groot has killed Baal and will now take on the cows before heading off to Nightmare. Can someone role me the NM skills? I want to lock Grizzly from the normal skill set.

I am really hoping for something great here, Groot is just standing around watching the bear kill stuff.

Roll the dice, please (y)

Hmm... it seems very similar to my normal ones... I had both Twister and dire wolf there as well. Is that allowed or does it require a re-roll? Not complaining, since the wolves will make my bear even stronger and in that case I might lock that skill already now...

Well you can lock only one skill forever, that had been the Grizzly - which was the best decision.

Yes this time random had been pretty similar...at least you'll be trained for the gameplay, and by the end of nightmare see how those pets work maxed xD

Heading to the catacombs

Since last time didn't push a lot (got back into SC LK for a Sur for my bowazon project), only cleant Tamoe and the Pits. Nothing noticeable, but a gambled Great sword at clvl 17, only a magical one:


Next time will be pushing into the Jail, maybe even getting to the Inner cloister.

Edit: For now cleaning is easy until i face a curse group, especially archer, who makes me use all my life and rejuv pots from belt... hope i'll still have some for Andariel, getting minor healing pots will not be enough at all for a biggie bear health pool -_-

The archers were the very next boss pack... hopefully i went back to town before facing them!

Ended at lvl 19, using now HoW instead of Oak sage:


Edit2: progressed until catacombs waypoint, and hit lvl 20 while clearing this area. Will therefore fight Andariel at this lvl, with a 1pt HoW, 12 in Werebear, and 5 in Lycanthropy (lvl 6 thanks to the wolf head).

See you on next update!

On to Act 2 #GotPoints!

Well since last post, i only completed the catacombs and faced Andariel... who was easier to handle than i thought, even on p8.


Upgrade oriented on FHR...


Still not lvl 21, but most important thing is that with the chipped diamonds dropped, i am getting closer to use the Savage recipe :) Will find the cube soon!

It will be of interest to shop for a Breast plate too, only have an Ith so it wouldn't be for a runeword, but some more MF would be welcome

Edit: The savage cube quest
Since last time, got the Dry hills waypoint, still haven't cleant the first tomb in the first area - I may at some point - and got the cube!

Could therefore cube two polearms. Well... first is a Partizan with 73ed, lvlreq 23 but stats are too high to equip it, and the other one should be usable by merc at lvl 25, stats reqs are much lower, but it's not a poleaxe...sic.

See you on next update/edit!
