Andariel has now been defeated. It was annoying though not very hard. She only dropped a blue falchion and some gems.

Now, what's the optimal choice for a mercenary for a Sorceress? If if i remember correctly, they switch the auras around without any particular idea so i probably shouldn't rely on say, Prayer too much. The rogue seems powerful enough, so is the A2-merc even really needed? In the end, Barbarian is probably the way to go.

Hi,

I processed to A2 Hell with my LF zon and I'm rushing at the same time my DuriMule-Hell to his position.

Anyway I noticed in the Palace that when I throw LF to another room, the room will be full of lit bolts until my mana ends. And that's because nobody in the other room is taking damage and dying at all! When I move to that room and restart everyone is down in a few sec and my mana is full (+30MPK and Tenet leech).

Barbs are generally the best merc in 1.07, though others have niche uses.

For sorc, I prefer the barb.
May I say my opinion.. A1 Rogues are not bad. You can buy them a bow that makes +1k poison damage when socketed. Also when equipped with a Rattlegage nobody never gets close to you.

my 1 cent

Edit: Those bows can be made at very early levels. So you have not to be at lvl90 to get the merc survive =) My barb merc dies when he attacks Hell Blood Ravens army alone @55 =)

Is there a small list of the discoveries in the last years?
That would be a very small list =)
I think the most major discovery is that the rune has ilvl while in play. When you S/E it's gone. And that for crafting over 99 items.

I use an amp dmg bow with tons of ias (on armor, too) for a rogue merc on some of my characters. Poison should also be decent, but I've never really tried it. Not sure if the dps is worth it when I'd prefer a tank in HC (although "tank" is generous for a label for 1.07 mercs lol)

sets are way easier to get than uniques so why not? If there's some reason you might need a second some day you might as well get a few now :)

Same for tal's armor, btw. In fact you might want 5+ of those as they are good for merc due to res and mdr

Yes, sets came easy. Run 125

That's enough for now.

Thanks for the Tals armor tip. I'll remember that when I found a right rack. I need racks very close to WP and no monsters. I look them that way. Any monsters and it's next.. My runners are not fighters but runners =)

Maybe now a moment for shako & balrog skin racks.

Took next RackSin and started looking a rack. Almost immediately got this in LK:00_Balrog.jpg
2 ticks. I had a Balrog rack and I tried what this gives with more ticks.

First time I was like yeah but when I tried to repeat I got Leather armors. Then I shoot the 3rd trap a bit off and I was yeah again =)

I only got a couple of Tal’s Armours, I wished I had run for more.

I will be back to 1.07 now the MFO is over - My question didn’t get answered a page back, wondering does anyone have a full list of what Larzuk will punch in what for 1.07?

Not really... that list is questionable, as I know for a fact wands cannot get sockets (Larzuk won't even take them), and I'm 99% sure only Pally shields will get 4os...

GaLaXyh4x had an unfortunate habit of just fixing broken code on his install, and then extracting infos from the game files, containing info related to his fix. Especially unfortunate, since he was so helpful in general, so alot of his info is garbled...

Ok, I think I've not seen 6os body armor too?

About shopping elite bases for crafting.. Does the clvl define what I see at vendors? My zon is 72 and I've tried to shop some items that are shoppable according that WoRG's miniguide. Haven't seen any.. If if defines, how I can know what lvl I need to be? Thanks.

GaLaXyh4x's list is probably based on the code from the quest, but it ignores the entries for the actual items.
Intersecting the two, here's the list as far as I know (I didn't test every item, obviously). Items of lover item level, or of higher rarity, may have fewer sockets, as per the respective rules (magic max 4, crafted max 3, rare/set/unique max 1; check GaLaXyh4x's list for lower item levels). Fun fact: Sorceress orbs are all listed as 4 sockets, even though they occupy a maximum of three inventory squares. My first post here, I hope everything works as intended.

So I killed Meph, D, Ancients and finally Baal (4 or 5 tries=). I'm done questing in this version. Rackrunners are runners and I'd like to build a Barb to do Trav.

I read this thread but I can't recall every detail of people's Travibarbs. So I'd like to know what stuff to rack.

Currently my runners are assigned to Shako, Skulders, Arkaines, Tals armor, Vinged helm (, Tresher, Great poleaxe and BK myhtical sword which I got two already).

I still have 3 unassigned. So what stuff do I need? Weapons obviously? I'd like to do frenzy instead of WW if it's viable.

Thanks,

m4ke

@Derklord Excellent work! Easily the most comprehensive and accurate list for 1.07 I've seen, you even got the differences in maxsox on midrange exceptional armors!

@m4ke for shopping, clvl does effect what spawns in a vendor's inventory... ilvl of shop items is clvl+5, and ilvl must be greater (or maybe equal, not 100% sure) than qlvl before an item can spawn. I'm pretty sure you'll never be able to shop a Troll Belt, due to an error in the game files that sets the upgrade for elite belts to elite boots instead. Of the remaining shoppable bases, Mirrored Boots are qlvl77, Aegis are qlvl78, and Hellforge Plate is qlvl79, so all should be shoppable by clvl75, but clvl72 might be (barely) too low to see any of them yet.

I've not played with Frenzy much in 1.07, but I do know that dual-wielding doesn't work like in later patches, so Frenzy might not work like you think it will...

You might want to look for a Colossus Blade rack...some people like 1.07 Grandfather, and the BK Colossus Blade is a pretty good weapon for 1.07...eth Colossus Blades are also pretty popular runeword bases when forwarded...

@WoRG Thanks for the info! If I go WW with my barb is it then a single Colossus Blade?

I read all the stuff about others barbs and equipment but it wasn't so important that time =/

Yeah, you only need 1 good weapon for a 1.07 whirler...dual-wielding will hit twice a much, but always with the primary weapon (offhand weapon does lose durability, tho)... I like wizardspike offhand for huge resists and +mana, but anything with +Stats, +Skills, +life/mana, resists, MF/GF, etc. is good offhand, absolutely no need for +damage, elemental damage, IAS, CB/DS/OW, etc., as they won't apply to hits with the primary weapon.
