    2 Pats, 2 Mats

    In the last few weeks, NDXdreamer and I have been MPing with a few characters. After this last weekend, we are proud to announce 4 new characters which have defeated Hell difficulty, SC, 1.10, twinked.

    These four characters can be seen in their glory here:

    Victorious! (link)

    It was a hard fight, and both Pellanor and Atalanta suffered many deaths to the ancients, although Marteau and Nefertiti were left unscathed. In the end, though, righteousness prevailed in each timeline, and Baal was destroyed.

    Atalanta (NSXdreamer's amazon): Mysterious amazon, famous athlete of Greek myth, both a runner and a hunter. Built around her famous strafing abilities and the aide of her Valkyrie compatriots (AFAIK), this blonde beauty sought vengeance for the painful death of her admirer, Meleager, and found it in the world of Sanctuary.

    Marteau (NSXdreamer's hammerdin): Hailing from Merovingian France, Marteau speaks little and lets his righteous hammers do the talking. Afraid of very little (FE's mostly), destroyer of everything evil, Marteau will stop at nothing to bring his justice against those who try to corrupt the world of Sanctuary.

    Nefertiti (wildjinn's TS/DTail assassin): One of few females to be treated with Pharaoh status, she left Egypt in discrace. Upon Akhenaten's fathering of two heirs by another wife, Nefertiti left the Nile to soothe her grief. After having been approached by the war goddess Neith and trained in the ways of combat, she decided to take up the cause of justice in a faraway land, bringing to bear the magekilling powers of her ancestors.

    Pellanor (wildjinn's tesladin): His hunt for the questing beast brought Pellanor to the lands of Sanctuary. while he did not find it, he helped dispatch one of the greatest evils the world has ever known. Using Arthur's first sword, he destroyed many evil enemies in his quest. Unfortunately, his zeal also nearly took the lives of many good individuals as well, tarnishing this king's reputation. He continues questing to clear his name with great deeds of valor.

    Details of each character will follow in this thread

    edit: forgot a couple more photos of the paladin guard.

    Pellanor (level 84):

    Attributes:
    (w/gear)
    226 Str
    183 Dex
    250 Vit
    20 Ene

    Zeal
    Damage: 419-6520
    AR: 3180

    Holy Shock Damage:
    1-991

    Life:
    1043

    Resistances:
    Fire: 95
    Cold: 95
    Lightning: 95
    Poison: 95

    Gear @ Patriarch:
    Andariel's Visage
    Mara's Kaleidoscope (23%)
    Crescent Moon Phase Blade
    Guardian Angel
    Herald of Zakarum (Pdiamond)
    Dracul's Grasp
    Ravenfrost
    Thundergod's Vigor
    Dwarf Star
    Gore Riders

    Important Skills:
    (w/gear)
    Zeal (12)
    Holy Shock (25)
    Resist Lightning (25)
    Resist Fire (15-10 base)
    Resist Cold (15-10 base)
    Salvation (25)

    Inventory is filled with resist charms and the Horadric Cube.

    Pellanor is a pretty standard Tesladin, except for the fact that he has 95% resist all, which was my plan at the conception of this character about a month ago. He turns on Holy Shock and Zeals like mad at everything. He has a defiance merc, equipped with Reaper's Toll, Delirium Demonhead, and upgraded Shaftstop. Levelling gear included a Guillaume's Face, which, with the Gore Riders, provided amazing crushing blow, which, combined with the Lightning damage, made this an amazingly quick killing and fun character to play. :)

    His gear also included a 4-socket (4-PDiamond) Superior Targe that was found in the Pit in Hell by another character. It has a required level of 18 and 118% Resist All. :D As a note, String of Ears and Dwarf Star is a great combination, IMO, because of the great straight magic damage reduction. When you've got that and 95% resist all, it's pretty nice. :)

    Resistances:

    Cold: 28
    Lightning: 56
    Poison: 4

    Gear @ Matriarch:
    Vampire Gaze
    Mara's Kaleidoscope (29%)

    Immortal King's Forge

    +25 Life, +21 Mana large charm
    Horadric Cube

    Important Skills:
    (w/items)--Andariel's Visage will soon raise each skill by 2.
    Tiger Strike: 30
    Cobra Strike: 11
    Phoenix Strike: 30
    Claws of Thunder: 27 (soon to be 30)
    Dragon Tail: 30

    Claw Mastery: 10
    Burst of Speed: 10
    Claw Block: 12
    Cloak of Shadows: 10
    Mind Blast: 10
    Shadow Master: 10 (any points after CoT will go here)

    Nefertiti was the result of my decision to finally "walk the walk" and make a super-optimized TS/DTailer after having written my guide. I'm disappointed that I couldn't do it with less Vitality and more Strength, but each additional point that she gets will go into Strength to boost kick damage. She was glass cannoney until about 190 Vit. She will also be wearing Andariel's Visage (I think) upon achieving level 83.

    What can I say? She has been very fun to play except for a few instances of the crazy FE bug which is surmountable with persistence. The most annyoying enemy was a PI/LI unique Mauler-type in the Durance in Hell. I didn't notice him in time to release charges on nearby monsters to kill him with the fire splash damage, so my merc went to town with his RT, breaking his PI and we very slowly killed him.

    Things I learned playing with her: Cloak of Shadows is amazing. Period. I used to use it on occasion when I would run into a particularly difficult pack, but I use it all the time with her now, especially solo. It made any part of Act 5 hell with archers a breeze, relative to its usual difficulty. Also, claw block is amazing. Some people don't like it due to its tendency to block everything, but, IMO, that means they're not using CoS enough. They shouldn't have to be blocking much at all. Having it block Baal's Hoarfrost when you're running up to him is amazing.

    Assassins are totally egyptian. :)

    Conviction: 1 when I level up again. :lol:

    My first hammerdin, and I am suprised by how powerful it is. The unique balrog group near diablo/baal didn't even get the chance to hit me before died to my hammer field on player 4 (though wildjinn's assassin did tank for a bit). Ancients also died fast to hammer on player 4.

    My biggest problem is fleshhunter archer packs (and FE, but that's same for everyone), they always run when you reach them, freakin fast too. Charge is pretty good against them, and lightsabre solved the AR problem (ITD, otherwise around 50% to hit).

    Congratulations on the new Patriarchs and Matriarchs. Great work on both of them. If either of you feel like celebrating, then you can have a :drink: at the EMB on me.
