So I have my first non self found only SP character in the works (a Zerk Pit Barb) and since my Blizzard Sorc produced a Cham for his Shako I've been really considering rolling a few Grief PBs considering my only SP Grief (from my Druid) was a terrible roll.

I had 2x Lo leftover from my Druid and another on the Sorc so I figured my chances were pretty good to beat my original:



What a miserable lot of Griefs..

@Yng Wow that's some really bad luck, sorry. Kinda reminds me of the five CtAs I had to make on my 99er Sorc before I got anything higher than +3 BO. :) But as they say - every Grief is a good Grief nonetheless!

Merry Christmas to Kitteh, from Santa? :p

It will probably go towards a Famine at some point, I've always wanted to make an avenger with it. In fact, I have a nice Famine BA on my softcore, but never got around to it...

@Kitteh Beautiful! Is that a Windy?

Did about 30 Nightmare Mephisto runs on my 1.09 orb/nova sork. Found the unique crystal sword, a peasant crown, 31%mf chance guards and an occulus. I immediately implimented the occulus into my weapon slot. Going to keep hitting Nightmare Mephisto for a couple hundred runs as the entrance to Durance 3 is literally one teleport down. The only problem is I only have a 1x2 space in my cube available and a 2x8 space in my inventory. I'm going to have to be very selective about what I have now and what I'm going to keep over the next few hundred runs to maximize my space.

Nope, hunter druid. Initially he was an arctic shaman, but I didn't enjoy that very much and quickly swapped to a hunter druid. That is my casting and general standing around set, on switch I have Lacerator for the amplify damage :) I also swap between grizzly/wolves and oak/wolverine depending on the situation. Typically in Hell I am using oak though, I'd rather not deeds :p

I decided (again) to roll the perfect Andy map, and not stop until I got it. Found something which was decent, and went along with it. Two runs in. Jackpot.

I have spent weeks running Andy (I am 100% certain that the drop calc. is wrong regarding this one) for this god damn amulet, and I didn't know whether to be pissed or jump on the bed when it dropped (I settled for yelling in the pillow, so that I didn't disturb the neighbors) My Barb is completed. The rolls can always be better, charms and all that, but the final piece of the puzzle dropped about 10 mins ago.

Did it make a difference? Oh YES! Miss the dual leech from Cresent Moon, though. Now to craft that godly blood ring :rolleyes:

I think you'd miss the +skill for Ice (worth 9% cold damage), assuming you would use the cold skills. The 6% enhanced damage seems to be more than +1 skill for strafe (+5% per skill level). But it is possible to find a +3 skills with 15% ED base . . . :rolleyes:

So unless I was really itching to make a Faith wielding strafer, I'd have a hard time spending the Jah. But that's just me! :)

@Zeniqma, that coronet is very nice, especially for a Hammerdin. The 20% FCR takes pressure off other slots to make the 125 FCR BP. With HotO, 35 FCR Spirit and the Coronet you make 95 FCR, needing only an additional 30% from belt, gloves, rings and ammy slot. The resists always help out a Enigma wearing char and the +dex helps maintain the 75% Block. However the coronet gets some serious competition from Shako (+2 skills, +life, +mana, MF, etc). Its definitely a keeper imho.

I would keep it, but I'm not sure that I would ever actually use it. Shako is too good and the fcr is achievable elsewhere, as I did with my own hammerdin. I guess if somebody is insistent on using HoZ, then maybe it would be more likely? With Wizzy, you could still reach 125fcr with HoZ, but I don't it being even nearly worth it.

Useful? Is Delerium used on other than Mercs? I sorta kinda thought about making a Druid Baal runner, and hoped to put this helm to use.

I made a deli in 3 nado/3 grizzly pelt on my untwinked windy. Dropped a point into werewolf in order to shift out of bone fetish. Not as good as a +5 nado rare pelt with the right mods, but much easier to obtain and get that damage. There's some good safety to be had with ctc mb and ctc terror when struck, but it could interfere with reaper's if you have it on merc if you're too close to him and get hit.
Ists are easy enough to come by if you're hunting some runes. Plus if you haven't put into vines on your windy, that +1 solar creeper at the very least doesn't harm you. It comes down to what you want.

In other news, my barb found some new playthings, and for those of you following the untwinked 99er thread, you'll know I'm excited about a weapon I have in wait for when I can upgrade it... well... I gambled this

Code:
Blood Prod
Pilum
Throw Damage: 27 - 89
One Hand Damage: 15 - 46
Quantity: 50
Required Level: 51
Required Dexterity: 45
Fingerprint: 0x9b72c349
Item Level: 87
Version: Expansion 1.10+
294% Enhanced Damage
+11 to Maximum Damage
+53 to Attack Rating
8% Mana stolen per hit
+13 to Strength
Almost matches the damage of the other when fully upgraded, provides more ml and some strength to boot!

but shortly before that, I found this:

Code:
Bone Wood
Spiculum
Throw Damage: 137 - 258
One Hand Damage: 55 - 163
Quantity: 17
Required Level: 48
Required Strength: 98
Required Dexterity: 73
Fingerprint: 0xfdabb60f
Item Level: 85
Version: Expansion 1.10+
330% Enhanced Damage
+159 to Attack Rating
Adds 8 - 16 Fire Damage
Adds 21 Poison Damage Over 4 Secs (100 Frames)
Now that's going to provide some massive damage (roughly 25% more than the other two), however it comes at the expense of ml. But for now, my dual leech ring will suffice, although I'd rather swap it out for a heavy life leech craft I have in the stash. Anyways, that's a development for the future. For now, I admire my shiny, pointy sticks
