    Announcing Snow_Bunny, my first 1.10 Mat (untwinked)!

    I am pleased to announce that I have completed my first untwinked 1.10 Matriarch! :D

    A L86 Blizzard/Ice-Blast/Firewall Sorceress named Snow_Bunny (full stats below).

    Matriarch At Last!

    She defeated Baal at L85.7 or so and then went to the River of Flame and did a couple runs at P8 to bang the gong. Got a Kelpie off Baal.


    Now she can start treasure hunting in earnest! hehehe.

    For the most part, this build progressed very nicely. Snow_Bunny found some extremely opportune items along the way (I sometimes wonder if the AI in the game takes pity on you and decides to drop exactly what you need, lol). Anyway, she was fun to play in Normal and NM, which were both mildly challenging in places. Most of the ride through Hell was a real thrill though, with a few very odd exceptions.

    Deaths in normal mode: zero
    Deaths in NM mode: 1 (I carelessly flung her into a pack of extra-fast vile archers in the Countess Tower and she was "hit-recovery locked" ...out go the lights...).
    Deaths in Hell mode: about 30, half of them at the hands of the Ancients (Korlic often spawns FI on top of his CI).

    Areas that were surprisingly easy (in Hell mode):
    River of Flame, Chaos Sanctuary including Big D, the Worldstone Keep but most unusually the Throne of Destruction minions and Baal (no kidding), the Ancient Tunnels, the Maggot Lair, the Mausoluem and the Crypt.

    Comment on Baal's minions... the only cold immunes were the archer-skellies that spawned with Achmel. Firewall and my Merc took care of them rather quickly. The rest (even Lister and his hound-mates) all were ripped to shreds by icy shards... MUHAHAHAhahaHA. I had to tp out of the fight with Baal a couple of times to replenish some red and blue pots, but neither Snow_Bunny or her Merc died at his hands. Blizzard chewed him up too. *giggle*

    Areas that were agonizingly difficult (in Hell mode):
    By far and away, the Ancients were the absolute most unbalanced, ridiculously hard fight I ever fought in D2. By far.
    Durance level 2, Battlemaid Sarina's Lair (about 5 deaths in there), Palace Cellars (with all those damn Burning Archers), Arcane Sanctuary, and various spots in Act1 and Act5, especially "The Pit" and the Glacial Trail.

    Most notable finds: Suicide Branch wand in Stony Tombs NM mode, Gul rune from Hell mode Hell forge quest, Frostwind Cryptic Sword from Hell mode River of Flame, Ormus robe from Mausoleum Hell mode, Ma'vina's armor from Hell mode Crypt, Dark Adherent Dusk Shroud from Magi Canyon hell mode, as well as a plethora of socketed elite grey items - to name a few.

    As far as where to put remaining skills and stats points as she moves toward Clvl 99... I will probably max out Ice-Bolt and put the remaining point in Spike. Also, I'll probably boost Str some more to remove some item dependency, then add to Dex to try getting block back up to 60%, then the rest to Vit.

    Skill point placement regrets: I could have got by without spending a point in Static Field. TK + "Merc Tanking" is so much better an alternative to deal with CI+FI's as the following screenshots will attest...

    TK in action#1
    TK in action#2

    Ahhh, that would be nice wouldn't it? :drool:

    At least when equipped in Battle Gear she looks "naked" (dusk shroud + circlet).


    Thanks for the kind words folks! :D


    Next project is an Enchantress ... but I'm gonna have to twink her with treasures found by Snow_Bunny. Hmmm... I still need to get a 4-socket phase blade... Maybe some more River of Flame runs? I've found 2 or 3 blue ones there.

    Congrats, untwinked is quite an accomplishment. I couldn't resist giving my Vegasorc the occulus I found. I love firewall from the old 1.09 days. I used to own Hell Meph players4.
