another of those annoying 'first pat' threads no-one reads!

yes, as the title may suggest, i got my first pat today.
name: patriach Thilblen
oppucation: skelemancer
age: lvl 84
characterstics: social, never seen without his 26 closest undead friends, including his companion razan.

i got lucky in the throne of destruction, no OK's and so goign was fairly quick, i got down to lister and his possy and it took some whiel before i seperated lister from the rest, where i took him down on his own. the other minions fell easily. oh, and i learnt another lesson. burning souls hurt. even with 75 res i had to use full rejevs 4 or 5 times in lvl 3 and throne of destuction.
baal himself took ages, but with decrep (slow 50%), clay golem (slow 49%) and 2 cold mages he ddint hurt. also i confirmed somethgin i noticed in nm baal. when under decrep, he never teleported or cast his other baal. as soon as i switched to amp dmg instead he teleported. is this a hidden feature of decrep, or was it the cold effect generally?
i took some screenies during the battle (the advantage of a skelemancer is the free time to pose for pics).
i had over 300% MF, first hell baal quest. not the best of drops though.

final stats:
str: 85
dex: 75
vit: alot
eng: base

skills:
max: SM, skeles
15+: CE
10+: mages, clay golem
others: amp dmg, decrep, SR, golem mastery, revives, prereqs

anyway, the irony is i got no uniques from WSK 3 onwards. shocking really. so ithen goout to test my cattle farming skills. just on the way to colecting wirts leg i pick up 2 excep uniques and a norm unique. thats goign from stony field WP, findign tristram, killing grizy as he got in my way, TP back to town. 3 uniques. :lol:

Congrats! The first one always feels nice...that's coming from a guy who has only one mat. :p Regardless, good luck with the MFing that I assume is going to occupy your 'mancer for the rest of his days. :)

Congratulations Bob on a job well done!

Would you mind posting your end gear set up? I would be interested in knowing what it was.

What I've noticed is baal don't teleport or cast his other baal when he is slowed, decpf slows, amp not.
the fastest way to kill him using my ww druid is use a normal unique weapon with 50% slows target(don't remeber wich) and hit him only one time, then switch to my real weapon (tomb reaver) and kill him.

ah, congrats :)

Wow, looks like I'm about the 15th or 16th person to not read your post but send their congratz anyway. :p

Someday, I hope to have a similar post, which will probably also produce several responses from those who don't read it.

Have a drink on my tab tonight. :drink:
