    Class-Specific Set Goal Countdown: 1 out of 7

    I've done it! :clap: Well, at least partly...

    I killed Hell Baal, albeit /players 1, an hour or so ago with my MeteOrb Sorc equipped with Tal Rasha's Wrappings.

    Stats so far...

    Character name : (Matriarch) Pnembra
    Character type : Sorceress
    Character level : 86
    Character exp : 1218905365

    Strength : 90
    Energy : 50
    Dexterity : 200
    Vitality : 175
    Stat Points Rem : 5
    Skill Points Rem: 3

    Resists: Hell, 75% all, with Sandstorm Trek on

    Skills:
    20 Frozen Orb
    10 Cold Mastery
    1 in each cold pre-requisites (total of 5)
    20 Fire Ball
    20 Meteor
    6 Fire Mastery
    6 Fire Bolt
    1 in each fire pre-requisites (total of 3)
    1 Warmth
    1 in Static Field, Telekinesis, and Teleport

    Pnembra's Gears:
    Helm--Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest, socketed with Ral
    Armor--Tal Rasha's Guardianship, socketed with Thul
    Weapon--Tal Rasha's Lidless Eye, open socket
    Shield--Rhyme Grim Shield
    Belt--Tal Rasha's Fine-Spun Cloth
    Gloves--Magefist
    Boots--Sandstorm Trek, but when I killed Baal, wore perfect mf War Travs
    Amulet--Tal Rasha's Adjudication
    Ring1--The Stone of Jordan
    Ring2--The Stone of Jordan

    Merc's (Holy Freeze, level 86) Gears:
    Helm--perfect Vampire's Gaze
    Armor--upped Shaftstop
    Weapon--upped Kelpie Snare

    Maintained /players 8 all throughout Normal and Nightmare. Act 1 Hell, still /players 8, iirc. Act 2 and 3, varied from /players 4 to 1. Act 4 and 5, /players 1 all the way questing. I was in a hurry to finish her and focus on Pally. But did some Pit and Pindle runs at /players 3. No notable drops for the entire game, except probably for the Mav's Armor that dropped in one of my Pit runs. Baal even had the guts to drop me just one set/unique item, a Trang-Oul's Armor!!! :rolleyes: Well, I guess he knows what my game plan is that's why he dropped me part of a class-specific set... :p

    Thanks to sasja's Meteorb Guide (3rd ed)! :thumbsup:
    And thanks to everyone who helped me decide on my future builds to, hopefully, complete my project.

    Next in line is my Avenger Pally, still level 26 in Act 3 Normal... long way to go.

    Gratz on the Mat! I'm hoping to complete all 7 classes using the class-specific sets as well at some stage... Do you already have all the pieces of the others sets?

    Thanks! :)
    I think many have the same idea... frosty, for one, is also doing this. But I think he is half-way through.
    Yup, already have all the set items needed, though I'm still thinking/finding what to socket in the 12-os of Gris. 3-Pdiamonds will be standard for the shield, but others I can't decide completely.

    How 'bout you, do you have all the sets? I acquired mine generally from trading. It would be a thougher and longer job if you want all the sets self-found, aside from completing all seven classes.

    Good luck! :thumbsup:


    Thanks, corax! :)
    BTW, did you find that uber ethereal v1.07 item, forgot which, you were looking for to make the BoTD runeword? I guess anyone would go through all that trouble if they have a Zod. Good luck! :thumbsup:

    Congrats on the Mat.

    From my experiences, IK and Trang Oul will be fun. I haven't tried the other sets yet.

    Thats cool that you've already got all the sets :)

    I don't have any complete class-specific sets, largely due to the fact that I've only been playing SP a little over 4 weeks now, and I haven't traded at all yet... But I'm mfing like hell!

    Good luck on the other chars :)

    Thanks, Rugruth! :)
    For IK will do a WW/Concentrate Barb, I think that was the consensus.
    And for Trang's will do the Fishy, they say you can play Fishy without tweaking, so I guess it won't be that hard. ;)



    Good luck to you, too!
    You'll find all those sooner or later. :thumbsup:
    All you have to do is be patient and kill those best mf critters. :p

    trang-oul - psn mancer or summonmancer
    ik - WW, conc or zerk
    griswold - avenger or zeal.
    mavina - frost maiden
    natalya - dual claw MA
    Tal Rasha - most sorc builds
    Aldur's - nothing to great here. can go caster of melee. Fireclaws/rabies wouldnt be too bad.

    Congratz on the Pat maxgerin, I hope you'll succeed in patting/matting all other classes as well. Good luck :thumbsup:

    Congratulations!

    But, aren´t there 8 class-specific sets, rather than 7?

    Grats Max :thumbsup: . Go go Griswold Avenger!!! I think that character will be great fun, if that's what you decided to go with.

    Thanks, Horobi!


    Thanks, Shadow Raven!
    You mean the Ancients? I think if you use NM Act 2 Merc, the one with Holy Freeze, and use Kelpie Snare on him, he can easily take one of them by himself. But I'm not sure if I was just lucky with my Sorc. And play the Ancients /players 1.

    Good luck!


    Thanks, jiansonz!
    That's true, but I'm going for IK Barb, at least for a start. If I still have the drive after, I will go the BK path... I was even thinking of combining both BK and The Disciple Set (don't think this is a popular set), but still assessing the viability of that.


    Thanks, poopie_pants!
    Yup, that's the build that my Pally is taking, as per suggestions in my thread asking for which is the best build for the class-specific set. IIRC, you also suggested that build in the said thread.

    EDIT: Cannot put smilies anymore, I "have included too many images" :rolleyes:

    From knowledge gathered from others, and a little bit of D2 sense:

    Aldur's - Fireclaws Bear
    Griswold - Avenger
    IK - Whirlwinder
    M'Avina's - Frostarcher
    Natalya's - Martial Artist
    Tal Rasha - Just about anyone!
    Trang Oul's - Poisonmancer

    Not gospel, but seemedly the best bets.

    I was hoping to build a character with each class-specific set myself, but those TC81+'s aren't dropping!

    I live by The Disciple. Very handy set, especially for melee characters. Leaves room for maneuver on the weapon (and shield, where appropriate).

    30-30

    I only have 2 Pdiamonds in my sheild, with 1 IAS jewel. The wep still needs socketing but will be 4 40ed jewels (with second mods I hope :p ) The armor has 3 plain IAS jewels. And I've yet to decide on the helm. He's already been patted but is still loads of fun to play, what ever you decide to do be sure to get enough IAS for the max attack speed, and a LOT of mana leach.

    As for me I'm only 1 pat away from finishing all 8. If your even considering the BK set, your two options are frenzy and WW. So pick the IK set accordingly, I went for frenzy on bk and WW on IK.

    I am not a barb expert in any way, but a Berserker build just HAVE to work well with the IK set.

    A Concentrate build would also work, with either of the sets...

    I was under the impression that Gris' Weapon, as it is, already has enough IAS to reach a good speed. Do I still need to add IAS jewels? What are the breakpoints for the weapon? And what's the difference of putting an ED jewel on the weapon as compared to the armors? I know there's a bug or something... what happens?

    And you did an Avenger with the set, right? What other items did you use for the open slots? Thanks for any advice. :)
