    Dont let your greed get the better of you.

    I started playing HC about 3 weeks ago, made a meteorb sorc from scratch, Got some starting gear with gems and proceeded to lvl/mf to lvl 85, not bad considering my highest SC character is only **.... Anyway last night I was doing some meph runs in hell. Found a lightsabre from bremm sparkfist, I thought cool first one on hc. Did a few more runs found a SOJ!!! from meph. I thought, you know my luck is pretty good tonight why not a few more. So, do a few more runs kill the council and a set ammy drops, I think crap a cathans or something, id it and its a tals ammy. Know, in about a span of 4 runs i have literally improved my wealth by 100 times. Is that enough...apparently not for me. I mule the soj just in case (thank god) and do some more runs with my new tal ammy. To make an already too long story short, I lagged while teleporting to durance 3 and apparently I tele'd right into the middle of some might aura maulers. Needless to say I didnt last long. So, instead of thanking the d2 gods for the great drops, i got greedy and wanted more, it ended up in the death of my character, now im pondering wheather to keep at it and start a new character or just give it up. Anyway, just remember, dont be so greedy or it will get you killed.....

    NEVER give up HC!! Use that SoJ and start a Chainlightning Sorceress. The funnest class around! You should get the standard crap of Wiz, Storm, Harle fairly easy. Then you can go Hell Arcane Sanctuary leveling her to ** or so. No Lightning immunes ( Except Towers ) and barely any risk at all ( Narrow ways, no surround possibility for monsters ), weak monsters, good exp and you'll find some neat stuff along the way... The best part? At level 85 I got 51 mio ( MILLION!!! ) exp from one solo run in an 8p game!!

    NEVER giveup HC!!

    Thanks for the encouragement. I probably wont give up, I think ill just give it a rest for a week or so and start again. I've been thinking of making a lightning sorc since i have a +3 lightskills with life ammy, but was always worried about how i would kill immunes since i dont have real good merc equipment. And i like the versatility of a meteorb sorc since i play solo mostly and can kill most monsters. You seem to have a good grasp of the trade values, what all can i get from the soj, I know they are worth quite a bit and just need a general estimate as to what all they will bring. I have a few other tradeable also so i shouldnt have too hard of a time reoutfitting a character i just want to get the most out of what i have.

    I've given away all I have but I did find I haven't emptied my merc, so if you play on Europe I could give you the Ethereal unique elite Bardiche ( Bone or so, forgot the name :p ) with 2 AMN, 870 or so damage, a Vampire Gaze, Skullder's Ire, M'avinas Diadem, Wizard spike and some more...

    Umm... USE the SoJ ^^ It's a SUPERRING for any Sorceress! =) I quit many months ago ( After the runedupe ) so I don't know trading values anymore...

    And a Meteorb can kill everywhere yes, but she's very slow at it... When my Sorceress was fully equipped I would do Pit runs in 2-3 minutes including my merc killing the Light Immunes...

    Well, unfortunately i play on east, but i appreciate the offer. My thought on trading the soj was to get some good gear to keep me alive this time, my gear before wasnt bad, i had max res and about 7 or 8 to all skills, it just seems that on east hc laddar items are still pretty high, and most people just want high runes that i dont have, and they covet all of their extra uniques too much to trade them for anything but runes. Anyway I think ill play my summon necro and see what he can do and probably start a new sorc in a few days. Thanks again for the offer.
