Double Mat Thread Prepare for a long thread. Over the past six months I've made two sorcs for very specific purposes, one for running the countess and one for running pindle and meph. Obviously the pindle runner had to reach act 5 but the coutess runner only needed to reach act 1 and for a long time she stayed there until I decided I could reach hellforge quick enough to be more profitable (potentially) than countess running. Once I was there, and my other sorc sitting about halfway through act 5 I decided to mat them both and, just for fun, do it in the same game. So here they are.

I started playing at p8 and then dropped to p1 and decided I would runn bosses to get levels before moving to the next dificulty, then I decided to scrap that too. At lvl 63 she reached the countesses castle and immediately setup camp. She found a good map and has been teleporting to the countesses chamber all the way up to lvl ** (around 2000 runs). About the only odd thing about this is extra points in energy and teleport. I'm quite happy about both of these, there is nothing like being able to regen mana while teleporting, very helpful against the ancients.

I leveled her a bit better, mostly because she just destroyed everything (pre-hell, i.e. pre CIs) at any player settings. She carries about 560 MF right now. She got a Lem from her Hellforge Drop. Matting them together turned out to be a bit of a hastle but is still cool.
