    Mercenary:
    Defiance Merc from normal for the extra strength required to use Colossus Voulge Inisght. Equipped with Guillaumes (7str, 23fire res jewel), Boneflesh (PAme) and the Insight I mentioned (2% off from perf damage, perf slvl aura, perf critical strike, not eth). I'm going to swap him back to Might when I get a few levels myself.

    Everything else:
    She was kind of fun to play, only the Hell Ancients were pain. Had to buy potions for 50k and drop them to Arreat Summit everytime I tried to beat them. I think I killed them on the 9th shot or something, Madawc got wounded and bled to death. Korlic was spammed to oblivion by Fire Balls. Talic was cheated between column and Blizz'd to death.
    A few long drawn sighs came out when I found totally perfect items with 'repairs durability in X seconds' but they weren't ethereal.
    Not many drops worth mentioning or remembering... An eth, non socketed Cryptic axe from Throne room and err... Hellforges: Shael from NM, Um from Hell.

    A couple more pictures to satisfy your visual needs:
    The last meeting with Tyrael
    Matriarch Ethereal

    From now on? A few Hell Baals to get that Ice Blast and Blizz maxed. Maybe I'll make Smoke 'EthLum' to some decent armor, craft new amulet with skills, imbue more ethereal gloves with other characters. Oh, and I want to make a HotO for her! Got an ethereal flail and the other runes waiting, just need another Gul. I hope my Gimmershred Paladin, Zen, will get one. If not him, then my PSN daggermancer Terror smashes the stone for good (rune). We'll see...

    Thanks for reading, cheers ^^

    Haha, lots of potions for Ancients. Actually, I didn't have any problems with Ancients with my untwinked Blizzball, used around 4 superheals and 12 supermanas. (And few TP to reroll their atributes.) I just used SF and Tele if merc in danger, after halving their HP spam Blizz and tele all the time then just Fball on last CI Ancient.

    Hahaha Tupsi! Nice job! After making a max vit wolf druid, I completely have respect for any base str/dex char. You usually have to make some big item sacrifises.
    From your items, I take it she was played Untwinked. This true?
    Love the +20 to Strength! I think I did this when my wolf was young, but somehow got his strength quite high, and could let it go.
    How high did you end up getting your Str/Dex? Just enough to wear the 72 strength required Skulder's or a bit more?
    Also, what were your charms like?

    Bad luck of your hellforges. :sad:

    Again, Good Job!

    Great achievement Tupsi. Nicely thought out. And at such a young age, too! :thumbsup:

    Personally, I use Nef-Lum ... :hide:

    You obviously don't know about the 'omgwtfsekret' runewords hidden so deep within the code that even RTB couldn't find them.
    Let me clarify:

    'Pwntitude' (Eth Lum), Armor
    +1000% defense
    +1000% enhanced damage
    +1000% Magic Find
    -1000% enemy defense
    -1000% Gold Find (to keep the runeword balanced)

    /nonsense

    Tupsi, congrats! Major style points for your achievement! Good to see you gave Charsi something useful to do with her malus. Double congrats for mat-ing her at 79.

    She was twinked. It was told on the introduction thread (like someone would've read it...), but I forgot to tell it on this post. Almost all the charms, gems/runes were from my stash. Skullder was from my stash also, other equipment wasn't. So, I tried to twink her as much as possible, but I failed miserably ;p

    Ah, the charms... I had them in my mind when I started to write the thread, but I forgot them on the way... Here they are:

    GC:
    -14 all res
    -5 str, 9 fire res

    LC
    -4 str, 12 cold res
    -5 str
    -8 cold res, 8 fhr

    SC
    -5 all res
    -5 fhr (3 of these)
    -1 str, 6 cold res
    -18 life
    -6 life, 6 light res

    The 73 strenght that Skullder required, came from:
    10 (the base) + 17 (ammy) + 5 (ring) + 20 (helm) + 6 (belt) + 15 (charms) = 73

    Apologizes, I was thinking about making a Stealth (no, I won't write the 'TalEth' because I would just be wrong again...) and that confused me. Thank you for correcting. :) And thank you AJK for showing some empathy :)

    I wasn't taking the mickey, Tupsi, I just didn't want to you waste your runes or a decent armour. :smiley:

    Congratulations again. Outstanding achievement. :thumbsup:

    EDIT: @Tupsi. Ah I think we both had the same idea to begin with but confused each other. :grin: Taking the mickey = being sarcastic = making fun of someone. AJK was particularly inventive with his response. Althought I did spend a few minutes looking for that runeword LOL.

    Don't know what 'taking the mickey' could mean, but it doesn't matter, I guess :] Your correction was completely friendly and had a good meaning. The sentence 'showing some empathy' was meant to just tell how nice it can be that someone says something like AJK said, but it wasn't meant to do what it did. I just can't use english like I'd like to use it. Let's just try to understand my badly shaped english like I'd like it to be understood (it can be hard sometimes...) and be buddies? :flowers:

    :smiley: I read it when you first posted, but didn't take note of whether she was twinked or not.
    I agree with Zenith - give her some fade. :grin:

    Who will you be Pat'ing next?

    Congrats.
    very nice potion layout - reminds me of D I days when I left a vast plot of potions and items just north of town, always neat to get that perfect 9 drop of potions around you...

    Because it was so hard to get them :undecided: Everytime I found a couple of 'juvs, a danger was waiting behind the corner to whack me dead and in order to save my bottom, I had to drink some of them.


    I will be Pat'ing a Paladin called Zen soon. He's now in Hell Chaos Sanctuary and got an Ist from Hellforge. The HotO I was speaking is very close now...

    You wanted faded Sorc... So, I made her fade and uploaded a picture. The exp. shrine was an accident (too hasty Telekinesis finger), otherwise the picture looks nice for me.

    Well like I said in your first thread about her worthy cause and well executed. Will you ever try a ethereal melee Char?

    If I ever find an Ohm rune for Exile, I will make one. Before that... I don't think so. Playing with block breaks shield very quickly.
    Barbarian wouldn't need a shield, but I just can't play with them. I don't have a Pat, or even Champ of their kind.
    Furysin isn't pure melee, but she would be nice to make and she could fade for real :azn:
