Not surprisingly it was my meph-runner that first made it to guardian.
Most of the time it was a breeze, but come Hell act 4 some areas just got slow as killing Izual on p8 Normal untwinked.
First big hurdle was Chaos Sanctuary. Until I found the reaper's toll I had no way to deal with the OKs which Is why I was such a high level when I finally went ahead and made her guardian (Note: she was lvl 78 when she first killed Mephisto)

Since I was such a high level and had 800+ life with nigh full resists and a decent fcr most of the open areas of act V was teleported through. Nothing was fast enough to hit me so even the times I landed in the middle of a pack nothing happened.
Then came frozen river. Suddenly the roles of Cool_gal and her merc switched. Usually the merc was holyfreeze on a stick but now Cool_gal was teleport on a stick. Lots of positioning, teleporting and TP'ing to remove IM later and I had a resist scroll as well as a red portal.
Lots of teleporting later and I was among the ancients. 2 non-CI and one harmless CI on the first roll. He did have stoneskin though, so it took a while but there was no real danger.

WSK... lvl 1 was a bit slow since everything was cold immune, but no undead flayers or gloams until I cleared some parking space for Baals minions so I was never in any danger here either.
Enter the minions. Blizzard. No more minions. Enter Lister and Company. Blizzard. Only Lister stands as he is Cold immune. Reapers toll does it's thing and Im following Baal through the portal. Teleport on top of Baals area, drop a lot of blizzards in big B's face and Give the merc a few pots as needed and viola! Instant Guardian! (Now why has it taken so long to get here?)

Oh, almost forgot. Check these out:

Grats on your Guardian.

As for your maps, those are the same exact ones that I had on my sorc before I uninstalled the game and only kept the character files.

Any NDEs?

Re: (First) Guardian Cool_Gal Blizzsorc

Now that you mention it I did have a Near death occy encounter as I was clearing out the areas around Baal's throne that I forgot about. Got hit by a purple ball and got teleported into a pack of gloams. Contemplated S&E for a while but then I pressed escape and drank a purple and teleported outta there. Feels a lot better to get out of a situation without the old save and exit.

EDIT: NM hellforge - Io, Hell hellforge - fal

Congrats on your first guardian, Doc! How many Meph runs do you think you did to get from 78 to eighty-whatever? Those are great Meph and Baal maps. Now if you swung good LK and AT maps you'd be golden. Again, well done!

GG Docturnal the 1st Guardian is always the best. A Blizzy is quite an achievement too. And you got some great HC gear as well. Well done!

Re: (First) Guardian Cool_Gal Blizzsorc

thanx all. Feels great to finally get around to playing well enough to get there. There were some spots where I wouldve had problems if Id play like I usually do.

@oldsoldier: If I remember correctly the AT map is pretty close to the WP, but the actual map is a bit spread out, so If Im gonna go AT or LK Ill have to reroll the maps or go for another char.
Since I rolled pretty high on the spirit I only need an arachnid for 200fcr gear, perhaps Ill make a fire sorc when I feel like starting to do some LK-runs. This character should be enough for my everyday MF needs for quite some time though.

EDIT: Oh about the meph runs. Somewhere between 600 and 800 id say. Maybe more, but still no arachnid mesh =(

Big Congrats! Also, I'm jealous of those maps, it really doesn't get much better than that. Any plans for your next guardian?

'Grats on the first Guardian! How was the Claw Viper temple and HF merc (+what weapon?) I'm curious, as I've always gone with blind teleporting over fighting those guys.

Re: (First) Guardian Cool_Gal Blizzsorc

Oh any place where my blizzard wouldnt cut it before act 4 Hell was a teleporting fest. Since only the fastest base monsters and evil boss packs even have a chance of hitting you it is mostly safe. And since it is a mf-sorc I have no real quarrels about using the S&E route should I manage to get myself in a too tight a situation. (Cant remember what weapon I had around there... mightve been spire of honor)

Congratulations! The first Guardian is always the best. :thumbup:

You got some really nice gear aswell, especially considering it's your first Guardian! I have 4 and i don't have half of the stuff you got!

Interesting to see a Spirit Monarch aswell, that's rare in HC.

So what will be the next character you try to Guardian?

Re: (First) Guardian Cool_Gal Blizzsorc

my next guardian is either a part of a long term project ive been itching to move along or a fire sorc. We'll see if I get hooked on LOTRO first (just started the trial)
