    First Matriarch! Meteorb sorc

    So after becoming frustrated with my first attempt at a single-player matriarch/patriarch (70 fishymancer stuck in Hell maggot lair) I decided to make a meteorb sorceress due to the fact that I had found an Occulus with my necro.

    Name: Yttriac
    Class: Sorceress (meteorb)
    LVL: 81

    Stats:
    Str: 165
    Dex: 143 (33% chance to block)
    Vit: 233
    Energy: 70
    Defense: 1068

    Resists:
    Cold: 66
    Fire: 59
    Lightning: 75
    Poison: 75

    Skills:
    Fire prereqs: 4
    Warmth: 1 (9)
    Fireball: 20 (28)
    Meteor: 20 (28)
    Fire Mastery: 10 (18)

    Cold prereqs: 5
    Frozen Orb: 20 (28)
    Cold Mastery: 8 (16)

    Lightning prereqs: 1
    Teleport: 1 (9)
    Static Field 1 (9)

    Gear:
    Weapon: Occulus
    Shield: Spirit Monarch Shield
    Head: Sazabi's Mental Sheath
    Chest: Skins of the Vipermagi (+34 resistances)
    Hands: Frostburn
    Feet: Silkweave
    Waist: IK belt
    Ring 1: Rare ring (8%LL, 7 LR, 25 FR)
    Ring 2: Rare ring (16 str, 23 PR, 30 CR)
    Amulet: Rare amulet (1 to sorc skills, 24 str, 26 life)

    Charms: Random assortment of resist, life, and MF charms.

    Merc: Act 2 NM Holy Freeze merc
    Head: Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest
    Chest: Haemosu's Adamant
    Weapon: Eth Honor Partizan (131-300 dmg with only lvl 27 requirement, merc tore nightmare a new hole)

    Notes:

    Normal- /p1 up to act 4. /p8 act 4 + 5. Most annoying of all the difficulties. I should have just picked up some early skills and then re-spec'd later, but I decided to just melee through (Sigon set was a nice help). Duriel was a huge pain in the ***, but the rest was bearable. When I attained meteor around act 4, it was on!

    Nightmare- /p8 all the way thru. Devastated nightmare. Combo of my new-found frozen orb spell and my mercs new eth honor partizan made this difficulty a complete joke.

    Hell- /p1 all the way thru. Pretty easy besides running into certain sets of archers and cold+fire resistant named monsters. Gloam-like teleporting, lightning shooting monsters beat me up in act 3 before my resists had shaped up. Bosses were all cake.

    All of my gear besides my occulus was MF'd as I progressed on this character. Was able to procure a Wealth armor and some other decent MF gear around level 50 or 60, whereupon I began running mephisto for some upgrades. In hell I ran the countess, andariel, and mephisto a few times as I progressed.

    Notable drops along the way:
    Mal (not from forge, my forge runes sucked)
    Eth Titans!!!! :)
    reg Titans
    T-gods
    IK boots, gloves, belt
    Vipermagi
    Couple of +skill grand charms (i forget which)

    Time to get my fishymancer thru hell! Then onto my next char, a javazon perhaps? :)

    Congrats on the Mat!:thumbup: Some nice finds there.

    I've finished my first a few weeks ago (also meteorb). Good luck with your future plans!
