First SP Patriarch!

Just a mere five minutes ago I accomplished my first SP Patriarch (still have yet to get a SP Matriarch). This is my first SP char to complete the game, also this is the first char I have leveled and quested all the way myself. Use to play MP and get rushed and Baal ran to leveled, so this is new to me to me as well. Also it is a druid by the name PMPDruid (WoW druids name) this is my first druid above level 30. So I accomplished a bunch of new things this run.

Level 81:

20 Cyclone Armor, Tornado, Hurricane, Twister
11 Oak Sage
1 Arctic Blast

Gear:

Nothing to really mention, best items I have are a Crystal Sword and Monarch Spirit, a Skin of the Vipermagi, a rare Antlers (+2 elemental), rare amulet (+2 elemental), everything else is just picked up off the ground blues.

Also, no merc was used. I tried but I couldn't gear him up efficiently to keep him alive. Sorry no pictures completely forgot to take any on my adventures, and was too excited after killing baal that I wanted to see Patriarch PMPDruid and left the game immediately >.<

Congrats , I somewhat remember the days when the though of me finishing Hell difficulty was something I only dreamt about. Nowadays I consider normal and nm nothing more than a lengthy way of character gen and almost always skip it by rushing.

Congrats!! The game is a lot more challenging and fun when you're not rushed :p. Here's to 5-6 pats and mats coming along, right?

Congrats on the accomplishment! You're first self-leveled, single-play, untwinked character is quite a feat. Bonus points for NOT making your first character one of the really common builds!

Congratulations!

Truth be told, successfully completing Hell without being rushed is an accomplishment, especially untwinked. After recently going from 1-77 on a sorc myself, I've been reminded just how "painful" the task is. She's been getting ripped apart by gloams in act 3 and I don't currently have the patience to walk after two difficulties.

I still haven't forgotten those days.

Re: First SP Patriarch!

Are you using RWM? If so, here's some ideas for your merc:
Weapon: insight polearm (ral tir tal sol, you should have these runes)
2nd option: obediance: needs a KO rune however
Armor: Stealth: Shael, thul, lem (Hell countess might give you a lem)
2nd option: smoke (nef+lumà gives 50 res all
other options: guardian angel, griswold's heart, duriel's shell, shaftstop...
helm: anything with lifesteal, tal rasha's helm can drop quite easily.
other options: rockstopper (no lifesteal here though), vamp gaze, ..

Yes I am using RWM, and did you mean Duress? Which is Shael Um Thul. I planned on making an armor for my merc but I didn't get a good one to drop until act3 hell and by then I already outleveled my merc (yes I know I can buy a new one) and I adjusted to playing without him. I will however start gearing him up shortly though.

Congrats on your first SP patriarch, it's definately a good feeling knowing you did it all yourself, bigger sense of accomplishment then you get on b.net.

+gold star for playing a windy, they are my least favorite character to play (got mine to lvl 70 and gave up) tornado's accuracy drives me insane >.>

Re: First SP Patriarch!

Huge achievement. Look forward to hearing more about your next character. So what are you plans for the future. More chars? Farming? MF runs?

No, i meant treachery :)
It gives +2assasin skills, which is useless, but it has a chance to cast fade, which gives him wicked resists and some damage reduction, and it also has a CTC venom, which ups his damage by quite a bit. The other mods aren't bad either IIRC.

Re: First SP Patriarch!

Yeah I was happy when Baal went down for multiple reasons. This is my first windy druid and the accuracy on Tornado is enough to drive a man insane :p.

Future plans, Well I need to MF because I have terrible gear :(, so if anyone can give me tips on that greatly appreciated. But after I get gear I have a few chars in mind that I want to level. But I do plan to make my first druid past level 30 and my first Pat, my first ever level 99. Just need to gear him up then it's off to the races so wish me luck with that :D.

Ahh Treachery, I just assumed Duress because it was the closest thing to the runes you listed (that I could find). Ya even with the +2 to assassin that still wouldn't be that bad of an armor. I really need to start gearing my merc and character up, so I'll have to look into it.

Re: First SP Patriarch!

For increasing your stashes make a sorc , get her to nm and then hell mephi. Play through the game with whatever build you like but it's a good idea to start running him as a full blizzard sorc.
