Heh, friend of mine used to play zoomed out in D1, unless succubi were in evidence :innocent:strijdje said:so i can play some diablo on my own PC in a week or 2, cause i currently play at a buddy and he is totally freakin out every time i play my amazone... "zoom IN zoom IN come on'!!!" so lame ^^
have a good day all,
I've got a couple decent mid-level rare claws I wouldn't mind parting with. I'll try to get the specs on them if you're interested. They're not uber items, but they were good enough for me to keep....Kung Poo said:It's odd... for once, I don't want it to be Friday. My deadline's getting too close now, and the pressure is on. Lucky for me there's only 3 pages on the stupid thing to finish. Last night I double checked my margins for the bleed/cut/live areas, and to my chagrine, I hadn't taken that into account. I spent the next 2 hours or so fixing the first 10 pages so that all my frames and speech bubbles were appropriately aligned. Ah well, it's all a learning experience, I suppose.
Oh yes, and about D2, I took Sasha to clvl 24 and all the way to the palace quest. Tonight I'll storm into the Arcane Sanctuary and shove my foot up the Summoner's.. umm.... sleeping bag.
Only lately have I noticed that I have an extreme lack of Class-only items. For example, I don't have one single unique or set claw. Period. I have a few rares, and a few Cruels from the 1.09 days, but that's about it. Later on I may try a runeword or two, but who knows.
No complaints with Sasha, though. Even without an uber claw, she's destroying just about everything on players 8 in one TS/DT combo. My merc, on the other hand, is a sissy, especially when it comes to getting zapped by lightning. As soon as he hurries up and levels, I'll slap a Sparking Mail on his arse. Maybe that'll calm him down.
Ok, time to work some more. Wish me luck, folks. This should be the last weekend I have to spend on the comic. After that, it's just waiting for the news to arrive on whether or not I've won.
unfortunatly I think you will be disappointed - I was. Anyway, I got inferno - the firebear into Act 3 normal (had my wife rush me a bit thorough that), and Meph is next on my hitlist (already have d2 wp)addicted2macs said:I'm using a Homonculus now, but I figured I'd give the trophy a shot to see how it does.
What's your Woestave trick? Did you find a way to survive Baal's Mana/Life burn with some mana intact? Please tell me you did. Pretty please?Fafner said:MC_Hammer got into Hell last night, my little Woestave trick working nicely on Baal still. Interesting drop in NM, I got Guardian Angel from an urn in ancients way. I hit hell and it was first time I actually pumped the players up since it was too easy (freakin' hammerdins). I made it to the pit for a sample run at 74% MF (p-topaz shako) and of course didn't get squat but I made the run in about 5-6 min. I guess in MF gear it will take a lot longer.
Thesis today *grumble*. I saw a great thread in Strategy about SoJ's, but since they don't run the economy here I don't know how many people will care.
I've only found two so far.
Hmm, I think I have a couple hanging around. I just may try that. Do you just use it for boss runs or does your merc use it all the time. If so, think I should upgrade it for slightly more damage?Fafner said:Get Woestave for your act II merc. Equip him with your other two fav's (CB doesn't hurt here for Baal or Meph, but Meph still kills him fast so you may need DR there with hammerdin I tank Meph myself). I use an upgraded etheral Woestave but the damage isn't the key...check out its stats

It's a poor man's decrepify, it also works really well on Baal's Minions, Lister and crew as well, my Merc tanks them (I do need to teleport/retreat a bit to get them all frozen and slowed or he'll get slaughtered but once they're slowed and frozen forgeddabout it).
Basically you tp (with amulet, I'm not rich) next to Baal and let your Merc hit him, if he moves chase him. Once the Merc hits him, he's toast. You may need to feed one potion if he hits the merc before he gets hit otherwise he will be slowed and frozen. Sit back and hammer away. Good-bye baal, only mana use is from hammers.
I love this set-up, Woestave, Guillaume's face and Shaftstop, if you Amn'd the Woestave then this would be perfect. I guess it's still not as good as Reapers, Vamp, Shaft but when I get all those items I'll be able to see.
Try it, you might like.
