Geive, SniperBarb -- Progress Thread Hello. I've been playing diablo 2 on and off for who knows how long... It's been too long... so long... Anyways. I've recently came back to d2, playing sp for the first time. Some of you may have seen me trade some mf gears for my sorc. Now that my sorc is almost fully equipped, I was planning to start off some crazy build characters. =D I've been staring at Vox Dei's CtC Cold Enchantless sorc forever, but I still lack the equips to start her off. Also, I'm quite fanatic about idiotic builds so I've been trying to make one. I traded off some equips to originally start off with a pit-running strafer, but decided it was too plain. Now, after days and nights creating and deleting characters, I've finally decided to start off Geive, a sniper barb. As stupid as I am, I've decided to put ALL stats into DEX, Max Increased stamina, Faster Run/Walk, and Natural Resists. This means no offensive skill, no crowd control and etc etc. =P stupid. i know. The playing style would probably involve my merc tanking it all, and me going *pew pew* from the back. Faster run/walk with StormShield on switch should let me dodge/block some incoming missiles... I think... :whistling: Anyways, I've just cleared the normal act 1 Den of Evil, and still pondering about the gear set up and such, but seeing how I've idiotically gave up on survival, I've decided to focus purely on DMG and IAS. Any ideas or suggestions or comments or etc will be greatly appreciated. Also, I will update this 'chart' of my future gears, so more people can laugh at my idiotic-ness. Stats - pure dex Skills - too embarrassing to mention again Gears Head - ? Ammy - ? Ring1 - RavenFrost Ring2 - ? Bow - WWS or Windforce Switch - Stormshield // ?? *since I have plenty of dex, i should be lucky enough to block many shots =D* ** Is there a weapon that increases your defence, dmg reduction, faster hit recovery or faster blocking rate or etc etc? ** Gloves - ? Belt - ? Boots - ? As you can see I've just thought about the idea of barb using a bow, never much thoughts into gears and such. Again, I would love suggestions for any possible gear set up. =P Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to seeing how this dude will hold up in Hell - if i even get that far. xD -- ToGgi.
