Guardian #2: Lulu, Orb/ES Sorceress

Lulu was born a few days ago for one purpose, and that purpose only: to MF. I chose to go the Orb/Energy Shield route with her just for maximum safety. She wouldn't go for a ridiculous amount of mana, but rather would simply use the ES as a buffer to protect her life.

She beat her way through Act 1 and 2 Normal, as well as some of Act 3, using her Civerb's Cudgel and her Mercenary's help. As stylish as her melee days were, once she got to 25 and equipped a Spirit Sword, she left the brute force behind and went straight caster. After she hit level 30, everything was unbelievably smooth and uneventful. With Orb at her disposal, she could kill anything in sight and was quick enough to teleport away before anything could cause her any problems.

I twinked her a little bit of gear (most noticeably an SoJ), but the SoJ is the only remaining piece of her gear that is not self found. She went straight Vitality all the way through Act 4 Hell, where I paused to do some MFing with her. However, after MFing and finding a Wizardspike and some other gear, I decided to make a Sanctuary Troll Nest (for some reason I have really wanted to make one for a while) and respec her into a blocking Sorc. The shield has worked great so far, but getting enough Dexterity leaves her with somewhere around 1290 life with BO, which is lower than I'd like, so she may have more changes in her future.

She's done hundreds of Meph and LK runs so far, and had good success although the one item I've been searching for the whole time has still evaded me. (Where are you, IK Belt!) Her best find was a Ber rune from the chest behind Mephisto! :jig: I couldn't believe it.

Anyways, after MFing a while I decided it was time to rush her through to Guardian just because... well, I guess I just felt like it. I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I just teleported through act 4 and 5, but she does make for an impressive teleporter. Baal dropped absolute garbage, but it's okay: she will have brighter days in terms of finding items in the near future hopefully.

Grats.

What are you going to do with the Ber? Don't tell us that you're going to save it!

Re: Guardian #2: Lulu, Orb/ES Sorceress

It went into a Dusk Shroud to make her a Chains of Honor. It's gotten great mileage so far :)
Nice!

I have a Fortitude, so I think if I found a Ber, it'd go into a Beast (probably BA).

CoH is a very nice RW, but there are a few other armors that are fairly close. Once you have Fort, Viper, and Treachery, it's hard to justify spending a Ber on a marginal benefit. At least from my min/max point of view.

Congratulations on your guardian.

How was ES with no energy investment? Did it not feel like being manaburned constantly?

Well, it wasn't really bad because I used an Insight and Orb doesn't use much mana. My mana would only take serious drops when I was hit pretty hard, which wasn't very often since I played very evasively, being a sorceress and all. Obviously I wouldn't recommend using ES if you can't use an insight on your merc, but if you have one it's just like regenerating your life. (I used a Prayer Merc too, so it actually did regen my life :p )
