Reuben made it to Guardianship, woop! He was a very fun character and his Oath was a big bad slicey thingy. Not my quickest... I take my time with all characters and really don't play for speed, but even for me, this was a longer Guardian. The best moment was probably finding a Lo rune and making Fortitude. I actually almost missed it! Reuben was supposed to be my Travincal runner for the RFL, but he isn't quite up to it because of the moron, but maybe next time. He will sit for a while I think, but I would like to use him for something eventually! There were some really grouchy/irritable parts in Hell due to me being stressed about my thesis stuff, I really was grumpy :D

Originally he was using wolves instead of grizzly and an act III merc, but seriously, it was painful. I had to swap because the mercenary was pretty much useless except for his Lawbringer... Druids are a bit of a thing for me just now it seems.

P.S. If anybody gets the reference of the name 'Reuben', awesome stuff! :D

P.P.S. Reuben's title technically includes another word between 'The' and 'Furious' but I couldn't include it due to forum rules, but figure it out.

Trying HC twice and miserably failing, big congrats on the guardian!
Which builds? Try with a nice basic character and take your time, get your confidence up, but not too high :p Hardcore is mostly about learning not to play the game like it's softcore.

Nice job Kitteh. So what was your strategy vs PIs? Those PI Ghosts can be a pita.

Tried a berserker barb and an enchantress. Maybe will try another build in one of the future tournaments.

Thank you stranger, where have you been? :p
Life got busy, and my appallingly bad luck with LK runs turned me off the game for a few months. But I'm creeping back. :cool:

So Reuben was an untwinked Fury Druid? Holy smokes, that is impressive! From my experience, they're kind of squishy in terms of damage taken - even with a Leviathan on, as mine is (lvl 85, parked at the Ancients for the moment). Also, how did you manage with keeping that Oak Sage alive thru Hell?

Oh no, he was twinked :D Sorry, did I say untwinked somewhere? The sage was recast regularly, mostly preemptively though!
