It sure has been a while :oops:


Gwynt, the wind druid, has completed the first step of his journey! Hence the phrase, 'Dye-parth gooeyth ew eye thechrye', a Welsh proverb meaning 'Starting the work is two-thirds of it'.

I enjoy wind druids and this was no exception, especially as he is my entry in the Revenge of the 99ers. Credit to @kestegs for that as I have really only rebooted his tournament.

I got quite lazy with his fcr to be honest...

I have stuttering issues when I record these days (no idea why...), so no videos.




Gwynt began his journey as a 'Leaf' touting fire druid, who's journey began with an intro to the tournament. Having RIP'd my last druid, an Oliver's Army character, I was quite keen for Gwynt to be around long term, which is mandatory reaching level 99... Normal and nightmare were a breeze and in all honesty I can't remember them too well - even the first half of hell was a few months ago. The more recent play time;

Gwynt killed Mephisto and was very happy to see this drop as his reward...

And then...


Some other nice finds :D

38mf Ring.jpg

Gwynt had one NDE that I can remember, just the other day in Durance - there is a prize (there isn't) for whoever can guess what nearly killed him. The next stage is to head to LK and get Enigma/CtA and HotO. Then to Mephisto for arach, shako, reaper's, sandstorms etc... Then time for some Baal runs! :D

Congrats! I used an eth Arachnid mesh one season for quite a while (on a hammerdin iirc). Unlike helms, belts seem to last a while.

Was it an extra fast, light enchanted, cold enchanted vampire that nearly killed him?

I will probably use it at some point :p It was not!

I guess that I got lazy with items? xD I also had awful luck - my rares were atrocious.

Congrats, and good luck with the rest of the journey !!!

Smoke, Lore, Lionheart ... all great and rather cheap replacements to use until you got that endgame stuff like Enigma, Fortutide / Treachery, ...

Standard untwinked items really, cheap but effective. I like to not always finish with the same gear though :p Sometimes when I play a twinked character, I use pretty sub-optimal gear just so that I can have a play with dust gathering items.

Nice work @Kitteh, are you going to use SS for endgame? I noticed you socketed it with a pdiamond and im curious.
I am indeed! The diamond is temporary because I happened to need resists at the time :D It will be either Eld or Um, depending how my resist charms look later :p

A little late, but congrats nonetheless. Look forward to seeing his further progress in the untwinked 99er thread!
