Guardian Hammerskunk

Five down, two to go… :jig: Hammerskunk, my not-so-cleverly named Hammerdin, beat Baal and became a Guardian this afternoon.

I know now why they’re called cheesadins… even without fancy gear (see below), this character was able to beat hell with no real set-backs. Most of hell (up until acts 4-5) was done on players 3 or higher. Most of act 5 was done on p1.

Now I just need to get a barbarian and druid guardian. I have a singing barb in act 1 hell, but I think he’s going to hit the wall very soon. We’ll see how my two druids manage… they’re still in NM.

Well done skunk! 5 guardians, all different classes is quite an achievement (even if he smells of cheese...)
Nice shield btw.
As for the singer, if you keep on leaping to ranged atatckers first and kill that way, he is a very safe, if slow, build in hell.

Congratulations! :clap: :clap:

Getting a singer through Hell will probably take some patience, but at least it's pretty safe going... good luck with it!

Congratulations on the Guardian! :thumbsup:

And I second FB. Great shield! Good luck with the last two.

Congrats on the Guardian :). As cheesy as hammerdins may be, making a Guardian out of one is still quite the achievement. Best of luck on the others.

Every legit guardian is a great achievement. five guardians, is something I may never be able to do in this game.

Good luck on your barb and dr00d. :clap:
