    This merc was strong enough to kill any CI monsters in the game, thats why i used mighty one...



    Gameplay events, finds, thoughts:

    Normal/NM - she was melee fighter until lvl 18, then for rest of the game Blizzard/Ice Blast/Glacial spike/Static Field...I do nor remember any problems here, so this part was easy...
    As for Hell - too many very dangerous situations (mostly because of reckless teleporting while running Areas/Bosses), but one REAL NDE when i encouraged myself and entered Nihlathaks chamber...I just foolishly underestimated dmg from his CE skill and my sorcy nearly died (say 50 hitpoints was remaining...).Full rejuv potion and very quick teleport away saved her life and lesson was learned, i think...

    As for Act 5 Hell - i never seen so many CI monsters in my Diablo career...I've been lucky, when i had two types of CI monsters in area and one non CI, really...

    Anyas quest was not that much bad as it would be, but Succubi/Sirens made it very funny...

    Ancients - what a nice turn of events - i killed them very quickly on the first attemp, two of them non CI - yeah!!!

    WSK/Baal - same like with ancients, very friendly rolls of monsters...

    Ice queen is now Guardian...

    Finds:

    I won't list here all items she found while running, but just from my memory 4x Stormshield, Giant skull (bot grailers for me) and this nice surprise from chest behind Mephy - yeah SUR!!


    HForges:

    Normal/NM/Hell - thats pretty bad

    Future plans:

    MFO and then Mephy/Tunnels/Pindle until retirement or death....


    Thanks for reading this, hopefully it was not too long (or short - say, like Frostys thread)...

    Aditional thanks to Nightfish, his sorc inspired me, when i was choosing name for mine...


    RIP

    Re: Guardian Ice Queen (6) - MF Blizzy

    Gratz on your cool guardian. I got my pure cold sorc on lvl 92 at the moment. It is actually the fifth in a row, all the others died on the way to the top... :embarassed:

    Cold tree sorc is powerful indeed, if I remember right, my blizz makes also around 6000 dmg and have mf approx 300, but can be sometimes quite fragile. I use to run hell meph, tunnels and lk. Reason: Killed one sorc in dollpack @ wsk. Those dolls gives me the creeps, other sorc died @ act3 sewers, same reason. :undecided:

    Tunnels, pindle and meph are good targets. I personally just don`t like to run pindle. Anyways, GJ and one more time gratz. :smiley:

    Congrats on the guard :flowers:
    Just one comment - don't use 4 columns of full rejuvs. It makes you think the wrong way, like "I'm still too healthy to drink, I'm.. :yikes: " In HC, you should drink a healing potion every time you are not at full health, otherwise you are asking for trouble..

    Re: Guardian Ice Queen (6) - MF Blizzy

    Hmm, i'm not using it all the time, especially not, while i'm running Areas/Bosses...On the other side, if You meant to have first row filled by Health potions (or mix Health/Mana potions), i disagree, really dangerous situations in HC can be solved only by Full rejuv potions (its meant from my experience, You should have another :grin:) and therefore using health potions can be too slow, especially with my poor playstyle :rolleyes:

    Edit:Ohh damned, i forgot to say thanks for grats, guys...

    Re: Guardian Ice Queen (6) - MF Blizzy

    Not sure what do you mean by "first row", but you can keep like 3 columns of rejuvs and one column of healing potions.

    Of course you drink rejuvs in dangerous situation, that's what those are for. My point is that using rejuvs only inevitably results in walking around with ~3/4 health most of the time, because you don't want to "waste" a rejuv on minor injuries.

    EDIT: for MF sorcs, "walking around" basically translates into "teleporting around" which is even more risky..

    Re: Guardian Ice Queen (6) - MF Blizzy

    I meant first line of potions in belt...

    But right now its not important anyway just because she simply died Yesterday :rolleyes:

    Reason:Just because i'm so bad player, thats all :tongue:

    You've described this situation in your edit, i think...After some Pindle runs i decided to hunt for new Meph map...And whats the quickest way - tele over the wall and look, if there is entrance to the Meph fortress third lvl...And this time was not...Surprisingly , after this tele my sorcy ended inside of pack very angry dols, without any chance to do enything else then drink potions and hope for a little more time for another tele...But they've been not that much kind...After using some full rejuvs i made it more funny, when i accidentally hitted button for using Blizz and i killed them all :grin:, but my sorcy died also...

    I think having Occy on the switch at this time (she was completelly surrounded by dols) could save her life...

    Anyway every item listed on the beginning of this thread was lost - namelly Deaths Fathom, Arachnid and SoJ...I feel myself so sad right now...

    Only thing i can be proud of it is the fact, that i resisted darker thinkings in my mind and not used any tool for saving these items - in my eyes its equal to lost honor as a HC player (strange for You maby, but true for me)...

    Anyway thanks all for losing Your time with this thread, i will try to be better next time :thumbsup:

    @TmX:You are prophet, aren't You?

    Edit:Btw., isn't funny to lose Guardian at the same day when he/she is reported here on the forum ;-)

    Re: Guardian Ice Queen (6) - MF Blizzy

    Damn it, so much for this Shiver Armor thingy..
    Frozen Armor should have given you enough time to tele out - provided those pesky dolls can be frozen at all :undecided:

    I must admit I parked, retired, and deleted my only guardian almost immediately upon completion, so she had little chance to perish.

    Sorry for your loss and better luck next time :thumbsup:

    Re: Guardian Ice Queen (6) - MF Blizzy

    Funny Thyiad :grin: Nevermind :)

    Really strange thing is, that i lost four grailers (so im now at -30), but i'm much less sad then i was, when i lost my untwincked characters...

    Hmm, she carried very glorious name but her end was not that much glorious...Hopefully another lesson was learned...

    Re: Guardian Ice Queen (6) - MF Blizzy

    Congrats on the guardian, sorry to hear she died before I managed to post here... :badteeth: I guess I don't need to tell you that just teleporting through durance 2 is much safer for these low lifers than blasting blizzards when dolls might be lurking.

    Scant consolation, but if I remember well I managed to kill the original ice queen myself as well. I rebuilt her with the same name because I am not very fond of having numbers in names. I feel it robs the chars of their individuality a bit.
