Guardian Skunkerella Skunkerella, my Frozen Orb / Fire Ball sorceress, just became Guardian #4 in my quest to get Guardians in all seven classes. Taking her up against the Ancients filled me with dread, since sheâ€™s my main magic-finder. But my fears were unwarrantedâ€¦ my first roll for the Three Bullies was brilliantâ€¦ no FE, no Cursed, no bad Auras, and no fire/cold immune combinations. They ignored my merc, which was irritating, but otherwise they went down pretty easily. The Keep was only difficult on level 2, which was populated with Gloams. But the Throne was awfulâ€¦ OKâ€™s and gloams. No dolls, at least. The Minions were also fairly easy, though the Venom Lord pack killed off my merc a couple of times. Baal died almost instantly (static + kelpieâ€¦ yum), and dropped nothing of interest. Stats are below. Most of the gear was self-found from NM and Hell Meph, with the notable exception of the Shako. Now for the last threeâ€¦ my pally (stalled in the Durance), my barb (just croaked to the FE bug, gotta start over), and my druid (still in act 3 NM, after my first attempt died to FE Bremm Sparkfist).
