I made a bet with my friend that I could complete single player /players 8 hardcore hell. The only rules are, I can't use any programs or 3rd party programs. I have to complete hell, type /players 8 at the start of every game, and if I die I lose the bet. I made a trapsin and just hit level 61 in Nitemare. I'm curious what kind of items/build should I strive for as Hell approaches. I decided to use a shield/claw build as it's difficult to find good claws in SP. I use a defense merc from normal for defiance aura. So here's some questions. 1) What should my skill progression look like? Should I just be maxing trap skills? More into Fade? More into Shadow Master? 2) What Item bonuses should I look for in armor? FHR? All Res? 3) What runewords/unique/rare items should I search for before running through nitemare? 4) What especially should I look out for in hell to avoid dying? 5) I have Nef/Lum for Smoke and a 2 os Superior Breastplate. Should I wait to find a higher quality armor to make the smoke? 6) With info below, what should be my priority? Right now I'm wearing Artic armor/belt for MF, MF gloves, MF boots, Rhyme Shield, 20 Ias Claw (I just got a +2 Lightning Sentry +2 Mind blast claw) Lore Helm, MF rings, Mahim-Oak necklace. I have a Lum rune I plan on making Smoke with. With Fade I have 42/75/75/48 Res. My Merc is using Strength runeword, Stealth armor, and Duskdeep Helm. Thanks!
