I am the ONLY spearazon on HCLwest? OK, I've talked about this in the hardcore forum (I only play HC) a little, but last night was the kicker. NM baal run, full game, HCL west. While people join game, I go down to Halls of Pain for amusement. Find some nice low level uniques, put those away. Sorc says "1" (for the HC challenged, that's a safe TP). We all go down, and I start LS-ing away, mowing down large packs of monsters (LS lvl30, max 2 synergies- ~2K per hit, 31 hits). Someone says "Kool, a chain-light sorc". There are no chain light sorcs in game, just the usual meteorb sorc. I say, "no, thats just me". Then the questions come: "how can you do that without javelins? I thought you had to throw" me: "LS" other ZON in game: "you do have to throw. She's just got a pike on switch for the black souls" me: "no switch- lightning strike" other zon: "so you're a fendazon?" me: "no, fend sucks. just use jab for light immunes. I use mostly LS & CS" other zon: "and it does all that lighting?" Sigh. I keep hoping to run into my spear-sisters on the Bnet, just to swap war-stories, but all are gone... Javs & shields are for pussies! let the flaming commence.
