Hello, I used to lurk around these forums a while back and i recently decided to re-start my diablo sp career, I decided to go with a full re-start, as going into my old ATMA stashes and char files I would just get bored faster because i had some pretty good stuff around there. Anyways i started off making a javazon which is level 68 and farmed meph for a bit then i decided ok ill go back to a blizz sorc and so i now have Cinder the great blizzard sorc (i know). Cinder was a little confused as she started being a meteorb sorc but when she got into hell territory she saw how weak she was against some of the bosses and was at ache because all her life she just wanted to master the fire magic. So after a deep talk with Cain she decided to switch her main focus into the cold magic. She ran almost past every monster and tele'd away rushing herself to fight the prime evils and farm the brothers for the best of items so she could go to a place called Lower Kurast and then begin her quest for the very rare runes she had heard so many people talk about. She managed to kill baal at level 70 it was an intense fight, which ended with nothing but yellow items on the ground which made her kind of frustrated for some reason. After a good while hunting pindle and meph she now has gear to find items freely and is now starting her long quest to find runes. But might still do more pindle runs as she really wants to one day be a lightning master and is missing some core items. Anyways she is now level 87 almost ** and farming hell like theres no tomorrow.

I had a great time getting the javazon leveled to 68 and now with the sorc i have enjoyed farming all day getting items, i have gotten very lucky with my drops which is not of me so im just going with it. I had forgotten how much i loved this game. I hope to be writing up soon in the item find thread with some nice runes from LK. Thanks for anyone that took their time to read this and good luck.
