Intro, pit and pat. Hi all ! This introduction to who I am comes a bit late since I've already posted on this forum. Anyway, I'm a french student in chemistry (preparing the "agrÃ©gation" to become a teacher) and Diablo-addicted. After playing on battle.net during the 1.09, I started playing solo after the 1.10 patch because : 1- I wanted to be able to drop the "ladder only" items and didn't want to be limited in time (ladder season) 2- I had started playing mostly solo anyway after a life of exp leeching in cow levels, and liked it. Since then, I've pated two characters in softcore with only items I dropped myself. First my fanatic zealot at lvl 83 equipped with the razor's edge, tiamat's rebuke, kira's guardian, skullder's ire, the mahim oak curio, tal's belt, venom grip, infernostride, a nagelring and carrion wind and with my defiant merc equipped with tal's mask, shaftstop and the spire of honor. Then my skelliemancer at level 87 equipped with tarnhelm, a 32mf ammy, cairn shard, stormshield, skullder's ire, tal's belt, chance guards, two nagelrings and mf magic boots (no crushing blow set-up) with a might merc equipped with natalya's totem, shaftstop and bonehew. I've also completed the classical fifty pitruns with my necro who wore ~520 mf on /players 3 during the runs. I haven't the full listing here, but know that it yielded me two stormshields, gris' corona, mav' diadem, trang's belt a ko rune (my best rune so far on single player) a lightsaber (I lost due to a bug in atma) and a unique winged harpoon as highlights. And the tamoe highland's that I had to pass through to reach the pit yielded me my bonehew. It took me three or four days of hard work to finish the fifty runs. Finally I want to thank all the people who wrote all the litterature gathered on these forums without which I would have stayed all my life a pathetic b.netter.
