    She basically teleported through all of act 5, and only killed the ancients and things around Baal. She had no chance of killing them. :D

    Congrats. :smiley:

    Yep! Happened to my barb when I got to the NM Durance a couple of days ago. Casting Town Portal "activated" the waypoint though (which was nice, because I was tired and not quite in the mood to go through Travincal again).

    Every Guardian is an uber-build in my book.

    That´s more than 'nothing much', I think. Of those five items, I have only seen Wizarspike despite a couple of (full clear) Guardians.

    Wow jiansonz. I've found a demonlimb before, MANY Duriel's shell's, Andy's visage was a fluke that I was disappointed over. :grin: It said Demonhead in gold and I thought it was a necro shield. Homonculous or whatever that necro shield is. Ists are chance.
    Wizardspike (my first one) was from Baal nightmare. He has fairly good chances at one.
    Duriel's are findable from NM meph. Had plenty of these.
    Dunno where demonlimb came from, but it dropped somewhere. :D
    Andy's visage came from the dungeon in the flayer jungle. That end unique firebreather guy (or his pack) dropped it for me.

    To me, only the Wizspike and Duriel's are worth a decent amount. Demonlimb some use for the AR, but it's not important; Andy's visage has -30 fire resist, and the other stats are only so-so (cept for the +2 skills :D) While I'll use Andy's, I wouldn't go hunting one. I'd prefer a Jalal's or Bartucs or some random sets.
    I thought I'd get some better equip for running around with about 300 mf since late normal.

    @FreakII
    As has been said, it's basically a mat/pat'd char, but done without death in HC mode.

    For that waypoint bug, I just cast townportal and it lit up. Oh, on another note, I don't remember her getting into any REAL trouble. Just some scrapes here and there. Difficult time in act4, but she survived fairly well, and rarely got to a 'slow-motion, heart in throat' moment. :D

    I don´t know why have never seen a Duriel´s shell (or Vampire Gaze, Skullders, etc.). There are a bunch of exceptionals that still eludes me.

    I see only about 20-30 Cuirasses with each character. The set one (forgot the name) has dropped a few times for me, but never a unique.

    Unlucky. I've seen about 15 Duriel's with my old chars (although I do run NM meph for skulders/shaftstop/butchers pupil/duriels etc,) 2 Skullders total, and 2 or 3 vampire gazes.
    What I've found very few of is elite uniques. Andy's is really my first big one other than my old Frostwind crypt sword (I miss it. :D)

    I've found 2 Duriel's in my entire career (1 eth :grin: ), and I've never found Skullder's or Vampiregaze. Nor have I found an Arreat's, or Homunculous, or Guardian Angel, in spite of doing many hundreds of NM and Hell Meph runs. I have been lucky enough to find 5 Harlies and a couple of Dragonscales though, so it's really all about luck.

    Oh, and I just found my first Jalal's from NM Baal.

    Edit: I forgot, to the OP: Congrats on the Guardian!:badteeth:

    Guardian + untwinked = uber, more than any version of SC char.

    Congratulations!

    An untwinked Guardian is always cool.
