He had only one death outside of the Ancients FE bug. That was in the chaos Sanc in hell which upon dieing, I realized that I had only 85 strength naked, so I couldn't equip my armor, which was my lowest requirement. So I asked a friend to help me with the CS, and then i leveled in the Crystalline Passage and promptly put 3 points in STR so i wouldn't have that problem again. The Ancients was the touchest fight of all. I died three times to the FE bug. I checked two of them each time, and then gambled the third because they were upon me. I re-rolled the map 4 times, twice to FE bug, and once because all three Ancients were Mana burn, and once because of Curse/Fanat/Extra Strong/Extra Fast mods had spawned. The last spawn Talic and Korlic were MB and some other random mods, and Mawdawc was Stone skin/Magic resistant. Somehow, Korlic, the leaper went down in about 10 seconds. Great, I thought, the first is the easiest. Well, I didn't have prevent monster heal anywhere, and my merc was attacking mawdawc and I was attacking Talic. With only 68% chance to hit, he was healing faster than i could damage him. Great. The tricky part was to get my merc to attack Talic, as I needed to get rid of the MB mod. I rarely WW'd against him, as my blue bulb was empty. When he finally died mawdawc moved to a corner and he died fast. Getting to baal was easy. No black souls or oblicion knights in the WSK, although there were ON's in the Throne, although I only had to fight one boss pack in the actual throne room. Got lucky I guess. The toughest monster I fought all game, and I why I didn't take a screenie i don't know, was a Burning Soul boss pack in the Plains of Despair. He was Lightning enchaanted, Convicion Aura and Mana burn. Did I mention you can't leech off of those things? He eventually died to one WW, but i did take a good chunk of damage from him and his boss pack. Anyway, that's all. I enjoyed the character very much, and I will write a guide on him later. It should be out later next week. crg EDIT: forgot colors EDIT #2: I just realized that the AMTA readout of the hone Sundan said 40% IAS. I wonder why? It has 3 shaels in it. Wierd.
