    Introducing...

    ...Patriarch Desaix, a pure Fanatic Zealot. At Clvl 84: 20 Zeal, 20 Fanatacism, 20 Sacrifice, 20 Holy Shield, and the rest in Defiance.

    After happily ambling through Normal and Nightmare, this boy started discovering that all my Meph runs with my Meteorb were creating bad drop-karma, so this poor sucker picked up screw all until Hell, when it was actually becoming quite a problem.

    I finally picked up a Dark Adherent to complete the Disciple, which made him pretty tough, after which I twinked him with a Baranar's Star and a Stormshield, after which the only things that killed him were Lister (spawned Immune to Physical) and the Ancients (Madawc was fire enchanted). Glad he's done, since he's been in the works since about July.

    Separately, questions:

    1. Where is the best place to find charms? (Comment out of experience if there isn't actually a stat-wise good spot.)

    2. When is "absorb" checked?

    3. Do resistances and absorb roll on the full elemental damage or whatever the first one leaves?

    Cheers,
    30-30

    Well done!!
    As for the charms, hell cows is good, since theres unhealthy amounts of cows. The same thing goes for flayers, but they each have less chance of droping one.
    Dont know when absorb is checked, but i know that absorb/res works on the remaining damage, after all things before it in the chain have taken effect.

    Congratulations! :)

    For the answer to questions 2 & 3 there's an Energy Shield sorc guide somewhere with the full list of what order stuff happens in with elemental damage. Absorb definitely goes after resist though, and you must be alive after damage in order to recieve the healing effect.

    grats on the pat.
    cows are good places too run for charms. the first areas where +skill GC's can be gotten are normal baal and then not again until lower kurast nm onwards.
    kurast areas are good because they can drop skills charms but none of the higher lvl mods. so they will be more likely to come up with a skill.

    That may be the most profound thing I've ever read. Also note, you must be alive for healing potions, wells, and town healers to have their desired effect. :)

    (I KID! I JOKE! Oh man, Shade's gonna kill me.)

    Anyway, congrats, 30-30! Zealots are just a blast to play, and to Pat one makes it all the sweeter. :)

    Not as profound as a small-print notice inside an aquarium:

    'If you can read this, you don't need glasses - but you may need an aqualung'

    Anyway, you all know what I meant. :) The damage is applied before the healing, so if it's enough to kill you then you die and don't get healed.

    Congrats on the pat, 30-30.

    I've no idea what the answers are to your questions though.
