Hey all, hope everyone is doing well. So, I had a bunch of characters on D2 in the past a lot of Paladins and most memorably a 90 something poison necro that I geared up and I was quite impressed by the poison damage, but this was awhile ago. Currently playing a lvl 77 Paladin on the US East Ladder (if my avatar didn't give it away). Like being a noob again and still in the hunt for GG items. This is the first time I can say I'm really serious about building a character and doing a lot of research on different items and runewords before hand, plus all of the experience I have had in the past. It was nothing like this however and on 1 character I even bought some GG items to take the easy way up before, but like I said this was awhile ago. I had ran through Diablo 1 on single player mode to get pumped up and started playing fresh when the new Ladder started and I might play Diablo 3 to follow the storyline, ive heard some good and bad things about D3, but I think ill give it a shot. My question is this, I have a 4os Great hauberk (466 defense) and a 1os Ogre axe (145 damage) (thinking about getting Larzuk to socket this axe). Should I wait for better items to build Fort and Obedience ? I'm still looking for a Lo rune, so chances are I might get better before I find one for the armor, lol, if I ever find one. Lets say I was ready now, should I wait for better ? is it worth it to socket these items ? They are both listed as elite body armor and polearm, but I understand that they are obviously not the best in the game https://diablo2.diablowiki.net/Body_Armor and https://diablo2.diablowiki.net/Polearms/. Peace out P.S I should add that I started playing D2 in class, shortly after it was released, I downloaded the act 1 demo from download.com, installed it on the school computer and really milked whatever Xp I could from one act, and I was hooked on the game instantly.
