    Is Ladder more difficult?

    Hi all, I want to get a piece of all those juicy ladder-only items, so I made my first ladder character yesterday.

    well, long story short, I'M GETTING STOMPED!!!! I've made it to level 14, and have found some decent rares, but I'm draining my manabulb completely to kill one Yeti! It isn't a twinking issue either, as I still remember my first characters clearly (started after 1.10) and NONE of them had this much trouble!

    Basically, I'm just wondering if Ladder IS actually harder, or am I just imagining things?

    By the way, thank you to whomever gave me an IK maul and Milabrega's Orb on my first 30 seconds of ladder play. Drinks are on me. :buddies:

    yes it is harder, but not that hard. you don't really notice the difference until hell.

    from other "untwinked" threads, i hope you aren't using a sorc. most people who suggest starting out untwinked with a sorc haven't done it themselves, and just assume it's better because of tport.

    what they fail to remember though is that tport is lvl 18, and it doesn't kill monsters.

    if you don't want to play untwinked, take a stroll by the low lvl item fund stickied up top.

    I started with a Pure Lightning build and got by really well.

    heh, my first ladder sorc was FB/orb pvm. i ended up with only 6-10 skill points in meteor which i regret. my second char was also a sorc and the only twinked item she got was a lidless wall. she was pure light.

    but superhal is right. its harder, but i build most my chars untwinked until they are lvl 80+ anyways because i'm too lazy to mule. and it only really gets harder in hell.
