    She's got 'Stone' of Jordan and a Raven Froat. Only choice would be to sacrifice the CBF.. Made it through the Tombs, hopefully won't have to deal with it much more. The Grotesque (whatever they are called) in A4 should be easier to flank and attack the spawner.

    Granito (lvl 80) - A4 Hell

    Screenshot460.jpg

    Breezed through A3. Merc keeps walking too close to the battle and getting herself in trouble. When she dies, fpa drops from 10 to 13. That doesn't sound like much, but it feels awful. Her low poison resist has been annoying, but not really dangerous. HP drops slow enough that she can leech/pot to counteract. Contributed one decent find:

    Edit: Haven't used Impale really at all. Just checked on it though. Her AR with IK maul is ~7500. AR with Impale is 18K. Might want to start using that vs act bosses..

    Granito (lvl 81) - A5 Hell

    Screenshot462.jpg

    Valk + Decoy + D/A/E + Reanimated = A pretty good meat shield. Yet, Merc keeps getting herself into trouble. I've been really focusing on keeping her alive. That's been the most challenging part so far. I've been placing Valk + Decoy into the fray, and staying back to make sure I swat anything away that gets near the Merc.

    Still keep forgetting to use impale.. :confused:

    Been really trying to come up with a build for this theme. I want to make use of Blackhand Key, but all it really offers is some FCR and Grim Ward charges. I'd rather try it out on non-Necro, because why not? 'Black' for CB and Blackoak Shield/Alma Negra would be "melee" options on switch. Here are my ideas if anyone has input/suggestions:
    • Furvus (Necro) - Revive (dark grey summons) + Poison Skills + Curses
    • Kuroi (Assassin) - Cloak of Shadows + MB + Venom + Shadow Master
    • Noire (Paladin) - Conversion + Smite + BH? (not very "dark")

    A5 pics:
    Slow kill speed. Especially on PI/Stone skin monsters.
    Screenshot481.jpg
    Madawc spawned w/holy freeze. So, had to chase him around taking flak from the other two for the first half of battle. Screenshot482.jpg
    Lister was actually easier than I thought. 2nd wave was the most painful. Anything that resurrects or re-spawns caused her trouble with the slow kill speed. Screenshot485.jpg
    Baal was Baal. Screenshot487.jpg

    Thoughts:
    She was actually quite a bit of fun. Kept with the theme and used Steeldriver/upped for most of the game. The 10fpa actually felt fast.. Merc died quite a bit. Having to chase after ranged monsters led Rogue into the fray, and bit it quite often. Dropped players to p1 halfway through hell because progression was just so slow. Was handling p3 just fine before that, but A5 did seem like it would have been painful on p3.

    4/5 Points for item theme and 3/5 points for build

    I take it you’re using a separate HoMule stash for these?

    @ffs :p

    I type it that way on purpose every single time now. :D

    Who was it? @zemaj? Had it spelled that way on item readout.. :p

    Edit: It's like the top result for a Google search of 'raven froat' :D

    That says it all.. Just beat NM, and it feels like I've been playing on Hell difficulty. This one is going to be tough to get over the finish line.. :confused:

    Körperteile (lvl 67) - A2 Hell
    Finally got RWM working again! Big thanks to @maxicek. So, I could make this, and continue Körperteile's journey.
    Screenshot001.jpg
    Ran into his first physical immune, and realized he can do zero damage vs PIs.. Looks like he is going to have to add Berserk to his arsenal.. He manages a respectable 200-500 damage with his daggers, and a massive 500-1000 throw damage! :p

    He is entertaining though. All the monsters walking away with a trail of blood from OW, all the while getting axes thrown into their backs. :D

    Could not pump the pots fast enough to keep Merc alive vs Andariel:

    Thanks @Jocular! Although, I don't recommend most of these.. Unless you're bored with beating the game, and figure you'll give the monsters their turn to smack you around a bit.. :confused:

    That's be best part! I was thinking one up yesterday, where each character in the Sept is allowed to pass one item on to the next. So by the last character they will receive 6 items. Also, each character has a set minimum /p#. The first one can't go below /p1, the next can't go below /p2, etc on to the last who can't go below /p7.

    It'd be a fun challenge, especially deciding which items would be best to pass on. What would be good to pass on to a barb might be useless for a sorc later on.
