Matriarch LacusClyde. That was a blast. The fastest matriarch ever for me. LacusClyde is named after one of the characters in the anime series Gundam Seed. Apparently they changed the spelling of her name in the 20+ days I took to complete her, but wth. *shrugs* Matriarch LacusClyde. lvl 86 strafer.

Charms include a Gheed's, 1 shimmering GC I forgot to take out. and a lot of dual modded elemental sc of vita Resist is 26/26/84/26. Merc uses eth shaeled reaper's along with Duriels and Vampire Gaze. Comments: The first time that I put so little in vit and neglected resistances. Normal and NM was easy , even on p8. For hell, most of the game was done in p8 except act 4 and 5, which was done on p3 and p1. I got anxious to finish her up. She died a total of six times, which all of which was avoidable. Once in NM act 5 by infidels, once in hell chaos by a spawner while cursed, twice to hell diablo's fire attack and 2 to FE ancients. The control provided by silence was superb. Monsters are either blinded or running away in fear. Damage was lowish , 669-1971 with might aura from merc. but her gear wasn't completed yet and is still liable to increase. PIs are settled by a HelShael Hellrack. This usage of the hellrack gave me the inspiration for my next zon: a non-burrito crossbow zon. She shall run hell pits for the rest of her career, for the MFO. In all and all, a very fun build. Next up should be my convicted zealot, my fireball templar and a LF/PJ zon. edit: pat/mat no: 14 for me and Hellforge dropped Mal.
