MeatNGreed is my first Mat / Pat ever since joining the SPF and starting all over again. Yes, my 99er Sorc, level 98 now, still hasn't gotten that far ;).

Anyway, for most part MeatNGreed is your everyday Lightning Fury Javazon. I created her to have a runner for the Cows part of the upcoming RFL, hence the name. Ironically I'm thinking about another character and build for that now, but that's another story.

Leveling her was the fastest leveling experience I have ever had I think. CS early on and LF, still combined with CS, after that are so ridiculously overpowered that everything just melted. Certainly because I also had an Infinity for the merc available. Add to that the fact that I had a lot of faster run/walk while leveling (boots, Valkyrie Wing and Titan's) and it's easy to see why I got to Act 1 Hell in no time. Up to that point I just rushed through the game on /p8, gaining a few levels at normal and NM Pindle, although I don't think I needed many more when I arrived there.

When she got to the Pit in Hell, at level 78, she took a stop there to gain a few levels and get used to it in general. Runs were slowish due to not having Enigma, but even then it wasn't too bad, and she was level 86 in no time. At that point she proceeded through the game, finishing it not much after, getting to 87 or **.

After that I have been doing some Cow runs, mixed with more Pit runs. She was almost level 89 when I took the character dump info, but got to 90 since then. No major finds yet, except for Tal's Armor, which was a grailer. She got an Um from Hell forge and found another Um as well as 2 Puls in the Pits.

As for skills, I decided not to put any points into D/A/E, because I had quite bad experiences with getting locked by those skills in the past. This means no Valk, but Decoy serves just fine. MeatNGreed hasn't seen a single death yet, so for me this means it was the right decision.

Like I said, gear is pretty standard. Still using an Isted Shako because I don't have Griffon's. Isted, because I'm not really swimming in lightning facets yet, so she just borrowed this one from my Sorc. For a while I used Spirit as a shield, but soon I noticed that the advice of others was correct (of course it was :oops:), and that -ELR was far more important than anything else, especially since I didn't have Griffon's. So I switched to a 3os Head Hunter's Glory instead, which made a big difference against breakable LIs. Against LIs the loss of +skills from Spirit doesn't matter, they die fast as it is.

The gear definitely still needs some tweaking, beyond the obvious Enigma (one Ber short, go go RFL !!!) and Griffon's, but I have been too lazy to do so, or I just don't have better gear. The former mainly applies to my merc's Andy's, which still needs an ias jewel. The latter to my gloves, which are horrible, but the best I got at the moment, at least for this purpose. And yes, I could go on a shopping spree ... I hate those, so not going to happen anytime soon.

I only have 2 skillers at the moment, which is definitely on the low side, although I didn't have the impression I missed them that much. I still need to sort the rest of the charms out, as I just threw them in her inventory as I saw fit, thinking that she'd need lots and lots of mana. She currently has some 800 mana after BO, but never even comes close to having to drink a mana potion, barring mana burn, so I can definitely throw some of those mana charms out for something more useful.

Not much else to say I think. MeatNGreed will most likely continue her career in Pits and Cows, with maybe occasionally some WSK and Throne Room trips or some other runs thrown in the mix. I wouldn't be surprised if she'd hit at least level 95 at some point, knowing how fast leveling goes at higher player settings, which is exactly what she'll do, as finding runes is what she'll be after.

Good job, conratulations! LF/CS Zon is really fun char to play through the game with. I've actually been thinking about making a second one, since I didn't have Infinity during my first playthrough (I used poison skills as back-up). Lightning Fury must be one of the most satisfying skills in the game, everything just melts :p.

One thing I'm curious about: I noticed you only have 20 IAS from the gear. With 30 IAS you'd reach the next breakpoints for both LF and CS (11 frames and 9 frames, respectively). Have you considered trying that? If you have another Shako, you could put IAS jewel there (since you probably don't want to Hel out Ist), or use HLW or Cat's Eye. Or possibly do both and reach 55 IAS and even better breakpoints (10 frame LF / 8 frame CS).

Of course, Javazon doesn't necessarily need to reach the best breakpoints to kill fast, it depends on the player and what you feel is comfortable. I don't really know if there's much difference, effiency-wise, between 30 and 55 IAS, but I prefer the 55 IAS myself.

Thanks.

I have seen the ias breakpoints mentioned and adviced before, but truth to be told, everything melts in one or a few hits anyway, so I didn't feel like only having 20% ias made me miss out on much. She was killing well on /p7 in both Pits and Cows. In Pits monsters have low hitpoints, so they die fast. One to two throws for non-LIs, a bit more for breakable LIs. For Cows, I'm still trying to improve my run times, which are slow, but I had the feeling this has nothing to do with attack speed, but with proper herding instead.

I have the feeling that, to efficiently run Cows, learning to herd big crowds is essential. With Enigma it's probably a lot easier on it's own, and even now without, I think there's still a lot of room for improvement for me. But when I do manage to get a big crowd together, they die in 2 - 3 throws, so again, nothing that would change drastically with more ias. But maybe I'm just wrong on that ...

For now my plan was to leave her as she is, and only optimize her when I have an Enigma for her, and probably also a Griffon's. For now I've reverted to playing my Sorc, hopefully she'll find the goodies soon. Yesterday my 7th green Diadem dropped, can't be long before it's a golden one, right?

Good job, congrats!

I've never looked back when I went for 55IAS. But true, most of the time it's probably not that important. I find it very useful against archer packs in the Pits, as those need more throws than others and you don't want to face them for too long. Something to consider, at least after you have found that Griffon's.
