    Matriarch PandorasRevenge

    Hello all. Here is character number 5 in my quest to mat/pat all classes, my meteorb sorc.

    Matriarch PandorasRevenge
    level 78

    max Fireball, Meteor, Frozen Orb, Fire Mastery (not quite maxed all the way yet)

    stats with gear:

    str:92
    dex: 89
    vit: 340
    ene: 67

    resists in hell: 43/32/50/50
    FB dam: 4578-5031
    FO dam: 435-456
    Meteor dam: 11K

    Gear:
    Occy with fire rainbow facet
    Upped Skin of the Vipermagi
    Harley with cold rainbow facet
    "Um" Lidless Wall
    Frostburn/Silkweave
    Gloom's Trap
    SOJ/Raven Frost
    Volcanic Amulet of the Giant (+3 fire skills/14 str)

    Charms:
    Gheed's and two Cold skillers w/11%GF and 4 dex
    rest of charms added:
    190 life
    152 mana
    other in resists and random stats

    Holy Freeze merc
    Vamp Gaze
    Duriels
    eth Spire of Honor

    I've read a lot of mat threads for this build and I will personally attest now to their truth. Very easy build once you get past the early levels where you struggle for mana. The rest of the game is a picnic save for the Ancients who took me a while to beat but I eventually rolled some vulnerable stats.

    I was robbed in the extreme as far as drops went. My Hell hellforge drop was a Lum. :mad: The only drop I think I kept were a pair of eth Ghoulhides for my ethereal grail dropped by Diablo.

    That's five down and two to go; assassin and amazon. I had begun a dual claw venom 'sin but am not so sure if it is viable with the limited 'sin gear I've found. So, can any of you 'zon and 'sin fanatics out there give me your most viable twinked build? I was thinking of a trapper for the 'sin and I'm undecided on the zon...maybe jab/light fury(?).

    So far I have:

    Paladin: (Frost Zealot) Solomon's Knight
    Barb: (Conc/Berserk) DrBannerLives
    Necro: (Fishymancer) GoblinMaster
    Druid: (Fury) JanosSkorzeny
    Sorc: (Meteorb) PandorasRevenge

    Congratulations on the matriarch! I have one in the works, but she can't make it past the Ancients. :D

    Grats :)

    I would have put Pdiamong in the shield instead of that Um though :D

    Congrats on the mat:D

    as for the sin and the zon
    the easiest zon is probably a LF/PJ zon. cracked javelins anyone?
    and for the sin why not try out one of these.

    probably a trapper would be easiest untwinked although apparently PS is alot of fun when you get the hang of charges.

    Congrats!

    If you have a Witchwild String then I think that an upgraded WWS strafer/Lightning Fury amazon is a cakewalk through Hell save for a couple of parts (if you go players8 all the way).

    Magic, Physical, Lightning damage. Decent crowd control and ranged attacker. Extra meat shields from your Valks and decoys and the ability to slow down ranged attackers with Slow Missle.

    I've only played a Dtail/Talon assy and she's only level 29 or so. Powerful but not sure how powerful she will be in Hell on higher players settings. I'm sure that players 1-3 is not much of a problem in Hell though.

    You're right. Because I am the only one here who knows how to do Countess runs and cube an Um. I have stated before that those CoH given to me by my brother are long deleted. Frankly, I am a little tired of getting this from people every time I post a mat/pat.

    Great job!

    I'd say go for the Javazon and the Trapper. They are both pretty cool.

    The UM rune is much more useful in runewords than in a shield, IMO, but hey, I only have the one...

    Nicely done! :thumbsup:

    Just a question since I may do one of these later on. What part of the game where the hardest except for Ancients?

    Good luck on the other two.

    Honestly, the only really difficults part was the Ancients. Now, the first 4 acts in normal were tedious and a bit frustrating as I struggled with my low level gear and mana issues. But after I cleared lvl 30...piece of cake. Very easy character to manage. I highly recommend the build.
