May as well introduce myself Howdy all, I'm made a few posts over here in the SPF. Before I start going too wild I should probably introduce myself. I'm a regular over at the sorc forum and a few people have asked me to check out a few things here. (you can blame FrostBurn and Thyiad for that.) Contrary to what the name plate says - I'm actually a guy. I'm one of those 30 something, married with 1.5 kids professionals. The .5 (our 2nd boy) just arrived about 3 weeks ago. I'm actually typing this one handed while I hold him with the other, so excuse any typo's please. I've been into D2 since, well, since D1. But unlike all you smart people here in the SPF, I've mainly stuck to b.net. Over the years I often take large breaks. I've probably lost more chars to expiration than...I don't know, let's just say I've lost a lot. I used to play on US West back in the 1.09 days, but since I started back up this spring I've been on US East, SC Ladder. I normally stick to sorcs, but I've dabbled in most types. Yes, just like everyone else on b.net I have the required hoto/enigma hammerdin too. But you will still see the original Mage_Chick or one of the many successors wandering around b.net when I feel like MFing. I've kinda gotten burned out on the game lately. I spend a lot more time in the forums than I do in the game playing. I suppose the main parts of the game that still interest me are the game mechanics and the interaction. I guess I can discuss all the mechanics here and the interaction is a lot better than b.net pubby games too. I've started reading through all the SPF guides, but it will probably take me a while to catch up on all the lingo. I think I got the whole vanilla vs RRM/RWM thing. Just be patient when I ask why you aren't using an anni or torch; I'm not the noob I may sound like, just new to SP. FrostBurn (and anyone else who's ever ventured over to the sorc forum) is probably tired of hearing it from me, but here it goes again. 1. No, Full Tal set is better than your set up. 2. Just read the Meteorb guide and get your slvl CM up to 17. 3. Full Tal + P Spirit + Magefists = 105% FCR. I'd say you can expect about 1/2 of all my posts to cover one of these three things. FrostBurn has drawn my attention to the BlizzBaller and I have to admit MageChick_IV will probably use blizzard. Oh yeah, I can never actually make my point as simply as I did above. If you see my name you should probably prepare yourself to read through 5 pages of numbers and charts. My appoligies up front. Happy MFing everyone, hope to see you around town.
