    Meet Gimli - Level 99 Berserker Barb (1.09)

    My Barbarian Gimli hit level 99 on Tuesday night in a MP game. The usual crowd was there: Phylogen, Jbbto, Ryondaahl and even Icebird made an appearance. Thanks to the newer and occasional visitors like Serdash, Reborn and Solancea too. He is my third level 99. He has been so much fun to play. He is just a bully! :) I am really proud of his damage and it is not inflated by poison either. He has no points in dexterity either. I did players 24 solo Anicent Way runs with him pretty easily. He does surprisingly well in cows too but using concentrate for leech is more important there. Here are the stats. He gets by with realitively low life and leech but the huge damage makes it easy to fill both bulbs in a few hits. He uses Battlecry when needed and not much can hurt him between that and 45% PDR he is wearing.

    Congratulations on reaching 99...at first I thought it was 1.10 and was wondering how you could get 3 lvl 99...then I used my brain and read what you said properly. It's nice to have someone to MP otherwise melee characters are a little slow...Messerschmidt's Reaver=nice.

    Good job. Congratulations.

    I've been wondering for a while whether the Battle Cry reduction stacks with % PDR, effectively reducing physical damage by >50%. Apparently, its does for Gimli. Do you know if Battle Cry and PDR stack in version 1.10?

    Also, Players 24 mode? How'd you do that?

    Congratulations on 99, D2A! :clap:

    How many of them you have in 1.09?


    edit:

    @ Quickdeath

    In 1.09b even players 64 was possible :)

    In patch v1.09b the players setting was capped at 64 instead of 8.

    They do stack in 1.09B and PDR can be up to 75% in 1.09 too. I don't know about 1.10. We do many players 64 runs thru areas. :) If Gimli has company the lowest we go is usually players 48. I have dual Grandfather Swords he uses sometimes too for Whirlwind.


    Lprman - Gimli is my third level 99. Merla Tri-Elemental Sorceress (F0/FW/Nova) and Sir Galahad (Fanatic/Zealot Pally) are the other two. I have a level 95 artillery Necro, level 94 Mace Barb (MF), level 89 Bowazon, level 80 WW/Fury Druid too. :)

    Congrats D2A :clap: very fine accomplishment!

    I always get a little envious of the big-hurty-stick characters that are posted. I'm not good at playing them, and seem to fall back on caster types. Posts like yours give me some inspiration!

    Well done!:clap::clap:
    Is there a table with exp/HP increases for 1.09b, up to p64? because i have a 1.09 sorc and LFzon in the making (still in normal) and would like to know how time efficient it can be later on.
    EDIT: why no dex?, surely you could have sacrificed a few points from str to keep your chance to hit high.

    I enjoyed him the most of all mine. You should try a hurty one. ;)


    I am sure one of the stat experts could tell you more precisely. HP increase I believe are always multiples of the normal amount a minion would have. Experience is not that proportional. Above 8 it starts sliding fast compared to how many HP things have. It is just too easy for Gimli on anything less than players 16 though. He 1 hit kills uniques a lot of times at less than that.

    Gimli didn't need the dexterity. His AR is listed for each. He had 95% hit chance on about anything including cows.
