    My first 1.10 HC and first ever Guardian

    My Fishymancer made Guardian last night (very late night), at level 83.

    He is my first ever Guardian, and first HC 1.10.

    There are few things worth to point out with this build, and during play time.

    1) He didn't get help form anyother char/item, all "solo" and only used he found on the way.
    2) All his items are pretty crappy, none would hold any trade value at all (not even give away for free).
    3) He beat NM and almost the whole act1 hell with empty handed, practicly naked. The only monster he couldn't beat naked is hell Andy.
    4) I believe he found a bug in game that almost took his life: He was in ancient's way, and cleaned the area he was standing and surround, so there were 100% no monsters near, and the ground was cleaned as well, all CEed and revived. I did a cube there to save space (didn't want to leave, why waste a TP?), and I noticed his health bar suddenly dropped to almost ZERO, I hit full reg posion, and esc the cube screen, I found nothing around, all skelly and revives were doing nothing, no fight, no dead body. Where was the "attack" coming from? Some kind of delayed damage?
    5) he finished official Fishy build at lvl 76, since then, no single skill pts spend, and about 44 stat pts saved. Don't know what to do with them yet.
    6) shaman is one of the worst monster type for this build, gloam, blacksoul, burningsoul are bad monsters, but not as bad as shaman.
    7) I met quite few unbreakable PIs, and half of them were not possible to kill with this build.
    8) sometime, I had to play reckless in order to pass certain area, not good for HC, but can be done.
    9) I don't believe you can beat the game naked with Fishymancer, at least, not HC.

    I cant remember their names, but there is a type of monster in the Ancients Way that seems to be able to attack through the walls. These are the one's that push parts of themselves through the ground to attack... it seems if they sense you they can attack through the ground, under the walls, and hit you, could it have been these guys?

    Congrats on the Guardian, I hope to get my SC Fishy to Pat someday... *works on NM*

    congratulations! i'm always amazed at people that manage to get a guardian!

    regarding your bug: there was a bug in 1.09 that was primarily an issue with pindleskin where he would try to ressurect himself, but couldn't because he was a unique monster. so far no problem, right? the catch is that his failed resurection counts as him DYING again - meaning his death explosion if he was cold or fire enchanted would be set off again. if you happened to be standing near a recently slain FE undead boss of the same type as pindleskin (the skinny guys with the big swords) and he tried to resurect himself, that could have set off the FE death explosion, and would have easily reduced any chars hitpoints to almost nothing (or less) for no apparent reason.

    I'm sure not them, I cleaned all surround areas, no monsters within at least 2 screen away.

    @whomhead: I CEed and revived all bead bodies, nothing but items left on ground. Those undead skelly looking, self revive guys, I always CE them all, since they hold no value for me (they are bad revive).

    Great job on the Guardian :clap: Feels good to get that first one done, eh?

    And I like your attempt at the untwinked naked necro - quite impressive. I'm thinking of trying one of those (an artymancer build) but will have to wait until after I give the Sept a good shot.
