    My first near perfect roll! A tale of obsession...

    Hello all.

    I like to buy good items where possible and have saved up for the odd perfect runeword in the past, but have never had the good fortune to roll one myself! I seem to be preternaturally unlucky with rolling and tend never to get past the better half of a possible range.

    The second element of this story is the fact that some silly chump sold me a near perfect glitched Sacred Armour with 3 sox for a Lem a couple of weeks ago (1,340+ def). It seemed the natural choice to roll my new A5 support Barb a Duress in it.

    But things can go too far - my usual crappy luck stuck with me for the first 7-8 rolls, with nothing above +167% ED. I was starting to panic then I steeled myself and bought another 8 Ums. On the 7th roll I got a lovely +197% ED and almost chickened out! Sighing loudly, I Hel'ed the armour again and got ready to roll my last 7 Ums.. Things went from bad to worse, until on either my 22nd/23rd roll I got the elusive +200% ED :grin:

    Is it worth 3 HRs? Is it hell! But still, I'm very happy and it just goes to show that Diablo II has enough hooks to make even a sensible player go just a bit stupid every now and again....

    The finished Duress!

    :shocked: That's better than an nice stone armor, defense wise. Grats mate!
    You must've had some balls to reroll that 197% with only 7 ums to go. Odds were you weren't going to roll something better. Good job :thumbsup:

    [nitpicking]You realise there's a variable damage mod on the runeword to, right :evil:[/nitpicking]
