    My gold horker on the paper.

    Okay, I though some gear for him.
    He will be killing NM council and eldrich / shenk for gold.

    IK helm lem+lem
    Wealth RW as armor
    Infernostrides as boots.
    Two Bo spears / 2 lem'd Ali baba's
    78% gf goldwrap as belt
    Dual Dwarf stars.
    Some chance guards
    3War Cries amulet.

    Charms will consist of a ghetto setup of +gf charms and one gheed's fortune.
    (10gf sc's coupled with some +30 gf GC's and maybe couple of resist charms to up my survivability.

    Merc will be a Prayer merc with eth insight + eth Crown of thieves + eth smoke 1800def.

    Any feedback? :thumbsup:

    I'm thinking about changing the armor for duriel's so that merc could have CBF...

    40 gf is the cap on GC's

    I'd be tempted to gear the merc up more for damage, but I've always run Hell Travi on my GF barbs before, so no real idea if your merc has enough pewpew to kill there.

    If your insight is high damage and you add upped Duriel Shell he should be good for Hell council which will pay a lot better in terms of "good" rare items.

    I read about more and more people making a GF barbs. What is the purpose of this build? Just to gamble rare circlets? Because I can't think of any other item worth gambling at the end of the day. Finding gold for repairing or ressurrecting merc doesn't seem like an issue.

    Gambling - either for rare circlets or for base items to craft with (or to sell the gold for runes so other ppl have gold to gamble / buy craft items).

    You can also gamble rings and amulets, remember rares can be very valuable. I actually prefer the goldfind necro to the goldfind barb but that is more about style of play than anything else.

    Re: My gold horker on the paper.

    Why NM? Might as well follow Mal's leaping guide and assuming your merc has a decent weapon, you should be fine - that's what I have used and while it can be repetitive, its a nice change from my sorcs, sins, and hdin.

    People often do NM because it is easier to kill the council/survive but the gold return is about the same as hell. I like hell better because of the rares that can drop.

    Re: My gold horker on the paper.

    When I was on bnet, NM was too fast, they'd all drop too quickly and I wouldn't get drops like mals or mara's - The risk of a temp ban was bad enough, the lack of drops sealed the deal.

    Granted, if your'e on SP and looking for gems and jewels/charms to reroll, the speed is welcome.

    I'd forego the WC ammy for a TP ammy, unless you find one that has both of course. Being able to TP your merc where you want him is amazingly useful and speeds up your runtime noticeably, and obviously the costs of recharging an amulet arent going to matter much to a GF barb.

    Re: My gold horker on the paper.

    If u only doing nm run, maximazing gold find is more important then others. So just let ur merc takes the kill, its easy and whats more is u get crap load of gold

    set up:
    Crown of theive 100%gf (lem'd for 150)
    Wealth rw armor
    80% gf gold wrap
    2x dwarf star
    80% gf ammy
    80% gf magic/rare boot(hell u can even buy one of the magic one with 80% gf from anya)
    Chancies glove
    2x 6 lem'd crystal sword

    inventory:
    6x40 gf gc + 9 x 10 gf sc and a 120gf/15 vander reduce gheed and a barb
    torch ( always leave 8x space in ur inventory to pick up stuff :D, u never know hwo many skiller I pick up in nm council. that extra 100 gf is not worth it)

    merc:
    crown of theive 100% gf (lem'd for 150, eth or not dont matters)
    eth bonehew duel lem'd
    eth wealth armor

    I pick up avarage of 250-300 k withy this set up. 10-12 run will fill up my inventory and stash gold limited too. Oh yea u might want a edge with 15% price reduce as well. With that u can gameble alot more then just with a gheed. Have fun :D

    I'd recommend obedience over insight, mana is no problem anyway.

    Re: My gold horker on the paper.

    Yeah, Obedience rocks, pity about the cold dmg on it, but apart from that it's pretty damn brilliant for this build. Got my GF barb up and running, went with a hybrid gf/mf setup:

    Tarnhelm "Lem"
    Echoing amulet of naffness - needs replacing with some nice rare once I've gambled it.
    Wealth DS
    2 Ali Baba's "LemLem"
    Chancies
    Upgraded Goldwrap
    2 Dwarf Stars
    80gf 30frw 30 fire res 15mf rare boots - the reason i made the char in the first place, wanted to use the nice boots i found.

    Merc is using:
    CoT (not sure what to socket here, apart from Lem ofc)
    Treachery (figured IAS = more attacks, so more CB from..)
    Obedience (not eth, will either get the eth one from my hdins merc - or buy an eth base)

    Dunno how you are only averaging 250-300k. My first run got me 700k, next 3 or so averaged about 500k. He's only lvl 75 (the merc is 71) and Hell travi is pretty easy unless one of them has conviction.

    1984gf (plus 139 on merc) and 398mf.

    (on a side note, gheeds go up to 160gf iirc, i'm using a 153 i think)

    /edit - ok the cold shatter is a pain, but not a clue why you'd want to take a Bonehew over an Obedience :confused: apart from the 2 Lem option, but I'd still take an Obedience any day.

    Re: My gold horker on the paper.

    i think theyre talking about NM council.... which IMO is pointless since hell council drops way more gold, way better stuff, and you can also go and kill shenk, eldric, and pindle all in about 4-5 minutes

    Re: My gold horker on the paper.

    My goldfind barb is getting on pretty decent considering..


    IK helm (Lem,Lem) 137 GF ,40 MF
    Wealth (Lem Ko Tir) 300 GF ,100 MF
    Ali Babax2 (Lem,Lem) 225 GF, 90 MF
    Goldwrap 80 GF, 30 MF
    Chance Gaurds 200 GF, 40 MF
    30 FR/W ,10 FHR, 33 Cold Resist,40 Light Resist 80 GF boots
    Amulet 80 GF (needs to be upgraded)
    2 x Dwarfs (Wouldn't mind getting 2 perfect MDR by 15 just for perfection)

    160/40/14 Gheeds (Its the only gheeds I have with 160 GF)
    8x 10 GF small charms with random mods, 2 with 5 all resists
    5 x 40 gf gcs with random mods. Mana/Resists ect
    1 low anni
    1 low torch


    Merc is using Ebotd GPA,Eth Fort, Guillames with 15 ias jewel

    Merc is pretty much the only part that has been spent alot on.....Rest of the stuff is self found or cheap.

    Crown of Thieves really doesnt do anything for the merc based gf barb while IK has a few good mods to back it up such as MF and warcrys.

    Re: My gold horker on the paper.

    My hork barb started doing Hell council a few days ago after getting equipment ready for it. It's currently using:

    IK helm with 2 Lems
    Wealth runeword in a Mageplate (keeping those stats reqs low to get more hps)
    2x Ali baba's with 2 Lems in each
    Goldwrap
    Chance guards
    2x Dwarf stars
    Rare boots 21% MF and 71% Gold
    +1 Baba skill and 31% Gold amulet (gambling to find better)
    Gheed and some +Gold grand charms, + an Edge runeword in the stash to use when gambling.

    Merc is currently using:
    Wealth in a Great Hauberk
    Crown of Thieves 98% Gold (Fal rune in it atm because of the str req on Bonehew, gonna change it to Lem now as he's lvl 90 and don't need that str boost anymore)
    Bonehew with 1x38% ED/15% IAS and 1x31% ED jewels

    Total +Gold is at 2417 at the moment including the +Gold from the merc.

    It's working verly well on council in Hell... Gotta use a tp scroll once in a while to prevent the merc to die from lightning enchanted council members (remember to hork dead bodies asap if you see lightning enchants, cause if you need to scroll, the corpses disappear like a mofo when going to town for some reason), but I'm really looking for a great weapon for the merc. The kill speed with the Bonehew is ok'ish, doesn't take ages to kill stuff, and the bone spear and poison takes care of the PI's, albeit slooooow.

    What I'm looking at at the moment is the Destruction runeword. I wan't something with good elemental damage that can take care of those PI's, and great physical damage for the rest. Anyone got some experience with the destruction runeword for this purpose, and/or can recommend some weapons that gets the job done fast no matter enchants/immunities?

    Edit: Forgot to mention that I'm trying to avoid anything that can make corpses go poof, like cold damage.

    Re: My gold horker on the paper.

    Make a EBOTD GPA if you are willing to spend that much on a weapon and use "The Gavel of pain" on switch for amp charges but if im honest just continue the run and dont bother killing anything PI because you could of started another run and killed the entire council by the time that one guy is dead.

    Time is money, Well gold but you get the idea.

    Re: My gold horker on the paper.

    I'd agree, don't bother too much with Phy Immunes, the idea is easy gold fast :)

    For a merc weapon I'm going to repeat myself again :D and suggest an Obedience if you're ladder. Dirt cheap and apart from the occasional corpse shatter / no hork issue it's just about perfect for this.

    Either that or a nice eBOTD and a guillaumes face helm for some CB.

    If i get PI's or conviction i just start again - not going to waste time proving i could do it :D

    Re: My gold horker on the paper.

    I can't be bothered with trusting merc's pea-brained AI to do the dirty work, so I hopped on a grief/rhyme, put some pts berserk/warcry and took the matter in my own hands lol.
