My (second) introduction thread

So , hi guys :)

First of all , a bit about me . Im 17 years old male , living in Lithuania. Im still studying in school now (brrr :sad2: ) . By the next year , hopefully, ill be studying programming in university. I also love playing chess .

On diablo 2 side , i started playing it as soon as it hit the shelves . I didnt like it first , came back few years later. By then 1.09 patch was already out. Sadly , something happened to my D2 cd , so , and not wanting to waste more money (we're pretty poor here in Lithuania) i got pirate version :undecided: I couldnt play on , but i could play on private servers. I did that , and i became quite know there. Necromancers by those times were considered to be "curse-*B!tches" , nothing else. So , i created one with main purpose - dueling. I became quite known as a good dueler , as i managed to beat sorcs and amazons. People usually thought about me as some random noob and would get very surprised when i beat them. I even got called hacker/cheater , heh :)
Then , after some time i quit again , and came back when v1.10 came out. I was very pleased with the new patch and started playing on single player , testing builds mostly. And , while i was having fun bashing my way through act 3 normal , i thought : Hey , but this is much more fun that usualy **** i have to do on private servers (read : Then i started searching for some forum where i would find like-minded people , and i stumbled upon this site :)

After this , i decided to try get hardcore septavirate (spelling?). From then , all my characters where hardcore .I also set some additional rules for me : no redoing areas (read : no mfing, leveling) and also the character build should be rare/exotic.
My first guardian came from some kind of team tournament. He was a necromancer with skills in both summoning and damage skills.
My second guardian was a druid , following excellent Alter ego's guide. I can say that he was quite weak , but i still managed to do it. When i made a thread about it quite some people where surprised about my equipment list :

After that , i started an assassin. I wanted to try martial arts only build , so i did that. It was very interesting character to play , with no crowd control at all and all usual assassin goodies like burst of speed, etc. She got killed in hell act 2 and i was surprised i got that far .
Some time later i decided to do another attempt with same build , but this time i allowed to use shadow skills. This time i got stuck on ancients . I tried to beat them for about a month , most of that time spent getting gold to ressurect merc.I tried using life tap , doing all kinds of tricks. Best i could do was getting one of them (do not remember which) to about 2/3 hp. My merc would die after one WW from talic (?). To sum it up, nothing helped and i came to a painful conclusion that i couldnt beat them if i played untwinked. Off course , all my items were downright ****** , like my weapon. It was regular assassins claw that you can find in normal just with +1 to assassins skills.
So i set for one last try and Fireworks died.

While it might sound my attempts were unsuccesful it isnt that way. I had LOADS of fun while playing these two characters. You cant imagine how its like when you play pheonix-strike based character. You have 3 viable means of attack , decent crowd control , what more can you ask for? And all of those effects ... i doubt theres another character that can create such mayhem :) I couldnt see how many charges i have , heck , i even couldnt see what im attacking !

And now , i have two new characters, one is amazon who will use freezing and immolation arrows to kill stuff, other is a sorc . This one will probably be most "cookie-cutterish" build of all i've made , using frozen orb and hydras to kill opposition. Both characters are in normal act 5.

So , im finally back to d2 now :yay: Any good tournaments going ?
I suppose im quite rusty after two years of not playing but still , its all about fun , right ? :smiley: Also , as my version of d2 is pirate i can only use v1.10 , that meaning FE and other nasty stuff. But whatever, d2 should be pretty cheap by now

P.s sorry for grammar mistakes , english isnt my native language.
