Guardian Diamond completed hell yesterday. Named after Shine On You Crazy Diamond. Normal was done on players 3 as a bowazon heavily twinked about 2 or 3 weeks ago. Started her mainly to get the normal socket quest for my lightning sorc because I wanted to 'Ist' her Tal's Orb. After finding a pair of eth Titans and two Griffons in the Pits I decided to continue on with her. I respec'd for lightning and demolished NM with the eth titans. Hell was done on players 8 from act 2 onwards, which really was nothing impressive because I was using full end-game gear basically. Hell Nihlathak was pretty sketchy though. I did come a little too close to one of the corpses and was almost one-shot. So I tip-toed around the left side of his altar and killed him from off-screen using the split LF bolts coming from hitting minions that he spawned (if that makes sense). Ancients took awhile as I ran low on javelins to throw. But I managed to complete them without being hit. She finished her journey at level 87, very close to lvl88. One question I have though. There may not be a definitive answer but I was wondering if anyone who plays javazons here thinks it is worthwhile to get the level 17 valk. I have the leftover skill points to get it right now if I want to, but I'm just not sure I need to, given my merc is so strong.
