    Newb to the Forums

    Heya all,

    I am Todesritter, aka Chris, I live in Portland OR and have been playing D2 off and on for years (never really getting beyond nightmare Act 3 due to getting bored with the build). I have started playing it a lot more recently due to getting a nice computer for my birthday and having only this game to play on it for a while. A friend of mine showed me this site long ago and I have always used it as a resource.

    My previous gaming experience includes, MajorMUD, D1, TONS of PSX/PS2 games, D2X, and EQ for 3 or so years. I am a vetern of RPGs and love chating about them. Well I hope to be recived happily and if anyone knows me from Karana Server in EQ, I went by Wraithan, Hijuin, Skyth, and several other names.

    ~Wraith

    Wow active forums lol, used to my guilds forums in EQ, not used to responces within 10 mins lol.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. I play a Skelymancer main I can't seem to do that well in Hell on P8 though, just got there, lvl 64 and mediocre gear (+4 to summons, +1 to all skills, rest is MF) I haven't been working on CE that hard because I wanted to get a GM and get a couple other curses and a little SR. Would CE make it a lot easier, if so, should I go back and do Meph runs for a while and lvl it up since it is only lvl 3.

    ~Todesritter (sorry bout the Wraith at the bottom of my first post, I am very used to that name lol)

    Welcome!

    Level 64 is really low for Hell . . . I'd head back to NM and level up. A lot. Like 10 more levels at least. :D

    Welcome to the forums Todesritter! Here is a complimentary bite on the shin. *chomp* The worst is yet to come

    I also used to be heavy into EQ. Never played on the Karana server though, and my highest char was lvl 45 because like you and D2 I guess, I always got tired of a char. BTW, a bit OT, but what was your highest and/or favourite char?

    Welcom to the SPF!

    Also, if someone takes Solo's job, watch your shins.

    EDIT: Guess I was a little late...

    CrazyChihuahua: In EQ I played a lvl 67 Monk as my main, 65 Druid and 65 Beastlord when I got sick of the monk. I used to use my dads account and a friends accounts and I could quad box at his house... playing in OoW with 4 toons was fun.

    Oooo another skellie :D
    Lvl 64 is low for him and especially on players 8 with a lvl 3 CE. As you said go and run NM Mephie for a bit. He may drop you some items you want and make it better for you. Good luck with him.

    Oh and welcome to the Forums :)

    Welcome to the forums..

    As Seige said your lvl is too low..If you have very good gear it's doable but much better to wait until you're lvl 75ish before entering Hell.. Baal running is always a good place to get experience but try running Mephisto first as he is much easier/faster and can net you some good stuff (Trangs armour, Homonculus, Suicide Branch etc). Secondly a Skellymancer isn't really geared towards playing on players 8 in Hell...you can do it but it's gonna be slow going and again you need good gear... If you switch down to players 1 your Corpse Explosion will become immensely powerful, especially if you get a couple of extra points in it. I would definitely recommend players 1 for your first time through Hell and then adjust afterwards. Good luck with your skellymancer they are awesome characters.

    Oohh and it seems that Diablo II totally owns Everquest:)

    Yokoso (welcome ^-^)!

    I too love playstation RPGs, and have a vast experience with them. I will never forget my good times with FF7, Xenogears and Chrono Cross (my favorites), and the others. Hope you have a long stay here (once I heard that this forums are a trap and nobody can leave... But I never tried). Matta, ne.

    Vargas kun :confused:

    Welcome to the SPF Todesritter! This is a great community, so enjoy your stay. Make sure to stop by the EMB for a beer/drink/shot (whatever suits your fancy). Just tell the bartender to add it to my tab :p.

    Oh, and I remember the good ole' PS RPG's. If the Diablo series is my addicition on the PC, FF pwned the console systems. FF7 on PS is my absolute favorite console RPG of all-time.

    Anyways, Cheers!!

    Square in general pwned PS console gaming for me, Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, and well my favorite the FF series (except FFXI which was garbage... got to lvl 40 in the free month, that is including a little tradeskill time to get money, so I had almost all the best gear of my lvl with my Elvaan Monk) And to repeat above I have a bad habbit of saying hell when I mean act 4... I am NM Act 4 and /p8 is a pain.
