Nightfish, any more guides? :)

Hey nightfish. I enjoy reading your not-so-cookie-cutter character guides, and im wondering, are you planning to write up any more in the future?

Well, PMs or one of my other threads might have been your friend. ;) Perhaps this thread: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=344448

I had planned to write a general guide on how to build characters but that one is too time consuming for now. University has me totally *swamped* with work and I can't casually crank out an all encompassing guide like that.

Doing them on specific characters is far easier, I could probably write some more of those, based on my guardians. But generally there seemed to be little interest in that, especially if the char was not suited for MF, so I didn't do that / won't do that.

Well i thought that you can only hold up to 5 PM's at a time, and i assumed he was full.... anyway i did mean guides on specific characters. I think that if you wrote one up there would be no complaining// the forum would appreicate it :)

You should always try PMs first. ;) While they are no longer good for extended conversations they're the place to start. Second best option is to hijack a thread. Any one of my guide threads would have been alright. The most recent one has been hijacked at least twice already :D

Well, yes, no one would be complaining and people would post that it's a good guide like they always do. But if you check the feedback thread, next to no one used my non-fishymancer guides. (iirc, been a while since I read it) I'm not sure the effort is worth it if only 2 people actually use it.

Your WW-sin thread pulled me kicking and screaming back into the game. Unfortunately after going through all of my stashes I don't have any elite claws.

Does anyone know the best places to find a suwayyah or scissors suwayyah?

And yes, I know the answer is "Anywhere/time you're not looking for one."

suwayyah can actually be dropped by regular cows too according to atma, so running the secret level (without mf...and killing the king) might be your best bet.

Figures, my highest level character just reached the Canyon of the Magi in Hell. Gotta kick him into high gear, although my waning interest in him is what caused my playing break in the first place. Then again, I also need an IKSC for a barb I've got, and I could always use tastey new items.

Back on topic: New guides would be cool, but keep up your studies NF! Uni is much more important than D2.

edit: Looks like avatars are messed again . I hope the old trick to fix it still works.

btw, for poor n00biez like myself even guides that i never build are sort of useful. I have scanned through almost all that are in the sticky at least once without intentions of building half, or third or tenth of them. It is kinda' nice to see other people's gear and skill combos, that you can in some ways incorporate in your characters. Like i am not saying i will play a ribcracker enchantress tomorrow but surely, i wont put duskdeep in the i-will-never-use-these-silly-grailers stash. The same could be sad for many of the non-cookie cutter guides out there in the forums. Just because people mostly play cookie-cutters it doesn't mean those guides are worthless.

Ah, don't get me wrong, I didn't say the guides were worthless. I just said that it's probably not worth the effort it takes to write one if all people gain from it is "oh, cool item, might use that. Just a look at the guardian thread can tell you that Darksight Helm (not duskdeep ;)) is a useful lil thing. Don't need a guide for that.

This isn't the first time I've heard of such an idea. Its the one type of guide that is wholly lacking across all forums and FAQ sites. It could be done in sections by different people. But a fair bit of work for sure.
