    Patriarch Devagen

    Ahoy,

    After a few tolerant sessions on the part of my MP friends, my Avenger killed Baal a few hours ago. What I mean is that Nepeta's Blizzsorc butchered him on our behalf, but, whatever...

    Not much to this boy. I twinked him like nothing on earth. At first I was trying to keep his Strength to a minimum, but the low dex I needed for max block meant I had some extra points to throw around, and I'd hit my target of 1200 HP. All the equipping/dequipping at the start of the game was getting to me, so I just punched a few into Str.

    As for Hell, not much to say. This character can tank very well indeed. Elemental attacks almost don't exist, and physical can't be dealt with. The notable fights would've been the Ancients, Lister and Baal, but Nepeta helped out with all three. His lightningsorc toasted the Ancients with the Conviction. We played to Baal with his Blizzsorc, which was incredible. I didn't see Lister's mods. Baal didn't last long either. Good thing, because I was struggling to land a hit. (I'll probably do this again solo sometime, just to prove that I can.)

    Also, his gear should change a bit. My resists are actually 105, because I twinked to 95 before I rescued Anya. I'm thinking I should change the belt to Verdungo's, String of Ears or Thundergod's. (I lean towards Tgod's, since he'll end up in Baal runs.) Then the gloves will have to change to something else: probably Laying of Hands.

    A comment on the Iron Wolf... With the gear I gave him, he is actually quite useful. Most of the time he's freezing stuff, so I'm safe, but on /players 1, he actually kills by himself, too. Also, his shiver armour gave him ~5k defense, so he was fairly survivable. It became a pain in Harrogath though: most of the Cold Immunes are unbreakable. At least I can take style points, though.

    I've had a lot of fun MPing with this guy. Everyone loves an Avenger, so expect to see more of this particular Paladin.

    Cheers,
    30-30

    Congratulations! It's wonderful to see someone using one of those poor, neglected Iron Wolves.

    My first (and only) 1.10 Guardian was an Avenger just like yours. Gratz on the accomplishment!

    Congratulations! :thumbsup:

    An avenger... Never made one. I can't think that it's fun with such a slow attack speed and no leech... But conviction is just too cool and useful in MP! And I guess blocking is much fun. :D How about gloams with 95 res?

    I have a half-finished Avenger collecting dust. With your example, maybe I should bring him out again and kick some demon arse. Congrats on the pat :clap: .

    Re: Patriarch Devagen

    Congrats!

    I love Avengers and Guardian Angel is just made for them. There is nothing quite like 95 resists! Might I suggest getting some crushing blow (probably from Gore Riders if you can make up those resists from charms) or you could go the War Traveller route....
