I know someone in real life whose name is Fich :shocked:

Anyway , nice character. *cough* Enigma *cough*


Diabloii.Net Member
Um in Crest
Um in Lidless
Jah, Ber from Enigma
Vex from Oak
Mal, Ohm, Ist from CTA

That is one seriously expensive build :shocked: I don't even want to guess how many Countess/HF runs that took to obtain. Congrats.


Diabloii.Net Site Pal
congrats on the patriach

seeing how you are eager to use your runes makes me jealous of HF rushing, upgraded lindless, magefist planned to be elite :shocked:

still i don't think i will ever do HF rushing though...


Diabloii.Net Member
Thank you everyone! Much appreciated.

@Mursilis: lol lots. Theres a few threads around with the journey; most of the runes came from HFR. Alot of effort went into the Enigma... took soooo many rushes to do it- doing them with my bro made it alot easier tho.

I managed to come out with runes left over though; vry happy about that. Just taking a week break atm. Will get back into HFR next week or the wk after... so much conerntrating involved. Whereas, with pindle/meph mf, you can just switch off & plow through runs.

@NacRuno: Yep, it does take alot of work. Though, worth it in the end- its very rewarding. Anything higher than Ber/Jah is insane to make... I don't think i'll be able to manage anything higher.

Hmmmm on the other hand, perhaps I can?

----> We worked it out to about 3/4wks for Jah + Ber (if the runs are good). How long do you guys think it would take to make Cham or Zod? There's no real use for Zod, other than to make ones self increadibly cool, but do you think it would be a good (but not overly insane) challenge?

I have holidays coming up soon (3/4+ months)... should I consider it? I don't think my brother will be willing to help though... might be too hard/long solo.

I like a good challenge now & then (like my Perfect Grail quest..which is only just beginning), but this might be over the top. I don't even know what i'd do with it..

Nice Pat psywire but hes not close to my uber hammerdin =)

Btw why dident you bother with going for LKing?
Theres no skill in doing HF rushing and its game abusement

Good luck with Baal and the goodies =)

Hope to see ya around


Diabloii.Net Member
Congrats on the pat.

You sure have crap charms compared to the rest of your gear. And is there any reason why you upgraded the lidless wall? It's a prebuff shield, correct? Why the extra defense for prebuff items?


Diabloii.Net Member
What was the point in upgrading the Lidless then sticking an Um in it when all you're using it for is to prebuff? The Um for resists is understandable if you're using the same Lidless as the primary shield on another character, but upgrading it nets you ~40 defense on (presumably) a caster that most likely doesn't have any defense boosting skills to begin with.

@Marvel: Are you implying that running around LK popping chests requires some sort of actual skill? :scratch:


Diabloii.Net Member
Kabal: not really but from HFing you know pretty much how long it will take you to get to the final goal.

and i only done alittle bit of my total rune hunting from LK, i played most place in the game to hunt after runes.


Diabloii.Net Member
@Marvel: I tried LK and it didn't work vry well for me at all..I still do them every now & then of course.

Ah you have an uber hammerdin eh? whats he use?

The upped "um" lidless was originally on Shiva. It was her main shield.

@LiquidEvil: Ahhh yep, vry crap charms lol. The best charms I have atm are prolly...

+1 Fire Skills / +45 Life GC
+5 All Resist / +14 Life SC

..I need to buy more soon.
