    Notables:
    - I played on /players8 the entire game, until the Crystaline Passage in Hell. It didn't make anything significantly more dangerous, it just made everything a lot slower. I didn't do full clears, but I did kill every monster I encounted.
    - 0 MF throughout: Bonehew (Baal, Hell), Fungal GC (Great Marsh, Hell), Io/Io from Hellforge
    - 1 death, a LI/PI mana-burn, cursed Mauler pack in the Durance of Hate (+3 Mauler Champions in the group too). They put me in hit recovery and I couldn't escape. Quite a few NDE's though, but zero 'save & exit's.
    - I think my mercs parents were related; he was painfully stupid this time
    - Taunt is probably one of the most underrated skills in the game; with enough patience you can chip away at any dangerous pack of monsters. For example, I was able to escape this in the Chaos Sanctuary in Hell, using Leap Attack to get away and then drawing every minion away with Taunt (1-3 minions each time). The whole process for that group took 3 Full Rejuv's and about 45 minutes. I felt somewhat guilty pausing the game to take the screenie, but at least I didn't save and exit - or die.

    As for what's next, I have no idea.
