Ahhh, yet another satisfying battle with Hell Baal. I've finally Mat'd/Pat'd every character class, albeit between 1.09 and 1.10.

Level 83
97 STR
25 DEX
124 VIT
136 NRG
123 stat points unspent

Skelleton Mastery 34 (20)
Raise Skelleton 34 (20)
Rasie Skelleton Mage 24 (10)
Golem Mastery 20 (6)
Iron Golem 23 (9)
Corpse Explosion 17 (15)

Gear:
+3 summoning skills magic amulet
+2 summoning skills rare circlet
+3 summoning skills magic wand
Trang's Armor
+2 Necro skills rare voodoo head
Trang's Gloves
Some random rare belt (I was going to replace it with an Arachnid Mesh but I just forgot)
Treads of Cthon (happened to find them, they had FRW, end of story)
Couple rare rings for some resistances

Merc: Prayer

He started his journey back in 1.09. That's why he has extra points in Golem Mastery and Iron Golem, points in Skelletal Mages, and a prayer merc. The golem, even with nearly 6k life, is still pretty worthless (although I do make him out of whatever random junk I find on the ground). The mages actually add a reasonable ammount of damage at high levels, especially when they can stay safely at a distance.

I love my Prayer merc. Conventional wisdom tells me that I should swap him for a Might merc for MFing, but I haven't decided yet. The tradeoff - a Might merc will make my army kill faster, but the prayer merc makes my army INVINCIBLE. During today's fight with Baal (which took nearly 5 minutes with my minions doing all the heavy lifting), I lost exactly zero skelletons. I lost zero mages. My merc drank zero potions.

Anyway, he and my hammerdin will probably trade Pit duty until I decide which one I like better. That'll begin as soon as that jerk Meph drops me a Skullder's and some War Travs. Hear that Meph? Just give me my gear and I'll leave you alone.

I prefer the most +summoning skills I can get with this character. That generally isn't sets and uniques.

Congrats on the Pat :thumbsup: , and have you ever considered making a char whose name doesn't have Gohan in it ;)

Have you run w/o the prayer merc? I've heard a lot of people saying their skeleton warriors are pretty much invincible even without the Prayer aura.

You didn't use any CURSES?
Sorry, assumed a bit on those. I used Amp, Decrep, and Attract (and pre-reqs).

You should really include a Cell or a Vegeta to really play with our minds... :)

Anyway, congrats on the Patriarch!

Congratulations, Gohan. One of each class is quite an achievement. Have a :drink: at the EMB on me.
