Patriarch IndianaBones and the Temple of Baal

Finally.. my 3rd hell ever character made through it ! 1st was a barbarian - with a poor gear and no combat skills. He couldn't even cope with simplest of Fallen. 2nd - a sorceress. Meteorb. No tele or SF. She stuck at hell Ancients. IndianaBones was better. He made through the whole adventure. And he is back.

I haven't finished the game at 100% - there's a small unexplored part of WSK lvl 3 (there spawned a terrible, undefeatable bosspack so I skipped it) and Moo Moo Farm (cows were too strong - portal from Tyrael led me straight into a strong boss pack).

The training was hard. I managed to get some money for a lowly wand with +1 RS. No cool clothes. No armor. Not even a shield. Gradually, my skills were honing. Even now, I don't have best in slot gear. And my wand is a merely a magical one. You can buy it in shop. You can't however buy my skills and swag. Lvl 31 RS + SM + CG bitchez ! 14,000+ life on CG ! He's pretty much immortal. Thick as a brick.

The Baal fight was easy. Ancients were a bit harder but still, I wasn't even scratched. Hell, I am fine except that flu caught somewhere on that damn Arreat ! I had to pee in these ice caves... Took a lot of Abominable furs. Nice blankets. And swaggy toilet paper.

I am rich. I can buy everything. I really do have Gheed's Fortune. In inv and in GoMule's bank. I am retired now. With these ~7 millions I am going to rent some hot Rogues.

No Cain Screen - I had to figure out how to do printscreen on this laptop. It doesn't have this as a separate button. And Polish edition has a different font.

Now, I am going to enjoy the last hours of my holiday trip. Killed Baal and pat'ted my necro in a sleepless night.

The battle with hell P8 Baal lasted about 18 minutes. I was reading women mag and recasting decrepify every few secs. :) Not even single skeleton died ! I wasn't even scrathed.

Anything more I should add ;) ?

Edit: Untwinked and 100% P8 ;) And haven't got Arm of King Leoric :( Still, I was a unmovable, undefeatable moving wall of blades and bones. ;)

Holy crap redtang I really dig this guy. I love your gear. Spectacular for untwinked, definitely some really stylish stuff there. Finishing at 90 as well is definitely neat. P8 all the way for a summoner is cool. I'm really glad to see this write up after hearing you talk about it so much, it's cool to see exactly what you've been working on. It definitely seems like a labor of love for a first character, way better than I expected. Make something else!! I wanna see it!

Edit: indianabones is an awesome name.

Big congrats, sounds like a lot of fun.

IndianaBones's Bone, very nice!

P8 all the way with an untwinked char requires patience, well done!

So this tale came to an end. Congrats!

Judging by your gear, you really worked for that. Nice. Untwinked P8 is really impressive as well!

Thanks everybody ! I might do a Sorceress, a bit harder char (no minions to tank) but not now. @Pb_pal - I actually cheated with that tiara. I was fiddling with Charsi to get decent mods on it. That was my ONLY imbuement to be honest. Also, I haven't used 1 free socket. Should socket it with PTopaz for extra MF.

I stopped picking up basically everything except gold. I was picking up ammies because I wanted to get more than +1 to necro skills. I would cover up that +33 to cold resistance or even leave it alone because +skills are more important on this build.

The gear is really impressive as I got overall +10 or +11 to summoning alone (counting +all skills). If I got another +1, I might break the 400 dmg wall on skeletons with Skill Shrine (+2 to all skills). With bonus from shrine, my golem's HP was about 16000 ! Can immortality be measured? If no, I will gladly send my CG to Sevres (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Bureau_of_Weights_and_Measures) ;)

Edit: I have sorted items I have got during my holidays. Now I have 400 items (S/Us) in treasures. Few completed sets (unfortunately, normal only).

Most notable: a perfect MF Nagelring (the one I was wearing), ethreal Hellslayer (146-871 dmg !), 2 items out of IK set, Demonhorn's Edge, Trang-Oul Wings and Scales, Titan's Revenge, Vipermagi and the items that my merc has ;)
