Patriarch Kshathra

Well, as this seems to be the custom around here, I guess I'll post the details. Finished hell yesterday with Kshathra, at level 85. Hell was, for the most part, easier then I expected, probably because of the build. A few deaths along the way, mainly due to stupidity. Other than some annoying burning dead archer boss packs in act two, and getting Lam Esen's Tome, there were no major problems.

No huge finds along the way, hellforge gave me a hel (sadly one of the better drops I've gotten from that), found two elite uniques, Horizon's Tornado from a random unique in act four, and a Doombringer from pindle (did thousands of pindle runs in .09 and never found anything approaching that, then go in there after getting anya just because he's there and get that).

Got off easy with gloams, only ran into them in level two of the wsk, and even then no large packs. Baal and his minions went down easily, although lister and his pack were annoying (he spawned extra fast). Baal only used his mana burn attack twice, so that fight went down without a hitch. Got a Chaos Armor for my troubles, oddly the only unique or set I got in hell from an act boss.

Build is your average Hammerdin, as I needed a char I could play untwinked and mf with.

One class down, six to go. Will probably work on existing chars for the time being, perhaps start some form of javazon. Will most likely being playing mainly cookie cutter builds for the time being, until I can get a decent item base to equip more variant/underpowered builds.
ah, an unwinked pat. there one of the best u can get (well, any HC guardian is always better). well done! now enjoy the 100's of meph or baal runs youll be doing!
