    Patriarch Lord_Soth

    Hi all! My name is James and I've been reading this forum for about a month now. This is my first post. I've learned alot from all of you, and I must say that you all are a very pleasant group of people.


    The quest is over! Today I bested the Ancients and Baal in Hell, thus achieving my first Patriarch in patch 1.10. I finished the entire game alone and untwinked (I only used items that this character found himself). I used Nightfish’s Fishymancer 2.0 guide almost verbatim, with a few changes. First, I got Corpse Explosion to level 3 early in my career since I planned to just use “/players 1†throughout the whole game. Second, once I got maxxed Raise Skeleton and Skeleton Mastery, I started putting points into Bone Spirit as an experiment, and I’m very glad I did as it was VERY useful vs. Physical Immunes, Hell Diablo, the Hell Ancients, and Hell Baal. I obtained many of my final items by killing Nightmare Mephisto about 50 times. Not bad for only having 24% Magic Find.

    The most difficult battles for me were against Hell Diablo and the Hell Ancients. Even though I put 2 points into Summon Resist, Diablo was able to kill my entire army including my Mercenary over and over very quickly. I resorted to repeatedly casting Decrepify, Clay Golem, and Bone Spirit until he was finally slain. The whole process took about half an hour. Against the Ancients, I followed Nightfish’s advice and Revived a few Gorebellies and repeatedly cast Decrepify and Bone Spirit. I used about 10 Full Rejuvenation potions.

    Without further ado, I present to you Patriarch Lord_Soth:

    Level 81 Necromancer

    Stat Points (Without Items/With Items)

    Strength 75 / 75
    Dexterity 80 / **
    Vitality 270 / 270
    Energy 70 / 94
    Life 735 / 822
    Mana 275 / 437

    Skills:

    Amplify Damage 4
    All other curses 1
    Raise Skeleton 20
    Skeletal Mastery 20
    Clay Golem 1
    Summon Resist 2
    Revive 9
    Corpse Explosion 10
    Bone Spirit 11
    All prerequisites 1

    Items:

    Full Helm with Runeword “Loreâ€
    Prismatic Amulet of Skill (+19 all resistances)
    Socketed Gothic Plate with Ral Ort Tal Thul
    Frostburn Gauntlets
    Rare Ring with 20% Fire Resist, 25% Poison Resist
    Scintillating Ring of the Leech (+12 all resistances)
    String of Ears
    Rare Boots with 30% Faster Run/Walk, 23% Lightning Resist, 24% Magic Find

    Weapon Switch 1: Necromancer’s Bone Wand (+2 all Necromancer skills) and Jeweler’s Tower Shield with 3 Perfect Diamonds

    Weapon Switch 2: Unraveller’s Head with +2 Bone Spirit and Wand with +3 Bone Spirit

    Mercenary: Level 80 Act 2 Offensive (Might Aura) outfitted with Tal Rasha’s Horadric Crest, Blackleach Blade, Rattecage

    Future Plans:

    I’ll probably use this character to do more MF runs and twink a Hammerdin and a Sorceress of some sort. I was able to get an Occulus and Tal Rasha’s amulet during my Mephisto runs, so I know a powerful Sorceress is possible.

    I want to thank everyone in the Single Player Forum, especially Nightfish. I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish this feat without you.

    Greetings, Artemis, and welcome to our forums. Please remember to read the FAQs and behave in front of our elite uniques (you don't happen to be an elite unique yourself, do you?).

    Congratulations on your Patriarch. It's always a fine achievement to get your first. With a name like Artemis, I would have thought you would prefer Amazons, though. :D

    Anyway, feel free to drop by the local forum bar, the EMB, for a quiet drink or two - the first one's on me.

    Enjoy your time here.

    Hiya Art,

    welcome to the Forum and congrats on the Pat. That's truly a powerful and fun build. If you're still undecided on the type of your sorc I'd recommend a VegaSorc. Truly fun!

    'Grats on the Pat'. For a second character for more efficient MFing, if you're looking for twinks and not elite uniques, I'd suggest a sorc. If you're going for Tyraels and Grizzy items, I'd suggest the hammerdin. Enjoy the stay.

    Welcome and enjoy your stay with us :D

    I will suggest you play CL/FO sorc as I am currently playing 1...
    The only bad thing is it is quite item depended.

    But I know that MeteOrb Sorc is much more stronger!

    But the way, I dont feel like to use oculus as the teleport is silly that might cost you death, especialy you face those archer...
