    Hey guys !

    Just realized we are ten days away - slightly less now - from RFL round 1.

    It is the time when my Sorc decided to drop a second Java lifer - maybe the passive and magic skillers will be worth using too ? So i'm wondering: is a lvl 1 to hell cows rush is possible in those 10 days ?

    Of course, she will be twincked. Of course, it will be my first Zon ever. Of course, such a goal will give her a special place in my D2 memories. So...let's go ?

    Let aside the LK runs, the Untwinked challenger, the so close to Matriarch BabySorc, the Hammerdin a Jah from Eni.

    Let it be. Let her be. All hail Noobazon !

    This thread will follow her journey to Bells regularly, on a day to day or so basis.

    First rendez-vous this evening/tonight !

    First day, Noobazon hit lvl 20 and got the cube.No skill use for now, only normal attack !

    Noobazon started fresh her session. She has 4 java skillers awaiting, two passive ones, and titan/tgod or razortail, so she is in a hurry to hit lvl 69 (one java skiller has huge life bonus) !
    [​IMG]

    Leveling wasn't handled properly, fought Andy when was lvl 17 already. Stuff is Isenhart full set, artic gloves and belt (full armor set parts at start), and Vidala boots (hsarus ones at start). For jewelry, uses a triple Cathan combo for 20 str and 12life leech stats.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    At the beginning of act 2, as there was enough strength and the possibility of a new weapon, Noobazon switched to Griswold sword with Sigon full set. Cathan's jewelry is kept, and will be for some time.

    [​IMG]

    She went directly to Radament for the extra skill point
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Then headed to the Halls of the deads to get the cube. On her way a rare amu drop - crap.
    [​IMG]

    Got the cube when she was at lvl 20, and stopped her first session after about two hours and a half.

    Skillwise, she gets one point on each passive, and starts to fill Charged Strike before Lightning Fury - classical way i guess !

    See you on next update !

    Act 2 completed in p3 at lvl 23, in slightly more than an hour. Pushed gaming time in order to complete this lvl 24. Heading to Meph !

    Horadric staff quest:

    Snakes dropped me a javelin, i left the Griswold sword after Viper temple:

    Literally just rocked up in the Rogue Encampment and dumped her bags by the fire.

    Another hour, and A4 has been cleant, Shenk died too ! Skillwise, only pumped CS, 7 points kept to up CS and LF on levels 30-36. For the story, it took me about 4.5 hours to get the Larzuk quest.

    Now, the pics - missed Izual screenshot, but anyway :)

    Slayer ! Now lvl 33 :) It took her about an hour and a half to rescue Anya and kill Baal.

    On the road to Anya, dropped a Manald:

    Then went to Ancient's for an easy fight:

    Still an upgrade until Titan's at lvl 42:

    It will be time to think about stuff a bit before Nightmare rush, resists are clearly bad, especially poison - and next boss is Andy.

    See you on next update !

    Nice to see your progress. Glad there are a few people here I can follow, to sate my d2 itch.

    I take it you are enjoying the character? Are you planning to use FA for the LI, or are you planning something else?

    Hey :)

    I do that kind of thread for people like you (us !), because D2 is much about stories, but there this is special because it will be my first seriously played Amazon.

    Yes i do enjoy it for now, and as you state, real challenge is coming in Hell ;)

    Well i think it will be nice using FA, and i have a -31% Wizendraw iirc - i have three muled, to be confirmed. For now i put one point in Valk just to try it, guess it would be another option !

    Thx for your post, i'll keep going that way !

    Skillwise, i will target the following build to enter hell, at lvl 75 or so:
    20 FA
    20 CS
    20 LF
    10 Passives
    7 Prerequisites
    Quests spare points in synergies, not decided if those will be in CA or lightning synergies.

    Stuffwise, will need a Skullder's ire probably, i don't remember having muled one...anyway, check my trade thread if you have one spare ! I will use the Titan's i traded as main and Wizendraw i already have for FA. For rings, a Ravenfrost for sure, and either of SoJ that i don't have, the dropped Manald or a resist all one. An (upped ?) Moser with pdiamonds for resists.

    For skill bonuses, i'll start with Shako, Mara, 3 java and 2 passive skillers with life/FRW/FHR. I'll try to trade/hope a drop of a Skullder and a SoJ for 2 all skills more, and find java-ias gloves too. Therefore for now, i'm set at +7 java/+6 passive/+4 bow, with titan's bonuses when on main attack.

    To be completed/reworked.

    I welcome everyone to contradict me here, but I feel this might be a good time to use the peace runeword. I won't use it on mine, solely because my endgame is to mf. But if you are aiming for runes, mf matters little. So the +2 skills and a LVL 15(!) valkyrie should be a good option.

    The Valkyrie will vanish if you don't have skillpoints in it (hardpoints or that one bow), but should stay for you. So +2 ama skills and +14* to Valkyrie.

    When killing large groups (e.g. cows), one other factor which has a huge impact on damage is pierce. Razortail and 1 pt pierce is what I would recommend, as that will bring you very close to 100% with the +skills you should have (+7 is enough for 100 % iirc).

    Lastly, no cold arrow synergy will probably hurt normal questing in hell a bit. But then again, maybe you have factored this in to optimize cowkilling. (For general questing I would level CA synergy more before hell, probably at the expense of LF. LF is insane enough. But that prob don't apply here...)

    For questing, FA alongside LF might be a good option. For your endgame goal, killing cows, I wouldn't bother, and go full out on LF.

    Seconded on both. I'm farming Diablo so I can get a few tokens now but I will respec my javazon from LF/FA to full LF/CS with synergies for this marathon. To be honest I don't think I will go back to FA. Nightfish must have found a joy in it that I cannot.

    I think I'll side with the fish. If the synergy for LF was any good I would get it. But at 1% per point, I would rather have a solution to LI's.

    If you plan to run only one area with no LI's (like cows), I could see the benefit. But I like my chars a bit more general, possibly as a consequence of playing on ladder before.

    Did a huge session tonight, say four hours maybe, Noobazon did Baal running in normal up to lvl 50+ - went to that point where she didn't get a full level out of a /p7 run. Then rushed Andy, straight, in /p1 not to be annoyed on the run. I guess i will run through Nightmare that way until a new Baal running session in NM, as the twink is - in my mind - dirty. Main thing i could change is that pair of gloves, 2 bows/20IAS i got in mule, to a 2 java/20IAS one, but i never had such a twink to make a character oO

    Ended the day at lvl 51+, almost endgeared. Got some mana issue, i'd like to keep the Manald, but need more resists for NM - and Hell will be pretty hard task if i don't work around that. Let's see some pics now, and see you on next update !

    Moreover, i checked the Peace runeword. I guess i will need more resistances in Hell, i may sacrifice the skill bonuses for either a Vipermagi to be balanced, socketed um can be too, or a high resistance runeword like smoke or gloom. Maybe Lionheart for stats, at the cost of def ?

    Anyway, good night from France (2:20 am here) !
