    Rixot's Keen

    I'm making my first Kicker Sin going off the uber guide that's stickied on this forum. Anyway, to my surprise the first thing to drop in act one was this Sword: Rixot's Keen

    It has 25 CB on it and is doing me great up through act 2 of Normal. I was wondering if anyone actually keeps one of these on mule to trade, and what it's worth because it has been a wonderful weapon to start with!

    Also, what would you guys recommend as the next step up for a kicksin?

    The unique hand axe would be a nice and thematic upgrade lol

    edit:

    +60-70% Enhanced Damage (varies)
    20% Chance of Crushing Blow
    50% Chance of Open Wounds*
    +8 To Strength

    only 20% cb heh

    When I used to collect items (and I mean everything), that was one of the rarest I had found. You will probably have a hard time locating it in trade since it's so low people rarely save it.

    But for a level 2 sword (i think it was), it's quite helpful.

    Normally I just do the grush thing, but if you're goin straight through (untwinked or not) you're still pretty low to really make use of twinked gear. I would recommend the stormlash over last wish, and I've used both extensively. Only reason I bothered with the LW was once I made it, hard to throw away a 6 hr sword ;)

    As for the monk, I'd drop the investment in venom and go for traps and synergies. With the speed of kicks, even at .4 duration you won't be applying poison each kick. Synergized traps will provide better support damage, and if you can throw an infinity on your merc for general pvm, you'll be as efficient if not more than a pure trap.

    Update: Found some bloodfists and twitchthroe or whatever along the way. Equipped them both. Just got to Meph on Normal. Character is lvl 24. Meph went down in about 15 seconds or less from dragon talon kicks alone. Seems this starter gear is very good for a new char. :thumbup:

    Grats on the finds. Those three items could easily carry you to Matriarch on a kicker/trapper.

    Thanks! BTW I did not know that. This is my first kicker! It is though pretty rare for me to actually find the items my character can use in normal though.

    I always prefured the blood cresent as a starting weapon. Very fast weapon with awsome LL and some resists. Kicks do nasty dmg in the beginning so im not too worried about CB at the very start. Manald heals are always dropping so im not worried about ML.

    Other nice (and cheap!) starting weapons are Crushflange (33%CB) and steel rw (ias, ar, OW, mana after each kill).

    My first char this ladder was a kicksin, finding a crushflange off some unique in the tower (a1) was just godly. She was still wearing it when she dropped the bucket on her third or fourth nm countess run at lvl 40ish.

    Steel is a brilliant RW. My favorite starter rw :)
