The End of a Journey - Kara is 99 Well folks... the journey to 99 is finally over. Kara, my Blizz/Fireball sorc hit 99 at approximately 10:15AM PST, this morning of August 28th. Truth be told, I never thought I could do it, I expected to die before hitting 99, but after thousands upon thousands of Baal runs I got so used to evading monsters that I hardly got hit after awhile. Add to that the awesome gear and high health of the character (although I had only about 2.2k until late into 98) and I got used to even taking Conviction+LR gloams. There were not very many runs that I rerolled because of bad spawns. It's taken me the better part of a few months, and this last month I was playing no less than 10 hours a day, some days upwards of 15. These last 2 days I played about 14 just to push through to that final goal. I'm too lazy (and tired, after all those Baals!) to do a full writeup so I'll try and keep it short. Screenshots: Level 99 Stats and Looks (very ugly!) Cold Skill Tree Fire Skill Tree Lightning Skill Tree And the gear... Helm: Nightwing's Veil (Cold Facet) Amulet: Crafted +2 sorc, resists, FCR Weapon1: Death's Fathom (Cold Facet) Shield1: Lidless Wall (PDiamond) Weapon2: 'Call to Arms' Crystal Sword Shield2: Lidless Wall (MF jewel) - for prebuffing BO Armor: 'Chains of Honor' Dusk Shroud Gloves: Magefist Belt: Arachnid Mesh Ring1: The Stone of Jordan Ring2: The Stone of Jordan Boots: Waterwalk Charms: 8x Cold Skillers - 5 'of Vita' Small charms boosting resists and life - resist charms 'of Vita' // 'of Sustenance' Merc Weapon: Upg'd Ethereal Kelpie Snare (Amn) Merc Armor: Upg'd Guardian Angel (Um) Merc Helm: Eth Andariel's Visage (Um) And there you have it folks. I think I need to get some real sleep now. Next projects? I will see, it depends on how busy I will be with real life this next year. Thanks to: tweety for inspiring the build and getting to 99 the IRC crowd for putting up with me for 10 hours a day The SPF for being here! Plenty of individuals, too many to name!
