Salvo I'm confused, just how far along are you?

I made a lot of progress, reporting before facing Duriel. Bought the weaken wand, what additional preparation I need to make?

The Inner Cloister & character level 16 suggest you are still in act 1, but being able to buy a wand & your listed waypoints (or is the 18 = 6 wp x 3 modifer?) does put you ready for Duriel. Do you mean Andariel? If so, the wand won't be of much help & you'll definately need antidote potions.

Sint Nikolaas: Nice job on getting to NM. I considered making my assassin ranged, but I was lured by the 3 point modifier & at the time I didn't think anyone would get to NM.

DEEDS!!!

Damn Duriel! before i entered his lair I should have known it is not necesary to clear the whole tomb but I did it and wounded a bit from unravellers ranged attack. Against I used battle cry instead of the weaken wand that wasn't enough, my merc was the first victim and I don't have any TP scroll left... :duh: Enduro failed to endure Duriel's rapid attack :cry:

@Rizzo: You mentioned earlier in this thread that if we didn't get past Act II, we could have two more chances. I've used one mulligan, and said I wouldn't use my other. Would the offer of another one still be on the table? I would like to give it a try again. Let me know.

I got down to 73 life collecting all of Kalim's parts & finally leveled up so I could take on the Council which was slow going since I had to lure them out one at a time. Next time, I'll level to 30 then try Mephisto.

"death is our business, and business is going well"

since i reached level 24 things are going a lot smoother.

a nasty boss-pack? no problem.

1. dim vision
2. attract on a minion
3. stabby stabby in their backs :)

in comparison to duriel, mephisto was a piece of cake. golem in his face .... decrept above the head ... and dagger

in his back. it was a swift an mercyful death for the lord of hate. no chicken run this time! and because of the

fact, that he didn't suffer to long there were some grateful drops:

I was too worried about Mephisto & Diablo, they concentrated mostly on my shadow letting me kick. When she got low on life, I retreated, recast, & kicked again. Act 5 hasn't been too bad either, until I ran into Blood Lords (not sure about the name) using frenzy, got careless & took a few hits. However, I managed to level up just before finding the Ancient's waypoint so I thought that would be a good place to take a break.

Do the Ancients (in normal) do any kind of elemental damage? I was hoping to use Burst of Speed instead of Fade when going against them.

newco: Nice job! I wasn't brave enough to try Mephisto until I reached level 30.

Congrats on making it thus far Sint :thumbsup:

duriel is down, but i am not sure if i am still a melee-mancer (@rizzo: your call !?). not a fight to be proud of . running in circles like a chicken, drinking blue pots, casting golem-IM-golem-IM ...., while Kyoko was snipeing at the bug. compared to salvo or mwille not very melee-like.
Sometimes we all have to rely on our minions to help out. Imho you be still melee.

Congratz on the awesome feat of taking a melee'er so far. :thumbsup:

Everyone else: I'm happy you're still alive. Once you level up some, killing speeds up alot, and it gets less tedious. Happy hunting all!

Well my game has stalled a bit.
I have close to no health in the arcane sanctuary. Almost a full bar until next level and no way to kill those light towers without getting hurt. This is gonna take some time.

Well, the Ancients went down pretty easily. I took out the weak link (Madawc) first, then ganged up with my shadow on the other two. Since their exp. boost leveled me, I don't know for sure how far down they took my life, but I'm guessing it was somewhere between 1/2 & 3/4. Then I lucked out on my experience level when going against Baal's minions. I leveled up with only Lister & 2 others alive so I got to tackle Baal with full life. It was a good thing too, since I was overconfident after Mephisto & Diablo being easy. Baal kept switching over to me instead of hitting my shadow, but in the end he went down leaving me with 173/550 life. I used some (14 I think) stat points to get my life up to 254 & ran a couple of areas at /players8 to level up. Then I went on to NM where I finally got my demonhide boots & went back to normal to get them imbued.

I'm looking forward to seeing Andariel again (with any luck).

DEEDS:scratch:

Was fighting diablo on players/8 with around 50 life left. Didn't care to lvl up because everything was going fine: bear in his face vulcano under his butt Suddenly I got hit by his lightning attack, tried to run for my life but it was too late.

Good luck to all,and a big thanks to Rizzo for hosting this tournament!:flowers:

I got careless in the room outside of Andy's & lost a lot of life, which forced me to go back through the Cats to level up. When I came back for her, she once again focused on my shadow so I could kick. It took a lot longer to kill her due to the /players5 setting I was using. I still don't have anything with Crushing Blow since I can't do my usual & craft blood gloves (darn life steal).
