Yes it would be wonderful if you could upgrade an infrequently favorable craft roll and the bummer about the elite spears like Mancatcher is that they don't show up till mid-Hell.
Yeah. Ghost Spears (War Pikes too, but WSM 20 is less than ideal) can be shopped in A2 Hell, so that's my main plan of attack for getting a consistent source of elite spears if I haven't had some drop by then. I mean, 2.3% chance of elite upgrade is not exactly amazing, but at least it's something.Yes it would be wonderful if you could upgrade an infrequently favorable craft roll and the bummer about the elite spears like Mancatcher is that they don't show up till mid-Hell.
He is using a Blood Axe, yes. All of his and his mercs equipment (except a Sigon's shield on switch for buffing) is crafted now. Blood Axes are awesome! Good preset mods, so you don't have to burn too many supplies trying to get a good one. I'll make sure to get a read-out/screenie of his weapon in the next update, as he quite likes it.@Pb_pal - Great job, that situation looked quite hairy! Is Gort using a crafted blood ax? I just crafted an amazing destroyer ax on a little side project I'm working on while I wait for another interesting tournament to start up. I just can't seem to get any desire to go any further with my trio in this tournament at the moment.
That's wonderful news about your new tournament idea. I look forward to it, as I've really enjoyed your most recent two.In terms of future tournaments, I've got one in the works right now! I'll be posting a preliminary thread soon (as early as tomorrow) to see if there is interest.
Do it! I seriously doubt anyone would object to the end date thing. I had forgotten there was even one put in there. Sounds like a cool team, glad to have some company in here.I've been going back and forth over the last couple of weeks about joining in. I decided (unless there are objections over the "end date") to go ahead and go for it. My plan is to play my old Three Way Dance team I never finished: Bone Mage, LF/PJ Zon and Weathergirl sorc.
Will start off with the necromancer and should have an update in for him around the weekend.
If there's one thing Sheela taught me, it's that staying in the rare tier is very very viable. With 3 chars running there were always plenty of rares dropping, so you can amass some pretty good gear (even while maintaining reasonable MF levels!). Another bonus is that you can upgrade them, so if you find killer javs straight away, you might be set for your weapon for the duration. Sheela's weapon she died with came from Act 2 normal!Sorry to hear about Sheela's demise. That's a tough break there. Interesting choice with Tao staying all magic gear. I imagine that will help out a bunch with saving space, but really, it just means you leave more space open to hold on to other stuff. It's never enough.
I know my Zon will probably be staying in the rare tier, mostly due to no runewords for javelins and only 2 hard to find uniques. I can craft safety javelins, but I'll probably wait on that until I see what kind of set items I get. With her overpowered LF, it may not matter either way.
