The Plains of Despair indeed Allow me to share this online conversation I had with my friend concerning my gaming session last night: The MaverickPoet: ok, so Im cruising through hell, gaining a level every half hour, its totally a breeze, right? Deus Excalibur: yup The MaverickPoet: Im playing act 4 with 6 other people in a game, no trouble The MaverickPoet: then I get to the Plains of Despair. The MaverickPoet: Im running around, casting Amp Damage as always, when out of nowhere, BAM dead The MaverickPoet: Burning Souls Deus Excalibur: lol The MaverickPoet: so I go to retrieve my corpse The MaverickPoet: BAM dead The MaverickPoet: Burning Souls kill naked chars in one hit Deus Excalibur: did you even see the lightning? Deus Excalibur: or the enemies? The MaverickPoet: lol, yeah, but about 5 streams at the same time Deus Excalibur: lol The MaverickPoet: so other people start coming to the plains of despair The MaverickPoet: BAM dead BAM dead BAM dead Deus Excalibur: this is why i got bone spirit, i just spray in random directions and hope to hit them The MaverickPoet: literally, every person in the game died in the plains of despair and no one could retrieve their bodies The MaverickPoet: wont help, trust me, wait till you get there, Ill explain in a sec The MaverickPoet: I FINALLY get mine by spamming dim vision everywhere and running back and forth consuming full rejuvs The MaverickPoet: so I get my corpse and gear, go back to act 1 to raise an army while everyone is still dying trying to get their corpses Deus Excalibur: lol The MaverickPoet: so I get my army, revives and everything, and come in like [CENSORED] prince arthur leading us to victory Deus Excalibur: onward to victory! The MaverickPoet: everyone gets their corpses, and we continue to advance into the Plains of Despair, destroying Burning Souls The MaverickPoet: until, BAM The MaverickPoet: dead again Deus Excalibur: oh mang The MaverickPoet: as soon as I died, everyone fell afterwards insanely fast, my spamming of +level 20 dim vision was all that was keeping everyone alive The MaverickPoet: so I try to get my corpse again The MaverickPoet: push forward, try again, fail, push forward, try again, fail, etc. The MaverickPoet: long story short The MaverickPoet: I have no more full rejuvs, and my over 1 million gold supply is completely depleted, I cant even rehire my merc Deus Excalibur: damn The MaverickPoet: by this time all the other 6 players had given up and left in frustration The MaverickPoet: not me though The MaverickPoet: I rejoined the game so my corpse spawned in town (I knew I could do this earlier, I was just too stubborn) The MaverickPoet: I went and reraised my army, collecting objects to sell back at town and eventually got my merc and all my skellies The MaverickPoet: then I went to the arcane sanctuary and got a bunch of kicka** revives The MaverickPoet: I went back to the Plains of Despair and spammed dim vision everywhere, being as safe as possible The MaverickPoet: it was really really slow going at first, but I swore to myself it would be a complete genocide and I would clear the entire level Deus Excalibur: haha The MaverickPoet: seriousely, I killed Izual without even attempting too, he was NOTHING compared to a single burning soul, they were so much of a bigger threat The MaverickPoet: after over 2 hours of playing that single area I finally killed them all though Deus Excalibur: nice The MaverickPoet: the entire level, double checked, was completely clear of enemies The MaverickPoet: [CENSORED] 6 other quitters, big babys The MaverickPoet: well, it was certainly a learning experience Deus Excalibur: im going to fear burning souls like the plague The MaverickPoet: before I was always like "[CENSORED] dim vision, Ive never needed that" The MaverickPoet: but luckily Ive been putting my points into it because I didnt have anything else to spend on and thats what people recommended ------------------------------------ Sorry for subjecting you to that tale, but this is just my way of saying a huge THANK YOU to the people who told me to put points into Dim Vision, because WOW did I underestimate it's importance.
