    You'll mess your pants when an ethereal one drops.

    @Bobbo Nice !! Congrats on the upgrades :).

    @Basicbhoy NM Countess mostly drops up to Io. So it might be hard to get a Lum from her. Then again you might luck out, or get some Io runes quickly and cube them up. Good luck !!

    In all my time, I've really glossed over shapeshifters using bows. When I did pay attention, I've heard lots about buriza and such. WWS is one of my favorite items, and I've NEVER even given a thought to using it on a Fury. Wow. Between the WWS and a Ribcracker, I'd be very torn on what my favorite items are in the game. I imagine getting CB outside of the weapon would just cause some slower boss kills, but how often does a fury worry about the boss at the end of a fun run?

    I'm currently playing a Wind druid, but I think if I find a WWS and some other pieces of melee gear, I'd use a respec to play with the bow.

    So farming those 3 Sur runes in those first 2000 LK runs was all in vein?

    Screenshot005.jpg

    Hell yeah, the wait is over, let the teleporting begin !!!

    Screenshot006.jpg

    After hitting 92 I was thinking about going back to LK again, but rerolling maps, I just remembered how much I hated them with my Paladin. So I went back to Travincal and got this one while still rerolling maps :). The funny thing is that, being in LK for so long, it took me a while to realize that this was exactly what I needed. I just went 'ah no Sur or Ber, nice HR, but it gets me nowhere'. But obviously it does.

    So I'm going to respec now, to divert some points from strength to vitality and some points from Holy Shield to Resist Fire, to increase my fire res above the 75% cap.

    I actually haven't been playing ShouldBeEasy much, as I have been mainly focusing on Grapelike lately. I guess that will change now. So let's give an overview for Grapelike as well, shall we?

    Grapelike did more Countess runs, in search for good runes and good bases. The latter didn't come initially, the former came rather fast though.

    Screenshot001.jpg

    Screenshot002.jpg

    These, and a Ko not much later. Nice start !!

    After that I rerolled maps a few times, as I still had the feeling I could improve. After a while I got a map where Treshers dropped on a regular base from the rack in lvl 5. Four white ones later, used in the cube recipe, and I had 3 with 5os and one with 2os. Nice. Now to find that Fal rune for Obedience !! I didn't get that one, but got this very nice triple drop instead:

    Screenshot003.jpg

    I could almost cube up to Obedience at this point, but a 4os Tresher dropped before that happened. So I bit the bullet, respecced to meet the str and dex req, and got myself a nice Insight Tresher.

    Screenshot004.jpg

    Performance with this weapon wasn't bad, but I must admit I had expected better. Maybe it's because a Barb already has CS from his Mastery, so the CS on Insight doesn't do that much for him, and I'm better off with an Obedience than with this low ED% Insight?

    I pushed a bit further and got to the Outer Cloister waypoint, after which I did a few Pit runs. Those were slow though, so I suspect that next time I'll continue with more Countess runs. But first things first, let's get back to ShouldBeEasy !!!

    @T72on1 - Awesome! Congrats on finally getting the Enigma! The even better news is that you can also now cube a Ber to stick in the Shako (or whatever the end-game head gear for CS) for extra damage reduction and safety :)

    Yes, definitely Shako. I was thinking about using them to cube to Ber and then make CoH for the merc, which would enable me to use Delirium on him. Ber in the Shako definitely is a good option as well.

    I did some Gripphon runs, which went very smooth. Now I think I'll go running Meph for a while, in hopes of a Shako and/or Arachnid's.

    Right, I forgot that you wouldn't have CoH yet. I think that would definitely be a better use of the first Ber . . . but that still means you're only a Sur away from being able to Ber the Shako.

    Nice progress everybody!!! Congrats on that hard fought Enigma @T72on1, and that Ko, Pul, Hel triple drop from the Countess is pretty sick.

    I am still chugging along with the Sorc, but I made a newb mistake last night. It was getting late, but I decided to do a couple Pit runs to end the night. The first few were decent, nothing good dropped, but no big deal. I got to thinking about how big of a pain level 2 used to be with cursed archers and how much my overall gameplay has improved to the point where I dont really worry too much about it anymore. I could stop there because you know whats coming next.

    On the very last run of the night, I started in on level 2 and did my usual top to right and back around clear sequence. I noticed the fallen were cursed so I knew something was lurking. After a couple Frozen Orbs to clear out some trash I ported around trying to see what was cursed. If it was skellys I was just gonna go at them, but as I got around, and as quick as I seen the Archer pack, boom. Dead. I know BO was up because I always prebuff before going in level 2, but they tore me up.

    I managed to get my corpse, so I didnt go completely ballistic, but still at this point it sucks because I am relatively slow so the XP is not stacking up fast, and it was my first death at 97. Time to get back on the horse, and I know my stubbornness is crazy about staying with FO/FB, but I just really want to go all the way with that build.

    @Animage: To be honest, progress really slowed down now in Hell difficulty, but even not upgraded WWS is still decent weapon for p1 Hell adventures...and when AD is helping out, its amazingly fast...I really am considering getting Fortitude armor and upping this weapon to find out, how truly powerfull or not this combination can be ;)

    Fantastic @T72on1, grats on Enigma! Farming that in HC is an accomplishment I'm very far away from. ;)

    @darkstarhub Sorry to hear about the death.. I know it feels crappy when at such high levels, happened to both my characters a few times even at 98. But as long as you recover the body it's really okay, so kudos on that!

    @darkstarhub - sorry to hear about the death, but glad you recovered the corpse. Keep plugging away!

    * * *

    I was out of town last week through this Monday, and then was really busy at work, so playing time was limited since my last update.

    But Quinta got some more LK runs in, with a goal of another 500 runs for 2000 LK runs total. She netted Mal #4 and Ist #3 in the first 300 runs, with this nice GC mixed in:
    LK (Shimmering GC of Balance).jpg
    Then on run #324 (#1824 overall) she picked up Sur #2 (having to dig through the gold and some potions before it revealed itself after seeing the orange flash and just *knowing* it was a high rune):
    LK (Sur #2).jpg
    I had already decided to go for Infinity first to try “running” Baal, hoping for runes to drop along the way to eventually allow Enigma. So after getting to 350 LK runs (1850 total), we Hel’ed one of her low roll eth Insight CVs, and had Infinity:
    Infinity.jpg
    She still didn’t have decent javelins or head gear, we rolled another Meph map, eventually landing one where stairs down were an immediate left turn from WP with only a short hallway mixed in. With Infinity, she could finally run him at p3 safely, and she also mixed in p5 Pindle runs.

    Within 15 runs a golden Shako dropped, and she finally had a non-eth one (which was immediately socketed for a very welcome upgrade over her 3 pTopaz mask). Within 5 minutes, she also picked up a Thunderstroke, prompting her to use her final quest reward re-spec to rebalance for higher dexterity to equip that.

    I think she may go back and forth between p7 Pindle and p3 Meph for a little while, hoping for Titan’s or a lucky rune drop. I might just settle into that routine for a tenth of this level before regearing for Baal runs. We’ll see!

    * * *

    I also got a couple 10-minute testing sessions in with Pestilence.

    Unfortunately, the average for Pit runs is closer to 3M/hr with the current map. And I still don’t think I will be able to make CS work. The XP is barely better than Pit runs (basically a wash in two 10-minute sessions), and more dangerous and frustrating. It’s also a really good map for Gripphon runs, with multiple boss packs clustered around the seals and no bosses right at the pentagram to allow easy kills for a few revives at the beginning of each run.

    Basically, the only option is 75 FCR (Spirit, arachnids, trang gloves), with Shako as the helm. I wish Gripphon had made a vid because I’d really like to see how he made it work. Apparently, 6 skillers and no +skill rings (but using a +2 skill amulet, so only -4 skills to his set up) isn’t enough.

    I want to play around a little more with curses (seeing if more use of amp damage would work better). But I will likely focus on Pit runs, possibly rerolling maps to see if faster XP is possible on a map with similar density on level 1 but more consistent 3+ boss packs on level 2. It’s much smoother and allows better MF, so the slower XP gain relative to my prior 99ers will be offset by a stronger chance to tick off one of three remaining overall grailers. :)

    Well, I haven't posted in this thread in about a year, but I figured I'd post since I am still participating in this, albeit very slowly.

    My character - a now level 94 hardcore amazon - stagnated quite a bit this year due to bad gear, so I took an extended break from leveling to get some gear. At the beginning of 93, my gear was quite terrible; I was just barely able to do pits, baal was out of the question, and I had gotten to level 91 by doing Eldritch. This started to change fairly rapidly when I rolled basically the best durance 2 map possible, so I started doing thousands of meph runs. In my last post (from February) I indicated that my gear was so poor that I didn't even have titan's. This has now changed; despite the fact that my Titan's was an extremely low roll (153/9), it was a titan's, which was a massive improvement over what I'd been using up until that point. Over the next couple of weeks I got a shako and some better charms, situating myself to do some /p8 pits. Getting about ~1m a run I was going at a decent clip, but I was still flirting with death more often than I'd liked and my gear was still pretty crappy, so I went back to meph for awhile. To be honest, it was pretty sad... until today.

    Within the last 24 hours my character has gotten a soj, a mara's and a stormshield, each of which constituted a significant gear improvement (I wouldn't generally use a soj on a javazon, but the terrible crafted ring it replaced will not be missed). My current setup is not amazing by any means, but things are looking much better:

    Helm - Um'd Shako
    Amulet - Mara's (20 all res -_-)
    Weapon - Upped Titan's (153/9 -_-)
    Shield - Pdiamond SS
    Armor - Peace in a Scarab Husk
    Gloves - 3/20s
    Rings - SoJ, Raven Frost
    Belt - Tgod's
    Boots - War Travs

    ...Plus a couple of skillers, some decent scs and an above average Gheed's.

    So I'm off Meph for awhile as he has basically nothing else to offer this character. I did a couple dozen pit runs today to close out level 93 and the difference the gear has made has been truly astounding. I will probably focus on leveling from here on out and will likely switch to the pit as I still basically have to reset baal attempts if there are too many souls in the throne room.

    Gear-wise, the biggest two improvements I can think of are CoH and Infinity, both of which require Bers. Now, this is a pretty distant prospect, since the highest rune this character had found was an um... until today.

    Screenshot019.jpg

    ...Of course, cham is a pretty crappy rune. But it's high!

    Anyway, hopefully 94-95 will take me less time than 93-94 did - based on my last post here, it took me about nine months - but I have the gear to actually put a dent in the exp total, so I imagine it will.

    Agreed @Me2NiK on the tremendous dedication to gather that gear.

    Out of curiosity, how long did it take to shop those 3/20 gloves? My zon picked up some rare 2/20 gloves early, but has little luck with only a few 10-15 power shopping sprees to look for the 3/20 upgrade. I'm thinking of burning through much/most of her ~20M gold on gambling gloves in hopes of better 2/20 rares, rather than putting in the slog to shop the 3/20s. But curious about your experience.

    Also, minor end-of -weekend update for Quinta, who is a little past 1/5 of the way to 95 mostly from Pindle, but also a really nice Andy map mixed in. I decided to run Andy until "something useful" dropped, and after more than an hour, we finally got Titan's:
    Andy (Titans).jpg
    So that definitely counted! And was immediately up'ed given the respec to equip Thunderstroke earlier.

    She's done a few p3 CS full clears and has a nice Pit map (close to Black Marsh WP and linear layout). The WSK map isn't bad either (short hallway on WSK2 and a long straight corridor on WSK3). So she will likely focus on CS and/or Baal until she picks up a couple GCs to use up her ~300 pgems. Then she will likely cycle between the Pit, CS, Baal, and stretches of Pindle to 95.

    Keep up the great progress, everyone!

    3/20 gloves aren’t too hard to shop, easily within a couple of hours if even that. At least, I’ve always had them swiftly.

    @T72on1 - Awesome! Congrats on getting there with the Enigma, and some good runes for Grapelike to boot!

    @PhineasB - Nice progress and some good finds for Quinta. :)

    @Me2NiK - I'll echo the others' sentiments, well done! Slow progress is still good progress (especially in HC), as long as you keep moving forward, you'll get there eventually! Speaking of slow progress...

    --

    The first post-97 checkpoint has been safely reached as Klaus has officially passed the 3.00B mark!

    Some good drops right away in Stormspire, and Shadow Dancers (those hit my overall grail too!). He also found his first fire facet, and it's even pretty decent!

    This allowed Klaus to remove the PTopaz from his Ravenlore and jazz it up a little bit:

    Fun! Now I could bore you all day with more standard S/U finds like his 2nd Arachnid's Mesh, Harlequin's Crest, Reapers, and his 2nd Boneshade, but the real story came in back-to-back runs with not one:

    But TWO Ber runes:

    This happened literally 2 runs before he hit 3.00B. I guess I can't really complain about the lack of HRs in the AT anymore. :p

    First he made this Jah, then took his 2 Ohms and made a Lo, then put them together with his two vexes and made THIS

    Worst possible roll on the redemption aura and one off worst for fire absorb, but I don't care. It's a Phoenix!

    I had to do a pile of charm/jewelry swapping to bolster Klaus' resistances after the loss of Spirit. Ended up taking a bit of a hit to MF, but that's no big deal since he has all his major S/U gear found already. His MF currently sits at 226. Here's how he looks now:

    [​IMG]

    Cold res has taken a hit, but since he's retired from the Ancient Tunnels that isn't as important anyways. Speaking of which, I suppose it's time to roll a better CS map with shrines and see how the numbers really flesh out. He won't be sad to see those Tunnels go, that's for sure!
