Tournament of the Scavenger - 2nd thread

OK, I have tried to find the last state of everyone's character. I have probably missed someone. If you are that someone, then update here. If you need the rules for the tournament, go back to the original thread to get them (Tournament of the Scavenger).

As for the question about unsocketing a souvenir, you cannot. You also cannot reroll an item. The only way you can change a souvenir is to add sockets, use sockets that are empty, upgrade with the cube recipe. If I have missed some other valid improvement, let me know. The key is you cannot back up and try again by unsocketing or rerolling.

Please use as short an update as possible. One theory says that when a page fills up we are vulnerable to whatever is happening that corrupts the thread. I suggest just a couple lines and then a quick score calc prior to the table. If have shortened the table by doing away with the separate RIP table. If you die, just provide a final entry in correct score order and add RIP after your score.

Packrat Killed Duriel and moves on

Packrat has killed Duriel. Blessed Hammer did it on P8 with a last second loss of the mercenary and no trips to town. My Act 2 souvenir was another interesting dilemma. I had Isenhart's case and Parry. I also had a Rondache with three sockets and +6 to all resist. The Rondache could have been used to store perfect diamonds as packrat developed them, but in the end he decided to switch to an Act 3 merc and go for all of Isenhart's set for that merc. The Parry would have been nice to keep, but it was not allowed because the Act 2 merc could not carry it into Act 3. Therefore, the Isenhart's case is my Act 2 souvenir!
Act1 Souvenir: Hsarus' Iron Stay (1x2)
Act2 Souvenir: Isenhart's case(2x3) (For the mercenary)

ScavengingSkunk has defeated Diablo. It was actually quite an easy time… having a ranged attack merc and a summonable ally is a big help in the Chaos Sanctuary. Diablo himself dropped nothing of interest (typical pile of rares), but a unique boss on the way up dropped this, which has become my act 4 souvenir:

Manald Heal
Ring
Required Level: 15
Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
Item Level: 32
Fingerprint: 0x4d2ee8e1
+20 to Life
Regenerate Mana 20%
7% Mana stolen per hit
Replenish Life +7


Now my problem is that I have to start act 5 with only 25000 gold, no armor, no weapon, no boots, no helmet, no merc gear, etc. Starting act 4 with 200K gold was much better. I hope I can get some decent drops quickly!

I haven't got far so won't post an update yet but I have a question. If I take a socketted item as souvenir am I allowed to change what its socketted with later?

You cannot unsocket a souvenir and then socket it again. You also cannot reroll a souvenir with the cube recipe. What you can do is reroll an item that is not a souvenir yet and then make it a souvenir if you like it enough. I guess you could also unsocket an item that is not a souvenir if you want to change it. That seems a little extreme though. You can also make a socketed item a souvenir and not fill it with sockets until later when you find the right socket fillers.

In other words, you cannot back out the attributes of a souvenir item, but you can develop it further if you like.

Blaen the Bone Necro

Score
Level = -20
WP = +10
Quests = +12
Souvenirs:
Nagel Ring (Act1 Normal) = +3

Gold : 45356

I was beginning to think I wouldn't have anything much as a choice of Souvenir for act 1. Then 3 uniques dropped 2 in catacombs level 3 and 1 from Andy. The other 2 were not useful but the ring certainly is so that the choice.

I was going TP tomeless from the start to save a little gold since as we all know TP tomes drop in the jail right - wrong. I got none from there and finally had to shell out and buy one.

Its amazing when you don't sell items how little gold you actually get from drops. I have never before bothered to keep any +GF items but this time I grabbed them all.

Andy wasn't that hard with 3 in bone spear and a bone wall keeping her off merc and me. Never played a bone necro before its interesting learning how to use the wall.

Perhaps her fear lent heat to her flames, for they seemed to come faster and hotter than ever before. Andariel died in seconds.

But I was in trouble. Despite cramming all the MF I could find onto both Nim & Shikha throughout the act, they found not a single set item and but one unique: the Umbral Disk small shield. Indeed, their overall haul of items was perhaps the worst I've ever seen at this point in the game. My best other item was probably a +10FCR / +10% poison resist ammy.

Time to cash in the imbue. I went with gloves, and the result was OK: +16% fire resist / +46% extra gold / autorepair / something useless. Dissatisfied, I tried gambling a few pairs of gloves, but succeeded only in depleting my cash, the best result being +13% MF.

In the end, it was a difficult call between the imbued gloves and the unique shield, but I went with the Umbral Disk. As Nim's one and only unique of the act it makes an appropriate souvenir. It's mods of interest to a Sorc are +30% block, +10 dex, and +20 life. Unlike the gloves, it can also be socketed later with a perfect diamond, and has the further attraction of taking up only one of two possible shield slots.

Onward, to Lut Gholein!

Packrat hammered Mephisto at P8 with no real trouble (5 full rejuvs were used). Then came the decision. Packrat loved that Heraldric shield, but would it serve well in Hell? Sanders gloves or boots were pretty, but a poor choice. The merc had a sword that was lousy, but it was never used anyway. Finally, that Heraldric Shield won the day; maybe an offhand shield in hell.

The thrill of seeing famed Lut Gholein for the first time was swiftly dispelled by the unrelenting heat. Likewise, being introduced to the charming Lord Jerhyn was soon followed by an encounter with the insufferably patronising Drognan.


Teaming up with the doughty warrior Pratham has more than offset the loss of Nim's equipment. Enfolded in his defensive aura, he draws their foes into clumps where they are easily incinerated. Nim's discomfort with the climate has prompted her to begin dabbling in cold magic, a natural correlate to her intrinsic aptitude for fire. Her freezing spikes have already proven themselves against the Horadric Mummies and their undying hordes.

Notable, though unuseable finds were the Deathspade unique axe and Hsarus' Iron Stay buckler.

ScavengingSkunk has defeated Baal and the Cow King, and moved on to Nightmare difficulty. No good drops from either boss, but I did craft the following armor for my merc, which will be my act 5 souvenir:

Grim Shell Plate Mail
Defense: 142
+4 to Strength, +10 to Life, +22% Enhanced Defense, Magic Damage Reduced by 3, 3% Life stolen per hit, +2 Life after each Demon Kill

If I keep the act 3 merc, then the +2 life per kill will be handy, but not spectacular… but if I trade him in for an act 2 HF merc in NM, then the leech and life per kill will be great.

Packrat killed Diablo on his own at P8. It simply costs too much to resurrect that mercenary!
Diablo dropped 6 rare weapons. All were left on the ground to mark the grave of Diablo. Yech!
Picking a souvenir is not getting any easier. This time it will be the Superior Ethereal Great Helm that I found for my merc. Defense is 52 and it has one socket. Sigh.
