Untwinked Cold Fusion Paladin - Possible? For the fun of it, I decided to try an untwinked cold fusion paladin. The build will likely be similar to a Teslafroster, with some differences in skill selection. Normal started out pretty easily on P8 and he picked up a 6-11 scepter with CTC Amp from Akara by lvl 11. That took him easily through most of the first act and he hit Andariel at level 19, with two points into Holy Freeze. She dropped a 20% Nagelring and . . . Crushflange! The Countess dropped a Tal and he made Stealth in Splint Mail (which he still wears at lvl 46). Acts 2-4 yielded Hsarus' belt and boots, a two OS tower shield. Act 5 yielded a Shael (two actually) and he made Rhyme in the tower shield. Duskdeep and Cathan's Seal round out the equipment of note. Rare ring and amulet are middling (despite lots of gambling) and the gloves are nothing (17% to PR and 14% Magic Find). Baal and his minions were not difficult, although P8 became P1. Drop again wasn't useful. Andariel in nightmare went down easily (15 points in both HF and HS), although the merc died early with his pathetic gear. She yielded a Nightsmoke (which won't help as the Hsarus combination improves with levels) and a unique barbed shield which won't replace Rhyme. Radament died as well and that's where he stands to date. His readout: Name: TitusAndronicus Class: Paladin Experience: 34187760 Level: 46 Naked/Gear Strength: 75/90 Dexterity: 85/92 Vitality: 135/135 Energy: 15/30 HP: 495/520 Mana: 82/82 Stamina: 244/259 Defense: 21/361 AR: 410/1014 Fire: 132/92/32 Cold: 79/39/-21 Lightning: 89/49/-11 Poison: 103/63/3 MF: 59 Block: 61 GF: 50 FR/W: 45 FHR: 37 IAS: 0 FCR: 25 Has anyone played an untwinked teslafroster through Hell? Not quite sure what to expect as this continues. I will run Countess for runes as well as bosses, full clears are not a requirement and ATMA is used (no ladder runewords). One of the reasons I wanted to try this was to rediscover some of the tactics with the Cube. Merc is the proud owner of a Savage Partizan (59-129) from the Kris/Belt/Staff/Diamond formula.
