Untwinked play in version 1.10? I recently picked the game up again after a long absence. I settled on a WW-barb for my build (I've always played the sorc before). I've noticed that the game is considerably harder than I remember it being. I've gotten my Barb up to level 79 and have almost finished act 2 (hell difficulty). I seem to be taking a very long time to complete easy quests. For example, I can't clean out the claw viper temple without getting smacked around badly. I can barely keep my barb alive, let alone clear areas at a reasonable pace. I followed the WW build guide (Ristaker's to be exact), and feel I've got a solid build going. However, I play untwinked. I've always strayed to more of the purist aspect of the game. I feel if I (or one of my close gaming buddies) don't make it or find it ourselves, I shouldn't use the weapon. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a snob about it or anything. I just think it takes some of the fun out of it if I don't accomplish it myself. So, can an untwinked barb get anywhere? The odds of me finding the ingredients for a BoTD or an Enigma are next to nil. In fact, the most powerful sword I've been able to make is a King's Grace, Legend sword. That sword got me through Nightmare just fine, but just isn't enough for Hell. I've managed for find some really great armor and other gear. I just don't have much luck with runes and swords. What do you guys think? Give it up and buy a BoTD or stick it out and hope?
