Yet another: My First DC Experience I created an open game with my lvl 78 MF trapsin. This gal uses lighting only and is MF. I went to the river of flame to complete the second quest. Just starting, several mobs came to greet me, I killed them and one of them dropped a buriza-do . My best drop with this char. That was like 2 minutes into the game. I continue my way up when all of the sudden without warning the message came: "Diablo Walks the Earth" and everything trembles. I double-checked my chat window, there was no SOJ sold to merchant messages. I had no clue what I was suppose to do next. I heard that people like to spawn it in act V with the boss of q1 but I haven't killed the real D so that was not an option. Went to act I cold plains kill things but DC didn't show up. Oh one more thing: to my surprise no one joined the game. This was open, no passwd. I read that people join in within seconds. After a while I decided to ignore it, I was happy with the Buriza anyway and wasn't looking for DC. When I came close to the Hephasto, DC spawns and comes charges at me. I ran to several corpses that I had made on my way and then cast Death Sentries. It didn't seem to have any effects on DC. My rogue had a prevent mob heal and I have a maxed shadow master that could tank him for a few seconds and even some 15 seconds when lucky. I continue spanning traps on it. I went several times to town to resurrect the merc and get potions. After 20 minutes, it was obvious that I hasn't done a thing to DC. In all this time no one join in. I have read so many stories that I decided not to ask for help. The usual guys who just come and hostile me, kill DC and get the charm. I decided that if I don't get it, no one will and left the game. Still I got my Buriza. I wish I had another high-level character that could solo it. A barb maybe? Next time.
