    Yet Another Ubers Thread

    Well... a friend had the organs, so we decided 'What the hell!'.

    That complete lack of preparation should in no way detract from the fact that we flew by the seats of out pants and did the ubers, anyways. We did 'em good, with a few false starts.

    :LOL:

    Well, I cut to the chase, I guess, and I apoligize if I'm not a great story teller.

    My friend has a lvl 79 smiter, and decided that he wanted to uber, so he collected up the keys, and thrashed Lilith and Duriel quite handily solo, but called me in with my lvl 85 zealer for Izual, after a few issues with IM in the Furnace. I just slowly marched along, taking out Hell Casters' first, then worrying about the rest of the idiots running around, until we got to Izzy.

    He's a wimp, too.

    So, tonight comes about, and he's ready for the ubers. He an I, as well as another friend of mine get set up with 3 pallys: my zealot, Max's smiter, and Steve's lvl 81 hammerdin. And things promptly go sideways.

    Somehow, someone set off U-Meph first, while I was booking towards U-Diablo, so I get spun around to clear the portal, and get mobbed by skellies and Meph, whom I WASN'T expecting. So I leave and re-enter... and procede to run right out the portal and completely away from the mob perched there waiting for my little head. I managed to convince the bulk of the crowd to chase me around til bodies were recovered, and then I cleared my way though a few minions to Meph, right against the river, when Max comes charging in and starts laying a beating on him. Thank Gods for that, cuz I was really only holding my own with Meph... a little sliver down each zeal. Suddenly, Meph is no more, but Diablo is triggered and running around, chasing Steve. Diablo stood there and took a beating.... for no obvious reason. He just got abused like a prison-house bottom.

    So Steve is still chasing minions, and I'm trying to help, having lost track of Max, when Max annouces he's gonna id the torch. *sigh*

    I wish he'd let me know he found and molested Baal.

    All in all, a good go-around, though... I died twice, total; Steve kept dying, cuz he's got crappy gear, and I think Max died twice... but we got a 17/17 btorch, so we're happy.

    Woot us, I guess.
    :D

    I have known worth than that ! The Torch was lying on the ground, and I just had to quit and rejoin with a char able to pick it up (my Ãœberkiller was wearing a Torch). All of a sudden : "connection interrupted"... Everything was lost, including my time and efforts :rant: ! From this moment, I've never been wearing a torch on my Ãœberkiller anymore :rolleyes:...

    Luckily (I guess), I have 3 chars with no torches, one of whom is my pally; if Max can't grab it, I can.


    Yay us... I think max is still trying to trade the torch... :lol:

    Snowman...

    the problem here is, that while you have a dilemma of which character has a torch or not at what time...this was my attempt on getting my first torch ever.

    To this day I am chasing for a ptorch...however, noone seems to want to trade it for an um+pul+stormshield *thought I put an add here*.

    In my experience, Ptorches are a lot more expensive than that.

    Indeed, all the PTorches I've bought went for 10~15 Ists
    - Amazon 20/20 went for 10 Ists
    - Barb 20/20 went for 13 Ists
    - Sorceress 20/20 went for Soj+2 HR early in the season (that is around 13 Ists too)
    - Necromancer 20/20 went for... can't remember what I paid for it
    - [NL] Sorceress 20/20 went for a Perf. aura Pride 15% superior eth. CV (I probably greatly overpaid this one :grin:... )

    I guess we are back to this perfect imperfect discussion.

    A Ptorch with 11/10 would probably cost 1-2 ists, rather than the 12 for a perfect 20/20 one.

    I heard a rumour there are people looking for "perfectly imperfect" torches too. I.e 10/10. Why? do not ask me.

    Well, hopefully Max and I get as much interest in the torch... I honestly would love to own it, but I just can't afford it right now... I figured out that between my pally and 2 sorcs, I'm tying up about 50 hr's worth of gear... :lol:

    It was definitely fun... but I'm still amused that a lvl 85 zealot is tanking the ubers with no appreciable counter for conviction.

    "Bottom perfect" items are often more valuable than "nearly bottom perfect" items. For example, and for some people, a 10/10 Torch will have more value than a 11/11 one. Why ? The most common answer is that these people like round values... Strange planet we're living in, I tell ya :rolleyes: :grin: !

    What fun you all had. I have been doing Tristram for a long time now and it is still about the most fun thing in the game; since I never see the Clone anymore.

    what kind of torch did you guys get?

    EDIT: Nevermind, just reread the first post. Good job, it is certainly intimidating until you get the hang of it.

    My first visit to Uber Trist:

    Them: Help! My buddies and I are in Uber Trist and need Help!

    Me: Grab my frenzy barb, join game, BO, pop through portal, 3 seconds of lag and dead.

    That was quite early in the season. A few months ago I finished off my first smiter and started collecting keys. Done the Ubers solo 3 times and got a 17/13 pally torch this past weekend!
