Rockstoppers loads of charms over kill speed always. Well, I'm definitely not a pro since I'm only 3~ months in, but I can share my story so far. Unique Armor Sparking Mail Chain Mail* dropped on the way and directly from Nihlathak unique The Dragon Chang Spear. Necro I've been able to run 125 fc, 75 @res and 520% mf since in testing I've found that with my build and playstyle +skills don't really help his speed so that's given me some nice freedom with gear. I plan to use the one with Might aura on Nightmare. Dicided to do 10K as i have a really good map. For example, the Pits, Tunnels, CS, WSK etc. Suicide Branch - Carin Shard - Arm of King Leoric - Blackhand Key Fight wasnt that hard in the end and I was even able to tank his lighting inferno with potions and high HP and resists. Acrtualy sad. If thats not the case, I will gladly switch back to p1. Arachnid Mesh - Nosferatus Coil - Verdungos Hearty Cord, Boots:
Last place to clear was Secret Cow level. That barb is my mfer now.

Gull - The Diggler - The Jade Tan Do - Spectral Shard a javazon to farm bases in hell cows. You can also visit my gallery (I posted link above at start ) where i try to screenshot everything interesting. Would you rather farm for a second Ber, build infinity and respec to Lightning. The Hand of Broc - Bloodfist - Chance Guards - Magefist - Frostburn Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Act 4 was great and I had some upgrades and also EPIC drop. Ha, that def makes you a pro in my world ;)Have Hdin, who just finished Hell and have been farming som Nihlathak keys. U have been working on the grail like crazy and loving it. Wizardspike - Fleshripper - Ghostflame, Scepters: Besides, when you have many chars, you can specialize them. That guy cruised through and we even found a frickin tyraels in the wsk lvl2. If one of your charectors dies, the items are lost? Bane Ash - Serpent Lord - Spire of Lazarus - The Salamander - The Iron Jang B ong After that it was NM mephy and later quickly to Baal and hell once I got either a vipermagi and a Moser's. It was mostly just beetles there. Progress: ACT 5 NM Finished So I stopped running him. Isenharts Lightbrand - Isenharts Horns - Isenharts Case - Isenharts Parry Other than that, just walk in the park.

I made it to Worldstone keep 2 to active the waypoint and decided to visit Nihlathak first this time before Baal. Besides the not impressive luck on bers i've been really happy with a pul+/100 runs and lot's of skillers, SC and jewels. Its not my final stage as I am aiming to be Berserker and I will be switching again at the end of ACT V NM again using second respec reward. I had few finds in act 2: Arctic Furs Quilted Armor, Angelic Halo Ring, Isenharts Lightbrand Broad Sword and unique **DarkGlow Ring Mail. Torch of Iro - Maelstrom - Gravenspine - Umes Lament I didnt get any good new weapon but I was able to find Sigon Wrap Plated Belt, Sigon Sabot Greaves and Sigon Gage Gauntlets. PALADIN Infernostride - Waterwalk - Silkweave - War Traveler - Gore Rider Special Statistics: Block 15%, Damage 747-1255, HP with BO 2598, Mana 270, Magic find +271%, Gold find +200%, all resists on NM 75% Its hell to fight them with melee character but I managed to kill them one by one together with merc. As I understand it, stuff like Tyrials Might and Mang Song can only drop from Baal or lvl85 areas, and as these items are the rareste items that will drop these places, it only makes sence to farm there, as you most like find every other items before you find these. The journey is. Money wasnt issue but it wasnt fun to keep running into town to revive him. Clearing most of the act wasnt hard and I didnt really have trouble anywhere. Berserkers Headgear - Berserkers Hauberk - Berserkers Hatchet I've done 4.7K and just got my first ber in one of the latest runs. Nords Tenderizer - Demon Limb - Baranars Star - Horizons Tornado - Stormlash - Stone Crusher - Schaefers Hammer - Windhammer - Earth Shifter - The Cranium Basher, Bows: Cleglaws Tooth - Cleglaws Pincers - Cleglaws Claw For some reason I didnt screenshot one of the best drops in Act 5 so I forgot to mentioned it before. Spineripper - Heart Carver - Blackbogs Sharp - Stormspike Sanders Paragon - Sanders Superstition - Sanders Taboo - Sanders Riprap I wonder how much it would cost on battle net lol. AMAZON I started to play Single Player during the Alpha Test because I can not watch the game wirhout playing it. Fun stuff, I cant wait to start my Holy Grail Sorc / Necro on D2R. I also finally cubed 4 perfect topaz Gems and placed them in Gothic plate. My character still could not go passed act 3 safely so I created a few different characters to help out. I simply need better gear to survive on hell. I already had sigon helm from act 3 and sigon pieces together provided nice +50% magic find on boots and huge attack ratting bonus from Sigon hell. Bonehew - The Reapers Toll - Tomb Reaver - Stormspire, Spears:
Few items also dropped: Unique Riphook Razor Bow, Visceratuan Defender and set items Infernal Sign Heavy Belt, Berserker Headgear Helm and Vidala Snare Amulet. Sounds like you been puting a lot of hours in to this all ready! i started almost one year ago with several breaks in between and stand now at 29 items left. I used same tactic as almost whole normal difficulty, enjoy scenery and let mercenary do do work , he was more than capable with 50% crushing blow even when he had just Strength in Poleaxe. But, I still like farming other areas/bosses every now and then for variety. Knell Striker - Rusthandle - Stormeye LVL: 67 On my blizzsorc I went all in on damage and mf because she usually doesn't get hit doing AT and Pindle/Meph. Howltusk Great Helm dropped at second floor together with 2 socketed Partizan, non etheral but still little upgrade for my merc so I made new Strength Rune word for him Third floor and Mephisto was easy and he dropped Isenhart Armor and Tancred weapon I had both alredy. And thus a paladin was created. Durance of Hate was so huge and full of dolls and vampires, they didnt do that much dmg but I was clearing it for a long time. Warshrike - Gimmershred - Lacerator, Javelins: Remember the grail itself is not the goal. Also if anyone would like to join and start something similar feel free to post it here and even do updates in same form as I do, I dont mind I hope to finish my Holy Grail before Diablo 2 Ressurected will be released. Yeah, thats why I am making all 7 characters so i have different options where to MF. the grinding is exhausting i must say, so good luck and be patient. Informations how did I progress with the game if I had problems with something , what did I find and stuff like that to make it more interesting. Useless for me, At this point only Nihlathak was left and the Secret Cow Level. Cow Kings Horns - Cow Kings Hide - Cow Kings Hooves Barbarian: Arreats Face - Wolfhowl - Demonhorns Edge - Halaberds Reign The Meat Scraper - Blackleach Blade - Athenas Wrath - Pierre Tombale Couant - Husoldal Evo - Grims Burning Dead Druid: Jalals Mane - Cerebus Bite - Ravenlore - Spirit Keeper I have good level 68, resist are kind of mediocre as lightning is only 33% but generaly speaking my damage and other stats sucks, my shield sucks big time. Only Beetles were doing some damage to me when they had nasty abilities together. Instering in hearing your guys grail story and tricks n tips :). here you go, this will come in handy to track your progress: d2-holy-grail.herokuapp. Started off as a pure singer for safety with dual wizzy now a zerker purely for pindle runs with over 1050mf and a kill speed between 20-30 seconds. I think 200-250 mf is the value to aim for (250 mf = 125 unique), more slows you down too much. Can you run through your necro gear, I've been struggling to get my necro to those numbers (though he is using a deaths Web so maybe that's where the fcr and res are down from). Milabregas Diadem - Milabregas Robe - Milabregas Orb - Milabregas Rod 3bers!!! I bought Mercenary with Might aura and started clearing act 2. I have good magic find and as you can see I am getting set and uniques loot but I am pretty unlucky as most of items I found are pretty useless to me. My First Unique item Lenymo Sash dropped by using Find item on some monster in Catacoms and from corpse on pike just next to it dropped Arctic Binding Light Belt. Poison Necro can sweep the Pits in seconds, Trapsin is a natural Nihlathak killer, Light sorc and Javazon can run Baal in two+something minutes, Barb is perfect for Pindle, horking a double drop every second run, which means every two days spent on it with barb are like three days with another character. I started with a blizzsorc to farm the basics, then made a lightning sorc for rune farming and did Lower Kurast for Enigma and Infinity and am now branching out into other characters for fun and potentially farming certain places better. If I didn't had tyraels I would stay in pit and at with either the barb or the sorc. It was really great, because usualy barbarian has troubles to hit monsters without investing a lot of points into dexteriy at this phase of the game. Fight with boss Baal is again more painfull than dangerous for Barbarian. However, effectivity isn't just about statistics of particular areas. Nice Light plate 14% ED with two sockets dropped in Throne of Destruction and yet again bad drop from act boss, Nightsmoke Belt and another Unique Falchion. String of Ears - Razortail - Glooms Trap - Snowclash - Thundergods Vigor Hopefully I will find something from Pindleskin. NORMAL ACT IV Where I got lucky on !!! I didnt prepare for fight as he is joke on nightmare and went in right away. Pluckeye - Witherstring - Raven Claw - Rogues Bow - Stormstrike - Wizendraw - Hellclap - Blastbark Very few people are going to reply too much 2 months later. Andarial didnt drop anything good.
Sazabis Mental Sheath - Sazabis Cobalt Redeemer - Sazabis Ghost Liberator I found a lot of charms in my playthrough on /players 3, some with resists and together with ancient pledge and Natural resistance skill I managed to have 75% fire and Lightning resist. The Impaler - Kelpie Snare - Soulfeast Tine - Hone Sundan - Spire of Honor Hello, I am trying to to ejoy Diablo 2 while waiting for remaster and I decided to make the Holy Grail.
