Sorc is way slower to start than I remember...chugging mana pots gets tiring. Running around with this thing (found on pally or nerco) and spamming frost nova when there is enough stuff to murder with it.

>> No.5587591

>>5587553
You could get better rings, but it wasn't super easy. +1 Skills at just level 29 is pretty huge.
It was also not *too* uncommon, farmable at a low enough level, and only took one inventory slot, which just kinda made it a nice currency item. Small charms with good stats were also popular for trades(especially life/poison with res), but their values were less consistent. Perfect/chipped gems had value, but took too much space, etc.

Honestly me neither, I've just been getting very lucky. Mostly it was on private servers with buffed rune drops, or on bnet where I could trade. I think you'd need a bit of luck, and a lot of patience. I don't know the numbers for actually farming them, but I can't imagine it's a speedy process. I think the play is to see what rune drops you get and go for runewords that you've already gotten a bunch of the harder runes for.

I just can't fathom how did Blizzard manage to strip just about anything intresting from this game and release the turd that is DIII. That is a level of incompetence that is bordering on a sabotage.

I've got every goddamn class in DIII to 70 and 1k-ish of paragon, yet I had more fun running around with a gimped necro in the last few days then in all that 'improved' DIII play.

Playing, doing mods, having fun. I kind of fell off when the baal-run bots took over. Do you know that in patch 1.10 it took 1/14000000 to get a ZOD if a rune dropped from a proper TC? Some tard tried once to convince me that it takes a month or so of farming to get one. Are you that kind of an idiot?

> Kill hell baal three or four times and wow you've increased your lifetime elite drops by 400%.

I've done that couple hundread times. Once even it took me and my team two hours, because we played on a fresh private server and doing Hell Baal at lvl 60 is not healthy. Fun times.

Btw - I have also never found a class specific unique.

>Play a different game because single player is obviously not for you, or play only online, and stop complaining about drops.

Drops in DII are retarded low. Always were. It is the sole reason why blizz made elites drop in DIII drop like candy.

I recall that in patch 1.09 there were a total of _three_ griswold caducei on the battle.net and Windforce once sold for $1000 on ebay. Two weeks before the first major dupe wave. Go figure.

BTW in 1.09 finding a white elite plated belt ( war belt was it? ) was rarer then some uniques. TC90 was an idiotic concept.

So sir. This is how this game works. Getting an elite drop is fairly rare. Getting an elite and unique is even rarer. There being just a few uniques is also not helping.

To give you a glimpse - in order for Baal to drop from TC 87 ( top tier items ) you need to hit 1:989 chance. Which means that in 1000 baalruns you might _never_ get TC 87 item from him, let alone an unique one.

Now, come to think of it, I might have found some of those garbage ones - like Blackoak or Gladiator's. I dunno, its been a while.

No, they aren't, but the pattern remains. The higher something is on the TC ladder, the rarer it drops. Baal does not shit out TC81 or even TC72 items. People were running for years after a Herald of Zakarum or Occy and those are TC50-something.

Holy shock/zeal pally from the last few threads here. I made a Crescent Moon in 1h sword, which I used for A2 to A4 until I found a Baranar's Star, which seems to be much better.

Congratulations! You've found a valid end-game weapon. You can certainly beat Hell Baal with it.
And if you want a weapon upgrade for your merc, make an Obedience polearm (if A2) or if you somehow don't need the aura (you certainly might not need one with a Holy Shocker, though with Baranar you can also respec to Fana and go Might+Fanaticism) and want something unorthodox, Harmony Blade Bow (for A1 Rogue, I sometimes like her support as a meleer) or Lawbringer one-handers (for an A5 barb).

NOW THAT GOD IS DEAD (and sadly, Deeblo hasn't yet risen to take His place) and morality has been undermined, the endeavor for meaning is more frustrating and futile than ever before. To reflect this, there are unceasingly more works of art that expound upon the premise of perpetual pointless progress in purgatory, and I can think of none more successful than Blizzard North's classic computer game from the turn of the millenium: Deeblo Two.

This is your invitation to play Deeblo Two, over the Internet (and for free!) with a sexy young twink bro who has a nice dick. I've posted this ad in the understanding that, for some, this may be preferable to not doing anything whatsoever with a sexy young twink bro who has a nice dick. I live alone, but I cannot allow you to come over with a laptop to play, because I do not support the oxymoron of laptop gaming. Likewise, I cannot allow you to come over with a desktop computer to play, because it's 2015 and LAN parties just aren't cool anymore, old man. If anything about you ought be straight, make it your priorities.

Besides, I'll be in no state to have company over since I'll be naked (pics related), as I often prefer to be when I play games. I've learned the awkward way that being naked around others is not conducive to a properly immersive gaming environment. And Deeblo Two does require both hands to play, if not much else. If you're reading this ad on a computer with a mouse and keyboard attached, you're all set. Follow the link below to an IRC channel I reside in, and we'll help you get prepared to play. Don't worry about legality; I've got spare legit keys and am generous when need be. No, this isn't any scam of any sort -- it's a chatroom, the all-text kind, and it's more convenient for me to manage than playing email tag with so many separate people. Please pick a unique nickname when you join. Also, please be patient, leave the tab open, we're not always on our computers or looking at the chat, etc.

I posted this in casual encounters because I assume you're mostly casual gamers, and this is a fine opportunity to train you faggots into real men (or women) capable of putting down Deeblo. No, but really, the only people who still play this dead game are either not people (bot programs) or lame-o spergs who've already hit max level with every class and copy all the cookie-cutter builds and skip the cutscenes. Fuck that. I've tried getting my select group of Internet friends (the people in that chatroom) to play it with me, but they've all been put off by it. One of them is straight, lives with his girlfriend, and actually bought Destiny at launch. He thinks he's somehow above Deeblo Two and never wants to play it, even though he loved Deeblo Classic and Deeblo Triple.

I don't understand straight people. Please represent me, so I don't have to understand anything anymore. Please celebrate the civil rights victories you've fought for on my behalf with petabytes of inane forum posts and petitions. Please understand. We've run out of time; we've run out of space.

The real appeal to me of playing Deeblo Two on Hardcore -- and only on Hardcore -- is the ecstasy of sudden, violent, permanent death. When you die, it's over. Oftentimes I even uninstall the game just after for maximum satisfaction. It is like the taste of air after nearly drowning, or better: Deeblo Two is the cure for the cancer it provides. The cancer of clicking, clicking, clicking, clicking, clicking, clicking, and caring about comparing so many shitty swag drops to get the best damage, the best numbers. Always bigger numbers, multiplying just like cancer. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata died of cancer about a week ago. He never got the chance to play Deeblo Two with me and experience the cure for cancer. You may admire him, but you don't have to make the same mistakes he did.

The only deaths that matter are those of leaders and artists. Satoru Iwata led a company that had given up on artists.

Deeblo Two is a cooperative game for up to eight players. It also has PvP, but it's optional and it sucks and we won't talk about it. We will share the same screen-space, for heightened intimacy and tension, with all our attack skills causing kaleidoscopic carnage. Every enemy in Deeblo Two is half bloodbag, half slot machine, and all easy (until you get to Hell, or so I've heard). You click them, they die, and then they drop random swag (also known by the pedestrian term "loot") which you can equip to kill bigger things quicker for better swag. The biggest risk is getting surrounded and gangbanged to death. When this occurs to you, I will not mourn your death, and I will instead promptly divest your corpse of its swag and parade around with it, killing what you couldn't while you feel dead and cucked. This is similar to not only finding another man with your lover, but already on his way out the door, wearing your clothes and with a copy of your housekey on his lanyard (formerly yours). That's just what you get for being a shitty player and not investing your stats into good synergies.

But we will feel guilty for not adequately protecting you, and we will miss you. So there is that. As Harlan Ellison wrote in his afterword: For a short time you were here, and for a short time you mattered.

Sex. Death. No strings attached. DRM-free. Are you chill? Are you clean? Are you discreet? Are you Anonymous? Can you feel shame anymore?

The only consolation for death is choosing it in advance. Clicking that checkbox. There is no reason to play otherwise. But I don't want to die alone. Not yet. I haven't given up yet. I don't deserve to die yet. I don't want to play Deeblo Two alone.

Some people may have been offended by the gender stereotyping in my previous ad, where I jokingly implied that women are averse to videogames ("You must be a man because uhhhhhhhhhhh videogames.") What I actually meant by that, of course, and what the ad was partly about, was sucking dick. If there are any women out there who are hardcore gamers and have dicks that need be sucked and were offended by my ad, I apologize profusely. But I think I'm done with smoking cock for a while now. I've had many chances to smoke cock, but I've never yet had the chance to play Deeblo Two properly. We could help each other. We could get ahead, not just get head. Maybe it does get better.

It could be read that David Byrne is singing about government oppression, but I think a more logical understanding is a prediction of the dehumanizing effects of operant conditioning chambers, such as Deeblo Two, or discussion involving memes. After all, this is the same man who, in 1983, prominently featured the proper spelling of the word "VIDEOGAME" (ONE WORD, DIPSHITS) in the background of their unforgettable Stop Making Sense tour (see image above). This, decades before internet degenerates would dedicate their whole idle lives towards shitposting about "video games", as if they understood anything about anything.

Sounds like your problem might be a lack of defence, possibly coupled with insufficient leech.
With a good armor + Shout and Iron Skin you should be able to avoid most of the damage if it isn't elemental damage giving you trouble.
Leech % is reduced to a third on Hell and councilmembers have like 33% leech resistance IIRC, so you need a fair bit of it to be effective. What weapons are you using? You might want to use an arreats face or vampire gaze instead of IK hat.

You can put a few more points into it at the moment, to keep it alive, but down the line you'll get more +skills from gear, so you can reallocate the invested ones later.

Bone armor is breddy gud for not dying, I use it on all my hardcore necros. Similar to above, but some people actually choose to max it. But pro tip, don't max the skill itself if you are going to, it actually gets more damage absorb from the synergies than the skill itself.

i put points into Clay golem just so his +slow% is stronger. by the time I have a good 10 or 15 points into it he has enough slow that I can switch my Merc away from a +slow polearm like Kelpie or Razortine to something with more damage like Obedience. Clay golem also has a decent amount of HP with points put into it.
Blood golem used to be the best golem in old patches where Iron maiden & blood golem together were bugged. now he's just kinda shit.
Iron golem is cool if you give him the right item but if you use a good item on him and he despawns, dies or you log out of the game you lose him. always seemed like a waste of time to me.

bone armor is good, worth getting to 20 if you have the spare skillpoints. means the difference between an archer pack 1-shotting you or you dying if something gets the jump on you. obviously you can just play more carefully to avoid those kind of situations but it's nice if you like to play lazy semi-afk Necro.

Swapped out chancies for laying of hands, ik helm for arreats face, now using highlords ammy and kept the skillers I have instead of going all gf charms. Survivability seems ok but I have only done 2 runs so can't really tell yet, I am hitting max light and fire res though (75L, 85F). Gold find has taken a hit coming down to about 800 main and 1230 swap (and ~300mf on swap) but still managed to pull +300k each run. Main weapons are grief and lightsabre and merc is using eth reapers toll but he dies pretty quick - will mess around with his gear tomorrow, see if I can keep him alive.
Before I was relying on sheer hp from max bo to stay alive with only a coupe of points into iron skin and natural resist. With these changes it seems to be a lot better. I think I only used 3 rejuvs and some mana pots for mana burn.

Revives for Hell.

You can't use CE on Baal or Diablo so your best bet is to teleport right on top of them with enemies with crushing blow and high HP (udars, minotaurs, balrogs, etc.)

Unlike Diablo 1, D2 enemies can stack infinitely. They just don't due to their AI.

But when you teleport next to Baal with 10 skeletons and 20 revives, they will all be adjacent to him. Add in a might aura, some and a merc with freezeing and slow, plus decrepify and you can pin him or Diablo.

Revives will have tens of thousands of life and if you have fanaticism on they will rape their life bars.

Only bosses require good gear. A necromancer is the only class that can do Hell naked. CE just screen wipes all regular mobs. You can lure Meph near bodies.

How many points into Revive?

>> No.5594696

I forget. I realized that with decent + to skills maxing amp and CE wasn't totally necessary. Maybe 15 points.

Decrepify you need and blind for Gloams. Terror isn't bad to have for crowd control early on, but you can respect it out.

That left me sinking 15+ into revives. It's good if you want to sit afk and be more hands off. You have so many meat shields.

>> No.5594904

>>5594576
You don't need revive. Summoner necro in hell can solo any boss using clay golem ( slow ), decrepify ( also slow and amp damage ) and a mercenary with a crushing blow/damage gear. This combo pretty much bugs the boss out and you can farm the mofo with +700mf gear.

Its pretty pathetic with hell Baal, because it bugs him so hard, he can't even attack - gets perma-stun locked.

A bare-bones summoner necromancer needs:
20 skeleton
20 skeleton matery
1 summon resist
1 revive
1 clay golem
1 golem mastery
1 corpse explosion
1 amp-damage
1 decrep

+2/+3 summoning gear can be bought off vendors and blue ammy with +3 summoning will drop at some point. Getting more then 1 skill in revive is pointless, as +skill gear will take care of extras, and getting more then 10 is kind of hard to keep up. +10 skills on clay golem with mastery makes him close to invincible in hell.

All other skill points you have you can spend on just about anything else, its a matter of taste - like skele-mages, corpse explosion, bone-armor or whatever.

If you're willing to give up the pindle portal, he can actually be very, very fast with a set map and a TP sorc. While this is true, and he can drop every item in the game as well as top level charms, it's not better than just killing a dozen elites in the worldstone keep on the way to baal, plus all the trash mobs at the same time.

He's got a decent drop chance for anything Vex and above, but you're still better off killing for greater numbers of enemies over one guy who has a better drop chance individually, it's why no one really farms ghosts in the arcane sanctuary, sure they have a much better rune drop rate, but there's so few.

mages are trash outside of cold ones for slow and posion for the very rare enemies that heal. Neither are worth the effort though.

>Where's the point of deminishing returns w CE, 10 points?
There are no diminishing returns for CE, unless you're talking by percentage of what you already have. It gains 0.3 yards per level and 0.4 yards every third level forever. I wouldn't go more than 4-5 levels invested, get the rest from +skills gear. The range becomes unnecessary once you go beyond the screens edge, unless you're building a cow farmer.

remember another time, one of the two times out of the 7 years I was playing, when someone had shown me a 40%mf ring. They aren't very good but they are insanely rare. He had traded something stupid to a nub in a baal game for it.

>Any tips or suggestions for going through the higher difficulties solo? Previously in would just beat normal with every class using whatever gear dropped along the way.
Nightmare can be easier than Normal for some builds if done that way because a lot of builds hit massive powerspikes (loads of AoE).
Hell is harder and will require you to have items, and is a true test to kill Baal there. But that doesn't mean you have to grind: you can get decent items with Horadric Cube crafting and runewords.
Some quick tips:
>You don't NEED to re-run areas
The game can be beaten single-pass without repetition of areas, but it's harder that way and requires some understanding. It's no shame to run bosses or profitable areas, but you don't need to grind for grind's sake. Only grind when you feel like it.
>pick a character who scales primarily with +skill and not weapon damage
This takes an edge off of worrying about finding a good weapon to progress. Sorceress, Trap Assassin, Javelin Amazon, any Necromancer are classic babby's first solo builds for a reason
>hybridize damage
Pure single type damage runs into problems on higher difficulties. Equip a merc, get a secondary skill, use a multi-elemental weapon on switch, or run past monsters you can't fight.
>switch it up
Collect jewelry with specific resistances and get some other useful utility weapons to switch to, just in case. Don't neglect resistances.
>when in doubt, pump Vita
Get Strength only to carry items (60 STR is a good minimum due to Plated Belts).
No build ever needs Energy. You might only consider Energy if you're running a Softcore Sorceress (or some Energy Shield Sorceress) and want to ease up on the blue addiction, but it still sucks and you will respec out of it anyhow.
Dexterity only to hit Max Block, it's not a good source of Attack Rating.
Otherwise, get Vita.

>> No.5603770

>>5603750
>check vendors
Whenever you feel like your gear sucks and nothing drops, check your vendors. Early on they're often a source of 2 socket grey weapons (and similar; 3 socket bows and so on) and for example Elzix can gamble you a Plate Mail when it's still not on sale at regular vendors. Bone Shield of Deflection from Drognan will help against Duriel. At later levels they provide +100 life plated belts and +300% Enhanced Damage weapons, so don't underestimate the "blues". Act 2 Normal Drognan is also your #1 shop for staves, wands and scepters with multiple +3 on caster skills, some in which you can also put a runeword in.
>ONLY "GREY" (normal socketed weapons) CAN HAVE RUNEWORDS. NOT UNIQUES, NOT "MAGIC" BLUES. Also, DOUBLE CHECK your runewords before you fuck it up. Get a Runewords mod or similar functionality (I think PlugY has it) to be able to use all runewords in Single Player.
>Act 2 Mercenaries
They provide tanking for casters and a Might aura for melees (the Attack ones from Nightmare). They're easy to itemize thanks to fairly easy to make runewords (Insight, Obedience) and a Horadric Cube recipe for a Savage Polearm (look it up). They can really help you push an additional edge or round out a weakness.
>Cube is your friend
Cube up your gems and runes, cube potions into Rejuvs, craft stuff you're lacking, upgrade good uniques that are running out of style (Steeldriver and Ribcracker are godly for this). Use obscure crafting recipes like the aforementioned Savage Polearm. Learn the cube, love the cube.
>give me a cookie cutter build
in an "ease to play" tier list order from top to bottom, all of these can beat the game without much problem or item-finding woes, with decent safety

Because the game has some counterintuitive mechanics and there's a prevailing notion is that Diablo 2 is a loot treadmill game where you can't beat Hell without first grinding Nightmare Lower Kurast until you're level 80. There is not a whole lot of info on playing solo self-found.

Whatever I write this guy about the game won't help the fact that he still has to execute it on his own, pick according to desired flavor, and deal with his own unique flavor of RNG.
Basically I felt like helping someone who probably considered your question and figured he doesn't care. While also stipulating discussion and passing info on a message board. Probably better than acting 2 cool for school.

Meph (both NM and Hell) is an everyman who drops a lot of solid uniques (not all of them, though). He's the go-to choice for a broad variety of wealth.
Andy is notable primarily for the bugged quest drop and an extraordinary chance for unique jewelry. NM Andy is technically the best source if you're looking specifically for SoJs* and Hell Andy is a good source for jewelry (and other stuff) in general.
Don't run Duriel. There's no point - he takes forever to reach and his drop isn't anything special. For me, he often drops shit like a pile of gold and 6 scrolls of Town Portal for some reason.

I mean you can if you want but if you're just running the bosses it's quicker to just take the waypoints.
If you kill Nithilthak you lose the red portal I believe anyway and though the council "can" drop good stuff once in a while it's just better overall when you can just run 2 or 3 Meph runs in the same time as killing the council&Meph once.

You should be able to kill him with amp and decently leveled skellies, if he's not dying, you can click on the pedestal in the middle of the map, which will restart the fight with the three of them again, it re-rolls their stats so he may be easier to kill.

A big meme back in the day. It suffered heavily from the guided arrow change in 1.10, though I don't remember if it got its stats nerfed or not.

Naturally I got garbage rolls, but hey, it's still something my amazon will appreciate come level 41.

bugger on the roll, mate. I've got an upped 198% sitting around somewhere.

It's a bare minimum Hell viable weapon for a "valid" build that has overall one of the lowest DPS values in the game, so I'd be happy nonetheless.

Otherwise I'd just keep rerolling Harmonies in MBs/GMBs.

Man, I remember getting this from shenks and putting it on my druid werebear when I was a kid. I felt so clever using a bow in bear form. The damage and freeze was very nice

Is there anyway to make an iron golem tanky enough to make out of a Beast runeword and not die?

>> No.5615816

>>5615801
Just hold the beast yourself lmao, it's not worth losing the runes unless you're online. I'm pretty sure it beats out whatever +skills weapon you could fit in the weapon slot, especially if you have torch and anni.

I had some some problems with beast iron golem on the realms.

First and worst, using iron golem permanently means you can't clay/decrep bosses and the ubers. The fire golem has an aura that draws all the aggro so it's quite useful too.

Another big problem is that fanat is not especially good with skeletons. Skeletons have a hard 15 frame delay between swings that is not affected by IAS. You just don't get much out of it percentage-wise

The -defense on Infinity is all you need and much stronger for skeletons' hit rate than the +AR on Fanat. Might+Infinity merc obviates it, really, and leaves your hands open for something good like hoto.

I wanted to hold an Enigma and free up the mercs hands so he didn't have to hold the Beast. Also I'm playing single player.
>>5615887
Well you can decrep but yes better w clay.
Wait I thought fanat worked on skele? That was why I wanted one

God, rolling halls of anguish with flayers/skeletons as a blizz sorc is so good. Pity I'm only getting 6.5% for a clear of it now. I guess hell baal takes over as primary exp from 90-99?

Yeah especially the late 90s. Only baal himself and nihlathak give noticable xp, and only baal if we're being really honest

It does. Fanat from Beast boosts their attack animation from 18 to (IIRC) 14 frames, but beyond that they also have a 15 frame delay between attack animations where they just stand around and don't play their attack animations; what that anon means is that Fanat will then effectively take you from 33 to 29 frames between attacks.
It's still a ~12% dps gain by itself, coupled with the bit of extra ED% it's adequate reason to use Beast in your main hand. Just keep a king leo or golemlords on switch to raise your skellies with.

Holy fuck the rarest fucking amulet with a near perfect roll. I want one so bad. I've dropped only one my entire life. It's so rare some grail autists either don't have it or get it within their last 5 items.

Fuck.

Rarest thing my pindle's dropped so far has been Templar's Might, which doesn't seem so great.

I made it, but I'm gonna wait until I have better gear to push past 90. Blizzard is too frustrating against single targets, especially ones that don't move.
