I didn't mention them because I didn't even carry them to the next act and didn't take notes. The Pluckeye was totally useless and the Iron Jang Bang would have made a decent weapon and more damaging than my sword at that time except it needs 2 hands. Diablo dropped another rare pike, IIRC, it had max 80ish dmg but I chose to carry the one Hep dropped.
Didn't use the imbue because the ruling on that was unclear then. Hmm, I should check what low lvl imbues are good and include that in the guide. Definitely, not weapons... should be something that will see less wear and tear.
> What's your tenative skill plan for the future? I, for one, would stay away from WW. IMO Leap Attack and Bash are much better options...Although they are slower, you'll get more bang for your buck.
I have 5 more lvls to decide on WW. If not right at 30, I would save some points just incase. One bat ring is not going to cut it without a reliable weapon so I think the decision will be based on another bat more than anything. I was pleasantly surprised Phobia was kill stuff in multi NM 2, so yes Bash and LA will be "enough" WW does have its own merits especially when dealing with LEB...
There's a lvl 26 requirement on the pike. I think I am
halfway or 2/3 to lvl, my main sword would be broken by then... I know Blood Moore would be no problem but the monsters are way faster and travels in packs upon Cold Plains. I'll give the pike a try after I see how much I can push my HP. IE, how fast amI getting hit and how many hits I can take before it goes below the safety margin.
I am working on a summary for Normal diff and a pregame thoughts for NM which should give everyone a better feel what it was like. But nothing beats real experience....
So go and put some IM time in
Try some solo runs and sign up for some coops...
PS: Cy, Charis and I have a team to be started on Fridays. I would have time for one more team atm, anyone interested.
PPS: Charis and Cy - Maybe we should move the game to Weds because of weekend lag?
