Well I got my wish.



It drop Eth.  I did the cube recipe to get the four sockets.  A 1 in 6 chance to get the four sockets and I lucked out.  Insight made.

Maggot Lair done.  Duriel down.

In the Jungle, the Might Jungle, where the little shits don't sleep tonight.  Awful Jungle map.  Finally made it to the Flayer Jungle way point.  Need to find the dungeon next.

yep..that is the ticket.

I have used this recipe a ton.  And it has paid off.  FYI a monarch shield can have up to 4 sockets.  My understanding is that despite that the game rolls for 1 through 6.  4, 5, and 6 all mean that you get four sockets.

My Zon has been running Countess to get my mid level runes up, and I've nabbed a couple of Ums, Mals and got a Pul as well.  She's pretty quick, so can get through runs pretty fast, especially on P1.

I've done a lot of runs, so it does pay off.  Got an Ist last night, but it was from a boss pack on my way to her and not the Countess herself, and a Pul from a chest on the way to her.  Also getting the occasional unique/set that helps fill in the collection.

And just got a Jah off some random in the desert!  Halfway to duel Dream, which are a couple of the builds I hope to make.

That is f*ing sweet.


You want dual Dreams for a build?  That vaguely sounds familiar ... tesladin?

Tesladin and Sorc.  Obviously I want Infinity as well, but that is much further down the road.  Too bad I can't cube the Jah backwards and get two Bers, I'd make that first.

Thanks, it was a bit shocking.  Also bagged another Ist on a Countess run, from a pack behind her.

Hit Matriarch with my Javazon, but Act 5 was painful with all the LIs.  Tried cows at P1, took way longer than expected and I don't kill them very quickly.  Guess I'll continue the Countess for now.

Lately I have just been running Meph with my Sorc.  I have a really good Meph map right now.  What I really want is get a good Meph and LK map.  Probably a pain to find one.  I am at 200 MF without weapon switch, over 300 with.

I should probably push through with my Pally and pat him.

I've been doing a lot of Meph running too Geoff.  Still haven't found anything that will really help my zealot though.  I need a GFace, HoZ, and Gore Rider for starters.

In the meantime I started a summon necro.  He's in Act 2 normal right now.  Trying to get to lvl 24 before Duriel so I can have access to Decrepify.
