Started a Plaguezon in a HC tourney that I'm doing.  Level 25 with one dead Duriel.

I bit the bullet and cubed two more Surs to make Infinity, and happy with the results with 317% ED.  I was a bit forced to do it, since I screwed up my excellent LK map and didn't feel like rerolling.  Took my Zon out mooing a couple of times and got a Fal, but she's not geared right for that yet.  I'll bring a Griffon's from legacy forward and a few other things to make things smoother.  Did P5, and it was fairly easy.

Haven't been able to play as much, but still can't get that last elusive rune - might end up cubing soon just to be done with it.  Had a decent might last night with a Fal, Pul and Um, but really just want to finish off Infinity and try some cow runs.

For my last Ber I had to cube some many good runes to make it.  Overall worth it.  But I am running LK again to get a Lo.

Edit: I did my manage to get my first Torch.  A lousy Druid one but hey.  A torch.

I can cube a Ber now, I have enough Surs.  However, for the builds I want a Sur is more valuable than a Ber at this point so I do not want to cube them until I would still have enough Surs.  The HS/HF Paladin that you linked to is one that has been on my list since the start, long before the 2.4 announcement.  There are also a couple of other builds I want to do with HF, and 2.4 makes them much more viable.

Congrats on the torch, even if it's not great.  I think I will take a legacy Paladin and convert him to a smiter eventually to get torches, but runes are still my priority right now.  Found another Gul in LK, which is good but not quite good enough.

Still haven't found the Ber/Sur to finish Infinity, but did find a Nos' and another Harley.  Got some decent runes as well, but would love that last piece.

I heard they fixing Leap Attack by speeding it up, as opposed to the Matrix-like slo-mo.  That will be a big improvement for me.

You're on a roll Flan!

Thanks, found a few more Guls as well.  RL has intruded so haven't had a chance to play much or post.

Yesterday was a good day in LK with an Arreat's and another Harley found.  On the rune front, found a second Ohm, a Gul and 3 Mals.  Will probably end up making a HotO fairly soon since I appear to have lost mine from legacy.  Not needed right now, but will be useful when I stop running and start up some new toons.

Thanks.  Found an Ohm last night, but my brain didn't register what it was until after I had picked it up.  Now just looking for a Sur or Ber for Infinity and to see how cows would go.

Haven't watched the whole thing, but I imagine Death or Oath could be used as well - and I have both from legacy.

Found Sur number 6 after 3 more days of LK runs.  Still isolating because of covid, so I still get more play time than usual.  I did cube 2 of them to make my first Ber, so halfway to Infinity for a myriad of builds.

I updated a legacy hammerdin to D2R with the idea to run CS for high runes.  I think he's built decently, but I just suck at throwing hammers.  Not very fast (except Diablo drops quickly), so just a waste of my time to keep trying.  Back to LK and hope for more good luck, though it has fled me since I hit the 3 Surs.

That is insane.  It took me between 40 to 60 hours of LK running to get something similar.

You might want to check that out as it is about an Auradin with dual Dream.

That build is my long-term plan, which is one of the reasons I have not cubed my Sur runes to make Infinity.  I had not planned on using Doom for the merc, the rest is going to be expensive enough lol.  I would like a Frenzier with HoJ and Dragon armor, especially if they buff Holy Fire in the patch.

Wow!  Congratulations on the four Sur runes!  That is freaking awesome.  A good quandary to have!

Thank you Sur, may I have another?  As a matter of fact, I can.  Bagged 3 of them in under 24 hours, plus a Gul.  Crazy luck after a long stretch of meh.

I think you should wait until you get an ethereal one.  Ideally a Thresher or Giant Thresher for the speed.  The crushing blow on it means that speed is important.  I gave my merc a Treachery to increase the attack speed and I am loving it. 

I might have one if you want me to send a mule character to you with it.

Quote from: Wrote this in Discord
You were curious about the Infinity.  I just finished a P3 run were I hit - Pit, Cows, Chaos Sanctuary, Andy, Pindle, Eldretch (sp) and I only had to fix my Javs once.  I probably got a bit lucky with the bosses that spawned in that I didn't have to park any of them.  From time to time I run into a but that is still LI but it is somewhat rare.  I had one that was also Stone skin and I literally had to sit back to let my merc, very slowly, kill him.  I switched my Merc to Treachery and it was/is an awesome choice.  It is actually super fun to be able to do almost all areas of the game.  Problem areas/monsters are Nilly and Glooms.  My resists suck on this character.  That said I stand back and kill most things before they get close.  Even on P3.  For Nilly I really need the RiP mod.  For Glooms I really need to have better resists and switch to Thundergods.  Cow King can be tough as he can spawn with some crazy mods.  All in all I am glad to have made the Infinity.

After I wrote that I did another run and I probably fixed my Javs during a TP back to town.  Still having to fix my Javs a lot less now.

I am sure I have a Thresher or GT in an old stash, but thanks for the pffer.  I was just wondering about making it in a normal weapon so characters can use it as well and not have it a strictly merc weapon.

Now I get into my conundrum.  After not much luck in LK, I got two Sur runes in about 20 runs - which brings me to 4.  I could cube and make the Infinity as discussed and boost my Javazon, or I can cube even higher to get the Jah to make my dual Dream Tesladin and Sorc.  While neither would have a merc with Infinity, I think they would both be easy enough to play without.

Hi, Flan!  I'm glad you are keeping the D2 fun going with your son.  We're playing a bit of 1.07 on my computer and my boy has an assassin at level 10.

Thanks for the intel!  Did you used to be Flanimal, back in the day?

Cheers!

Good lord, age is catching up since I thought I had replied to this lol.  Yes, I used to be Flanimal many moons ago.
