What...you don't like my spelling? Dbrunski...lol. I was close.  A lot of the letters are the same.

My Sorc is in Act II. I have a lot of gear lined up including a Spirit Crystal sword.  Two Stealth armors (one for the merc).  I need to make a low level Insight, which I might have the base for.  I also have an Ancients Pledge.  I might be fully able to wear this stuff by level 25 so I am a bit away from that still.

Finished Act I Normal with my Barb, got bored already, started an Amazon.  /players 8 all the way.  Just kill Coldworm the Burrower in Act II Normal.  She was Level 23 on the way into the wormy place, and I was hoping she'd hit 24 before Coldworm, as that's when you can get Immolation.  Yep, it worked out.

Yeah, more Shared Stash would be nice, but I'm just digging the fact that I don't have to mule anything, and am working with what I have just fine.  I kinda like having to make choices on what to keep and what not to, because if I saved everything "just in case" then I'd spend hours looking everything over every time I levelled.  What can I use now?  This keeps things manageable.

Baal goes down in Normal, and of course dropped crap.  I did drop tp players 3 before taking on his minions, which was the very smart choice as I would have never gotten passed Lister and his cronies.  Must say not too bad for a barbarian with zero leech of either kind.

I was able to get GoMule for D2R to work!  Now I can mule properly and generate a grail report.

Congrats Flan!

Also, I was able to get to the river of flame waypoint in hell.  The Hellforge dropped me a Hel rune, so that sucked.  EDIT:  Finished Act 4.

Great news about GoMule.  I need to sort that out.

Hey all,

My sorc finished Normal, and I may do a handful of Baal runs to grab some XP and levels. I hung out with Pindle for quite a bit of time, grabbing maybe 8 or nine levels. It wasn't too bad, except for having to type /players8 every time I started the game. :D Don't know that I've ever used a Spellsteal until now, as well as some Frostburn Gauntlets, which are really appreciated for their mana boost.

I got GoMule sorted out.  For people new to the app I suggest a youtube video to explain how it works.

I got my Sorc to Normal Hell.  Just switched to Blizzard.  It was taking me a bit to get to used to the skills.  For some reason I don't feel fluid with the build yet.  Getting better.  I will help when I start being able to sustain mana better.  I have an insight waiting once I hit level 27.

Holy crap I found a Cham rune in the Glacial Trail!  It is the 2nd one of these I have found.  The first was in the original D2 PlugY.  The bad thing is it is a Cham and not 4 Bers or 2 Jahs.  I'll probably save it and hope for another to cube a Zod.

I'm progressing through Act 5, currently lvl 83.  My gear is terrible and my merc is soft.  I'll probably stop in the Ancients Way because I am not ready to take on the Ancients yet.

Holy shit Jeff.  What a find.  Too bad you can't cube it backwards.

Congrats mn4nu, great find!

I've decided no point in P8 the whole way, so traveling through NM on P3 and at the Inner Cloister now.  Ran Countess for awhile to get some runes and have a King's Grace Flamberge and a decent rare gladius now.  Almost died to 2 packs of skeleton archers, one was MSLE and the second was HF CE, but I bravely ran away to regroup and separate them.

My sorc is about to reach NM Meph.  The plan is to farm for equipment.  Mainly for the mercs.  They just die too quickly. If I get enough good stuff I might go back to the Zon that is at Meph in Hell.  The merc dies on the way to him at this point.

Great work, folks! I'm joining the party camping at NM Meph for a while, looking for an improvement in gear. I don't have much MF gear, though, so hopefully some of that will drop before too long.
