Gaming General / Re: So I fired up D2 again
« on: October 16, 2018, 01:54:25 PM »
I've been doing Countess, Summoner, and Nilithak runs for keys over the past few days.  I did 3 more uber runs and got a barbarian and 2 amazon torches.  I'm hoping I get a paladin torch next.  I also found another IK set armor while doing a random Pit run.  That's my 3rd one of those.  Still no Skulder's Ire, Arreats Face, or Homunculus, among other things.  That's RNG for you.

Oh yeah, almost forgot, I found some more noteworthy runes...1x Pul, 1x Um, 2x Mal, and 1x Sur.  That was my third Sur rune I've found in PlugY.  I used the other 2 to make a Ber.

I got my first single player torch last night!  It rolled +3 to sorceress skills and +16/+11 on stats and resists.  I was pretty happy with it being a sorc torch.  I have enough keys to get 3 more torches, so I will probably do that and hope for a paladin one.

Comparing the whole process of farming keys, getting the organs, and killing the ubers between single player using PlugY and on battlenet, I would have to say that the single player experience is slightly easier.  They are identical except for the uber Tristram fight.  The ubers don't spawn minions in single player, I'm not sure why.  That makes the fight against them a little easier.  When I have done this in the past on battlenet, the minions were more of an annoyance than an actual threat, but their absence does make it easier.

Conversely, the easiest part of the process on battlenet for a smiter (fighting Duriel to get Baal's eye) was the hardest part in single player.  On battlenet, it seemed like Duriel always spawned right next to the portal into his zone.  This meant that you did not have to search the area for him and fight the mobs inhabiting the zone, which made this fight very quick and easy.  This is a big deal because the zone spawns physical immune locust swarms that are a real pain in the ass for a smiter.  In the single player version, Duriel doesn't spawn in the same spot, so you have to search the area for him and deal with all those stupid locusts.  I actually had to give up on my first attempt in this area since I died in a huge swarm of those things, and had no way to get my body back.  I eventually respec'd to add 1 point to both zeal and conviction and use a lightsaber on switch to kill them.  It was a slow process, but it worked.  I am going to try to come up with another plan to deal with the locusts that could speed up the run in this zone.

About a month ago I found a Sur rune, which allowed me to cube a Ber rune.  I then had the runes to make the Infinity runeword, something I never did before in single player after all my time of playing this game.  I have spent the past month searching for the right base weapon to put it in.  I finally got lucky yesterday.  An unsocketed eth cryptic axe dropped in the ancient tunnels and I used the cube to socket it.  I was very happy that it got 4 sockets.  I've cubed probably 5 or 6 eth weapons (threshers mainly) trying to get 4 sockets, but I was always getting something besides 4.  I made the Infinity and it rolled pretty good with 321% damage mod.  I then cubed my 2 Gul runes into a Vex and made a Heart of the Oak runeword and got 38 reisists on that.  Now I have a decent lightning sorceress going.  I still need to find a 5 socket phase blade to make Grief in for my smiter.  Once I do that I can run the ubers for torches.

I've been playing D2 using the plugY mod for all of this since mid April of this year.  I've finished 1 character for each class.  In about 6 months I've found a lot of good stuff.  Still no hellfire torch yet though, and, surprisingly, I am still missing a number of unique items that I thought I'd have by now (Skulders Ire for one).  Yes, Max is right that the Ubers in PlugY are easier than on battlenet because they don't spawn minions, but I still think it will be fun to do on single player.  I've done it lots of times on Battlenet in the past, but never on SP.  D2 is still fun after all these years.

Collins is going to vote for Kavanaugh.  Now we will have 2 creepy men on the court,  one of them being a drunk too.  YAY!

It does look pretty good, and it has a ton of good reviews on Steam.

Say...Jeff...have you ever played BL2?
Nope.  Lots of people here seem to like it.

I hope he is not confirmed.  He raged out and got super political yesterday.  He even brought up the Clintons in his blame-fest...Amazing!  This man cannot be on the supreme court or it will be tainted for the next 30 years.  It's already tainted having that turd Clarence Thomas on it, but 2 creepy turds on the court at the same time is too much.

I do feel bad for his family, but not him.
