Completing some full act bounties for the caches is good around level 21, since that's when the Cain and Born sets can drop. Those kick up your XP quickly, which is always good.

Why would you do the same character on all three regions? It is not like you can share the gear across them.

Quickest to GR70 for me, so I'll unlock ancients faster.

I'm going with a monk on EU and America, and on Asia when I need a distraction. After that I'll use the ancient dex stuff to gear up a DH.

I still need to spend some quality time with the necro to find a build I enjoy, but that will have to be later in the season.

I'd be up for trying it out here and there. Of course my playstyle and gear may not be up to snuff, but I'll try not to suck on purpose.  ;D

That was awesome! I totally forgot about Templar's Might, and would have assumed it was Tyrael's. Whoops!

I've been doing some (a ton) of Pindle and Meph runs with my blizzard sorc. I don't remember much of what is considered good any more, but I did get Tal's Laquered Plate and an IK Stone Crusher, so those were cool. I also got Bartuc's for the 'sin I'm working on, so that was nice. :)

Don't forget about rings with 35% LL!  :D

Hey, I made an update to ATMA and I recommend you use that. It fixes compatibility with 1.13. Also, if you are serious about 1.07, don't forget the updated drop calculator as well. ATMA's drop calc for 1.07-1.08 was full of bugs but most are fixed now.

Thanks on all counts! I could use some LL rings right about now! :D

Meph is down and I'm slowly winding my way through Act 4. I finally have Blizzard in my arsenal, but I'm still very much a glass cannon.

ATMA works with 1.07, but IIRC crafted items will cause major problems with it.

Any idea which version of ATMA I should use with 1.07?

The Flayer Dungeon proved to be quite challenging and I died far too many times. My tireless mercenary Razan is a killing machine, but sadly he is incapable of walking in a straight line and gets distracted at every possible opportunity.

Onward to Lower Kurast!

I switched my merc for an Act 2 defensive merc.

I finally rescued the Horadric Cube and dispatched Duriel (after dying many many times!) and have made my way to act 3. I believe I'm level 20 or 21, and so far the only legendary or set item I have found is the Arctic Belt.

Runes have thankfully started appearing, and I look forward to hopefully making a runeword or two before too terribly long.

Is it  safe to assume that once you socket an item with something, there is no way to retrieve the gem/jewel/rune? I think so, but I'm not positive.

It's nice to see some familiar faces!

Thanks for the ATMA info! Andariel is dead and I have now made my way into act 2.

Which merc would you recommend for my sorc? I'm thinking Act 2 defensive, but I'd definitely love to hear some opinions.

My might sorc Tempest is now level 10 and is working her way through the Jail in act 1. I really need the cube to help cut down on my overflowing stash!

Does anyone have a link to ATMA? And does it work in 1.07?

I finally got the version switcher fired up, but I'm going to try to hang in 1.07 for awhile.

Sounds good.  Maybe you will finally finish off that HC Trapper that you were too scared to continue.


She got lonely after the rest of you louts got yourselves killed off.  :P
