Gaming General / D2 Beginning Character Gear
« Last post by D2Addict on Today at 06:34:16 AM »
As I mentioned I have been dabbling a bit in 1.09 again. I was looking at how much stuff I have especially for lower levels. I stockpiled about everything you can think of including charms, jewels, rare rings and amulets.

Just wondering for something different.
1. Do you have 'typical' starting gear you use with a new character?

2. Do you have some godly low level items for characters?

3. I hosted a level 9 PvP tournament ages ago. It was using only what you found. I was wondering about how close I could get a charcter like this to perfection with all the junk. Stuff like reistances, weapon damage, magic find, health, mana etc. Would you want to try and post your charcter for whatever version?


I will post more of my answers a little later but here are a few items I found forgotten in my stashes.

No grail items in almost 3 weeks.  Found a 2nd Stormspire, now have 4 complete Bul-Kathos sets, found a 2nd Griswold's Valor (both have 30% MF), and this pretty good ring:

+27 Attack Rating
5% Life Steal
5% Mana Steal
Fire Resist +9%
Cold Resist +9%
Lightning Resist +9%
Poison Resist +30%
15% Magic Find

But otherwise it's been pretty hard to keep doing runs with nothing coming.  My lightning sorc even had 3 Gheed's Fortunes drop but all of them were either 20% or 21% MF and hers already has 33% (but it rolls 20-40).

Even though Blizz buffed the damage of most builds, the damage you can take at higher GR's is the same.
I found out the hard way that you can get one shot killed at those high level rifts. I suspect that we will
see added defensive changes in a lot of the builds. Having fun again!

Found it.  Impressive.  You are almost completely HC.

That is impressive.

I'll have to dig up your profile.

Demon Hunter Impale build is pretty tanky. You move from pack to pack and leave/avoid trash.

There are a couple of Monk builds as well that I enjoyed playing HC, particularly the wave of light. It's a screen killer and has decent toughness.

I had a HC Wizard a long time ago and really enjoyed playing it but that was before several major changes to the sets. I've tried DMO and it is tanky but finicky.

Another good option is to see what HC builds are pulling on the Leaderboards, particularly the GR level needed to get on the leaderboard since most of those folks won't have 4,000+ paragon.

One place where I have real trouble in HC is if I go for Kanai's cube too soon. There are so may little poison throwing bugs that they often drive me completely off the floor.

Lastly, if in doubt, run away.

Evil urns are so pretty.

I was wondering about the Gifts.  Is there one that is more suitable for HC?  I am leaning towards doing a Wiz.  As I have never gotten one to 70 before.

I ran a HC wizard last season and was able to hit the leaderboards early and often. I think I safely hit a 73 near the end without really focusing on pushing. Tal Rasha is very tanky once you have the jewelry, but apparently Vyr's is the starter set.

WD is also a very safe choice, due to all the minions that act as cannon fodder for you. IK for barbs is also a safe bet, since you get permanent immortals to keep you company.
