NECROPOOOOST

I'm out of seasonal and back playing non-season Hardcore, for fun and profit (and despair).

Currently tweaking/improving my Helltooth WD (moved up leaderboard from ~300 to ~200), still have a lot of gear improvements to make and Paragons to grind. I don't expect to top the boards but it is a decent measure of progress.

Also started a crusader and have just got up to lvl70, with the intention of using the Blessed Shield/Captain America build recommended by someone on the forum (sorry I forget who).

Anyone else playing offseason or HC?

Same here. My game is non-seasonal. I try to pick it up, but I get tired of doing the same thing over and over again.

It does get repetitive. You need goals, which the Seasons do well. I mostly try to improve my GR for each build and move up the leaderboards, with no expectation that I will ever be at the top end. It's a lot more fun playing with someone else though.

I am back to playing my HC Necro using Rathma set and skellies/mages. Currently sitting at T13/GR60 and having trouble pushing higher. Have like 1mil health and 1200+ resists, using Esoteric gem and Aquilla's Cuirass, but I still take sooo much damage.

Trying to get the Dayntee's Binding belt for the DR. Have been through at least 5000 bloodshards, and still haven't got it :(

Damage seems lacking too though TBH. Using the Jesseth set and cubed the scythe that gives dmg per point of essence, Endless Walk set (80-90% dmg most of the time). Getting the set scythe ancient will take some doing I think.

Anyone have tips? Or even build recommendations for the other sets? Reading the other set bonuses doesn't make them sound very exciting.

Not familiar with HC Necros, you may want to google what others are doing. In regards to getting the Dayntees, you may want to try 10-20 attempts at changing a rare belt into a Legendary in the cube. I make a lot of my gear that way.

Good luck!

Got the Dayntee's this morning ^_^ at the low low cost of another 3000 shards :)
Definitely helps with the toughness. Also did some rerolling and my resistances are now 2100-2200, have a bit more HP and a few more levels in my Esoteric gem. Feeling much safer, though damage still needs work. May need to commit to getting an Ancient Jesseth scythe.

Also started a HC barb, as I didn't have on yet. Ramped to 70 in no time using a Gem of Eased Furnace with Hellfire ammy/ring/Leorics crown. No gear to speak of yet, would like to do something other than whirling, as my SC barb has only ever been a whirler. Damn I do love whirling though.
