    Introducing Guardian Skunky-Stix (yep, another one...)

    Well, I thought it would be a while longer before Guardian #3, since I originally planned not to risk my lightning fury zon's life (she's my Countess runner, so it'd be no fun to lose her). But then I decided to go for it anyway, and Skunky-Stix reached her final goal tonight. I had to reroll the Ancients several times (like, a dozen at least)... I kept getting FE, or more than one lightning immune, or both at the same time. Finally, though, I got a decent roll, and after that the Ancients went down quick and easy. The trip to Baal was a little tricky, since level 2 of the Keep featured both gloams and oblivian knights... but level 3 was a cakewalk, as was the Throne. Baal was a snap, too (gotta love charged strike, a good valk, and a merc with a Kelpie). And the rat finally dropped me something real: my first SP Gheed's Fortune Balanced out, of course, by four useless rares and a Cathan's Seal

    So three classes down, four more to go. Unfortunately, three of those four (pally, barb, druid) are melee builds... I can't imagine they'll all be so successful. Also, none are further along than the Spider Forest (tesladin and FB/orb sorc), so none will become guardians for at least a week or so.

    Here are Skunky-Stix's final stats... nothing special, gear-wise, except for the Nature's Peace ring, courtesy of a random fallen boss in the Black Tower.

    Congrats. Nice work. Nice skillers. Now don't even think about Ricrestoni's suggestion. Melee characters should be played in melee mod! At least Barbarian and Paladin.
    GL with the rest of you HC septavirate.

    Hmm... lol, of course they can't. They must've been on level 3. Anyway, they were in there somewhere Luckily, they weren't too big on casting IM, so they only iced my merc once. The gloams on 2 were an issue, though, since they're both poison and lightning immune... had to sit there and jab the buggers. Ick.

    @ ric: I had a windy, but he died to FE Bremm Sparkfist at level 80 :( I've been thinking about a thrower... if I manage to find some decent weapons for one, I may give it a shot. My pally might do OK... he has a Demon Machine on switch, so if he has to he can keep his distance. Fingers crossed...
