Yes, I finally saw the end of Hell Diablo. It took a fight but the lizard is dead. Many thanks for the good advice I got on this forum. It helped a lot. In the end he went down after killing my merc about 3x to 4 skellies and 5 revives. Just kept hitting him with decrep and new gumbies and poisoning him with my pus spitter crossbow(switch weapon +2 skills and the poison helps with quick healing critters).
Best of all I am on my way to wealth for Diablo dropped me. Da da da dum. Berserkers hatchet lol. Well, he also dropped a gold serpentskin, skullsplitter, and the scalper. I found a rockstopper sallet on the way to him. Not too bad. I added some uniques to my collection. Soon I will have all the uniques which are worth nothing. lol. Anyway thank you all for your help. I can finally begin dieing in act 5 hell.
noodle, I am a level 84 fishymancer. maxed skellies and mastery, 4 mages, 15 revives, maxed ce and assorted curses. I play ladder on useast. I almost always play alone. I like the idea of the ladder only recipes and runewords although I have never really been able to use them. I can dream can't I.
Right on! Sounds like you're goig down the right track. I play exclusively Single Player, myself. There's a mod that allows all the ladder runewords, plus I don't have to worry about lag or characters expiring, or any nonesense like that. I made the switch from US West when I realized I was only playing by myself anyway - might as well be able to manipulate the players setting, keep the same map, and use ATMA for muling, I figured. Best of luck to you as you move into Act V!
