    Guardian Ralin the Green

    Today I got my second Guardian: Ralin the Green, a necromancer.

    I played him in the Green with Envy tournament (Thanks, jgreg7, for that one!), he had the restriction that he and his merc could wear only set items in each slot once he found one.

    The build is a standard fishymancer (yes, I know... cheesy...), but without +skills, even a fishy isn't THAT easy. I experienced once again the weirdness of skellies (or better, the corresponding skills). We all know about diminishing returns for skills, but for skellies, it is quite the other way round... the skills above 20 make them extraordinary strong. Visit some skill calculator, and you'll see the huge increase in skellie power for every skill point above 20. In act 5, with 21 points in SM and RS, the ancients tore my army apart with ease. I looked for a skill shrine, and those +2 skills made all the difference I needed.

    Skills were placed in RS, SM and CE (20 each), a few in amp (5) to increase range, one in all other curses except lower resist, 5 in summon resist, 5 in revives, one in every golem and prereqs. Two points are unspent.

    Stats: Strength 70 (98 wth equip), Vitality 250, Dexterity 150, Energy 25.

    Resists in hell: 36/63/18/21

    Equipment:
    Cathan's Visage
    Cathan's Mesh
    Cathan's Seal x2
    Tancred's Weird
    Tancred's Crowbill
    Sigon's Sabot
    Sigon's Wrap
    Sigon's Guard (PEmerald)
    Iratha's Cuff

    On switch:
    Cleglaw's Tooth
    Cleglaw's Claw

    Merc (A2, Might)
    Isenhart's Case
    Naj's Circlet
    Hwanin's Justice (PEmerald)

    That equip gave me +1 skills and a total of about 130 MF (he didn't find anything extraordinary though). Charms were mostly resist ones, I didn't find really good ones... quite a few large and grand charms among these.

    After all, this tournament was fun. This char was my second attempt, the first one died in NM and was a pally (hammerdin).

    Nicely done Cormallon, getting a fishymancer through HC Hell wearing nothing higher than Classic set items is no easy task, I imagine. Congrats on the Guardian .

    Congrats on this one!

    A Guardian is already a great achievement, but a tournament guardian (who wears only set items...) is simply outstanding! I've seen in the tournament thread that you even didn't twink a starter set, right? That's just amazing...

    and gg on the skill shrine for the ancients! I wouldn't have thought of that :embarassed:

    Congrats on the Guard
    Which golem was your favorite? Also, haven't you found a single piece of some advanced set, or have you just kept those basic sets for their partial bonuses?
