Tried some searches came up sort of blank..
This is my only character, new, so no supergear yet..
Looks like i cant farm too much in nightmare, so I need to go on in hell..
Problem is, my character is 60 now, i got an act5 normal barbarian merc.
I put my points as following:
20 points blizzard
20points glacial spike
1 in fire/cold mastery.
1 static field
my gear is pretty bad..
just got skin of vipermagi, so that may help with elemental damage in hell.
i had a plain 600defense armor before that.
Anyways, basicly when i try to play in hell, i just die.
Im a little low level to be in hell yet i guess, and my gear is not up to it.
I try to use some MF, have a about 97MF so far.
Basicly, my question is, which elemental school should i choose for PVM, pure PVM ( im playing single player)
I noticed lightning was doing most damage, but had lowest average damage.
I cant use the nice infinity runeword as im not in ladder.
I got a lot of runes, but nothing higher than lum yet.
So, should i keep putting points into fireball for now, to get that damage up?
Or should i reset again and go into lightning as main, with cold as backup?
My stats are about as following..
up to 100 in strenght total.
50 in energy total. 75 with gear.( this is way too low, especially with warmth only at level 1)
i got about 110 total in vitality, and about 110 points unspent..
I just reset my character, cause i had no alternative damage, and my merc sucks, so he cant take out groups of monsters which are immune to cold.
My fireball did only like 70-80dmg before reset. now its 260..
This i should keep putting points in to vita, or go higher in energy? i have 2 more resets.
but would prefer not to have to use them..
i heard SOJ dropped mostly off andariel in NM, so farmed her a bit today to no luck..
I found a nagel ring earlier though.
Drops are the same in singleplayer as on closed battlenet?(i played there before, but those characters are long gone)
Anyways, thanks for your time! Much appreciate it if anyone has some advice.
