I am doing PvM.
I am looking for improvements on my PvM account and characters.
1. MF Sorceress
I have a pure light sorceress (max nova, max lightning, max cl, max lm, rest into charged bolt) with frozen shield and warmth (and teleport, of course). She is doing fine as long as she have potions. The areas I clear are chaos,baal, and sometimes andy and meph. I do countess sometimes as well, and summoner for keys. She is doing all these areas OK.
Areas I am having problems with is travincial, but that is mainly because my merc keeps dying. The problem is, that he rarely activates is aura when teleporting to the council. I have tried going in and out of a TP as suggested but it doesn't work, is there any way to fix this? My gear is full tals with ist in orb/ptopaz, p-spirit,sojs,magefist and wt for 120 FCR breakpoint. But I sometimes to switch to unique gear, griffons,maras,eshutas,arach,sojs,chancies,wt,coh and p-spirit, because she kills faster, but unfortunately lacks the MF that full-tals provides. I haven't decided yet between these two. Merc gear is Andy's/Gaze, eFort AP, Infinity (non-etheral) cryptic axe. My merc is defiance, normal defense A2.
I am using him for mass rushing people in hell but also for keyrunning. I mostly using him for Niathlak because he can survive easily, gear is hoz with ber, shako with ber, maras,enigma,arach,sojs,waterwalks and mages. I don't feel like I am using him enough. Merc is A2 prayer with insight (etheral) cryptic axe, gaze and eFort AP.
3. Goldfind barb
I am using this guy for goldfinding in Travincial, he is not high level enough, but I feel like doing travincial with my sorc is pointless if a goldfind barb can do it better. Gear is 2xali baba lem lem, maras, ik helm with 2xlem, wealth, upped goldwrap, infernostride,chancies and 2x dwarfstar. Merc is Nightmare A2 offensive might, he is going to use Weakth, crown of thieves and some weapon. Skill points are max BO, 1 point shout, 1 point battle command, 1 point find item, I don't know what else from here.
My smiter is my uberkiller, although he is not done yet, I have some of the gear, including highlords, gores, draculs, verdungos, bul kathos, enigma, exile sacred targed, grief PB, some kind of helm (haven't decided yet). I heard that merc dies so no Merc for this guy. Skill points are max fanaticism, max smite, max holy shield, I don't know what else from here.
My idea is to have my sorc/pally do the keyruns, my uberkiller killing the ubers, my sorc doing the MF, and my goldfind barb to find the gold to gamble with, buy mercs and repair armors. Also sorc seems to be the fastest killing in cows, so I usually get leg with sorc, open with hammerdin, then go back into hell cows with sorc, that way I can kill king infinity times because my pally can always open it again, no matter how many times I kill king with my sorc.
Please read through this and see if you can spot some mistakes to fix, thanks.
