Hello my old friends and compadree's!
I'm back after, erm, a nine month holiday?! Gee, doesn't time fly when your not playing D2?
So, what have I been doing since achieving level 99 with my Pally? Plenty. Firstly game wise, well I've been playing;
- Titan quest. Got four characters thru to end game in hell difficulty. Ice shard druid, Warefare/defence, warfare dual wield/spirit & Hunting/nature bow shooter)
- Mass effect 1,2 & 3. I, am, KROGAN!!! Lol.
- HellGate london. Dabbled a bit. Got two characters up to level 35 odd.
- Need for speed. Hot pursuit, underground, good fun crashing exotic cars at 300kmh+
- Portal. Love getting thru this game every now and then.
To be honest, I know very little about the game apart from the obvious 5 characters, release date and online only thing. Still, It seems appropriate to me to buy so i've pre ordered a collectors edition. I'll play and give it a shot. I am deliberately avoiding reading anything about the game, this is I hope, should help myself enjoy the game as a relative "virgin" so I can enjoy discovering everything for myself.
Basically the day I hit level 99 with my pally, I haven't fired up D2 for months untill about two weeks ago I had a bit of a look see at some characters and a quick five minute game here and there. Amazing how antiquated the game looks after months of high def eye candy from later games and the Xbox 360.
The biggest surprise was when I cranked up Gomule and looked at my stashes and the items that I mindlessly dumped in there from my pally. Not too many unique/set items thanks to the 0% mf, but the runes...... A quick calculation revealed that there was enough runes to cube up to a Ber or even a Cham. I broke out some Gems and the cube and yep, cubed up a Ber and change.
That was a bit of a surprise. I never looked at my Rune stash, apart from noting the item count, 160 odd runes. But when I scrolled thru them and noticed multiple Ist's, Vex's, Gul's, etc, well gee.
So I spent a couple of weeks wondering what to do with them. Only two choices really. Infinity or CoH. But I think i'll go with Chains of Honor. Useful to my current project a Hydress and useful to my Eletemplar too and a couple of other characters not doubt. I am still a bit short for the Infinity and I don't want to wait untill I find the rune value I need.
So i'll be back into playing D2 again soon I think. First thing I'll be doing is grabbing four particular runes and my best 4 socket Archon plate. Then I'll be deciding what to do with it first. Diablo Sanctuary runs or Aussie bbq Hydra time!
So, pop in and say heya everybody to old asmo!
