    I played Wolf3d to death, but never moved on to Spear of Destiny and Doom.

    My friend had Wolfenstein 3d. It was fun watching him kill stuff.

    Only us old people remember Doom....

    I'm 32 actually. That was a quote from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    Hurray, what a good initiative!

    Cleglaws pincers in normal act I...if that kind of luck holds you will probably have an upgraded witherstring or buriza before hell

    But won't idkfa be lonely if she has to play through the game with no other bowazon to banter and joke with?

    There is no better feeling as a Bowazon than scoring a pair of Cleglaw's Pincers early on for an untwinked character. Knockback + slow = good times.

    Re: idkfa - my bowazons journey [HC, p8, untwinked, single-pass]

    Thank you for your kind welcome everyone! Yes, idkfa is from doom, had a guardian barbarian named iddqd, so needed idkfa too!

    Act 3&4 Normal

    So the journey continues. Act 3, jungle i love it... not. But this time i kinda enjoyed it, got to level 30 quickly, Valkyrie and freezing arrow made things a little bit faster and easier. Found 3 soc poleaxe and made malice for my merc. Too bad it’s not eth, but thats the best i can get him at this time. And to be fair he’s not complaining too much about it, his damage is quite good, can tank and kill monsters without problem. Valkyrie also took some pressure of him. As for myself, i gambled a rare plated belt and and light plated boots, that boosted my resistances a bit. Also a long war bow with some more damage and a magic circlet with 41 mana. Low mana is the only thing that rally bothers me at this point. All in all act 3 wasn’t much of a problem, it was faster than act 1 or 2. 4 or 5 set items dropped on the way, but none of them was in any use. Councils and Mephisto were dealt with pretty fast, the later decided to drop me nothing:


    So level 32 and act 3 is done. Here are my stats and skills:





    Act 4 here i come! What a lovely place it is. No monster was left alive in the process. Izual was hopeless against freezing arrows, Haseen and Valkyrie. The two skill points i got from Tyrael were invested to strengthen Valkyrie, and against Diablo it proved to be a right choice. Before that, this is what i got from hellforge:


    Two perfect saphires went in mechanic’s crown of the mind. With around 160 mana i feel more comfortable now as drinking a potion is no longer needed every two shots. Before facing Diablo my ultra low fire resistance (15) was a little worrying, but everything went just ok. Cleared Chaos Sanctuary fast, and here he is Mr. Diablo himself! Haseen vent down fast after Diablo’s lighting attack, decided not to resurrect him, because that would have been a waste of precious gold. My Valkyrie did her job fine. While Diablo was busy fighting her, i was firing freezing arrows at him like there is no tomorrow. Couple runs back for mana and Diablo is defeated:


    I thank him for my new bow:


    Level 35 and act 5 awaits. My stats and skills:





    Act 5 Normal


    Well that was an easy one. Got through all the areas very fast, freezing arrow was doing miracles, leaving no one alive. Upgraded Haseen’s malice in a better weapon and got him a Sigon’s plate, yeah Sigon’s plate lol Also crafted myself an amulet with some hp, mana, and mana regeneration. Here’s idkfa in action against my favorite guy in the whole game:



    Poor lad had no corpses to explode.

    Battling ancients was a bit funny, because no matter what Korlic was always trying to jump on me, and had a bit of running to do. Baal was unexpectedly easy to kill, without a single rush to town. This is what he got me:



    Greedy bastard, but these gauntlets might be useful for now:


    So normal is completed without much trouble and at level 48 here are my stats and skills:


    Before taking on nightmare i’ll try my luck at gambling. Have some gold to spend and maybe will get something for myself or Haseen. Will probably make peace armor, maybe lore too. Right now i have around 50 mf, maybe using some perfect topazes might be a good idea for nightmare? Anyway, here she is:

    Nice write-up again. I doubt you'll have much trouble until late NM by using FA, I'm absolutely in love with that skill.

    However, psapphires in your helm instead of topazes? I would think you might want more mf for single pass and rely more on mana pots...but that's just me.

    Also, that is a beautiful bow. Fast bow base, ias, chance to cause monsters to flee, mana steal, and even pretty nice ed%...you hit the jackpot.

    Nice going! One of my favorite builds, safe and powerful. Let's hope you are able to make Insight soon (if you play RWM).
