    First MF Blizz Sorc, need some help

    This is my first post here, so hi everyone!
    I play Diablo 2 since its release, but have little experience on Battle.net. I started again last week after 3+ years break. My two chars are ~70 lvl Fishymancer and Blizzard Sorceress for mf purposes. [end of boring background]
    I have many questions on various topics, so I decided to separate them:

    1) Getting started. I got rushed thru Hell yesterday, but my blizz sorc is too weak to stay alive even on nightmare difficulty. I have next to nothing in terms of items (waterwalks, frostburn, ali baba are the best from the pack), but every Mephisto run on NM is highly dangerous and takes long. How can I raise my resistances for cheap? They're all negative.

    2) Gear value. I found some minor set items (boots from IK, Griswold helmet, Ondal's almighty), but I don't if they're worth anything. I just found item prices for whole sets.

    3) MF gear. What gear would be sufficient for blizz sorc to start Mephruns on hell? Should I aim full Tal Rasha set, or just Goldwrap + Nagel Rings?

    4) Available games. This one might sound silly, but... I'm wondering if games listed after selecting JOIN button are the only non-password games in entire realm (in my case, Europe ladder)? It's odd, there are only 15 or so games listed and it's confusing for me.

    Thanks in advance for your insight!

    First of all, welcome to the forums, hope you have a nice stay! *steals wallet*

    1) What level is your sorc? As far as items go, I have a spare Wizardspike if you want (no skills but great res and fcr) and a Tal Helm (life/mana/resistances, if no one buys it on the trade forum here) *redflux or pm me

    2) 3) => nothing to say here

    4) Defending on what you want to do, there aren't a lot of games, but you can refresh the list by selecting create game /join game, sometimes the list changes a little, but you won't get 100 games orso in it.
    I think at this point, you better play solo, team up with friends, try to convince peeps from here, or randomly join the open baalruns.

    Thanks for your insight, Dawnmaster, it's good to know there are people who still play D2 and help the newcomers.
    My sorceress just reached 71 level after a couple diaruns. Her HP lies between 750-800, resistances on nightmare are slightly negative (i was just leveling, no mf running), and she deals ~1600 dmg with Blizzard. Basic fcr and fhr, too.

    Another question: can I trade virtually anything via incgamers trade forum? Are there many people still active? :-) Pardon me if that's silly.
    Please check the PM, Dawnmaster.

    He actually mentions that in his openingspost at 4)

    (not the softcore part, but I think it's safe to assume that hardcore peeps would specify their hardcoreness)

    I thought he was! But I coudlnt find it a 2nd time in his text! hehe

    NVM!


    If youd like a few starters items, I can fix that for you. The ladder will end in about 7weeks, so its not the best time to deny free items!

    When I farm NM, I usually already have these items, or almost all anyways:

    4os Polearm Weapon for merc, Insight
    Spirit Sword (Broad Sword or Crystal Sword preffered) (2sk/22vita/89-112mana)
    Rhyme Shield (25@/50eg/25mf)
    Lore Helmet (+1sk/30Lres)

    Shopped Gloves and Boots with 17-25 mf. Easily shopped in A5!


    Ill be online after 21:00 CET tonight, if you want a few basic items, send me a PM!

    Re: First MF Blizz Sorc, need some help

    I should have a few items floating around for you too to get you up to speed. Feel free to PM me this evening/weekend, if the two gents above haven't beaten me to the punch, and I will help out.

    As Archone said, some simple runewords like rhyme, insight and spirit can be very useful. Try countess runs to gather the runes if you need. Getting help rescuing Anya in Norm, Nm and Hell provides a quick and easy boost too. And dont be afraid to pack a few resistance charms if you still struggle a little.

    As for killing Mephisto in hell, once you get to him you can kill him quite easily with a Blizz sorc using the moat trick, although if it takes a while you would probably be more efficient staying with nm runs until you get a little stronger.

    7 weeks? Are you serious?

    This ladder started Nov 6 iirc. So that means the ladder will end around May 6!

    They changed the ladder system to 6 months? Iirc they reset it once per year (in the old days), or even after 14 months.

    But 6 May is possibly the worst date for me... Baby is expected around 2 May...
