    It looks possible. Are you going to use a merc?

    The only issue I see is IAS. Bears need lots of IAS on weapon.
    Safety crafts could be good in some slots. (boots,amulet)

    I have considered using a merc, but...
    ...should I go for an Aura merc, or something else (for style points)
    ...should the merc also wear crafted items (to be true to the concept)

    About the safety crafts, the Amulet is actually a good idea, can't see how I missed that one! ^^
    But I'm still doubting about the boots?
    Would it be usefull at all to get 1 item with minimal damage reductions? I'd rather go with 3 life mods then?

    EDIT: I know IAS is a problem, still not sure what to do here, gloves can get 20% ias, weapon can get 40% ias, is this enough, or should I try to solve my problem by socketing a crafted weapon with shael (this is balancing on the border qua keeping true to the concept imo), or perhaps equip my merc with something that has an aura with ias (if such exists? and is still true to the concept?)

    The merc would have to wear crafted items really. You would obviously benefit from the aura, but the barbarians bash attack would be useful too.

    Just a headsup on crafting: you can't craft swords or bows, infact, the only crafteable merc weapon is a safety spear.

    I can use skills and "intelligence" to work my way through the world of diablo with medium-crap gear, a merc on the other hand will die so much, it's either go without in hell, or equip decent gear on him.

    You can craft different items on single player?

    Missa understand.

    I've started the LudicrousCraft druid yesterday, played a few hours (and this morning half an hour before work ^^)
    At first glance it's hard, very very hard, I'm lvl8 now and still can't wear any items, half the items are not even available for crafting at my lvl, and those crafted (from lvl1) are minimum lvl14 and 20+
    I haven't died yet, but I foresee lots of it in the nearby future

    The only way I'm getting any progress at all is because I'm using the FireClaw synergy Firestorm (I consider respeccing as cheating as I could easily surround myself with wolves and let them do the killing for me)
    Secondary problem is that although my merc raises the killing speed, I spend a lot of time keeping her alive with potions (crafting armor for her is pointless as it'll have lvl20+ anyway and by then I'll have an aura merc)

    EDIT:
    He's lvl14 and finally made it into act2, Andariel went down suprisingly fast (compared to the regular creeps and bosses), got myself an act2 combat merc and equipped my first items: 2 crap rings and crap gloves ^^
    Also crafted items for my merc, but sofar it can't equip anything, so it's even more useless than the archer (anybody knows how to trigger the aura? it doesn't seem to come up)

    My werebear killing speed is ridiculous (no weapon), but firestorm still works fine, however with no life/armor, I'm drinking so much potions I seem like an alcoholic
    And for some reason I keep encountering double or tripple packs with a resurrecter, or even 1 or 2 bosses (only real problem is when they move fast, or have a boss with elemental enchanted)

    Re: The ludicrous crafter

    Appearantly self crafting is not an option upon start because I can't access the items until my level is high enough (at lvl20 I still couldn't gamble/buy/find the minimum armor needed), so for the moment I've halted my project, going to gather enough supplies and try again (thinking about buying the items with another character and letting a lvl1 mule craft them)

    I think I'll have to come up with a new plan: allow respec (since I was only using firestorm which wasn't an attack, since bear was still not viable at lvl20 even while "cheating" a little by using the weapon I crafted for my merc) and with other skills to speed up progress I can start wearing crafted items?

    This way I'll still only use crafted items, but atleast I'll be able to actually do something in the game.

    What do you guys think?
