    Okay, here's how it all went down. I made a blizzard sorc shortly before this one and had a friend rush me to diablo who I wound up dying to. This character's life was going to be devoted tot he mfo, so with only a few days to prepare, I wasn't sure if I was even up to it anymore. Then, FoE offered a rush and some starter gear such as dual spirit and low level rares. So after he got me past diablo and to eldritch, I was ready to grind the levels, and did eldritch/pindle until maybe 45-48. I also did a few baal runs, too. Then, I rushed to NM meph, where I was hoping to find vipermagi armor, and didn't. I also had a perfect (almost?) map that took me 1 teleport through an annoying corner to get to lvl 3. Of course I got bored of that pretty quickly and rushed to eldritch/pindke again and levelled to about 70. Then I rushed to ancient tunnels, and began preparing myself for the mfo (in other words, I ran until I was level 84, iirc). I grew very comfortable with my map, and then ran like crazy for the mfo.

    After about 50 hours in those tunnels, with a map reset in the end because I found an eth skullders and wizardspike, and needed a respec, I set out for maybe 5 more hours on the last day. I placed, second, which I was very happy with, since it was nearly untwinked, and my mf started at 129 ;).

    I checked my grail status beforehand (17%) and afterwards (58%) and I'm very happy with this. Almost all of the good items that I found were items I've never seen before, including windforce. I also found a Lo and a Ber, so you betcha i'm going to make a strafer with fortitude and windy. First I need to motivate myself to work on my sept, though :/

    I recorded the final battle, too.

    Grats on the first Guardian, and quite nice with the Lo and Ber drops. Best of luck with the with the Strafer when you make her.
    I'm surprised you never got a better amulet. It's not bad, but could be much better, especially since your resists are already fairly solid.

    Aha yeah. At first I was using smoke up until I found wizard spike, so my resists were quite a bit worse (my rings also didn't have resists until towards the end, either), so I was just playing it safe. I'm pretty sure I gambled the amulet, too, and it was continuously a small improvement from whatever else I had. I was definitely hoping for a mara's, but oh well.

    If and when I complete my sept that will be 7 more guardians, and then there is my singer for the slow and steady tournament, and that strafer I will eventually make.

    TheNix, Yeah! Try hardcore :p You've been around for long enough already! Have you made fa hc char for tournaments or anything?

    I've got one going in Shinty's Eddings tourney, a level 29 Nerco, but I'm leaving him until Shinty makes a re-appearance. I hope he makes a re-appearance.

    Right, I remember you starting one. Hopefully he reappears.

    Thanks! There were countless NDEs. Most of which were because I would be standing just within the range of a LE CE boss, and I would be hit by invisible waves, I think. I also had a few times where I teleported into a might or fanat group when I was already amped, unknowningly (uncommon spawn location, for example). I thought it was kind of funny that I guardianed her at level 93. That must be somewhat uncommon.
