6 of my 7 chars are to the Outer Cloister, but I was right in remembering that Lightning, such a good skill, in vanilla, stinks big time in ES. No way on p5.....tried the Mauseleoum.......I was struggling ever since the Cold Plains WP....eventually just capitulated. Amazing how weak Lightning is.....Charged Bolts are ok, but not against Dark chicks!

Back to the drawing board, with the Sorc. Kinda tired of the whole Blizzard/Meteor gig, though, so got to ponder. Not sure if there's a different viable Sorc, though, that you can learn on in HC. I know Tsuru said Enchantress was viable, but not so sure. Hydra, I know some have done, but I have doubts. Gotta ponder.

Edit: Decided to go with my original idea, Enchantess....what the hell......however, already killed one off.....*(^)*%*(% Misshapen champion pack in Den.....shoulda just Saved and exited, and tried again...but no....had to try....death. Started again.....funny.....two straight boss packs of Misshapen. Forget it. That's some bad luck. Don't think I saw any of that, with my sturdier characters. Those are way too hard for level 3 Sorceress! I'll keep restarting until I don't see any.

Sorry for your loss Billy,Lightning Sorc takes more time to make than Immo and Blizz Sorc,but yes any kind of Sorc is Viable,just pump your VIT instead of ENE,keep both STR and DEX on 50 until you have decent killing power...

I've never tried Immolation....guess I've been scared off by the the character pages that show very minimal damage....I know there were build writeups on those, from like 2006, or whatever. I figured they got nerfed along the way. Maybe it ramps up somehow, but the table doesn't make it look so. If I've been wrong, after my imminent Enchantress's death, maybe I'll try one.

I'm so mad, I almost felt like smashing my keyboard.....yet another Sorc death. I think sometimes you get maps that must cause a greater chance for Misshapen? I saw them every single time I went to the Den, including the earlier times I mentioned. No boss or champions, for a long while, though, so we got to level 7, and had good luck with getting the Auto boots and belt. Last time, what do I see....Extra Fast Misshapen boss pack. I'm so *(%*(%^(%% stupid, instead of heading for the exit, I ran forward. Then, a boss pack of Dark Stalkers....got surrounded, and couldn't run...no chance. Suppose I should blame myself.

I'd really not even begun, having just gotten Enchant, and no good weapon....was using a 2 socketed dagger, but had yet to see one single, solitary, damage gem:( So, I'm going to try again, and I'm going to learn when to run!

When she dies, and if not early, I know she will eventually, then maybe I'll try the Immo Sorc. I've done enough Cold and Meteor ones.

Edit:

Holy *^*))*%! I just started her anew....go out to the Blood Moor....Gargantuan boss pack.....about face! Run around the other way......another of the same! As I'm running back to town....a 3rd Gargantuan boss pack starts coming from the side. You have got to be kidding. Can't say I've seen a harder start than that! I've quit on Spearwomen boss packs, etc, but nothing like this. After my Den of Evil experience, I'm beginning to wonder if I'm just not destined to do this character!

Edit 2: Just realized how stupid I am....I could have teleported right out of the situation in the Den. I'm just so un-used to using it, I didn't even think of it. Going to have to remember that!

Go at it relaxed,with no rush,and it'll go by itself,there is no shame in falling back,and keep to players one until you get some better gear,instead of Autolicus,you might try Rubys in Boots and Helm for life,maybe even Arcanas Set would be a good starting point...I am used to getting thru Normal with only Gemwords and Magics,any build can do Normal with those items if you know what type of monster is the most dangerous to a specific build,every Char got weaknesses unfortunately...

Next time, Moor was fine......Spearwoman boss pack, but we divided and conquered. Level 4...enter Den....take out first few....here we go again....boss pack of skellies and champion Misshapen. Forget that!

I just don't get it....next time, another champion pack of Misshapen. None of my other chars, including my first Sorc, saw it this hard, in the Den....now, it's constantly.

Edit: Wow....yet another Sorc death.....this same one lived.....matter of fact, was having a fun time, and seeing the potential in the Enchantress.....speed kills. Dual emerald dagger was laying everything low, most of the way through the tunnel to rescue Cain.....bad luck befalls. Extra fast Horned Demon boss pack, and trapped against a rock, and my dumbass self forgot teleport, yet again. Not sure why I can't remember this, other than the fact that I've rarely ever used it. Maybe I'm just a terrible Sorceress.:(

Hmmm,Enchant also works with Ranged weapons,and with a squishy Char like a Sorc it's better to stay out of monsters Melle Range until you got ES and some decent life...Immo Sorc is tough until you get Fire Mastery,stick to p/1 since there is no restriction on player setting in Normal Areas,only the Special Areas are to be run on p/4 and above...

If you don't first succeed, try, try, again. My Sorceress sits safely at the Outer Cloister.

The Tower was no easy task, either. My earlier failings helped a lot. Many times, death could have happened. I've not seen a harder Tower run, that I can recall. 2nd Floor, Might Enchanted skellies, grouped with Champion skellies, and archers...right around the corner from the starting stairs! I used teleport there! Just to free myself and let healing happen. There must have been 15 monsters right there, that were all Might enchanted!!!! Then, on the next level, two boss packs, in a hallway, that I was able to siphon through a doorway. Then, another boss pack and extra group, in a room, that I had to siphon through another doorway. 5th level, boss pack of Crushers in the left room, Wailers behind them. On the right, boss pack of Horned Demons. And, in the Countess's area, about 10 Crushers, it seemed, in addition to her crew.

It was crazy. I'm sure I left stuff out. It was really a long test. I can't ever remember a normal Countess run that hard. Being my Sorc lived, I'm feeling pretty confident, for now!

Got all my characters to the Inner Cloister in one piece.....actually, hardly any worries, even though most had to face Pitspawn. Even the Sorc was doing pretty well. Had to finally quaff her first health pot, in the outskirts of the Inner Cloister, though, to a LE boss pack of lightning skellie mages....health got below 50 there.

Observations, at this point:

The Killer Scythe Necro is fun.....having the Master of Puppets wretched scythe drop for me towards the end of this run was a nice stroke of luck.

Not so sure about the lightning Barb. I think lightning in general just sucks in ES. Thunder Wave sure doesn't seem to do much, and Thunder Strike isn't all that impressive either. Not feeling too optimistic about the longevity here.

There's hope for the Enchantress. But, her low life at this point, scares me. If we can do something about that......maybe.

Enchantress all stats in Vit if you wanna survive the Domain...Lightning Barb is good simply cuz you got AC and can pick up Lightning Sorc for Merc for even more Dmg and safety...

Don't give up on the lightning barb. You may want to shell out some points here and there into Energy to boost the damage. And IMO, the sooner you get thunder storm, the better -- one of those cast-and-forget spells that automatically strikes for you. Well, don't forget to reactivate it when the duration ends :)

Also, Ancients' Call, the sooner the better, you need that to crack the resistances. -90% is fiendishly difficult without some tweaks (Lv.36) but more or less likely you may want -100% (Lv.41) where it caps.

Oh, yeah, I always put points into Energy with any character that is doing a form of elemental damage. If melee, 2 or 3 per level up....if ranged 4. For the Barb and Sorc, definitely, usually 2, as I need some in Str, and 2 in Vitality each time. If Str gets enough, 3 into Energy. I'm temped to put more into Vitality for the Sorc, but want to elevate her fire damage.

Enchant has pathetic Dmg anyway,better go for survivability and more Phys Dmg...

Did it get nerfed a lot, along the way? I remember builds with awesome Enchant damage.

You better get more life for Enchantress ASAP...or you will have to remake her again...Act 2 has some nasty monsters,and Act 3 is not forgiving either...

Nightmare Act 4

Paladin BleedingSaint Update:
Diablo was a piece of cake with Aanna's Set,even dropped me a Perfect Spark Jewel...
Clvl 65 in Harrogath...

Edit:Amazon WildChild Update:
Barely done Act 4 since my Might Merc kept dying...
Clvl 65 in Act 5...
