I'm back after a vacation in Greece, 28°C every day
Now I'm freezing death in Belgium
My male warrior 'Jurden' is now level 15.
Some stats (with boosts from gear!):
Strength : 45 - Agility 35 - Intelligence 22 - Constitution 30
HP: about 300 and MP about 250.
Have done many many trading with first George (now he's killed because of rescue Mardaneus from Thelyron
) and now on Rivertown market with Kistandalius (he admire me, rep 100!) and the weapon smith and the other guys too ...
Have many good equipment-items found and bought !
Some of my Skills are now: (3 skillpoints left)
Enchant Weapon level 3
Poison Weapon l 2 (great skill!)
Splitting Arrows l 1 (great in comb with Poison Weapon, esp. by killing (a group of) Orcs!)
Meteeorestrike l 2 (one skillbook found near the Dwarven village)
Lightning l 2 (+ one skillbook bought by Kistandalius for to use later)
Know Creature l 1 (from gear)
Hell Spikes l 1 (from gear)
Survivor Instinct l 1 (from gear)
Alchemy l 2
Lockpick l 1
Augment Defense l 1 (boost 'Armor' value)
Freeze l 2 (always a good skill by most enemies)
Sometimes I use the Warrior skill if many enemies surrounded me! Great skill, but don't forget to have potions of STAMINA with you!!!
For me most dangerous moments are the final battle at level -5 catacombs beneath Aleroth, but I survive! And also all the moments many (different) enemies attacked me by surprise, but to be honest, most of that kind of "surprise" was coming up if I was a little bit unpatient and do stupid movements (to fast moving in unexplored areas for instance!)
My Telporter Stones have also saved me a killing blow from a Great Giant Orc
I'm happy I still breathing
@GPDA : wecome to the hardcore challenge thread
I don't care about Scorpions Traps. Never used them in DD.
I try to have the best "boosts" in Vitality and Constitution and all the rest are "extra" to come in handy! I use all the charms some Orcs leave behind and have already 3 Strength charms in use (3 X + 4 to Strength !!) + 1 Dexerity charm ...
Have 4 good bows + 2 good swords + 1 great dagger and 1 great axe ! So I let Seth live with his Brightblade.
Later I write down here the specifications of my gear
