Levels 1-3 essentially the same as previous.
Quests Ran: WW hard, Bonebite, Durk’s, Garrison’s, Haverdasher and Butcher’s elite, Catacombs hard (till last part, where I level right before).
Decent Loot pulls: +1 acid repeating hvy (1d6 versus 1) end reward ww hard.
Butcher’s much smoother with grease! Muck spawned in Durks, but no muckbane. When I went to sell and repair, I saw a +1 kama of pg in the marketplace weapon broker. I paid around 1k plat for it, but now feel better about catacombs and undead quests. I know it is not uber, but getting past dr is important. I pick up 20 cure lights and decide to descend upon the Catacombs on hard. Turns out to be a waste fo 1k plat.
Well, the pure good kama not really slicing through too well, but on hard, I’ll keep plodding along. I will need to restock on some potions, however. I can’t selfheal forever as I did on the espresso machine. Remembering the anguish of this quest previously (crypt portion) I begin by taking out crypts. Takes a long time to complete that way, but I'll be the first to say perma death is about staying perma-alive.
Favor earned: 200
LEVEL UP NOTES (level 5,monk)
fighter toughness, racial toughness and dilettante barbaridan dr (giving me 2 total now)
37 hit points (or 50% more than I had before) evasion, and some more saves to go with a jump from 1 to 2 dr. Now let’s finish off Catacombs. It got a little hairy, but rune arm saved the day. I ended up taking out the arcane before Dryden. End rewards sucked so bad took me 10 minutes to decide on a ghost touch repeater.
Off to bed now, but tomorrow I expect to do ww elite, possibly catacombs elite, sharn hard, stk hard.
