    I enjoyed update 43, though Finding Dorris was long-winded & I found it very easy to get lost in there - maybe some signposts in the village bit, or just some house numbers that wouldn't be too intrusive but which would aid navigation without being out of place lore-wise would be a big improvement.

    Loot-wise, there's some solid stuff & while you singled out the sickle as being unusual, I think it's rather nice, you were concentrating on druid but my mind immediately went to swashbuckling, which adds +2 threat & +1 multiplier, making them 18-20/x3 or 16-20/x3 with IC:slash & you can add swords to plowshares on top of that to boost it further - also, as a swashbuckler you'll likely take perfect SWF for the double vorpal range meaning the limbchopper effect is proccing twice as often too, making the legendary version a very solid bit of kit.
    I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was, now what's it is weird and scary to me.

    Does Limbchopper work on Red and Purple-named bosses?

    If so, you'd have a VERY solid argument for why The Hook could be well-worth using.

    If not, I'd rather SWF with Reflection of Whelm and the Gauntlets of the Stormreaver. Vorpaling on a 19-20 with those can be pretty devastating.

    Don't think limbchopper works on bosses, but there's still a load of annoying orange named it should work well on, particularly good if they're champions. Also, you can't swashbuckle with whelm :P

    True, but you can PSWF. Weapon Speed + PSWF (and over 3,000 Hit Points) are the keys to my Whelm + Gauntlets toon.

    I'll give Swashbuckling + Hook a look, though.
