Day 1 update:

Playing as CNC-TheSeer, build #10.

Only made it partway into act 2, just cleared the Maggot Lair and got the Staff of Kings. Attempted to go into Tran Athula and was promptly murdered by the pirates, probably due to my abysmal resists as they seem to do a bunch of poison damage.

So far the build’s been fun, especially after getting Pestilence; Boneyard is strong but can’t deal with stragglers, so Pestilence takes care of anything that survives the initial barrage. Before getting it I was having to either switch to Funeral Pyre or let one of my 1-2 Flayers take them down, or move on and ifnore them.

I’m level 29, with a bunch of saved stat points as I haven’t calculated out what they need to be yet for gear; I’ve been allocating as necessary to equip new pieces and keep my energy high enough to keep comfortably casting spells frequently.

I’ve got all my early game runeword gear finished, though no luck on the weapon or shield yet. My jewelry and boots might as well not exist, but I’m sure that will change.

So far my only death besides Tran Athula was due to a trapped chest exploding me, so I feel pretty good so far about this run! It’s an interesting way to learn about Median and experience what it has to offer. I’m looking forward to starting on the Honorific crafting.

I plan to play a ton tomorrow, and hopefully my stream will behave more this time around. It looks like my most local Twitch server is not actually the best choice for me, according to some testing, so I’m going to try a different server and see if that helps.

Good luck to everyone! May your drops be plentiful and your deaths few :)

Just completed Diablo on Terror, still 2 Levels short of beeing able to use the classcharm (lc2 done already).
Already transitioned to Mid-Game Skillplan since Stampede is absolut useless and Thunderslam gives at least some decent defensive option.

For a build that doesn't invest in char damage, yes, it is useless. I think the frw from el rw is more useful while leveling. Otherwise dual wielding swords in early game would be better for summon stats.

Sorry for Not beeing clear.

1 Point Stampede at an full Str char with summoner skillset is useless.

Better? :P

about a day and a half down and only 2 people 120, with everyone else struggling on progression because every char is a summoner. lul.
