I've watched both and it was fun. It's always interesting seeing new players play. :D

Can't wait for part 3! Please bump this thread when it's up.

the commentary is very funny, nice work! I'm used to only seeing elite ppl play and then to see this haha.. imagine if he only had some techno music playing in the background the whole time instead like some other clips i've seen

Keep them coming please! I think the best part is going to be when you finish leveling up to 120 and then look back on these.

I agree. It's very funny seeing him selling a +11% cold resist ring and instead equipping a +5 mana ring. This simply goes against everything I'd ever do in MXL since resist are so hard to get, especially in the very early stages of the game and mana is so utterly useless throughout the entire game especially as a summoner, where you summon your stuff once and then forget about it.
► Veridio you shouldnt read this since this is a spoiler


But don't worry bro, you'll quickly grow. The way you interpret things is nice. If you ever feel like you're stuck don't hesitate asking questions.

This is definitely a nice, refreshing approach to this mod, since you usually only see the pro's doing something without explaining much since they take some general knowledge for granted. But you, as a completely newbie (no offense intended) playing this game and exploring its content is really nice. I'm interested in seeing further videos.

I only dropped the resist because I don't recall too many cold damage spots in act one. Though, you writing it out makes it look pretty bad. I've been notoriously terrible at handling resists, should be fun to run into for the future.

Great first video. I always enjoy when people talk while playing. Nice to see a 'beginner' play through, especially in a class I never play. Looking forward to more.

it wasn‘t meant as offense. I‘m sorry if I expressed it that Way.

When I watched your video I felt like being thrown back to my first steps into Median. I mean... I can‘t appreciate a unique drop like you did since it has all become too static to me. And of course I made tons, probably many thousand mistakes more when I started playing this mod. That‘s why your videos are good. You let me see this game through other eyes but at the same time you think things through, which I didn‘t do back then.

Excuse me being a dick earlier. I really enjoy your videos.

Funny way to die on hatred is using Amulet of the Viper till Duriel, then cubing staff to open orifice and after brave fight with Duriel... dying to poison spitting folks behind the corner ;)
