ACT 1



I just arrived Rogue Encampement.
I might be able to help some people on my way to Andariel.
I heard that evil forces are growing in a cave outside town.
Maybe the people here will have more information about it ..
No time to waste .. evil does not wait.

End of the Prince Albrecht


I found the source of evil near the Rogue camp.
Prince Albrecht , risen from death.
I sent him back from where he comes.

Blood Raven : A Sister Story


At my return of the cave , now known as 'the den of evil' , chief of the rogue mercenaries have alredy heard of what i've done.
She wearned me about about one of her sister; fooled, killed and used to raise an army of undead.
We had no choice but to kill her again for her soul to rest in peace.

Image

As a reward, she let me hire one of her mercenaries for a fair price.
Please welcome , Oriana !

Image

Old Tristram



I found a weird scroll that opened a portal to Old Tristram where Grisworld, the smith, was gaining strength.
We slained him before he find his way out of Old Tristram.
People of Rogue camp will be more safe without him in the parage.
Akara, priestest of the village thanks me with an enchanted robe.

Image

The Countess tower


My loyal friend Oriana told me about an abandonned tower , where still lives the Countess.
Her magic runes might help get stronger, but I first need to reach her through these dark rooms.
They say she fear light and lives far under the ground.

(Forgot to ss runes , but got a Sur rune.)

The magic hammer


The village smith asked me to find her a magical hammer for which she will craft me a strong piece.
Fortunately, it's on my way to the catacombs where hides Andariel.

Andariel : Queen of the Catacombs


Finally , after a long walk through old jails, I arrive at the end of the Catacombs.
I had to fight strong guards, making the way down dangerous.
I could hear those big wooden doors crack and the smell of her burned soul.
Before the fight , I had to ensure finding enough fire protection to avoid her dark magic.
This is a small victory , but the first step to vainquish Baal forces.

Assassin in HC? You will die sooner than later. I played HC Holy melee back in Laz days and was a solid build, and that was when there were tons of 1HKO's. I was able to get all the regular charms with him, but some ubers where not doable in HC... period. Anyway, pick up everything, constantly upgrade your armor for defense and max resists very early on and you should make it much further than you think. Most SC player's don't have the patience for HC.

Actually ssin is now quite HC capable @Taem - esp. trapsin (tho I prefer starting as throw and respec later) where you get claw block at 96 and you can put most points to vit (and use dual anarchy for +50%life).

Well there is a lot of chance I died soon or later ! I'll do my best so it's more later than sooner :).
Yes I usually play SC , but i'm an old school player : slow grind , kill mobs , pick up everything ... So i don't think the HC play will bother me.
Last time I played HC is 10 years ago with a Classic WW barb. I was level 94 and killed by diablo because of a distraction :( Never played untill then.
I Heard trapsins have been upgraded this patch .. saw some clear fauztinville way faster than my summon barb ( and they were -15 level than me.

But thank you for your concern and I hope you enjoy the format and the gameplay.
Will post updates of gear/stats at the end of acts or whenever i find something interesting.
