I'm a brand new player of this mod, was looking for a character to start out with to learn the ropes.
I followed the skill template as much as I could, I'm lvl 28 now and kinda stuck trying to do the 1st challenge. The pirate kills me when he starts casting that poison attack, both me and by bloodlust merc. Tried attacking with a crossbow, but doesn;t seem to do any damage.
I need some help in gear department, I mostly use low lvl runewords and some uniques I picked up from doing several Griswold runs, no tier 2 yet.
Here are my stats:https://image.prntscr.com/image/J4fWrVj ... h3Pe9Q.jpg
I'm using Paaliaq, Warmonger, Spirit teacher headdress, wormtongue belt and Epicenter boots.
I did a mistake, I put skillpoints into iron spiral when i should have left it at 1 point.
I really appreciate any suggestions to improve, please explain the acronyms so I cam learn them.
The first Challenge (LC1) is done at Level 50, so you have quite some time to do it, just progress trough the game until that point. When you reach Mephisto and can farm him reliably you might want to upgrade your gear (check for Requirements though) and make any Tiered Uniques you wish with 2x Arcane Crystal + Oil of Enhancement + Item you'd like to make to a Unique.
A few Acronyms out of my head:
fhr - Faster Hit Recovery
frw - Faster Run/Walk
ias - Increased Attack Speed
fbr - Faster Block Rate
-e(f/l/c/p)r - Minus Enemy (Fire/Lightning/Cold/Poison) Resist
ed - either Enhanced Defense or Enhanced Damage
dr - either % Damage Reduction or Flat Damage reduced (mostly used %dr or flat dr)
Those should cover most Acronyms you will come by as Iron Spiral Barb, if I forgot something you can also use the Short Question Thread or ask again here.
About your Skillpoints: Dont worry too much about it now. You will respecc later on most likely (either to wear more powerful gear, after you get some charms or because you feel like it
). You can do that 3 times for free (after Den of Evil Q in A1 at Akara in all Difficulties). About midway through Terror there is a chance to get some "Belladonna Elixier", with those you can respecc too.
