Act 3 Mephisto runs are good source of arcane crystals for you. Until that runewords and even rares are enough. Tal rune in sorc crystal sword, Eth rune in belt, armor from tristram, ect.

I figured I could just skip past all of those low level runewords till I get tus. Guess not. I made them and now i'm just destroying everything like I expected to. Think shark made the most difference though. Thanks.


Yeah, I don't recommend skipping parts of the walkthrough unless you know what you're doing. There's a reason I put as much detail into it as I did.

Hello,
First of all I know about the game, I just played the main story. I don't have detailed information. You decided to play the wizard near your creation. But I got stuck in 'Andariel' boss at ACT 1 Nightmare. Because he kills in two-three shots. I gave my skills and stats as you showed me, but I Loot my stuff off the floor and they're crap. Where do I go wrong and die so easily? Sorry about that bad English.

It can't be impossible, she benefits from Dex (abandoned craft and/or bless) and when going on a budget honorifics are fine, more MO space at it's worst, and if i may say so what really hurts the melee sorc is actual physical dmg, and mostly cause of it's main attack melee tree skills that well..are not worth investing more than 1 point on, except fusilade this one is great for bosses but just that. The melee set is fine for 120 maybe even 130+ with some patience but really you will surely want one of the sacred warp swords for either physical or elemental dmg, or at least craft a warp sword with close to 200% ED and over 250 max dmg, maybe up to +6 sorc skills, procs and other goodies, patience is a virtue. Block from Dex is good, but be aware that with a few points in the poison tree you can get a lot of % physical res, and keep farming Duncraig (physical res is good here) or Dimensional labs 6+ and up to 10 (here have the +max res gems in gear), and then respec and progress when you have better gear.

What i mean is, isnt it impossible to put shrines on a sacred honorific item?
