Mission; Clear Mp10 Pre-RoS (Paragon 90!)

11/28/2013 04:45 AMPosted by BoozBear
Just wanted to make a thread where i can keep track of my self found monk and ask for advice as i try to rush a full clear Mp10 pre-Ros.

Is it ok if i make this thread here/update it periodically as i journey? If not ill let it die if it rubs people the wrong way.

Cleared Mp2 act 2 no problem, had a good zuni ring drop with dex/OS/armor, also several minor upgrades including legendary vigilance weapon. Should fullclear mp2 tonight or tomorrow.

its good that your doing this but compared to ros mp10 is nothing and your goals for vanilla will totally be different from the ones in ros with gear.

Sorry, but did u have to quote my entire huge first post just to write this one sentence? Also im confused by what your saying, have you got a point? Like are u saying im wasting my time or something? Cause i think your missing the point.

Anyway...

Update 30/12
-
Hit paragon 40! - http://i.imgur.com/UgETKjB.png

Not much else to report, found a sidegrade blackthorns belt, has no vit but its good for my low mp runs as it increases my damage.

Leg's found (5)
-
Tals chest
Nailbiter
Fury of van
Blackthorn belt
Danetta Rev

The tals chest was a really bad role as well unfortunately.

Also going to start giving away anything i think might be worth something? All i want in return is a single brimstone for legendaries! Preferably it would be nice if someone that wasnt super mega awsum rich could take it off my hands but if they could use it i wouldnt mind either.

Anyway first item would be this dead mans legacy i found, i searched on the AH for items similar and i believe its worth something, its got perfect crit/discipline and good rolls on vit and dex, topped off with elemental arrow damage increase which i believe is one of demon hunters preffered skills.

Anyway if you kno a friend that might like it or are interested yourself just add me

Update 07/01 (Shoulda rolled a wizard!)
-
Ok, so had a friend visit for a few days so couldnt play for a little bit but back on track.

Since last update not to much has changed, ive being knocking at Mp7's door for both ubers and full clear but i just still dont have the DPS for it, still need a new weapon so bad.

Had a few upgrades tho, completed my first 2-piece set when a pair of BT pants dropped (http://i.imgur.com/cnkOlPA.png), and also had a pure upgrade (albeit small) on my shoulders when i got my second pair of vile wards, small protection and damage upgrade.

Also finished my first hellfire ring after much resistance from the fang dropping, i must say i was pretty crushed by the roll, but next time eh!? http://i.imgur.com/E8GtT4B.png

Also made my first flawless star gem finally! A amethyst for my helm for progression.

Aside from that rest is about the same though, i did actually successfully kill mp 7 ubers ghom/rakanoth and skele king/mahgda but ZK/SB are just enraging on me to much at the end.

As for other legendaries, well i found 2 tals chest, 2 chantodo wands, a tals ammy (!!) and a few other pieces lol all bad rolls tho. Still praying for a innas helm/chest and my first skorn!

Nice monk u have bud, what type of self-found u playing? Just items or?

Dam dude, were either of those greens useful!? And nice monk keep it up!

Interesting! I wonder why our experiences were so different. Could be gear or spec, but it's probably mostly tied to playstyle. Either you've figured out the ubers in a way I never did, or I figured out Belial/Butcher in a way you've yet to master. Which seems kind of odd, because I think all three share some same basic principals (maximize your dps uptime by using as little time as possible to avoid their big hits),


I was actually thinking about this, and im not 100% sure but i think it is spec related, what is it that was your biggest roadblock for ZB/SB? Cause with belial/butcher for the most part i just wasnt moving to keep dpsing (or at least very little) with SB/ZB i have to do alot of chasing though, but while chasing my spec is still i guess you could say working? Cause i focus alot on spirit regen when im running around im basically just storing dps for free without any action so when zoltun reappears i slam him with all the spirit i regenerated in bells, etc.

This would be my guess why i clear on similar levels to ubers/normals, cause my dps uptime for ubers is pretty good i believe.

Yes, most of gears were found by DHL. But I didnt test him which mp level he can stay at.

I'm still gearing up my self-found monk, AuctionHouse. I hope I can find Nat ring, and witching hours.


I said above 11 days ago after that I found witching hours, nat rings and Inna pants too.

Update 08/01 (Shoulda rolled a wiz pt 2 and UPGRADES!!!)
-
So, to start off, finally hit para 50! Halfway there (in a sense) http://i.imgur.com/yGtUiNp.jpg

Also looted the tal rasha source, so that now makes 3/5 pieces of the set looted along with a triumvate, 2 chantodos and other wiz pieces QQ

Also had a pretty exciting moment when i thort a skorn dropped!! Only it turned out not to be a skorn..... http://i.imgur.com/KmRpvEj.png :(

Moving onto the big news though i finally got one of my most sought after pieces! http://i.imgur.com/sScVOMh.jpg

Was so stoked when they dropped and even more so when i ID'd them, i only wish the AS had rolled 9 :< http://i.imgur.com/kTpuzol.png

To finish up, i finally got a new weapon! Alas it may not be a skorn but its a small upgrade none the less! http://i.imgur.com/EAauRaR.png

Still praying for that skorn tho, and if i can get a innas helm ill really start to be kicking it!

Update 11/01 (PROGRESSION finally!!! (And upgrades YAY!!))
-
Ok, so later on the same day of my previous update i finally got a Inna's radiance as well! So huge boost in dps with a crit helm and getting the 2-pce 130 dex bonus, i didnt update about it straight away though cause i was a little sad over how bad the rolls were, oh well. - http://i.imgur.com/DueZAxK.png

Also crafted a 2nd hellfire ring, and am close on crafting a third, my HF crafts have being making me want to cry as well QQ - http://i.imgur.com/fk3Q0j1.png

Also looted a 3rd pair of vile wards which were once again, a very slight upgrade xD this pair has 2 more points of dex (MASSIVE!!!) and finally a vitality roll! Also a decent strength roll for bonus armor.

Now for the last bit of news, i FINALLY after much trying and spec experimentation downed Mp7 belial/butcher! Im looking at SB/ZK 7 next, but ill only attempt it once the only piece of HF i need, isnt SB's damned eye lol.

This was a pretty huge moment for me, this means theres only 3 mp's to go (once i finish mp7 uber SB) but i think i can take them!

Praying for that skorn!!!!

Nicely done!

I sympathize on the Hellfire Rings. I got amazing RNG which got me the parts for my first one extremely fast. And then rolled what had to have been close to a worst in slot possibility with them. At the time it was taking me at least several weeks to farm up the components, so it rather soul crushing.

In fact, I never did get a great ring, and barely used one . . . until after I hit P100. Of course I finally rolled something decent when I could no longer benefit from the + experience. Sigh. Still, it's a great "focused" gear goal to work toward.

Thanks!

Ye, i rolled a third one just recently, has 9% atk speed but still no crit which is what im dieing for, but still getting there... slowly.

As you said though its good cause i kinda farm around building a ring, for example my preferred farming run is act 2, Black canyon > VOTA > Oasis > restart, so i rlly dislike act 3, and act 1 i dont mind. So i generally will farm Act 2 on mp3 till i get enough keys, then do mp7 key runs in act 3 to get it over with, and then will finish with act1 on whatever mp i feel like depending on my mood for act1 at the time.

In saying that tho...

Update 12/01 (FIRST SKORN!)
-
First one! http://i.imgur.com/ucwWGLk.jpg

Sad roll tho =( But dat crit roll! Im sure my enchantress will make use of it =) http://i.imgur.com/WQAlchh.png

Till the next one!

Also got a second innas radiance, this one had a armor roll so a very slight upgrade, and also got my first windforce which the scoundrel can have ^^

Oh, and that skorn was a casual 34,000 sheet dps upgrade... no lifesteal tho QQQQQQQQQQQ

You really probably only need a couple of good pieces of LoH gear to make that Skorn MP8 viable, and you could probably use it just fine in MP9 once you get good gear (including 1,500+ LOH) to support it.

Man, you are really right smack dab in the middle of a RNG race against the release of RoS. Good luck and you'll make it with time to spare, bad luck and you'll probably need the expansion delayed by a couple of months.

Fun stuff!

Ye, have no good LOH stuff atm, could prolly cheese build a spirit spent for health as well, but am hopin to get a LS one!

As for the RNG, im hoping to do as much as i can to help ease how much RNG i need. Im pumping towards first radiant star gems so that once i have a radiant star amy i can start crafting the vit amulets, cause i could get a huge upgrade there etc.

Update 14/01 (Perfect sunkeeper and paragon 60!)
-
Just a small update, hit paragon 60! http://i.imgur.com/hUpSPMJ.jpg

And also found a perfect 45% mf sunkeeper, which completes my templar with max MF!

Thats about it for now though i think, havent had any major finds, am currently working on getting 12 infernal machines, already have 12 act 3 keys and am swapping back and forth between act 2.

Once i have 12 machines ill attempt mp7 SB again!

Till then tho!

Update 24/01 (Crit Nats (!!!) and getting back on track!)
-
So, my internet ports died and a technician had to go out to the exchange to change em, so i had no net for a whole week! So fell way behind, got it back today though and did 3 para levels in one day!

Also before net went down had a HUGE gear drop! http://i.imgur.com/6uR7Txu.jpg (!!!)

Was so excited as i took a deep breath and scrolled over my newly identified ring.......

.......

http://i.imgur.com/MUm3S77.png

!!

Absolutely DIEING to get my hands on some nat boots now, knowing there is a free 7% crit out there just waiting for me is the driving force behind my farming right now!!!

Edit: Also crafted my second flawless star amythest, this now means i have a 243 flawless square amythest countdown till i craft my radiant star amythest!! Once thats done i can start using my amythests on crafting amulets!!!

11/243 Square ammys!!!

Anyway thats all for now will update soon at 70!

Update 25/01 (Para 70 and 2nd skorn!)
-
So, not to much to update, pumped out 6 paragon lvls in 2 days to get to para70 and to catch up for lost time with my net going down, will settle down now probly. Loving the new paragon 70 portait, really wish they showed these things while playing by urself :(

http://i.imgur.com/fEpVVoO.jpg

Also had a heart pumping moment as i looted my 2nd skorn, results were.... well you can see for yourself

http://i.imgur.com/72chmAT.jpg

Next 1 maybe!?

Still searching for dem nat boots!

Oh and, 34/243 Square amythests.

Update 31/01 (2x Mempo's!? New weapons, SB7 down AND MORE!!)
-
So... alot to cram into this update!

http://i.imgur.com/T5LE2ha.jpg - To start, looted one of the set fist weapons, i didnt think much of it at first as it didnt have LS, then i realised coupled with a LS fist weapon i had and its own LpSS i was able to use them, total damage increase of 5k or so.

http://i.imgur.com/TJF218E.png - Also looted a new offhand, is a pure upgrade over my old fist weapon, also frees up the flawless star emerald i had in it and gives me alot more attack speed for more cyclones/bells per-blind.

http://i.imgur.com/Erl5dkD.jpg - Moving on, a few days ago actually i finally downed SB/Zoltun on Mp7! This leaves only the big 3 to go! Mp's 8-9-10!

Alas, i also finally looted 2 plans that have eluded me for a long time, the flawless star topaz plan and the grand exalted galraki plan, theres not to many of the rare BS plans i havent found at this point i dont blieve.

http://i.imgur.com/YSFrAqf.jpg - Onto some more interesting news i actually looted 2 (!!) mempos in 2 days, the first one you see in the pic ofc, has an awsome roll! But i cant say im that dissapointed, it would have to roll crit basically to beat the 2pce innas so i wasnt that surprised. Its kinda a good morale boost tho as if i can loot 2 mempos surely, SURELY i can loot 1 set of measly nat boots, AMIRIGHT!?

http://i.imgur.com/3OWPSr0.jpg - Lastly i had another double leg drop, ofc it was garbage! Couple mins later followed by a bloody set barb sword and the day before that i got the IK-belt, innas belt plz? Or any sort of set boot?

Either way, BRING ON PARA 80 and NAT BOOTS!

Oh and, 132/243 square amythests! Over half way there!!!
