A beast who Zultan Kulle just smacked around like a normal Act I zombie. I can't come close to sustaining through one of his guardians and tornado/fireball/ceiling collapse, so I spend a ton of time running around at the start of the fight. Time I can't really afford given his one shot enrage mechanic (and let me once again say I am not a fan of any enrage mechanics. Skill checks fine, gear checks bluh). Not that I had to worry about the enrage, as he was having fun hiding in tornadoes, which were pretty much instant death if I so much as looked their direction while he loaded up a fireball.
Still, I should be able to get him down with the gear I have.
Belial, on the other hand, is going to bazooka punch me into oblivion. I'll be pretty excited if I can get him down to 25%, but even that might be optimist.
Down with enrage mechanics!
Congratulations, I look forward to seeing you finish mp10.
*Gear I found using my other characters still count as self-found
Thank you, although after my beatings this morning I'm thinking I'll probably have to finish MP10 from my house on the moon (cause, ya know, it's going to take an eternity to gear up enough to clear MP10 anything, let alone MP10 Belial).
And I totally think sharing gear between your own characters still counts as self found. If anything, it makes it harder to progress, as you're splitting your time (and paragon, and NV stacks) between two characters. I only play my monk, but if I had a second character I'd totally share/swap gear between them.
Enrage sucks! So does no natural spirit regen! So does respawing with a half globe of spirit! [these are by far my three least favorite mechanics in the game. Enrage is fun when you're just geared enough to barely beat it, but otherwise it's too all or nothing. And I've never even got a sniff of fun from the two spirit mechanics]]
