No it was the 2nd third part.

From Asgard, what remains are: Mimer  ::), Nidhoggr, Loki and ... Surtr.

Leeroy Jenkins - Twinked L79 Spellbreaker - Done

The main danger in this last part was again Loki. He should be considered as the last boss, harder than Surtr.

Thanks Medea for this challenge  ;) . Hardcore gives a new dimension to the game, it's so exciting like in DII.
Thats' one way to learn a lot while playing. Experience i guess is as important as gear.

Thank you all, playing a spellbreaker finally has reconciled me with melee classes  ;)

Congrats Tauceti - very well done and Spellbreaker is not a class that I would expect to see to win this challenge any time soon - well you have sure as hell proven me wrong :)

I have also decided to rejoin the challenge - I am getting back to my roots with a Templar, but this time I am rolling as a twinked char (Siegfried is farming the gear on Legendary for this challenge).

Currently I am letting EBD carry me as far as it can, so my gear is fully optimized for +%EBD.

My goal is to at least reach Legendary, because I really think Epic is very much doable if one plays quite carefully and optimizes gear accordingly.

Don't have much late game gear prepared either - apart from improved Athena's Battle Greaves with +Poison Resistance.

Happy to see you rejoin finally the challenge. Actually last time, i hesitated between a templar and a spellbreaker.
Let us know how is your feeling about this class. Templar seems promising.
Wish you the best, man  ;)

Aaaaaand, the Normal difficulty is finished.

Ororo - L61 Templar AER (TWINKED) - Helos

Templar seems like an excellent Normal difficulty class... very tanky, Trance of Wrath to dish out constant (and relatively high if you prioritize +%EBD) DPS and Armor Handling to help you equip all that shiny Legendary gear much earlier.

Let's see how he will fare on Epic.

I will put him on a hold for a while since I simply do not have the necessary gear to continue. I doubt EBD will carry me through Epic, so I need to re-spec into DPS build. I will have to go farm Act IV legendary with my Haruspex and try to find some top tier items. Aionios would be super useful and perhaps Sapros as well?

Just FYI, no progress has been made since my last post as I have recently transferred to Belgium via my work.

I have to figure out a way how to get my gaming PC and the monitor to Antwerp  ;D
