Argh!  It's that yellow again!  Sorry Jacko, gasconron used it in his thread on his Xmax toons.  While it seems nice to colour code unfortunately the yellow here on the forum just makes the text unreadable - it's just a yellow blur.

We are going ... Spellbreaker  >:D

Given my friends all play malee...Conq and some Haru saying Spellbreakers sux we decided to prove them wrong...and we fell in love with the toon...aura and the companion  ::)

I inveted this whole back story about him...a young warrior who would not accept his destiny (imposed on him by his ancestors) and always wanted to become a mage but in the end decided to get the best of the two worlds and use swords and dark art of necromany to his advantage to rain destruction on his enemies...short story.

Now this has become an everyday bedtime story for Zuzia  :o

we will post more about our progress tomorrow.

Jacko & Zuzia - Jacek - L39 Spellbreaker AER (TWINKED) - City of Rhodes

1st Typhon was difficult to bring down.

2nd was quick to die.

3rd Typhon went down big time ...he died at the hand of Zuzia  :D but there was a close call when he hit thorns.

Update for Gale Vitesse, she's now up to L35 and resting at the Eastern Silk Road fountain.  No real problems so far, even though I'm still getting back into the swing of the game after concentrating on GD for so long.  Barmanu was my main worry, but patience and Lightning Bolt/Chain Lightning did the trick.  Have almost got Nature mastery maxed out too now so then it will just be a case of maxing out the skils.  Squall/Obscured Visibility and Lightning Bolt/Chain Lightning are already maxed since she's relying on them for most of her damage.  Kill count: 33,998.

Will be officially rejoining the challenge as a Thane and a Battlemage.

Had a hard time running Legendary using my pre-AE setup on these classes. Unfortunately, I lost both my re-runs during the Holidays.

BM died farming Hydra and my Thane got hit by god knows what in Wusao. I think I got hit by a Smiting mod and literally got one-shotted. I really struggled with these classes.
I'll use this as an opportunity to rethink my gear setup and start them a new in this challenge.

Great news gasconron.  I'm running a Battlemage too so will be interesting to see how they both get on.  He's only up to L19 and at the Upper War Camp at present so not really that far along yet.

Update for Hyone my no potions Haruspex - she's up to L35 and has reached Zhidan. So far no problems, kited Barmanu x3 as usual and they went down more quickly than I expected.  :)  Kill count: 32,720.






Had a funny glitch though.  I was running through the various vendors trying to buy the colour bottles needed for one of the side quests in the expansion and saw that the Monstrous Brigands quest giver had a yellow icon over his head.  Talked to him and got the quest - even though it was done ages ago since it's the first side quest you get at Helos.  And it wasn't in my quest log either.  Anyway ran it again and completed it so now up to date.  Can only think it's something in Xmax that isn't quite compatible with the expansion at the moment. Weird though.

Not really in the mood to run my last Legendary HC this week so I decided to relax during the holidays boosting these re-do's. The new XP curve makes XP farming so fast it's amazing. hahaha. I barely felt the "1st 10-levels Hell"

Obviously, I'm twinking hard with Snowball and 2x Poisonous rings for early level farming. Might farm SBC for the +skill and some levels. Will probably resume the road trip when I hit lvl 24-26ish

Active Challenge Characters:
Cristina (Battlemage) 9 - Sparta
Yunah (Thane) 19 - Farming Gorgons and Parnasus WarCamps...
