Aaaaaaand done with Normal! wew man, fucking Surtr was so annoying, pets dont even come close to him in his 2nd out of the 3 lava-pool phases, and the Nymph kept killing herself on the Dmg reflect... Everything else was fairly good, not too hard, other than Fire giants, god damn they crit and they hurt a lot! Epic act 1 will probably be a bit easier hits wise, but my god now the real challenge starts...  I'm 1/3rd of the way there, and it's gonna sting getting to legendary... I did full clear+grind a bit, so I'm lvl 49 at the end of normal. I'm a bit torn, I'm not sure if I should keep going for int points or maybe strength for the Golden Shield of Pelaron, or maybe stick to the Euphrates shield for maximum -%recharge and then going all in on HP, as that's my current plan. The challenge was definitely the hardest in act 3-4 when I didnt have enough points to fight certain things reliably, but now the difficulty penalties are gonna step in, and my pets are already falling off on damage... May RNGesus have mercy on my soul!

Decided to also breeze through act 1. Doing amazingly well, my Phalanx+Earthbind spam carries me so hard though :D I would have 0 dmg were it not for Phalanx. Now I'm chilling in Rhakotis at level 54, enough for one day.

Wooooooh man this was rough! Act 2 was fairly easy, Phalanx carries me. I do notice a start of lacking damage for quick kills. Act 3- everything is easy, even Barmanu got rekt before he could get his meteors out (from what I've seen, Phalanx' damage seems very inconsistent. Sometimes they all nuke something into oblivion, like what happened with Barmanu, and sometimes they just sit there and do nothing... ), Dragon Liche wasnt even a problem so long as I positioned myself correctly. However... Those god damned Gilded dead with Spellbreak and Death Chill aura!!!! with -40% vitality resist, if I accidentally walk close to them I just lose half my health (and I've been dumping points into HP and Energy, hoarded some before and dumped them all at once for that nice big HP boost, along with maxing Heart of Oak, since it's my best way to get tankiness/utility). And of course, the Dragonian Deathlances... Holy mother of God, they ignore the Phalanx a lot of the time and go after me, thank you Earthbind for existing! Everything else was simple enough, but problems are rising for sure. Telkine and Typhon werent an issue, although I didnt kill Typhon as fast as I could because I positioned my phalanx wrong. Now I'm at level 61, chilling in Rhodes, done for today.
I'm definitely not making the same mistake as on normal, I'm not touching Toxeus until I finish act 4, I want more levels before I fuck with him! :D
Also, sry for pulling an "akshually", but the char name is Ishtar, with an H :-X

Well done marko.

Darn it, for some reason I always want to put a "k" in there instead of an "h".   :o
