titan Hardcore Melee, non Caster Sorc in crap gear?
Well to the nay-sayers. Allpoints Started her life out with a handme-down sig set that has been in the family for many years. Pumping Strength every level, Ive never had to worry about damage. Normal was was easy going except for diablo. That hose of death almost spelled deeds, but in the end my kung-fu was superior to his. Never discount static and massive maul to save the day.
level 15 I used a Ith'd 60's eth great maul
level 24 I went to bonesnap.
level 30-65 I up'd the bonesnap and it got me thru nightmare.
At level 65 I assembled a silence thundermaul
Once Nightmare hit, I had already equipped hefty pdr armor , so nothing but poison and a few le's were able to touch me with damage. Because I have such low life, anytime I get poisoned it almost instantly drains me out.
Chaos was a tricky affair with many merc revives. Name of the game was telestomp the ok's and walk the monsters back to I could bash em. Telestomp , 1 point in glacier spike and static ftw.
Ive just entered Hell and beat act1. Hell has proven substantially harder. I no longer have enough pdr to negate damage. Ive recently hit level 71 and dug out a Rare Bezerker Axe. It has 60ias (quickness mod +sheal) and Fools mod with huge AR. this allows me to ditch Angelics ammy and ring for another pdr ammy (24) and two Dwarfstar rings (80 life 30firesorb and 28mdr). I havent adventured with this setup yet, but it should keep me a bit safer.
Here's some pics

Everyone in channel has been so helpful They found my maul, chipped in some sols that's ive used on a couple pdr armors and Gave me this Ornate:http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u131/Master_Zappy/Game2008-03-1722-15-40-26.jpg
These Gloves are a real treat. 9 dex always helps, but the main appeal is the Inner sight charges. Ive used these fighting bosses. It reduces enemy's defense 115% , which increases my chance to hit greatly.http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u131/Master_Zappy/Game2008-03-1722-15-48-57.jpg
This Pdr hat has lived on several chars of mine. Nothing here but good ol'fashioned Damage reduction.http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u131/Master_Zappy/Game2008-03-1722-20-33-46.jpg
And here's the Silence Thunder Maul I'm using. The res are so important and ive found the massive mana leach I have helps me tank.http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u131/Master_Zappy/Game2008-03-1722-20-48-87.jpg
rest of my gear includes a 11% string of ears belt , Hotspurs boots. and Angelic ring and ammy. Eth gerke's shield with occy.
So I'll keep pushing on to see how far I get. I get alot of wtf in pub games when I join them. "Do you really have all your points in str" ... "yes" then I get "why would you want to do that? "
1 in all cold armors
working on maxing 20 ES . Casted at about 60% sorb.
Not sure where I'll put the rest of my points. Probably Lightmastry , Frozen armor or Firewall. (heck even frozen orb might work.
I did mess around with a kingslayer axe, the damage and ar was better. It also killed bosses much faster. The only problem was the lack or res, and Axes not taking advantage of all my str. The physical damage on both were about the same even though the ed% on silence was less. If I wasnt making a titan, then I think Kingslayer would be superior.
