Found some time to play during lockdown and couldn't help but share my enthusiasm. Ifan is already level 91 and has defeated Baal. Would love some feedback or advice!

Rules:
- HC SP
- self-found
- no plugy
- ATMA for muling allowed
- /players command allowed

Current gear:
- 234% ED The Grandfather, Colossus Blade
- 37% MF IK Will, Avenger Guard
- Lionheart, Wire Fleece
- Laying of Hands, Bramble Mitts
- Gloom's Trap, Mesh Belt
- Gore Riders, War Boots
- 164 AR, 18 dex Raven Frost, Ring
- 43 AR, 9% ll, 4 str, 13 life, 70 mana, 6% MF Raven Finger, Ring
- +1 to Barb, 10% FRW, 3% ll, 19 str, 10 life, 6 all res, 34 cold res Storm Mark, Amulet

Merc-- Act 2 might:
- Strength, Eth Stygian Pike
- Guillaume's Face, Winged Helm
- Treachery, 1125 Def Eth Sacred Armor

Other notable finds:
- Zod rune
- Ist rune
- Gul rune
- IK Set Maul, Gauntlets, Boots, Helm
- Thundergod's Vigor, War Belt
- +3 to Blizzard Ormus' Robes, but sold to Akara because not useful for Barb

Stats in screenshot below. Main skills is Whirlwind which does 5k max damage with might aura.

Current goal is to make a Eth Colossus Blade Breath of the Dying runeword since I found the Zod rune. For this purpose, I am farming The Pit on /players3 and killing all monsters with whirlwind plus using item find on uniques. I hope to find the following items:
- Eth Colossus Blade with 0 or 6 sockets,
- Vex, Gul, or Ist rune,
- IK Set Armor and/or Belt

First post, so might not be able to post pictures:

Yes, he gets +20 str from Strength runeword and +15 str from Guillaume's Face. The annoying thing is that this will not work once I find a better weapon for him, but then I will make another Treachery.

What would be some better weapons besides BotD? GF setup seems to do better compared to IK Maul + Gloves/Boots.

Found a Pul rune and upgraded Gloom's Trap to Mithril Coil for 50 extra defense on the belt. Probably just a waste of a Lem rune though...

Immediately after upping Gloom's found Nosferatu's which could be better, but currently don't have any better source of mana leech.

Did not yet find String of Ears or Vendrugo's.

I setup an online character viewer using diablo.run:
[URL]https://diablo.run/johnnydazz/IfanBenMezd17205[/URL]

Is there a way to include this in my first post here? Also at what point will links start working for me :) ?

Looking good man, loving the style with Grandfather. How come your offhand is empty?

I'd totally go BotD in a sexy ethereal base if you've found Zod. Sure Grief phase blades will be better but we've all seen those a million times before :)

I think you need 20 post count to share images, by the way, not sure about links, might be the same?

Look forward to seeing your barb! :)

Oh, and how comes you're farming Pit on /p3?

Thanks a lot for the support ^_^ ! Sure, I will also make a Grief once I find a Lo rune. Already have a superior 5so pb stashed. However, I'm really excited about BotD, since I've never made it before :).

I thought ww makes more damage this way. Maybe I'm wrong? I certainly don't need a shield for Pit.

Pit seems like the best level 85 area to farm and I'm not strong enough for /p5 or /p7. My goal is to find BotD base and runes, so /p3 is better than /p1 imo.
