lol got absolutely nothing for damage until level 5 (which took about 12 minutes to get with split arrow and kiting swarms of monsters with empty mana pots), where I used an alch on a shortbow to get like 15% ipd. Basically suicided after that.
In addition to not finding ice nova once again and being unable to actually compete with witch record, my client also crashed to 6 out of 9 load screens (not client side problem, normally never happens outside descent) and on 2 occasions it took closer to 2minutes to get back in. Oh, and i almost died to massive exploder desync in frozen abyss (never saw them... was progressing downwards) and then actually died to 1 single crit discharge champion while having several pieces of life gear.
First time i post a rant @ forums... this race format is really pushing my patience.
Didnt get a blue or yellow weapon until lvl 15 and i ended up in 115th place. I think it was fine, as it was the first time i wasnt brutally murdered by merveil and company. The desync there is just insane...
Dang, the abyss is tough! I finished #22 of all shadows, but I think I could have gotten top ten if I didn't spend so much time in the statue area. My secret weapons (both dropped from Massier, which is why I make a point to kill all rares and bosses) :
+1 to cold with freezing pulse? YES PLEASE!! Was so glad I rolled shadow shadow bo badow.
And the fact that I found a dual strike... Made my single target DPS on par with a dualist! Here's to hoping next time I get such good loot....
