    Not sure when the next hunt for d2r clone hunters will be, but Lucky (luckyluciano_6 on twitch)--who had the .15 ip today--is doing another one on Tuesday. He releases the IP on his stream 30-45 minutes prior to selling. If you can manage to get 2 SOJs and contribute, he guarantees a game.

    NICE. My friend got in 15 about 4 minutes too late. I got close to 219 a few times but alas.

    I think I just got good rng. I was already looking for 15 via Lucky's stream and happened to get 219 after a few tries as soon as it got posted.

    i wouldent say a good chance, the server the games need to be on has a limited amount of games it can host. And there were way more people trying to get in then there are spots.

    I've been trying to get a game on the right ip for 1-2 days per week for a few weeks now. In most hunts, you've got 60 contributors who either already have a game or know the ip ahead of time. The d2r clone hunters typically release the ip to the discord when 75% or more of the 60 contributors have a game. Lucky is guaranteeing spots for his 60ish contributors as well. So by the time ips get released to either community, there's 1200+ people competing for 140-165ish slots left on the server, assuming no contributor tells their friends about the ip ahead of time.

    You gotta get pretty lucky it seems to get in it seems.

    Lucky has been doing some Anni giveaways after his hunts, and it feels like that's somehow more likely to land you an Anni than actually hunting dclone lol

    Sometimes you just have that hunch that your drop is right around the corner. Something compelled me to stay up a bit (too) late and keep farming council and Meph for a High rune. Last one i called before i had to go to bed:

    Out of all the runes i get the exact one i wanted. Fortitude here we come.

    That seems like an insane amount of strength for a bowazon, why not put it in Archon Plate instead of Ornate?

    Look at my crown...(very nice rolled COA with 2x 15/17 % ed jewels)

    This build is not a glass cannon. I can get hit and have enough fhr (53 for 6 frames) to get out if it gets too hot. Plus i have dmg reduction and sick amount of defense.

    be the most important reason is the look of the ancient armor (ornate for higher Def, ancient is bonkers at 220) while wearing the crown:
    Screenshot106.png

    Looks much better than any other armor. I tried em all. None of them have enough gold and red to match the crown. Its all grey iron.


    I mean look at this (archon plate): I can't walk around looking like that!

    To clarify i'm running a FA/Strafe build. Not multishot. So i can use the extra defensive stats. Esp when there's a lot of undead around since then i cannot leech. (I have 17% (edit 14% whoops) so if there's no undead i can p much face tank anything)

    Yeah, my merc mostly handles the unravelers, while I keep the skeles down and remove them with redemption. Once the skeles are down, I throw on holy bolt and stand out of range of everything.

    Haha i was in a 8 p walkbaal game and people were hanging in town too long so i went ahead. Cleared to the entrance of WSk3 before they caught up.

    I swear 2 people were like "what... You're not a javazon?"

    Edit: and re: the strenght, i have Windforce which needs 134 str to begin with. So my 174 is 40 above what the build prescribes. should you go Andy's (20) it gets bumped to 60.
    But i also don't run Razortail but Nosferatu's coil (15 str (edit nvm Razortail has 15 dex so...) ) and i have this ring:
    S,creenshot108.png

    So that's 31 (edit 16) str most other build wont have. And i don't have to use for Andys for the leech (14 on ring + belt), so it's only 1 skill and 5 % ias extra. COA does everything else better (more defense, more resistance, more fhr so i can reach the 6 frame BP, more room for %dmg jewels (34 now could be 80)=>higher dmg potential, physical dmg reduction).

    Trust me i've given this a lot of thought 20 years ago when i didn't have the gear but a lot of imagination. To see it come alive before my eyes...It's emotional.

    Is it the "best reddit" build for a bowazon? No. But it's very sturdy, has max ias breakpoints (non bugged), deals a shitton of AOE freeze, and when amp kicks in, things just melt. Add the Fanaticism to the mix and you're a welcome addition to any 8 player group.

    - I like to live, so no glass cannon for me.
    - These builds all assume insane gear. Mine is just self found and online trades (no jspfuck you).
    - It's mine. It's unique.
    - My character will be visually distinctive.

    Respecced my alt to an Avenger paladin and... it's got potential. As soon as I hit level 47 and equipped a Crescent Moon things got a lot spicier.

    Still gonna need some aura support for AOE. Holy shock (Dream) and Holy Freeze (Merc) in addition to Conviction. Then I'm going to run a Sanctuary shield before I build my second Dream.

    GG weapon is probably a Last Wish or Death. (According to the wiki, Grief's added damage won't work with Vengeance).

    vengeance is all base damage. an eth zerker with botd might be ideal

    It also counts ED from weapons (edit: which I guess is another way of saying base dmg), +damage from off-weapon items (war travelers), and +min/+max charms. Again, according to the wiki. I am not rich enough to test myself.

    https://diablo.fandom.com/wiki/Vengeance

    But you're right, BOTD would be gross. Probably S-tier but I'm also trying to be somewhat realistic.

    Botd isn't too pricey, compared to other runewords at least. Zod seems to be trading around vex-ish, and a vex last week was 6 key sets.

    Speaking of vex, on my "one last countess before bed" run, I managed to drop one off a fallen in the tower! I love "one last run"s. It's how I got my first shako too.

    I swear this game reads out your timezone and whenever you are playing past what is considered "a reasonable hour" it turns up the droprates to 11 and sometimes mindreads you as well.

    apart from my first Lo rune all good stuff has dropped while i could barely keep my eyes open.

    i took a zod instead of a vex for a ligthning fhr skiller. Zod is pretty tame compared to Ber or Jah. (or even Lo or Ohm for that matter)\

    edit: hero editor is your friend. I plotted out my bowazon (roughly) in SP before investing into the Faith bow and fortitude armor.

    The best boss in D3 was the Skeleton King because IIRC he didn't say a goddamn word before he tried to kill you.
    He was also a wonderfully designed boss mechanically, like a boss fight in a good action or brawler game. Nearly all his damage was avoidable if you moved and timed things properly. I remember during the D3 beta watching a YouTube video (I think of Kripp) of 4 people fighting the King with level 1 characters in starter gear. The fight took something like 40 minutes, but it was neat that it was doable because it was an actual skill testing fight in an ARPG where usually there is a gear floor since a lot of incoming damage isn't really meant to be avoided.

    Granted the boss mechanics in D3 generally became kind of meaningless once the game became more about getting insanely geared and just being able to mow through things with relative impunity, but before then D3 had some pretty well done boss fights for an ARPG. If you didn't outlevel/outgear them, you actually had to learn some patterns and avoid attacks and such. It was definitely more interesting than the D2 chug and slug attrition battles (Diablo being the only notable exception where not sidestepping the lightning hose is a killer).

    The best card in Hearthstone is your credit card.

    Yeah I don’t have 1 set of keys, let alone 6.

    I kinda prefer running a few different areas per game rather than just grinding away. I tend to do:

    - Countess
    - Pits
    - Chaos
    - Eldritch
    - Pindleskin

    Eventually I’ll get 3 countess keys and then switch up to summoner, then Nihl. But I have a lot of trouble just doing the same thing over and over again.
