I just leveled my monk to 16. Levelling her has been really easy actually, levels 12-16 just flew by. 🙂 She kicks butt. She’s also really durable, and I have easily been running own level quests elite, meaning 2 levels higher than her own level.
But, I’m starting to realize, I need better wraps, or at least a selection of different ones. I recently got the Vampiric Stonedust Wraps, and I’m loving them, but they’re insufficient on some opponents. They work great on fleshies, but I need something else for at least renders, golems and incorporals. I have +4 fire handwarps of.. impact I believe, and they work nicely on anything ice, but non ice renders are a problem (and flesh golems). I just got the Ethereal Bracers, which means I can at least skip the ghost touch.
Also, as a non caster, how do I protect myself from ability damage and negative levels? Maidae keeps a bunch of restoration scrolls in her inventory, and uses them to get rid of negative levels (cleric dilettante 3). But e.g. when running Ghosts of perdition elite yesterday, Cholthulzz caused her so much ability damage that she quickly ended up helpless. First time she got a heal and was able to get back to fighting, second time she died. 🙂 When we beat Cholthulzz, the only one still standing was the barb at only a few hp. I was the first to drop. Party was sorc, fighter, barb, me and fvs hire. I was jumping down without feather fall (monk slow fall), so I was always the first one down beating on Cholthulzz.
I hadn’t planned to flag Maidae for anything but Shroud, but I’m actually enjoying the GH and Orchard flagging, so I might flag her for at least GH. 🙂 I should, though, do a few practice runs of Crucible on casual (without finishing), to learn the objectives. As a monk, it’s likely I’ll be expected to do at least water, maybe others as well. Although, I don’t even know if the mace is soloable, and do you need any skills to get Jorgundal to open the door for you? I’ve run the crucible 3 times on Thazara, but then I was just staying back, healing and killing trash. 🙂
Alright. Any suggestions of must have wraps would be appreciated.
Tc. and see you in game.
