Nightfire


My Profile

I'm a 20-year old South Carolina native, who's been playing Diablo II almost since the game first came out - about 8 years now. I got into playing mods about 4 or 5 years ago, first with Nezeramontias and Zy-El, and then I found Eastern Sun. After a bit of a hiatus from Diablo in general, I came back to playing the game and quickly fell in love with the new version of ES, which I've been playing ever since.

I consider myself more or less an expert on Assassins in ES (Sorceresses in vanilla were my expert-level class), and I compiled the Eastern Sun Player's Manual for ease of use by new players and veterans alike. I'm also currently working on an application (see below) for item comparison in ES.

My Diary

8/10/08

Two rather nice finds today in the same run - *two* Assailant's Grand Charms, one with +0-37 Max and one with +0-25 Max.

7/23/08

Another bit of nice treasure today from Nowhere runs (which are fast becoming a favorite of mine) - Nu Rune (dropped from a monster as soon as I stepped off the Naraku 1 WP), Null Rune (from Nowhere), Fu / Ma Runes, a Lion Branded GC of Vita (vanilla would kill for this one), and my favorite drop, a Something Wicked Large Charm. That was the only Unique Charm I didn't have, and now my collection of them is complete.

7/21/08

An attempt at a Domain run with Temari on P8 came to an early stop after Metalspark's entire pack came out, leveling my Shadow Master and merc quickly before three Electrocuters tore my 9000 life down in moments. I did find a lot of nice stuff on the way, however, including a Jah decal and a +1 All Skills jewel, so the trouble was worth it.

7/11/08

Pushed myself to clear the entire Domain with Catherine, who up to this point had done everything in the game, Hell Baal included, on P8. This was no exception, and with a lot of struggling I managed to push myself to near the end. Unfortunately, her deathless streak was cut short when a lucky shot from an Electrocuter (Fatalstorm and Metalspark's packs were the two to spawn in Nihlathak's room, much to my chagrin) OHKOed my 2200 life. I went back and tore the place apart in hatred that her streak was ruined, dismantling both Metalspark and Fatalstorm, plus minions, with careful use of my Shadow Masters. After that 15-minute fight, Nihlathak stood no chance and died in less than 5 minutes. The whole endeavor took over an hour and a half, but with only P8 Cows remaining, I'm almost done conquering everything.

7/2/08

Not much to say about the few runs I've made today, but it did yield a few nice things, namely a Paladin Combat skiller and a Necro Summoning skiller. Mostly just trying to finish out the gear, and working on finding another Vex and Ohm decal so I can try out an Exile shield.

6/25/08

Well, I hadn't made an update before now because there was nothing update worthy, but I had a good run of things this morning. One single pack of cows killed by Kaorinite, my Trapper, yielded an Unknown Hero Grand Charm, an Unearthed Wand Coupon, AND a plain Maiden's Jewel at once. Needless to say, I'm happy, and a Poison Necro might be in the works now...
