01444: Continuing Diablo III Adventures

Sibling Warriors
So my brother and I have finished Diablo III together on Nightmare difficulty. My Witch Doctor is doing decently well, although I'll admit that I died a heck of a lot more than I would have liked. I've yet to find the "ideal" mix of skills that leave me comfortable from a playing perspective and I worry about how things will get once we reach Hell mode.

But let's not think about that just yet.

At the end of things, I had a rather poison-focused Witch Doctor who finds just about any way to deal larger and larger amounts of cumulative damage via poison attacks. My default is to shower my opponents with poison toads - a strange and sometimes humorous image, but it's pretty effective in-game.

But instead of moving on to Hell difficult  I opted to take a break from the rigors of the Witch Doctor life and instead opted to finally try a new character class. So instead of being a range-oriented character I'm not a heavy melee monk type fighter - plus she's a woman. I've named her Mildred - just because.

The Mighty Mildred
This is an early shot of Mildred - I swear she looks much better now. It's funny that she even has a dagger in her hand (she finally has a fancier class-appropriate hand blade now) since her attacks are mostly martial arts moves. Somehow the weapons magically don't factor into her attacks from a visual perspective, but her actual damage is computed based on the weapon stats. It's weird, but that's how the game works across the character classes. Your weapons pretty much define how most of your spells work.

It's still too early to determine whether or not I like the Monk more than the Witch Doctor at this point since I still don't have all of her skills just yet plus all the nuances of the runes totally change the gameplay styles in the higher levels. But she is pretty bad ass, and thus I've started to call her the Mighty Mildred.

Mildred, Mildred, MILDRED! Isn't it such a ridiculous name? She sounds like a character out of Downton Abbey or something.

And before you even ask, I can't really share my Battle Tag since I'm only playing through my Dad's account. I still don't have a computer that can support the game (but I hope to address that soon!) nor do I have an actual copy of the game. But that's only for now. At least I get to play when I visit home, plus it's good practice for later games.
