lving 58-59 on Puks in Wajoram Woodlands i was using Wivre shield and i think i lost hate... twice, with our THF constantly SATAing whoever was standing behind the mob(Not me, i was never the SATA target). But before the THF showed up i was using R.K. Army shield better stats. I had +15-16 ENMity with most AF pieces(no body), High breath mantle, and wivre.
Only necissary if you feel you need to let the THF SATA whoever, or you suck at holding hate and are rich as hell. Anyone who says you are gimp without it is a fcktard.
I think only Elvaan\Galka would have to worry about using smaller shields for skillups @ this level, most everything that would, stays capped when you get here(swrd, eva, shld, divine) although my healing magic is about 60 under cap right now, i need to get my PL on >.>
17,400 TNL woohoo!
SO I pretty much decided, before wasting time running through an entire instance, that if someone is offering gold for runs or help, there is usually a reason they don't already have friends helping them with these things.
Uh-huh, but you're always in control 'cause you're cool. You'd never lose it, yourself. You're cool like the Fonz.
