Did a run this afternoon from act 1 to end boss with only 1 death on Elite. Got about 32 uniques w/o gambling. It was really fun.
I had 0 luck bonus. I just used my Dwarfking outfit and Longclaw sword. Swapping in new/old pieces as upgrades came to me.
This was my haul at the end of the session:
Everything in the stash was a drop. My flip weapon is a dropped cannon. But I am using Old Irongob from the last quest now.
War Titan and final boss gave me the most trouble. I had to kite them for ages. Alternating between sword/shield and cannon. I died in phase 2 of the final boss when I ran out of health potions and mana pots. I just couldn't kite all the adds and deal with his huge dash attack. Too much.
I'll move up in difficulty once I finish it once. I'm at the point now where I'm about to spend points just to get the nag icon off the loading screen.
RIP OpieTRUNDLEFACING your lanes, since free week S3W3
I kinda like that vagueness. Figuring things out for the first time is usually fun.
Playing Hardcore Elite. Loving the game, although all of my friends are horrible at gaming so they play Plushcore, but whatever. Bad players need games too I guess.
It's really not a huge deal because it's not like this is an MMO where certain specs are expected/required for raid comps, but it would be nice if they could refund stat/skill points when they nerf/change skills. At the very least they could add respec potions that don't give you a "cheater" title.
Also, I was wondering how long it would take them to fix the drag an item to the buyback tab bug. Saw a vid where a guy dragged gamble items to the buyback tab for roughly 30 minutes and was able to full gear all classes in uniques and the best part was that it was super cheap because it only cost the buyback price. Pretty much ruins the point of the game IMO but it was an amusing bug to say the least.

Fishing in this game: what is the point? Is there anything of real value to gain from it? I see an achievement for catching 1000 fish and I'm wondering if I'll actually get anything worthwhile out of the time investment besides satiating the completist inside of me. Apparently completist isn't a word, so I've decided to coin it. From now on there will be a fine and a spanking whenever someone uses it without my permission. Let it be so.
I've got some real nice items out of fishing, mostly for my pet. One such item is called "Epic Collar" or "The Epic Collar" can't remember exactly, anyway it's loaded with armor of all types and some nice equip bonuses and I'm pretty certain I got it from fishing. There's also the fish themselves which can really help if you're struggling in some encounters with stuns, health to master on hit, slows and so forth.
Fishing is mostly pet related buffs, few items (again mostly pet collars and tags) , every now and then maybe a piece of gear or some potions, perhaps a spell. I don't personally sit in town and fish but I DO make sure to empty out all the fishing holes in the overworld / dungeons. IDK I guess I just always think of it as just another version of a chest that has a mini game tied to it. Doesn't take long to do and I'm always in need of more vendor goods to sell, not to mention the rare chance at getting some of the permanent pet transforms.
On topic of fishing holes, does anyone know if MF boosts fishing hole loot?
Is fishing luck in TL2? I remember it from TL1 but I have yet to see anything with fish luck on it after roughly 100 hours with the game so far. Just got lvl 100 on my elite fire mage last night wooo woooo.
