Quest to +9 Dagger.

The Methodology
Devote all my time when playing that game on that single cause.
My goal is to make a +9 one handed weapon. Im at +4 right now, and have a +2, and two +1s in the bank. On top of that I have 60 mets(my warehouses are full). I just turned level 80 and plan on being that level for a while.

The Reason
I feel that accuracy and damage of a +9 dagger with penetration is the best onslaught in the game. Its something to do. When you devote yourself to one cause you have 0% chance to waist money. Think about it; all the supers, dbs, +1 armor, uniques, and all that stuff you purchase. If you focused all that money into one goal, you would have a greater effect, hence a +6 or +7. The last reason is that given, daggers only flaw is infact its minor damage, if it was increased it would be flawless .

The Hunt
As you know the amount of time it takes to reach this goal is all based on blessings(im Christian). Last night I found a +1 coronet and a +1 warrior helm in 15 minutes of gameplay... Thats 1.1kk without lifting a finger. I will sell those and and then buy yet another +1. I hunt macquee around ape city(they drop more mets than doves, honestly). Also while hunting theres the chance of me finding money, uniques, and such. I have another account but I dont want to mine as it takes time away from hunting.

Sell the Meteors?
No. Even though I dont plan on using them any time soon, I like having them. Knowing their there. Knowing that everyone is scrapping to buy just one, when I have 60(yes I am boasting). Im level 80 using a level 55 refined axe and an Elite +4 level 75 dagger. I like how much damage penetration takes off and the idea that if I chose to upgrade it would do so much more.

Support the Cause
Im on Diamond server. TrojanFury. Guild: Angelic.
If anyone is able to bargain with me. Like sell me +1 for 650k or 500k then please feel free.

on top of that you'll have to level penetration which is insanely hard to level(quite possibly the hardest skill to level in the game). so good luck with that.

Heh heh thats cool. Although I must say, it would have been better to go on a quest to make something like a Blade to +9. But you have your mind set on the goal of a +9 dagger, so have fun.

if that is your goal... by all means.. go for it.

suggestion though? LEVEL UP!!!!!!!!!!

once you hit level 120 its easy as hell to 'hunt'. Hawkings give decent gold/items and once you are 120 you should be able to 1-hit them with ease.

Also about the +ing of weapons, I think that the higher the + on a weapon, the smaller the actual 'damage' of the weapon come into effect.

I'll try to explain. if you have a normal club and a normal dagger, the max damage between the two at level 115 + is probably (just guessing here) about 1K=1.5K depending on the quality of the weapon. But the '+'s give the SAME added damage. So with a +9 club and a +9 dagger, yeah the difference in max 'damage' would still be that 1K=1.5K or whatever the difference was to begin with. But the +s would be adding the SAME to both weapons.

So maybe I'm just messed up in the head, but to ME the difference between weapons lessen slightly the higher the +'s go. Of course the 'skills' may bring more of an effect, but with rage the damage is what? 140%? something like that.. who knows.. I'm probably way off..~L~ but penatration fixed is 240% that would basically eleviate the difference.

damn I'm blabbing... so I'll just stop right here and yes I know how hard penetration is to level and how often both penetration and rage 'kick in'


Decado

P.S. good luck on your quest, you are going to need more patience than any person should ask for.

the cap's +9 but after +6 even, it gets insanly hard. highest + ive seen on american server is +7 for a 120 war helm, but theres a +8 and a +9 on the foreign servers. first person to show me a +9 gets a db from me
