During a TR train, you get plenty of time to talk about various things, but one thing always happens toward the end of a TR life, you begin talking and planning for the next life. So last life on Sinfully as a barb, her saves were not great. Samius suggested a Bard next life to help with the saves, so Sinfully is now a level 4 Bard.
So the plan this life is a 12 Bard/6 Fighter/2 Rogue. She will be doing War Chanter/Kensai using Falchons. Have to get all the use out of that green steel falchon I built that I can. She is a Half Elf with the Artificer Dilly. Mainly, I wanted to see what I could accomplish with the Arty Dilly, with an option to switch to Favored Soul if needed later, but so far, fun playing with scrolls and seeing them extended.
I also spent some time last night running challenges. I have not done many of these, but decided to work on my favor some as I still do not think buying Arty's should be required for VIPs. I did some solo runs, sort of learning some of the challenges. I was able to 2 star a couple and 1 star some others. I then joined a group and did some Epic level runs and was able to 3 star an elite. The TR Train group keeps talking about challenges, so some of those may be in the future.
