When you reach terror you can just kill Griswold in Tristram, he will give you a 'special box'. Cube that with an Oil of Renewal from Charsi, it will generate from one arcane shard to 3 arcane crystals (!) every time.

Yup did my LC1 challenge and got my class charm, thanks for the tips I'll try this!

@Others Already did the quest unfortunately.

My usual method of farming arcane crystals in Hatred is to just do Mephisto runs. He drops 2 uniques per kill and you can get to him fairly easy on single player (revealed map doesn't get reset unless you change difficulties).

But more than that I suggest not spending too much time farming arcane crystals as a new player. Any time you spend at low levels farming cheap gear is time you could have been spending at level 120 where you're drowning in TUs and are tackling hard content.
Instead for leveling I suggest using honorific gear (cubed with the right mystic orbs) in at least two of your equip slots, using a TU for a body armor, and a runeword or a TU for your weapon. Don't bother uptiering the TUs from tier 1/2 to 6, just remake them at tier 6 when you have enough stats and level to equip them. You can get gold to make honorifics by farming Grubber elites in the first two A2 desert areas.

Tokens are needed for the laz book upgrade too.

Valk prime is a sick weapon, im not sure if you ever had it, but its an untimered teleport on target monster tantrum clone (i think its a bit weaker than tantrum iirc). Thats crazy, you can farm the a2 sewers easily with it, you can skip the first part of the witch, brachy and other ubers by just teleporting trough monsters to go ahead, without even killing them if you dont want.

Id say yshari is pretty long and complicated as well, uldy and witch also, probably.

Nah I've never had it. At the moment the recipe itself is daunting to look at. Perhaps in a few months..
( Unless there is some other way to get sky siege? )

Next I have a question about lion stance. Does the 'damage increased by' only affect physical damage reduction or other damage as well.
I've noticed the damage increase keeps decreasing with every level. Does it go to zero or even positive damage reduction?

This is one of the annoying things everyone complains about at some point. There's a 1 in 7 chance of finding the right charm, so with 20 kills there's a 95+% chance that you should have found it already. But I guess you've just been unlucky.  

I recommend only farming for it as late as possible (after maybe one kill at a low level for the challenge). You're not going to gain anything from the charm until level 90 anyway, and by farming it at level 78 or whatever you should be able to kill the Necromancer rapidly over and over.

Edit: Left advice for your future chars/anyone else interested.

actually, i was talking about the hammer of the taan judges, which is a 1/12 chance iirc? it took a while to get it, at least 30 runs, but i did get a near perfect roll so worth it

Oh yeah that's even worse. Then 20 runs with no drop wasn't all that strange.
The charm is pretty lame too, ever since the block bonus was removed years ago. Now there's really no point in running K3kBA just for the charm. It's more of a minor bonus when farming in there.

Right at the beginning it is the secret jewel bonus (any jewel in any grey already upgraded item), Tal runes a bit later, then re-rolled rare jewels for break points and -10% requirements and magic find, after that perfect pink stones or lvl 35 runes for more block…  (lucky upgrade all your jewels beforehand)
Roll +2 skills on tiered rare body armour while still on the green in hatred (scales and chains tier 3 are enough for it) and make sure your amulet is lucky upgraded with +1 skills every time…  
As for them runes, the main one kicks in at lvl 45 in gloves (Pul runeword) –can try Lum rune in helms but a rare circlet should be better even before that after several potions of renewal…
Your heavy belt should be unique asap and maybe boots at the beginning (swap them for yellow ones with +1 Sin skills at your earliest convenience)
Look after your knife and shield mainly by rerolling fresh yellow pick-ups and do the same for your jewellery… unique and rune ones are nice and fun but not the best  Idea 
I like perfect rainbow stones on my weapon but that might be just because of the way they look Wink
Some people are using sockets for boosting resistances, but them jewels already used for FCR/FHR/IAS/FBR and –% req usually bear some anyway and tha orb serves well to resist too…
Basically, your sockets content will change accordingly to what stage of progress you’re in…  Mr Green

@Soponator: I've finally found those lifecrushers thanks to your suggestion Smile

One more farming tip Im looking for: where should I farm for SU rings ? I seem to find lots of rings doing cow runs but of course those are rarely sacred tier. Duncraig is pretty good but Im wondering it there are better spots. Maybe fautz? I seem to remember jewelry is pretty common there. Im on omega so no ultimative only ubers Smile
