End of Act 2 is in the middle, and Act 3 at the bottom.
So, I thought I'd post my character as I finished things. It's fun to see the end result, but might be fun to see interim characters too. So, I finally finished Act 1, so here you go:
Career: none yet
Head: Mauler's Maw (1a, 1b, fearless)
Cloak: Bat Cape (1a, 1s)
Gloves: Half-digested Gauntlets (1b, 1a, acid)
Chest: Studded Leather (2a)
Feet: Goblin Kickers (1s, 1b)
Main hand: Skullbreaker (3b, pound)
Left hand: Stone Shield (2a, 1s, slam)
Talisman: Demon's Heart (1s, trickster)
Necklace: Beads of Brilliance (1b, 1m)
Ring: Traveler's Band (1b, charm)
Ring: Weather Ring (lightning)
Backpack: Forest Dew (restore full health, 2 uses), Troll's Blood (+2 hp @start of every round, 2 uses), Gourd of Healing (+6 hp, 1 use), Gourd of Speed (+4 s, 1 use)
Misc: fine silver key
Notes: So, lots of gold. I only bought one helmet, that was it. Sold some crafted items for money, and thought I'd be silly and bet 100 gold and see what happened. Well, I happened to win...
I'm hoping for some more speed soon. 4 is doable with high armour, but it's not going to last. I've had a 3br weapon since the ratlings quest, and haven't regretted it. Nice to have that much damage.
With the legionaries and the last few quests, I had some great rolling on my hero's part, and bad rolls for the enemies. Course, early on I had more the opposite problem, usually. Enjoyed the end of Act 1 immensely due to this. Not quite rolling through things, but not having too much trouble.
I'm hoping to make this one an Inquisitor, any tips for that career with items? 2 weapons, weapon/shield?

Head: Nightguard cover (2b, 2a)
Cloak: Majestic Shoulders (2s, 2a, Royal regalia)
Gloves: Barbed bracers (2b, 2a, barbs)
Chest: Dragonscale mail (2s, 3a, second skin)
Feet: Majestic greaves (2s, 2b, Royal regalia)
Main hand: Velociferu (3s, 3b, riptose)
Left hand: Hydra's wing (2a, 2s, deflect)
Talisman: Braids of the bull (1b, charge)
Necklace: Diamond of the Tundra (1a)
Ring: Ring of the Marshes (1b, 1a, swamp legs)
Ring: Lupine Lapis (1br, bleed)
Backpack: 1 +10 hp potion, 1 +4b potion, 3 +6 hp potions, Book of Herbs, Dwarven Lore (I think the last 2 aren't named that exactly. In all cases, I just shortened them)
Misc: rune key, gold ring and a whole bunch of herbs getting tossed, I think.
Notes: And I thought 200 gold was a lot... I only bought the two books, I think. Is there any use for them now? My speed had been higher, but I was hardly doing any damage then. Plus, some of my skills are related to not winning a round, and were pretty much worthless.
Stats are a lot higher. I didn't expect that much change, I guess. Otherwise, on to Act 3, finally!

Name: Rithe - The Champion of Light (Bright shield)
Career: Inquisitor (Avenging spirit, Cleansing light)
Head: Crown of valour (5b, 5m, Command, Radiance)
Cloak: Iron mane (2s, 3a, Second skin)
Gloves: Bracelet of fury (1s, 4b, Adrenaline)
Chest: Redguard's tabard (2s, 4a, Iron will)
Feet: Boots of black fortune (2s, 2a, Feint)
Main hand: Retribution (sword) (3s, 6b, Feral fury)
Left hand: Talanost's wall (2s, 5a, Deflect)
Talisman: Blinding dust (1s, Decieve)
Necklace: Glacial shards (1s, 1b, Piercing)
Ring: Tooth n' claw (1s, 1b, Sideswipe)
Ring: Khana's Revenge (2br, bleed)
*Updated for The betrayed. You can see I have the Crown of valour now. Did find a couple of upgrades in the quest also.*
The only change that I'll make is that I think I'll give him the Crown of valour. I'll loose some armour, but that will be alright.
I think I reran Against All Odds a few times to make sure I got everyone alive. Although, I had a good run because I had 2 or 3 alive the first time. It's been a while, so I forget right now.
The 15 speed really helped. Toss in Cleansing light and I didn't get too far below full health for a while there. And to think, I wanted to try and get the ring Hunger from defeating the Icelock with Arthurian. Speaking of which, I managed to save the horn for later.
And somehow I missed where to use the rune key. Drat.
Now, what to go for next. I'm thinking maybe an Assassin.
