    My noob questions thread

    Re: My noob questions thread On my untwinked characters I always go for the cube first due to that I most likely have my inventory and stash full of misc stuff at that point. Regarding blocking, the block % rate on the stats of the shield is different than your actual blocking rate. Hover...

    Can Unique Items Drop twice for Same Charecter?

    Re: Can Unique Items Drop twice for Same Charecter? There was some speculation on it being possible on b.net if enough lag occurred to delay the the whole unique check-off process so that the next item could roll the same, but I've yet to see/read anything but speculation. Assume false until...

    The Mood Thread

    Re: The Mood Thread @TheNix: I think I've seen those movies. Didn't know they were based on your life :P My only complaint is to myself for playing HoMM3. I find myself looking away from the screen only to find that hours and days has gone by :/

    Matriarch Surnia_Ulula (lightning sorceress)

    Re: Matriarch Surnia_Ulula (lightning sorceress) Yes, it stacks with the fixed properties. Caster amulet crafting adds 3 fixed properties (5-10)% Faster Cast Rate Regenerate Mana (4-10)% + (10-20) To Mana and can get up to 4 additional affixes with high enough ilvl on the crafted amulet...

    What benefits can you get in doing FULL CLEARS?

    Re: What benefits can you get in doing FULL CLEARS? There's no advantage or disadvantage with it. You either do it because you enjoy it or you don't do it. I've never voluntarily done a full clear before and I doubt I ever will. Even less of a chance untwinked. That might change though if I...

    First journey into Hell. Input please!!

    Re: First journey into Hell. Input please!! Yeah, you should hold off on upping armors and the likes until your runewealth is somewhat larger. Added defense on your sorc should be of very little priority compared to everything else atm. Hell Andariel should be your next gear farming target...

    First journey into Hell. Input please!!

    Re: First journey into Hell. Input please!! If Ginther's Rift is all you have for the barb, then go with that. It handicaps him though as it is a one-handed weapon and he'd benefit a lot more from two-handers. You really want to aim for ethereal two-handed swords. 'Honor' in a two-handed eth...

    Meph-Running Times

    Re: Meph-Running Times There's 2 reasons I can think of why the "double unique from same monster/boss" rumour spread. First reason: People assume(d?) that when Meph dies, his drops gets generated all at the same time. Which is false. Every item gets generated in a sequential order. Even if two...

    Area 85 tournament 2011 - results thread

    Re: Area 85 tournament 2011 - results thread Congrats to all the participants! No Tyrael's this time though. I got myself a Cerebus' Bite during the first half hour or so which was pretty exciting, but got nada the last 2 1/2 hours I ran. I completely fell off the D2 wagon after that :/

    First journey into Hell. Input please!!

    Re: First journey into Hell. Input please!! Also remember to use Telekinesis against those CI/FI while your merc plinks/jabs/shoots/slashes at them (Rogue/Desert Warrior/Iron Wolf/Barbarian). TK will push them backwards and sometimes put them in hit recovery. This will lessen the damage your...

    v1.12 Frost Zealot help

    Re: v1.12 Frost Zealot help As for the chill effect on HF, monsters get more resilient through the difficulties. You can never chill more than 50. Most monsters have a chill effectiveness of 50/40/33 (Normal/Nightmare/Hell), though it can also be 50/40/25 or 50/33/25 on some creatures. Of...

    Checklist for starting hell?

    Re: Checklist for starting hell? Since you've found a Reaper, you might want to try it with an Eth rune in it. Decrepify has the advantage over Kelpie's 50% Slow (act boss cap) with reducing the damage done to your merc and increasing the damage your merc does (though this is insignificant)...

    Mercenary resilient against Hell mephisto

    Re: Mercenary resilient against Hell mephisto It's an elite armor nonetheless. The defence is lower because it isn't ethereal and not eth-bugged with the horadric cube. I still think you should test the woestave/shaftstop/kira's combo. You should also do Meph on p1 (if you aren't already)...

    Mercenary resilient against Hell mephisto

    Re: Mercenary resilient against Hell mephisto Some more info on your currently equipped gear, char level etc would also be nice to know and relevant. If you are looking to trade stuff (though you really don't need to), go for The Reaper's Toll (50% slow + 50% Damage Reduction). Or you could...
