    A question

    Cuople of days ago, I started a new sorceress, a blizz/hydrasorc, which was fun to play..

    Then when I at last got to level 30 with her, I'm thinking like "yeah, at last, hydra". I'd been saving up skillpoints, since I hadn't had anything to invest in before level 24, and had about 10 extra points, and then in my excitment I accidently invest a point in frozen orb. :confused: :mad:

    Do you people think it would be right to use some sort of program to take that one skill away? (No, I really don't want to make the charecter again.)
    If yes, can you tell me what program I should look for, since I haven't found any that have worked with 1.10..

    no.
    but what you do on your own pc is your own choice, so as long as you dont trade/mp feel free to do it.
    google would be your best bet.


    IMO blizz/hydra is a bad combo as they both have synergies, id go hydra/ orb, but GL with it anyway

    It may anger you right now to have spent that one point on the wrong skill, using some kind of editor to change that is cheating. But think about it, a single point isn't that much and hey it makes your sorc different :thumbsup:

    I'm pretty sure nobody would tell you here which program to use for such an action.

    There isnt much point in using an editor to save 1 point, although if you want to, thats fine, try google.

    No, using a editor for any purpose would not be right for me.

    But he, do on your own computer as you like, just stay away from trade/doing giveaways/mp and you'll be just fine.

    Linking to hacks is forbidden, so don't expect any. Google should solve this.

    Normally, one "wasted" skillpoint is no huge problem. And rebuilding from lvl 30 should be fairly easy, specially if you have a little twink gear.

    Just so I know what wrong with having 1 point in Frozen Orb?? thats a great skill to have in those odd situations like when blizzard isn't hitting around a corner you can fire a FO right by the wall and the backwards flying bolts will go around the corner. 1 point really isn't a waste, with the +skills you have for blizzard FO should be what skill level 8-15? At slvl 9 FO is effective in Hell even with an assassin.

    It's a mistake, In the fairness of the game it happens get over it and move forward or rebuild from scratch you can second generation your items to the new character. Everyone at one point in time has made a similar mistake, I had one when I was building a single tree character I accidently placed a point in another tree and had to restart, luckly I was only on like level 15-18 so restarting wasn't bad, now if that happened with my dual elemental druid I would be pissed off. He's level 86 IIRC.

    Using an editor is unlegit but do what you want on your own computer, google is a nasty world be careful if you use downloaded programs from the internet.

    Out of curiosity, is it frowned upon to use an ATMA backup of your character? If using ATMA, he could just use the most recent backup that is before the point was applied...

    BTW, FO does rock though... not a wasted point imho

    I agree with San about it being a wasted point. Sorceresses have a premium of spell abilities and if I doubt I'd find room or ever make use of orb if I was in his situation.

    But personally I think that one skill point placed in the wrong ability isn't going to hurt your build. It might drive you nuts but it won't really change how well you play your character.

    If it bothers you that much, yes start again before you invest too much time into it.

    Thats just as frowned on. A good rule of thumb is not to use ATMA to do anything that you wouldn't be able to do (even if slower) without it. I.E. you 'can' create MP games to mule, etc.

    Yeah, what I figured. Better than downloading and using a mod though, IMO.

    Honestly, you shouldn't worry much about it. Almost every single one of my characters have a wrong point somewhere (i didn't misclick...i am just a noob and don't think early enough). My favourite barb has a bash of 2 while he is a frenzy specialist and has no need for it. Trust me it didn't ruin the char. Just think of which would give you the worse feeling, having 1% of your points misplaced, or your character being "fake". Certainly the sooner is irratating, but the latter would simply dishearten me when it comes to struggling through the tedious/difficult parts of the game somewhat later.

    i had to remake my sorc 3 times because i can't chose what skills to pick. first i wanted pure blizz. then i wanted a backup skill with fireball. now i want pure blizz again. one of them was a clvl 75. a real bummer. but you have to suck it up and remake if your unhappy with the char. no use playing a char you're not happy with.

    maybe it's because i don't take this GAME too seriously, but why should he not recover the ATMA backup file? after all, he's not getting any advantage. he's not trying to reroll quest drops. he's not editing skills that he effectively used at early levels. he's not leveling up, starting in act 5, getting free skills or anything, just going back in time!

    almost all the games other than Diablo have the unsaved playing option, and the reason Diablo doesn't have it is the item manipulation, i suppose. not something like this.

    of course, the other alternative is he can restart the char and provided that he has a decent connection, get rushed by a lvl80 char to his current lvl in half an hour, and have double the items he currently has. i don't think it's more legit, at least theoretically!

    Games that are multiplayer, character based do not usually allow you to retrieve previous saves.

    Yes he can certainly do what he pleases but this is a community and a community has rules so ton interact (mp, trade in this case) with that community one must follow them. Sometimes it can be difficult to define where the line is draw if you start accepting some things and not others (slippery slope) because it can be argued both ways. Sometimes trading a char can be harmful and sometimes it can not. Since it isn't something that would happen a lot even if allowed it is much easier to put out a blanket "NO" than to try to define 20 pages of rules on the subject describing under what circumstances it is ok and what aspects of it are cheating.

    I'd say the alternative is to try a char and within a day or two you'll know if you like it. Sometimes you know sooner than that, and if you are too impatient for a day of gaming then lay off the sugar :cool:
