the numbers 7 and 10 represent game versions, right?
Wow! Thanks a lot RTB! *worship*Found this in a .txt file from 2005:
I think so - the average damage is still 5.5 lower than a serker's. Ultimately it depends on what BPs you want or can reach, as always ;-) Besides - Scourges look awful...So we can omit the thought of a 1.07 scourge beating a 1.07 serker then?
The ring recipe can be used with ANY quality gem, and only requires ONE gem versus 6 for the amulet recipe. I'm just curious at what point it is more beneficial to upgrade for the 6 perfect gems? For example, do you only want to cube up flawless gems for the ammy recipe?It is also very unlikely that youâ€™ll get a useful unique (sets are a much better proposition) as the chances of getting a unique is 1:1000 (sets are 1:125 and rares are 1:200). Even then the relative rarities of nagel, manald and SoJ is 80, 40 and 1 respectively. So donâ€™t hold your breath.
Even plain magic rings/ammys can be pretty cool - the ability to have 60%+ to a single resist, or up 50%MF etc with added res is pretty handy and can fill what would otherwise be gaping equipment holes.I know someone cubed Sarachen's Chance (which is great in 1.07). A lousy roll, but still a sarachen's with extra res. Personally, I'm looking at the potential of rares. +2 skilltab 10fcr with some stats and that res....
Say, I got a question about this. I got 134% MF, but I don't get any set items from Nightmare Blood Raven or Andariel. Just blues and an occasional yellow. I guess this breakpoint is incorrect? Does anyone have any information about this?Also, re-read the sections on MF, unless you hit certain breakpoints its just not worth it (the first one is 127% to get NM bosses to drop nearly all sets with a small chance for rare/unique).
Should say "act bosses". Andariel won't give many sets since she can drop so few base items. However, she shouldn't be able to drop blue rings or amulets, at least that should be very rare. Try her a few more times and check magic items for double dura.Say, I got a question about this. I got 134% MF, but I don't get any set items from Nightmare Blood Raven or Andariel.

Yes, you were absolutely right! I should've given it more tries, but I didn't realize the base items were so low. I've found a great Mephy map and I'm running him now. Thanks!Should say "act bosses".

Thanks for all the advice; I can see you've put time in it. My Sorceress is now level 63, but I've already gotten the Hell WSK waypoint. I did most of Hell with negative resist until I shopped a 3os shield and made an Ancient's Pledge. Yeah, it was quite frustrating at times, but I found MFing quite unrewarding and leveling not very useful, because I had already maxed FO and SF.So the real question is, what is your plan for 1.07?
Crafting gets good above L78, and results in some truly eye-popping hax (23% LL blood gloves, anyone?). Racking in LK sounds like your best bet for LoH and scepters. M'Vavina's True Sight can be dropped by A5 uniques (I got mine from Edritch). Unique jewelry is available from Hell Andy & Meph w/556% MF (I got Atma's Scarab from this before I got bored).I've mainly started up 1.07 to get some of the relatively easy to find great stuff: Laying of Hands (does this one need to be racked?), max damage/resist/ilevel 99 charms, unique rings/amulets, Holy Shield scepters, M'avina's True Sight, etc. I'll also try to craft some resist set jewelry. Lastly, I'd like to have a shot at racking an Arkaine's Valor and a Wizardspike as well. I will probably not be working on completing grails.
Sorry for the major bump, but I would like to know the ideal crafting conditions for the ring mentioned here, as it would be perfect for my new 1.07 sorc. Even half m/k and no fcr would be greatAny q gems for the rings. The relative rarity for soj is the same, eg 1:31000 for the right clvl. I'd prefer cubing sapphires with a low lvl character for the greater chance of a triumphant ring of the apprentice (POTENTIAL 37manaperkill/10fcr ring).
