    An interesting email

    I received an email from a friend of my daughter saying that he'd got bored with D2 and heard that I still played it so he sent me a stash. I still play 1.09 so there was nothing that I could use so I thought that it and see I there was anything worth giving away. There way lots of pgems, a good number of jewels, and some good middle level uniques like Valkyrie Wing, Lava Gout and War Traveller and then I found this:

    The Cat's Eye
    Amulet
    Required Level: 50
    Item Version: Expansion
    Item Level: 90
    Fingerprint: 0x1a19acf1
    +223 to Maximum Stamina
    +1011 Defense
    +173 Defense vs. Missile
    100% Increased Attack Speed
    102% Faster Run/Walk

    Something tells me that this item isn't quite genuine. :lol: Or maybe I'm just a bit over suspicious.

    This gets better and better he's got a Zod. :clap:

    Zod Rune
    Can be Inserted into Socketed Items

    Weapons: Indestructible
    Helms: Indestructible
    Armor: Indestructible
    Shields: Indestructible

    Required Level: 69
    Item Version: Classic

    Classic???

    And this:

    The Gnasher
    Sacred Armor
    'DolFalPulUm'
    Defense: 1778
    Durability: 59 of 60
    Required Strength: 232
    Required Level: 66
    Item Version: Expansion
    Item Level: 99
    Fingerprint: 0x554ff772
    +10 to Strength
    +196% Enhanced Defense
    All Resistances +15
    Replenish Life +7
    Socketed (4: 4 used)

    I think there's some heavy duty editing going on.

    Some times the files can get corrupted, which causes really bizarre stats on items. Of course, it could be hacked also, but my guess is that it's an unintentionally corrupted item.

    Edit: just read the second post, and I retract my statement about it not being a hack. :rolleyes:

    I wish I had a Gnasher Sacred Armor...

    :( :(


    For some strange reason, I think he cheated.

    :p

    This is why items from your daughters friends brothers uncles cat generally aren't considered a good thing. :D

    Funny stuff though.l

    Looks legit! :thumbsup:

    In any case that Sacred Armor is actually fair to poor. Those runes are pretty high for the stats. Then again, this is 1.09 I suppose.

    However, that Cat's Eye is amazing. Talk about solving all your IAS problems in one shot. Free up all your items from IAS concerns.

    Yay, classic zod! :lol:

    I don't get the second one though, why would someone make something with such crappy stats. :scratch:

    Isn't this the part where someone chimes in with, "Aw, come on! Yous guys don't trust anybody! Give him a chance!"

    And some folks wonder why we have such an aggressive stance on item legitimacy.

    For some reason, I didn't even find that funny.



    EDIT (to avoid the spammish scent): If even one innocent person was victimized by an overzealous forum police, I am saddened. I understand the need, but it seems like one questionable item will blow our world apart. To make jokes about people that are just plain nice and give benefits of the doubt before lighting a torch..., well, I made the above one-liner post. meh

    I've just come back from picking up my daughter from school and had a talk to the guy in question. It seems his idea of playing D2 is to hack a character and a few items and go around killing things, which is, I suppose, a legitimate style a play. He doesn't mp and couldn't care less about trading or forums, he said he just wants to have some fun. He just thought that I could make use of the items, plus, I think he's trying to get on my good side, he's had his eye on my daughter for quite some time. :D

    Mr. TheNix,

    I trust you will find that your daughter, because of her interaction as a friend with a known duper, has become tainted, and hence, so have you. The only way to restore your legit status in the eyes of this community is to delete her and start over from scratch.

    A statement to that effect will also be required.

    That's not something to do to get on your good side. I'd say he just blowed his chance away.

    @symeon: that was funny, but Nix may not like it I guess.

    @symeon - No chance of starting from scratch, plumbing was disconected years ago. :D

    @DM - I got a good sence of humour, anyway, I had a good laugh at the Gnasher.

    Oh dear,

    Sorry to hear that. In light of this, I suppose it's acceptable that you merely bathe her in holy water for forty days and forty nights, starting Sunday midnight (orthodox easter), and use that time to explain to her the evils of duping so she never talks to that guy again. Nothing less will be tolerated.

    Please don't delete the "classic" Zod, though. Can I offer you a green Collossus Blade for it?

    (Just so everybody understands my motivation and no "duper" - "hAxx0r" flame wars start, I just returned from the bike shop carrying the 4.8 mm stainless steel front disc that's well damaged from rust and has been causing me grief for 6 months now. There.)
