Isn't the save time fast whenever you haven't spawned any monsters in that act? As in you can fast save in act 1 if you have been running in act 3, etc etc?
This. Also be prepared for ATMA or GoMule to flatly reject certain items and kaboom them. It's the cost of time travel, not everything makes it through the DeLorean.Also keep in mind that early classic versions are tricky, and in order to avoid your items being corrupted, you should first forward it to 1.07 and open it there, before forwarding it to 1.13d or whatever.
I always use Shiver Armor. It slows melee attackers when they begin the animation, instead of only after you are hit (as Frozen Armor does). Not getting hit at all is better than not getting hit a second time.Is there some consensus on which sorc cold armor is best/worst?
