Basic (n00b) questions! Mostly amazon and gameplay related. First I want to say that this is officially my 1st post. I have been playing Diablo since it came out, but only single player (no realm). I recently re-started to play, and I really wanted to play a javazon, mostly poison based. My main focus has always been the skill/stat points, since equipment was always so unpredictable, and in SP there is no trading anyway. When I restarted I decided to read some guides about javazons, and I stumbled over the equipment sections: Titan's, annihilus, torch, some unique/uber gear seem to be almost a requirement. I had to seach internet databases to see what they were, hehe. It just seems that those guides are not really intended for people that want to start from scratch in SP for example. Is it because it's impossible to finish Hell in SP (full clears) with a javazon?:scratch: I kinda doubt it! I mostly chose to play on realms for Uber Diablo and such, which are not available in SP, otherwise... SP is lag-free! So, being such a n00b, by your standards, I have some questions: 1) How in the HELL do I get Titan's ??? I'm in Hell Act3 Clvl 79 (so lots of runs there with about 200 MF) and I haven't got Titan's dropped! Some guy online was nice enough to give me Demon's Arch, which is good, but for LF, and even PJ I would prefer Titan's. They're supposed to be very cheap (yeah, if you sell them to a merchant you get 35k for them, that's cheap indeed!) 2) How come everyone online teleports, casts BO, and has Auras (Fan) (even if thery're not Sorc, Barb, or pally), Ohh.... yeah Runewords... How come everyone has one of those Uber runewords? I was lucky to find a Lum Rune in NM, but apart from that all I have is under Dol. They were supposed to be rare, but everyone, high enough level has them (except me and most n00bs of course) 3) If i trade for Uber-gear, how do I know it's legit? (kinda rethoric question, not many ppl seem to care if they are legit or not, they just wanna be gods!) 4) Why is poison damage (and PJ for that matter) so underrated? Monsters heal a lot! and if you need to go to town to refresh, or pots, when you come back all monsters are healed.... usually. I made an experiement: I poisoned a group of monsters with PJ until they had about 1/2 HP. 15 min later they still had 1/2 HP. What's the deal? Honestly I haven't even noticed any monsters healing, since I always PJ, then get personal (w/ jab). People seem to have some trouble in Uber tristram where PMH doesn't work, how about poison? 5) On this thread: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=344306&highlight=valk+gear some dude (read Leohappy) posts some very interesting aspects about the Valkyrie... how did he get that info? I did notice a differnce in weapon appearance, so I guess she uses a spear, then pike (after lvl 7), but the rest? Also ppl say that Valkyries HP scale on difficulty and # of players... but I always see the same HP displayed in the skill info. 6) How come everyone has Annihilus charms (except n00bs like me, of course). I mean I haven't yet seen any "SoJ sold to merchants" messages yet, and then again, there's slim chances to get Diablo Clone, and again, is he gonna drop Anni 100% of the time? (kinda doubt that). And what's with the Soj frenzy? Cube recipies (which kinda suck) and currency. I've only seen a SoJ in D2C v1.1, and that's it! I also played quite a few hundred hours though... Beside all this, this forum is pretty helpful, and it's good it has an abbreviation lists, although it took me 1 month to find out what AC was, hehe, you all probably know (except n00bs like me again). This was kinda long post, but I should've registered months ago and post questions as i find them. Cheers, Alecz.
