    Does anyone actually use white items in game?

    Just curious, I don't recall I ever equipped my char with white items, besides the ones it started with. Does anyone actually use white items on their char? Also, what the point of jeweler's item with no second mod, whoever came up with that brilliant idea.

    the jewelers armors that people actually want are like :
    jewelers (armor) of the whale
    jewelers (armor) of stability
    and i at least imbue a white item before i wear it, so no i dont wear white colored items

    I usually only use them early on. The only real exceptions are caster gear with the right +skills.

    Besides the very early game, the only white items I use are the character-specific items that have nice +skills - normally necro heads, and druid pelts. I've used some of those well into NM with my untwinked characters.

    I'm always looking for high quality white gloves and circulets for crafting. Not for general play.

    you need magical (blue) items for crafting... white stuff is for imbuing.

    Necro wands in particular can spawn some nasty mods, and still be white. I tend to stick with that early +3 to one skill wand, till I can use a runeword or unique. I'd rather be boss running than shop farming, after all.

    Besides that, it doesnt take much to gamble yellows into pretty much any slot. Wealth armor + chance guards, and you can pick up 300k pure gold in a few minutes of serious hunting.

    I had a +3 to Blessed Hammer and +1 to Concentration aura on my Hammerdin from Malah :)

    edit: And it was white.

    Wands, staves, orbs, and other things with plusses to skills I want are useful, but they're even better if you get Larzuk to socket them. Which makes them stop being white, I guess. Most of the time, there's no good reason to use white items unless you're deliberately handicapping yourself. I've thought of doing that, actually... I believethe D2 storyline implies that the magic items Diablo left lying around in Tristram were trapped with demons, to torment and possess the foolish adventurers who sought to take them. A good reason to distrust magic items, methinks... Conquering Hell using only unenchanted gear would be difficult and might be fun.

    I've used a couple of good wands and staffs early on for +1 to skill points for sorc/necro, but it doesn't take long to find something better...they have been helpful for the first few levels, but thats about it.

    Back in LOD 1.07 I had a +3 to both Whirlwind and Berserk barb helm. Pity it only had 30 or so defense, but I still used it for quite some time.
