farting bob's top 5 most useless items so i was thinkign during this particulary lazy thursday, what items have i got that i have no use for? see, i think about irrelevent things all the time, so this thought was just grouped with all the other random thoughts. but i had ATMA open at the time, so started idly looking though my normals for some really pathetic items. so, after looking at all the base items, i have gathered up enough brian power (it took a burger to build it up) to write my list of 5. it dont include any sets and uniques, just the basic item. caps yes, they are normally the first defence you wear, but come on, no character, ever, has depeneded on there 2 def at any time. a quill rat would rip this hat to shreads easily. and has aybody ever looked good in a cap? the stats on these things are very very unintersting, so i wont even discuss them here. scale mail this armour, whcih has the same defence as a breast plate (roughly) is very useless indeed. lets compare it with the breast plate. scale mail: 57-60 def - 44str req - heavy armour - max sockets 2 breast plate 50-65 def - 30 str req - light armour - max sockets 3 case closed. light belt yes, it wouldnt feature on any peoples list, but thats because nobody has ever remembered using it and can realise how useless it is. lets go through its good points now... ok, and now lets go through the bad points. this belt only holds 8 potions, the same as a standard sash. it has a incredible 3 def, 14 durability. this compares to the beloved sash, which is onyl behind by 1 in def and 2 in durabiltiy, but the sash is much more commonly dropped, is alot cheaper at vendors (where most early armour is found) and has the mystical cracked sash. no-ones cares if you have a cracked light belt do they? ive seenpeople kill baal with a cracked sash on, have you ever done so with a light belt? scythe despite the good loks, and the joy of owning your own blood stained scythe, this item is rather useless. as with the scale mail, the scythe is outclassed by somethign whcih is available at the same time, in this case, its the poleaxe. it has the same str req, but no dex req, unlike the scythe, it does more dmg (in fact, almost twice as much on average), the poleaxe can be handled by the act 2 mercs. in fact the only thing the scythe has going for it is the faster attack speed, but you can do faster with other weapons around that time. reinforced mace the elite version of the mace, this weapon is very rarely used (it doesnt have a unique version either for some reason, at least, not on diabloii.net). it is possible to think of many 1 handed weapons that beat this 1. low dmg, quite high str req (only barbs or pallys will normally be able to handle this before hell) normal speed, only 2 sockets max and it hardly sounds lke a great weapon. anyway, by lvl 53 when you can use this weapon you will start to be wearing more sets and unqiues, and will often find that even a good rare reinforced mace is not good enough. they are my reasons why i feel these 5 are most useless items in the game. i hope youve read them all, cause now you get to decide which of these 5 sorry excuses for D2 items is the worst. i ave written the in no particular order, so its up to you. if i can be bothered (that is a rather enormous if by the way) ill do one of these 'farting bob's top 5....' every week or so, thatis if people are interested. if you feel that you have an item (not set or unqiue btw) that deserves a place inthe top 5, post it here with your reasons! also, to keep this thread alive some what, post what you voted for, and what made you do so. votes close some time in the future.
