    Greetings from a newbie

    Hi, just joining thought I might join your nice little community here!
    I wouldn't say I'm a newbie to Diablo, but I'm a newbie to this forum.
    I've been playing Diablo since it first came out, but I had stopped for like a year, and I suddenly had an itch to play it again, so here I am.
    Anyway, I had a few questions:

    1) Does using an exp shrine give your merc extra exp too?

    2) With stuff like "Increase maximum mana by X%", say you have two items that increase mana, one with 20% and another with 40%, will that increase your mana by 60%, or increase by 20% and then another 40%?

    3) +Skills doesn't affect synergies at all, right?

    4) Can anyone tell me where I can go to get hacks? Eg. Item creators, char trainers, etc.......................................just kidding :flip:

    Thanks guys

    Welcome to the forum! Enjoy yourself while you're here.

    1.) not sure.
    2.) 60%. They're additive.
    3.) check.
    4.) no. :p

    Anyway, enjoy the build guide thread, compiled by Borlag, read the FAQ, which it sounds like you've already done, and enjoy! :) :thumbsup:

    edit: haha, jeza. pwned by two minutes. :p

    Welcome to our humble community.

    Please take a moment and tell us about yourself, what characters you enjoy playing, and what your least favorite vegetable is.

    Welcome to the SPF! Looks like you got all the questions answered. There are seveeral lately who say they played D2 since it came out, and then took a break from it.

    I always say, once hooked... you'll always come back.

    Welcome to the SPF, have fun :)

    PS: +skills do affect the synergy effect that prayer has on meditation and cleansing, but they don't help with any of the other synergies, maybe you wanted to build a cleric? :D

    Wow, such a warm welcome. I'm still surprised at how a friendly and harmonious community can exist on any forum. Isn't it great?

    Thanks to everyone who answered my questions.

    A bit about my Diablo habits:
    I suppose I enjoy playing all the characters, as they're all a different challenge, although I've never gotten a necro past lvl 20. Currently, I have a meteorb sorc (the one from the guide), and she is smashing her way to hell at lvl 70. I must say, that guide is excellent. I also have a Werebear druid in the works at lvl 22.

    I've never played on Battle.net (except on the open beta), and I'm fine with that. Single player is fun enough as it is, and ATMA has made it so much more wonderful.

    As to least favourite vegetable...................there's this melon type thing that my mum grows in the garden, I don't know what it's called, but I hate it. It's only taste is bitter, there is no other word to describe it, and I have no idea how people eat it. I can't actually see how any living person can enjoy eating it. It's like the taste is a defence mechanism of the plant to STOP things eating it. My parents seem to like it though.

    I blame Durf for my hatred of califlower (sp?).

    Greetings Vidaeus, and welcome to our forums. Please remember to read the FAQs and behave in front of our elite uniques.

    Feel free to drop by at the local forum bar, the EMB, for a quiet drink or two - the first one's on me. :drink:

    Don't worry about vegetables - the real question is how you put butter on your sandwiches - one slice or two. (Hint: The one-slicers are heretics and the zero-slicers are even worse) :lol:

    Enjoy your time here.

    Amen brother! Down with sandwiches buttered on 1 side :lol:

    Welcome Vidaeus :wave: I wouldn't bother to reply to your questions after everyone else has answered them but feel free to ask anything else D2 (or not) related.
