    Hello!!!

    Hello All .

    My name is Michael Frankovich and I've been playing Diablo II and Diablo II LoD for ... about 3 years. I mostly play on BattleNet (currently have a lvl 96 ladder hammerdin whose... 190? on the overall ladder), but have decided that during March break I would start a single player character to see how it goes.

    I'm new to SP (have been "lurking" here for a bit), and just want to say hello :)


    Anyways I guess I'll have to read up on that ATMA thing if I ever want to do anything in SP... lol... hope to talk to you all soon and often.


    Franko

    Thanks all for your welcomes.
    I downloaded Atma, and I'm seeming to get the hang of it (transfered a nice 12fhr gc to my sorc for now)... wow that is so much easier than on BNet.. :thumbsup: to the maker

    Did a full clear up to Cold Plains and now have a lvl 7 fire/lightning MF sorc BurninLightning

    welcome, hope u have a nice time here and stay even after your march holiday. have to ask though, where did you get the GC from, if the sorc if your first SP character, and that kinda charm dont drop in blood moor without serious MF and running...
    anyway, im sure theres a good reason.

    MY first character...
    My brother used to play Diablo on Single Player, and since he doesn't anymore I thought I could steal it from him :lol: (hense used ATMA to mule it...)

    I do not believe in using ANY hacks or tweaking (i think thats what i means) my characters. Pure legit baby!!
    So far all my sorc has found was on her way to the Den in the Blood Moor:
    Small Charm of Life
    Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
    Required Level: 14
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 1
    Fingerprint: 0xf024a64b
    +9 to Life


    And yeah I'll keep playing it after the March Break.. I didnt just come to leave :thumbsup:

    Welcome to the SPF! Lots of us are former b-netters (including myself) and don't be surprised if this one week of SPing gets you hooked for a very very long time... :thumbsup:

    For starters call me Franko :thumbsup:

    On the item find issue, I've played Closed BNet too much to even think of hacking. Anything I do find will be my own you can trust me there

    I think the word you're looking for is 'twinking', not 'tweaking'. Here's the three terms commonly used:

    Hacking: This refers to using certain third-party programs and/or exploiting certain bugs in the game to give unnatural advantages to your character. Maphack as well as many items (ie, ITH items, hex charms, and the infamous 'white' rings/gloves of v1.09 are good examples). These ruin the game in a HUGE way for those of us who play legit.

    Duping: This refers to making copies of items, either through exploiting game bugs, or using third-party programs. Note most (all?) hacked items are widely duped. The duping of non-hacked items ruins the economy, and totally skews the rarity of these items, but it's not nearly as damaging to the game as the hacking. The only thing that is worse about duping is it makes it impossible to be absolutely certain an item is legit unless you actually see it drop, which means if you trade, especially with strangers, odds are very good you'll acquire one or more duped items.

    Twinking: This refers to obtaining legitimate items through item finding and/or trade, and then transferring them to a different (often low-level) character to give them a head start. Twinking is regarded by most (including myself) as totally okay, except in certain competitions, where the idea is to start everyone off on a level playing field. When you see low-level characters loaded up with unique/set gear, especially stuff they barely meet the level and stat requirements for, odds are most of it is twinked gear. The charm you grabbed from your brother's character, for example, is considered a 'twink' item.

    Hope this helps clarify the terms.

    Welcome to the SPF Franco, I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself here. And you'll definitely want ATMA for muling in SP. You can check out the stickied thread on it here, and of course ask any questions. Enjoy your stay. :thumbsup:

    Hey :wave:
    Enjoy your time here and have a drink at the EMB.

    @ bob: I'm pretty sure 12 FHR GC's can drop in Act One anyway.
