Feel no shame. When I started I didn't know how to do it either. Be advised that the only 100% safe way to transfer is buy "trading" the item to a friend then rejoining with the mule and getting them to "trade" it back to you. Here's how you mule:Grignr said:How do you mule??
Mages add extra dammage vs all opponants, and kill immune to physical/stoneskin unique monsters. Amp will not remove their physical immunities. Decrepify will remove even fewer physical immunities. You can expect to meet 8-10 of these uniques with unremovable physical immunity while playing through hell. Since this is hardcore, it can be very dangerous to suddenly be unable to hurt things. What if he notices too late?Lyrs said:you don't need mages, a preference. amplify damage and decrepfiy will remove physical immunities making them easy prey for your skeleton mob.
Yes you can for sure be locked out of a game if you exit/enter to quick it has happened to me many a time. You will have 5 minutes before the game goes down..so there is no real rush...so take your time...its really worth it.sawse said:Feel no shame. When I started I didn't know how to do it either. Be advised that the only 100% safe way to transfer is buy "trading" the item to a friend then rejoining with the mule and getting them to "trade" it back to you. Here's how you mule:
1. create a passworded normal difficulty game. Use the same name and password every time so you don't forget it. When you are tired, you can forget the game you just made very easily, trust me. I've done it.
2. Stay in the game for a minimum of 5 minutes. I prefer 10 minutes myself.
3. Exit the game without dropping anything.
4. Re-enter the game, thus ensuring that the game has been perm'd.
5. Drop the items you want to mule in act one town.
6. Exit the game and re-enter with the mule character
7. Pick up the items. Muling complete
Some people say that if you enter/exit too rapidly that you can get locked out of the game and will get the message that the game is full even when it is empty. This has NEVER happened to me even though I do it very quickly, and I have been playing since the first day the game was released. An empty game will only exist for 5 minutes so if you believe them, don't pause too long. If your computer happens to freeze or somethinfg mid mule, don't panic. Just re-boot and go in asap. I have only lost things twice out of probably thousands of times.
Before you mule, play a little while. If you find that battle net is very laggy, you may run the risk of getting the "realm down" message, where you can't get back on. When it's like that I never mule. If it's hardcore and you have a valuable item you don't want to risk loosing, just play a different character.
