HI, I'm Italian so my english couldn't be good, but I've got a question for you. I got a barb lvl 78 and I just finished nightmare difficulty. I'm tring to face hell level but it's so damn difficult. I think it's because my resistences and objects but I can't find them better than this ones. I'm farming again nightmare lvl tring to find something. My question is... Can I find something better playing nightmare level or I have to do hell lvl? Lvl objects are higher in hell mode or I can find higher lvl objects also in nightmare lvl? thanks and sorry for my english

I can show you my self found Barb:


I use the runeword mod. Install the game in English, it will be easier for you to learn and discuss the game with us :)

I got lucky and got Arreats face from Nightmare Baal Quest drop. I used Rockstopper before that.

I got the gear basically by doing like 500 Nightmare mephisto runs with a good map (reroll it if you have to) and got lucky to get a Pul at nightmare Hellforge so I could upgrade the sword Headstriker.

I got your own rings and amulet. But not the pul rune. I've to find it in hellforge.
You get only one chance per difficulty level to get a rune from hellforge.

Best is to level up to a bit more doing baal runs in nightmare and proceed to do countess runs in hell to get a pul. But you only need the pul for upgrading weapons.

It is very difficult to help your barb since I have no idea what stuff you have :)

Unbelievable, i just find the rockstopper. I got to tks you for the support. the video hlps me a lot to understand some things.
Now I have to ask you 2 more things. The first one is if is it possible to skip refletcing damage from some enemies. It's very annoying and dangerous. The second one is if is it possible to play on line, I'm using the D2SE mod.

do you play an older patch than 1.13? And you are asking about how to avoid the Iron Maiden curse?

plaing 1.14 version. I'm not sure if it calls like this. But there are some little enemies (for example in the second level before the mephisto level) that any time I hit them I lose health. Or some magician in the hellforce (in the chatedral before Diablo) that use a course. When they use that one on me I cannot hit no one without dying.

Put 1 skill point into Berserk, and use it against those magicians. Do NOT attack with any other skill when they curse you.

You will not be as strong fighting with Berserk, so be careful. But, you will not get the reflecting damage this way.

These are Stygian Dolls as @drmalawi said. They explode when they die. That is why damage is so high. It does not matter what skill you use to attack. When they explode, you take a lot of damage. But, your Mercenary (the guy that fights with you) does not get hurt from them. Easy thing to do, is back away and let him fight those little guys. I recommend a (offensive) Mercenary in Lut Gholein on Nightmare difficulty.

It's pretty easy to change the language to English. That will help a lot when discussing things in international forums.

In the Diablo folder, make a directory "data". In that directory, make another directory "local". In there, make a file "use" (with no extension in its name), containing the letter 0 (zero). That's it!
