I do a good deed, and this is the thanks I get So I finally found a nice Zak Shield with 43 res , get 4 sockets out of it and to thru the long ordeal of gettin all the necessary runes for a spirit (and god forbid anyone should want to trade a tal, thul, ort or amn). I had to do the act5 soldiers quest to get all the runes and slowly cube them up to the necessary ones. Then all I needed was one lousy chipped topaz to make an amn out of 3 thuls, so for 2 hours of wandering around norm I couldnt get one. Till some low level comes in and asks for a rush. I tell him if he gives me a chip topaz he can have it for free. Of course he jumps on that and I go thru with the rush and to top if all off I end up dumping some 15 or so rares and uniques off of all my mules that were just gathering dust. All the while this kid was amazed at how good they were, even tho they were mediocre stuff. So after all that I go ahead and make my spirit, and this is what I get: http://img230.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screenshot011ed9.jpg :sad2: :sad2: :sad2: At least some kid is now happily swimming in uniques all for a chip gem.
