    I heard that Assassins can open locked chests without a key.

    Is that true? And if it is, is it for Assassins only?

    And are there any other class abilities that other classes can't do?

    Yes, assassins can open locked chests without keys but they go through a long uninterruptable process of wooing the locked chest.........................



    ...kidding; first part is true though, saving a valuable 1 space for a small charm of pwnage mode. there are no other classes hidden abilities. Sorceresses can pick up gold, pots, and access wps and stash via telekinesis though. only assassins can open locked chests without keys

    I admit that I never, ever used telekinesis for anything. Switching to the skill or even just assigning a key to it and not to forget, getting used to it always appeared as too much of a waste of time.

    I use TK now and then, mostly for hitting Wells (that are in a spot I´d rather not go because that will bring out more monsters) to save my merc, or to help my merc overcome a particularly nasty boss (spam TK on the boss).

    With underpowered Sorcs, I´ve used it to open doors from a distance in the Act II underground areas (to lure out as few monsters as possible, at the start of an area when I try to establish some secured space).

    (It´s not like a Sorceress has that many hotkeys occupied, not compared to Barbarian, Druid, Assassin or Necromancer. The last two are the only ones where I´ve run out of the 16 hotkeys...)

    TK is not sorc specific, though, as you can find it as charges.


    Barbarian´s ability to dual wield weapons, and to use 2h swords one-handed fits in here, I think.

    I use TK to enter Duriels lair sometimes,often simple clicking on the entrance does nothing.

    I don't want to open up a new thread just for a question, so I'll ask here anyway. Wouldn't Telekinesis be good for getting those dropped items as fast as possible? I mean I've seen people clicking so fast I can hardly see if an item was dropped, let alone what it is.

    It really bugs me how some people can pick up items that fast.

    Some are cheating with a hack that allows them to pick stuff up insanely fast...

    Isn't there anything that can be done?

    Sadly it's a 10+ year old game, when you fix one problem they find another way to get in....

    TK isn't allowed to pick up "real" items as it would offer sorcs an unfair advantage at picking up dropped items, - that's why it works for wells, gold, potions, seals, scrolls, and arrows/bolts.

    Best way to insure you keep your drops is to hunt solo.

    Wouldn't that mean the drop quality/frequency will be lowered severely?

    Having TK has no influence on drops. Opening chests with TK will produce the usual results on the ground. You just cannot pick up anything but junk with it.

    Perhap, but by joining a game with someone whoclicks after items before anything else (or uses a hack) only improves the items they get since you don't get any.

    Even if no one you play with uses hacks, you will still get more items over time by hunting solo if you aren't sharing (or outright giving up) drops with others. Each drop has fewer items (not lower quality items, just fewer) but you get the whole drop.

    Ideally, you can hunt solo in a full game where others are off doing something else.

    you can also use TK if you have a one element only sorcerres to lock down monsters (into a wall for example) that are immune to your element, so that your merc can kill the monster safely... in other words it is quite usefull!
