    ... Of playing this damn game, I have never once noticed that the Staff of Kings and Chromatic Ire share the EXACT same graphic.

    And now he picks them up because he is 20 years older and he needs one I guess.

    I haven't found half of these in regular play probably a handful of times over my career.

    Yes, career.

    Now that's funny!

    You have become a perfect candidate for Ondal's Wisdom :D

    The last staff I've picked up was this one. Apart from that, I'm picking up unique staves which I believe to be Ribcrackers... I can't always remember that it has to be a quarterstaff.

    When I'm in the right mood, I'm picking up white staves, hoping for a good Leaf base, even though I would probably never start an enchantress with a two-hander.

    Why aren't some of the Ribcrackers you pick up already upped? I mean, if some unknown hero dies and drops a Ribcracker quarterstaff for you to later pick up from a dead monster ... why are they never, ever upped Ribcrackers.

    Same goes for any normal or exceptional melee weapon - you never find them already upped. Why?

    It's just plain wrong. I shall continue to not play D2 (until I once again get the urge to play it but I'll still not know "why")

    Because you need the horadric cube to do so?

    Perhaps the exceptional and elite uniques and rares started as normal items and were upgraded that way. The normal ones that still exist might have been made after the cube was lost. Perhaps that's the case with any exceptional and elite item and we just don't know the recipes for that or the ingredients aren't available anymore.

    ... And now I just noticed for the first time that if you kill mobs in Act II, the Scorpions on the ground travel over to feast on their corpses!

    "Horazon's urinal?"

    I found that one around year 15 or so, and have wondered what other funny quips I've missed.

    The drunkard Geglash has some pretty funny dialogue as well. Haven't played with sound in ages, but when i did, i listened to nearly all of the dialogue. Mostly i miss the music, luckily the soundtrack is on Spotify.

    "The way I see it... Well, it's all pretty blurry."

    I absolutely did, lol. Fell for that one hard, blinded by the possibility of that unique charm sitting in my inventory. To this day I wish Blizzard would find a way for us SP'ers to legitimately get those two.

    Meh, my AT sorc would benefit more from 14% extra MF instead of packing a torch.

    Jokes aside, the clone event with its current mechanics is practically impossible, but uber Tristram could have been nicely moved over to SP. I remember back when I was a noob and one of the keys dropped for the first time.. the excitement quickly turned into disappointment.

    I guess I owe a contribution to the thread now. Did you know that Cain will ID all of the items you currently have in your horadric cube, even if it's stashed away? :) No idea for how long it has been so though.
