Re: Patriarch GooberIII - Telebombing Zookeeper/Hunter

I recently took my poisonmancer to patriarch and he also used an insight iron golem. I also noticed that the meditation stopped working at some point in act 5, but it was manageable because I was also using a 1.07 MPK ring. (Corpse explosion at level ~43+ takes too much mana for insight alone with my fairly small mana pool and I can't teleport for long with just a MPK ring.)

I just thought it a little odd until you mentioned it here. Seems like there is some sort of consistent bug.
After some forum searching I found what @Pyrohemia said above. I have made an insight iron golem on my skellimancer and am noticing the same thing. The thread this came from did not have a resolution or further discussion on this matter, so I'm posting this to see if anyone else has experienced this "bug". Thoughts?

Thanks @ioupainmax, I hadn't seen though threads before. After reading them the jist is that this is a bug and has happened to others as well. However, it is interesting that it was noticed after claw vipers and not in the Act V tunnels.

Basically it sounds like the only solution is to save and exit. I'll do some more testing to see when I can get it to trigger. I've tried a few things to see if it would re-activate without S&E to no avail (i.e. changing and equipping gear).

Wait a minute, you're saying there's bugs in D2? Who knew!?

(actually this one is new for me)

I had not been able to play at all, it was my daughter's birthday, my nephew's HS graduation, and father's day, plus relatives were in from California. D2 is on the back burner for a bit until RL calms down :)

It was rather weird reading a quote of myself from 5.5 years ago.

"Pyrohemia said" ... "Is that me? Is that the right Pyro? Did I write this?" ... "Ah, now I recall writing that, but I don't recall the events I was writing about."

Well, I just did an experiment and went to the caverns before Frozenstien. Ran through that without the meditation disappearing, so I continued on. clearing Frozenstien, Shenk, the other guy, Baal, cleared AT and the pits. Meditation stayed throughout. Usually its a while before I notice its missing, so I'll have to keep experimenting. Not sure what kicks it off at this point.

Did you switch acts to try and get the aura back?

Were you in nightmare or hell where claw vipers could have been a guest monster in the Act V tunnels?

Just my first two thoughts that popped into my head, probably not useful so good luck!

What I remember when it happened last I tried a bunch of different things, including switching acts. This was on Hell difficulty for sure. I will be continuing on with this to see if I can figure out the trigger.
