    It pays to kick barrels

    So I'm still on my first character in Hell Act I, and clearing the Crypt after killing Bloodraven. Kick over a barrel, and low and behold I get this:

    Mara's Kaleidoscope
    Amulet
    Required Level: 67
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 83
    Fingerprint: 0xb10d1843
    +5 to Strength
    +5 to Energy
    +5 to Dexterity
    +5 to Vitality
    All Resistances +30
    +2 to All Skill Levels

    Not all that rare and only and exceptional Unique, but I was very pleased. Glad I always do full clears!

    wow great find. Usually I just skip barrels because they just hurt me everytime, but now I might reconsider.

    I hope you bought a lottery ticket today too, because the odds are probably pretty close. I am an obsessive/compulsive barrel kicker, although it has not paid off with anything close to what you found. Nice kicking, keep it up. :thumbsup:

    Nice find! I usually kick barrels and open chests. It's usually cash or bolts or arrows. Usually not much more than that.

    Don't get too excited, it probably won't happen again!

    Possibly, I need to think on it for a bit first though. Get back to me with what you might want to offer a dual sword wielding melee Barb...the phase blade you are using is possible since you are thinking of replacing it anyway. I might have other weapons you might use. Gotta think on it though.

    I blame you for me still not knowing what to consider a truly great find! However, by only exceptional, I meant that it is not an elite unique!

    Now, I just rescued Cain, so its time for some :drink: .

    The way it sounds, there is no way I should even consider trading it. I have a feeling I would get the short end on any deal. I don't read up on all the stats, etc to know what is good and what isn't, for which I also blame Durf.

    well you got the worst mara's that can drop i believe but its still pretty good. i also believe its one of the amulets you consider using in your end-build depending on the other equipment. I've been playing since 2 days before diablo 2 classic was released in stores but only just re-introducted to trading so i can't tell you its actual trade value (as that can vary rather wildly from the stats) but i'm sure someone here could give an honest opinion as to what you should expect for such an item... provided of course you don't want to use it yourself.

    i had bad grammar in that last paragraph, and also some light rambling... durf!!!!! why do you plague us all

    That's a sweet drop. The best thing I've ever gotten was a Stone Crusher from one of the containers near Threshsocket.

    It is not the worst Mara's, it is perfect. Unlike the 5 Mara's I have found (23%,22% and 3x 20% which is worst possible :lol: )

    It is very good for many builds, excellent end-game ammy, congrats on finding it :drink:

    Spiked Club just dropped out of a Barrel...first unique in a HC tourney!

    I think everyone should give Durf a big hand for making me kick barrels!
