    Just cube a godly small charm

    Heard hell baal give the highest charms for cubing , was managed to snatch a small charm earlier from baal public runs.

    Immediately try to burn all my pgems into it... guess what ...after almost close to 50pgems ++ wasted.. i got a ........

    small charm of 330 poison dmg in 10 sec.

    wohoo... not sure how rare this cubing is.. but i was happy, just wana share my joy :)

    i would say it is pretty rare, but if i recall correctly, you can get up to 450 psn damage on a small charm or there abouts. it is a pestilent small charm of pestilence that gives such damage i think. still a very nice cube, congrats man.

    that was due to a display bug that was fixed in 1.10 -- highest listed pd on a sc is now 451 (it was always 451, just listed at 383).

    Hi all,

    Nice charm mate!

    With regards to the highest level Eq, I would have thought you would have done well with any charms found in the best MF areas such as the Pits (see the Pits guide below, if the url gets old, try searching on http://strategy.diabloii.net for "pits")

    http://strategy.diabloii.net/news.php?id=532

    I play single player and use Atma to stash my items - this shows the Ilvl of the items. I keep every charm I find in there, so I can reroll etc, and I've just checked and most of them are Ilvl 85+ becuase I grabbed them in the pits. The mods on them at present are rubbish, but the Ilvl is what counts for the reroll I believe?

    Plus it's easier to grab them from there than try to grab from a public boss drop I guess?

    - Final -

    Arreat summit says
    PREFIXES
    Septic +15 Poison Damage Over 3 Seconds Small Charms(18)
    Foul +50 Poison Damage Over 4 Seconds Small Charms(39)
    Toxic +100 Poison Damage Over 5 Seconds Small Charms(63)
    Pestilent +175 Poison Damage Over 6 Seconds Small Charms(**)

    SUFFIXES
    Blight +6 Poison Damage Over 3 Seconds Small Charms(9)
    Venom +15 Poison Damage Over 4 Seconds Small Charms(20)
    Pestilence +25 Poison Damage Over 5 Seconds Small Charms(32)
    Anthrax +50 Poison Damage Over 6 Seconds


    Suppose they are wrong? I don't understand poison, but I think it's because the suffixes have shorter times, so it makes the pestilent show up as high damage over a longer time.

    nihlithak has a TC of 97, baal's is 99. so both are good, technically baal is best.


    the pits have monsters lvl 85-87 or thereabouts. as I stated earlier, baals is 99, which is a much better lvl for cubing.

    Yep, you know what, you're right! :worship:

    My MF necro is making slow progress through act2 hell at the moment, I haven't got through to Baal yet. Maybe I'll mule off all my MF stuff for a bit and load up on +skills to get me there in good time.

    When the charm has a poison prefix and suffix the duration is added. Therefore you can work it out like this.

    Prefix Pestilent : 175 over 6 Seconds = 175/6 = 29.16666 Dam / Sec
    Venom : 15 over 4 sec = 3.75 Dam / Sec

    29.16666 +3.75 = 32.9176 Damage Per Sec

    Times 10 Seconds = 329.176 (rounded up to 330)

    (Some margin of error here because the pestilent one is actually 29.166666666 recurring.

    Pestilent Charm of Anthrax =

    175 over 6 Seconds = 175/6 = 29.16666 Dam / Sec
    50 over 6 = 8.33333333 Dam / Sec
    = 37.49 Dam / Sec

    6 Sec + 6 Sec = 12 Sec * 37.49 = 450 Over 12 Secs. (That right?)

    Thats how I see it anyway.

    Just a quick question that despite my best efforts I have been unable to find regarding this topic. When you are cubing these charms can you continually cube charms over and over again ? (and this works on Nl as well correct?)

    Sorry for the basic questions but i have just started playign again and have been unable to find the answers :scratch:

    Yes thats what people do. Cube charms again and again till they get something good (or more often in my case run out of gems!)

    Close. The maximum poison duration on any item is 10.2 seconds, or 255 frames.

    Pestilent does 299 bite dmg per frame for 150 frames.
    of Anthrax does 86 bite dmg per frame for 150 frames.

    Together they do 385 bite dmg per frame for 255 frames.
    385 * 255 = 98175 total dmg

    256 bite dmg = 1 poison dmg
    98175 / 256 = 383.496 poison dmg over 10.2 seconds.

    The game rounds it down to 383 over 10 seconds, but internally it still uses the bite dmg per frame.

    Poison dmg is displayed hopelessly inaccurate in d2 :)

    if the charm is dropped by high lvl monster, just keep on reroll till u get satisfactory result, lol

    As for my case, i do reroll few nice sc from first few attempts...
    eg: +3 fasterrun/63 light dmg sc
    20 life sc
    15life /8 fire resist etc...

    the rest cant remember...

    In the end, get lucky with a 330pdsc :)
