Just traded for this ammy...

Hello everyone. Wow I haven't been on the D2 boards in awhile. Anyway, just wanted some opinions on this:

Shadow Knuckle
lvl 26
+2 pal
15 fr/w
20 str
19 vit
55 life
58 mana

Thoughts. I have a hammerdin so this ammy will replace my traded Mara's.

For future reference, getting +2 to all paladin skills is not a lvl 26 requirment, it's more like a level 62 requirment (or 67, something like that).

So that right there is a dead giveaway...

Yea it's a nice ammy, but know that not only is it duped, but it is also a hacked item...

I'm pretty sure that it's not hacked, just an extremely old item (pre 1.08). Back then items had different level requirements. I remember the trick to getting dual leech rings back then was to gamble with a level 4 character...take a look at any of the classic duped dual leech rings for further evidence.

Naw I'm 99% sure its a recent hack. I played since .08 and never have I seen this ammulet.

Also just go check out the diablo store sites, they sell a ton of these types of hacked ammys (they sell this particular one as well). Like a druid ammy with +2 druid but a lvl 11 requirment, I mean gimme a break...

To say that this ammulet was stashed away on someones active account for 4 years then suddenly given away to a duper is a bit hard to belive. Then we should see old crafted caster rings with +2 necro (which did exist, but noone has a single one now).

Also I'm not too sure that 15% frw can spawn with those uber high stats. And it's a rare ammy not crafted correct?

Chances are, the amulet was duped literally 3 years ago. To further reinforce the idea that level requirements were different back then, take my classic duped dual leech ring, Raven Spiral.

Level Req: 14
148 attack rating
7 mana leech
6 life leech
+13 dex
+15 all resists
+1 mana after kill

To show that +2 skills can be under level 67, search 'sunder' on Ebay. That is an example of a classic amulet that has godly mods but is only level 45 req.

It never occur to you that 15% R/W is not a pre LOD mod on ammy ?

That ammy is so duped and hacked.

I still have rings and ammy dating back from classic and I am 99.5 % sure that + 2 ammy were not available at level 26. If I remember correctly, + 1 skill ammy use to be possible at level 22. I am not sure what was the level for a + 2 ammy but I am positive it was not level 26.

A couple of pointers to prove that this is a hacked item:

1.+2 amulets always had lvl req of 67 even in 1.00
2.The mod with fr/w could never spawn on a rare amulet neither in 1.00 nor in 1.08.Only amulets that receive this mod are blood crafted amulets.
3.+vitality mod can't spawn on an amulet either be it crafted,rare or magical.

it is true that there were at one point rings with +skills. i saw one back in the day with +7 or some ridiculous amount of paladin skills. However, saying that the fact one doesnt see any of these rings does in no way indicate that this amulet is not legit. those rings were rare even during the short time they were makeable, and the recipes for making them had items that, for people just transferring to the expansion pack, were quite rare, as rare as a legit 08 unique. that having been said, it is clear that this amulet is hacked. Even in classic, +2 skill amulets had a required level of 67. Viper torc, a duped pally amulet which is most undeniably classic for its old style prismatic mod, has +2 skills and lvl 67 requirement. also, raven spiral has a required level of 46, not 14. While i dont know for sure that the "sunder" amulet on ebay isn't a hack, i would be willing to wager it is, as it also has the interesting +r/w. I also don't recall seeing this in classic.

As far as i can remember all the way back to 1.03 when i started playing ANY +2 to all class skills ammy has a level requirement of at least 67, whether it is magical or rare or in LOD crafted.

I played some 1.00 back in the day and +2 amulets were level 67 req even then.

Can anyone tell some more about the skill rings that were possible for a while.

Actually, back in 1.07-1,08 lod it was possible to get up to +2 on a crafted ring.

on pre-lod, meaning d2c 1.00 to 1.07

+1 skill had a minimum of lvl 22 req. I still have a few of those even today
+2 skills on amulets had lvl 67 reqs , it was available on other items at lvl 30

I to have played from 1.04 and this could be either type of Dupe, a pure hack that was duped or a bugged dup only the guy who first duped it knows, back then you could get lagged drops with all kinds of messed up mod's and level requirements that droped in lagged games and then if they were any good they got dupped like crazy after the duping hacks came out. The raven spiral, Havoc spiral and Plauge master rare rings are all examples of legit bugged drops that were later duped not to mention the bugged SOJ's with the negitave stats that people used for the skills bug (which again was not a hack but a bug in the game code) some of these items still exist (I have raven spirals and plauge masters, chaos ammys etc on my old chars still even though the patch removed my legit 1.08 B-stars and Areats) but really I just play those guys enough to keep them alive and I only play ladder now. If items like that bug you PLAY LADDER! Thats where everyone who had the skill and wanted a challenge went anyway.
