[L] best way to get rich

hey, i havnt been on 1.10 for 2 long and im still trying to figure out the best way to get your fortune up. Early on i found some really really good items off meph and that got me started, after that mf cooled down and i started finding what appeared to be normal items at a normal rate, but i cant quite figure out how to convert said normal items into things that can be traded for higher items (namely shako atm.) with the addition of cubing the best option seems to be trade them for lum-pulish runes then cube them up, but is there another way? like would i be able to get a shako for say 10 15-21 runes, or 15, or what?

best way is to sit in trade channel for hours. see what people are buying and what they are offering. compare this to what people are selling and what they are asking for.

somebody sells an item for 4 runes, you buy it because you know you can sell it for 6 runes. that's the best way to build wealth.

you can basically build up wealth through trade alone, although it is harder now without the gems room.

currently, you could probably get started with 1 good hellforge drop.

I think the trade channels end up being a big waste of time. Hrs spent in the trade channel could be used towards mfing instead. Naturally, you may not get anywhere going either route, but the potential for scoring big in X amnt of time is greater mfing IMO.

Some peeps enjoy wheeling and dealing tho over endless mf runs....the key is to do what U enjoy the most. There is no surefire way to become rich quick.

Trading is fun when u have something of value, trying to swindle people bores me to death.

make a game called vef 4 trade and watch the peolple offer you griz armor and andy visage, drives me insane...

trading can be very frustrating. people will usually offer you less than what your item is worth, and you'll end up having to trade down a lot if you want to trade fast. it's all a matter of patience.

oh and btw, make sure u guys organize your mules well. sometimes if someone posts up a great offer and you want to buy, you don't want to end up searching through mules for 20 minutes, especally with the risk of being locked out for changing games/chars/accnts too fast.

I just need to get that very first or 2 high runes. After trades are the way to go...

I managed to get a Sur rune... Trade this one rune in what a call my lucky day: The guy offer: tals armor, shaeffers, good GF, 2 shakos, + some mfscs

Got back 1 high rune for shaeffers
Got back Gul for tals since i throw in some mid-stuff (like the stuff you trade for mid-runes)
Got 1 high rune for GF (by adding some mid items also)
Trade my 2 shakos for 3 allres scs and got back 2 Surs...
____________

Sure as the other one said: you gonna have to wait A LONG time for that except if you enter a lucky day like me and received this as the very first offer in a game... Basicly: I made a Doom eth cryptic axe for my merc with a Sur rune... (Now i dont have anymore good runes, DOH!)

Im trying this now too, but I can't get that first rune or two. NM countess doesn't do well enough, and i can't run anything in hell yet. I've got 2 open Hell hellforge quests on other chars, if there was someway to do those without other people taking my rune :/

all you need to finish the game (untwinked) are:
1 synergized skill
max resists.

I dunno what char you are using, but people have finished with:
fireball + orb
frenzy
meteor + orb
chain lightning + orb
freezing arrow
whirlwind

the first guy i know who finished the game in beta used ral/ort armor/helm. i finished 4 chars so far with the same lore helm, ancient's pledge shield, and smoke armor.

the first couple chars or so is the hardest, until you can build up some pgems/runes. i've gotten some better eq since but i still keep the helm/sheild/armor for new chars.

I started with a Gul drop from hellforge and a storm and gris helm i bought for crapjools, ort runes and pgems.

story of the one GUL
for the gul i got Ist + shako + skullders
I bought a 229ed GF with that Ist
Sold the gf for Ist + Tals armor
sold tals armor for Ist + shako
Got an ist for the 2 shako's.
result : made 3 ist and a skullders for 1 gul (in relatively short time)

I was lucky with the GF, luck is a part of d2 :D

Pray for god to cut you a break. Like today, I went into a game that said ist for maras, which gave me enough 290s along with um and uniques to get enigma. Take advantage of every rich newb that pees himself when he sees plus skills. :buddies:

i finished all my chars (except the pure cl sorc) solo. first solo finish i had was with this crap conc/frenzy barb using a black tyrant club.

you don't have to hit up newbies for good stuff. i gave away an ormus robes for a ko just because i needed one (and i had 2 more.)

Pure trading is a very fast way to build wealth...I started with an io rune, and in the first weekend, i had about the value of a shako and ss...
