Lack of game Knowledge, yet Stinking Rich? Ok, I diden't want to post a reply to this guys post in the newcomer forum because it is a newcomer question and it is in the right forum, and we were all newcomers once etc. etc. but here was his question When I read this question, it got me thinking. Obviously this guy is very, very new to the game. No problem, welcome to this great game! but how exactly does someone who is obviously just starting to play have access to a GA and the runes for an enigma? GA, is a little more understandable, although I know I diden't have one for a while, and of course I'm sure some people will just say 'ebayer' but if the guys never played the game, or is just trying it out to see if he likes it why would he go and start buying all this high end stuff on ebay? Just to clarify, kingcu, if you read this I'm not picking on you or anything, I mean 'can you make runewords out of rares/uniques?' is a very valid newcomer question, I've seen a lot of people ask it. The thing I found wierd was just the way the question was worded was as if you had this stuff already, when just starting out. So I guess my question to the community would be, How common is this situation? Where someone just starts out the game and becomes filthy rich? How exactly do they manage it? Shoulden't it be more important to PLAY the game a bit, get to know the in's and out's of it before you start thinking about the highest end runes/runewords/items in the game? I guess the other thing is Maybe this guy is just playing single player and using some downloaded characters to try things out, in that case I guess I can kinda understand wanting to try playing with some of the higher end stuff to basically see what you like and which type of items you'd like to shoot for when starting from scratch. ok, well I've been blabbering .. Later..
