Latest thoughts on faster playing In my experience muling slows down finding by much. So to cut down muling I have decided on the following: - no blue items pick up - no rares pick up - no set or unique pick up unless for the grail - no gems pick up unless rubbies and amethists - no runes pick up - el-nef, shael-lum - no gold pick up besides the what is required for merc ressurecting - no items for sale taken to town - no socketables pick up unless the 7-8 right bases for the runewords you want to make - no keep of charms, unless: 7%mf, sharp, shimmering, fast run, vita or +skill As soon as you get a decent runeword for a weapon, no rares or blues can compare. As soon as you have Highlords, Goreriders, CoA, Gryphon eye, Fortitude, Dracul, LoH and such, rares or blues are downgrade. From crafting you only need 1 Blood ring and 1 +skill resists caster amulet. As soon as you craft these - no gems at all and no runes below Ko. I know that if you keep picking up gems, low end runes and low end charms has some benefits, but the time required is too much and it slows down your high end rune and uniques finds. At the end of the day your char will be weaker.
