    Little story for the faint of heart

    Well, as we all know the D2 gods can be very frustrating at times. I have started several characters over the past couple of weeks and usually got to an excited state when I reached the Hell Forge. However, after my first ladder Hell Forge of Gul I must have done something to anger the gods of D2. For they turned their will of luck against me and I proceeded to obtain numerous Lums and Lems from my various Hell Forges.

    However after character after character of disappointment I chanced upon a +3 skill Grand Matron Bow. As my luck would have it, it was unsocketed. Talk about kissing your sister. Well, I thought what do I have to lose. I only have a 1 in 6 chance of rolling 4 sockets, but if I do I can make that faith bow for my strafer that I've been wanting. So as I mule the amethyst ral and amn I can't help but thinking that I will have to create a hell game so I can get the most gold for the bow when I sell it to Charsi.

    Seeing as my luck has been less than good lately, I nonchalantly slap the transmuting ingredients into the cube. A right click brings me into the final stage before I depress the transmute button. I think "what the hell, why not" and transmute. I take a short breath before I mouse over the newly transmutted bow to see the results. slowly my cursor moves up and to the left. As I mouse over the bow the stat window pops up.

    +3 to bow and crossbow skills (amazon only)
    socketed (4)


    AAAAAHHHHHHH. What Luck! well now its back to 2-3 months of 1 tp drops from meph and lum-lem Hell forge drops. Anyway, just wanted to share the highpoint of my day with all of you. Hope your luck is as good as mine today.

    lol nice story, i got 2 of those bows that im too scared / dont have the runes to do the socket recipie to. I really should just do it, but ur right, i should do it in hell for when it ends up with 1-2 sockets so i can sell it for gold lol

    OMG, we have like the same good/bad luck. Ive been getting the worst drops from Hell forge for the longest time now. Can you believe 5 HELs in a row? geez. So I find the +3 GMB in cows, cube it and get 4 sockets. YES. Made a quick trade for a JAH (had the OHM) and I got a 15/3/2 Faith. Perfect. Its on my best zon ever.

WOW... meh lol j/k... i was about to leave the game... when this fallen came over to hit me... i killed him and he dropped a rare orb which i went over to pick up... then i saw... this plain GMB on the floor... picked it up and i saw:

    Required Dexterity: 152
