Lots of noob q's These are my boggle: What items should I have imbued by Charsi? I am in Act 3 NM and come across some superior gothic etc, but I don't know what is/are the best things to imbue. Does anyone know if this is bases on clvl (character level?)? Does it matter what difficulty Charsi does this, ie if I give her a superior gothic in normal, and theoretically the same in NM would I have a good chance of getting the same equipment from each imbue-ment (I made up a word!)? Which items should I have socketed? How many sockets can I put on an item? If I can only do one socket to an item, what should be put there? I am using a necro with the skeleton army, so I don't melee. I am thinking topaz for MF, or diamond in my shield. How do I know how good my items are? I see godly, uber, exceptional, rare for cube recipes to upgrade items, but I don't know what items are what. Actually I am pretty sure that my items are sub-normal. (E-bay be nice to me :worship: ...) What is the difference between crushing blow, open wounds, deadly strike and the like? This may be a bit off topic, but I would like a wider perspective. When partying up, what kind of necro's do most people like playing with? I have maxed out skellie and mastery, and am almost at a loss for what to do now. The mage skellies get dead (re-dead) quickly, I am thinking either maxing out iron golem or revive. Last question, what the hell are clans good for? Other than handing down second hand items (kind of like when I had to wear my grandfathers clothes because if they were good enough for him...), I see no benefit.
