More newcomer enquiries Heya guys, I want to thank everyone on this board for having been patient and helpful with my D2 enquiries in the past week. This is indeed the first character that I have played to Hell mode and I am having a blast with my frenzy barbarian in my first battle.net experience. There's a lot of things that I still would like to know, however, and have come to you all once again for help. Some general questions about some parts of the game that are still a little puzzing to me. 1. The Charsi imbue quest. I haven't actually got any items imbued by Charsi yet, even if I am in hell level at the moment, with all 3 imbues up for grabs, I just don't know what I could bring there that would make a worthwhile item. Does anyone have any idea what would give the best outcome? Or is the reward for the quest redundant now with the gear I am getting in Hell?(haven't finished yet, and having played untwinked, my gear is not that super to be honest - ok garbage, but I am working my way up!). 2. The Act 5 socketing. Same as the Charsi quest, does anyone recommend what would be most worthwhile to add some sockets to. In my opinion this seems like a very powerful reward and I am scared to socket something that I would upgrade in the near future, especially when I could hang out for a decent item to drop and socket something I am much less likely to replace. 3. Recommended rune/words to look out for. Does anyone have any intermediate level runeword recommendations? I am not at a stage yet where high end runes are dropping, but if I can start looking out for runes that would make some words advantageous for my class, I would be most appreciative. There are so many, and I am not sure which ones would serve me best in the long run. 4. Barbarian Weapon Masteries. At the moment I am working on maxing BO and my barbarian will be a iron/frenzy type, with the only thing left to work on would be to max out a weapon mastery, or a frenzy synergy. I have put some points into sword mastery at the moment, and I wonder what would be better: focus my remaining points on maxing mastery, or going for a frenzy synergy. 5. Weapon socket. At the moment I am using an Aldur's mace, and its far superior to any weapon I have come across so far. I notice that it has 3 sockets, and I wonder what could be the best runes/gems/jewels I could put in there. I realise the set is one that best suits druids, and perhaps one day I will be upgrading it, especially since I have mastered swords already and would probably be better off with a decent slasher down the line. Thanks very much for reading this far, and any help you can give. See you all online!
