    Most over- and underrated things in Diablo?

    Simple question:

    What do you think are the most over- and underrated things in Diablo? They can be items, skills, characters, guides.. anything. :bow:

    Most underrated: Crescent Moon runeword. Really rocks for a2-mercs because of its static field, and because of not being as expensive as other runewords (shael+um+tir is reasonable)

    Most overrated: sojs... (many casters wont need the manaboost anyway, especially not sorcs who can use warmth. bk-rings that gives +life are never wrong.

    Underrated is definitely Warmth. Ormus wouldn't need to sell blues if all the mf sorcs just used warmth..

    Overrated is probably.. err... Enigma. Definitely. Lets all go back to imbuing Ornate armors. I'll take a 829 defense ornate over a 'Nigma anyday. Give me a 6 pdiamond tower shield with that.

    Underrated: IK barbs for PvM. I keep meeting people who way :" lol he's using IK, what a nOOb".example: My concentration IK barb survived the way down to Baal, a GF/SS wwbarb dies. everybody else: "lol, IK barb survived and you didnt, you must suck"... Could it perhaps be that an IK barb ROCKS for PvM ??

    Overrated: Mara's. Eeeeeverybody wants one for his hammerdin, I even saw someone using a +20% Mara while he had a crafted +2pala +10fcr with more res and stats in the stash... Sure, it's a very good amu, but it's not like it's THE amu for any caster.

    underrated: classic unique belts/gloves

    overrated: sorc's cold mastery.

    sidenote: everything said about sorcs not needing mana is flat wrong. sure, warmth is great, but it only acts upon the mana you have. if you don't have any mana, then it won't regen any. especially with the introduction of synergies, there are less skill points to go around to utility skills, so warmth will only get one skill point in most cases. more is like having a barb max natural res.

    underrated : lion heart runeword, perfect armor for strafezon and very cheap

    overrated : soj, only reason why ity is more expensive than a bul ring is because of its rarity i guess, and that's the ridiculous part :)

    Underrated: Low lvl runewords (leaf and Stealth are amazing for what they cost), and certain low lvl sets/uniques (sanders comes to mind here. )


    Overrated: ...new runewords (botd, cta, and Enigma mainly. hell they are great but i mean DAMN everyone has them now.)

    Underrated: PvM. Sure, once you've got a great char you might want to duel, but without a pure PvM char you will not get anything.

    Overrated: Godly items. You heard me. They are great, of course, but every time I try to find a strategy guide here there's a list of all the amazingly rare Elite Uniques and Runewords needed to make the strategy work, when the odds of me ever getting more than one of those items is exactly zero. How about telling new players how they can succeed without being fabulously wealthy?
