    My First Pat - Horus

    I've been playing D2 since 1.08...

    And had never finished the game with any character until yesterday.

    Horus defeated Hell Baal last night at level 86 with the help of NSX dreamer and a few others. (which is amusing since his Necro was named Osiris...musta been a good day to be named after an Egyptian god!).

    Horus - lvl 86 Tesladin.

    Strength 150
    Dexterity 154
    Vitality 206
    Energy 15
    Life
    Mana

    Zeal 19
    Holy Shield 10
    Holy Shock 20 (24)
    Resist Lightning 20 (22)
    Salvation 20 (22)

    Helm - Rockstopper 44/26/35
    Armor - Griswold's Heart
    +Ort
    +15% Increased Attack Speed/+7% dmg Jewel
    +Rare Jewel - 33% dmg vs Demons
    - +41 AR vs Demons
    - Attacker takes dmg of 5
    Amulet - Marshal's Amulet of Perfection +3 Off Aurus/+20 dex
    Weapon - Lightsabre w/Shael
    Sheild - Rhyme Crown Shield (25 resist all)
    Gloves - LoH
    Boots - Tearhaunch
    Belt - Blood Crafted - 12 Str, 24 life, 2% LL, 8% OW, 12% Cast lvl 4 Nova
    Ring - Ravenfrost
    Ring - Rare - 75 mana, dmg red 1, Lres 21, Pres 28, 5%LL, PL reduced by 25%

    I often grew frustrated trying to Pat this guy, and the reason became blatantly obvious last night...

    NSXDreamer and I were going through the Bloody Foothills, and one of the mosters spawned with Bone Warriors, which even though not LI took FOREVER to kill for some reason. It would take the Necro a whole mana bulb to kill a pack...

    NSXDreamer inquired if it was set to Players 8, to which I replied "Of course not, you think I'm nuts?"

    We continued struggling for a bit longer, when NSX asked me if I'd played any other characters today, to which I responded "Of course, a few actually...I usually play 2 or 3 different characters a day". He then asked if I had used the Players 8 command while playing them. To which I responded "Of course, most aren't in Hell"....

    At this point he informed me that if you don't CLOSE D2, the player setting never resets...

    I had been playing all of Hell on Players 8 almost up to the Arreat Summit (which is when we clued in) for weeks, because I never shut off my computer...and rarely restart D2 (since I play it daily).

    So let this be a lesson to the other poor ignorant savages like me, the Players setting doesn't reset between games!

    Well, the end of this post is long overdue....Just like my first Pat was!

    Congrats and well done :thumbsup:

    I too have never got to your level (am currently slowly making my way through Act 2 NM), so I can understand your excitement. Again congrats.

    Grats on the Pat.

    The /player command is one of the things we all forget sometimes . . .

    I did /players 64 Cow runs in good ol 1.09b and forgot too turn it down when i was going for the Ancients with another char. Damn Ancients took me forever too kill . . . :rant:

    Congratulations, Mammon, on your Patriarch. The first one is always an achievement.

    While D2 retaining the players setting can be quite annoying for changing characters, it is good for two things - doing MF runs (where you want to keep on at the same players setting) and for keeping Iron Golems at the same players setting as they were cast (as the players setting used to determine the Golem's hitpoints is determined when the Golem is cast, and for Iron Golems that are kept between games, this defaults to the starting setting, which would otherwise be players 1 if you started the game).

    I thought they fixed that bug where summons are treated as monster and get additional hp, or was the iron golem thing a feature?
