    Welcome to the SPF.

    /kicks shins

    Everyone loves these, so here: Blova Guide by Liquid Circus

    May your drops be green and gold.

    Also, Dumaguete sounds pretty cool. Is it real? I'll check google later.

    Hey, a Dumagueteño in the SPF. That was completely ripped off from Wikipedia, unfortunately.

    Welcome to the forum and second the recommendation of a Blova.

    I giggled for about 30 seconds. :(

    Also, third recommendation for a Blova.

    Re: Need advice on my sorceress

    Thanks dude! Dumaguete btw is in the Philippines. If I can still remember, I started playing Diablo II original when I was 11 o 12, im 21 right now...
    I just don't know what items to be bought and wear... The funny thing before is that I choose armors with high def rather than its stats... i don't care if it has 40 to all resists, all i care is def... I've been reading this forum a month ago i just decided to join and interact with Diablo II elite players...

    Just wanna ask, why Ice Blast and not Glacial Spike since Glacial Spike is an AoE skill. and just 1 point on CM

    See Section V of the guide.

    I copied/pasted/spoilered it below.


    In Diablo 2, defence does almost nothing for you unfortunately. You should start donning the +40 Resistance armors and throwing away the high defence armors.

    Again from the guide:


    You already have Blizzard/Nova for AoE.


    Not necessarily 1 point, they suggest 1 point only if you have enough +Skills on your gear to boost it to level 22. You can just put more if you feel like it.

    It seems to be pretty hard to design a game like Diablo where defense is really useful. It's the same (maybe moreso) in Angband, from which Diablo is pretty directly descended- armor is for the side effects, not the defense.

    Glacial Spike is great for crowd control as the freeze effect is AoE as well as damage. Ice Blast does more damage, but only freezes a single target. It's all about playstyle, use whatever suits you best!
