Oldbie/Newbie Q's Hi all. Was rummaging through some moving boxes from 2001 and lo and behold, my Diablo II (non-expansion) box appeared before my eyes! Been tooling around in both single-player and Bnet for a couple months. My (awesome) GF, out of the blue and after seeing me enjoying the game, bought me the Battleset. :thumbup: My main chars are a Pally and a Necro, been playing with an Assassin a bit and just rolled up a Sorc today. At any rate, I have a few questions, it's kind of a laundry list. I searched here and the wiki and didn't find some of the answers; no doubt my search-fu is weak. Any and all answers/advice are greatly appreciated! :yes: 1. Do gemmed MF helms and armor work with mercs? Do they have to make the kill or does it just all add up together, say if you're playing solo with a merc? 2. Are there still active guilds/clans around? Are there any links to a list of them or something? 3. Do Necro curses stack? Or does casting a new one eliminate the old one? I thought I read somewhere about how Attract could not be overridden and wondered if there were other curses like that. 4. Is there any defense vs. the Unraveller dark antimatter tarballs or is an end-around of their minions basically your only option if you're playing a melee-type character? 5. Crafted/runeword items. Seems I read somewhere that they had to be magical items and read somewhere else they needed to be grey-titled items? 6. Finally, are there any Excel sheets out there that show skill progressions, boss monster info, item info and all that kind of stuff? These 40-something eyes can't readily make out some of the info in the strategy guide that came with the battlepack. Any links would be helpful! Again, thanks for your time and any and all advice/help!
