None. perming is not proven and many say it is a myth. please review the stickies in newcomer and west trade. we do not support perming or dupes. if you knowingly trade for a dupe i.e. permed item you are on your own.I'm in the process of acquiring a pair of "perm" wraith brand boots.
I was wondering what steps I could go to the 'verify' that the boots where perm. I heard about the 'clash' test. What is this?
Why would you think that they do? Just because they currently have an ID?Why would you think they did not have an ID?
They were assigned unique numbers since the beginning of D2, like RTB said, and as far as I'm concerned there isn't/never was a method of duping in such a way that unique fingerprints are created.If one were to speculate given the current information, then one could surmise that the actual methods used by certain undesireable elements created unique fingerprints for each copy of the item, and since Blizzard uses the unique "fingerprints" to differentiate between legitimate and duplicate, a rust storm would be inneffective on pre-1.09 items duplicates, as there is no way to tell them apart from the original item. Rares would also present a problem, because there is no reason why two rare items cannot drop with the same random name and stats, though the chances are astronimical against it.
I have no idea what clashing is.
