Real newb with newb question!

I have been playing this game for 7 days max. I have been surfing this site
and seen ALOT of shortenings/abbreviation . One example was one thing I saw
just a few minutes ago.

I saw this shortening: PG

I have no idea what that mean and googling "Diablo 2 +pg" didnt reveal what it
was, neither did the Wiki here.

So anyone here that can tell me some "need-to-know" shortenings and tell what
they stand for.

Best regards!

Re: Real newb with newb question!

for normal gems, act 4-5 normal
flawless gems go to act 3+ nm

just keep cubing them up, 3 of the same gems in the cube produce 1 gem of the next grade
(chip-flawed-normal-flawless-perfect)

Re: Real newb with newb question!

There is also no reason to pick-up lower grade gems after you advanced further in the game. As soon as flawless gems start to drop, dump all lower ones you can't cube and pick up only flawless gems. They are quite common later...

Re: Real newb with newb question!

There are no newb questions, only newb answers. :grin:

Welcome to D2 and to the forum. Have a read of the Stickied threads, there's lots of useful information in there.

One thing I will say, is keep chippies and flawed for cubing runes. I once cubed all my chippies and was in the embarressing position of not having any chippies. Don't make the same mistake. :laugh:

Re: Real newb with newb question!

chippies? ^^
The problem I have now is that I wanna move some stuff from 1 char too two others.
Is there any easy way to do this? Asking someone will prob end with the things getting
stolen >_<

I will take a look at the stickies :)

Re: Real newb with newb question!

There are several ways of muling. In general, the safer, the less convenient.

Bnet muling:

Drop items in a secret place in a public game while others are in. Come back with a different character.

Risk: High. Certain hacks allow the location of items on the ground or on your character. People might wonder about naked barbs running around in the game while not being partied. Also, sometimes you fail to join games while others are in, even if they are less than 8, due to a bug. I never mule items that way.

Quick muling:

Create passworded game, drop items, leave and re-enter with a different character, all within 60 seconds. Every game persists for at least 60 seconds, that's why it works.

Risk: Rather high. Items are lost if there is a delay and you failed to be back before 60 seconds are over. I use that method when I need free space for something quickly and it's about cheap stuff.

Normal muling:

Create passworded game, wait 5 minutes, leave and re-enter to see if it's still there, drop items leave game and come in with your mule. You can stay away for up to 5 minutes. After a game has become 5 minutes old, it will persist for another 5 minuters after all have left.

Risk: Rather low. In most cases you can be back within 5 minutes, even if your ISP line dropped. That's how I often mule when my inventory gets full while being busy in a game for some time (so it's already more than 5 minutes old) and if it's not about really valuable stuff.

Safe muling:

Buy the game twice, enter the muling game twice in parallel. Wait until the game is 5 minutes old (see above). One of the character keeps the game open and has enough free space to pick up everything on the ground in case of problems. The other is switched to mule items.

Risk: Low. Only a combination of things going wrong will lead to item loss. That's how I normally mule, e.g. when making several heaps of runes, jewels, charms, items etc. to divide them up among my mules. I avoid leaving anything on the ground for longer than 10 seconds which is worth more than Ist.

Very safe muling:

Buy the game twice, enter the muling game twice in parallel. Pass everything via the trade window. No item ever touches the ground.

Risk: Nearly none. Bnet ensures that characters are saved when leaving the trade window. The worst which can happen is a rollback which will restore the state from a few minutes before. That's how I'm muling items which are worth a HR or more.

This will be usefull if I do the same as I did 1 hour ago
I dropped some items in the camp and went to get some runes, got the runes

I tried the 60 secounds thingy
and when i tried to join the game (within 60 secounds) it said that the game existed
i took a easy gamename and password. =/

I have made 3 tries and 2 times with "expensive" items the rejoin with a diff char didnt work
but when I only dropped one gold it worked fine >_< gona try the 5min thingy now :]

I wounder if I need two D2 and two D2:LOD keys to be able to play online with 2 accounts at the same time
I going to town tomorrow and going to buy LOD but will buy D2 too if I need it.

Anyone know how it works? =)

first you 'create' a game, after you drop items and leave youll need to 'join' it
sorry if you lost any items

one other option for bnet muling is

Ask a Friend Muling
if you are good friends with someon irl (or pick someone from the trade forums with a good rating), ask them to help mule some items for you.
have them sit in a game to hold it open while you drop mule similar to quick muling

risks: they might steal some items (this site does not have a scammer list and will not create one, as the list would be huge, there is no limit to the number of accts someone can create)


which realm do you play on?

Re: Real newb with newb question!

if they use the same cd keys it wont work on bnet
only 1 key/set can be on bnet at a time

with 2 cd key sets, you can have both keys on in the same acct in the same game with different chars at the same time
