    Seeking an Author to write a Beginners FAQ

    Hey all,

    I want someone to write a beginner friendly FAQ. It should be as short as possible and include links to all the major sources of info. You might also want to include commonly asked gear questions, such as: what bow for my hunter, wolf, etc. You can also include common slang and acronyms, etc.

    Please let me know who is doing it so I can sticky it up top.

    Garbad

    lol do it yourself. and i see a lot of people in channel but there's never any duels up. i think you mods should spend more time in the game gettin duels starts rather than trying to reach 6 digit post count.

    Garbad,

    Guess again... :evil:

    Of course I'm married with 4 of my own kids so I guess I'm out of the picture anyway! :winner:

    Here are some of the topics I think would be good in a Beginner's Guide:

    A list of common acronyms would be handy
    IAS, WIAS, OIAS, SIAS
    HOTO
    BotD
    'zerk
    eth (specifically distinguish between Eth the rune & ethereal the characteristic)
    etc.

    A brief intro to merc's & their uses

    What abilities are required for which builds (Fury, Hunter, FC, Windy, MB, etc.)

    What skills are most important for which builds.

    What item mods are most valuable to which builds (so poor beginners can evaulate the relative benefit of the magic & rares they find).

    Brief guide to good mf/rune hunting grounds

    Brief guide to difficult PvM areas (Duriel, Ancients, Baal, etc.)

    What to expect in Hell so you're build is ready when it gets there!

    Tips for PvM play (e.g. cast your bear between you and a mob).

    Tips for PvP play (what to watch for in your opponents builds & actions)

    We appreciate the sacrifice made by the "old timers" of the group on this effort!

    Where can I find a non-magical elite 5-socketed Champion Axe to put the Beast runeword into? (I'm being serious, by the time I start finding elite weapons, everything that I find or is being sold is at least magical, and so won't work with Runewords.)

    What's the best build for a Party? (I'm currently playing as the tank for a Sorceress, so I'm concentrating on WereBear, and Oak Sage, so that I can be a big shield for her, but some helpful party tactics and builds would be nice to see.)

    you can use information in my guide.
    lots of beginner stuff there
    I may also write one/expand my guide if the info covers some considerable portion of what is needed

    :scratch: , I'm a Polygamist?

    BTW, I know "w00t!" is supposed to be "woot!" and sound like "w ew' t".

    But wouldn't it really sound like "w oe t" and doesn't that just sound stupid?

    How did "Pwn" ever come to mean "Own" unless people were really bad typists?

    Why would anyone use this smiley: :flip: ?
