    Stack health or mana (with items) for normal?

    I realize that you should stack both to some degree, but I was wondering which I should emphasize more in my items. Should I go for 60% mana 40% health or 50/50 or maybe even lop side it strongly towards one? (this is assuming a str/vit stack stat point wise)
    Same Q on NM and Hell plz, just for future reference.

    ty in advance

    I don't think there is a set amount you should shoot for. Are you dying too much? Probably need more health. Running out of mana? Well then some extra mana gear would probably be a greater help to you more likely than not.

    If you can, try to get some +50 mana Grand Charms. One of my necros didn't use Insight, so I stacked the mana charms on to get the most of out the mana bulb.

    I'd keep your stat points about the same as everyone suggests. Strength for whatever gear, Dex for block or no block, rest in Vitality.

    It's pretty easy to fix mana problems with Insight, though.

    IMHO, always get mana from gear. It's cheaper and more effective.

    Norm: What I do is, make a new character and immediately join some Trist runs. Get to lvl 15. Then:

    * 2 flawless sapphires in a cap;
    * 3 flawless sapphires in a breastplate, or use "stealth" runeword
    * 2x mana boosting rings (+40 mana or something. This is better than twin manalds, btw.)
    * Lenymo sash, if you can ever find someone to trade for it
    * Civerb's amulet
    * +mana grand charms

    For NM, mana ceases to be a problem because your merc is using insight in an exceptional polearm. Also, you'll be upgrading your rings to SOJ's or 100+ mana rings, and also spirit gives you a nice fat boost. edit: frosties, too

    For Hell, it's wizardspike, homun, shako, and the usual stuff. You get free mana points just for leveling up, even if you don't click them off, so that helps.
