    Re: Test your D2 knowledge: Trivia Game

    I believe Azmodan was the Lord of Sin. Duriel was the Prince of Pain, and Belial was the Lord of Lies.
    No idea, so I'm gonna say 'the manual', same as NagisaFurukawa.
    Devil.
    1999.
    Act III, Kurast.
    5.
    18.
    Yes.
    Just under 17.
    Yes. However, that's not 'some staves', it's only the Serpent Lord unique staff. The weapon type needs to be compatible with the finishing move used; in game terms this only affects Dragon Claw, so your switch would need to be dual-claw.
    No.
    No. It is, however, affected by physical resistance in that less physical damage is inflicted, which reduces how much life Tap returns.
    Succubi, skeletons and kin (horrors, burning dead, corpses, including archers, but no skeletal mages of any flavor though), fallen type monsters (no shamans), balrog-type monsters, goat men, goat archers, scavengers, doom knights and kin, mages, poison spitters, overlords, vipers, gargoyles, fiends and kin, horned demons and kin, and zombie-type monsters. I think that's it. Ones in italics are also in D2. Scavengers, vipers, and fiends are also in D2 in altered form.

    However, you should have excluded Hellfire not because you couldn't remember, but instead because it wasn't an official Blizzard product. :)
    No. In v1.07 (maybe v1.08) and earlier, gear-based elemental damage was carried by LF and the bolts it released. Crushing blow, open wounds, and other such effects also were carried by LF and its bolts. However, as elemental damage charms did not exist back then, the answer remains no.
    No. When using a bow or crossbow with the 'fires exploding arrows' mod, or a bow with charges of Exploding Arrow, fire damage from charms, gear, and Enchant stack with the fire damage from the arrows (including splash damage). However, the sorceress spells receive no direct bonus.
    Yes, in current versions at least. I'm not sure about older versions.
    The paladin can hit a one-frame block with Holy Shield and the right gear.
    Staves, orbs, wands, runes, gems, jewels, potions, scrolls, and tomes cannot be gambled for. The Cow King set cannot be gambled for either (well, not successfully).

    Re: Test your D2 knowledge: Trivia Game

    You're doing well and as far as I can see most questions have been answered correctly, just not by everyone. This should narrow it down a bit :smiley:
    1. Of the Lesser Evils, who is Azmodan? Very close Ikeren but pharaoh got it after you. Lord of Sin.
    2. Where will you find thanks to Isaac Asimov? Yes the manual or the game manual is good enough.
    3. What does Diablo mean in Spanish? Devil = True. Well done, another point if you got that.
    4. What was the official release date of Diablo 2? According to wikipedia and mobygames it was the 29th June 2000.
    5. From which Act (and area) do Paladins come from? Its Kurast as far as I know. The Knights of Westmarch decended from Kurast.
    6. What level does Leap need to be to jump the rocky walls in the desert area of Act 2? 18 = Yep that sounds right. I'll have to go and check that again later.
    7. Do the bolt's of lightning created by the skill Thunder Storm gain frequency as the skill increases? Most of you got this, yes is the answer. However I can't find any tables to show by how much. Sorry bout that.
    8. On an 800x600 screen, what is the width of the screen in game yards? No one has this correct yet. Pharaoh is very close.

    That's almost half of them so I'll be back within 24 hours to complete it. Enjoy and thanks for taking the time. :wink:

    Re: Test your D2 knowledge: Trivia Game

    ... in the meantime, here's a filler question that someone's sure to know.


    Name an item that:

    1. Will sell to the vendors for less than the "maximum" amount (i.e. 35k in Hell, 30k in Nightmare, 5k-25k in Normal, depending on the act).

    and

    2. Can be sold for the same amount as a 'cracked' item as it sometimes will as a 'rare' item. (In other words, if it sells for exactly 5 gold as a cracked-quality item, sometimes it'll sell for exactly 5 gold as a rare-quality item).

    Re: Test your D2 knowledge: Trivia Game

    Both no idea (great start !)

    Devil

    Can't remember - never really seemed important. 2001 ish?

    Gonna guess act 2, as one of the NPCs intro speech to pallies starts 'Welcome brother Paladin'

    No idea - never needed to know.

    No idea - never played a char that used it.

    Something in the region of 20 isn't it?

    Not a great player of this type of char, but my gut instinct tells me that the mana steal is only dependant on the physical damage, so I doubt that there would be a big benefit. Only real use I can invisage is to charge up on the fast weapon and finish with a slow one

    Wouldn't have thought so, as smite uses the shield. However, game mechanics aren't always what you'd expect ...

    Don't think so, but not 100% sure.

    Those star shooting witches, various skeletons and goatmen. Griswold was in D1, but not as a monster. Also, don't forget the Secret Cow Level - IT WAS THERE :)))

    Wouldn't have thought so. I think charms only get added to physical damage. However, if the javelin also does its physical damage, then yes.

    Don't think so, for the same reasons as above.

    I think this is the case

    No idea - a zon with a sword it ain't ! Dual wielding Assassin maybe?

    Yes, let me think ...
    Gheed's charm, Anni, Torch, necro heads - probably more

    I'm glad I didn't know them all - would have worried me if I did :)

    Re: Test your D2 knowledge: Trivia Game

    -Azmodan and Belial are the 2 lesser evils not shown in the game. Belial is the Lord of Lies I believe, but I can't remember Azmodan.
    -Don't know this one
    -Devil
    -Oh man, it was I believe May 25th, 2000?
    -Act 3, Kurast.
    -Hm, no idea. I'm going to guess 3.
    -Probably around 3.
    -No
    -Wow, no clue. 10ish?
    -Yes, but if you switched to a staff, your damage would be pitiful.
    -I don't believe so.
    -I would tend to say no.
    -Um, a lot? Skeletons, Fallen, Zombies, those little flying guys I think they were Imps, Hidden, Pit Monsters? (Spitter guys), Inferno winged guys (like Venom Lords, forget what they were called), Succubus (of course!), Serpent things that exploded weird when they died, Death Knights, there was also some sort of teleporting mage guy like the Ghoul Lords. I'm missing a bunch too.
    -Yes. Question is a bit confusing, but either way I interpret it, yes.
    -If you mean charms like "Adds 1-2 Cold damage," then no. If it's somehow something like "+10% Cold skill damage," then yes.
    -I think so, actually.
    -Don't know, but I'd guess Paladin.
    -Well, it used to be that you couldn't get a SoJ without having Manald Heal and Nagelring already, but they got rid of that. With all the mods I've been playing, I'm not sure what's allowed in gamble or not anymore :laugh: . Jewels are not, though, and neither are any of the potion items or gems. Other than that, I think everything's in there.

    Some more answers
    On an 800x600 screen, what is the width of the screen in game yards? 16.7 yards to the dot.
    Can an assassin switch weapons when doing a finishing move in order to benefit from the items mods? Example: some staves have 100% mana steal, would you get that? Yes.
    Does Smite benefit from weapon ranges? Yes.
    Is lifetap affected by the drop in Life Leech you get from monsters in Nightmare and Hell? No. Its based on your damage.
    Which monsters were in Diablo 1? (not including hellfire because I can't remember)
    This one is undoubtably opinionated as some of the monsters that were in D1 seem to be graphically but they've been either Upped or given different names. Some monsters have the same name, so here goes:
    Zombie variety
    Skeletons variety
    Fallen variety
    Goatmen variety
    Gloom/BatDemon (almost identical)
    Cave/Claw Viper variety
    Megademon/Barlog (almost identical)
    DoomGuard/DoomKnight (except no spells in D1)
    Succubus (almost identical)
    Since nothing is truely identical 'almost identical' is the closest.

    Re: Test your D2 knowledge: Trivia Game

    This question was ambiguous. I interpreted it to mean the released bolts, but as the first thrown javelin benefits, I can accept being wrong.
    Are you sure of this? I'm certain that, for example, a charm with the 'of the icicle' suffix will not help cold spells. The same goes for other elements.

    Charm-based fire damage might lead you to think it does, since it will be cumulative with Enchant. Remember, however, that this is not a case of Enchant receiving a bonus; it is instead a case of the character receiving fire damage from multiple sources. To put it another way, the character would receive the same charm damage with or without Enchant, and would receive the same Enchant damage with or without the charm.
    Wirt's Leg. Since it cannot be sold, one can argue it 'sells for zero gold', and this holds true whether or not it's been imbued. :)

    All kidding aside, has anyone ever seen a low-quality Wirt's Leg?

    I didn't know Smite's range is affected by your weapon. Are you sure about this? I thought the range is always 1.

    This is not entirely correct. The blocking speed is independent of the level of HS. A Paladin with HS active (any lvl) blocks at 2 frames initially and at 1 frame with 86% FBR.

    Smite indeed depends on weapon range.

    I had no idea over half of the answers. But I was very surprised that how many got the smite range wrong. I think it shows not many do PvP or at least not many do smiter PvP. I thought the reason why the weapon of choice of PvP smiter is zerk axe, is partly because it is range 3 weapon, the longest one hand weapon can reach.
