    45 times run countess, nihlatak and summoner, not a single key. I think I'll just pass those f***ers from now on. Seriously

    Re: The Disappointments Thread

    I was looking through the EuSCL trade forum and noticed someone bidding 2xJah+Ber for a 20 life, 11 cold resist small charm. I never would have thought it would be so valuable, and thought about how a similar charm would give me the currency I need to finish my Enigma.

    I started doing a few D-key runs and picked up a small charm along the way, completed 4-5 runs before I remembered to ID and my heart skipped a beat when I saw 20 life and 11 res... I was absolutely psyched that I'd found something with a high currency value... until I actually looked at what the resistance was. Poison. Fudging poison resist.

    Re: The Disappointments Thread

    Here is my rare disapointment #2. I guess the reason these almost awesome rares bum me out, is I have had two goals this ladder. #1: To find the SEXIEST white wand base imaginable, and #2: To find rare equipment that can compete with uniques and runewords. Last night, I found this crystal sword:

    [​IMG]

    If that had some decent enhanced damage instead of knockback, this could of been such a rare weapon when I upgraded it, since I don't believe phase blades can spawn as ethereal as they have no durability, but this one could of been eth and indestructible, without the need for a zod! Oh well, I'm going to keep looking :(

    Re: The Disappointments Thread

    I was farming in a private game with my summon necro when I saw the SOJ sold message. I TP back to town to wait for D to walk, and the game isn't permed yet, so I go afk to get food. Come back about six minutes later to D2 at the login screen, AIM yelling that I'm logged in twice, and a download cancelled. And of course the game poofed. :thumbsdown:

    io runes in general

    Lets face it, we've all seen a io rune drop in CS or WSK or where ever, and just for those blissful few seconds we think "oh, a Lo rune, that's sweeeeeet!", then we look more closely, and realise it's the ginger b*stard stepchild instead.

    Could Blizz have created a more useless rune? Next patch / D3, forget large stashes, whichdoctors and the like, i'd be as happy as a pig in poop if io's had a use/value!


    *NB nothing against gingers / b*stards / stepchildren in general :D
    and yes, i know it would have gone thru the filter, but i'm not using it in the D2 context.

    12544262 sold to merchants....
    4-5 seconds later
    diablo walks the earth...

    now this is the part that will suck forever, me and this pala running to wp, i pp him but hes having none of it, rightly so, i could barely solo A1 mobs let alone dclone, then it hits me... i have no wp's i justgot into hell! :(

    2 mins later he proceeds to tell me the anni was only medicore forgot the stats, atleast it wasnt perf, been saying that all week.

    Re: The Disappointments Thread

    dw faust, the superior+eth killed it anyways, but it could have been so nice.

    But on that note, why do all my really low def eth armours always ebug to 4os, whilst anything that would get over 1075 or so def only ever get 1-3 os's :(. I'm running out of mercs to put eTreachery's on.
