the truth about marrowwalk

Marrowwalk
Boneweave Boots


Defense: 183-204 (varies)(Base Defense: 59-67)
Required Level: 66
Required Strength: 118
Durability: 16
Assassin Kick Damage: 69-118

+170-200% Enhanced Defense (varies)
+20% Faster Run/Walk
+1-2 To Skeleton Mastery (Necromancer Only) (varies)
+10-20 To Strength (varies)
+17 To Dexterity

Heal Stamina Plus 10%
Half Freeze Duration
Level 33 Bone Prison (13 Charges)
Level 12 Life Tap (10 Charges)

(Only Spawns In Patch 1.10 or later)

These are marrowwalk's stats (is shown at http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp )

This is the stat that most people talk about "Level 33 Bone Prison (13 Charges)". As you can see it doesnt not say +33 to Bone Prison. Therefore it isn't a "+ to skills" item. "13 Charges" This tell you that these are charge and should not give u any plus to skills. You might ask ur self "If marrowwalk doesnt give +33 to Bone Prison then why does the skill tree show a lvl 33 bone prison?". there is a simple answer for that, this is a bug that was over looked in the beta. No the programs didnt feel bad for what they did to necros in 1.03 and on. They just typed the wrong code.

People trying to tell you marrowwalk isnt a bug just want to hid the fact that they need extra help to win a duel. This isnt new, look at the zons of 1.09 many of them had 40 290psn chrams on them.

1. the skill tree doesn't show a lvl 33 bone prison

2. sry, but your post isn't anything ppl haven't already brought up, and it won't stop the debate as to whether it's a bug or feature. only bliz officially saying one way or the other will.

not the first time nor the last time a question of "bug vs feature" has come up w.r.t. diablo II. I try not to worry about these things because in order to assess them you need to judge Blizzard's intent, and they can be sooo dam stupid sometimes.

However, your reasoning is all wrong. The skill tree does not show a lvl 33 bone prison, and + to skills do not affect synergy bonusses, so even if your claim of marrowwalk being incorrectly recognized as + to skills was true, that wouldn't explain the synergy damage bonus.

If you don't want to duel marrowwalk users, check in on one of those legit dueling clans, or what have you. Arguing isn't doing any good...

(about 1st paragraph) why assess intent? someone messing up is much more likey than blizzard intending to give necros more dmg at the cost of BP.

(about 2nd paragraph) ok fine it doesnt show 33 on the skill tree. your point? that just shows that there isnt a way to explain it as legit.

(about 3rd paragraph) who said anything about not wanting to fight them??? i made a dueling necro so that i could kill people that wear marrowwalk. its so much more fun to kill people that think finding a loop hole means they will win. aslo i talk about this so people start thinking of new ways to fight and dont rely on something that will go away in the next patch.

ps- stpkong wtf are you talking about?

uncreativereally, what can I say, your name is brutally appropriate, there have already been 80 million threads exactly like this, and you bring nothing new to the table

I agree that it is a bug, it is apparent that they intended for charges to receive synergy bonuses, not give them

Conc working with BH for Pal is not announce somedays before in previous patch.
People found it and regard it as a 'BUG'
Sometime later, Blizzard announce it as a feature.
A similar situation as +skill item with synergy.
Let Blizzard decide what to do.

Very simple answer to the debate people.

Marrowwalk rewards the player for NOT placing points in a skill, in excess of anything achievable by any player that did allocate skill points.

It is therefore a bug.

Quad Erat Demonstradum, or something.

superman is always stronger than spiderman since superman can't be hurt by anything other than kryptonite. however spiderman is way more powerfull than batman since batman uses nothing but gadgets. spiderman would beat the crap out of batman without items :d

Is the only problem with marrowwalks that they give a lvl 33 bone prison instead of 13 lvl 33 bone prison charges?
