    upping elites

    I have read on vaioius sources that upgrading elites can only be done with a ladder character. I was just wondering if this is true or not; I'd rather not try it and end up losing my items.

    The reason i disbelieve the ladder only rule is because lots of sites also list griffon's eye as a ladder only item, yet i play non-ladder and they do exist in non-ladder games.

    You can't upgrade elites. You can upgrade exceptional rares/uniques to elites.

    The reason you can find ladder only stuff in non-ladder is because when season 1 ended people from ladder mixed with non-ladder people and so everyone could get their hands on ladder-only items...Probably a lot of people itching to get their hands on Grief, Fortitude, etc. Also if you play singleplayer you'll also have acces to ladder-only items except for the 2 newest batches of runewords...

    Welcome to the forums:)

    Upping Exceptional UNIQUES can only be done on Ladder. You can't upgrade Elites.

    just to clarify, it goes normal -> exceptional -> elite

    exceptional -> elite can only be done on ladder

    Hey, you sure about that?

    So there are Griffon's Eyes and Tomb Reavers in single player?

    so all the rune words says only work on realm game and laddar also works on single player then, such as
    Dragon Sur + Lo + Sol or
    Infinity Ber + Mal + Ber + Ist

    Liliel: Yes I'm sure:)...Yes there are many Griffon's Eyes and Tomb Reaver's in Single player you just have to find them yourself:)

    zy009: Not all the runewords... If you check my quote in Liliel's post you'll see which ones can be found. The ones you mention are unfortunately not included in single player and are realm only:( Not that you'd be able to make them...dual Ber:)

    Go here for more information on runewords and which ones can/can't spawn in Single Player if you're still in doubt.

    Mm i am pretty sure that ladder only items dont drop in single player, but maybe they changed that.

    Huh... so perhaps I shouldn't have been so shocked to find a Gheed's charm in my game...
