    I'll answer number 6, from my own opinion.

    6. Imbue ethereal items. Especially items that would be good in lld. Like harpoons, and ancient armor. If you get good stats and eth repair, they will be worth tons :) Also, probably any popular class-specific item. You would have to look up ideal level's for imbuing every item, as I have no idea.

    2. It depends on the forum usually. For the West forum, only 2 active trading threads per 24 hours. If it doesn't say in the rules thread of that trade forum, you could PM a mod about it if you have any questions.

    6. Can be opinion based, like reddude said. I personally like going for Circlets and Tiaras and stuff.

    7. Caster crafting stuff is pretty popular, Blood crafting stuff can be sold too.

    Re: Various Questions – Site and Game

    Would you mind helping me out if I requested it then, Gorny? :)

    Do you mean to say there are no limits as to how many threads you can have active, as long as you don't create more than two per 24 hours or whatever the time limit is on EUSCL?

    Also, updated original post regarding Q no. 7 and removed Q no. 3.

    there wasn't a need to edit the post and remove #3, actually.

    As to Trade value and concerns of that nature, it's a topic that belongs in the Trade Values Forum and not here.

    Re: Various Questions – Site and Game

    True. However there was a desire for it on my part, as I felt it had been aptly answered by you, and I believe I am entitled to edit my posts as I wish as long as it does not offend anyone or break any rules. Once again, though: Would you mind helping me change the topic title if I requested it then, Gorny? :)

    As for the Trade related questions belonging elsewhere, they are all of different sorts and I preferred not to make seven separate threads, one for each question, but rather make one in the general "community" forum instead. I hope you can let one slip!

    Depends on what the change is and why you want it changed.

    Re: Various Questions – Site and Game

    1. How exactly does fire absorb work as opposed to fire resistance? Also, will it be more or less effective the more fire resistance I have?

    It will recover your hp by % of the fire damage received. (DAMAGE APPLIED FIRST, so it is less effective with more fire res, but you risk being K.O'd

    2. How many different trading-threads are allowed to be made at the same time? I looked through the rules but could not find this specific information.

    On europe, 2

    4. Why are Cold-skillers with life worth significantly less than Warcry-skillers with the same amount of life?

    People do not need them so much. Supply and demand

    5. What rares are the best for rerolling (the most worth it)?

    Jewels only (and those only for once or twice.)

    6. What items are the best for imbuing(the most worth it)?

    Eth dimensional blades (If has high mods like +200 edmg, fools and ias, then UPG it) , boots circs.

    7. What different crafting-packs are commonly sought after? Please name all packs that you know are in demand in the following format: Rune+PG

    Crap jewel + required pgm + required rune

    Also spirit packs (spirit runes and hel)

    Insights too (Insight runes and hel)

    If this is true how come my health goes up when I get hit by fire, pretty sure I have only 16% on my gloves.

    Re: Various Questions – Site and Game

    1. Ok, thanks. More specifically, I want to know whether I should be using a BK or DS with 85 % FR in Hell.

    2. Does that mean I can only ever have two threads at the same time or that I can only open two threads within 24/48h?

    4. Excuse me, but that must be wrong. Are you aware that there are about ten times the Cold Sorcs that there are Barbs?

    5. What's wrong with Diadems?

    6. Why not eth Phase Blades to begin with? :S

    Also: So it's possible to imbue plain, white circlets?

    7. I think you've misunderstood my question completely:

    What different crafting-packs are commonly sought after? Please name all packs that you know are in demand in the following format: Rune+PG

    Example of what I'd like to see as an answer:

    Sol+PR
    Ral+PA

    :coffee:

    Re: Various Questions – Site and Game

    The trading rules say that you can start up to two threads within any period of 24 hours while the number of active threads is unlimited, but try to catch the spirit of the rules in addition to their letters. For example, I surely won't tolerate editing and then bumping up too many of your old trading threads at a time, even if it's made in concordance with the rules as they are now.

    BTW, the rules can be ignored by the mods for moderation purposes if it's necessary to serve some greater good. What that is, that's our decision, not yours, and we won't provide an exact definition. That's why Elly selected us and not other people :p

    Re: Various Questions – Site and Game

    The problem with asking for answers in a specific format is that some answers might not fit that format. In this case, some runes and gems are indeed traded in packs, but many others are more commonly traded separately, since they can be used in various recipes.

    Here are some notes on popular craft materials:

    Ral + Amethyst = Caster amulet
    Ort + Sapphire = Hit power (knockback) gloves
    Nef + Ruby = Blood gloves
    Tal + Ruby = Blood belt
    Amn + Ruby = Blood amulet
    Sol + Ruby = Blood ring
    Thul + Emerald = Safety amulet

    As you can see, rubies are used in so many recipes that they are, more often than not, traded separately from runes. Only the first two recipes are ones where you could expect to trade in packs. The rest of the runes and gems are usually traded separately in bulk.

    Re: Various Questions – Site and Game

    5. What's wrong with Diadems?

    Rares will get a lower item lv after rerolling so you are better off gambling for circs =)

    6. Why not eth Phase Blades to begin with? :S

    Because phase blades can't spawn eth =)

    Also: So it's possible to imbue plain, white circlets?

    That is correct.

    4. Excuse me, but that must be wrong. Are you aware that there are about ten times the Cold Sorcs that there are Barbs?

    All cold sorcs are wearing crapload of mf charms rather than skillers.

    Re: Various Questions – Site and Game

    Thank you. I am aware of that, but I was looking for the most popular crafting packs in particular. More opinions and additions welcome! :)

    5. IIRC that does apply to Jewels while it does not apply to Diadems. With this taken into account, why should you reroll Jewels rather than Diadems? :S

    6. I see! :p Thank you for pointing that out.

    Re: Various Questions – Site and Game

    This is incorrect. The reroll recipe for rares works the same way for all kinds of items, including jewels and diadems. After one or two rerolls, the ilvl will have dropped too much for the item to be any use for further rerolls.

    There is a special rule concerning circlets and ilvl, but it has nothing to do with rerolls. See here for more on that.

    And even if diadems could be rerolled indefinitely, where would you get all the perfect skulls to do it? It is much more efficient to gamble circlets. Jewels cannot be gambled, which is why you should keep rare jewels to reroll them.

    No item that is indestructible may spawn as ethereal. This includes all phase blades, magic items with the indestructible mod, and various uniques.
