    What is the dumbest thing you have done?

    Well, I'll start with the classic:

    I decided to put a PTopaz in my Ali Baba thinking it would add to my MF when all it did was add lightning damage to it, DUH! :embarrass

    I also decided to SELL Griswold's Heart Ornate Armor since I had no way of muling in SF before. I decided to keep Lightsaber instead in my already full inventory and stach, thinking it would be more usefull... :scratch:

    So, now that I made a foul of myself, what dumb things did you do in this game...?

    Way back in Wizardry 6: Bane of the Cosmic Forge I had my fighter run around with an "Inferior Sword" for ages. I didn't have a clue, what inferior meant, and as the item was hard to find, I thought it had to be absolutely ubar!!!1!!11!1one :teeth:

    I've done too many, just couple of days ago, I almost got my HC necro killed, just because the phone rings, I didn't push the game before answer the phone. (he was standing in fairly empty room with his skelly army around, only 1 or 2 monsters were still fighting, so I let him there, but the game sent some champ monster entered the room, straight run to my necro, I hit Esc just before he could recieve 2nd hit - the first hit took almost all health bar away, only a hair red left.)

    This one time about 5 or 6 years ago, I bought this game called Diablo for $9 and thought "Hmm, this can't be that disruptive."

    Before I knew how to mule items, I saved every gem I found, regardless of quantity or quality. I don’t want to know how many green or gold items I sold just so I could keep my gem collection intact.

    And I never even used any of them! :lol:

    How about moving items around in your inventory and socketing an Elite socketed armor with some junk rune or gem. I have done that more times than I care to remember. Oogh how about an el rune in your Archon Plate, thats effective. lol

    yeah i have destroyed some fine items in .09 by socketing them with junk to...

    even worse would have been the guy who accidently put his CHAM in some crapy item

    i would prefer loosing some eliteitem over loosing a charm rune anyday since a-runes are so rare, b-i never find runes.

    :)

    Yea in v110 it is not that big a deal now because you can unsocket the item but in v109 it was tragic. I have also saved and exited games before without picking up items I had lying on the ground...
    In fact I left a Nat's helm this way the other day. Not a huge loss but still I could have used the helm eventually.
