Yep, forgot about that. I haven't found any resist all jewels yet, so I might proceed with the Ort Rune solution, with the possibility of Hel'ing it out later. I've never actually advanced this far in the game so I'm running into all sorts of problems I haven't had to deal with before.Insane Wayne said:(Also, I don't mean to be a nitpick, but I thought Blackhorn's was banned because of the lightning damage it inflicts. Just a friendly heads-up. No big deal.)
When you play untwinked, the gem requirements in those recipes can be really annoying. I mean, itÂ´s not like your character hasnÂ´t seen his share of chipped amethysts during his career! In NM and beyond, you can easily play more than an act without seeing a particular type of chipped gem. In situations like yours, I have sometimes tried the 1/7 chance a Gem Shrine offers!azn_apocalypse said:I need a sol rune (or a chipped amethyst) to make the Honor runeword for my merc.
I too am woefully behind. I'm going to play for 5-6 tonight for at least a little catch-up.Gaz said:It appears that I have been falling behind in this tournament, so this week will be declared Venomsin Week. Expect much progress by next week Monday.
Yeah, I've tried that several times myself. Lesser gems and runes are always the first thing to go when stash space is critical. I very rarely repeat an area, but if I'm frustrated, I'll start a new game and farm a Normal Act 1 area for chips, and low runes when needed.jiansonz said:In NM and beyond, you can easily play more than an act without seeing a particular type of chipped gem.

YouÂ´re certainly not crazy if you use whatever seems to be working best.Insane Wayne said:Call me crazy, but I went back to the Woestave. 35% CB is enough. And I like the safety provided by the Slowing/Freezing/Blinding.
Many great finds indeed. I canÂ´t keep from looking at your screenies, even though I donÂ´t want to know the stats of items I havenÂ´t found yet...Insane Wayne said:Well guys, I'm really stunned by the frequency of these great finds. This is the most fun I've had with a MF character ever. The best part is, I can safely equip 90% of my maximum MF full-time, and still inflict massive poison damage. I've never cleared p8 Hell with well over 400% full-time MF, so maybe some of this is to be expected. But I still have to believe the D2 gods were smiling on me when I found that Tal's.
Since you can no longer win the tournament, I hope you continue on /p8. I want to know what the final level will be on a /p8 complete game clear. Do you think Emerald will reach level 90?Insane Wayne said:Champion Emerald Lin, level **, Act 5 Hell, Crystalline Passage
You also got a Perfect Emerald, which is very fitting, considering how strong a character she seems to be.Insane Wayne said:
I know what you mean. I never even knew unique vambraces existed. What a treat to ID them, even if they're useless for me.jiansonz said:Many great finds indeed. I canÂ´t keep from looking at your screenies, even though I donÂ´t want to know the stats of items I havenÂ´t found yet...
Absolutely will continue on p8. I don't think I'll reach level 90. XP gains have slowed down a lot. It depends on the XP bonus from the Ancients. I'm not sure I can handle p8 Ancients. I'll try though. I wonder if the XP gained from them is higher on p8 than p1? There were a couple areas I started on p1 before switching to p8, but the difference should be negligible. I lost a little XP from two careless deaths in Act 2, and retrieved my corpse both times; so the net XP loss is small. I'm still doubtful about hitting 90 though. 89 for sure.jiansonz said:Since you can no longer win the tournament, I hope you continue on /p8.
