ilvl? I don't understand?

Item level. Items have a level, higher ones can get better stats. To see an item level, pick up the item on your cursor, and then open the chat box and type "/itemlevel". It will tell you what level the item is. Edited by FootballDummy

ilvl? I don't understand?

Item level is a separate stat on all items, it is determined by the level of the zone you are in, for example if the level of the zone you are in is 50 then the ilvl of the items dropped by white mobs will be ilvl 50, magic mobs (blue) will drop ilvl 51 loots and rare/boss mobs will drop ilvl 52 loots.ilvl determines the affixes an item can get. For example, ilvl 0-10 can get 10-19 life on an item, but at ilvl 73 you can get from 100-109 life on an item.You can identify the itemlevel of an item you own by clicking it so it is one your cursor and then typing /itemlevel Edited by Run It Up

I typically use warlords mark for my physical melee characters and elemental weakness for my elemental melee characters, and I use enfeeble on both.

I don't think I would have enough mana to do 2 :bag: Running haste and vitality auras right now. I need to get some linked armor at some point to hook reduced mana in to them.

are you and Kool Aid same person?

If you want to know how long you have played a certain character, the game keeps track of the stat.

Can't dual curse without the keystone either way.I don't use them on the same mobs, I use them in different situations. I use Warlords on big packs for the extra leech and to refill my charges, I use enfeeble on bosses and champs because it cuts their damage by like a third.

Finished Cruel Act 2. Vaal got me twice with the fist of death. Single shot deaths.

Not going to start act 3 until I level up from my current 55 to 56 as I have a significant upgrade waiting for me for my bow at 56. It is going to take a while though to grind up up even 3/4 of a level because I am way overleveled for where I am right now.

Still happy to have made it this far on my first character with no other help. If the bow is as good an upgrade as I hope, I think I can get through Cruel Act 3.

Another question - how is cyclone treating people? Just had one drop. Also got a point blank support gem - seems like that one could be very valuable in certain instances.

yep. the folks that are running the better maps go through the scrolls real fast. I spoke to a guy on my friends list who has a char in the 80s and he said he rolls through them. sadly must of the yellow stuff is crap.

So what do you find yourself doing with non-quality gems that suck? I have a whole page of dubious ones that I am holding onto for some dumb reason.

Would love an answer to this as well. I have a blue, green and red tab each filled with their regular gems and I just cant see throwing them away.

I have this fear I will vendor them and the next day they will announce that 10 regulars will get you a chaos or some such. It would not even be worth the time to try and sell them for an alt or chromatic.

People trying to find a new way to make money, there is some rumblings about joining public docks groups and going through old instances to collect the blues, identify them and sell to vendors for alts.This however seems terrible as the investment in scrolls eats directly into your profits.

So what do you find yourself doing with non-quality gems that suck? I have a whole page of dubious ones that I am holding onto for some dumb reason.

I keep at least one of every non-quality gem, and I keep multiples of auras and curses. I keep all of my supports however, the rest I either delete or never pickup, if I'm pubbing I will drop skill gems occasionally near champs so I can collect the actual loot without being body blocked.

Every time you say that its a unique that is actually pretty good lmfao. Its a pretty rare unique, great for leveling - the lack of life sucks but it gives up to 30 all stats, which is huge for leveling.I on the other hand have 3 Sadimas Touch and Wanderlusts - which don't get me wrong are actually amazing but ffs drop something else.Last unique I found was a Bramblejack... in a 73 map... wtf.

I purchased roughly 1000 wisdom scrolls for 2 chaos (was a great deal, since I have seen them go for as little as 120 per chaos). I farm the crap out of the game until we get more content. I pick up about 1.5 chaos every 2 runs in the docks. I can go through a stack of scrolls pretty quick. So if you get 2 shards per scroll (which would be very very unlucky) you are looking at 2000 shards. OF that 2000 shards (again if you are very unlucky) that comes out to 200 alterations. And, even at the very poor trade rate of 20 alts per 1 chaos that puts you at 20 Chaos. 18 Chaos profit, for farming and gaining xp while making a profit. I am not bragging, I just found a niche and have exploited it to some very nice stacks of chaos. My math might be off a little bit, but in the end if you are willing to farm you can gain some really nice profits. The down side is having to trade with people which can take a lot of time. If you have any questions about how to turn scrolls into riches let me know.GL

oh yeah - forgot I was on my phone.

not to turn this into a blog, but I got my first unique, silverbranch bow, and it's not too exciting.

so, maybe you guys can give me some input.

I'm ~lvl29 witch who happens to use all fire spells, but I didn't plan it that way -- I was going to use more variety.

I had planned to get a lot of crit skills, although I have no idea how efficient that is.

I have a few passive points piling up, as I can't decide if I should get fire skills, crit skills, or start motoring down a longer path towards some cool keystone.

any thoughts on that?

this is my build so far, if it helps any.

OK in the time it took me to post the original what I do with my scrolls I made 1 chaos worth of Alterations. You turn the alterations shards into alterations orbs. You turn the Alteration Orbs into fusing orbs or some other type of orb that people want to buy. Simple, but very very time consuming.

Ok let me see if I can roughly add this up

3 chaos = 7 fuses = 28 jewelers = 56 alts = 1120 Alt Shards = 560 identified blues

I must be misunderstanding something here. How are you getting so many blues in just a couple of runs of the dock?

At higher levels they drop like crazy. Make sure to use item quantity.

BTW, does item rarity help with quality gems vs regular? I get maybe a quality per 20-30 regular. Wondering if I should bump rarity. I have my quantity gem almost maxed and also found another.

I have item quantity and rarity in my weapon. I also use a portal gem so that I don't have to use the WP over and over.

20 alt shards are around 10 blue weapons, more for yellow.

20 alt shards equal 1 alt

8 alt equals 4 jewelers orbs

2 jewelers orbs trade for 1 fusing orb

2 fusing orbs trade for 1 chaos or equal

You have to also take into account farming green red blue linked for chromes.

Picking up other orbs to trade like alchs, chance, and maybe get lucky and pick up a choas, regal, or something better.

My math was using the vendor recipe of 4 jewelers for one fuse. Sounds like I can do much better with trading jewelers with players.

For those farming, it is accepted that quantity is better than rarity. Especially consider in wanting to get linked items, you want more to drop to improve odds. Rarity does not help with linked is my understanding.

eta quantity helps with currency as well, not rarity at all.

Rarity only affects your chance to get blues, yellows and uniques.Quantity increases your chance to get all items except maps.Its much harder to get quantity however.Supposed to be a patch today, its 3am in NZ now, they usually patch around noon their time. Edited by Run It Up

I ran a public map last night and unique gloves dropped for me. They got ninja'd before I could get them. When I called them on it, they laughed. It was the end of the map, and I got screwed. If more mobs were left I would have trained them all to the group to wipe them.

apparently Divine only randomizes the numbers within the same "tier" and cannot jump tiers

I guess that is the whole roll thing? Could be better but could get horrible. This is why I buy nice stuff. Pay out the nose but you know what you are getting. Some people have fun crafting I guess kinda like gambling.

OK, once more - explain the maps to me. I have 2 now, both level 66. What level should I realistically attempt them? Do I chance them first? What stats are desirable to get? Do you keep using alts until you get the mods you want? How long do they take typically to solo?

You might have a misunderstanding of how divines work.They don't roll the brackets of affixes, only the roll within those brackets.So if you had the 90-99 bracket on an item and you had a 90 roll, then divined it, that 90 life will only be within that 90-99 life bracket again. I think each divine only rolls 3 affixes as well, so there is another element of chance. Either way they are pretty garbage orbs and are reserved for very rare cases.

Maps are hard. I usually die multiple times when I attempt them solo. I ran one with Shiznnnit and we both died the maximum times before the end. I was level 70 and he was 72 on a level 68 map. I did run a fairly short map with Jojo where we finished it and both only died once. I typically transmute them and then use alts to get something fairly profitable and safe.eta: When I solo, it's usually the unique bosses that get me. Something like a super fast Rhoa that that 2 hits me, when I have 3k health and multiple endurance charges up. Edited by FootballDummy
