After running some high level areas with the necro, I just quit out to relogin
with a mule account, and ended up at a "Downloading Patching" screen. 32%
complete as of now. I wonder what it is...

In case anyone is wondering, this still doesn't mean that they've
fixed Peace. They've still only "fixed" the crash by making it not
cast the Valkyrie when equipped on mercs. (I tested by letting my merc
clear WSK2 wearing Peace; the Valk should've appeared in that time.)

Shame - it would've been a cool merc armor.

Bug fixes are bug fixes, I always say.

And Patrick had already posted the patch notes on the other thread, which is
why I didn't go back and do it again. :-)

I actually knew that. Sometimes I just like to be difficult just on general
principle.

When I posted this over on the AB, there was some indication that a "Mac bug"
had been fixed. Is the "Mac bug" anything to do with either of these listed
changes?

Well, I think it took a few people a while to figure it out...

Darn, there goes that experiment out of the window. I'd have tried it if
only for the additional 'buffer' created by a Valk. As is, my sorc- and
paladin project always feel very exposed, not only when compared to a
Skelliemancer/meatgrinder, but also compared to an Assassin, who has a
nice Shadow Master to complement the merc. Two tanks are great.

:( 

Let's hope they release a patch 1.11c, to let the Valk be cast on a merc.

Ciao,

Patrick.

So equip Peace, get the valk, move the armor to your merc, and see if it
stays.

Nice idea, but Peace's mods are:

4% Chance To Cast Level 5 Slow Missiles When Struck
2% Chance To Cast level 15 Valkyrie On Striking
+2 To Amazon Skill Levels
+20% Faster Hit Recovery
+2 To Critical Strike
Cold Resist +30%
Attacker Takes Damage of 14

Not so bad if you're a melee type, and temporarily swap out your regular
armor for your Merc's Peace, but I was thinking of using this with a more
fragile Sorceress or something.

And I wouldn't want to start wacking monsters in Hell, even in Act I, Cold
Plains, with a sorc wearing Peace, hoping the 2% CtC Valk goes off. :) 

The nice thing of putting this on a merc would be that he woud
occasionally re-cast the Valk, so it get's 'refreshed'.

Anyway, anyone try this, because I don't have a Shael yet. (I'm poor, very
poor on this ladder still...)

Regards,

Patrick.

I've tried something similar to this. I never took off the armor but
used it on different melee chars. The valk for some reason would just
disappear after a couple minutes or so. Sometimes it doesn't even last
longer than a minute. I've tried it on different days, times, and
characters and all had the same thing happen. The valk just
disappeared without being hit or killed. It pissed me off so much that
I HELed the armor and put in treachery instead.

This experiment was a few days ago before this newest patch so things
may have changed. I don't have another 3 socket armor so I haven't
re-experimented. If I get a chance later tonight, I will go shopping
for a breast plate and try it again.
