Did you know that you can get a full rejuv by transmogrifying every little
rejuv? The recipe isn't 3 for 1, it's 1 for 1. WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Oh, God, do *not* tell me that. The Druid got a full page of full
rejuvs just cubing them 3 to 1. You might try cubing a rune or two,
too, you may get the next rune, if I'm reading the readme correctly.

BTW, the Druid found a couple of hearts, which I *could* right-click
to get the Zods, but since neither of them is *near* being able to use
them yet, I figure I'll wait. And Art was right about the price on
those souls, 7.5 million is absolutely *ridiculous* for something that
only sells for 1390 after you change it into an egg ;-)

Yes dear. I hope by now you've tried the rejuv thingy. I found it
quite by accident myself. I had been cubing them 3-1 and I accidentally
hit the tranmogger (don't mind me, I make up my own words as I go along,
kinda like Archie Bunker) and I got a full rejuv. Boy, was I surprised.
So, now I've got a whole page of full rejuvs and quite frankly, since I
carry my cube with me, and I'm always picking up rejuvs along the way
with my Find Potion (when necessary), I don't see the point in
collecting reds and blues anymore, unless I'm missing something. Also,
I found some Oil Potion in Kurast Bazaar. I managed to get myself to
the Bazaar and marked my WP. So, all my WP's up to that point are
marked and tomorrow is another day.

I feel like I'm moving at a really fast clip here. So far, the gang is
just beating up the bad guys like crazy and when one dies, I can
resurrect him, so, as I've heard the necro is the easiest build in the
game, I truly believe that. I'm sure it will get harder in NM and
especially Hell, but maybe this will be the guy I can bring to Hell
level. Never have brought anyone into hell before (except my ex-
husband, the idiotstick, and I hope he stays there and rots) LMAO.

Nite for now. Enjoy your game. Let me know when you beat Dariel and
get to Lut Gulein.

And btw, as regards the runes, I have cubed some of them, but I'm really
getting a lot of good ones. I have about 10 Zods, some Bers, Hels,
Sols, can't remember most of them. This old brain doesn't work well
under the best of circumstances, let alone when it's tired. But, I have
a bunch of them , Lem, Um, Name some and I'll tell you if I have it.
Some of them you can't cube. I already tried. But, those that can be
cubed, I've cubed.

There *are* advantages to the reds and blues, especially the higher
ones. The constant refill (when it more than fills up your ball) can
come in handy. For instance, when my Druid drinks a light or regular
mana potion, he can usually get in an extra wolf or two while the ball
is filling up before it actually starts taking away from what he ends
up with, if that makes sense. I'm using this *much* more in Nez, where
my Bowazon has Raise Skeletons (from souls, which can be worn in the
ring slot in that one) that she can only cast one before needing to
drink a potion. She can usually get away with drinking only one mana
potion and re-raising her entire army of four.

Andy first, but I will ;-) And yeah, the skellimancer is definitely
the way to go now. My level 91 was *cruising* along in Hell, at least
until 1.10 came out. Then he started struggling, but that's 'cause he
wasn't built for the different game that 1.10 is (especially in Hell,
and especially for skellimancers). But he's been rebuilt a couple of
times, and I *will* get there again with one of them ;-)

Cubed just by themselves, or with 3 of them? 3 should work up to Thul,
IIRC, then you need to start adding gems. See here:
http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/cube.shtml . But it *looks*
like in CE, cubing one by itself either gives you the next or the last
rune, I keep forgetting to try it myself.

I've been saving the Greater Healings and Greater Manas in my stash, so
I'm getting a nice stock of them. But, the rejuv restores health and
mana so much faster than both of them. When I give him a health potion,
I watch the ball fill up slowly, but when I give him a rejuv, even a
small one although there's no reason to give him a small one anymore
when you can cube every small bottle into a full rejuv, but in any case,
when he gets a rejuv, the ball fills up completely instantly, whereas
with the health potion, the ball will fill up halfway or 3/4. That's
why I feel like the rejuvs are better than the reds and blues.

That's right. I did forget it's Andy first. You'll get there. I got
to clvl30 before I badly needed sleep at 3AM. I got my revive, so that
will help me out later in the game.

OK, here again, like with the gems, we can cube by itself. Hmmm, I
didn't know that. I'll give it a try. Yeah, I think it's up to Thul,
which is why I wound up with about 25 Thuls already. What I need to do
now is check all the cubing information and find out what I can do with
these things, and the gems, to make better stuff. In all the years I've
been playing the game, I've never bothered with any of that, which
probably explains why I've never gotten further than clvl53 NM. So, my
hope is that I'll make it to hell this time.

Diane, ald was trying to say that in certain circumstances the blue was
better _because_ it goes slower, it goes like this:
raise skellies & skelly mages until mana is depleted - drink blue potion -
raise the rest of your minions *while* it is filling and you could
conceivably use more mana points in 2 seconds than you actually have (max).
Otherwise, I go with you, I only carry full rejuvs in my belt, even with my
skellimancer, but for those special times (just starting for the night) when
you must raise your whole army, I have been known to actually *buy* a blue
potion to slurp, and this was even before CE hehe.
btw, the readme file for CE says that putting one rune in your cube and
hitting transmute will give you the next _lower_ rune, so if it gives you
the next _higher_ rune, please let us know since I treasure every rune I get
and don't want to experiment even tho I too have just about all of them
already from gambling and the eggs, including 7 or 8 zods and two hearts
(that could be zods) that I am saving for other cube recipes.
Heh, made my first runeword last night (Lore) - with a RARE circlet - dang
that is sweet, keeps all the original mods and adds the runeword mods
besides.

Oh, and, hello to one and all here, sorry I did not find this group sooner,
I have been @ agd2 for awhile and had originally thought that this group was
for D1, silly me never even checked it until Diane and Ald mentioned it over
there.

Ah, ok. I got it now. Oddly enough, when I'm raising my skellies and
mages, my mana doesn't appear to be rushing out. I must have enough +pts
to mana that it's holding me in check.

OK, I'll test it out. I have enough Thuls that I can afford to
sacrifice one. If it does, in fact lower the value of the rune, than a
Thul should go down one lower. If the readme is wrong and the runes go
one higher, then nothing will happen to the Thul b/c I don't think you
can increase a Thul. But, I'll try a few things and let you know.

Congrats on the Lore circlet. Wow. I still need to work on that entire
concept. I've never worked with runewords and I really don't have a
clue what to do about that.

Also, I'm glad you found your way here. CE is really a great mod and
I'm enjoying it. It's made my entire Diablo experience greater than it
was before. And, it's fun to be working with you and ald coming up with
all the nuances that aren't directly stated clearly (or that I don't
read somewhere.)

Yes, you can. 3 Thul's and one chipped topaz equal one Amn.
3 Amn's and one chipped amythest equal one.... err... Sol? I forget at the
moment, anyway, the regular cube recipes work, check the Arreat Summit for
the full list. I think it is tasred (topaz, amythest, sapphire, ruby,
emerald, and diamond), first chipped, then flawed, etc.
Oh, at pul and after, it is only 2 runes plus one gem to get the next
highest.

ok great. thanks for the info. i never think to put gems in with
runes. it's like algebra to me (letters and numbers) and I didn't like

http://www.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/runewords.shtml . Note that
*all* of these, including the latest "ladder only" ones, should be
available in CE (I asked in the forums ;-) ). And how far did you get
in NM at level 53? Getting *to* Hell shouldn't be that difficult, the
problem in 1.10 is getting *through* Hell ;-(

Try drinking one of those Greater (or Super, when you get them)
potions, especially a Mana one if you have base energy. The ball fills
up just as fast a full rejuv, and you can cast something as it's
filling and it *stays* full.

I'm not saying that they are always better than rejuvs, far from it,
and yeah, rejuvs are instant (just like the health and mana potions
were in the original Diablo), whereas the healing and mana potions
aren't. I'm just saying in certain situations there are advantages,
especially to the mana potions.

Conga Rats! Yeah, it should, as well as the other level 30 spells
(which I'm too tired ATM to recall, started my new job today and have
to be back at it in less than 6 hours).

Yeah, that's the way I read it, too, but I figured it *may* be a typo
or bad translation. I keep intending to try it with an Eld, since that
wouldn't be much of a loss, but keep forgetting :-(

Nice! That's one of my favorite runewords, except that I keep making
it for characters who haven't hit level 27 yet ;-)

Welcome to our madness, and don't feel bad, that's a common mistake.
I'd send you muffins, but IIRC I saw a post already tonight from the
Mad one, so they wouldn't make it through ;-(

Again, try raising them with a Bowazon (in Nez) with base mana. With
something like 8 to Raise Skelly (which is what I was *trying* to say
this morning, it didn't come out right though), she can only cast one
before she needs to drink a potion. I wait until there are 3 more
corpses on the ground, drink one regular mana potion (a light one will
allow her to raise her army, but leaves the mana ball less than full)
and can raise the other 3 and usually still have a full ball of mana.

Thanks. That's what I did tonight. Got me a nice shot of mana and then
cast my gang and didn't lose a thing. Hey, I got me through to Act IV.
I might go back to Act III tho, just to lvl up a bit, although I don't
seem to need it. Actually, for me, Mephisto was easy. Just that my
hand was getting tired. And I had to switch hands after a few minutes.
it took about 6 minutes of pounding my mouse until I got or should I say
WE got the deed done. By this time it was only me, my merc, and one
skelly.

Also, gotta check out the mercs in Act IV to see if I should make a
switch.

But, I'm really having fun with this CE. I'm doing a whole lot better
as a skellymancer than I EVER did at a barb. I think that must be b/c
I'm not much good at melee fighting. I tend to get right in the middle
of the gang and they smother me to death, instead of hanging on the
outside. That's where the necro is at an advantage cause I can hang
outside and let the gang get at them, and then I go in and lend a hand
when I think it's taking them too long, lol.

The revive was spooky. I didn't know that it called up the dead ones,
lol. But the jungle was where I had them going, and it was so dark I
could barely see them. This tends to be dark on this puter and I don't
know how to lighten it up. Anyway, I'm just starting Act IV. I'll be
in NM very soon.

Can't play tomorrow. :(  Gotta go to NYC for the day. So, I'll get
back to it on Sunday for sure.

Without having to go back somewhere and resurrect your army? Well
done! :-)

Bad news there, there aren't any. If you want my advice, don't try the
ones in Act 5 either. Well, actually, *I'd* stick with the Rogue all
the way (I almost always do), but the usual ones are in Act 2/NM.

Open up the options menu (top option when you hit escape, I think,
it's early and I didn't end up with much sleep). Look for video
options and the one that lets you adjust gamma and such. First one
(gamma, again I think) all the way up, second all the way down (might
be *too* bright, if so try just a little below half-way). If that
makes it darker, try the opposite and forgive me, I'm trying to type
this quickly as I get ready to leave for work ;-)

Yep, and not only that, but I only had to use one rejuv. I still had my
CBF and all my charms, so something helped, lol. As well as all my
army. They're great. I've got Skeleton Mastery up to 23 and Golem
Mastery up to 14, so I think that's helping. They're getting good and
strong.

OK. With my barb, I've stuck with the same rogue from the beginning.
I've only tried switching once, and as I'm accustomed to my merc using a
bow, I was stunned to find out that my new merc was using a spear, and
when I tried to equip him with a bow he told me he can't use it. So, I
wasn't thrilled. I seem to find great bows and I like the mercs using
bows. But, some people claim they have great success with the mercs
doing a lot of the battle when they switch their merc to Prayer, or Holy
whatever it is. I guess these mercs have auras or something. I haven't
dealt with any of them. But, I just thought I would give it a try.
However, since this gal is doing well and sticking with me, for the most
part, and leveling up well, I would hate to have to level up another
merc and then screw my game up. I have to think about this. As you can
tell, I'm still confused. I'll decide later today what to do.

I had the same problem with LOD at one point and I did mess around with
the gamma and such, those video options, but for one thing, it shrunk my
screen and then I had a mess of a time getting it back, and never really
did get it back to exactly where it was so I wasn't happy with it, and
although it lightens it up a bit, the colors are out of wack and the
picture was, err how to explain it, i guess too sharp. But it just was
difficult. So, either way, i couldn't get it the way i wanted it. Too
dark isn't good b/c i can barely see the map in the tunnels, but messing
around with the video was creating other problems, so you know what they
say about damned if you do....................

OK, today is not a Diablo day. I gotta go to NYC. Hopefully I can play
tonight, otherwise tomorrow is another day.
