**My Profile [#peff1898]
I started D2 as early as 1.00 patch but to be honest the first times I played it more serioysly were at 1.10+ era. At some point I tried Eastern sun thanks to a friend of mine. I fell in love with the mod and thought that I would never return to LoD.

However I was a fool back then and I used to cheat every now and then with the game a little. Out of gold and still want some unique item? Just cheat some gold and gamble it. I didn't do any very big cheats unless doing some infinite rerolling with some uniques by using the read only tag on save files counts as one. In the end I got bored with the game and returned to LoD.

I played few ladders on b.net. After that I was fed up with bots that advertised some item shops and the endless grinding with bots that ran diablo and baal 24/7 and decided to stick with Single Player. That was lots of fun but when I was doing the 200th (or insert any "big" number) Diarun with my cheaply done hammerdin I remembered Eastern Sun and returned to it. I still have my old save files somewhere secured but I decided to start from fresh so I could say that everything is 100% legal.

My favourite class has always been Amazon so I created one. I though of making Dance of Death her main skill but at the end of NM I decided to drop that idea and stick with good old Strafe. I may make another amazon at some point but until I truly have a godly Strafer at my hands I won't be focusing on other characters too much.

***ISO: [#x6adddf4]
Materials:
- Steaks, up to 30 (I pay 8 Ancient Decipherer points for each)

Ring with +x to Teleport with decent / great additional mods for a Strafer
- I have one but I'm still interested in improving it a bit.
- Great mods: +1 All Skills, +x Amazon Skills, +x Passive & Magic Skills, Life, All resists

Ring with 6% CtC lvl 5 Amplify Damage on Striking
- Needs decent sidemods. Can have the lower quality Amplify Damage proc mod (5% lvl 4) IF the other mods are great.
- Great mods: +1 All Skills, +x Amazon Skills, +x Passive & Magic Skills, Life, All resists

Amulet with 6% CtC lvl 5 Amplify Damage on Striking
- Needs decent sidemods. Can have the lower quality Amplify Damage proc mod (5% lvl 4) IF the other mods are great.
- Great mods: +1 All Skills, +x Amazon Skills, +x Passive & Magic Skills, Life, All resists

2x Jeweler's Titania Crown of Aurora/Valkyrie's Titania Crown of Aurora/Athletic Titania Crown of Aurora
- Needs one of the following auras: lvl 10+ Defiance, lvl 10+ Cleansing, lvl 9 Vigor
- If it has Jeweler's prefix it must give 4 gemsockets
- Valkyrie's or Athletic give +3 Amazon Skills or +3 Passive & Magic Skills
- I need two helms and one armor with separate auras. If I get one of the items I'm looking for then the field of allowed auras gets slimmer (because I don't want duplicates).
- Titania Crowns are preferred because of the low strength requirement and the possibility of staffmods.
- Titania Crowns can be shopped from Drognan in act 2.

Jeweler's Archmage Robe of Aurora
- Needs one of the following auras: lvl 10+ Defiance, lvl 10+ Cleansing, lvl 9 Vigor
- It can have up to 6 gemsockets but due to their rarity I'm interested in 4 or 5 gem socket versions as well.
- I need two helms and one armor with separate auras. If I get one of the items I'm looking for then the field of allowed auras gets slimmer (because duplicates do not stack as far as I know).
- Archmage Robes are preferred because of the low strength requirement. Other alternatives that can have 6 sockets are: Dragon Scale, Plated Cuirass and Ceremonial Armor.
- Archmage Robes can be shopped from Drognan in act 2.
- Staffmods (from Archmage Robes) do not matter as the item goes to an Amazon.

Amazon Passive & Magic tree SQUARE Charm skillers
- With or without suffix.
- I want enough of these to fill my inventory.
- Currently have: 6

Jewels
- [Unique] Nexus Star: 3
- [Unique] Icestorm Shard: 7+ (7 for strafer, more will be reserved for a frostmaiden so I could use a lot of them at some point)
- [Magic] Knowledgeable Jewel (+1 All Skills. These will be on my ultimate final end game gear so naturally I'm interested in getting as many as possible. However I'm not giving these too much priority so I'm not that much into paying a lot for them. For example in the end I would fill my mercenary with these and my weapon swap for higher level Battle Orders and Enchant.)

Jewels (magic / rare / unique)
Tell me what you're looking for and I'll tell you if I have anything like that. I'm aware that I can reroll all the unique jewels with 2 Perfect Gems but that is a bit costly when someone might be willing to trade his/her Icestorm Shards for other jewels.
