Blackduck's Diary


My Profile

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.

Magic/Rare Ring with 6% CtC lvl 5 Amplify Damage on Striking

  • Great additional mods: +1 All Skills, +x Amazon Skills, +x Passive & Magic Skills, Life, Strength, Dexterity

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.
