Untold Fact About Modding

  • Mephisto Tamer
    4 of the 5 monster packs in the Throne of Destuction were changed to Andariel, Duriel, Mephisto and Diablo in ES 3.00.
    The
    2001
    se act bosses were given some minions in patch N. But it proved Mephisto can't be spawned with minions due to the restriction of D2. Mephisto uses some special animation and if spawned with any minions, he turns invisible.
    This seemed a serious problem, but the solution was easy. Giving him a boss, instead of minions. :)
  • Phantom Hatchets
    This skill is the throwing weapon version of Multiple Shot. But some part of Multiple Shot is hard-coded. If the missile is an arrow, it displays missile A (arrow) and if the missile isn't an arrow it displays missile B (bolt).
    You can assign another missile animation to missile A and missile B. But none of throwing weapons is an arrow, so this skill always displays missile B. There are three kinds of throwing weapon, Javelins, Throwing Axes and Throwing Knives. But the skill can display only one kind of missile.
    Now you can guess why all throwing weapons must be "magically converted into hatchets".

Origins of Sets

    Autolycus is a renowned thief in Greek mythology. He was one of the members of the Argonauts.
  • Achilles' Advantage
    Achilles is the greatest hero of the Trojan War in Greek mythology. When he was born, his mother dipped him in the river Styx to make him immortal. But she forgot to wet the heel she held him by, leaving him vulnerable at that spot. Achilles was killed by an arrow to the heel. Since then Achilles's heel has meant one's weak point, and this is why Achilles' Heel set boots have a negative Lighining Resist.
