Ancient Decipherer

A cubing material to decipher (identify) an Ancient Scroll. Also called Decipherer or AD. 8 Ancient Decipherers makes a Dragon Stone. (Say a dime if a Dragon Stone is a dollar.) Ancient Decipherers are also often used in cheap cube recipes.

Ancient Scroll

A cubing Material used for Secret Recipes. There exist 50 Secret Recipes and 50 Ancient Scrolls, and each recipe requires corresponding scroll. Ancient Scrolls need to be deciphererd before using. (See Ancient Decipherer.)
You need to cube the scroll, but it's refunded after cubing, so you need only one scroll of each number. You can reroll a new scroll from the redundant scrolls. You can also save the redundant ones for trading or convert them into a Dragon Stone.

Anvil Stone

Anvil Stones are cubing materials used for Forging. They are made from "4 Dragon Stones + 1 Perfect Gem", and never dropped by monsters.

Aura Stone

Aura Stones are cubing materials used for Aura Forging. Aura Forging adds an aura to an amulet. There exist 7 kinds of Aura Stones, which are made from the highest Unique Class Amulets of 7 classes.

Automod

Automods are the new feature added in D2 Expansion. Similar to staffmods, but adds other properties than individual skill bonus. The all resist bonus on Paladin shields and the bow skilltab bonus on Amazon bows are the automods, for example. Unique items and set items can't have automods.

Cast Delay

Some spells can't be cast for a specific period after you cast that spell. This is a restriction to prohibit spamming that spell, mainly to avoid the graphic lag. Also known as Casting Deley, Cast Timer, Spell Timer, etc. See also Next Delay.

Some times it seems you can cast these skills without delay, two meteors in a row, for example. But one of them is a fake which is displayed only at the client side, and has no actual effect.

In ES, Cast Delays are generally eased. But when you play multiplayer games, please keep it in mind that these skills may cause a heavy lag for other players.

Crystal

Crystals are new items that are used to cube Uber Organs and Kanji Runes. They are found in Ores which serve as a container for them. Crystals are extracted by cubing the ore with itself. More information here.

Crystal Can

The Crystal Can is one of the stockers, which can be purchased from Gheed. It stores crystals and keeps them organized. Crystals are stored as a number of points and may be extracted in chipped quality (1 point) and normal quality (100 points) by using the Can Opener (also available from Gheed).
