Re: Ask the Experts

The Sorc elemental masteries: What does "+55% extra mastery for every base point" mean? So far every point into it only improves my +Lit Skill Damage by 4%. Whats stopping me from investing into a synergy with more than +4% to the skill I use? You get an extra 55% lit/fire/cold skill damage if ther...

Re: Diablo 2 LOD, v1.12, PlugY & Windows 8.1

Is it just me or do you also think that there are too many "current" versions of Eastern Sun? We have the 4.1N community patch, the original R6E by tsuru, the 1.12 version by stabby and even a D2SE plugin. Is there any chance that we will return to one single version in the future? I have like 3 ins...

Re: auras on equip

Equipping two items with the same aura on equip will stack, meaning that their levels will be added. Having too many different auras at the same time will cause other nearby players to crash. If you use an aura yourself and wear an item with the same aura on equip they will not stack, you will have ...

Re: auras on equip

Auras on Equip profit from Synergies, this also works for mercs. Holy Freeze is a bad example because its level is, as Lucifer666 already pointed out, much too low.

Concentration and Annihilation can profit from Might on Act 2 mercs, which adds a nice bonus.

Re: can't equip armor?

Let me guess: The Armor you were wearing had +x to Strength on it, exaclty 20 more than the one you were trying to equip. This is a normal behavior and not specific to Eastern Sun. Whenever you are trying to replace a piece of Armor it will fail if changing the gear will lower your stats below the r...

Re: CraftMania!!!

I didn't do much crafting and those that I did usually were not good enough to wear unless for levelling. I never wore a crafted item on any of my characters after about level 80. Nothing worth keeping, let alone worth wearing. I can't even begin to imagine how many materials you use for crafting, s...

Re: Ask the Experts

Your CD is "too new" for 1.10 to work.

I remember there being some mini CD ISO which you could mount to imitate the correct LoD CD. I never needed it though so someone else might know more about it.

Re: Ask the Experts

Frankly, I have no idea what's wrong. Either you have a version of Diablo 2 which is simply incompatible with the mod or you are doing something wrong and we can't figure out what it is. I'm currently uploading a file which contains a working installation of Diablo 2 - LoD along with Eastern Sun 4.1...

Re: Ask the Experts

A great trick to conserve older versions is to backup every file in the D2 folder except for the really big .mpq files. If you want to change the versions, just copy the files and overwrite the others. This also makes sure that you can restore a clean installation, just delete everything except for ...

Re: Loading up in full screen question.

Whenever I have that problem it's either a problem with the graphics driver (rarely) or just the wrong graphics mode. Try changing between DirectDraw, Direct3D and 3Dfx to see if it helps, normally it solves the problem.

Looks like you did something wrong when installing. Did you leave the \es300s in place when installing the mod? Are you starting it via the launcher instead of the normal .exe?

Looks like a bot. The profile contains a web link to an mmo. The bot sees a forum post with "mmo" in it, registers and adds a harmless answer like "I don't know why I didn't try that. thx". I'll report it as spam, let's see what happens.

Re: New mana concept - Please give me your thoughts

I agree that the current system is kind of broken. My first character always struggles to keep his or her mana up and I end up drinking way more potions than I can find, let alone afford.
