You can make 1 unique jewel from 49 magic jewels/7 rare jewels with the Ancient Scroll #30. I'd also suggest saving all low level unique rings and amulets as you can make a rare jewel for each 3 uniques with Ancient Scroll #29.

I'm not 100% sure but I think that ghost cows can drop all the unique jewels on nightmare difficulty. In that case ghost cows would probably be the best source from them since you will also collect a bunch of magic/rare jewels from there.

It is also possible to reroll the unique jewels to another type of unique jewels. In the longer run that does not really make sense as the recipe is rather expensive for each roll but with the first few unique jewels it can be a big help. (Unique Jewel + 2x Perfect Gems + Key => Unique Jewel of random type. If you dont add the stack of keys the recipe will just reroll the stats of the jewel.)

I once figured out the exact level required for some of Skill Masters items for my friend who was trying to find a Teleport helm from vendors. However I've forgotten how it went and just remember that my first guess was wrong (he did a lot of running between the wp and vendor for nothing... which was pretty embarrassing for me lol)

Battle Orders of Skillmaster -suffix has level of 56. I'll leave it for you to find out how the quality level (qlvl) of the base item and item level (ilvl) have effect on the possible affixes.

of Skillmaster affixes are fairly high level so there is not many affixes that are of higher level. Basically a higher level only allows some other skillmaster suffixes and some aurora suffixes. I wouldn't worry too much about trying to find it with a character that is exactly at the ideal level.

Extract Devil's Food from the Rerolling Orb and sell it to some npc. The first unique monster you will find will turn into Diablo Clone after that. The first waypoint in act 5 is pretty good as the bossmonsterpack is always right next to the waypoint.

Call to Arms should be exactly the same in ES. ( http://esdb.d2se.org/es3runew_n.htm )

Careful though - Uberdia packs a hefty punch and will destroy you easily if you aren't at least able to do some highlvl areas

well I tried shopping with lvl 51, 56, 61, 66 and 93 lvl chars ... none of which ever spawned a BO spear ... so far I tried for like 3h ... :-/

i want to farm hell. so how much resistance resistance should i least get to survive hell difficulty? i got 260 on the lowest element. most are 300 to 400 plus.

also, i've been thinking about adding poison damage to augment my physical damage.

I would say that depends on the char. Some chars (amazon) can easily get by with 20-30 positive or even negative resists as they tend to be far away.

Other chars, especially melee should strive for 75 all (psn doesnt matter too much) - if you can also get +x to maxres it's even better.

However high life shouldn't be forgotten, especially against foes you can't leech off this may spell a quick demise otherwise.

If u're an assassin venom is pretty neat, but needs a real focus in synergies to be worthwhile. Iaigiri is usually the better choice for non elemental chars to quickly decimate unbreakable phys immunities

will do if i get to finish hell.

atm, i'm crafting ring/amulets. which has a better chance of getting +8 to amplify damage, amulet or ring? i got a decrepify and teleport with rings but no amp dmg last night. tried earlier with amulets but nothing came up.

to craft tose items with Oskill Amp you would have to do some math...I forgot how it goes but am sure there are topics in which it was discussed as Oskill Amp has a max Ilvl on which it spawns,i don't remember if it was 49 or 59,and as with crafting you get a 75% Ilvl item of the original you get the point,better roll rares for thet,but decrep is more usefull to have as a Oskill...

god damn i gotta reinstall this game...check out the Craftmania thread,it will give you some idea what can be gotten thru crafting and i have been saying for years here thet crafts are the best gear in ES...

EDIT?
GogoDanny - you can get BO javs in Nightmare as soon as your char is above clvl 50...i think...so much time passed from my last shopping spree i forgotten...

tbh what's most important in ES is a fast clearspeed. Make sure to farm an area with huge density (lost farm is a good example) and just annihilate enemies asap. Packs have the best chance of dropping worthwhile items.

I prefer areas like the 3 Gatelevels of Act5, bloodravens workshop, darkmagicians chamber ... they're quick to clear, have decent density and you dont need hours. Also many monsters there have multidrops and may also drop a jackpot. :-)

2 Scrolls + Randomise Stone(Chipped Skull +Key) = New Scroll

Use Scrolls from 1 - 21 and 22 - 50 combinations as those are two recepis for low level Scroll or High Level Scroll...

Decals go the same as Runes...

Edit: What skills do you use??? Do you have Death Sentry?Even as a 1 point wonder that skill is worth it.Cut down a couple of cows,throw 2 or 3 Death Sentrys and enjoy the show...

Lucifer666: thanks for the recipe. just got my +7 amp dmg oskill ring :cool:. dragon blade most of the time, iaigiri for really tough monsters. i haven't got a point in now, but i'm considering getting a point or 2 there later. my sin is lvl 91 now, should I go defensive or offensive? my hp is still around 4k and I do /players 8 most of the time.

Hi Niklaas,

which way you prefer depends totally on your killspeed.
If you manage to mow down enemies quickly it's better to strive for more offense, Cuz the deader the enemies, the less damage to you. .-D

Personally I would opt to go full offense on an Assassin as they are so quick, versatile and mobile as well as have plenty of tricks to survive.

My Assassin is lvl 63 (1,100 hp) by now dealing 19k dmg per hit with dragonblade, iaigiri does 24k. All that with Motoko base upped and Planets Veneration Set. So far I rape all of NM on /players8 with easy, only actbosses take a tad longer. I recently learned I should invest a point in Mindblast as my Masters don't use that spell at all and the Stun should work nicely vs bigger groups.

*edit* just hit 92 and got secret scroll 50, so I may not post here for a week or 2.

*edit* how can I break the 900% ED cap? i've seen some eth weapon crafts that go beyond 1000% ED. thanks

those would be rares with Dual Max mods,or Runeword items that can get more...but i dare say that with one char in hell you should maybe have accumulated about 20 or 30 maples,to think about breaking the cap you would need a REALLY long time to do runs of Uber D...

Duping is looked down upon here...

Edit: For example i have about 20 characters above clvl 90,i have accumulated about 500 maples for several years of playing,and that is not nearly enough to max anything,well maybe one stat,but no more...get it???
