Very nice i must say :) .... I really like that many items have negative bonuses aswell as good... Makes people actually think about what items they wear instead of just thinking: "My friend says that XXXX is the best, so i'll use it"
With negative bonuses, there are not always ONE best item, the "best" varies from build to build... :)

(I'm using the same "system") :)

All Resistances increased by -75. What an increase. :mrgreen:

The uniques looks nice,

As pmpch write you need to look at the wording off negative effects.

As example Dryhten Elador

Physical Damage taken increased by -100%
Decreased Maximum durability by -75%

A suggestion
-75% to Maximum durability

A better wording for physical damage I have no good suggestion at the moment.

Attacker takes damage of 50% - attacker takes 50% of damage done to player?

Other: -50% penalty to all atributes. Maybe it will be better: 50% penalty to all atributes or -50% to all atributes.

Amulet of Warding: All resistances increased by 40. Patch it to 40% ;)

Nemesis ring: Decrease maximum mana -15% - shouldn't be: Decrease maximum mana by 15% or -15% to maximum mana amount or something else :P

The Silent Judge: Damage -15... Should be -15 to damage or damage decreased by 15

There exists more bugs, which should be patched in final beta ;)

8-O 8-O

This is just crazy stuff! I like it! a lot. -50% to all attributes and +75% elemental damage... YEAH!
sorry, I'm just going crazy for nothing.... just a game... just a game.... I have to keep telling myself. But this has to be the greatest thing that's happend to Diablo since the original release. I've been looking at this mod since the start, but those items really convinced me. (okay, so I'm an item-junkie, shoot me)

some remarks though, my trained exploiter-eye sees yummy things, and most developers would consider that a bad thing. I can't really judge until I can try this mod, but thing like "blinds attacker" or massive increased elemental damage seem to have some serieus unbalancing powers to me, but ofcourse I can't see the whole picture, so I hope I'm wrong (no, in fact I hope I'm right :twisted: )

anyway... great stuff!

That would require, like, communication between me and Joel. Eek. :twisted:

There is also the problem of people going to misunderstand 'physical damage taken reduced by -100%' as 'I'm going to be immune to physical' and then die and complain about it. The word 'increased' tells them there's something wrong. :D

See my signature, btw. :p

Wasn't that bleeding obvious?

Newsflash: it read all resistances +40 in regular LoD. Removed the plus sign and added 'increased by' because it can also go negative and all resistances +-40 looks dumb.

Regular LoD modifier. Check your Astreon's. :p

Jewels can have +4% to one element as prefix and as suffix, and you may get a stacking one. Giving +8% to one element. Uniques still overpowered?

'Blinds attacker' is the lowest type of effect-thorns. :p It is not very useful to blind stuff you are right next to, unless you can break their target lock or take another hit. :) 'Slow attacker' is usually better, but try and get it on something useful. 'Attacker flees' is even better, which is why the percentages are so low. And the almighty 'Turns attacker to stone' only appears on a set that requires you to equip an otherwise worthless armor and shield with 120 str req. :D

Horror,

I know its not easy to make the text perfect. There is a - that destroys everything. The game isn't done to handle negative numbers in display on correct way.

But, it's worth to think about what way you confuse the players less in, since there will always be questions anyway (whatever you choose to do) :)

The new screenshots looks nice :)

Ok I understand now. So these + and - etc. aren't strings, yeah?
