Post by kingpin » Sat Jan 26, 2008 10:05 pm

Time for me to post a report. So, far a great improvement since I played early version :)


Balance:

Skills:
- Sweeping Strike: To high mana cost at Level 1 (cost 1/4 of total mana) compare to damage you give.

Items:
- Cracked Cudgel sells for 450 gold
- Of Madness (amulet) sells for 1053 gold


Bugs:
- early levels. Hireling cost 0 gold to ressurect.
- Put equip item over hireling image "eats" the item.
- Hireling description says: Cold Hireling. He uses normal shot, multiple shoot.
- Selection area over entrante to dungeon level2 is not cover complete stair (both up/down)


Suggestions:

Potions like healing, antidote, mana lack description what they do.

i think you cant spend the points yourself.

@topic:
i tried out a bit with some chars, but i like the blood wizard most.
lvl 14, act2 now, q1 done, 6 books found (all of them were from other char classes, so i got 3 wizard books after mixing them in the "cube") and 0 deaths.

Yes, but hits up to 3 targets, dealing that damage to each one of them ;)

I don't think there's a workaround, it was never intended by Blizzard to have the hireling at level 1.

To avoid it, just open the hireling's inventory and place the item into the slot.

Oh come on, you know why ;) Cold Arrow requires level 6, so once your Rogue levels up to that, she'll use it ;)

The Blood Wizard cannot increase Strength, Dexterity and Energy (not even from item bonuses). All stat points are auto-assigned to Vitality on level-up, I simply save you the effort of clicking 5 times ;) All his spells cost HP instead of mana.

Just a note on that, you will get 5 stat points as a reward to the Magic Roack quest in Act 3, but if you try to put a point on Strength, Dexterity or Energy, the point will be lost.

Once I update the website it will all become clear ;)

I did the test run of this version with a Blood Wizard, he's indeed a fun character to play.

another thing that i forgot to mention yesterday: did you disable /players8?
maybe its already in the manual and i just didnt see it, but when i tried to put in /players8, it just said "players set to 1".

so the blood wizard will never be able to use any armor? QQ

i think its a fair price, since he is (imo) a very powerfull char.
hes able to stack blaze and lure a boss through the flames to make some nice dmg (that was what i did to kill andy and the radament guy), he can blink, he has some nice high lvl spells (at least it looks like if they were nice), AND he got this great life regen passive, so you regenerate life you lost.
you designed him (and all the other stuff ive seen yet) really nice in my opinion, keep up the good work.

btw: the radament guy-skin looks awesome.

Hi,
I played a blood wizard till now (Butcher is dead) and it looks imho a bit overpowered, I just walk through the levels like I'd do in LoD, it's fairly easy. At butcher my merc ripped 3 times, but this was it. The poisened water supply is missing an automap entry for it's entry ;)

It becomes harder in the higher levels. You really need to start off with this character, find skills and so on, because later you wouldn't be able to proceed if you don't ;)

im sorry if the question doesnt fit here, but im running around in a2 now for nearly an hour already.
and no, im not looking for the jail, but for the tombs.
ive checked all the houses in a2 if there was a rollover text, ive already looked if it was somewhere in the jail, but still, i cant find it.
and the jerhyn-guy isnt anywhere too, strange.

btw: lvl 17, got 2 of the 3 notes (as you might know), and still everything is quite easy, since i keep finding/cubing blaze books (1 punisher book yet, and even on lvl 1 it works quite well for non-moving targets that cant be killed with blaze) and im running around with a +3 blaze staff. (i think blaze is lvl 7 atm)
hopefully running around with blaze on and stacking some flames will help vs duriel too.

@thank you very much for the really fast answer.

This isn't a BTH error, it's a problem with the TCP/IP protocol on your machine. I can imagine you cannot host TCP/IP games using vanilla D2 either. Do some research using Google.

EDIT: usu, the Tombs are located under Jail. Find the entarnce to them in one of the corners of Jail Level 3.

As for Blaze, you'll need a new damage skill soon. You won't be counting forever on it, trust me ;)

Socket error may be because the host block the ports d2 uses. I don't know if BTH use any custom ports aswell.

Great update, Onyx!

I just had a few questions.

You say Rogue mercs get immolation arrow, so does this mean they can only have it if they are a fire merc? If you get a cold merc do they fire both cold arrow/immolation arrow?

For the warrior, what does the framecount mean for missile(dance of death)? I'm not entirely sure on what this skill does, yet. I take it from the description it's basically like the vanilla barbs whirlwind, but you remain in one spot. Where do missiles come into play?

What do those moon/night clan horns do?

Of course it doesn't. I tried and creating a TCP/IP game works fine on my end.

Only the fire Rogue, and only on higher difficulties. Check the website, it's all there.

This was just a fix of wrong framecount causing errors in the D2 log.

sooo....
i killed duriel some hours ago with lvl 18, no problem at all, the flame stacking tactics still worked well.
i made some runs here and there to get to lvl 20, because i already had 1 blood golem, 1 sentinel and 2 stone curse books.
when i first tried out sentinel, the graphic was quite surprising to me.
i excepted some kind of flame-eye, but the blue flying eye looks a bit psychopathic, still nice, since it looks a bit scary, it fits to most dungeons (and to the wall of corpses i have around me quite often).

and ive seen my first "bug" so far (i dont know if it is just my pc, though).
i made a tp in the maggot lair like place where i got the magic stone thingie, when i entered town everything was ugly eyecancer purple-yellow.

and i have some questions:
what does the starfall animation look like? is it the usual fireball-in-all-directions?
are there lots of immunes in the higher difficulties?
im planning on killing most stuff with starfall (if i get some books..) and the immunes with sentinel (and lots of other skills of course), would that work out well?

Bugs
- Blunt (Two Handed Sword) lack stat.
- Doom Serpent (monk): Not sure if this is a bug or intended. But, the snakes is not show up as pet icon.


Suggestions
- Hireling leveling seems slow. My char Level 12, hireling level 6. If this keeps up my hireling will be level 50 then I'm level 99 :)

Starfall is Blood Stars in all directions and deals magic damage. And yes, there are immunes in higher difficulties.

It should have reduced min damage. Not sure why it isn't showing a string.

Intended. When I was testing the skill, the snakes seemed so random. I mean yes, you summon them and they will move generally in your direction, but they will still do what they want. For example, you fight with a certain monster, but the serpents decide to in the other direction ;) So I thought they aren't your pets, they have a mind of their own, that's why I removed their per icon. It also gives you that creepy "something is lurking out there" feeling :)

She should catch up at some point. I don't think I can do anything about it.

ive got another problem :oops:
yesterday, i got raped by some champions creatures in a4, blinking into a stunning champ mob wasnt very smart though.
soo...
when i tried to load the char again, so ill get my corpse back in a4 and ill get my revenge for this death, the load-thingie in the loading screen didnt fill up.
so after waiting 5 minutes i decided to alt+f4, than my pc f* up.
i tried again, but still it wont work.

im playing bth on a blank 1.10 install, i installed it right, no plugy, no *whatdoiknow* stuff, so if you think im a cheater/editor user/plugy user, your wrong.

it might be a bug with the new map, or maybe the game isnt able to display the blood wizards corpse right (its a blood wizard, if i havent mentioned it yet).

(im sorry for grammatical issues and bad explenations in this text, english isnt my mothertongue though. but i think your all able to understand this post.)

My guess is your character got corrupted in some way, not sure how. Care to post a log from the time when it happened?

I also died with a Blood Wizard during my test run, and I had no problem retrieving my body.

Here's something else you can try - make a new character and see if the game works with it. You can also try dying and trying to load it again, see if that works too.
