"I'll leave the flaming for the above post to somebody else."

Be afraid, be VERY afraid.

Ok, now seriously my best find would be lots and lots of blues so my Naked Mage doesn't have to buy any. Unfortunately buying blues is NOT tax deductable.

Impossible. Strange is qlvl 60 and can only be bought at Wirt. Also, "Of Speed" is not a valid suffix for that preffix.

Except in pure mathematics, nothing is known for certain (although much is certainly false).

Like I said, it was awhile ago. I don't have a terribly good memory. Sorry about my foolish mistake.

Stormshield:
Grrrr....



The Soulstone?

Didn't know how widely revealed that should be as the Readme just says "replaced with something...."

"The enchantment types it generates are probably anything that can appear on helms, with the qlvl determined by dlvlx2 (dlvl on which it was found). Anyway, its purpose is just a goof, but if you collect all of the Crypt novelty items . . ."

So, its supposed to get enchants??



Found Deadly Hunter (you must have 'adjusted' the qlvl as I found it in normChurch), and to answer the HFF Readme: 2 non-working enchantments.
Found it with my Rouge Rogue, thought it would be Fleshstinger or FlameDart or whatever, here it's actually (kinda) useful. Certain enchants not-withstanding.

If you spliced in the "of the Jester's" suffix than it would be 3, and with Jester's it would have the highest THEORETICAL damage output of any weapon in existance...

Also found The Deflector!

The item not on my list that I've been looking for for a while is a set of Gold Jewlery of the Heaven (altough one would make me quite happy already :) ) to use with my LAW. Ok, I'm not saying my KSoH isn't satistying me, but I've been wanting to use that damned CC for a while, those BK's won't know what hit 'em!!

That's quite a find! Restores my faith in a loving Murphy.

Yee, do you remember where it dropped and what dropped it?

I still cherish Sabra's Awesome Full Plate of Harmony, not because it's any big thing, but because of how unbelievably long it took to find it.

Sabra, the Celestial Bow was droped by a regular monster on level 2 in a hell game. I was using chain lightning so I can't tell exactly which monster droped it, only know that it was not a unique monster.

A good player will still manage with low-end equipment. :)

If you haven't already seen it, read "The Bare Necessites" by Armin, that column is pretty right on with what each class needs to be playable.

Oh, and don't give up! You're bound to find some better stuff if you play lots! :D

man, now I'm tempted to fire up my old old hard drive, lol.....

Really, the best sword I found but couldn't use was a

Kings Great Sword of Haste. ;)

I also had a Kings Bastard Sword of Haste and a Kings Broad Sword of Haste. The broad sword version dealt more damage so I used it.

I also had a Kings Dagger of Haste, heh heh.

Every character I used had a Royal Circlet. I'd used many other helms over the years, but I always seemed to come back to the Royal Circlet.

My Mage usually bore a DreamFlange unless I was in Hell/Hell. At that point, I would often switch blades.

Jewelry was a favourite collectable for me. The best find I ever recieved was an obsidian of the zodiac. I found it playing solo. Most of what I found were items a little less in quality. But, with a lvl 48 Warrior, 49 Sorcerer, and a whole bunch of mid 40's characters, you know I found a lot.

The armor for my melee character was an awesome fullplate of the stars. I honestly can't remember whether I finished my last game with that plate or another one equiped, though.

I had many shields over my time playing. But, I usually went back to the Stormshield.

Right now, I'm not concerned with items. I'm currently working through the spellbook so that my Sorc has enough occult magery to put a hole in the planet.

But undoubtably my most fond find was an Immolator. Not because it's a good staff (It isn't), and not because I really needed it (I didn't), but because at that time I was playing a BAR character, and had bragged in channel that he could find a unique item every game. Someone took me up on that, and I had to slog all the way down to Leoric before that popped, saving my ass.

When beset by doubt,
Run in little circles,
Wave your arms and shout.

A Jagged Bow of the Bear. It was probably the first weapon my rogue found that stayed with her throughout the game. It wasn't that great in terms of damage, but it knocked Diablo all over the screen, which is rather what I wanted.

Greetings Kali Magdalene and all fellow lurkers,

I just found Windforce in Hellfire yesterday, Sir Gorash (was that his name?) dropped it for my lvl 38 monk Bemn-Zaridaral in lvl 16 / hell.
What's good about it? Well, I've always been fond of that bow, my first rogue used to have one and dude - I loved it.
Because this is hellfire I'm playing, I can use the 'Cornerstone Of The World' effect and give it to my beloved new lvl 12 rogue. Will be great fun.

How does it say? 'And in the year of the golden light, it was so decreed that a great cathedral be raised...'


PS: Lachdanan was the Captain of King Leorics Knights. Not guards, and not leader, leutenant or sth. else. Just to clarify it, for I 've heard different opinions even here at the lurkerlounge. I heard Lachdanans speech just yesterday and it IS definitely 'captain of knights'.

EDIT: Lachdanan info referring to:

"6. Lachdanan is/was:
c. The Captain of the Guards"
- solution to his own quiz, provided by Attika, in October of this year, I think
EDIT end.


PPS: Glad to see that the lounge is back!

It's literally been years since I've played the game looking for normal items (since I have only played BNR the last couple years) but I'll try to remember some of the good stuff.

I found a 34/20 Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac back in Feb or March '97. It was on a cheated character so I ended up throwing that one away.
I've found plenty of other nice jewels (which I can't remember now) but that was probably the top find.

My Useless Bow of swiftness is one of my favorite finds. I forget which one of my characters found that, but I definitely would have used it if I could find enough hidden shrines for it.

My first purist character (a rogue... 90% of my characters are rogues) found a king's bastard sword of speed, 175/96. This would normally be a great find but Stu(Pure) usually did hell runs and it's only useful against dogs in hell thanks to Civerb's Cudgel.

Speaking of CC's, I've found dozens of them. The best has to be the time I've found one in the 2nd barrel to the left of the stairs on dlvl 1. I've had games where I've found two (non game-duped) CCs too but I've never found one for Stu(BNR).

I'm sure I have plenty more item stories but those are the only interesting ones that I can remember.

Umm, correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't BNRs (Beyond Naked Rogue) only supposed to use cursed equipment (I think the variant guidelines suggest using a non-cursed bow)? So a BNR would have no use for a CC, right?

The guidelines said non-cursed weapon. I haven't read the guidelines in a while, but I'm pretty sure I remember checking with the wording to see if a CC was ok.
