What's really good!?! I'm still trying to get into the beta. trying new contest everyday and I still got nodda. So to past by the time, other then work and training, i've been playing Diablo 2: LOD. I made a new guy and everything is going great. Even after 11 years this game is still loads of fun and I swear the hours just fly by. But here is the kicker. I made it to Act 2 without using any Stat Point. I died afew times, but I had a blast getting it done. But I fear I may need to start using them. This S^8! is getting hard!!!
You get a respec now with each difficulty, and you can also make tokens to reset stats - so its not too big of a deal anymore just use them for leveling and once you get to more endgame and know what you want to build out fore sure respec and build appropriately.
Update on where I'm at now. Ended up using my stats darn monsters were just killing. Once I usd them, i made quick work out of my foes, picked up some pretty beast loot. Haven't died since stat use, now I'm in Act 3 about to reck some cats in the swamp.
Killed Baal!!! Almost died at the end but its hard to kill a guy with Powers in his name. So I made it through the game with about 3 deaths. Not too bad, beat it within a 2 day spand. But sadly I still have no luck with getting into the beta So with that being said, off to nightmare.
I don't see hown it's possible to have a +32 Resist All. (Trust me, Guy, I'm trying to support you but it's difficult to find out how.) The defense bonus fits the stout prefix, but I don't know if there's a hidden game mechanic somewhere that explains this. Are you playing, unmodded?
I could see it happening if it could stack the prefix with the suffix.
An example of this stacking would be with a personal favorite of mine.
Pestilent Small Charm of Anthrax
Pestilent = +175 Poison Damage Over 6 Seconds
Anthrax = +50 Poison Damage Over 6 Seconds
This charm could have a lot more than +225 over 6 seconds due to the two related words. Trying to find the maths to better explain this.
EDIT : Nevermind, the stacking thing only works with poison. The link will explain.
