Gaming General / Re: So I fired up D2 again
« Last post by dave in the basement on Today at 07:17:55 PM »
I switched my merc for an Act 2 defensive merc.

I finally rescued the Horadric Cube and dispatched Duriel (after dying many many times!) and have made my way to act 3. I believe I'm level 20 or 21, and so far the only legendary or set item I have found is the Arctic Belt.

Runes have thankfully started appearing, and I look forward to hopefully making a runeword or two before too terribly long.

Is it  safe to assume that once you socket an item with something, there is no way to retrieve the gem/jewel/rune? I think so, but I'm not positive.

Onward!

More D3 weirdness. I encountered a goblin in a rift, started to bomb it with wave of light from my monk
but it just disappeared through a wall. The completion window said I killed it but it was no where to be found???
How odd.

hey, its that liquid guy, soiling our wall.  How are you?
Now that I've found this place again? My day just got better, Tim. Have I missed anything of note in the past few years? A Luch name change and another hundred pages on the thread of winning?

Started Hidden Agendas on PS4 with some friends and it's a cool party game where not everyone has to be a good gamer to enjoy it. If you can round up a handful of buddies (I think up to 6 since you can use phones as controllers) to play in your living room, it's a good time.

I'll occasionally play a SNES game or something, but mostly I'm into Street Fighter V these days. I even built my kid a fight stick (with a slimy, Ecto-cooler theme for those suh-weet style points) so he can get in on the action as well. https://imgur.com/a/981Yz
SFV: Arcade Edition and the Season 3 balance changes just dropped last week, so I've got to learn some new setups and new character matchups. Not sure how I'm liking some of my main's changes just yet, but I'll definitely make it work. I'm still the epitome of a character loyalist.

this has happened to me but not in a long time. i don't think getting hit stops waypoint use; otoh, anxiety-inducing to pull up the map when you're getting hit by anything in HC, and WPs are irrelevant in rifts...

edit: got gr86 this morning after a scare with some dervishes. can probably improve substantially with some build adjustment and a bit of luck.

Immortal monster?? I just got chased around a rift by a normal monster that wouldn't die.
It was capable of doing damage to me (this was HC) but no amount of damage would kill it.
There was no name above the monster, but it was one of those ranged attack dudes that
shoot a purple sphere. Has this happened to anyone else?

It used to happen once in a while.  I haven't had it happen for a while, but it sounds like it can still happen.

Since you can't Town Portal or use the Waypoint Map to get away from it (you get hit, which interrupts the process), I can think of only two options:

1 - There's some bracers or shoulders or something that prevent your Town Portal from being interrupted.  Obviously this only helps if you happen to have them on or with you.

2 - Find an entrance/exit to or from the area you're in.  If you can pass through a doorway or portal to another area or level or whatever, it can't follow you.
