    Compilation Guide (Manual/how2classic)

    Changed it since it hasn't been updated since Jan 12, 08. The new style, this site finally got spoilers.

    Version 3 -
    - Redid some organization
    - Rare evaluation link
    - still needing other informational links (blizz sorc, more comprehensive rare evaluation)
    ===-----===
    1. Why
    ===-----===
    I'll begin with why you should read this. It's a quick guide that will help you get used to classic on battle.net. It assumes some generic DII knowledge by the way.

    Classic is a complete, different world of the game. The basic goal of the guide is to give you an idea of what classic really is as well as an idea of how you would go about starting it.

    Good job!
    I think you hit many important aspects of classic, which will help the many people who read this.

    Best I could come up with is "Classic for Dumbies"


    I want to see people's opinions on using the glitcher build while actually csing.
    Sorry, but I didn't cs with my glitcher, so no opinion there.

    I think it should be stickied.

    So tempted to come back to classic...I know the reason why you rank sorcs above all is due to tele, but why barbs above hammerdins ? When I used to be active (around mid-2004 I think) barbs needed relatively decent equipment to do well, and hammerdins can use gear and have a good killing speed...

    River of fire area lvl is 77. Being unique gives +3 lvls if I recall right. So that's like 80 max. How could lvl88 - 91 get any exp here from Urdars? Are they bugged? =)

    Sorcs above barbs is their easy resists. Barbs over hammerdin is find item. Barbs can use bonesnap pretty effectively, and manage with some sets/unique combinations. I really don't recommend them almost. I had trouble with their resist/leech balancing. Hammerdin imo isn't the best first character but it's in the character guides. Their main trouble is solo killing. I guess CS gives easy leveling with easy gear but that's why I was asking about glitchers in CS. There's blizzers too.

    I don't think they're bugged. It was suggested by somebody in the last version. I have no clue honestly. I know in LoD champions get a rather high mlvl boost.

    edit - that should be solo targets.

    Nice guide. Very clear and apart from a bit of fleshing out where you mentioned ... fantastic. Thank you.

    Edit:

    Can 40 mf rings spawn in classic? That's both mf affix and prefix on a magical ring.

    Thanks. ^^ I forgot how long I wrote this after I started playing classic. I could probably check later but it was actually really soon after I started. I'm glad it wasn't some nub guide.

    According to orphan's mod listings, yes. Nearly the same as in LoD except maybe ilvl. It's probably incredibly rare to get anything about 30, though. It's a different mod after 15 mf in the suffix. They're rare in LoD too.

    Re: Compilation Guide (Manual/how2classic)

    never found rare gloves with 20 ias on classic, u sure bout that ?
    mana goes up to 60 on amus and rings
    also mana is desirable on boots and gloves (max 40)

    i mentioned urds earlier from personal experience, often during some high level cs soso's stop for them on their way to cs, the exp was noticeable even when i was 90, was told by higher chars that this works up to 92

    i've been doing a lot shard/gull trading recently on euro, my observations:

    - shard tier - frosties, eyeless, sback, gwrap, raven, angelic amy, iratha parts
    shard tier - twitch, mfists, goblins, ume's, low tarns/snaps
    +shard tier - decent tarns/snaps, 40+ wards
    - gull tier - 48-49 ward/tarn, ~168+ snap
    gull tier - p ward/tarn/snap

    these wary depending on individual needs, but not greatly
    gulls are overpriced now, i guess because they are hoarded in great numbers unlike other gull tier items

    "All things classic" would be fine name, if it wasn't taken

    I dont know if they are bugged or not, but it works (at least to level 87).
