    Re: Hi guys, newcomer to Diablo 2 here.

    After years of playing I'm still not sure what these do. Mana burn of some kind? Damage? No idea

    Re: Hi guys, newcomer to Diablo 2 here.

    I just remembered a couple things from that hated Chaos Sanctuary. I got three different effects over my characters heads.

    1. Yellow dots jumping all around, kinda like popcorn popping.

    2. Red smudge or fire over character heads.

    3. Blue smudge / fire.

    What are these exactly? I know they're some sort of status effect, but I have no idea which ones.

    Re: Hi guys, newcomer to Diablo 2 here.

    They are curses

    yellow dots: weaken ( decreases damage )
    Red smudge: life tap
    Red fire: Amplify damage ( = bad. Be careful )
    white/blue type fire: Decrepify ( slows you down )

    If you play necromancer you will have more idea.

    Re: Hi guys, newcomer to Diablo 2 here.

    Yeah. If you can look up pictures of each one, or video or something. I still don't know all of them, though.
    I thiiiinnnk the purple one is lower resist, and I'm also pretty sure they accidentally nerfed it, so it doesn't actually do anything to you (aka free curse override ). What I mean is that when oblivion knights use it on you, it has no effect. If you made a necro it would have an effect though.

    afaik, oblivion knights can't cast lower resist in 1.13. Lower resist (and iron maiden) will be cast by OK's in the pre-1.13 patches.

    Yes, slows you down, but also:

    - Lowers your physical resistance by 50%-units (so if you had 0% physical damage reduction before, you will now take 1.5x damage).
    - Lowers your physical damage output to half.

    Re: Hi guys, newcomer to Diablo 2 here.

    I've cleared the first area in Act 5, and finished the first quest. That area was pretty long with what seemed like a million catapults.

    I'm now in the 2nd area, and man... I'm starting to really hate these teleporting monsters.

    They're pretty annoying :P
    I think the bloody foothills is probably the largest area in the game (jungle size varies). Even running past everything, it still takes a full 2 minutes, I think.

    Re: Hi guys, newcomer to Diablo 2 here.

    Just made it through two more huge areas, the Frozen area and the Highlands. I also cleared the two lava dungeons. I'm resting up and preparing to crawl through the Crystalline Pass. These monsters are leveling me fast with /players8. I'm already level 41, and I'm loving my level 14 blizzard. It tears through these guys in usually 1 - 2 castings.
