    You've corrupted me (and I think I like it)

    For the first time in... ever, I'm playing a SP character. Not just have: play. I'm enjoying it, but I'm a bit out of my element at times.

    I've had my first ATMA crash/corruption. I made the mistake of putting an Essence of Mephisto Poop into an ATMA stash. Not long after, ATMA crashed and caused the stash to be saved as a 0kb file.

    Do Essences combine into the skill/stat reset item in SP? Does the skill/stat reset item work in SP?

    Unchanging maps are awesome. My Hell map takes ~7 teleports untill I can cast static on Mephisto.

    But I've noticed something else: drops are not as varied as I'm used to. I get bows. Lots and lots of bows. Magic bows. Rare bows. Unique Bows. No set bows, ironically. Before my ATMA crash, I think I had at least one of every normal/exceptional unique bow. I've seen multiple (3-4+) of several different unique bows. This isn't a flavor of the day kind of streak. It happens day after day after day. Is this normal? Is this a side effect of unchanging maps?

    If you are using d2x 1.13 you should use Gomule instead. Atma only support up to 1.11 or something.

    ATMA stashes only corrupt if you are mafia.

    +1 for GoMule. If you must use ATMA, I am told that storing Essences on a character mule instead of in a stash is safer.

    And yes, essences work in SP

    There are monsters which drop more bows than others, like (surprise!) those wearing bows.

    Essences in ATMA need to be kept on a mule. Check out the first post of the Stickied ATMA/GoMule help thread. Or use GoMule which is java-based and has a lot of neat search things going on. Happy hoarding.

    Do Essences combine into the skill/stat reset item in SP? Does the skill/stat reset item work in SP?
    Yes. Also in the Stickied SPF FAQ is a post "Does this work in SP". It was written by Cattleya quite a while ago but pretty much the only things which don't work in SP are Ubers/Torch/Anni. The runewords we can enable using RWM.

    But I've noticed something else: drops are not as varied as I'm used to. ... Is this normal? Is this a side effect of unchanging maps?
    The map seed will have an effect on the drops. However unless you're using the seed command in the start up, it shouldn't be a huge deal (we don't accept using the seed command except in certain circumstances).

    This isn't accurate. ATMA works fine up to and including the latest patch. Check the first post of the Stickied help thread regards things like fixes/essences/keys. GoMule is newer than ATMA and has a more simple search and more convenient group pick up function, but that's about it.

    These were my thoughts.

    I'd use GoMule if I had Java installed. I won't install Java unless it's inside a VM and I don't want to play in a VM. Maybe I'll rethink this if Java's attempts to divorce itself from the browser are successful.

    I don't think Mephisto wears bows...

    No seed command being used which is why I'm wondering why the loot randomness isn't so random.

    Crazy, I know! Haven't played in a while but I used to play a char or two most ladders.

    SC - I look away from the screen far too much to play HC. I also enjoy taking risks. At half life? No worries and no need to chug a potion. Blindly teleport around and kill everything anyway.

    Blizz sorc to start - I haven't really played one before. I've always preferred a well aimed, fully synergized FO to blizzard. With blizzard, you cast and hope one of the balls hits what you just aimed at. With FO, I know it's going to hit.

    My goal is to get an Enigma and make one of several chars that only shine once you get one. Never had an Enigma before. I've only seen one HR drop ever (Lo - made a post about it long ago). I'd also like to make a druid since I haven't played one past nightmare before. If I'm feeling saucy, maybe a character that presses the shift key to play well (that's right - no well played hammerdins for me).

    Silly pharphis! I didn't mean that I was going to make a hammerdin. I meant every time I've played one, they suck because I don't use the shift key to make a hammer field.

    Besides, I'm making an Enigma character before the shift-key character. I was thinking poison nova or singer for Enigma and some type of bow zon for the shift key.
