Hi everyone, I recently read Xanth's One Life to Live on Generosity, and as a still active HC D2 player, I somehow relate to that. So here it is, this is my attempt at bringing back some generosity, I offer to maintain a list of generous people and start myself by giving away some free stuff (on Europe) that will help you rebuild after an unpleasing event or progress further in inferno. This way, newcomers can turn to us, we can help grow the community, and find people to share more frightening experiences with! Hope this works out! -- TL;DR: this is a list of generous people giving away free -useful- items, in the D2's "O Free" open games style. Scroll down to get to it and find contact info. -- * Background info Those who played Hardcore back in the days of Diablo II (or those who still do) may have noticed open games titled "O Free", where people would randomly drop moderately good to great items, uniques... and useful stuff for the most part! If you haven't read Xanth's recent blog post on the matter, I suggest you quickly do so: http://diablo.incgamers.com/blog/comments/one-life-to-live-let-generosity-return Back then, it was kinda nice to meet people that still thought "hey, that thing doesn't deserve to be vendored, it helped me for some time (or could help someone else)". You met people, you made run / leveling buddies, and might have even cared about each other because you actually wanted people you play with to stay alive. And sometimes you even wanted people to become more powerful so you could face greater challenges, face Ã¼bers, hunt Diablo Clone, and so on. Now that there's no convenient way of doing so in-game, I kinda miss the feeling, and actually want to meet new faces, give them a boost, team along, and even face the ultimate challenge. So here it is, this is the great giveaway thread: helping you progress, getting you back on your feet after death. * The good stuff Here's a list of people who are currently giving away free stuff. [TABLE="width: 650, align: center"] Realm Battletag Forum name Contact method Comment Europe BLueBLue#2233 BLueBeRRy PM & IG iLVL58-63 Legs/Set/Rares, some very good stuff Link to some items Americas Stalkman#1754 Delano PM & IG "I can give a WD his first thing of the deep, or a DH a 920 dps manticore to get the ball rolling" Americas spiffymcbang#1141 spiffymcbang IG "I have a inna's radiance (helm) I can donate [...] the dex is pretty low and the random roll is cold resist." Americas Fenrir#2588 VagrantKing IG "mostly barb junk: ik belt, ik 2-hander, and a few misc items but I may help you out if you any other class" Europe iMikee#2957 Goffe IG "I have a lot of leveling equipment. most is focused on vitality so class shouldn't be a problem." Europe plant#2201 Plant IG "all kinds of rare/unique items to get inferno starters going [...] leveling gear that I'm happy to lend" "I can also help leveling" [/TABLE] PM: private message on the incgamers forums IG: in-game friend request If you want to appear on that list, PM me on the forums or in-game with your details (if you don't want to give your battletag that's fine) and a link to some of your items (imgur album, web page...). I will filter out people giving out only crap stuff, we're talking about moderately good to great stuff (or even better: if you wanna give away those CC Mempos, go ahead). * How does it work? A list of "generous" players is kept up to date here on the first post. You'll find realm, contact information, and a link to some available items. You get in touch with them, you get your stuff, you might even get along and what happens next is none of our business! * Rules No expectations: you're not entitled ot anything. If something suddenly isn't available or the owner doesn't want to give it to you, don't come here whining; No trading, no price checks: you're looking at gifts; No requests: you don't get to ask for specific stuff. Some items are already quite good. You do get to ask for class stuff however, like "please help me gear my fire monk", so you can get useful items. Just don't ask for a fist weapon with at least 200 dex and 100 vita, you'll get what we have. The following rule is up to each benefactor however: No giveaway to accounts that display overly expensive gear: we want to help people who can't afford the moderately expensive stuff on the AH, or who don't play the game as often as required to get their bankroll high enough. Notify me if someone on the list scams people, doesn't play along the rules, or whatever issue.
