    Standard of Heroes

    Does a Standard of Heroes do anything? Does it have any value? The once time that I kill the Ubers I left them lay and only picked up the charm. Did I miss something?

    There aren't any bragging rights at this point.

    The best theory I've heard so far is that it prevents you from losing exp when you die on softcore. I doubt it's true, but it's a whole lot better than other theories I've heard.

    Never thought of this. It can easily be checked, I will get back later with result.

    edit: Nope... experience were lost (both at the death and after recovery of body with the standard of heroes on).

    I don't care what you say, the SOH does nothing but the following:

    1) Has a level requirement of 90.

    1)Turns into a flag or "standard" when you drop it on the ground.

    2) Takes up one space in inventory.

    3) Causes seemingly endless speculation and rumors.

    Becuase it has a level requirement of 90 I personally believe it will do SOMETHING in a future patch. Right now it does nothing but what I've posted above. Anybody else want to kill a lvl 90+ character to find out if he's right, go ahead.:grin:

    Edit: Hardcore forum, LOL!!!

    In my opinion the SOH does just as much as the chat gem in the channels... it works perfectly.

    I think the wording was, "It works exactly as it was intended."

    It's probably one more of blizzard ideas "lets make a thingy like this and use it in some patch".
    The keys where in the game for a long time, but didn't drop (someone cracked the game code and found them or something, seen sreans of them way in patch 1.09 at least I think). Now blizzard found a use for them.
    He probably made SoH for the same reason, but couldn't think of a use, so let it drop from the ubers just for fun.
    If there ever will be a 1.12 patch, soh might turn out to do something, now it's just as posted above :)

    Btw. anyone tryed cubing it with various stuff?

    Rumor has it that in a future patch (LOL) there will be a 'trophy case' where a SoH can be displayed to impress other players.

    But of course, I'm a man and you're a boy.

    Sorry, if you're going to set me up, I'm going to use it.

    Lots of people are arguing that the Standard of Heroes is just a souvenir, something you can show your friends to prove that you have been able to kill the Uber-Bosses. This is almost verified to be the official use of the thing by a Blizzard moderator in a thread on the Battle.net forums (someone please link me to this thread). But in the same thread, he gave a clue that it "isnt the only thing that the Standard of Hero's" does.

    That you can use the Standard of Hero's with a cube recipe.

    Some people are spreading a rumor(?) that it is possible to cube the thing, this is a possibility, but these recipe's are verified NOT working;
    -To cube it with 3,6,9 or 12 Standard of Hereos.
    -To cube it with Wirt's Leg.
    -To cube it with Scroll or Tome of town portal.
    -To cube it together with either body parts or the keys.
    -To cube it together with the Hellfire torch.

    Some people say that you can have it in the cube when making a runeword, that way making an "Hero" runeword. This seems like a rumor, but hasn't been verified false.

    That you get any bonuses when having the Standard of Hereos in inventory.

    It has been verified that you don't get any bonuses to any stats that can be looked up at this stage, it may be true that it adds to Magic Find or Gold find. But this doesn't seem especially truly.

    That it can be used to open new areas.

    One member on the Battle.net forums, clan_iraq, said in this thread that you can via "a special way" use 40 Standard of Hereos to open a new area where you can fight the Evil-Tyrael wich dropps an super elite small charm. This has been verified fake, since the screenshots is quite badly photoshopped. But that does not stop the rumors of going around.

    That it has something to do with the mysterious Gem.

    There are several versions of this theory, but nothing has been confirmed.

    That it can be socketed in items.

    This has been verified false, this cant be done.

    That it can be sold to an NPC (ie Malah, Jamella, Cain etc.)

    This has been verified false, this cant be done.

    That it can be personalized.

    This has also been verified false, this can not be done.

    I don't see how the SOH can send a threatening e-mail to Michael Jackson every time you click it... it doesn't have a button.
