comment what strength level to hold a 2 handed weapon in 1 hand as barbarian in diablo 2?
You can only wield two handed swords in one hand as a Barbarian. Not other kinds of weapons.

comment How would you counter a Priest that relies on Northshire Cleric?
While reading no.5, I got that image of casting Holy Nova (damaging all enemy minions) followed by Circle of Healing (healing all minions). You would need to play as a Priest, of course. And the enemy better have 5+ creatures :)

comment Why is my Hill Orc apparantly no longer a priest?
erm, yes it does. Losing 3 piety is part of its costs.

comment Guild Exalted on a level 1 (bank alt)
My bad. It is even worse: You need to be level 5 for fishing. It never occurred to me, that the secondary professions could have a level requirement. Sorry for that.

The daily cooking and fishing quests would add a few points, too.

comment Got stuck in Chaos Sanctuary, now what do I do?
As you are playing in softcore mode: The stat Vitality, which increases your life, is often neglected. It might be helpful to raise your vitality/life a bit, so you could avoid the one-hit deaths.

comment Recommendations for switching for a long-time Keyboard Turner
The F-Keys are separated in blocks of 4 on many keyboards. Any of them can be found blindly with very little training. Also, depending on the make of the keyboard, some of the keys are specially marked to aid in 10 finger typing. These little marks could also be of help to find your way with the left hand without looking too much. You can feel those marks when speedily gliding your fingers over the keys and then you know where you are.

comment Progression through WoW that avoids spiders
I do not know the post-cataclysm Wetlands very well and I cannot check them out atm. But there used to be a spider infested cave near the exit to Loch Modan, the dwarven area. If there are still spiders in there, it needs to be avoided.

comment What caused Dark Age of Camelot to lose popularity?
I have never played DAoC, so can just state my outside view. Two of surely many reasons are World of Warcraft and Guild Wars. The former catered for PvE centered players, which would not have felt at home in DAoC anyway. The latter catered for PvP centered players.

comment Is magical/enchanted damage more effective against certain types of monsters than others?
@Melini: As I understand the question, it concerns the monster side of things: "What is a monster resistant against and how can the player find out?". The answer you provided concerns the player side: "If I deal holy damage, will I do extra damage against undead monsters". Monster resistances are not mentioned/touched in there.

comment How can I change the number of sockets for Runewords?
@bummzack: You can cube elite items with an item level of 1 with the cube recipes, which turn low quality (cracked and damaged) items into normal quality items. classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/cube.shtml

comment How can I change the number of sockets for Runewords?
The number of sockets you get from the Larzuk reward will vary, depending on the item level. Some details on the ArreatSummit: classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/quests/rewards.shtml. This info is quite useful to get only 4 sockets from this reward into a Partizan for the Insight rune word.

comment Can I reach this place in Superfrog?
The tag "retro-game-challenge" has so far been used for the Nintendo DS game of that name. In my opinion it is a potential cause of confusion in this question.

comment Do Iron Golems get the benefits of Summon Resist and Golem Mastery without being resummoned?
Au contraire, the moment of entering a game would be the only time, where it would make sense to re-evaluate current skills of the Necromancer. At least in light of the Information you already had, that in-game minions properties are determined at the time of their creation. Have a look here: mannm.org/d2library/faqtoids/minions_eng.html#ig

comment Friend can’t connect to my Diablo 2 LAN game
Can the two computers communicate over tcp/ip at all? Can you successfully excute ping commands from each of them to the respective other?
