Upgrading Legendary Items - Tips
« on: 22 April 2018, 16:05:45 »
Hello guys,

I made a new video about the Craftsmanship Side Quest. I made a few test and I hope it can solve some of your questions.

i will add something that is not very likable if i post in reddit i am sure to get tons of downvotes  ;D

9) upgrade your item of choice and just be content with what you get.. i understand people like to break the game but abusing the quest reward is not the right way and I'm not saying that just because it's not worth your time.. we've done this hundreds of times in diablo 2.. at first it feels good but after you're done with the game, when you feel like you've mastered the game to some degree, it is not very satisfying.. you've made a powerful character but it is forever tainted.. peace :)

nice video editing again excalibur.. i hope to learn it someday.. if i get confused by something or if i find it too difficult, i hope you don't mind if i ask you some questions :D  for starters, what program do you use?

@Nufan You're welcome mate!

@botebote77
I think I know where you are trying to conclude but you still confuse me with the way you are mentioning it. Can you be a bit more clear? And I am really curious to know about D2. What exactly did you abuse there?
I use Sony Vegas. It's a professional editing Software, very powerful and even easy to use for amateurs. Half of the Youtube community is using this software. It's not free though.  O:-)

eh? i don't want to reminisce but it's somewhere buried in the xmax hardcore challenge thread.. i think I'm being nosy why am i even posting there? :/
Spoiler for Hiden:
maybe because a few times I've seriously considered joining but realized hardcore and me don't go well together.. i quickly bore if I'm playing only 1 char.. also, if i find a certain boss fight to be challenging/fun, i can't help but do it again and again.. it's also in my nature that when i go against Hades and Dactyl don't appear, instead of advancing i save and exit and do it again until he appears
it's nothing against your video.. maybe it started with 1 of my classmates when he said he wants to play it single player.. we were like huh? why? he said he wants to play it no cheats, no manipulation of save game files, just the way the game is intended to be played.. that was years ago but even now when i look back at it, we were good but even though we didn't resort to custom made items, all our strongest characters were stained with some form of cheating

paid program damn.. i guess I'm in the other half.. i use windows movie maker because it's free :)

excalibur1, is it ok if your thread deviates a little? maybe we can use this thread to share our legendary craftsmanship results.. that way maybe we can crack this quest reward a little
i'll start.. i've only done this quest 3x.. once on my sorcerer(legendary only) and twice on my haruspex(normal and epic).. i don't save my save files just before i complete the quest so what i get is what i get.. i wasn't able to take pics of before and after but with the help of tqvault, my affixes are:

sorcerer(legendary only): stalwart polaris of shelter
from tq-db: stalwart is lvl 40 req, of shelter is lvl 25

haruspex(normal): insulated aphrodite's favor of reasoning
insulated is lvl 15, of reasoning is lvl 8

haruspex(epic): savant's visor of the shadowlord of regeneration
savant's is lvl 32, of regeneration is lvl 36

i'm curious to see what other people got

edit: anyone tried upgrading a blue item? maybe you have better chance of getting good affixes? or yellows? lol.. it's not impossible though, in diablo 2 if you use the act 5 socket quest reward on a legendary item, you only get 1 socket.. if you use it on a white item you get much more.. i remember one of my favorites was a white chest armor with 6 sockets

or santa's? is it possible to upgrade santa's shield? bludgeon of true sight? shinobi shozoku set? armament of gaul set?

Yes definitely although I have to say that this will probably not help.

I haven't tried any of these but I am pretty sure those can be used.
