How do you keep that much gold when the stash limit is 150,000? I am just about to hit level 30. Looking forward to using Salvation.

My stash suddenly jumped from 150,000 to 200,000 to 800,000. I don't know why it did that last increase, I was expecting the 150,000 to 200,000 when I hit level 30. But the jump to 800,000 wasn't expected at all. I have about 400,000 in there now.

[add] just to be clear. In the post above, my stash has a limit of 800,000. I have just barely gotten above 400,000.[/add]

Congrats, Magic!!! Well done.

Apparently, at level 30 in the normal game, your stash holds 200,000 gold. But once you move on to Act V, it seems to jump by 50,000 per level, not per 10 levels. So I've had

800,000 gold at 31
850,000 at 32 and now
900,000 at level 33 (Hmm, that may be off by a level, I have to check the game again). Now that is a very impressive stash cash limit. And I'm no where near filling it up.

But is there anything to buy with all that gold? I haven't seen anything good since Act 3. I haven't found anything worth switching to either.

I rescued Anya and then found the Glacial Trail waypoint. Time to enter Anya's red portal. I'm finally getting some gold--nearly 200,000. It costs a lot to resurrect the barbarian, though he's only died once so far. I wish there was a hot key to give him potions and not have to fumble around finding one and putting it on his icon.

I find that the smith and Anya sometimes have good equipment that's quite expensive. And now I have enough gold in reserve to gamble more often.

I expect that fighting Baal is going to cost me dearly, when I get there. smile

I didn't think to check with Anya.

What is that Scroll of Resistance Malah gave me? I don't know what to do with it and it takes a lot of space in the inventory. Looks like a one shot deal.

It is. Just right click to gain a bonus to resistance. I don't think there is any reason not to go ahead and do it immediately.

Unlike choosing an item to get sockets from the smith. That one you want to be very careful with and choose a good item.

Thanks. I still haven't got sockets placed in an item. I don't have any great rune or gem to put in it.

Found the waypoint in Hall of Pain and quitting for the night. Of course it was the last room I looked in. Level 31 now.

I found it doesn't always pay to repair an item before selling. I found a stick worth 25,000 and it cost 26,000 to repair---but after repairing, it brought only 25,000. frown

I can't sell anything for more than 25,000 gold ever. So if it's close to that already, I don't bother.

Rescuing Barbarians should have netted you three runes to place in a socketed shield. Mind you, to get the full effect, you need a) a shield with exactly three sockets and b) place those runes in exactly the right order.

I did place the three runes in order in my socketed shield. I haven't used it much because I have been using salvation with my two handed weapon.

How is your assassin doing? I haven't left the second floor waypoint yet. It was easy to that point but will get harder.

I won't be repairing anything that is close to 25,000 again--if I even find any.

Finally found the waypoint in the Frozen Tundra. Died once doing the extra level you can find in the Frozen Tundra. Found the entrance to the Ancient Way, but it was too late and I didn't feel like searching for the waypoint.

And, yeah, a shield is pretty useless for an assassin, since if you've taken her down the martial arts path, it's best to have duel claw class weapons. I have a really lovely sword to swap to, but she's just too good with those claws.

Hi all,

Well having fun running around in Act III and getting way better stuff to sell.

Money is piling up faster then it has up to now.

Wish they didn't have this maze like jungle to try and figure out which way to go but we are slowly finding our way around.

My assissan is using Isenhart's sword and breast plate and doing pretty good and also using firestorm to clear the way.

Enjoy the money piling up. I went through quite a lot of it in Act IV.

Your Assassin obviously doesn't depend on a combination of Cobra Strike and Dragon Claw. Swords don't work with moves like that.

Well, people, I found and unlocked the last waypoint in Diablo 2. Finished all quests barring the last one. Have 700,000 in cash to spare - should be useful if we die (and die and die and die). smile The Ancients didn't give me too much grief, but I died fairly soon after from carelessness.
