I have just started this game and am at level 4 playing as a Paladin. I now have a small figure of a knight in armor in the upper right corner of the screen. I can't find anything in my manual or strategy guide that mentions this. Mousing over has no effect.

Hey Pokey!

You need to repair your armor, go back to town and talk to the blacksmith lady, choose the shopping option, and there will be a button on the window that appears to repair all equipment. Hit it.

Thanks, Schwab. I wouldn't have figured that out. Now that I look under repair in the manual, it is spelled out. I don't remember a blacksmith lady, but will check it out.

I killed Blood Raven, or thought I did since the quest completed and I got a reward, but when I went back to the burial ground to check out the crypt and the mausoleum, she was there again with all her minions. Do I have to kill her a second time to enter these areas? I lost the archer in a battle in Stony Fields.

Hi all,

You have to explore the area when you are there the first time because every time you go back to any area the enemies are there again.

Yes you have to kill Blood Raven and company to be able to explore the area again. Sorry.

If you loose your archer then you have to hire another one to replace her.

Thanks, Magic. I am surprised to learn that, but will either kill her again or dash to the entrances of those places. I had no room in my inventory the first time, so had to return to town.

Is there a waypoint in the Dark Wood? Seems like I've covered all of it and haven't found one yet.

Level 7 now.

A easy way to find out if there is a way point is go to the way point in camp. Stand on it all the way points will be listed. The ones you have you found and turned on will be lite up. The dark ones you either haven't found or did not activate.
The only good thing about fighting Blood Raven again is she'll drop all her goodies again ! ! Of course you also get exp. points again.

I went back and cleaned out Dark Wood again and finally found the waypoint hidden in a corner. Glad I have a way to get back to camp.

Ingie, I just installed it in XP and it worked. I didn't do anything special.

I've rescued Cain now and ready to head off to the Black Marsh. This game just keeps calling you back.

I cleared out the Black marsh and entered the tower, but in the process I died. I went back to find my body and died again, losing Wirt's leg and a nice shield. I did find my body and got most of my inventory back, but will I be able to get the other items back from the second time I died?

Hi all,

Yes you can get back everything you loose.
You will have to crosses on the map where your bodies are.

You can also save and exit the game then go back and your stuff will be right there next to your chest in town on the ground so you just click on it.

You can do this anytime you die so you don't have to go back to the area if you were surrounded by enemies.

I love that chest which will be with you in any town you will travel to. The stuff is safe in there and don't forget to deposit you coins so when you die you don't loose all the money you had with you. In this game the only thing you really loose is the money and the rest is still there with your body.

Well my assassin is now ready to go into the Monestary. Moving on...hehe. smile

I like the sorceress and the Necromancer also because they can summon help and don't have to do very much if anything at all hehe.

I also like my very fast Axe with fire,cold and poison damage on it. smile

Look for slotted items in armor or weapons so you can insert the gems you find or stuff like skeleton head which give you extra damage or ruin stones also.

When I loaded the game this morning, there wasn't anything near my stash. Guess I'll need to buy a new shield. I lost my fancy staff too. My body did reappear in camp when I died in the burial grounds, but not this time. How do I know how many Town Portals I have in my tome? It doesn't seem to open up--or maybe I have to try outside of camp.

I think each type Tomb [Townportal/Identity] holds 20 scrolls each. Can't really remember but if you hold the mouse over the Tomb it may tell you. You may need to have your inventory open.
Wish I could help more.

Hi all,

That is very weird that you didn't have your body with all of your stuff appear in town when you reloaded the game. Hmpt.

Is the stuff in your inventory or do you have the stuff equipped and don't realize it?

When you look in your inventory you can equip more then one weapon. Look above the weapon and you will see a numeral number I and II and click on them to see if the shield is maybe hidden to you?

If not then I am sorry you lost your good stuff.

Another thing to check is to look on the map where you died incase the bodies might still be there?

Hold your cursor over the Tomb and it will let you know how many there are. It only holds 20 of them.

I always have spare armor and weapon in my chest incase I decide to go back to where I died and pick up my stuff and not exit the game.

Well hope this helps and good luck.
See you in my travels. smile

I checked everyplace but nothing turned up. Oh well, I have enough gold now that I can buy a shield. I did find a couple nice ones, but had no space in my inventory and they had to be identified to equip. I should have dropped some of my stuff.

I finished the Forgotten Tower and am on my way to the monastery. The prayer aura for the paladine is really handy.

Hi all,

Don't worry....you will find even better stuff as you get further into the game. smile

You can use scrolls to ID the stuff yourself.

My Paladin is way way ahead of my other players and I do like the moves he has. One skill really really makes him fast in hitting his axe..phew.

He may be in the 3rd or so area already but I haven't played him for a long time so don't remember for sure. I'll have to go see what the name of the place is where he is. Hmmm.

I have been just playing my other 3 people to move them along and they are getting some really cool skills now.

I finished the monastery and as a reward for returning the hammer I got some super upgrades to my superior sceptor. I can't use it yet because I'm not quite to level 12. I did find a large shield and this time I had a scroll to identify it. The zeal skill looks like it might be a great one to have and I'm working towards it. I'm going to have to do some leveling up before I attempt the next quest.

Hi,

I checked and my Paladin is level 29 and he is in the final area ready to go after Diablo. I think I will continue with my other people before I have to face that devil. No way right now.

I was playing my Sorceress today and she kept dying in the Monestary....oh well....a little at a time and we will have the hammer.

She is only level 13 ( I think) and not as strong as I would like but will upleavel soon.

Boy love her frostball spell. Pretty good but uses a lot of manna.

My credo with Diablo 2 is: anything that freezes/slows down the enemy will keep you alive. I never played a Paladin all the way to Diablo, but I can tell you with the Sorceress she is very effective with cold based spells. Frost Nova will slow down whole groups of monsters and do a little damage.

Some equipment has the Frost Nova spell on it. It will cast it randomly. When you are attacked.

Finally made it all the way through the jail. So many rooms and I was never sure I was heading the right way. I missed a way point in the first level but found the one in the inner cloister. Safe for the moment, we'll rest up for tomorrow. My paladine is at level 12.

Hi,

Well Thank You Schwab35 for that info and I will keep that in mind.

I think my Sorceress with her freeze spells is the best one so far but the Necromancer with his golems to help is pretty good too. smile

Way to go Pokey and you are ahead of me because I still keep dying before I get to the Smith with the hammer. Oh well....onward we go.

We will not give up.

Hi,

Oh what fun....Pib I hope you join us in this game and Welcome. smile

I just wanted to add that I discovered that by clicking on the letter O key you can give your archer a Helm and Armor for more protection for her.

I have no idea what I was looking for but this came up by pushing all of the letter keys.

I just wanted to share this if you didn't already know this.

Oh and I can't wait until I can use Frost Nova.
