Surely there's a better way than simply throwing your corpse at mobs, slowly whittling them down until you can move or attack.


Pax Mystica (Xis)

'NefXis'
Runeword Level: 121
+15 to All Skills
+30% Enhanced damage
+(20 to 37) to Blink
All Resists +(55 to 66)%
(101 to 125)% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items
has 12+ second aoe stun which allows you to survive the initial jump and attack before taking tons of damage (all forms of teleport have ~0.5s cooldown on all skills after use, which is enough to kill most squishy chars). Then it's just a matter of damage.

Yes there are some spots like that. Assur's room is a good example. There's a corner to the bottom of that little room above his that you can walk closer to the wall than anywhere else in that room and they can throw barrels at you from there.

The Demon Lords are now the Shroom Turrets at the Duriel area.

Maybe it will sound "lazy" to some, but is there any place I can see an updated list of any, lets call it, "crafting items" drops? Location / difficulty?
By this I mean anything related to horadric cube. Cause things change and potions that previously dropped from monsters now can be bought, MO also, but not all of them. So I'm a bit confused...

Once again, as a new person to this mod (which is great btw) I find it overwhelming at times to follow the changes. In most cases I find info on-line just to realize it is out of date and here there is either limited documentation (for the purposes of finding out on our own, I guess) or I have to admit I do not know how to search :(

Sorry, still extremely new to this...

although i have been playing for a while already i only recently joined the forum here but people have always helped me so far
community seems really friendly and it's awesome! for cube check here https://docs.median-xl.com/doc/items/cube
you can find more stuff here https://docs.median-xl.com/ if you check each upper tab
i can agree there is a lot of stuff any my head is always running numbers testing builds and it can get overwhelming
still the game is really fun and lots of stuff to do even tho i consider some areas crazy hard

edit: i read something about crafting points but no idea how they work or where to get them or how to craft items besides cubing

Yes those are all the important recipes https://docs.median-xl.com/doc/items/cube

Crafting points are gone from the game. Don't matter no more.

Now about that crafting page you need to fully understand what the shrine crafting and blessing thing is. Out of a rare sacred item you create a crafted item it has the shrine bonuses https://docs.median-xl.com/doc/wiki/shrines and you can bless those too (you can also bless rares or honorific items) to get the shrine bonuses again. In addition to the shrine bonuses they also have some rare modifiers https://docs.median-xl.com/doc/wiki/affixes depending on the ilvl. To make a non rare item suitable for crafting you can use the downgrade recipes to make it white and imbue it with the charsi quest. Which returns the item with an ilvl that is your character level +5 (in all difficulties) but 99 is max actually. Sometimes you also want ilvl 1 and there is an recipe for that too.

For shrine crafting if you find a jewel in terror act 5 or destruction it has always an ilvl of 99. You can jewel craft it 6 times before it's ilvl is lower than 71 i.e. not 100% max affixes.

You can use the make "Reroll any Item to Unique" recipe not only to get tiered unique like Deadfall Belt but also for rings, amulets and quivers. Of course it only gives you tiered uniques but some of those are good, especially Empyrean Bands

No idea what I forgot but with that you can handle most of the stuff.

Thanks for your reply! The links you gave I've read already, but there are still A LOT I have no idea about and was looking for a way to educate myself on. The community here is great, no doubt. But you have to know stuff to ask for more, and there are tons of things I bet I cant even begin to guess. SO,yea, I'm looking for a "list"
