Is the drop rate for the charm in tran athulua still 1/6? I've just done at least 10 full runs and not a single one has dropped. And yes, I'm on destruction (single player).

Yes it is. You're just having bad luck. I remember having to do the Ennead Challenge 11 times until I got my class charm.

Hi there, I'm trying out Tantrumdin, but got stuck in Fauztinville (Black road challenge) since I get oneshoted the moment I get close to mobs. I'm at 85K def, capped res and 8k hp. Is there anything I'm missing?
e: tried skill potion got my def to 130k - still same result

85k is very low for the suggested level (115). Are you sure you are using the correct items with the right mystic orbs transmuted in them? Have you maxed out the TCD/flat defence bonus on your char orb?

Also with 130k defence it should be perfectly doable, just don't rush in and get surrounded. Most likely you neglected to orb properly (def + fhr, cb on weapon etc).

Yup, that was it. Just did it a minute ago. I was probably just too reckless.

Can the Morlus that Lilith summons in Toraja drop greater runes just as the "normal" mobs there?

My mouse is doing something weird where when I close a page (inventory, stats, quest box, etc) the mouse doesn't remain where it was, but jumps a few inches north-west of its original position. So if i'm running while looking at my skills or inventory, I close it and my guy will change directions cuz my mouse flew somewhere else. I've never used D2SE beore now, is it a setting on there that causes this?

Found a post of marco saying it's less than 100%.

It's a bug with the glide wrapper that comes with d2se by default. You have two options:

1) If you want to keep using glide. Open glide-init.exe in your d2 directory. Go to the "renderer" category and set the "static size" dropdown list to no. Then go to the "extensions" category and make sure that WGL_ARB_render_texture is enabled. Then when you get into the game, click the fullscreen button to maximise the game window.

If you have a slow pc I suggest running d2 with "-ns" command in the shortcut target to avoid fps drops.

2) Select D2D in the video options. Doing so will make the game look very bad however.
