1) u kill dragon within 30s then u cube the charm u get in that game with trophy and u mix
2) u kill dragon within 30s then u cube ur charm upgraded and u mix
3) u kill dragon within 30s then u cube the charm, u upgrade it and then again u cube the upgraded version from same game with trophy

Actually i cannot manage to do any of these 3... If it's not 2) basically it's pointless to keep a high life 1 if u plan to trophy it...

It's 2), you need to kill the dragon and cube an upgraded charm with the trophy (within 30 seconds from entering, cubing included)


Not sure cubing is included into the 30sec since when u kill the dragon, u get 2 aura which inform that u did it in the correct time.

I think it's included but I might be wrong. Simply put, if you can't cube the upgraded charm with the trophy, you're not fast enough.

Correct, the transmute with upped charm + trophy needs to happen after killing the dragon and before the 30s mark. At least that's how I've always done it.

What the hell are you talking about? Maybe you should install the version of at least D2 1.13c, then install Uploader. Or is that too hard?


:facepalm: I belive expecting intelligence here is *too hard*.

Turquoise is a gem, not a jewel.

Hi, I'm wondering if items retain their mystic orb bonuses if you uptier them? Like if I uptier my rabbit's foot boots from 3 to 4, will they keep the mystic orb bonuses that they have or will I need to buy new orbs? Thanks!

if you uptier a unique then the affixes reroll and you lose your MOs

if you uptier anything else then you keep your MOs

Life leech vs life on attack vs life on striking for a physical melee char?
What's better to use - jewels with 2% ll or with 8 life on attack? In this case, for an iron spiral barb (which is a melee attack that deals 70% physical dmg). I've read that LoA works on succesful hits, but in case of iron spiral, does it give 8 life for each sword seen on the attack animation or is it just 8 life for the whole attack?

You get 1/15 of ll on Hell and ll is based on dmg, which is pretty low on this attack and monsters probably have some %DR as well, so I guess LoA is better in this case? You can get 15% ll vs up to 64 LoA from ~8 jewels . 15% ll will become 1% ll on Hell, 1% of, let's say, 5k dmg is 50 life vs flat 64 life from LoA. So, is this the answer, or am I thinking wrongly?

Which one is better for a Shapeshifter merc (2% ll or 8 LoA)? I guess this merc also uses melee physical attacks with rather low dmg, so the answer is the same?

Also, how good is life on striking and how exactly does it work? I've read that it works with ranged attacks, while LoA works only with melee, but is it better than LoA for a melee char as well? Or is it only an alternative for ranged attacks? The values from various items are pretty low compared to the values of LoA, but one barb shield gives 10 LoS, which seems like a lot, compared to other items, so I wonder how good it is.

Thanks in advance!
