With the removal of arcane shards drop from act bosses it became much harder to farm arcane crystals.

You can still farm them...

Point here is killing said boss 10 or 25 times doesn’t make a difference early game unless you are still looking for pgems to boost your resistances. It just makes the process longer. Not a big fan of this change personally.

Arcane shards were removed as drops but you get 2? free crystals per difficulty and bosses have never been the optimal way to farm shards, Nihlathak takes that crown easily.

Im having an issue. The game works fine but when I close diablo 2 I get an unhandled exception error access violation c0000005. What could be the problem?

Wolf Stance is giving Block Rate at nearly the same values as the other speed, but icon doesn't list it.

I was doing the Edyrem Path level and this keeps happening. Did it twice (i close everything and relaunch), and the same thing happened when i kill Diablo.

Is this a common thing? or what can i do to finish this fight?

PS:: This was in Single Player.

Sometimes it happens but it's surely not common. Probably isn't related at all but for science try doing the fight without D2Stats running. Also in your Diablo II installation folder there should be a folder called "Logs" inside it you'll find one or more D2Debug.txt, upload here the one with the matching date of when you got the error (numbers in the name year-month-day). Or even better, if the error is replicable, delete all the debug logs in the folder and let the game create a new one once you get the error again.

Just some feedback about elemental bow builds (and possibly other elemental builds). With the new elemental-based weapons one of the biggest problems I find are a lack of available life and mana leech. While crafting elemental weapons can help with this, it puts endgame options into question.

1. Progression is halted by either build path... Crafted bows do not deal enough damage to complete late game content without legendary luck, and SU's often don't have any means of life or mana steal.

2. Only on striking procs and life/mana work with ranged weapons... With no good life/mana on striking options in the other item slots, stronger elemental SU weapons are rendered useless (e.g. Desolation, Horned Hunter). On kill procs are only effective against hordes of enemies.

3. Many bow skills drain mana quickly. With not many mana on striking options, it is a struggle to gain enough mana (with wyrmshot for instance). Solved with mana regen mos in jewelry

My suggestion would be to have some items, perhaps some jewels or effigies for elemental bases, that grant life/mana on striking or a proc. I feel it would help to overcome the progression barrier. Otherwise physical-based builds just seem like the better option.
