You are added to the credits and the information was added to the guide :D thank you for the support.

Maybe old topic about magic find can also help in that guide.

You can add links to old forum (some informations can be outdated as versions changed during that time):
http://www.medianxl.com/t2798-slow-mechanics
http://www.medianxl.com/t3196-magic-find-mf-mechanics

---

You can add info about that after finishing Quest One in Act 5 the value of bought/sold stuff from/to vendors in Harrogath will be better for player than in other Acts, example: Larzuk selling Mystic Orbs for 10k gold each.


I added both of those links and the information about A5 Q1 making A5 the best place for buying/selling. Thank you for your support and making the guide better :)

As a new player, I found this guide very handy. Being new to Median and learning all the mechanics and basics is almost like a study (albeit a fun one :D) One thing would be nice to add though: A list with all abbreviations! Things like TU and SU (and old diablo 2 stats like ias and fhr) are easily discovered but it took me a while to find out what MO, MotW and some other abbreviations meant and I still come across some that cannot figure out.

Let me know what you think :)

There used to be a page for abbreviations in the docs but I can't seem to find it anymore. But I did find this one thread in the old forums containing most, if not all, of them here.

Edit: It got moved to the wiki -> http://median-xl.wikia.com/wiki/Abbreviations

Exactly what I was looking for, thanks Scarletedge. Dont know if it is of additional value to add the link to the beginners guide?

It didn't even cross my mind to add a list of abbreviations. Added :D (well in about 20 seconds)

Your crafting runeword tips mentions using a trial of luck mystic orb, but I can't find that for sale at all in 1.2, and from what I have read, it was removed. Care to confirm?

It was removed, indeed. There is no lucky trial anymore.

You buy an Oil of Luck from Gheed (or anyone else who sells mystic orbs). It is the purple oil. It is NOT a mystic orb.

Oil of Luck is still in the game. I think they assumed it was a MO.

I remember that luck trial, but here is what my guide is referring to.
