Thanks for the great guide. This is my first char in Median XL and overall since coming back to D2 after all those years.
My question is regarding the recommended starter weapon for the Sumodin, you have listed: Weapon: Prophecy --> Dies Metus
However Prophecy according to the docs can only apply to scepters and not maces. I tried socketing a grey goedendag with a jewel and the Ith rune and nothing happened, it didn't turn into the Prophecy runeword. I also tried applying the Ith rune on a unique (gold) Dies Metus with the same result.
Could you please clarify what you mean by Weapon: Prophecy --> Dies Metus?
Runewords can only be created in grey items (=white items with sockets). What I mean with that expression is that before you go and get Dies Metus, you can use Prophecy. An ith rune can easily drop in act 1 and that +1 to all skills and the resist really help you out early on. You can create that runeword in a grey scepter, war scepter or a Grand scepter. It wont work in any other item.
Dies Metus can be crafted later on once you have access to Mephisto and can farm uniques for arcane shards/arcane crystals.
Thanks a lot for the clarification, that makes sense now =)
I've just finished normal difficulty and it's great fun using this char.
