    Looking at runes and I see:

    Eth -25% To Target Defense

    Does it subtract every hit or just the first hit? And how long does it last?

    Every hit and always. IIRC, though, it's less effective against uniques, champions, bosses, etc. (maybe 1/2 as effective).

    I think you are reading the description wrong, though. Each hit does not separately subtract 25%, it just means that for the weapon with the Eth in it, the enemy's AC is treated as 25% less than it is.

    You'd be better off socketing a Jah rune if you can get it - it adds the Ignores Target's Defense modifier, which is a lot better.
    Of course, finding a jah rune legitimately is hard - if you are playing single player or open b.net, you could use a program like hero editor to give yourself one though.

    Yeah, but ITD does not work on bosses, so I wouldn't waste a valuable Jah on that - too many sweet runewords use it.

    As far as i know, Hero Editor v1.04 still works for 1.14d, even though it was released back when 1.13c was newly out.

    Got it but I don't see any way to get items I haven't imported? Like the Jah rune?

    • go to the inventory tab -> click the button 'extras' to open a new window.
    • In the new window, make sure you have the tab 'new item/character create' selected on the bottom right.
    • navigate to the item you want in the left most dropdown menu and select it.
    • press the button 'copy item to PickedUP'
    • back in the inventory tab, drag and drop the item from the 'picked up' box to a spot in your inventory.
    you can also use the item edit tab to change modifiers of an item you have selected.

    I never had any problems getting the program to work for me, but if you get stuck on how to use it, the video here does an ok job of explaining how the inventory editing functions work :

    The video only shows how to create items. I'm looking for a couple set items?
    I've pocked around a bit but can't find any?

    The editor only carries the base items in it's list. if you want to get a set item you have to 'make' it by editing the right stats of the base item itsself.

    Ok. :thanks:
    I altered a charm to give light radius so I can see in the dark. I HATE the dark. Lol. :bang:

    You can create some really cheatsy items if you'd wish - like a small charm that gives +7 to all skills and has a ton of +% Magic find, atack speed, cast speed, move sped - pretty much any mod that is in the game really.

    If you want some 'legit' gear but don't want to spend 15 minutes on re-creating each unique/set item's stats, you could always make a few small charms/items that add to your magic find% and item drop chance, then perform some mephisto/diablo/baal runs (whichever your character can do faster.) this way you should be able to gather up some nice loot pretty quick.

    Personally, i only bother with adding in runes to my incentory so i can have all the cool runewords - there's a handy list of runewords on the b.net site here : http://classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/runewords-110.shtml

    Doesn’t the light radius determine the reaction of the monsters to you? So that more and more distant mobs will be attracted simultaneously to attack you instead of just those closeby?

    Yes, it does. that said, i never worried overly much about light radius in the game - as long as you dont cheat in an item that makes your light radius stupidly large, you should still be able to handle the few extra mobs coming your way.

    Is there a way to make an item non-magical? I've poked around but fail to see that option? I'm trying to find a 4 socketed war scythe to make a "Rift" weapon for my werebear.

    if you pick a weapon from the list and don't assign it any magical modifiers, it should just stay a base white (non-magical) item without you doing anything else ?

    The problem with that is that when you try to give it sockets it gives it 6 which is the max.

    `
    you can edit the sockets under one of the other drop-down options - i forget how exactly, but it is possible.
    sadly i dont have the program installed on my new rig, so you're going to have to find the option by yourself.

    One of the problems with using a Jah rune instead of an Eth rune is a 50 level wait.:1eye:

    So if a put 2 Eth runes in it will it treat it for the 25% twice or will it treat it as a 50%. Or will it just treat it one time at 25%
