I got a few questions about the game.


  • How can I identify items? I just killed the Skeleton King and got some Witch Doctor loot that I can't identify mad.gif
  • If I choose multiple runes, do they add up? IE. if I get the Spider Queen and the Leaping Spiders runes for WD does the Spider Queen spawn leaping spiders or regular spiders?
  • Are there mana potions redface.gif

1. Just right click an item to identify it...no need to scrolls like before.

2. I don't believe that runes stack..would be cool though. I'm WD also and right now find the spiders useless.

3. No mana potions.

Thanks, I will come back if I have more questions! tongue.gif

Edit: Just got one, lol.

I'm playing as a Witch Doctor right now and I figured that intelligence increases damage I do with my melee weapons and such, but I don't use them at all. I just shoot fiery bats at guys and throw some spiders on their faces. I don't even know how to use the melee weapon blushsmiley.gif The thing I'm wondering about is that if I increase intelligence using skills and items do my spells do more damage?

Honestly, I am not sure if intelligence effects weapon/skill/spell damage...haven't looked that close. But, every skill you equip does damaged based off the damage of whatever weapon you are holding. You should be able to unequip a skill and it will go to use the weapon you are holding. I did that once and it didn't work that well beings WD is not meant for hand to hand.

So, you still want to equip better weapons when you find them beings your skill damage is based off that...even if you don't actually use the weapon itself.

int is the dmg increasing stat for WD so you want to get a lot of those plus +dmg stats to increase dps. the weapons that you hold are...for display lol you dont really use whatever you are holding. i mean if you have a knife, you dont really stab stuff with it.

Sold out EVERYWHERE and prices have jumped up from £30 on amazon last week to £50 now.

I flat out refuse to pay £50 for a PC game.

so you found the bow quiver combination better than crossbow shield?

do you play solo though?


I play solo so I kind of like to play it safe tongue.gif. I checked the armor section, at this moment, with the shield I take about 6% less dmg, not sure if that's big or not. (but then I get ~15% block chance ie evasion on top of that)

I suppose it depends more now which kind of weapon I got at the moment (ie bow / crossbow) is strongest, so maybe I should keep the best shield and best quiver I can find and just switch between setups when I get a new best weapon?

with the amount of ability the DH has to immobilize enemies i found its more of an advantage to have either a higher damage, or faster firing rate which i get with the bow and quiver. i usually just jump into a group of enemies knock them back with the fourth ability and stone, then blast off the element arrows with the electricity stone, usually it will drop any group and with the jewelery i have, i get health for every kill.
If i get pinned i drop a caltrop and just jump away. enemies end up stoned and i blast em some more.

Every point of INT will increase your damage by 1.0%. Hover over the stat in the character panel for info.

Also, I'd suggest everyone goes into Gameplay Options and turns on Advanced Skill Tooltips. So you get an idea of each skill's actual damage.

what do you guys think about AH? is it a good thing or a bad thing?

im kinda raging a bit because i am taking my time training haedrig to get some gears and then i see my friends all skipping haedrig and just buy stuff from AH. im disgusted because it is like taking a shortcut to get instant gears. i got rare stuff but man, no where near as the stuff found in AH.
