Tips & Tricks

Recommended Posts

Most of us have played D2 for quite a while.  We've started, quit, started again and throughout the time we've learned things AND forgotten things.  I have been re-learning things since starting to play again so I decided to start a tips & tricks guide from all the info gathered from the OD channel, members and other forums.  Please feel free to add your tricks and maybe we'll get a sticky going.

 

Ctrl+m = turns music off

type \home clan OD sets your sign in channel to the OD channel

use of nature peace ring makes it so Nth can't splat you PLUS the experience killing him is equal to a baal run

shift + life potion gives your merc life

\w or \whisper *account name of player lets you talk in private with someone

 

 

 

 

Putting Color in Your Profile (thank you Pops!)
Type the letter (ÿc) + required number and write your text.
[It's more easy to copy the first command (ÿc) with CTRL+C], then CTRL+v to copy to your bnet profile

 

ÿc;  =purple
ÿc0  = white
ÿc1  =red
 ÿc2  =blue
ÿc3  =green
ÿc4  =gold
ÿc5  =grey
ÿc6  = black
ÿc7  =gold
ÿc8  =orange
ÿc9   =yellow
ÿc:  =dark green
ÿ is made with: ALT + 152

Here's one.

Ingame type /fps  - It will show you your ping and frames per second. Useful if your connect isn't always reliable and you wanna go duel. High ping will screw you.

@PoPs(OD) Huge thank you to Pops who taught me the easy way to whisper while sitting in channel.  You click on the person you want to whisper to, make them GLOW, then type your whisper, then hit the whisper button.  It's like magic AND it looks pretty.

 

Also, when somebody whispers you, you don't have to type their whole account name to response, just hit /r and your message.  But be careful, because if somebody else whispers in between, you might whisper to the wrong person.

you can also do /m *account to private message

use of nature peace ring makes it so Nth can't splat you PLUS the experience killing him is equal to a baal run

i believe ^ is wrong, about 85% sure you get xp equal to killing baal, not a full baal run

 Great bot tip.  In channel, you type .anyruneword and the bot tells you what's needed to make it.

I suppose i could drop a "tip or perhaps call it a trick"  xD     Most people know this, but i thought i would add it anyways.  If you are using window mode to play D2 you can make your character auto-teleport by holding down on teleport and dragging your mouse icon off an out of the window an waiting a sec or two then release an take your mouse icon back to window screen and character will use teleport non-stop until u run out of mana. This is useful when rushing an just about everything else.  Hope this helps   xD  much love to OD !
