View Full Version : Item question

03-04-2007, 10:06 PM
Are epic items that are acquired during normal Act I typically obsolete by Act II? For example, I had Heartpierce and Soul Carver for the second half of Act I, and nothing in stores came close. Now, at the first merchants in Egypt, it looks like I can purchase all kinds of stuff better than my Blue stuff. It's annoying that i have to give up my cool named weapons :(

I guess, my question is, is this typical? Will the Epic items that drop in Act II last longer?

That depends on what drops.

Some weapons like Telliam's Will are good enough to last for a while.

You think that's bad going from Normal 1 to Normal 2? Try going from Normal 3 (or 4) into Epic 1. The items are a totally different class there than they are in Normal.

I figured there was some randomness to it, I just didn't want to sell them if i was "missing" something about them, like some stat i was looking at wrong that made them way better than i thought they were. It's also just much more enjoyable to kill things with a named weapon.
