Can someone tell me what "WTS" and "WTB" mean when trading?

Also, is there a way to know the approximate price of an item? For instance, a specific level 1 skill gem?

WTS means want to sell and WTB means want to buy.

Hey Malice

I read through the whole forum and compiled a video with all the points ,took a bit of time but got it done . Here is part 1


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blBlDjvmCyM

Nice job on the first video, however the second one got some things a bit wrong:

- It does not matter whether gems are socketed in weapons or armour, arc + increased critical strikes will be the same in both a weapon and an armour piece. All that matters is that they are linked.

- Flat Added damage from the Added Lightning Damage gem will work regardless of whether the linked skill already does lightning damage or not. I see what you were getting at, eg. Added Fire Damage (which adds a percentage of physical damage as fire) would be useless if used on arc, since arc does no physical damage. But gems like added lightning, added cold, and added chaos say something like Adds 10-20 Cold Damage. These gems will work with any damage-dealing spell or attack (but not skills that don't deal damage, like auras and curses).

- Socket colours are weighted based on the attribute requirements of the item they appear on, not the player's attributes. Items requiring STR are more likely to get red sockets, items requiring DEX & INT are more likely to get green and blue sockets, etc.

it seems this game doesnt support low level players(maybe because not to attrack bots) for gaining transmutations/alterations and other lower currency.. drops are the same at low level and at high level zones(as low level character and as high level character)

any more information on this topic? id like to get a bit richer at least at the start till lvl 30-40 or so..

If you pick up and sell every magic & rare item you find, that can provide a decent (but not outstanding) amount of basic orbs for use while levelling.

I wouldn't recommend identifying them all though, you will run out of scrolls fast. Just identify things that might be an upgrade for you, and sell the rest unidentified.

Then if you find yourself with a surplus of transmutations, you can start using them on every potentially useful white item you find (like flasks). Or you can sell them for scrolls if you're low on scrolls.
Hey, where can i find an updated list of orbs ratios for the default league?
Is there a way to toggle ilvl showing in the tooltip? the chat window method is annoying.

--link removed-- is more or less accurate for the default league.

No, I've asked for that a few times but GGG doesn't like the idea.
I'd like to see that (and some other things) in 'extended' mode = hover a cursor + alt key.

Some item descriptions are just overloaded with info as of now (skill gems)
Others are lacking some additional info.

Information should be given on more then one level.
First - only basic info - basic tooltip - hovering cursor over item.
Second - additional info (ilvl fits here) - cursor + alt for example
Third (optional) - full info, most likely a button linking to official page with everything possible (like lvl values of skills and so on).
How do people get such ridiculous amounts of currency? I've been stuck with the same terrible gear for the past 15 levels (3L chest and bow) and I desperately need a 4L, preferably a 5L chest. I look around the forums and 4L rare chests are going for nearly 1 exalted with decent rolls (+50 health, ~500 armor or evasion.) I'm level 65 and my total bankroll amounts to about 2 exalted orbs! I've been farming for the past few days and I just can't find currency drops or uniqus that can be vendored for chaos orbs.

Collect loot and turn them in to vendors for various orbs or items. See:

- The Exiled Sale Recipe Book (spoilers) - Good place to go to understand how to get Chaos orbs, Alchemy orbs, etc. for crafting and improving your gear.
- Your Crafting Resource Guide -Learn more about crafting.
