If you find an item and you are going to sell it, repair
it first so it is worth more gold. This increases the price of
the item selling by 50%. You could save about 1,000 to 2,500 gold
early in the game. Note: The more valuable an item is, the higher
the price you can sell it for after repairing.
Note: When repairing items to sell for gold pay attention to the
sell price before you repair. The maximum sale price is 25,000
gold. If your item is worth 25,000 gold before repair, do not
waste your gold repairing it. It will not increase the sell value
When the secret Cow level is empty of cows or there are only a
small number remaining, go in and pick up items. Go to town and
sell them. Return to the Cow level and pick up the items again

Get any item
Use the following trick to get almost any desired item.
Go to the person in your highest Act that gambles (for example,
Gheed or Jamella). Go to gamble. A list of good items will appear.
If you do not see anything desirable, exit, then go to gamble
again. There will be a new list of items for sale. Repeat the
process until you have found what you want.
Go into the Blood Moor in Nightmare mode. Fight some
zombies, quill rats and the little red demons. They will be extremely
difficult, but when you kill a simple zombie Boss, red demon Boss
or quill rat Boss you will get a rar item (for example, a unique,
gold or blue). Also, the rouge encampment has good weapons.
Use the following trick to get good weapons, armor, and jewelry.
Use the -act5 code to start with a level 33 character in
Act 5. You can still go out and fight enemies, and apparently
do quests in Act 5. After assigning points to stats and abilities,
go out and fight enemies in the Bloody Foothills. It is a good
idea to stay close to the Barbarians at first, because even at
level 33 you will be weak. Take whatever items the enemies drop.
You will find that you can get some decent items. It is good enough
to keep you alive, and some of it sells high enough so that you
can collect the gold to buy whatever desured. TP back to town
whenever your inventory is full and keep well stocked on ID scrolls.
Cain will identify items for you, but he charges. You can also
do quests, but will not get credit for them.
Easy experience and items
Create a Sorceress, then max out her Firewall. Trade
some items for a good Tarnhelm, some ChaceGuards, and other +%
to Magic Find items. You Sorceress should be at about level 45.
Then, go to Channel Cows/Cowz and wait for someone to make a game.
Join that game and Firewall all the cows. Your experience will
increase and you will get unique items. Do not duel or do anything
dangerous with this sorceress, as you will get killed.
In v1.10, the Countess (Act 1) always gives at least
one rune. This is excellent for getting the Tal Rune (75 poison
damage in 5 seconds). Put two of them in a weapon for a good weapon.
At the Tower Cellar level 5, kill the Boss as many times as desired.
You will always get one to two Runes.
More money for items
The easiest way to increase the value of an item is
to have it identified by a Identify Scroll or by Deckard Cain.
The value will immediately increase.
Unlimited items and money
Note: This trick requires another player whom you can
- 1. Make a copy of all of your save files and put then on your desktop or another folder that is easily accessible.
- 2. Start a game with your friend. This can be done over the Internet or LAN. Make sure the person copying is not a host.
- 3. Drop all of the items that you wish to copy.
- 4. Leave and copy your files into the save game folder.
- 5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 to copy more.
If you die and lose all your weapons, armor, and items,
press [Esc] and select "Save and Exit" before
you doing anything else. Reload your game, and there should be
a dead body next to you. Examine it, and the message <your
name>s carcass or something similar will appear. After
you do examine it, you will get all your equipment and items back.
Note: This may not work with gold.
Imbuing items and adding sockets to items
These two actions are rewards offered by the smiths
in Act I and V as you complete their related quests. It may be
wise not to use them immediately afterwards. Keep them for later
difficulty levels, where you can find exceptional and elite items
(such as the Ornate Plate armor or Mesh Boots). An imbued elite
piece of body armor with added sockets can prove to be extremely
useful. This applies for single player mode, and also may work
in multi-player. Note: Some higher stats you can get after an
imbue can only be obtained only after your character reaches a
In single player mode, when you get to imbue an item, save the
game before doing this. Exit to the title screen, then press [Alt]+
[Tab] to display the Windows Desktop. Create a backup of
your saved game files. They are all the files starting with the
name of your character, with different extensions. If this does
not work, exit the game completely before making the backup. Reload
the saved game, then let Charsi imbue the item for you. If you
are not satisfied with the result, overwrite the saved files with
the ones that you have backed up and repeat the process until
you accept the results.
When you are about to finish all of your scrolls that
are in a tome, you can fill the tome again by selling it to someone
then immediately buying it again. It will be full and it will
cost less than if you bought twenty scrolls or a new tome.
Safe gold storage
If your sash is full of gold and you do not want to lose everything if you get killed, drop all your gold beside your sash or somewhere in town. You can go out and fight without worrying, but must pick up your gold again before you save and exit.
Note: Items will disappear if you leave them next to your box
and they sit there long enough while you are in a different zone.
It does not appear to have anything to do with how many items
drop off monsters; it has to do with time.
Transfer items from different characters in a single realm
First, create a game with the character that you want
to relieve of some or all of their items. Name it something you
can remember and make sure to password it. Go around a little
in the created game. For example, go to the inner cloister or
something similar. For some reason, this extends the life of an
uninhabited game. Then, drop all the items and money that you
want to transfer. This depends on the game holding your game after
you leave. Try to leave and enter with your new character as fast
as possible. Type in the game and password in the find box, and
you should enter the created game with all the items on the floor.
Note: This is an easy way to get the Cube. Just have a your high
level character do this, and you can have Cubes all around.
