But if just swap to slayers she'll die within seconds. (side notes i have 190% fire pierce so resistances shouldn't be the culprit.)

~Edited to fix wording~

Oh okay that explains your confusion. The priestesses have a high avoid percentage, probably at least 2/3. Try mind flaying them and you will notice it more clearly. I guess you did not notice it with slayers since 5 of them shoot pretty much a continuous stream of projectiles to always affect her hp bar, whereas single cast misses are more visible.

A D2 SP game is basically a MP game with a sort of local-only server.

In SP, you want the "client" part (the part that draws graphics on your screen, and stuff) to update right after the "server" part has updated. If you let the two parts run out of sync, you'll risk the game hiccuping continuously. This has to do with the fact that windows (and almost any other desktop OS) does time-sharing between (parts of) programs on a best-effort basis. I.e., no guarantees on timing.

When playing MP however, the whole in-sync idea is out of the window anyway, because the server is a bunch of milliseconds away. So you just let the client run at top speed, hoping it'll update ASAP when it gets a message from the server.

Basically the engine animations etc all work at 25fps in both modes, regardless of how many frames are rendered

Just one minor clarification, no-ND skills can hit more than once per frame (Eg: Singularity, Obliterate). Depends on the skill in question.

No, the game uses 25 FPS for all things (same goes or attack/block/etc speeds and thus their breakpoints). I've also never heard of the game running at a higher FPS. Note that this is the game engine itself and not what your computer might be capable of. I've seen my FPS as high as 50 and as low as 3, but the game always uses 25 for its calculations.

But are these skills hitting multiple times a frame, or do they layer multiple attacks on top of each other? The end effect might be multiple hits per frame, but technically it is 1 hit per frame per attack. At least this was how I always thought such skills worked (kinda like layering multiple Flamestrikes on one spot).

Not sure what you mean by attack here. If you're saying each missile generated by a skill can only hit once per frame, sure. I just wanted to point out that one cast of a skill can have overlapping sets of missiles with no ND that can all hit in the same frame.

How to make your barbarian Destruction proof?

Post by TheAnyKey on Wed Dec 10, 2014 9:49 am

I am level 118, have several 100k armor, around 10k life, all resistances on 75% and use bear stance. Still I can't even survive in act 1 Destruction. Even most of Terror is far too hard for me. Even the cow level in Terror is impossible without just leeching. Any ideas?

TheAnyKey: What is your build? If you have 100k armor, it is far too low for playing melee barb, especially with Bear Stance. You should put points into spirit guide, upgrade your gear to t6 or use Runemaster uber skill. Also, leeching is reduced in higher difficulties.

Q: If I want to use D2SE, so I can play SP on 1.12 with multires and on TSW, should I install multiress and plugy into Mod folder of D2SE? Thanks
