Yep, in the HC league. I was mass clearing out pages of skill gems that I probably never needed and I think I sold them I can only find one now, and the cheapest they are is 2ex.

Haha goddamn perma leagues. I have probably 6 tabs of unsorted red gems from back when, I bet I've got at least 20 IIQ gems

Really? Steam says 1.5 for me, or are you using the standalone client? Also if I follow that bow guide linked in the OP blindly will that give a reasonably easy path back into the game until I can catch up with the meta?

Gotta keep in mind IIR/IIQ have opportunity costs; having both IIR/IIQ slottable meant skills that require fewer links to get to good levels of damage had an unfair advantage in the long term. They've pared down the ways to get IIR/IIQ a lot since the early days and each time it's been an improvement (in closed beta you could roll increased item rarity/increased item quantity on weapons, and there were a couple increased item rarity passives on the passive tree.)

Good news, Elemental Hit's mana cost at level 20 went from 19 to 12.

The patch notes mention an "increase" in radius, not "more" radius which is a fairly significant difference.

Did you play 1.1? non-crit Arc in 1.1-1.2 was cray-cray. You'd 4link it in a Vertex or that cheap +1 helmet I cant remember the name of and just own the game.

The numbers on arc seem pretty good. You get the 5th chain at level 12 or something(and 7th at level 20), and the damage that it used to do at level 22, it now does at level 20.

I downloaded an item filter this one, but it doens't seem to work properly.

For example I want ti to show Portal scrolls, and in the text file it says:

Show
BaseType "Portal Scroll"
PlayAlertSound 9 100
SetFontSize 25
SetBackgroundColor 0 0 0 100

Which looks like it should work. But portal scrolls don't show up unless I press alt to see everything, although the sound does seem to play. Any ideas?

E: Also if I want it to always show chests what do I add?

You could try removing the 100 from the SetBackgroundColor line. The fourth number is optional and sets the transparency of the item (0 = invisible, 255 = completely opaque), so it's possible that they are showing up but you can't see them because they're mostly transparent.

Doesn't make any difference. At least when I drop one to test it. Is it only supposed to work for stuff dropped from monsters that's never been picked up?

E: OK I seem to have found the problem. It does work, but only for a bout a second or so. And by the time I have finnished killing something it has all vanished. Is there a timeout setting somewhere?

You have to set your own game to show all items in the options. There's 2 ways to use item filters. If you tell your game to show items on the ground, it will only show items you have filtered to show. Then holding alt will also show all the items that got filtered out in case you want to check if there might actually be something you want. If you tell your game to use "hold button to see items," then it will use default behavior normally (show all currency for a second when it drops, otherwise show nothing at all), and then holding alt will apply your filter.

I use the latter and hold alt most of the time I'm playing out of pure force of habit from D2, but most people just use the former setting.

not visually, no, but the only amulets that drop normally are tier 1. higher tiers only come from using talismans on the alter and will always be one tier higher than the five amulets you used to summon it.
