  1. I've just been doing p8 chaos sanctuary. I'm level 97 and my napkin math tells me it'll take 10.6 hours to get to 98 and then another 15.4 hours to get to 99.
  2. If I recall correctly, using a magic sunder charm with a hammerdin isn't even really worth it. I believe there's only one item in the game that reduces enemy magic resistance and it isn't something you'd be likely to use on a build so you'd be taking a massive hit to your magic res just to reduce magic immunes to 95% resistance. Unless you need to clear Baal wave 2 it's probably still preferable for a hammerdin to just skip magic immune monsters. EDIT: I'm in no way saying a hammerdin isn't worth using. They're still a top tier class. Only saying that the magic sunder charm doesn't really benefit them.
  3. To the best of my knowledge, it won't work that way. The level 99 trophies pop when you get to level 99. Not by being level 99. Therefore you'd only be able to achieve them once with an online character that can be played on both ps4 and ps5 since you can't back up saves. And offline play with back ups can't cross progress between ps4 and ps5.
  4. No. You need 20 ears in your inventory for the trophy to pop.
  5. Only Macabre Mark (20 ears) is strictly online. Obtaining a Standard of Heroes can be done offline.
  6. At the moment, it looks like this will be for strictly online play. Even with the inherent risks of online play (disconnects, lack of backing up save files) I will still think that using Terror Zones is the absolute best way to get to level 99 now. Hopefully, they can soon patch them into the offline single player experience. I'm considering participating in the next ladder season as a HC Necromancer. Given the risks of online play, I think a Necro might be the safest character class to try and get to level 99 using the Terror Zones online. All in all, I think this is a fantastic patch for anyone trying to go for the D2R platinum.
  7. Unfortunately, there are not distinct save files on the PS5 so the duplication method is much more complicated on the PS5. I, myself, have not gotten it to work. It involves playing offline and utilizing the game's autosave system at specific times. The relevant thread is as follows. Good luck.

  8. In my opinion, playing the PS4 version on a PS5 console is the best method. Fast load times from the console and easier duping due to discrete save files. Save files are only transferable for online characters at which point the save file is stored on Blizzard servers so no duping. Duping can only be done offline. Lastly, the trophy pops when the character levels up to 99 and not just by being 99 so no grinding one character online for both stacks.
  9. There just has to be something in the setup that's wrong for me because despite my best efforts I just can't get it to work. I even had a mishap where I got the dupe to work in reverse duplicating the items from my shared stash that I put in my personal inventory. No luck replicating that though as I wasn't even trying to do it.
  10. Awesome, thanks for letting me know. I'll keep trying. If I can figure out how to make it work on my end I'll add what information I can here.
  11. Hmmm, tried again to no success even with a bit of a buffer period after the pentagram disappears? Have y'all tried to do it with a fresh level 1 character?
  12. I haven't had the opportunity to try. I've also never gotten it to work at all. I'm new to the ps5 stack. Has it work again for you?
  13. Thanks for the responses, @RavensRuin and @Rando-Calrisian-! I'll keep tinkering to see it I can get it to work. I'm glad to hear the confirmation that it does indeed still work so I hope you can get it to work again as well, Ravens.
  14. I think I must be doing something wrong. I'm attempting to do this on a completely fresh character to verify that it works before I continue. I've followed the video above. Preparation Load character and prepare inventory with items to duplicate. Save and exit. Load back into character to confirm personal inventory is correct. Save and exit. Close D2R application. Back up save file. Turn off internet. Duplication Load character. Run around town until save icon appears and disappears. Save and exit ensuring that a new save icon appeared when doing so. Wait in character select menu until save icon appears again and disappears. Load character and transfer items from personal inventory to shared stash. Wait until save icon appears and disappears. Save and exit. Close D2R application. Repeat steps 5-8. I'm finding that on Step 9 when I load back into my character after the first transfer that all the items have successfully been returned to my personal inventory but none of them stayed in the shared stash. As I said, I'm doing this on a completely fresh account and character (Act 1 Level 1 Necromancer who hasn't killed even one monster) which may be the issue but previous comments have indicated that act shouldn't matter. I'm not sure if the lack of the Normal, Nightmare, or Hell difficulty selection menu when loading the character makes a difference either. If anyone has any thoughts or opinions on this, I'd appreciate any advice I can get. With the release of the ladder, I'm beginning to get that itch to play this again and go for the PS5 platinum but I'd like to ensure that duplication works before pursuing this. Thanks y'all!
