Its far too early to have a Price Guide in place noting prices will fluctuate alot in the opening weeks of D2R with no stock of gear (and under supply and over demand) as well as the upcoming Ladder release looming over us. However, for new and old players, this is a guide on what is sought after in the game and therefore you can make profit from. Special thanks to everyone that helped with previous versions of this including: Spaz, Jayzboi, NiRo_O , Greendale & Sire.

I have included the words "Jackpot" after certain items noting in the first week of the game these items will cost a bomb and can make you rich (1000.00fg-100,000.00fg per item).

Finally a quick comment to new players: Set Items are not the godlike items compared to...other games. Instead, Runewords and specific Unique, Rare and Crafted Items are what you should be looking in this game.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Runes
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Runes, when combined together, form Rune Words. Some Runewords stand over this game (Enigma, Grief) and are highly sought after. As you dont need magic find
for runes to drop, your first decent item(s) will likely be runes (such as Stealth, Insight, Spirit, Lore, Smoke, Lionheart, Harmony, Honor etc).

Typically found at Normal Countess:

El
Eld
Tir
Nef
Eth
Ith
Tal
Ral

Also found at Nightmare Countess:

Ort
Thul
Amn
Sol
Shael
Dol
Hel
Io

Also found at Hell Countess:

Lum
Ko
Fal
Lem
Pul
Um
Mal
Ist (From this Rune onwards, each Rune is highly desired and will net you alot of fg).
Gul (not popular!)
Vex
Ohm
Lo (Highly Desired for Grief Runeword).

and then the High Runes you need to be lucky to find in Hell:

Sur
Ber (Jackpot!)
Jah (Jackpot!)
Cham
Zod

Note:

1. The Countess drops more runes if there is only 1 player in the game.

2. Its worth commenting that destroying Mephisto's Soulstone at the Hellforge will net you medium runes (up to Gul i think?), so if you have the ability between friends, rushing
multiple characters to Hell Act4 is an option for making profit in the first few days.

3. Lo and above are very rare, with the Chaos Sanctuary in Hell being a prime location for finding them, while Hell Cows has density higher than other areas (but less likely to drop runes in comparison to the Chaos Sanctuary).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Runewords
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is not an exhaustive List of Runewords, I have merely listed some of the most sought after and realistic in the first days/week of the game.
Note: Pretty sure the runes are right, but just in case, refer to the Arreat Summit before attempting to make your Runeword.

Low Runes Rune Words

Cheap PvP Gear
Honor [ Amn, El, Ith, Tir, Sol ] - Cheap Weapon for Pala.
Memory [ Lum, Io, Sol, Eth ] - Sorc Switch for PvP

Pride [ Cham, Sur, Io, Lo ] THE Merc Weapon for Amazons.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Misc
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Usually Misc stuff is left at the bottom of such lists, however in this instance I have it near the top as it is so relevant in the early days of D2R.
Therefore, without further ado:

Quests/Misc Services
All Useful Quests
All Way Points
Hell Forge Quest
Socket Quest

Charsi Imbue Quest:

As you really only need 3 mods to spawn, I feel that imbueing Eth Matri Javs (you need to be level 74 or higher for 450ed to spawn) is the only item you should really imbue noting it has the highest chance of producing a JACKPOT item for you. i.e. You are looking for 4xx% Enhanced Damage, Eth, Replenish Quantity. Imbueing something like this will net you 10000+ fg or even higher if it spawns with additional mods (Skills, Attack Speed, Inc Quantity etc). Before Bots Javelins like this went for 25000+ fg on JSP.

Normal Rush
Nightmare Rush
Hell Rush
Norm-Hell Rush (typically the most sought after version of rush).

Cows Leveling Service
Diarun Leveling Service
Baalrun Leveling Service

Key Sets
Organ Sets

40 Perfect Gems - [for Rerolling charms] - Lower quantities will also sell, particulary if PTopaz as people want those early on for MF.
Baal charm with proof (in order to roll/reroll Grand Charms looking for skill + 41-45life)

Craft Packs:

40 Perfect Saphires 40 Jewels 40 Ort Runes [For crafting Knockback Gloves]
40 Perfect Rubies 40 Jewels 40 Eth Runes [For crafting Repl Life Boots] - Highly Sought after in PvP.
40 Perfect Rubies 40 Jewels 40 Nef Runes [For crafting Crushing Blow Gloves]
40 Perfect Rubies 40 Jewels 40 Tal Runes [For crafting Open Wound Belts]
40 Perfect Amethyst 40 Jewels 40 Thul Runes [For crafting Max Mana Boots]
40 Perfect Amethyst 40 Jewels 40 Ith Runes [For crafting 10% FCR Belts]
40 Perfect Amethyst 40 Jewels 40 Ral Runes [For crafting 20% FCR Amulets Belts] - Highly Sought after in PvP.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Charms
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Annihilus Small charm

The first Anni's will be very expensive (Jackpot Item), regardless of their stats and we don't yet know when they will first appear or the criteria for them to drop.
20/20/10 is perfect (AKA Jackpot) and everyone wants an Anni so the prices will be very high as soon as they appear (and for some time as alot of people will want to keep their Stones of Jordan).

Gheeds Fortune

While not as "needed" as Anni and Torches, Gheeds Fortune provides an excellent boost to Magic Find and is a staple in MF Inventories. Therefore everyone
will want one. 40/160/15 is perfect.

Hellfire Torch

The first Torch's will be very expensive, regardless of their stats, the prices will be very high from the get go (and for some time).
20/20/25 is perfect (AKA Jackpot).

Magic Charms

A note on Magic Charms - Any charm, regardless of size (i.e. Small, Large, Grand), with Life or Life + Mana or Life + Res, will sell immediately noting the
first few days of the ladder is all about improving your characters survivability.

Small Charms:

Small Charms (Look for as close to these as possible)
3 frw 5 res
3 frw 11 res
3 frw 3max 20 ar (Jackpot Item)
3 max 20 ar 5 fhr
3 Max 20 ar 15 Life (LLD)
3 max 20 ar 20 Life (HLD)

20 life 5 res

15 life 12 mana (LLD)
451 psn damage
175 psn 20 life
20 life
7 mf
5 res

Large Charms:

Bluntly, Large Charms are not very desired noting they cannot have the Modifier +Skill and are not as good as small charms.

Grand Charms:

Grand Charms have the ability to spawn, or be rolled (via Cube) with +1 to a Skill Tab.
The ideal Grand Charm would look like: +1 (skill) | 45 Life, however even without spawning with life, Skiller Grand Charms will be in high demand from the
get go, particularly Sorc (Fire, Light, Cold) and Paladin (Combat) Grand Charms.

What to Look for/roll via Cube recipe:

<Class> Grand Charm (+1 Skill) with Str/Dex/Fhr/Life (up to a maximum of 45). Some Classes (Sorc; Paladin) will have a higher value at the start
(Supply vs Demand)

1 Fire / 1 Light / 1 Cold / 1 PC 45 Life - Jackpot Item

Alternative Grand Charms:

as close to this as possible:

10max 76ar 45 life

or

132ar 45life

A note on set items: This is not Diablo 3, so complete sets are not in high demand. However, some items from particular sets are in high demand, in particular
Tal Rasha Armor and Tal Rasha Amulet.


Sigon Set (Low Level twink gear - quite popular).
Aldurs Set
Griswolds Set
Immortal King Set

4 Socket Crystal Sword / Broad Sword / Long Sword (for Spirit Runeword)
5 Socket Scepter 3 Hammer 3 Concentration (for Honor Runeword)
5 Socket Scepter 3 Foh 3 Conviction (for Honor Runeword)

A Note on Ethereal Weapons:

Some Runewords have the indestructible Mod and the durability of items does not reduce on Merc's. Therefore, Ethereal bases can be good for certain runewords
but for self use (example: Oath Swords / Axes (4 sox), Death Swords/Axes (5sox) or Insight PoleArms/Staves (4 Sox). There dont be quick to ignore such bases
if they drop for you. Most players will want an Insight as soon as possible, regardless of whether it spawns in a Normal, Exceptional, or Elite Base.

Eth Highland Sword 0 or 4 Sox
Eth Small Crescent 0 or 4 Sox

Rare

Rare Weapons have to be compared to Grief. Most don't compare well. What you are looking for is a weapon like this:
250-300ed 30IAS Fools Mod 1-2 Sox Eth (Repl, or Zod) in an Elite Base.

Just about every rare bow sux compared to Faith Runeword. Dont bother with the Bow if the level requirements are 50 or higher.

For LLD / MLD you are looking for:

LLD: 120%-165% ED, Attack Speed, Eth Repl. (Bows cant be Eth so dont need repl).

Examples of optimal Bases: Harpoons, Double Bow, Ashwood Bow, Exec, Naga, BattleHammer, Grim Scythe

MLD: 400-450% ED, Attack Speed, Eth Repl. (Bows cant be Eth so dont need repl).
Optimal Bases: Shadow Bow, Matri Bow, Matri Javs, Stygians, Highland Blade, Battle Hammer, Tyrant Club & Reinforced Mace

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
14. Amulets
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unique

Cats eye
Highlords Wrath
Mara's (Jackpot)
Metalgrid
Seraphs Hymn

Magic

+3 Skill Tab + 10 FCR (Cold, Light, Fire, PB, Ele, Trap, PC, WC)
+3 Skill Tab + 100 Life (Cold, Light, Fire, PB, Ele, Trap, PC, WC)

Rare

Rare Amulets can be some of the best items in the game. you are looking for +2 Class, typcally FCR, Life, Mana and Stats (Str / Dex).

Craft

Craft Amulets can be some of the best items in the game. you are looking for +2 Class, 15-20FCR, Life, Mana and Stats (Str / Dex).
dont bother trying to craft one for LLD / MLD (rares are almost always better and you need to be a funky level to craft for MLD).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
15. Rings
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unique Rings

Bul Kathos Wedding Band
Nagelring
Raven Frost
Stone of Jordan (Jackpot)
Wisp Projector
Dwarf star

Rare Rings for PvP

You are looking for Damage, Stats, Life, Mana Res on rings whether LLD or HLD.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Finally,

If you cant find Magic Find Gear or are struggling to get to Baal Hell / or to get better gear / fg, or simply don't know what to do, here are some options:

1. Consider doing Baal Runs in Normal until you Level 45 & Baal Runs in Nightmare until 75. Consider doing Ancients, Baalruns and Hell mode in general with friends.
2. If you cant find Magic find gear, don't worry, you can sell as item bases (Armors and Weapons) via Normal Cows (1 handed Swords), Nightmare Cows (Runes) and Hell Cows (Alot of stuff!).
3. If you don't like Magic finding you can also rush people for a fee. There will be many people looking for rushes in the first few weeks.
4. If you don't like Magic finding you can also power level people for a fee. This can be done via Cows, Baal Runs and Dia Runs.
5. If you don't like killing stuff, you can always just craft. Crafted Belts and Amulets can net you a Jackpot Item.
6. If you are struggling in any part of Hell consider leveling to 90. It helps. Each Level over 96 takes a long time so only do this if you really have a lot of time on your hands.
7. If you are struggling with Mephisto MF'ing in Hell, consider doing Mephisto Runs in Nightmare in order to find upgrades / stuff to sell in order to be able to do Hell MF.
8. There are certain areas in Hell that can drop every time in the Game. The easiest such place is known as the Pits in Act1. Feel free to Google / Youtube it.
9. If you don't like to Magic Find, Gold Find is also a thing. Travincal in Hell is great for this (and is not bad for finding high runes either).
10. When all else fails, and arguably even better then all of the above, look for stuff on D2JSP that is being sold under priced, and resell it at its value. This is in particular for LLD, MLD and HLD PvP Items.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LLD = Low Level Dueling (Level 30 Dueling Bracket)
MLD = Mid Level Dueling (level 49 Dueling Bracket)
HLD = High Level Dueling (PvP Bracket at High Level)

Runes:

El-Thul - 1fg
Amn - 2fg
Sol - 2fg
Shael - 2fg
Dol - 1fg
Hel - Ko - 5fg

<<Version 0.2>>

Its far too early to have a Price Guide in place noting prices will fluctuate alot in the opening weeks of D2R with no stock of gear (and under supply and over demand) as well as the upcoming Ladder release looming over us. However, for new and old players, this is a guide on what is sought after in the game and therefore you can make profit from. Special thanks to everyone that helped with previous versions of this including: Spaz, Jayzboi, NiRo_O , Greendale & Sire.

I have included the words "Jackpot" after certain items noting in the first week of the game these items will cost a bomb and can make you rich (1000.00fg-100,000.00fg per item).

Finally a quick comment to new players: Set Items are not the godlike items compared to...other games. Instead, Runewords and specific Unique, Rare and Crafted Items as well as charms are what you should be looking in this game.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Runes
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Runes, when combined together, form Rune Words. Some Runewords stand over this game (Enigma, Grief) and are highly sought after. As you dont need magic find
for runes to drop, your first decent item(s) will likely be runes (such as Stealth, Insight, Spirit, Lore, Smoke, Lionheart, Harmony, Honor etc).

Typically found at Normal Countess:

El
Eld
Tir
Nef
Eth
Ith
Tal
Ral

Also found at Nightmare Countess:

Ort
Thul
Amn
Sol
Shael
Dol
Hel
Io

Also found at Hell Countess:

Lum
Ko
Fal
Lem
Pul
Um
Mal
Ist (From this Rune onwards, each Rune is highly desired and will net you alot of fg).
Gul (not popular!)
Vex
Ohm
Lo (Highly Desired for Grief Runeword).

and then the High Runes you need to be lucky to find in Hell:

Sur
Ber (Jackpot!)
Jah (Jackpot!)
Cham
Zod

Note:

1. Countess drops more runes if there is only 1 player in the game.

2. I found a Um @ NM Hellforge and up to Gul can drop in Hell. Therefore if you have the ability between friends, rushing multiple characters to Hell Act4 is an option for making profit in the first few days.

3. Lo and above are very rare, with the Chaos Sanctuary in Hell being a prime location for finding them (Found a Zod there), while Hell Cows has density higher than other areas (but less likely to drop runes in comparison to the Chaos Sanctuary - I did find a Ber there though). Another Area of Note would be Travincal (found x2 Lo's in 65 runs).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Runewords
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is not an exhaustive List of Runewords, I have merely listed some of the most sought after and realistic in the first days/week of the game.
Note: Pretty sure the runes are right, but just in case, refer to the Arreat Summit before attempting to make your Runeword.

Low Runes Rune-Words

Cheap PvP Gear
Honor [ Amn, El, Ith, Tir, Sol ] - Cheap Weapon for Pala - You want to look for War Sceptors or Divine Scepters white or 5 Sox with Skills such as: Meditation, Conc, Hammer, Conviction, Foh.
Memory [ Lum, Io, Sol, Eth ] - Sorc Switch for PvP - Look for Staff Bases with +3 Energy Shield. These sell pretty ok for a small window.
Peace [ Shael, Thul, Amn ] - Crit Strike Body Armor for ealy PvM and LLD.

Cheap Leveling Gear
Leaf [ Tir, Ral ] - Day 1 Weapon Item for Leveling. +3 Firebolt is quite useful early on. Can be Shopped from Akara.
LionHeart [ Hel, Lum Fal ] - Stat+Res Armor Day 1
Lore [ Ort, Sol ] - +1 Skill Helmet.
Harmony [ Tir, Ith, Sol, Ko ] - Cheap Bow for Ama. + Damage.
Smoke [ Nef, Lum ] - Starter Armor - 50% all Res - The go-to armor on Day1.
Spirit Weapon and/or Shield [ Tal, Thul, Ort, Amn ] - FCR Items, highly Sought early on, Sword for PvM and LLD; Shield always popular (End Game Item). 4 Sox Crysyal, Long and Broadswords are what you are looking for.
A note On Spirit - it is normal to sell "Spirit (rune) Packs" + Hels in bulk, noting 35% 8Abs 112 Mana is the perfection sought (mods Vary).
Stealth [ Tal, Eth ] - Day1 go-to Item. Very versatile FRW, FCR, FHR. Also used in LLD PvP.

Cheap Uber Gear
Black [ Thul, Io, Nef ] - Cheap Weapon for Smiter Ubers.
Duress [ Shael, Um, Thul - Smiter Armor
Sanctuary [ Ko, Ko, Mal ] - Stack Res Shield, can be used for Ubers and Week 1.
Spirit [ Tal, Thul, Ort, Amn ] - if you can find an Elite Base shield with 3 (Sanctuary) or 4 (Spirit) Sox and +40 Res, it will make Ubers far more manageable sooner.
Treachery [ Shael, Thul, Lem ] - Fade Armor - perfect as stacked Res for Ubers, switch and swap with Duress.

A note on Treachery - it is the best PvM Armor for a Merc (not Fortitude ok). If you find a base armor white, try to roll it 3 sox with Cube Recipe (not Larzuk ok), or if its 3 sox, it sells quite well in first few weeks.

Cheap MF Gear
Insight [ Ral, Tir, Tal, Sol ] - Merc Weapon - Highly Sought.
Eth 4 Sox Polearms Sell very well for the first month of ladder. CV has quite high strength requirements so Tresher Etc. are valued more (ppl usually make Infinity in the Treshers, a very expensive runeword).

Rhyme [ Shael, Eth ] - Starter Shield
Wealth [ Lem, Ko, Tir ] - Fantastic Starter Armor for Magic Find and End Game Armor for Gold Find. the Day1-Day7 Go-To MF Armor. If your merc has one too, his kills combine the total MF on you and him.

1 High Rune, Rune Words

Beast [ Ber, Tir, Um, Mal, Lum ] Sought after Weapon.
Chains of Honor [ Dol, Um, Ber, Ist ] Highly Sought Armor after Enigma.
Chaos [ Fal, Ohm, Um ] - PvP Assassin Weapon.
Grief BA or PB [ Eth, Tir, Lo, Mal, Ral ] THE D2 Weapon, almost impossible to beat.
Hoto [ Ko, Vex, Pul, Thul ] Caster Weapon, Highly Sought early on.

2 High Runes Rune Words

Call to Arms [ Amn, Mal, Ral, Ist, Ohm ] (6/6/4 is a Jackpot Item) Unless its for Self Use you might want to consider selling the Ist/Ohm).
Enigma [ Jah, Ith, Ber ] (Jackpot Item, Note that Jah and Ber are also Jackpot Runes)
Exile [ Vex, Ohm, ist, Dol ] - Awesome Paladin Shield
Faith Gmb [ Ohm, Jah, Lem, Eld ] - THE Amazon Bow. Dont make this unless you plan on self-using. ppl are quite fussy with the base item requirements.
Fortitude [ El, Sol, Dol, Lo ] - THE Bowa Armor.
Infinity [ Ber, Mal, Ber, Ist ] (Jackpot Item) - THE Merc Weapon for Sorc's.
Pride [ Cham, Sur, Io, Lo ] THE Merc Weapon for Amazons. We see very few of these. Dont make it to sell. Make it to use, or sell the charms individually.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Misc
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Usually Misc stuff is left at the bottom of such lists, however in this instance I have it near the top as it is so relevant in the early days of D2R.
Therefore, without further ado:

Quests/Misc Services
All Useful Quests
All Way Points
Hell Forge Quest
Socket Quest

Charsi Imbue Quest:

Every user on this site (and ingame) should be imbueing only Eth Maiden, Ceremonal or Matriarchal Javalins. Therefore if you ever find such. keep them for your Imbue quests. The reason for this is as follows:

As you really only need 3 mods to spawn, this item has the highest chance of producing a JACKPOT item for you that will set you up for the lifetime of D2r. You are looking for 4xx% Enhanced Damage and Replenish Quantity. Imbueing something like this will net you 10,000.00~300,000.00 OR MORE. Circlets/Ba's etc need more mods and therefore your far less likely to win the jackpot.

Normal Rush
Nightmare Rush
Hell Rush
Norm-Hell Rush (typically the most sought after version of rush).

Some people earn all their FG only rushing ppl all day long. This can also be done in CLASSIC (no act5, so no need to kill ancients, so well, its faster). Once the rush is in Act3 Hell the rushee typically converts to LOD. (never convert in act2, you will be kicked back to Act1 in LOD ok).

Cows Leveling Service - typically for this kind of service the host will have do's and don't rules. obey them ok, the exp is great.
Diarun Leveling Service - typically for this kind of service the host will have do's and don't rules. obey them ok, the exp is great.
Baalrun Leveling Service - sometimes the host will have do's and don't rules. obey them ok, the exp is great.


Key Sets
Organ Sets

The best time to do this is Weeks 1 & 2 of a New ladder. The sooner you start, the better.

40 Perfect Gems - [for Rerolling charms] - Lower quantities will also sell, particulary if PTopaz as people want those early on for MF.
Baal charm with proof (in order to roll/reroll Grand Charms looking for skill + 41-45life)

Perfect Amathysts cost more as everyone uses that gem to craft amulets. never include these when selling Pgems ok.

Craft Packs:

40 Perfect Saphires 40 Jewels 40 Ort Runes [For crafting Knockback Gloves]
40 Perfect Rubies 40 Jewels 40 Eth Runes [For crafting Repl Life Boots] - Highly Sought after in PvP.
40 Perfect Rubies 40 Jewels 40 Nef Runes [For crafting Crushing Blow Gloves]
40 Perfect Rubies 40 Jewels 40 Tal Runes [For crafting Open Wound Belts]
40 Perfect Amethyst 40 Jewels 40 Thul Runes [For crafting Max Mana Boots]
40 Perfect Amethyst 40 Jewels 40 Ith Runes [For crafting 10% FCR Belts]
40 Perfect Amethyst 40 Jewels 40 Ral Runes [For crafting 20% FCR Amulets Belts] - Highly Sought after in PvP.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Charms
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Annihilus Small charm

The first Anni's will be very expensive (Jackpot Item), regardless of their stats and we don't yet know when they will first appear or the criteria for them to drop.
20/20/10 is perfect (AKA Jackpot) and everyone wants an Anni so the prices will be very high as soon as they appear (and for some time as alot of people will want to keep their Stones of Jordan).

Gheeds Fortune

While not as "needed" as Anni and Torches, Gheeds Fortune provides an excellent boost to Magic Find and is a staple in MF Inventories. Therefore everyone
will want one. 40/160/15 is perfect.

Hellfire Torch

The first Torch's will be very expensive, regardless of their stats, the prices will be very high from the get go (and for some time).
20/20/25 is perfect (AKA Jackpot).

Magic Charms

A note on Magic Charms - Any charm, regardless of size (i.e. Small, Large, Grand), with Life or Life + Mana or Life + Res, will sell immediately noting the
first few days of the ladder is all about improving your characters survivability.

Small Charms:

Small Charms (Look for as close to these as possible)
3 frw 5 res
3 frw 11 res
3 frw 3max 20 ar (Jackpot Item)
3 max 20 ar 5 fhr
3 Max 20 ar 15 Life (LLD)
3 max 20 ar 20 Life (HLD)

15 life 12 mana (LLD)
451 psn damage
175 psn 20 life
20 life
7 mf
5 res

Large Charms:

Bluntly, Large Charms are not very desired noting they cannot have the Modifier +Skill and are not as good as small charms.
only keep those that are Max Damage / Ar / Life.

Grand Charms:

Grand Charms have the ability to spawn, or be rolled (via Cube) with +1 to a Skill Tab.
The ideal Grand Charm would look like: +1 (skill) | 45 Life, however even without spawning with life, Skiller Grand Charms will be in high demand from the
get go, particularly Sorc (FLight, Cold) and Paladin (Combat) Grand Charms and Java Grand Charms.

What to Look for/roll via Cube recipe:

<Class> Grand Charm (+1 Skill) with Str/Dex/Fhr/Life (up to a maximum of 45). Some Classes (Sorc; Paladin) will have a higher value at the start
(Supply vs Demand)

1 Fire / 1 Light / 1 Cold / 1 PC 45 Life - Jackpot Item
Note that 45 lifers can only be cubed via Diablo, Baal and Nilthanek Grand Charms (found in Hell).

Alternative Grand Charms:

as close to this as possible:

10max 76ar 45 life

or

132ar 45life
45life 59mana

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. Sets
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A note on set items: This is not Diablo 3, so complete sets are not in high demand. However, some items from particular sets or set items are in high demand, such as Tal Rasha Armor and Tal Rasha Amulet.

Sigon Set (Low Level twink gear - quite popular).
Aldurs Set
Griswolds Set
Immortal King Set
Natalyas Set
Full Tal Rashas Set (Armor Can be considered a Jackpot Item, Amulet is also highly sought. The Mask has a high chance to Drop at Mephisto NM and Hell so its value drops rapidly.
Full Trang Ouls Set

A Note on Ethereal Weapons:

Ethereal bases can be good for certain runewords. Dont be quick to ignore such bases if they drop for you. Most players will want an Insight as soon as possible, regardless of whether it spawns in a Normal, Exceptional, or Elite Base.

Eth Highland Sword 0 or 4 Sox
Eth Balrog Blade 0 or 4 Sox (sells better then Highland).
Eth Small Crescent 0 or 4 Sox

Rare

Rare Weapons have to be compared to Grief. 99.99% don't compare well. You are looking for is a weapon like this:
250-300ed 30IAS Fools Mod 1-2 Sox Eth (Repl, or Zod) in an Elite Base, Like a Bezerker Axe.

Just about every rare bow sux compared to Faith Runeword. Dont bother with the Bow if the level requirements are 50 or higher.

For LLD / MLD you are looking for:

LLD: 120%-165% ED, Attack Speed, Eth Repl. (Bows cant be Eth so dont need repl).

Examples of optimal Bases: Harpoons, Double Bow, Ashwood Bow, Exec, Naga, BattleHammer, Grim Scythe

MLD: 400-450% ED, Attack Speed, Eth Repl. (Bows cant be Eth so dont need repl). The Base Type For MLD Bow's is Shadow Bow (Does not need ias) and Matri Bow (needs 20ias).
Optimal Bases: Shadow Bow, Matri Bow, Matri Javs, Stygians, Highland Blade, Battle Hammer, Tyrant Club & Reinforced Mace

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
14. Amulets
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unique

Cats eye
Highlords Wrath
Mara's (Jackpot)
Metalgrid
Seraphs Hymn

Magic

+3 Skill Tab + 10 FCR (Cold, Light, Fire, PB, Ele, Trap, PC, WC)
+3 Skill Tab + 100 Life (Cold, Light, Fire, PB, Ele, Trap, PC, WC)

Rare

On review of D2r and Jsp from Launch to today, it looks like ppl are ignoring certain amulets. please note the following:

2 Cold / 2 Light / 2 Fire / 2 PC / 2 PNB + 10 FCR + Life / Mana will sell. so keep them and sell them.
2fire/10/70 mana will sell and thats very basic, and applies to most classes.
a 2 Fire / 10 fcr / 40 life / 90 mana and some all res sold for 8000fg ok (granted this is on the higher end).

Craft

Craft Amulets can be some of the best items in the game. you are looking for +2 Class, 15-20FCR, Life, Mana and Stats (Str / Dex). You want to be level 93 when crafting.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
15. Rings
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unique Rings

Bul Kathos Wedding Band
Nagelring
Raven Frost
Stone of Jordan (Jackpot)
Wisp Projector
Dwarf star

Rare Rings for PvP

You are looking for Damage, Stats, Life, Mana Res on rings whether LLD or HLD.

For HLD your lookling for massive stats and + Life

For LLD it should have 3 or 4 (or 6) of the following mods:

5min 9 Str 5 Dex 20 Life 90 Mana 5 Repl 30 All res


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Finally,

If you cant find Magic Find Gear or are struggling to get to Baal Hell / or to get better gear / fg, or simply don't know what to do, here are some options:

1. Baal Runs in Normal until Level 40~45. Baal Runs in Nightmare until 60~75. Consider doing Ancients, Baalruns and Hell mode in general with friends.
2. If you cant find Magic find gear, don't worry, you can sell as item bases (Armors and Weapons) via Normal Cows (1 handed Swords), Nightmare Cows (Runes) and Hell Cows (Alot of stuff!).
3. If you don't like Magic finding you can also rush people for a fee. There will be many people looking for rushes in the first few weeks.
4. If you don't like Magic finding you can also power level people for a fee. This can be done via Cows, Baal Runs and Dia Runs.
5. If you don't like killing stuff, you can always just craft. Crafted Belts and Amulets can net you a Jackpot Item.
6. If you are struggling in any part of Hell consider leveling to 90. It helps. Each Level over 96 takes a long time so only do this if you really have a lot of time on your hands.
7. If you are struggling with Mephisto MF'ing in Hell, consider doing Mephisto Runs in Nightmare in order to find upgrades / stuff to sell in order to be able to do Hell MF.
8. There are certain areas in Hell that can drop every time in the Game. The easiest such place is known as the Pits in Act1. Feel free to Google / Youtube it.
9. If you don't like to Magic Find, Gold Find is also a thing. Travincal in Hell is great for this (and is not bad for finding high runes either).
10. When all else fails, and arguably even better then all of the above, look for stuff on D2JSP that is being sold under priced, and resell it at its value. This is in particular for LLD, MLD and HLD PvP Items.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LLD = Low Level Dueling (Level 30 Dueling Bracket)

I am going over everything whenever i have time. if you are reading this and reviewing prices please note that the prices on most things drop on a daily basis. very few items (but there are a few ok!) have their price increased on a daily basis. the rule of thumb is :
Runes drop in price daily, weekly, monthly.
pvp items may increase in price (supply and demand).

An example of Torch prices: https://forums.d2jsp.org/topic.php?t=89634066&f=268&p=591037719#p591037719
