First of all I see there is a bit of misinformation goin around here. I've hunted/fought/killed clone thousands (literally) of times and there is a surefire way to do it. Firstly it takes 80-130 sojs to make any server "pop" a clone. The only good thing about that is that you dont have to sell them all by yourself if you know where to go and the even better thing is today i'm going to tell you where to go. Next, Dclone can easily be killed with 1 person using either 1. a smiter with even the lamest gear as long as he's got lifetap, a javazon with a infinity merc, other strong builds like ww barb etc.. etc.. he's pretty much immune to any elemental skill without the use of infinity (except for the javazon's charged strike, that'll pwn him ez).
The only ways to know what server you are currently on is explained above, use the command prompt (click start>run>type command>press enter) then type netstat -n and keep your eyes peeled for the server with a port connecting from :4000 and the last two or three numbers is the server number the first three are always the same (63.240.202) (This is Useast Realm BTW) For example if your netstat has an ip like this 220.127.116.11:4000 then you are on server ip 144. There are other method's of seeing an ip such as R1ch's ip in window or by using some of the clever ipfinding bots (f1ndip also by R1CH) or Dcsitter (LivedKrad and [NS] helped build this clientless beauty though it requires an extra cdkey/window to hold the game)
Just randomly ending up on a server selling sojs isn't the best way to go about it. You'll most likely wait in that game for days (or until you drop)
without ever seeing a dclone. even though you might get lucky its highly unlikely. I'm here to tell you about a place that collects information on all the servers and publicly shares that information and keeps track of how many sojs are ever sold and on what server. First thing you should do is download mirc (www.mirc.com
) Its an Internet Relay Chat (irc) client it will connect you to the chatroom where they hunt DCLONE!!! Once downloaded choose yourself a nickname enter in information it requests (just name and email, and you dont have to put your real info in, my info states ch as name and Graaasoj@dot.com
as info lol) Then click ok, you'll have a blank window with a small section to type in at the bottom, click on that small section and type /server irc.diabloclone.org and press enter. You've just connected to the dclone hunting server. You'll get the message of the day (usually just WELCOME Blahblahblah.) It'll usually tell you to either register your nickname with the server or change it if its in use already. If it tells you to register simply use this command /nickserv register pickapassword firstname.lastname@example.org
(now press enter) Then it tells you you've registered blahblahblah now you can join the main channel which is #useast-dclone. You can type /list to see a list of all channels (chatrooms) available to join, they have contests games other things like guildwars lotto etc... fun stuff to entertain yourself with while hunting for dclone, but the important part is useast-dclone. To join that channel either right click it in the list and click join channel, or simply type /j useast-dclone (press enter)
You'll now see as the topic something like this [7:39am] * Topic is '«««( Renegade: ) ¬( HOT: ) ¬( ACTIVE: ) ¬( SLOW: ) ¬( WALKED: 49/48/164/36/70 ) For help type -help - to see the highest servers type -hot - to see info on a specific ip type -event iphere - Set by Mantis'
[7:39am] * Set by Diablo on Mon May 08 00:56:23
Then you'll see ppl yapping their heads off about dclone. The important part is to know how to read the topic. Renegade is the nightly private walk, where people get together to all throw in sojs (5 a piece or more if you want) to get dclone to pop on an unannounced server (not known to the public so only you and the people helping with sojs know what games to be in) If you ever see an ip address in this part of the topic go FIND one of those games immediately, I suggest using F1ndip by R1ch or if you think yer a pro make some games quick and if you land on that ip you'll get a dclone within minutes because they only release the ip to the public 15 minutes before they sell the sojs. Bam instant anni just like that
. The next thing on the topic is hot :Active : Slow This displays current server activity, for instance if ip 144 is listed in the :Hot: part of the topic, I suggest getting in on that action, because it means its been selling alot of sojs and very quickly it is most likely to have a dclone soon. If its in slow or active watch it closely, because its been selling and it may turn HOT quickly and/or spawn a diabloclone soon. If an ip is in the :WALKED: section of the topic that means it was recently visitted by a dclone, good to know if you were on a server and wasn't sure if you got dclone yet or not. This about sums up the topic section. There is much more to learn about the bots you can use, where you can get more cdkeys/proxies for massive hunting (me personally I can get up to 50 annis in 1 hunt :P) But you'll have to join up irc.diabloclone.org and find that out for yourselves. I hope this helps anyone trying to hunt. Good luck and see you there, I'm always there as Sean1818 and any questions you might have (like where can I find the Bots) can be directly to me or just about anyone else there with a brain
