Some stuff i need to know.

There is one thing that i need to know. What is perming? I hear ppl talking about it all over the place.

Also another question, just out of curiosity, when u enter the d2 screen u see "battle.net", the gateway and this other option called "other multiplayer games.( what is this?)"

perming a verb "to permanent" which really doesnt exist

basically it's a way to keep duped items and runes. But it really doesn't work although some people believe in it. I saw my friend perm his 1.08 valk helm in a game and the next game he joined, it poofed on him.

There are two other multiplayer options: open bnet and ip games

open bnet is where you can play with your single player games but its flooded with hacks.

You have to connect to a host's ip to play their game. It's supported in the sp forum.

To perm is to make curls in your hair, you get this done at a hairdresser. :p

perming/ parking

some people also interchange perming and parking as in parking a character to get the 2 hours of game time in for a new character
