When do you get followers?  I had some dude ask me if he could follow in Book 1- I told him to pack sand for fear he would steal my shiny drops and XP.

You get them when you stop being such a dick to followers!

Has anyone had any blacksmithing/jewelcrafting recipes drop for them? Or any item above rare?

Yellow hats are on the first set of the second tier at the blacksmith.  (Maybe one earlier.)

No patterns though.

As far as I can tell, everyone joins into someone else's game at whatever point the originator is at. You can also choose which quest to work on from the menu before joining, but that will be more for specialized runs after everyone has seen the story first.
It was odd. I joined a buddy last night. He was level 9, I was a fresh level 1. I was a DH so I could just hang back and shoot the stuff he was fighting, and I was catching up fairly quickly. Due to joining his game in progress, I skipped the first few quests of Act 1.
I don't mind, I played them in the beta, but I'm wondering about later on when I'm skipping quests that I haven't played in order to MP....

I got a record of killing 40 monsters with one spell last night without realising, so yes - they definitely put a lot more on screen that other games, and having some sort of room clearing ability is handy for those situations.

Jar of Souls got me a 69 record (though I only got a 29 in one blow) and there were many more when the timer hit 0 and they all blew apart... so yeah.

Your character is saved at the last quest you completed.  If you start another quest at an earlier point in time you can jump back there to complete it. (I did this already this morning.  I'd missed one of the key events in Act1 when I jumped in to Ragnoros' game)   

So, yes, a fresh level 1 could jump in to the end of Act2 with me and move forward.  They'd have to go back and complete the previous act's quests if they wanted to jump into any other public games prior to that point, though.  (i.e. they'd have to start at Act1, quest 1 and run forward from there.)

The past cannot be changed. The future is yet within your power.

Regarding the SK and yellows, the first time you kill him (or most boss monsters) you have a very high (100%?) chance to get a pair of yellows. Killing him again only gives you a standard named mob's loot roll.

There is always the chance that the yellows that may have dropped were misidentified by the new owner and dropped into the gaping maw of the blacksmith salvage beast, but I don't think so. Also a chance they are equipped on my character and I am just a mental deficient. I will check when I get home  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

I have several rare patterns which you get through levelling up. I'm stuck on the levelling because I now need pages of training to progress. I guess I'll start seeing those once I finish Act IV.

It would be pretty hard to mistake a yellow for a blue since you need to identify a yellow (with a right click) to see its attributes.

Constantly grouped with my partner. We got to level 10, killed the Skeleton King, only got one yellow out of him and that was it. I am not complaining about the game in general, but I have these fond feelings about a much more colourful looting experience. Maybe it's really just H:L that spoiled me and overwrote the D2 memories.

Try adding another. It was raining yellows for me today in a 3 man. Later acts seem better.

I've been dumping money into stash slots because I'm an altaholic and a hoarder.

10k is too cheap for another row, friends with better blacksmiths can craft stuff for you.

Is blacksmithing completely random? i.e, what you make ends up with 2 or whatever random attributes?

Yep, seems like it. I've mostly been lucky and have made some nice stuff on the first or second try, but I've definitely made some shitty random-ass gear with weird stats.

40 - 100ms. No noticeable lag, except 'teleporting' once or twice tonight. (that's playing from Austria on European servers)

You can only slot one rune per skill, so no.

It came up a few times today, so thought I'd just inform others

Bank slots: first page is 10k per upgrade. To open the second tab costs 100k, but the next upgrade within that tab is only 10k again. I'm only two upgrades into the second tab, so don't know how much 3rd tab costs yet  but it is good that it isn't 100k for each upgrade in 2nd tab.

Thanks Segoris.  I was worried that after saving up 100k I'd be hit by even more insane per-upgrade costs too.

Anyone know why I can equip a sword, but not swing it as a DH?

Also, Stash is not shared across toons?  ACK!

Have you tried unselecting any powers? (so that you are just using the default attack). Seems most of the actual attack powers for DH require a bow. Making a viable dual sword wielding DH seems unlikely.

Which cuts both ways. I dumped a crap load of gold into upping my crafting skill on my WD without realizing this is not just his gold.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Well, since the artisans are shared across all characters, it's not so bad.

Has anyone figured out what the "recieve a blessing" dude in the town does? He seems to do bugger all for me.

Achievements seem to be bugged too. I have my achievements for hitting levels 20 and 30, but none for level 10, ho hum....

Achievements being buggy is a known issue.

Aside from the tremendous number of players simultaneously logging in to the game, one of the launch-day service issues was linked to the achievement system. Some players began to notice early on that achievements were either not being earned properly, or not being saved between multiple logins.

Pretty sure he is just a stationary healbot. Lightwell, if you will.

Fair enough, I just assumed he had done something more awesome in beta, and they hadn't actually got around to taking him out, or he does something awesome, but it's invisible to me.

Because you can't shoot arrows with a sword. There are SOME non-bow things a DH can do and if you desperately want to be the very specialest snowflake around, you can probably build a DH that uses swords, but ... man, why would you want to.
