Steel has done a great job by adding the ability to purchase from vendors, but it would be great to get more than just my eyes testing this.

To test it, download this zip file and extract the 3 txt files in to your Data\Global\Excel folder. You will probably want to save the current versions of those 3 txt files so that you can restore everything back to normal.

Here is what they should do:

Vendor changes
-all class armors can be bought in a1/a2/a3/a5 - didn't change a4 as there're only 2 vendors - instead gave malah 2nd best armors(per norm/exept/elite I.e Zakarum Shield) and anya the best (I.e vortex shield)
-All sorcs orbs can be bought, 1 type per act as there are 5 of them +exept/elite versions
-Amazon's weapons are added in a2/a5 - as there are only 2 bows/2 spears and 1 javelin. Javelin and lower spear/bow are in a2 and best bow/spear is in a5
-Circlets etc. are added in a3/a5 (alkor + malah)
Vendors changed:
A1 - Gheed (Barb + Dru armors) Anya (Nec+Din)
A2 - Lysander has all items as he didn't have any previously
A3 - Alkor as he was naked
A4 - None
A5 - Malah and Anya

You must do Anya quest to accest these goodies.

Also Anya sometimes don't have all items as she have too many of them... refreshing by reentering town fix it tho.

Also as a side note: On normal diff items are hard to add as game checks your level in first 3 acts(a4-5 but lvl cap is higher), meaning sometimes if item level is too high you can't add it to vendor w/o making item like pots(always in stock), it's also impossible to add white items after certain level in a3. Keeping that in mind added Amazon Javs to Anya as they don't spawn in Lysander's stock on norm, but spawn ok on higher difficulty levels. So they are now being sold in a2 and a5 in misc tab. Test it more and I'll try to fix it if something's wrong

Auto-replenish
Replenish on thrown-able wpns/zon jav. It works only on norm/magic/rare/crafts (uniques are adjusted via a different method)


The file is here:

Ah ofc thx, my mistake by adding to all her automagic. Need to add new ID as lances and javs share the same group
Also Anya sometimes don't have all items as she have too many of them... refreshing by reentering town fix it tho.
Ok fixed.

zip file in the root has been updated.

We could still use more people testing this, so if you have some time please download the file and test it out. The more people doing this the better.

I don't know what was the purpouse of this test, but i checked it all at every diff, with one hlvl char and didnt found any bug. Every item spawn normaly and where it suppouse to spawn. I saw many items spawn with +x to skills or even saw an axe 450ed. Thats all i can tell bout it now. I'll l8er check it with lvl 1 char if all works fine. And tell me what i sould look for.
P.S. Will patch be ready tummorow, and Blu when would u update bows at ur patch website??

thx all for testing.

the purpose is just to make sure it all works well and doesn't produce bugs (like crashes, broken items spawning, etc

hoping that patch will be ready tommorrow, all is going "ok" although I had a crappy weekend of doing a lot of work which slowed down my ability to get everything done.

I should have bows updated today.
