Shrines

These are all the shrines that can be discovered in the pre-release demo of Diablo. There are some interesting effects, that don't show up in the retail version anymore. Most shrine names were used in the retail version but often with completely different effects.

Shrine Mysterious
PR message"Odd sensations"
Retail message "Some are weakened as one grows strong"
PR effect +5 to one attribute, -1 to all others.
Retail effect +5 to one attribute, -1 to all others.

Shrine Hidden
PR message"Energy passes through your equipment"
Retail message "New strength is forged through destruction"
PR effect One Item loses all durability (disappears), +10 to every other item's durability.
Retail effect-10 to one item's durability, +10 to all other equipped items' durability. No destruction of an item.
Shrine Mystic
PR message"Your skills increase, but at a price"
Retail message -
PR effect Reduces your gold to 1, increases experience by a special amount. The attempts to set up a formula which determines the exact amount of gained experience finally resulted into this monstrous formula:
dlvlČ * 1000 * (1 + 0,1(dlvl - clvl)) - ((sgn(2 * (clvl - dlvl + 1) - 13) +1) * 0,5 + cint(0,5 / cint(0,1 * (clvl - dlvl + 5))) - 1)
This is not a joke. Sgn divides the term by it's own absolute value. Cint rounds the term up (from x,5 on upwards) or down (less than x,5). The entire brimborium following after the first big bracket only makes a difference of 1.
This is definitely the most entertaining formula I've ever seen in Diablo. Would it surprise us if that caused some unfamiliar effects, too? No, of course not, and it does! Due to the above formula you gain less experience with increasing Clvl. With a Clvl 10 points higher than the Dlvl you gain no experience at all. The point is: With an ever higher Clvl you will gain negative experience! Some examples for Dlvl 1: Clvl1: 1000, Clvl11: 0, Clvl21: -1000, Clvl 50: -3900. This applies also to monsters (look there).
To clarify this... -in most cases you only need dlvlČ * 1000 * (1 + 0,1(dlvl - clvl)), because the rest results in zero. But in some cases - I don't know why - you don't get plain hundreds, but one point less. For example on dlvl 2 and clvl 8 you receive 1599 exp. That is why the formula has become that long ;-)
