Diablo II Veteran Reliving the Good ol' Days

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Okay, I quit Diablo II about 5 years back when the 1.10 patch just got released. Could a current Diablo II player inform me about what is new in Diablo II since the patches between 1.10 and the current 1.12 patch. I know 1.12 adds no cd support, but I haven't a clue about in between. Isn't there something new about the catacombs and Andariel? I would love to know what has changed as I want to get back into the game casually, rather than hardcore like I was last time.
EDIT: I'm talking about Diablo II and its expansion, Lord of Destruction.

synergies, i don't know if 1.10 had that but they are like skill bouns for for other skills

and ladder only specials such as:
-ladder only uniques
-diablo clone (appears on a certain server when enough sojs are sold, they did this to control dupes)
-uber druel/andariel/izual, you can make a portal buy cubing 3 keys (key of destruction, terror, and hate) the portal is random and it takes you to one of the bosses. if you defeat all three you get their loots and cube those you get to fight:
-uber baal/diablo/mephisto at the same time in tristram. if you defeat them you get helltorch charm with uber stats and a uselss trophy
-new rune words
-they made most of the monsters stronger, and new enemy placements

afaik 1.12 is just no cd patch and ladder reset, no new gameplay invovled since 1.11b

Ah yes, I did fight diablo clone and I actually got the anni charm :-P. That was about two or so months before I quit diablo 2 as well. Below are some screenshots that I managed to save. Granted, I took these and editted them when I was in 5th or 6th grade. Anyways, thanks for telling me about all the new stuff (+REP). Hard thing to deal with is starting from scratch oh well... this game is a legend. Any ideas for places to get cd keys for a decent price (not retail)? I'm looking into getting some other people in the area into it and running multiple instances on my computer.

Ive played LOD as a nwn mod and its actually done very well and true to the original story. It will also be in true 3D because of the NWN engine. I have NWN2 MOTB to boot and its fantastic. I still own the original Diablo and Diablo 2 as well.

I miss diablo 2, but I stopped playing it when I felt there was nothing left to do. I had all the best items, for all classes, at level 99. I just hope that some day diablo 3 actually comes out .

I think the main thing currently for players is there's no maphack that works with 1.12 yet.

I played this game for years, before the expansion and afterwards. I still remember when all the hacked items started showing up and the patch erasing them all! I lost so much. I really thought that the hacked items made the game a lot more interesting because PVP was a lot more intense.

I actually had a hammerdin very similar to yours, after that patch was released. I don't think I could go back to it, it would be too boring to start all over.

a lot of people are getting back into this because there was a ladder reset recently. I hate when they did that because I lost all of my progress.

They just get moved to non-ladder, you don't loose them.

I understand that. But a lot of the best rune words could only be made on Ladder characters, and thus, once my old characters got moved to NL, I just abandoned them and started all over in Ladder.
