Just don't get D2 without the expansion, its unplayable.
Gamespot has it has being released on December 31, 2009, which is over 500 days from now.
I played Diablo 2 classic for a long time (this was before they had the whole ladder-no-ladder deal) simply because d2 lod was getting too crazy withduping and runeword enigma shiz. That and LOD puts no emphasis on rares. Its just an entire game of everyone running around wearing all the same uniques.
However, if you are looking to play through the game for story reasons, you'd have to play LOD. Its just D2 classic with more items, an extra act, 2 classes, and a bigger inventory.
