Hello.  My name is King's Spectre.  I'm a D2 addict.  I've been clean for 15 years 20 minutes now.  See you all in September??   ;D

Perfect! Any thoughts on what character you'll go with to start the party?
I'm pretty sure it will be a paladin ;)

Welcome back KS!

There absolutely will be a fanatic zealot in there!  Given that farming Kurast is a thing now (what is this, 1.07 all over again?!), I may get the ball rolling with a sorc of some kind.  Probably have to throw a fendazon in there somewhere too.

Ah good times, I have a 20-year old who definitely was my off-hand weapon during a lot of meph runs back in the day.  It'll be fun pointing out to my 15-year-old that some of these characters are 5 years older than he is!

Anyone know if the current scandals/walkouts  and disgusting stuff have had any impact on this?

Not clear, from my POV.

Now I am pissed that I pre-purchased.

How disgusting the whole scandal is.  It is being developed by a side company but who knows.  The whole thing is an absolute shit show.

 hundreds of Blizzard employees rallied outside the company’s main campus in Irvine, California to protest the company’s handling of sexual harassment and discrimination charges. They’re asking the gaming studio to agree to four demands, including ending mandatory arbitration in all employment contracts.

In terms of Single Player which is our point of origin, who is thinking of starting fresh, and who is thinking of migrating stuff, possibly characters, gear to resurrected? maybe we should just say SD to HD?    I've got some conflicting thoughts at this point.  I might do similar to what I did when 1.10 first released.  I loaded up one character with some goodies to help twink and get my first one going through normal and nightmare.

My amount of play time is severely diminished compared to a decade ago.  I like the idea of a running start.  Also tempted by starting with something and earning my keep.  At least you can level up well and have options where to farm things. 

Still bit academic at this point, the game hasn't released and I haven't bought it yet either :P

I'm most likely going to keep all my existing SD 1.14 characters where they are for now .. I may end up migrating them across.



Also, would atma not work with the new stash configurations? and shared stash?  I think Doc hasn't been seen at least around here in ages, and not sure if he cares about trying to do things to get it going?  Or GoMule?

I am starting again, i do have an old external HD with saves, but i feel a fresh start would be great.

Makes sense.  If you loaded up your level 98 assassin you could continue, but probably burn out faster.

Any idea if you have certain goals? or just hit mat/pat in record time then start farming :)

I'm planning on starting fresh. :)

Anyone take a crack at the demo over the weekend? I played for a splash on Friday, but only got up to level 5. And that was it for me, as we had a wedding on Saturday and more family stuff on Sunday. I couldn't find a way to play offline, but I'm guessing that was as designed since it was called a multiplayer beta/demo.

Is there a good list of those somewhere? Not that I'll ever have the runes to make anything cool, but hey.  :P

So glad that is the case because Spirit is such a great runeword and it is easy to make.
