Don't forget about rings with 35% LL!  :D

Hey, I made an update to ATMA and I recommend you use that. It fixes compatibility with 1.13. Also, if you are serious about 1.07, don't forget the updated drop calculator as well. ATMA's drop calc for 1.07-1.08 was full of bugs but most are fixed now.

Thanks on all counts! I could use some LL rings right about now! :D

Meph is down and I'm slowly winding my way through Act 4. I finally have Blizzard in my arsenal, but I'm still very much a glass cannon.

Inspired by Dave, I've been playing a little D2 the past couple of days.  I've been doing Baal runs using my hammerdin, and found a griswold corona from an elite oblivion knight in WSK3!  The loot hunt in D2 never goes away it seems.

I've been doing some (a ton) of Pindle and Meph runs with my blizzard sorc. I don't remember much of what is considered good any more, but I did get Tal's Laquered Plate and an IK Stone Crusher, so those were cool. I also got Bartuc's for the 'sin I'm working on, so that was nice. :)

Dave!

Tal's armour is awesome, its 2nd to top TC, so rarer to drop.  It has lots of good benefits and the rest of the set isn't too hard to drop except the ammy.  IK Maul drops as often as Tyreals in D3!  I use them for Iron Golems in D2 :D

Bartucs is great for the middle stages of any sin!  Keep it up!

I've been playing a sorceress on Battlenet off and on for awhile now.  Started from scratch, so it has really been challenging.  I forgot how difficult parts of this game can be if you are untwinked (normal Duriel).  I finally finished nightmare yesterday.  Not sure why I am doing this, as I don't plan to really get into D2 again, but it has been a fun distraction.

I keep pondering revisiting the glory days of 1.09 but, I don't know if I could get my old disks to work.

If you have the activation code, you can sign into your blizzard account and register the game with them.  Then you can download and install the game without the disks.

Would be handy.

I do have a version of the game on the USB stick that came with the D3 collectors edition.

That is after what you need, having most of the files is handy

I installed PlugY and started a new sorceress to try it out.  So far so good.

isn't that the one that will corrupt you, you grow hair on your palms, you go blind and it ruins your soul?  Or was that just overreaction?
