Good progress Melchior!

It's going pretty well. Helps that I have played the game before...a lot.

Decided to make a Blizzard sorceress for Meph running to stock up on mid level items. She is up to Nightmare Meph atm and has found a few useful items. I am using PlugY so I have acccess to Insight runeword on my merc, makes teleporting past most Acts very easy.

Still running NM Meph, found a Stone of Jordan on my 2nd run today :O
Pretty exciting!

Started a Frenzy barb, twinked with 5pce Sigons and dual Civerbs cudgel to completely dominate P8. Putting all stats into STR, because softcore is risk-free and its more fun. Now in act 5 using dual Butchers Pupil which go quite well. Unfortunately they are my best weapons, so not sure what is next, will look into runewords or possible upgrading the pupils.

Soo... Was going to reinstall D2/LOD today, but I can't find how to.

BNET Support says to look in Account Overview / Games & Subscriptions, then scroll down to the classic games section - which doesn't show up on my account?

I can delve deep into storge and try and find my old CD's, but I'd much rather just reinstall online if possible... ANy ideas?

:)

Did you register your CD key with battle net? Or buy a copy on there?

Pretty sure I registered my keys on there last time I did a fresh reinstall... but that was years and years ago now.

That's a very good point! I think it was the website, after clicking the link through the desktop launcher.

I'll check later after little man is in bed...

Was all good, but still no D2 registered on my acocunt.

I linked (or relinked, I honestly dont remember) my D2 cd key and that came up. Now I just have to work out where the hell my LoD key is... or find a new one >.<

Installed and up and running :D Now all I need to do is work out what mods and updates I need - I saw Melch posted a link to a graphical /widescreen update on the previous page. Is there anything obvious I'd need outside that?

I also want to think about my goals before I get started down the D2 rabbit hole again. I know for sure that I need to get my previous assassin to 99, (Currently at 95), and perfect her gear - which is going to be tough, seeing as she was really the major focus of my D2 time after the release of LoD.

Thinking I might do a b.net solo / GO run - especially seeing as I never saw the uber boss content and so on... Is anyone else playing at the moment? What are you up to?

I think widescreen let’s you see monsters normally “offscreen” who just stand there and won’t attack. Ana Amazon etc will destroy them and break the game. Up to you

Sounds... bad?

Anyway, I've got Plugy running now - and holy moly, is that stash upgrade a quality of life improvement I wish I'd had 15+ years ago when I started playing D2.

Tried a p8 baal run, got squished, so I spent a lazy hour or so doing LK runs. (The muscle memory is almost still there!)

Couple of Io, Lum, Fal, Ko runes and one Lem rune. Nothing exciting, but a good solid start. Also got a cold damage / 11% cold res SC, which was nice.

I was pondering what to run, seeing as I have saved a few characters )only one with items equipped), but deleted all my old ATMA stashes.

No more prefect ribracker, thousands of jewels and charms gone, no items for new builds.

I ran meph a few times, but wasnt feeling the love... 2 hours with players8 pindle yielded absolute garbage, but his minions gave me a 3%FRW/+14 mana SC, and then this...



5 days back in - so hooked.
