I just hit lvl 96 with my PlugY lightning sorceress.  I am pretty sure that's the highest level I've gotten a character to in D2 (I think I had a lvl 95 hammerdin with my non-PlugY characters).  It helps to have the unique small charm which gives an xp bonus, but it still took a long time.  Maybe I'll hit 97 sometime next year.  :P

There is minimal d3 content. Easy to establish which is which

Cheers! Now there's only 1048 Baal runs until 98...  ???

Definitely taking a break from baal for a while though, after two solid weeks of running him he bores me senseless and his drops are garbage.

Next job on the list - get my Werewolf levelled and go hunt some torches!

It has been a while but I thought the experience in like Ancient's Way was similar for the higher levels. It at least gives you somewhere different to go. Good luck on the 99 I think I got 4 of the 7 seven classes to 99 and that was a lot of work and time.

Patch 1.1 and later have a significant exp penalty at higher levels that mean at level 98, and sort of at 97, the only real monsters that give exp are Baal, Nihlathak and Diablo - although at 97 the Baal waves aren't terrible.

I thought I would revive an old thread. :) I have been just messing around in my old 1.09B patch. Actually it has been fun to just play for a bit. I am surprised how much I remember for my skill key mappings and stuff.

The game seems to be trying to draw me back in more. I played for a few hours and the drops were just crazy to the point I didn't want to stop. It was raining runes, grand charms, large charms and rings of all types. No skill charms but a couple nice Grand Charms. Different story for rings though I found a Nagel ring which I have quite a collection already. Then another one dropped just a moment later and I was expecting another one or maybe a little better. It was a Stone of Jordan! I think that is only the 3rd one I ever found myself.  8) Runes ranged from El-Sol but I picked up about a dozen in my wanderings.

Here are a few of the charms:
Shocking Large Charm of Vita
+34 to Life
Adds 1-76 lightning damage

Hibernal Grand Charm of Sustenance
+34 to Life
Adds 11-23 cold damage over 1 seconds
