I was getting bored with D3 again, so I played some D2 this weekend.  I found some good tc87 grailers:  BK Tribal Guardian, Wraith Flight, and the grand prize...Death's Fathom!  It was 27% cold damage too, which is a pretty damn good roll.  It dropped off some unique just outside the waypoint in WSK2.  I have never found that thing before in all the time I've played D2, so I was pretty excited when it dropped.  I might make another sorceress to be exclusively cold.

I'm down to 52 items left with my plugY characters.

 :)Hello everyone.  I was just wondering if anyone still played D2.  D3 has gotten stale whereas I never used to tire of D2.  I guess I've never found anything that could replace it.

Welcome.  Yes we still have active players.  Not many but a few.  I have long since given up on D2.  Maybe if they ever do an update to it...

Welcome.  I started again from scratch in August trying to do the Holy Grail, but I've been taking breaks lately to play other games.  Gets harder to stay invested when you start going days or weeks without finding anything new.

I've seriously thought about getting it again. It's only 9 bucks on blizzard's website.

Well if you want LoD then you will need to throw down 20.

Don't do it.

Nostalgia only carries you so far.

I've tried replaying a number of old good games and I never can. A lot of times, the things they did that were good have been improved on since then, done better by other games. In other cases, the graphics are just too dated and your eyes start to hate you and try to gouge themselves out.

Yeah, and at 9 bucks it's an impulse buy. At 20, there's alot of good 20 dollar games out there...

Oops wrong thread. Meant it for gaming chatter. Anyhoo, downloaded and it sucks. Not worth it.

LOL!  I get what your saying, but I still love playing it.  I still get the thrill when finding a rare item.  Heck, today I found a Lo rune and was pretty excited about that.

I've ordered myself D2 +LOD as I can't find my old disks and I have a hankering to give 1.07 a try again.
