    1.03 bonefarming/other guides?

    My friends and I don't play on B.Net, so we are free to choose the version we play. Unfortunately, it seems like all the information for old versions has disappeared off the face of the internet.

    As time goes on I become increasingly dissatisfied with the way Blizzard insists on making the game harder with every patch. I like my casual gameplay. In D2X 1.11b, all my melee characters struggle to get anywhere. In 1.03, I'm doing quite well with a meleemancer who doesn't even have BG/IM yet. :p

    So, does anyone know where guides can be found for old versions? I am especially looking for how to farm the bonewall bug. Thanks.

    (If you're thinking it, please keep your whining about me abusing bugs to yourself. I play in a private group, and I have okayed this with them.)

    People didn't know much about the game in 1.03.

    I think that's the version where there were no cooldowns? Maybe a sorc to abuse that. There's a few 1.07 guides but I don't know how those would help.

    Anyway, I think 1.11 is easier than 1.03 after a while..

    I know a couple of things to abuse buildwise, like static field and jab, but what I am most looking for is information on the bonewall bug.

    I think the bone wall bug was fixed by 1.03. Not sure, but I think it was.

    By bonewall bug, do you mean the issue with missiles exploding as they pass through bonewalls yet not disappearing?

    No, I'm talking about the bug where under certain circumstances, bonewalls drop items like enemies when they expire. Bonefarming is casting lots of bonewalls and then scooping up lewt from them.

    That's why it was fixed in 1.04, yes.

    Ugh, that brings back memories. It was indeed around patch 1.03, and going from memory it involved casting the bonewalls outside of town (ideally after clearing the area of monsters) and then running back in before they expire. You might want to run all the way into town and wait for about a minute.

    I'm glad Blizz patched that one.
