A Couple of Questions I just beat the game in normal difficulty level using a Barbarian. I am now currently playing in the Nightmare Level. Question 1 - It seems like it shouldn't be that hard, even at an increased difficulty level, to kill some of the lower level monsters. I have two jemmed axes and us the double swing 100% of the time. My Ratings are high 1500ish and my weapons damages are 78-114, and 69-109. Most of this comming, I would believe, from socketed Emeralds for Poision damage. I also have Set Item Boots that gives me 3-6 damage on fire....had a 12+ Poision belt (Unique Item) but it was a light belt and it could not carry enough potion, so I got rid of it. Is it just that tough to kill the monsters, are my weapons a little on the weak side or what? I gamble alot for War Axes, Axes, Military picks, and none of them compare to my gemmed Items...This is for Regular Diablo 2, v1.10, NOT the expansion. Question 2 - Should I be playing with the Expansion or should I just keep playing the regular version...I have not played with any other character except Barbarian, and quite frankly, cannot imagine playing with any other character...the Double Swing is so fast & efficient...cannot imagine surviving some of the situations I have been in with a slow swinging Pauldin or an Amazonian or Nec or Sorc...Your opinion would be appreciated. Question 3 - My Barbarian that I am currently Playing with is Level 30. Strength is at 80, Dext is about 70, Life is about 75 and Mana is low...probably under 20 (dont really need it, especially now that my Double Swing is at a level (12 I think) where it no longer costs me any mana). My Skills are mostly Double Swing, some (4) Bash (for the bonus damage to Double Swing), Axe Mastery of 11, and the Skin one at level 4...No Warcries! What, if anything, should I be doing with my Skill Tree Points in the future. Thanks!
