    Back after 3 years, what's new.

    Hello everyone,

    I was playing heavily from day 1 until 2007. Then I had to quit and now I see that I can redistribute my stat and skill points at Akara, the game requires no CD any more and the traders of dupes are more annoying than ever.

    So whats new in terms of builds, strategy and so on? Last time I played latest patch was 1.10.

    Regards,
    John

    Not much different since 1.10. Pretty much all guides are still valid, except those relying on bugs like marrow walk bug. Uber tristram is new also or was it in 1.10? I don't remember any longer.

    Patch notes.

    Nothing really changed as far as character builds from 1.10 to now. Some skills received minor buffs. The big changes would be Iron Maiden was removed from Oblivion Knights and Hammerdins no longer ignore the magic resistances of undead/demons.

    Yep hasn't changed much... Apart from IM gone, respecs added and hammers FINALLY nerfed (though not close to enough), it's mostly still the same spam-filled, bug-riddled stat perfection obsessfest. Blizzard didn't seem to care much about anything other than renewing interest in the Diablo franchise in preparation for D3.

    Doh! That wasn't in the patch notes. My Necro just hit level 66 too. Time to respec!

    Did they fix the Poison Dagger bug as well?

    Yeah, it's the same bug. No more "super synergy" from charges.

    High rune drops have a better chance now.

    Actually I was referring to a bug I read about a long time ago. Something like if you have Poison Dagger on one of your mouse buttons but use regular attack, you would always hit?

    Not always, but the AR bonus from Poison Dagger would apply even if the skill is red. I have no idea if it has been fixed or not, but it's been around since D2 hit the stores.

    Re: Back after 3 years, what's new.

    Thanks for the answers.

    I got my first barb to clvl30 and started slowly to remember the basics.

    Can someone please supply me with links to breakpoints - whirlwind multishot zeal frenzy static field/

    I couldnt find a decent list with available runewords. Spammers got me crazy online so I will stick with Single player - please advise a list with available runewords for single - on battle net forums i found a list with ladder only here on diablo wiki i see runewords up to 1.11.

    How more likely are high runes to drop/ An experienced player told me that now I can expect a BER in about 100 council runs or so. How close is that to the truth. Where are the places to run for the runes (besides countess)/

    I also noticed I am leveling a bit faster. Back in 1.09 clvl99 was easy in 1.10 anything more than clvl92 was a bit too much for me how is it right now/

    Ubers are still not available offline/

    Be so kind to excuse me for not having a comma and questionmark on this laptop.

    Heya.

    I have a printed table that has all of the breakpoints. Can't remember where I found it tho.

    Try this thread: http://diablo.incgamers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=667893

    Blizzards official site is always usefull: http://classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/

    And the runewords from the very same site:
    http://classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/runewords-original.shtml
    http://classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/runewords-110.shtml
    http://classic.battle.net/diablo2exp/items/runewords-111.shtml

    I know it's kinda dodgy to read them from 3 different pages but then again, I have those printed aswell (and stampled to a single pile).

    And if you are wondering, there are no new runewords, the 1.11 are the latest.
    (no new runewords were added in 1.12 and 1.13)
