    Back and with a Mat...

    Just goes to show, you can never quite put down Diablo 2. :whistling:

    It's been a couple of years now so even though I hadn't uninstalled D2 since the last time (and all the saves were still there), I decided to move the old characters elsewhere.

    I died so many times due to just to being sloppy and out of practice. The first time was under the palace in nightmare because I was eating popcorn, watching tv and playing one handed. :thankyou:

    Hell diablo got me a few times as well until I loaded up on dwarf stars and lighting/fire charms. My hellforge rune was a Hel. Grr.

    I will likely keep her for pit running but need to rethink equipment and how I'll spend the remaining skill points.

    Welcome back nilynrae :)

    You don't see many Burrito Zons these days! No Claglaws Pooncers?

    Welcome back, and congrats on the nice character. :)

    Are you up to speed as far as the new patch is concerned? Some relatively major changes were offered in 1.13.

    Re: Back and with a Mat...

    Cheers! Good to see you both still here. :)

    Maxicek, I went through all the bows I still had and read some old threads. Figured it was the best of what I had. I actually started with the WWS but found I prefered the Buri. The life tap on the gloves was also really handy! ;)

    NagisaFurukawa, I did go for a wander and read up on patch updates. I think my favourite one might be the lack of Iron Maiden on the OKs. Runes were definitely easier to get (I did quite a few countess runs when I found out and got a few at the Mal/Ist/Gul level.. which is nice!).

    One thing I've discovered I need to do.. is really sort out my stashes sometime. :coffee:

    Welcome back nilynrae and congratulations on the Burizon (she completely owns the Witchyzon btw.) A classic that still works.

    As for the sorting of stashes... Have a look at GoMule - It'll let you sort all your stashes any which way you want, and it won't take you 5 minutes. Completely ignoring the fact that you don't even need to have your stashes sorted when using GoMule. ;)

    Good to see you back.

    That's my kind of playing. :thumbup:

    Great Mat, always nice to see the old Buritto Cannon get some love. :)

    Nice character! I was under the impression that 1.10+ was created specifically to nerf the Buriza, so it's good to see that it is still an effective weapon. I have a Nef'd Buriza in 1.09 that's still in use - it sure is sweet in that patch, I can tell you!

    Grats on the burritozon.

    Nef rune + Nos Coil; for those with refined taste. :wink:

    Strafers > all! Nice to see one not using Windforce. I've used Burrito Cannon at various points with my Strafer, and it is definitely still an effective weapon. Especially when upped.

    Jason, if that gold hydra bow ever dropped, I might consider it... ;)

    RobbyD, been a while now but I loved the burizon back then! I did play most of Hell on p3 but it wasn't too bad really. Definitely not so nerfed...

    nubikoen, good to know! And thanks for the GoMule reference. I've downloaded it and frankly, I'm super-impressed. I can find things again! Plus built in Flavie reporting... what a godsend!

    Thanks guys... the ole' Burrito managed to do something my last strafer didn't. She's still sitting on level 90 as a Champion... :wink:
