    My friend doesn't have Lord of Destruction, and I was wondering if we were still able to play online if she doesn't have the expansion, and I do

    You can play classic together on B.Net, you just won't be able to access any of the expansion stuff (including resolution IIRC) with a classic char.

    You'll need to create a Classic character first then either create a game with that character or enter a game created by your friend.

    yup, you have the choice right at the creation of the character. Just uncheck the "expansion" box and you'll be able to play together. Of course, you can't use any of the expansion features with that character >.>

    .... and if at some point you decide to convert that classic character to an expansion character, it's a one way process and you can't go back.
