    Classic Diablo II

    Hello,

    I've newer played Diablo II as I bought my version in a packet deal with LoD.

    So yesterday I realized that I haven't seen the original ending cinematic of DII and started a new necro character in softcore DII.

    My question is:

    No jewels, no runes and no class specific items (necro shrunken heads), yes?

    Topi

    No ethereals or elites as well I believe. I haven't played classic since LoD so I'm not sure how much they updated it.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just stick the cinematics disc in the drive and watch the videos from there? :wink3:

    Edit: Upon further review I don't believe that works... unless I'm missing something.

    Hahaha, and dont forget picking up all the items you can before it runs out. I know I tried to pick up everything, due to not knowing the value of anything. That and I believe stashes were smaller back then.

    OMG, i loved classic D2 it was so much fun, i remember if you went Mfing and you found like 5 really good armors and your inv was full you would have to leave back like 1 or 2 because the stash was so small (half the size).

    @XDoomasX LoL i remember like on 3 ocasions i didn't have enough time to pick the items from the ground and i would get really pissed. Obviuosly LoD is better and funner but i really like classic.

    Fairly certain Ethereals are a part of D2 Vanilla though...

    Maybe not, but I played it for several years before LoD confiscated my soul for well...too long....:thumbsup:

    Sorry, no etheral items in Classic.

    There is a Classic forum with a bunch of Classic stickies that you may find useful. Here is a build guide library from there.

    While 1.10+ LoD has much more to offer it's very fun to return every once in a while. (Personally I have a few D2c characters in v1.09d)

    And Full Rejuves dropped even in normal, mostly from the council members. Then I fought Lord De Seis and I was like "OMG this a**hole is robbing me of my best potions, I got to hurry or he may pick them up" :grin:

    If you play Classic under 1.09 or later, you won't get those two "features"- no full rejuvs until late NM at least, and De Seis no longer steals potions. Earlier versions (pre-expansion, 1.03 maybe?) had those, as well as some other things that changed. For example, there was a nasty unique quill-rat type monster Razor Spine in the Outer Cloister that was deleted somewhere along the way. Lance barbs were nerfed somewhere along the way as well, though I can't remember the particular manner in which they were nerfed. But "modern" Classic play has incorporated a number of expansion-type improvements, like the "repair all" button.

    That son of a ***** killed so many of my classic characters so many times. Wasn't he lightning enchanted with amp. damage and a few other nasty mods? Now whenever we enter the Outer Cloister or Inner Cloister we see Quill Rats...in tribute!

    WW used to not care about Weapon speed so lances were king. then speed started to matter and lances got hit hard with the nerf stick.

    Even in current Classic, weapon speed doesn't matter for Whirlwind. The problem of a PvM lance WW barb now in Classic is the extremely low durability- lots of trips to town. With a triple durability rare (75 v. 25) it is acceptable but still a concern. Martel barbs are much more common for several reasons:
    1. You can level with Bonesnap, which is a great weapon
    2. You have the battle hammer+shield one-hand option
    3. The strength bonus to damage is better (1.1% instead of 1%)
    4. The durability of a rare martel is either 60 or 180 instead of 25 or 75.
    5. There is no dexterity requirement for martels (110/** for lance, 169 for martel)

    Martelbarbs took over from v1.09 and onwards. (They were bugged pre-lod)
