Hello!

I would like to say hello to all members of this forum. I have been reading here for a couple of days and it was this that made me start playing Singelplayer Diablo 2 again.

Well then a little about myself.

My real life name is Henrik. I’m 20 years old and from Sweden. Unfortunately I have rarely been outside my country; the exception is when I went to London with a couple of friends. Nevertheless I feel the future holds a lot of journeys for me.
I’m currently studying my third term for a degree in Master of Engineering.
On the spare time I really love watching a good anime and hanging out with friends (who doesn’t?). Playing computer games, go fishing, watch TV, play music (Mostly metal) and driving around with a car is other things I like.

My Diablo 2 career started in patch 1.09d when a couple of my friends told me about this game. I started out in Singelplayer with a barbarian. I made him with one of the most ineffective builds, one point in every skill. He never made it through hell. Regardless I had a lot of fun with him running NM Mephisto. I really like MFing. After I had played around with Singelplayer I desired to try out closed bnet. I was able to attain all elite unique items excepts Windforce by trading. For this stuff I made a standard PvP-WW barb which I had a lot of fun with.
After about one year of vacation from Diablo 2 I started playing Singelplayer again with the arrival of patch 1.10. This time I made it through the whole game with a Meteorb Sorceress. Farmed Hell Mephisto like a fanatic with her. Got a couple of decent items from him with “Head Hunter’s Glory†being the rarest, most likely. I think I also got and Ist rune from Hell Diablo or NM Diablo. In any case that is the rarest self found rune for me.
I then quit playing until for about two weeks ago when one of my friends wanted me to start playing on bnet again. However, I didn’t take long before I remembered why I quit bnet last time. The rushing and dupes destroy the fun for me. After browsing around in this forum and its corresponding trade forum, I decided to start Singelplayer instead. The only thing that was more fun with bnet was the trading anyway, and your system seems to work much better. So I started out with making a HC Fishy and a SC Blizzballer. Never liked meteor so I think I will enjoy her more.

Well that’s about it. Hope my shins survive this :wink3: .

PS. Excuse my English it's not what it should be.

Welcome.
Meteor is boring isnt it? Blizzballers are a solid build. Enjoy the stay here and have a read of stickies. Also may I ask what the deal is with your 'tar?

SeeiN2StarS: Thanks for the welcome :smiley: . I like a lot of American bands, I'm not sure if they all classify as metal but anyway: Manowar, Rob Zombie, Mega Deth, Evanescence, Iced earth is what comes to mind right now. How about you? Have you heard of any Swedish band?

nebux: Thanks :)

YoungDbl: Ye, meteor ain't fun at all. However it was quite good for killing Mephisto, I hope Blizzard will be just as effective. About my avatar: Bockhorn is in Swedish the antlers of a goat (or Goat antlers, I'm not sure what you say). I have been using this nickname on the web for a long time now. Think I got it from a fantasy book by David Eddings. And thanks for bidding me welcome :).

Thyiad: Thanks. I think I will enjoy this a lot :smiley: .

Now it's time to read the rules more carefully. It would be sad if my time at the forum ended right away :tongue: .

Hello :wave: and welcome to the SPF!

Which David Eddings book is Bockhorn from? I've read a few of his and haven't come across it.

Again, welcome and enjoy your stay!

Nacaa, Suiling, Kefir-Tribe thanks for welcoming me :smiley: . It's very appreciated.

Drystan I think I was a little unclear when I explained that. Bockhorn is the Swedish word for the antlers of a goat. The book I read was translated to Swedish and I don't know how accurate the translation was. I really should read the books in the original language to avoid this. Well anyway, in one of the The Elenium books (I think the first) a fanatic and his followers is worshiping a "Bockhorn". I think they were is some kind of desert country, been a while since I read it. The fanatics shouted "Bockhorn, Bockhorn, Bockhorn!" and I thought it was so damn funny. So I took the name and it has sticked with me.
Do you remember this incident? If you do what are they worshiping in the original language? And Drystan thanks for the welcome :smiley: .

Hmmm. I don't think I've seen that. I'll keep an eye out of it. :)

Minor nit: goats don't have antlers; they have horns. The difference is that antlers are shed each season, whereas horns are permanent, and only grow larger with age (though they can obviously be cut, broken, or ground down to be smaller).

Anyways, welcome aboard. :)

pharaoh: Thanks a lot for the welcome and telling me this. Should it be Goat horns?

It feels great to have so many people welcome me. Thanks everybody :)
