Hi –I think it's time for me to finally post something in appreciation of this forum. Like most of you, and having been addicted to D1 already, I started when it came out and never really stopped. Getting bored every once in a while, but in particular studying and actually building a life meant it's kind of an on and off relationship of course, and the arrival of D3 - which I also played a lot (too much) as far as time allowed – I thought would mark the end of my thing for D2. Due to the incredible boringness of D3 and lack of interesting end game goals I fired up D2 again about 4 months ago. I've never seriously played in 1.13 – and actually only found out now when I came back to the game how HR drop rates have been increased, like, years ago. In my previous crazy D2 farming phases I had already found all the super rare items I ever wanted. Well no, not Tyrael's Might – but the useful ones anyway like Griffon's, Death's Fathom, Death's Web, Windforce etc. But high-end runewords as a self-found SP player (or more than, say, one every ten years) - to me that always seemed light years out of reach. So you can imagine I was excited to find out it was possible now. Super motivated I did a stupid amount of LK runs in the evenings, adding in the occasional Travincal or cow or CS run. And I couldn't believe what happened, how within weeks it was possible to fulfil the dreams of 10+ D2 years. I mean, I did have a few low HRs/high mid-level runes, but really: Weeks, as in, less than two months, to build Infinity, Enigma, Grief, Fortitude, CoH and some other stuff. Especially Infinity and Enigma essentialy made Diablo 2 an entirely new game for me - in late 2016, mind you. While still going for the occasional rune run, I then proceeded to get back to all-around farming. I guess everybody has to start tackling this Tyrael's Might thing at some point after all. I built the infamous MF Zerker MF Barb, AT and Trav Sorcs, p8 Pit/Cow Necro.. as well as many "non-optimised" general gameplay builds which to me are really a lot of fun with quite a bit of new items like Fury Druid, good ol' Zeal Pala, Trapsin, Rift Sin... To get to the point though: Without this forum I wouldn't have been able to achieve any of that. I feel I've come a very long way in a very short period of time, and that is due to all the super sophisticated tips, statistics or other information gathered from this community: Whether it was about efficient rune finding (LK vs Travincal vs Cows vs CS..), MF effifiency (which class, which build, where etc.), I'm sure I would still be pissed that Java couldn't kill LIs and my former favourite Palas and Barbs would be parked all the way down the Char list forever. And it's not like I was a total beginner before I came here. TLDR: After picking up D2 again and a lot of lurking (over many years, but especially last few months) it felt like I should let you know how amazingly helpful you guys are for someone getting back to the game. Also I've been thinking about starting to trade, even though so far I'm rather proud to be 100% self-found to be honest, but it's just getting so hard to find upgrades. So I thought I could introduce myself anyway. Anyway, great to see this game is still alive and thanks for doing all the work to keep it that way.
