    Hello!

    Title really. I just bought some 1.00 discs and they'll be here in a few days. That said, the last time I time traveled was almost 2 years ago in 1.07 on my laptop, and I don't remember how I did it. Is TrenShadow still the way to go?

    Also want to play 1.10s for beta CtA.

    Help me with your wisdom oh wise spf.

    Thank you! :)

    Bliss' version switcher is decent if you don't mind starting up Diablo via 3rd party application.

    Here is the relevant section in the FAQs with links to both Fearedbliss' and Tren's version changers. The links to all the D2/LoD patches are there too. When I time travel I just have separate installs for each version I want to play and just change the name of the main directory.

    You mean like starting diablo through Bliss? Is there a reason that would be an issue?

    I used bliss and it is quite good for tone travel. Just note that you will need the cds to play. I mounted them via daemon tools.

    Also try out 1.00 for insane ww.

    Will this method work if I want to play 1.06b, 1.07, and 1.10s?

    Bliss works great, I'm playing five different versions right now and they all work great. I did have to run Glide to get it to work with my graphics card, but it works great now.

    I've not played D2C for, ever really, but I have played 1.07, 1.08, 1.09, 1.10, 1.11/1.12 & 1.13 all on separate installs on the same drive. Although I only have 1.13, 1.09, 1.08 & 1.07 on my games partition at the moment.

    I'll second this, it is a really good tool once you have it running. I found it easier to use then trenshadow.

    @Dazliare how did you find 1.00 discs? I'm currently searching for earlier discs in order to play 1.07, but a cursory internet search did not find 1.07, but I think I've found the 1.00 discs on eBay. My search terms may be crappy. I suppose you could get 1.00, then upgrade to 1.07, and play 1.07 with the 1.00 play disc?

    @BBS_Agonistes I got my 1.00 discs on Ebay a week ago, I've been playing a thorns/conversion paladin and have made it into nightmare a1 :) Having a blast playing the original version, I want to try out a ww barb next. I didn't want to use my 1.00 discs though so I made backups of the install CD and the play CD, if you would like I could send them to you so you can play the older patches.

    Discs haven't arrived yet, but I'm starting to play out some characters. Thoughts on a 1.06b nova sorc?

    Not sure if you can buy mana potions in 1.06b which always scared me away from caster builds. It might still be doable with some +mana gear and hard points in Warmth.

    Yep, no mana pots for sale. There are no cooldowns on spells either (atleast not in 1.00). So frozen orb and firewall are quite good.

    Good advice, thanks. Is ATMA compatible with 1.06?

    No cooldowns in 1.06b. You can have lots of fun with Hydra, FO and Blizz. I also enjoyed blaze for the lols

    I was actually thinking Hydra could be a ton of fun. I played on in a tournament that I really enjoyed before she died. Mana will definitely be an issue. Perhaps a future character.

    One other thing to bare in mind is that pot drops are dependent on act not difficulty. So act 1 hell only drops minor healing / mana pots.

    Yikes. Sounds like the no cooldown might be hard to take advantage of with no pots, but firewall would be pretty sick no pots.
