    -no act5
    -no charms, jewels, ethereal items
    -no assasin, druid
    -no exceptional or elite uniques
    -mercs dont carry through from game to game
    -no runewords, no runes
    -your stash is half the LOD size
    -there is no weapon switch on your character
    -lastly, it's a ton of fun

    Thats about it I think...

    There are no:
    elite anything.
    exceptional or elite set items.
    magic items with cruel prefix and the max +to maximum dmg is 20
    soceted armor except by SOJ.

    Other differences:
    some other combinations of rare prefixes aren't in classic like rare rings cant have 30+ mf.
    you cant give mercs items/potions.
    hell resist penalty is -50 to all
    nightmare is -20 (could be -25)
    monsters are weaker/lower lvl so its harder to lvl up.
    other ones I cant remember

    another important small thing for pvp:

    dexterity does not affect % chance to block. Only the shield itself does.

    Also theres no absorb so resist stacking is vital.

    Unless you can find someone that has been playing since pre 1.08 like me who has several 30%+ mf rings.

    In 1.10 LoD> Classic simply because Classic got way imbalanced by 1.10 which strictly was a LoD patch ;/
