    One Never Really Quits...

    Ahoy all,

    With all the fuss about D3, I've finally caved in to the temptation to get back to D2. I don't know what I did with my savegames, so I'm starting from scratch, with my first char, aptly named Meteorb.

    I was active here around 2005, eventually dragging almost a dozen* characters through Hell Baal in 1.10. I had a lot of fun with my previous Meteorb in 1.10, eventually reaching 92, so I'm trying to get back up to a decent status with this char. After my 11 Mats/Pats, I kept interest going in a mod called Eastern Sun. I did a character of each class in that, but it was basically too easy, and I didn't feel like coming back to D2 at that point. I toyed with WoW when I first got to UK, but it's not a single player game. It's nothing on D2.

    As for this char... From past experience, I know life gets really easy after Frozen Orb at level 30, right up until the last bits of NM Act 5. I started this morning, got to Raikanishu and ran him to level 12. I'll Blaze, Fire Wall and Glacial Spike my way onward to 24, then pace it on /players 1 up to Eldritch, and milk him dry for XP using Blizzard until level 30. I'll charge up to NM Meph, then start running for some Hell-worthy gear before going for Mat.

    I doubt many of the people from the past still around. If you want an idea of when I was last active, I recall when Nightfish started his septaseptumvirate, and I'm really impressed to see him still going. AlterEgo is still mod, and I'm sure I'll see a few old faces (not in terms of age, of course :p) now that I'm back.

    See you around!
    30-30

    *If you're wondering what the characters were:
    CoT/PS Dtailer
    M'Avina Frostmaiden
    Lightning Spearazon
    Wolfbarb
    Aldur's Fireclaws Werebear
    Venomancer
    Fishymancer
    Avenger
    Hammerdin
    Fanatic Zealot
    Meteorb

    I can't remember much about you, but I certainly remember the handle well, and the sig, too: 30-30.

    Good to have you back! :D

    Welcome back. I think you are still eligible for shin-kicking, so watch out.

    Some things have changed, most haven't. Poke around, you'll work it out.

    Have fun. :wave:

    Ah yes, I remember. I was coming to these forums well before the first forum crash, and have been around a long time. Call me legendary if anything ^^

    Whoa, I'm noticing that there are quite a few familiar faces around. IIRC, lone_wolf = lord_vega?

    Sorcy just hit 24 and started Act 3.

    Re: One Never Really Quits...

    So true, same with me. I'm just back after over 4 years gone, though back then I was a b.netter and more of a lurker in the character-specific forums.

    Anyway, welcome back.

    Shadey! Now there is a handle I thought I'd never see in a D2 forum ever again. How the hell have ya been?
    Very few of the real old timers still bumping around this place. Where's your avatar gone?

    I guess a bit of ribbing is in order for old times sake.

    You still got that Pul socketed arkaines? :point:

    Welcome back 30-30. Always good to see more South Africans on the boards. So 30-30 as a name? Sounds like an interesting story? Something to do with tennis maybe???

    Hehe. No, but I never thought of that. It's the name of Bravestar's horse (i.e. the 80's cartoon character.)
