    Other Non-Lvl85 Dungeon = Useless?

    Since any monster in this game can drop all item,then what is the point for other optional non-level85 dungeon exist? What purpose does they serve? These dungeon cannot even give a decent exp and some of these dungeon are hard as well...

    So what is are the reason for players to run those place?

    Doing the quests, for example. Or the challenge. Or because the areas are different. Many people are playing Diablo for more than just getting stuff (get unid torches, sell them and buy everything you need from that) and XP (get Ãœber Tristram rushed, then follow a Baal bot).

    I suppose they are useless for finding those impossible items, but I like to take my zon to all corners of the d2 world. The harder the better. As for items, I find it much more rewarding finding flawless gems, low to mid runes and charms, most of which aren't restricted to certain areas of the game. It makes my d2 experience a lot more enjoyable.

    Errr, it's content. It's... jesus, I'm not even sure what the question is.

    Anyway, if you're just talking item-wise, then yeah, you could argue that some areas are useless, but it's not really true. Ever since the increase in random unique monsters, you can get quite a few high-level boss packs in lots of places, that aren't neccesarily part of the common run-rotation. Not factoring in super chests and the like.

    It's what those of us, who can't stomach endlessly running the same areas over and over, does in Diablo; useless dungeons :azn:

    I think those dungeons really shine when you play either SP, untwinked or both. With that in mind, you have to cross all the land and you will most probably catch a glimpse of pretty much every dungeon.
    But the real reason they're there is that they were there during D2 Classic (minus Act 5 ofcourse). I remember running every possible piece of land when I just started with the game. Their use has just been decreased over time as the cookiecutters came around the corner.

    It's for those who wish to kill every monster in the game.

    Re: Other Non-Lvl85 Dungeon = Useless?

    Item wise, yes, they are rather useless. You can find better items in lvl85+ areas.
    But, some people enjoy going to different areas, for instance, I'll get more pleasure from killing stuff in an area that I have only been to once or twice, than from hardcore MFing in Chaos/Baal/Pits.

    People don't always want the highest level elite items. Sometimes people are actually looking for lower level specific items. Creatures that can drop any item are pretty unlikely to drop any particular item and are therefor less ideal for running if you want lower items.

    Re: Other Non-Lvl85 Dungeon = Useless?

    So I guess you didn't get a zod rune ? :laugh:

    If a full clear includes cows, then it should also include the Ãœbers. The world event is probably an exception, but purists might insist on that as well. What about the water snakes in act 3 ? Towers and doors in act 5 ? What else has a life bar ? :scratch:

    Re: Other Non-Lvl85 Dungeon = Useless?

    I'm planning on doing that again. I tried it once with LorveN but it took more than 8 hours iirc, spread over 2 days. Only the game lagged so extremely that we had to give up on Act 5. A team of different cookiecutters could clear it in 2 hours I think.
