    Returning from a hiatus with a couple of questions

    Hey everyone, I'm finally returning back to this game after a long (around 6 months) break. I have a couple of questions I would like answered that I could NOT find using the search button.

    1.) How does one exactly get "keys"? I know you can get them from "The Countess (Key of Terror) / The Summoner (Key of Hate) / Nihlathak (Key of Destruction)", but what are the pre-reqs that I have to meet in order to get the keys?

    2.) Is it easier to start out with a Meteorb Sorc , or a Blizz Sorc? Note, I DID have a Meteorb sorc in the previous ladder season, but I wasn't really happy with it. I've been CRAVING to make a Blizz sorc for awhile now, but I'm not sure if it's a good starting char.

    That's about it for now... I might post back with some more questions. Thanks a lot! :wave:

    Hey, and welcome back to d2 after that break...that's only so long you can manage to stay away from this game :grin:

    As for your questions:

    1)There are no pre-reqs apart from killing the said bosses in hell difficulty.

    2)IMO blizz sorc is an excellent starting character. I prefer the blizz sorc over almost any other when starting with no gear, it's a decent mf'er even using only random items you found on your first play through the game and will really help gear out your next characters.

    I agree. Blizz sorcs are awesome.

    And yes, it is much easier to build an effective Blizz sorc than to build a Meteorb one.

    Nihla requires the anya q to be done. The summoner requires just the wp. The countess requires nothing.

    Blizz sorcs are the best start toon.

    So there :p

    nihlathak only needs the wp aswell. In fact if you havent done the anya q and you dont know the eye panel trick the little orange quest tab pops up every time ur near nia because u cant finish q without anya.

    welcome back .

    and juz a note: you can still play ur charcs even after they expired. (that is if your acc/Character name is not recreated by someone else when you got expired.)

    I didn't notice it mentioned here so I'll do it myself: make note of immunities when key hunting. I know I may be stating the obvious here. :tongue:
