    Lol, is it sad that I've been around D2 since the begining and instantly knew that it was a beta screenshot and an April Fools?

    <-- D2 Addict... needs help! :D

    I did for a couple seconds before realizing the absurdity of getting a DC spawn by Lister (that's some incredible timing to get that!) and remembering it was april fools :scratch:

    Worth a good laugh.
    Some will actually go looking for it ... and wander around a game for hours on end...

    Definitely a photoshopped job. I was hoping for more consistency. Wish the person used the potion graphics for Diablo 2 instead of Diablo 1?

    If you've read the history on how much bull**** the admins get after each Aprils Fool Joke they've done, you understand why they make it such a simple joke... Like when they claimed that WW would be nerfed to do "25% Chance to cast Iron Maiden on Self".... Jeeezz, some people don't have a grip :D

    No seriously man, the shrine exists I used one earlier today. It boosted my gf to 60000000000 damage and gave me 1000000000 def. Hope you guys find it cuz man, it packs a punch.

    It's not a fake picture, it's an actual screenshot from before diablo 2 was released of guild halls. Maybe it's a sign that they may finnish and implement them, we can only wish, or go to the place they work and get on our knees and beg them. And BTW, thats not a shrine, it's an alter to donate gold to your guild.

    Is it wrong that I recognize that actual screenshot as real?

    It's one of the few guild hall shots from the alpha.

    I looked at it once, read "only in games where Diablo Clone spawns in place of Lister", and thought "What the hell? Nobody'd ever see it, so how would they know it exists?" Then I glanced at the calendar and realized they couldn't because it couldn't.

    For the first time in my life, I woke up prepared for April 1. And I'm really glad it's fake considering the only DClone encounter I've had so far WAS spawned on Lister. I'd hate to have missed out on a shrine like that if it were real.

    It took me almost a hour to figure out what in the blue hell you guys are talking about, then i realized you people come in from the diabloii.net site. anyways.

    its april first, if anyone fell for that, they should back away from the computer and contact The Internet Crisis line where they help internet addicts deal with their addiction.

    If you didn't fall for it, you still have something to give up, so your not playing the game to it's full potential. give it up and embrace isolation.





































    ...I have no idea where i went with that...BTW i didn't fall for it mainly because i saw this post before i saw that pic.

    I must confess I started to fall for it when I began reading the first line, but if the FOTD did keep it's credibility for more than a few seconds, it quickly lost it when I came across the mention of the "uber cottage" in the blood moor. :lol:

    To me that was just too funny to be real, but some think my sense of humour a little odd.
