    The Return...*chuckles*

    Good day, ladies and gents....

    I am back, having just reinstalled DII after a really long hiatus. I also pulled ATMA down from the web, and am not quite sure how I am going to go ablut this....either I am gonna beg for items for a starter...*LOL*...or go from ground zero, and see what I can find. I was last around for patch 1.10, and had a good amount of fun with ye olde fishymancer, so might begin there, or maybe there is now another build that works well in 1.11b...any thoughts or opinions greaty appreciated...and no, I have no WF at present, nor am I a fan of the squid...*chuckles*

    Welcome back!

    I was gonna make a post like this after I started playing D2 all over again, but I was afraid of getting my shins kicked all over again. :p

    Nah. In theory old-timers are safe as you've been through the shin kicking once before. Caution is advised however, there are some of the young 'uns who'll kick again without a second thought. Honestly, there's no honour there. :undecided:

    Welcome back to the forums anyway, with luck you'll be welcomed back by plenty of golds and greens!

    Just because you guys won't, doesn't mean I'm a good person.

    *kicks shins*
    *steals pants*
    *steals wallet*

    I'm in the same boat as you are... just reinstalled a few days ago since my 360 decided to brake down. As he said, any 1.11b ground zero build suggestions would be great!

    Welcome back, both of you. :)

    As far as builds go, anything that worked in v1.10 will work exactly the same in v1.11/1.11b, with the exception of builds using the charge synergy bug (Marrowwalk boots on a bone necro, Carrion Wind ring on a Rabies druid, and so on). However, with the new armor runewords (one for each class) as well as RWM (runeword mod, thus enabling the realm-only runewords for single player), a lot of builds have become more viable. For example, it's much easier to build a FCR-based caster with the Spirit runeword, and the Insight runeword is a big help to any mana-intensive builds.

    My advice would be to check Catt's thread here; it explains what is new with v1.11. The only difference between v1.11 and v1.11b is that the Peace runeword (with a 'chance to cast Valkyrie on striking' mod) no longer triggers this effect when placed o a hireling, as this crashed the game. You can also check the SPF build guides for character ideas, but feel free to try something new and off-the-wall too.

    Now I am afraid to come back.... I lost all of my shin pads. I am also new back to the game, and am wondering what builds are popular with 1.11; I manage dto save my old characters, but have completely lost the trick of how to play them. MAH!!!

    Is the squid even still here?

    Well, just finished up Act 1 normal with the ever-popular fishymancer...it's like riding a bike. I also love it when the game decides whether you ought to be twinking or not, or begging for items...*chuckles* First skull cap I got had 2 sockets, immediately followed by a pair of chipped topaz. Once wearing this uber-chapeau, the Smith was kind enough to drop a nice gold dagger...*LOL*...and then my old buddy Bone Ash dropped a green cap....*LOL* Apparently, I am being forced to do this untwinked, with contributions from the nice monster folks along the way...and now, perhaps I will get through the part I hate the most (read: Maggot Lair) before I go to bed for the night...
