This is a modification for Diablo II: LOD that revamps skills for all characters and allows new ways to play Lord of Destruction.

Additions to Current Build.

-Most are tentative but most probably finalised if I'm lazy.
-Added runeword recipes so that you can use any weapon, armor with the needed runes to
create variant crafted items based on the runeword.
ie ... you can do a ""Breath of the Dying"" Claw with any claw + the req runes.
-Added some new recipes based on LOD v1.08 based uniques, ie -> Shako +40% life,etc,
refer to recipe page or forum.
-Added in a more new monsters with diff AI/skills etc all over.
-Changed some drops again, ie .Corpsefire will now drop all the basic uniqs again.
Amber/Jade/Sapphire will drop a uniq item most of the time.
-Moved some superuniques around, some new, some old to make it more interesting.
-Mausoleum will have some Super Skeletons that drop Act 4-5 items, so if you want to get
better items early on, visit there.
-Crypts is still a kill diablo then enter area.
-Act 2 changes, if you take the dungeon route to get the staff+viper amy, it'll be mostly
undeads, If you take the outdoors thru Fangskin, it'll be mostly non-undead. Made it so
that diff character has advantages on the diff route.
-Act 2 revamp almost done, still some monsters + things to take care of.
-Act 4 has more changes, the 3 diablo guardians are new demons with new skills, might change
again later.
-SnapChip changed for this build.
-On Act 1, If you come across a Bridge, there'll be trolls(Savage), If you kill them, you'll
get Gems, Norm = Chipped, NM = Flawed, Hell = Normal, this is done so that you can do
recipe requiring Chipped/Flawed Gems. Trolls will only appear on Bridges and nowhere else
in the game.
-Ancient Kaa has unique drops but be careful. Act 2 Tombs. He's more powerful than most superuniques.
-Think there are around 50 or more new monsters and still lots to do.

Additions to v1.08.

Act 1 is fully revamped for now ... 2,3,4,5 will be on later. Once done I'll release
another version.

-Act 2,3,4,5 has some additional monsters but will be revamped again.
-Additionals will come in later after I'm done with Act 2-5 revamps.
-Remember to always use a hireling, you'll most probably need to get a hireling asap + throw
in a weapon to make sure you get all the help you can to play AR on Act 1. There's a
purpose of having Asheara and Greitz in Act 1 and the purpose is to help. Get a pole type
weapon on Greitz hire to inrease the dmg multiple times, Sword on Asheara, Bow on Kasha hire.
-Amber,Jade,Sapphire has hi % of sets/uniq drops, so kill them as many times as you want to
try getting better equipment.
-All the superuniques in Act 1 is different from LOD originals for now, some others in 2-5
has also been changed for this release but not finalised.
-too lazy to type anymore so I'm just gonna leave it to you ppl to find the new things.

for a full changelog, you can read it here


Please post at my forum at PhrozenKeep on which version you like/play ... I'll most
probably only update on the 1 that ppl mostly play. If there are not many ppl who plays
either AR mod ... I'll just stop public releases and help other mod-makers make mods that
ppl play ... :)

For Bug reports or anything that u wanna talk about ... put it in the forums

Forum: <- go here

Pls use the forum instead of emailing me so that every1 can help each other and myself.


-Make a backup of the file Patch_D2.mpq in your Diablo2 directory before copying this mod over it.
(Most probably located in C:\Program Files\Diablo II)
-Make a backup of your char files that you wanna use for this mod b4 playing.
(C:\Program Files\Diablo II\save)
-To install ... just unzip the Patch_D2.mpq into your Diablo II folder.
-Play the game in Hell for the best experience.
-Remember you can use your existing chars to play the this mod and try playing Hell.
-You can start a new char with this mod and then use that char on normal LOD too.
-Use ""players 2"" for normal AR(Natalya10x) play, Use ""players 3-8"" for Harder to extreme
play. I usually play on ""players 4""(20x) for Norm/NM and ""Players 2""(10x) on Hell

For new players:
-Crypts-Burial Grounds -Act 1 is as hard as Act4 and Act5 ... so most probably it's too hard
unless your char can at least kill diablo.
-Lvling and difficulty - intended completion levels Norm=40, NM=70, HELL = ??
-Make sure you kill Blood Raven in Norm for an early boost.
-In Blood Moor ... when starting new chars ... go for Nest Kills ... it'll give u a few good lvls mabbe up to lvl 10 for another early boost ... but it won't be that easy.
-Killing Corpsefire will give you good startup items ... this is how I play on Realms.
-Try starting new characters to take advantage of the new skills.
-Make sure you read thru all the changes on all AR versions from ARv1.00 to the latest
release to know what is changed on AR.
-Make sure you check the scrshots on my site to see the new things in AR
-Look thru the AR Info, Maps, Cube Recipes, Hirelings pages on my site for before
starting out.

*** Changes that might affect chars(You still can revert back) - Only for AR-SE ***
- Skills are changed and chars will not be the same when u use your existing chars, your chars will be a lot more powerful
- Reverting back to Original LOD will affect char skills.
- Added in Megainventory, cube, stash, increase, so reverting back to normal LOD might
result in Item loss ... the Megainventory is done by Fusman(IMHO 1 of the coolest D2
modders) and Phalzyr ... so if all Credits goes to them ... :)

This mod is provided as is where is and no part of this Mod is to be distributed or reuse
without my permission ... Whatever ... ;)
If you like this mod, just realise that in this world, there are people who are unfortunate,
and live your life to the fullest of your potential.


If you want a full list or Ancestral Recall horadric cube recipes go here

Due to the fact that I'm a damn lazy guy I might not reply emails ... if you seriously want replies ... post in my forum ... unless it's real personal ... :)

we should find some one that has a account and get them to d/l and then host them so others who dont can mods should be free smucks
