Probably the most advanced TQ mod to date, Diablo 2 Immortal introduces unique new skill mechanics and elaborate balance systems to combine what people loved about Diablo 2 with the possibilities of Immortal Throne. Play as an Amazon, Barbarian, Sorceress, Necromancer, Assassin or Paladin - or any hybrid combination of them - to experience both games anew.
The final big update to both D2 Immortal and its sister mod D2 Lilith comes with a huge list of improvements, and finally completes what had been planned out over 2 years ago. It adds the last remaining class to the roster, and also implements every single idea and fix that has come up since.

* Small 4:3 resolutions show a black bar behind the skill menu
- Native to Kirii's UI, which mine is based on. Just use another resoultion.
* Relics cannot be attached to javelins
- Current state of the art for 1h ranged weapons. May never be possible.
- Though they are strong regardless, one can use the Defiler's "relics in all" mod to allow it.
* Using the "Mod" option in TQVault shows proper item pictures, but fewer characters.
- That option is only designed for mods started directly from "custom game", like Lilith.
- Use the regular Vault to transfer D2I items. You can distinguish the [?] by their Tag names.
As the name suggests, D2I is built upon the Immortal Throne expansion, so use it with normal TQ at your own peril. Loading it over a modded base game is possible, and usually works, but do so at your own risk. Camera mods etc. are fine.
Though D2I does fix many issues of the original game by itself, and all files it does include are of the latest version, it is also (generally) recommended that you get the Bugfix Fanpatch.
