Enter Sanctuary, a world of disorder and chaos as the mighty Diablo has been raised again. But wait...you've heard that all before, right? Think again. In this runaround, there's only three options - Fight, Flight, or Plight as your enemies work harder to defeat you, with new abilities to help protect the Prime Evils.

But on the flip side, you have new equipment to help battle your stronger foes, and have new talents learned. Deciding its not enough, you can also get a second, or third, or fourth job in addition to your questing and whatnot. The Horadrim are also on your side, granting the cube a new ability - Cube Level. Rare items are made here.

Enough talk. This world needs saving.

Place the entire folder in your Diablo II directory, then install the hotfix files over top of it and run the .vbs, then you'll be ready to go.

You think you could change the Difficult settings? So instead of the difficults of the character you can chose how hard you wona play?

Because I really wona play Necro, but I can't get to lvl 2 before I get owned...

Or is it to hard to get so you can choose Easy, Normal, Hard, Nightmare on the start?

eezstreet Sep 5 2009 replied:

The difficulty of the game is not based on the character class per se. The real reason why it is harder to use Necro/Sorc is because Necro/Sorc are significantly weaker in game start than say a Barbarian or a Druid.

Initially this was to prevent noobs with half a brain from going "hurr de hurr hurr, let's make a sorc and run through the game spamming <insert skill here>! hurr de hurr hurr". But in the long run this proves difficult for people who just want to see what its like to play the game as these two character classes.

I have two options on how to fix this problem.

A) Give Necro a sword with Raise Skeleton on it, and give Sorc an orb or something with a + to a decent skill.

B) Increase Teeth/Charged Bolt power so that they are more powerful.

I would go for A. Because right now you get killed on 2-4 hits and can use teeth thing 4 times and that's not enough to kill a enemy so I run in and out to get refuel of mana and life...

Just to get to lvl 2 so I can get summon skeleton. but after 1 hour I got bored and saw I had 259/500 So I quit and made this post.
