I have been playing Diablo 2 since it was released, I played Diablo 1 and Diablo 3 also...

I love Diablo 2, it is the best RPG/Hack n Slash ever made...

So for the longest time I have been hoping Blizzard would make some changes to the game and I waited and waited and nothing ever came from waiting, so I decided to check into D2 Modding and decided to make my own Patch (mod) changes to the game that would make it feel more like how it should have been...

BLizzard for the last 10 years have slowly been tuning down the game, nerfing and destroying the core gameplay... They also never released any new items except for one or two trinkets... lol what a story...

So here it is, Diablo 2 Patch 3.0 (My personal take on it)

I really hope you play it and enjoy it...

Dont use character editors once you have created a character, it will destroy your character, you also cannot use existing characters to play unless you remove all their gear due to the way I have modified some items in order to balance the game for higher item tiers... the best experience would be to make a new character..

Is there any new end game content? Like what PoD did with that key system?

Hi

Sorry never played POD, maybe give an idea of the key system you mention.

I did not want to stray away from the vanilla experience except for increased loots (uniques/sets), difficulty, modifications, runewords, some new mercs and some of the cube recipies and socktable (gloves/belts/boots) which allow for increase customization and modification.

Looks cool I try it when I came home. Perhaps my new mod to play with. But one question. Do all vanilla ladder RWs be in the game too and perhaps ubers or is it 100p the single player part you have worked on?

If you install the D2SE and PlugY addons which are in the ZIP then you will have the increased stash size, all the Runewords are available from single player and ladder with all the new ones.

The only thing is you cannot play with existing character you have to make a new one, you can use old character if take off all items because of the changes i made it will say bad data, but only because i changed some item levels etc to make the lower so i can add other higher items etc...

Never try use character editor it will wipe all the items if you already have some of the new items.

The reason why u want to start new character is also because you get more life per level where if you bring old character they wont have leveled with the new life total.

Ubers are also in the game but they insanely hard to kill, to finish hell mode alone is very very hard, best is to only start nightmare around level 38-40 and hell around 65-68, because the difficulty is much higher, best advise is farm normal for some items and make low rune words then same with nightmare etc before trying hell :)

Read the PDF there are also many upgrades you can do to items and you can socket gloves/belt/boots with runes/gems which act as weapon and not armor stats to help boost damage.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.
