Diablo 2 Resurrected (Remastered)


Recommended Posts

After spending a healthy amount of time in Diablo 3, I've heard many a time that Diablo 2 is still worth checking out. I suppose this will be a great opportunity since I value aesthetics in games a bit more than I should.

I think my memories of D2 are better left as memories, although to be honest, if it weren't for the 90-day login rule on the old Battle.net, I'd still give my old characters a brief run every now and then. I had a 96 javazon, 96 spearazon, and a party-favorite 95 freeze/immolate max attack speed M'avina's bowazon that I rebuilt once from 95 before the stat reallocation patch. All three of them were built to solo Uber Diablo and the javazon and spearazon could facetank him. I farmed so many Annihilus charms and later Hellfire Torches to fund my trading for some ridiculously valuable items including enough high runes to re-roll my spearazon's ethereal Breath of the Dying +3 Matriarchal Pike to 390% and create Chains of Honor and Enigma runeword armors, as many 40/15 jewels as I needed to outfit my characters' open-socketed items, and an ethereal 199% damage/9% leech Titan's Revenge (the ethereal 200/9 was a non-permed dupe, so I made sure I traded for a safe one). I also had some rare dual leech jewelry from D2 classic, some that I found myself and some that were permed dupes I got when a guy quitting the game gave away his stuff. I had so much fun with my spearazon especially that my weapon switch was an ethereal Lacerator in order to cast amp damage so even physical immune monsters were no problem. Any of my three amazons could solo hell difficulty with no regard for monster immunity and I even gave my Act 2 hirelings runewords like Delirium, Doom, Eternity, and Infinity.


I wrote so much damn jargon in the previous paragraph that it's obvious I basically broke the game and had fun doing it. Those were some great memories that I haven't thought of in years.


Nowadays, I don't really have time for online gaming anymore, but I no longer trust Blizzard to do anything right anyway. There isn't as much for them to possibly screw up in Diablo II Resurrected, but still...I read about the Warcraft III Reforged fiasco, quietly SMH at the PR gaffe that was the Diablo Immortal reveal, and am still bitter over how I quit D3.


The clowns running D3 didn't synchronize the end of the first ladder season with the new game-changing patch at the time, which screwed all of season 1's greater rift rankings up to that point because everyone who got the ideal post-patch loot drops were suddenly able to gain another 5-10 tiers in the greater rifts with less than a couple of weeks left in the ladder season. Therefore, I got knocked off the leaderboards with what would have otherwise been a ticket easily punched into the Battle.net record books.


At least I still got screenshots. I wish I had screenshots from D2 way more though.
