Hi,

Well I had to install Diablo II before it would let me install Lord of Destruction.

Well playing with my Necromancer yesterday I got as far as Andariel and couldn't get her yet so have to uplevel him more before I go back.

Sure do need a lot of Anditode potions to stay alive with her but I have gotten her before in preveious games and will again.

I am going to finish Diablo 2 and then install LOD. I would love to have the larger stash and 800x600. It will give me something to look forward to when I finish the first game.

Trying to level up before going on to act 2. It's hard, lots of hack and slash--little reward. I found that Tristam is a good place to level faster. I've killed Blood Raven several times for good loot. Nearly to level 14.

I believe you can take your current character and convert them to an expansion set character. That would have the advantage of the 800x600 and the larger stash.

That said, I don't know if you can take your current character, convert to an expansion character *and* maintain the information about what quests you've finished.

I finished the Den of Evil. I love the beams of light piercing the dark when it's been cleared. On my way out, I find there's a special totem that makes your fighting better... Oh well, next dungeon I'll know.

Hi,

Still up leveling my Necromancer because I want to use a higher damage Axe I gambled for with the trader in town and I need one more number on my strength to be able to use it. It has 2 fire gems in it so it will be a really nice present for Andariel when I go after her.


Can't wait to be able to summon a Fire Golem. Hmmmm.

In the Cold Plains, level 7 and climbing.

I can't wait till I get the person who can identify items for me. I have the tomb and regularly buy scrolls, but what a bummer. I'm pleased town portal actually allow you to return to the original spot.

I haven't tried gambling with him. If the rewards are good, I'll have to try it.

I've finally leveled to 14, so headed to a new land. I found out that each time I killed Blood Raven, my experience would drop.

Yes you can. It's a full conversion.

After checking into the gamble option, I deduce that it is taking a risk and buying something which is not identified. Most of his inventory I couldn't afford and I wasn't interested in the things I could afford. At the prices he wants, they must have a lot of magic attached.

Later--I did take a gamble on a belt. Paid 3000+ for a belt worth a couple hundred. Bad deal.

The new home area is much larger but I haven't found a healer. Lots of manna shrines but they are not as nice as a healer. Went out in the desert to level up some more. The enemies are tougher but leveling is faster. They also dropped some nice armor.

Edit--finally found the healer. Have done most of the tomb in the desert and am at level 15 and can start the first quest in the sewers now.

Wow, Pokey, you're moving fast, I usually like to be level 17 or 18 before Lut Gholein. Watch out for those fire archer skeletons in the sewers!

The sewer quest is finished. Easy except for the boss. I suspect the next quest won't be so easy. Nearly to level 16.

Hi,

Well the gamble is a random risk. You may get a really nice or even rare item or you may get junk. I have gotten some nice stuff and now and then try to see what I get. Its only money and I don't do it all the time.

I am now level 17 and still not able to get that you know what. She just hits me a couple of times and I am done for. Have to keep trying and I know I got her before so have to do it this time. Jeeze what a pain to keep dying.

Can't beleive you got her at an earlier level Pokey. You must have been luck.

Magic, I just cleared out most of her minions and then she chased me to the stairs. I would get a couple hits in with my superior sceptor with all the upgrades I got in a quest, and then run upstairs to heal. Prayer was a help there. Then I went back down the stairs, a couple hits and repeat. Didn't take that long. Are you using magic? I only used melee.

I am in Dry Hills getting ready for the assault on Halls of the Dead. Also trying to make more use of my different skills by hotkeying them and bouncing between them.

Just finished Blood Raven quest last night. I have to be careful what time I start a new area, it was way too late when I went to bed because I wanted to finish the burial grounds before shutting off the game. Now that I know you'll always start back in town (or town equivalent in this case), it can be kind of important to clear something out once before shutting down.

Mind you, it seems like if I want more experience, I can just head back that way next time and there will be plenty of experience to gain again.

I finished the Halls of the Dead and have the cube. There didn't seem to be any tough boss at the end. I kept looking for one and stumbled over the cube. I lost my best weapons in Dry Hills. Didn't pay attention and died. Rather than leave the game and collect my body. I was determined to show them. I died quickly two times more and wasn't able to recover my superior sceptor with all the great upgrades and a nice crystal sword. Won't try that again.

I checked out the Lost Oasis and found the waypoint. There are lots of clouds of insects. How do I battle them? I only have level 1 fireball.
