I checked everyplace but nothing turned up. Oh well, I have enough gold now that I can buy a shield. I did find a couple nice ones, but had no space in my inventory and they had to be identified to equip. I should have dropped some of my stuff.

I finished the Forgotten Tower and am on my way to the monastery. The prayer aura for the paladine is really handy.

Hi all,

Don't worry....you will find even better stuff as you get further into the game. smile

You can use scrolls to ID the stuff yourself.

My Paladin is way way ahead of my other players and I do like the moves he has. One skill really really makes him fast in hitting his axe..phew.

He may be in the 3rd or so area already but I haven't played him for a long time so don't remember for sure. I'll have to go see what the name of the place is where he is. Hmmm.

I have been just playing my other 3 people to move them along and they are getting some really cool skills now.

I finished the monastery and as a reward for returning the hammer I got some super upgrades to my superior sceptor. I can't use it yet because I'm not quite to level 12. I did find a large shield and this time I had a scroll to identify it. The zeal skill looks like it might be a great one to have and I'm working towards it. I'm going to have to do some leveling up before I attempt the next quest.

Hi,

I checked and my Paladin is level 29 and he is in the final area ready to go after Diablo. I think I will continue with my other people before I have to face that devil. No way right now.

I was playing my Sorceress today and she kept dying in the Monestary....oh well....a little at a time and we will have the hammer.

She is only level 13 ( I think) and not as strong as I would like but will upleavel soon.

Boy love her frostball spell. Pretty good but uses a lot of manna.

My credo with Diablo 2 is: anything that freezes/slows down the enemy will keep you alive. I never played a Paladin all the way to Diablo, but I can tell you with the Sorceress she is very effective with cold based spells. Frost Nova will slow down whole groups of monsters and do a little damage.

Some equipment has the Frost Nova spell on it. It will cast it randomly. When you are attacked.

Finally made it all the way through the jail. So many rooms and I was never sure I was heading the right way. I missed a way point in the first level but found the one in the inner cloister. Safe for the moment, we'll rest up for tomorrow. My paladine is at level 12.

Hi,

Well Thank You Schwab35 for that info and I will keep that in mind.

I think my Sorceress with her freeze spells is the best one so far but the Necromancer with his golems to help is pretty good too. smile

Way to go Pokey and you are ahead of me because I still keep dying before I get to the Smith with the hammer. Oh well....onward we go.

We will not give up.
We will not give up.
We will hang in there. smile

I just acquire the Diablo 2 battle chest. That's Diablo, Diablo 2, the expansion for Diablo 2 and the strat guide in one box. I should be back soon smile

Hi,

Oh what fun....Pib I hope you join us in this game and Welcome. smile

I just wanted to add that I discovered that by clicking on the letter O key you can give your archer a Helm and Armor for more protection for her.

I have no idea what I was looking for but this came up by pushing all of the letter keys.

I just wanted to share this if you didn't already know this.

Oh and I can't wait until I can use Frost Nova.

I have both Diablo 2 and LOD, the expansion. Should I have installed both instead of just Diablo 2? Would it do anything for my game? I understand that two new characters are available and other small changes, but is it anything significant?

The LOD expansion gives you more graphics options - IIRC, Diablo 2 couldn't do 800x600, where LOD can.

There are also lots more 'unique' magic items, and more things you can put in slotted items.

Finally, there's a whole new chapter, beyond Diablo himself, that's easily as big as each of the earlier chapters - no cheapskate option at Blizzard!

I'm currently playing a level 9 Druid - nice poison vines and rolling meteor spell! I've not got as far as the Monastery yet.

I've finished the game in the past playing as a Barbarian. Though I have to admit that the hack-n-slash dog piling style of the Barbarian suits me better than the stand-offish position of the magic users.

I highly recommend the expansion, it also allows you to keep your hired companion from one city all the way through the other acts and even into nightmare and hell mode, and they level up with you.

I've been making my way through the catacombs after the cathedral. The going is definitely tougher. Big spiders---ugh! I had to do every room in catacomb level 2 before I found the waypoint. Always a relief when that is done. I just leveled to 13. On to catacomb level 3 and eventually the big boss.

Andariel has been defeated. After all the work reaching her, she wasn't that tough. She conveniently came to the catacomb stairs so I could run up and heal easily. On to Act 2 after a good night's rest.
