    Just killed Diablo in my PD2 playthrough. Mind you, last time I played D2LoD was ~15 years ago. I think I'm somewhat underleveled for Diablo normal - I'm level 25 and he hurt, especially his fire-beam attack. I also have rather bad gear.

    By the way, I don't remember but what happens when your gear's durability drops to 0? Does it get destroyed (disappears from the inventory) or not? I'm asking because somewhere in Act 3 I noticed my sorc had no breastplate and I remember having one. I could've just dropped it somewhere... or it got destroyed in Duriel fight (he killed me 2 times). That's why I'm asking.

    Every fantasy game ever.
    In D2 if an item goes to 0 durability it becomes "disabled" until repaired. A weapon will no longer be used or armor will look like it's missing. Ethereal items can't be repaired and have lower durability at the trade of being much more powerful than usual. You can negate that by giving it to a mercenary or slapping a Zod in that beast.

    In D1 if an item hit 0 durability it was gone for good.

    This is the way I play Diablo, just basking in the atmosphere and the world before the massive violence I enact upon hell itself.

    (also /players 8)

    This is the way.

    Yeah, I know hellfire had durability pots to add to items and certain mods used that shit. I don't recall if there was a mod/patch to fix it so durability didn't degrade.

    Hey Griswold! Fix my shit ok.

    "OCH!! "

    Ah, that's what us old-school fossils used to refer to as 'reading the manual'.

    But isn't it kinda *late* to read the manual? I mean, the concept was very nice first time around, when they expanded in D2 it become questionable imo, went off the rails in D3 but who cares? It's not even the proper RPG. Slash-slash. And now it's 2021. Dunno, if it works for some people then good for them but I cannot really "immerse" into D2 and beyond for a long, long time. Which doesn't mean I cannot enjoy them, mind you. And by the way, I adore Fallout 1 & Arcanum's manuals.

    Only for old people like you. ;) There's plenty of young people that haven't played D1 or D2. Why deny them the opportunity to play through it like we did?

    Diablo 2's only problem was that it didn't have Succubi in the OG game, and the Succubi in LOD looked like fucking harpies. Absolutely disgusting.

    Well, FUCK the ENIGMA rune word, too.

    Really? I'm sure as fuck both Daedalos and The Brazilian Slaughter have done many playthroughs already. They just like to LARP, I guess. Every man has weaknesses, what can you do.

    Uhh, you meant unironically? Ffs, re-read the original quote then. But speaking of young people who will be playing D2R as their first time with D2 I assure you they will not read shit or treat it like an RPG in the first place, rather a co-op game for slashing stuff.

    All I'm saying is that there will be new players and to give them a break.

    Are mods going to be possible at all online? A fix for the negrodin would be really nice.

    No. They might allow you to modify it for single-player, but considering it's nublizzard I'd very much doubt it.
    You will eat the bugs.
