Now I am slowly walking through the game with a melee assassin, listening to NPCs watching cinematics etc. I was amazed that by doing this with 2-3 other people in the game I made it to lvl 32 by the time I hit baal, that was without replaying anything! I just twinkled her though and might not walk through nm, although it was fun.
I play d2lod every day still, but it's hard to find anyone who plays legit any more. I'd like to play with someone or several someones who play the game the way it was intended, without any of the botting or the jsp-ing. Just helping each other out and enjoying the game. Are there any other like-minded players out there? I hope so.
