Get real, folks, the diablo you all knew is dead, a few years ago i said right here in this forum that D3 had a pretty good chance of being blizzard first bust (i was flamed to death ofc), and what you know, its not even beta and its already looking that way.
PlugY for Diablo II allows you to reset skills and stats, transfer items between characters in singleplayer, obtain all ladder runewords and do all Uberquests while offline. It is the only way to do all of the above. Please use it.

Duping has been significantly reduced since the patch (and a subsequent fix by Blizzard). So far, I've FOUND three HR's with on-and-off play, and have yet to encounter a single duped item of any kind. HR's are still the currency. SoJ's are a bit more...meh... since they're more inaccessible than HR's and since duping is at a low.
