I'm considering picking up D2 again since i'm bored out of my mind waiting for D3. However, the problem I tend to run into when trying to get back into D2 is that I've got no friends to play with. The game doesn't really hold my attention when i'm alone since normal mode is pretty easy, but still pretty long if you're trying to solo run without good items or whatever. Anyone know a good way to actually get into the D2 community, or am I barking up the wrong tree and should I just do something else to bide my time til May 15th?
You could try to use an editor to make your character start from Hell difficulty with some decent equipment. That way you can just concentrate on mobbing enemies until D3 gets released then you can start playing properly again.
At least that would solve your 'solo run without good items' issue - not sure about the whole D2 community thing though
