    20. Some people think Diablo 2 is better played without LoD. Why?
    Diablo is harder in LOD, many "balancing" fixes take away from the enjoyment(whirlwind, multiple shot, nerfed, many spells/skills have cooldowns now, you can't Gample on set/unique items),, Nightmare/Hell are much harder due to resist penalties increase, forcing players(generally) to gear up alot better than they would in D2 classic. I know there's ALOT more, but thats mostly it.

    21. Name the Barbarians signature skill.
    Whirldwind, for his impression of the Tasmanian Devil.

    Necro: Summoning classes, skills contain passive bonuses to pets
    Paladin: Has no auras(must use spirits to do so instead), less reliable as tanking

    2. What does the Assassin have in common with the Barbarian and the Sorceress? In what are they opposites?
    Barbarian: Primary melee attackers, they have "passive" bonuses within their skill trees which give +movement, they both have passive abilities as well (Barb: dual weild 2h's, Assassin: Can lockpick anything, no other class have passive abilities in that sense)
    Sorceress: Elemental attacks, traps mimic certain Sorceress spells.

    3. What does Baal have in common with the Amazon?
    Both are ranged attackers, both can make copies of themselves.

    4. What's ironic about not knowing if Baals soulstone is destroyed and Tyrial actually destroying something Baal corrupted?
    It's the Worldstone by the way, the irony is it ends up becoming corrupted anyhow, and must be destroyed as a result.

    5. What character class(es) does Nihlahtak represent?
    An extremely powerful version of the Necromancer

    6. Which other two characters in the Diablo games most resemble Nihlahtak?
    Assassin: most of her armor is dark

    12. What is the most useless quest reward?
    Anya "Personalizing" an item of your choice.

    13. How come Harrogath is the only Barbarian stronghold still standing?
    Just so happens the Barbarians that are there, are powerful enough to keep the seige troops at bay.

    14. What is the name of the quest in which you have to beat the Ancients?
    "Rite of Passage"

    15. Regardless if it's true or not, does it make sence to say the Ancients are more powerful than Baal in gameplay terms? How about story-wise?
    Gameplay terms: yes, due to power in numbers, Lore-wise: I would say no, I mean com'on! He's one of the prime evils!

    Cool, for the most part you did fairly well, although some you got partially right.

    1) Yes, but what about the setting D1-D2 LOD took place in? wasn't Sanctuary another area that happened to be "saved" from the corruption of the Worldstone?

    2) I expected this kind of answer, I assumed you got this one from the strategy guide, there's a few different ones, none of which are clear cut, according to Blizzard North's section on Baal's strategy, it's mentioned the clone has only 35% of the real Baal's hp, so if the real Baal happened to have 100k (100,000) hp at the moment, his clone would have 35k (35,000), and yes the clone hits just as hard, but is easy to spot if you notice his hp dropping alot faster than the original. However, a strategy I used as a Frost Sorceress was taking advantage of the fact when I freeze/slow him, he turns blue like what a monster usually does, so, when he clones, his clone isn't blue from the freezing effects, and I can take it from there.

    3) Yes, since it has the highest max damage in the game.

    4) Sorry if this one confused you, physical is right, but leech effects are just well, effects, not magic or the sort, what I was looking for is actually resistance to curses, and magic (not a specific element, this is a seperate resist to ALL spells in general).

    5) Yep that's correct.

    6) Correct-o.

    7) Almost aced this, you got undead and demon, but specifically the other is Animal, not beast.

    8) Yep, 100%+ merely suffers diminishing returns.

    9) Yes, since the charged bolts have a thorns effect with them as well, generally it's kinda hard to find lightning resist early on too, ouch.

    10)Yes, possible but extremely difficult, blends in too well with the other cows.

    11)Yeah, definitely.

    12)You're right about those three, the other two are Ventar the Unholy, and Achmel the Cursed.

    13) Physical? All I saw were fire-immune, I guess it's a matter of luck with the random stuff.

    14) Exactly, funny, I only learned about that recently, pretty interesting.

    15)Yes, although I don't recall whirlwind being so, maybe because it was hard for enemies to get a hit off of you when you did it?

    16) Yes

    17) Yes, appreciate the detail as well.

    18) Ah, now this was a trick question, but you are right, pretty crafty the way you put it too, nice.

    19) Yeah, haven't seen this one drop ever myself, I personally don't think Indestructable is worth it though....

    20) Actually it is false, the numbers of them are the same, as far as stats of them or drops, who knows?

    21) Heh, of course not.

    22) Right you are.

    I'd give you a 47 / 50, I'll try making another one soon, this quiz stuff is surprisingly interesting.
