Ladder Reset Announced!

The ladder reset announced so long ago and official launch of patch 1.13 is upon us! Bashiok has announced that the reset will occur on March 23:

Official Blizzard Quote:

We will be resetting the Diablo II ladder on March 23 with the release of patch 1.13. We anticipate all Diablo II realms to be down for approximately six hours during the reset. More specific information on realm availability on the day of the reset will be posted in the Status forum. When the ladder is reset, all existing ladder characters will be converted to non-ladder. All characters and items being converted to non-ladder will remain intact, but once converted these characters will no longer have access to ladder content such as creating ladder-only rune words. For more information on ladder characters please visit the Arreat Summit Realm Character Types page at

Official Blizzard Quote:

The changes in 1.13c are extremely minimal, just to clarify that you shouldn't be expecting big new features or changes versus what was seen in 1.13b.

Special thanks to Rykker for alerting me to the news first, and to Ygdrazill for posting the first thread about it!
