Diablo II v1.08 patch

This is a great improvement in gameplay for characters such as the sor. However I updated my Diablo and i lost everything i had. And No not all my stuff was hacked, (maybe 1 or 2). I lost everything, on my body and in my stash. I strongly recommend not downloading this patch. Good thing i back up my chars.

Diablo II v1.08 patch

The new patch is a big disgrace to the game. It makes the game unbearable to play. The new "balance" of characters actually just made things more worst for all characters besides the sorceress. If Blizzard wants to keep their hopes high for more players and sales for the expansion pack, they should remove the patch. In short, they patch has made players stop playing the game and made the game plain out horrible.

Whoa. This patch makes the game so hard! A level 37 pally with 1200 defense almost got killed by a skeleton boss in ACt1 hell by one hit. Nightmare hell is a killer. I feel sorry for the hardcore characters that died because of this. GL to all that play this game.
