Going Old School with Diablo II Resurrected

I bought Diablo II Resurrected, along with the rest of Team Spode, when it released, and then we sat on it for a few weeks until our fearless leader Lord Spode could update his windows to Windows 10. I didn't even realize that was a requirement, but it was! 

I'd give a legit review of the game, but everything the honest game trailer says about the game says it already!

Lord Spode was eventually successful in his quest and we finally played good ol' Diablo II together, which was great! Just like old times, in fact I believe it was the original Diablo II that was the first game Lord Spode and I played together all those years ago. (Or maybe it was the original Diablo . . . it's been so many years I can't remember.)

Side note: It's kind of weird in that I'm starting to get to the point where I'm sitting on games until specific days of the week when I can play them like this. Diablo II on Sunday nights and Far Cry 6 on Wednesday nights (when Lessah Ismorah and I do I best to "Liberatardo" in our goofiest fashion). Playdates are the best.

BUT, playdates also lead to wanting to play said games MORE on the off days when I'm not playing with the group! To those ends, I rolled a new online character in Diablo II so I could scratch that itch on the off days.

On Sundays I play as The Friendly Necromancer, but yesterday I rolled up this guy: Stingite the Barbarian.

Gotta love that Jawbone Skullcap look.

I figure eventually Stingite the Barbarian will be my magic find Barbarian that specializes in squishing bodies to find extra loot, and if he finds any good magic items for the group, I can pass them along through the shared bank.

Stingite is currently level 13 and hanging out in the Inner Courtyard of Act I. Before you know it, I'll be out of Act I and pushing forward in Act II. YES!

Truth be known the hardest thing I fought yet to date has been the wait times to even log in to Battlenet. 

127th . . . ugh . . .

At least that's the longest fight I've had to overcome to date in Diablo II.

Happy Dueling!

I spent Monday night with my Amazon, farming stuff for my Spode Sorc to ID and maybe use. Haven't found any upgrades yet, but wow, the Amazon is waaaaay tankier than LucretiaMacevil....

@Tipa -- I can see that, but I'm sure once LucretiaMacevil's mana regen is in place, nothing will stop her reign of terror!
