    i got the updates but can't connect to bnet, so i started a single player game to test changes. he's a level 3 barb right now... just finished den.

    changes i have noticed:
    1. zombie have slightly altered graphics.
    2. corpsefire is green with a slightly different shape.
    3. when attacking those fallen guys they always seem to hit you once. i kill most of them in one hit, but they always seem to hit me regardless of me hitting them prior. it seems that they aren't "stunned" by my attacks and can continue with their swing they were executing when I attacked them. this has the effect of steadily picking at your life.
    4. when you are *completely* out of stamina switching to walk will not slowly regen stamina. you must have *some* stamina in order for walk to slowly regen it.
    5. i found a damaged wand with +1 to teeth. i never get damaged wands with skill modifiers.
    6. repairing items before selling them does not increase their sell value.
    7. the game just feels different... good different.

    i'll post more things as i discover them. :)

    Hah, aren't they the scepter one step down from Divine? I've never seen one... Once they lift the block % thing and 50% physical resist I'll get back on my S/S barb and find some quality shit. That way when the expansion actually does come out I can be ready to build new characters (since the old ones'll be pretty worthless...). I love how they're making rares and uniques easier to find. Less need to trade, and consequently less duping.

    I finally went on D2 yesterday, after i stopped a while back. My accounts were deleted from inactivity. So in case anyone cares, i'll be starting up again with the expansion pack so i don't seem like such a pitiful level.

    I'll be back home on like, July 5th. So i can play with ya guys then.

    I still have to work out the broadband at my new house, I'm moving in like a week. I'll have to survive on AOL free trials until I get hooked up :(. Heh, my PC doesn't even have a modem, just a network adapter. Seemed like a waste of $5 to me ;).

    They'll be installing DSL in August, so that means I have roughly a month between broadband. Better go down to the Thrifty and get me some Internet withdrawel patches.

    I noticed that yesterday, but really, 96 damage is inconsequential considering you normaly do 500+ damage with your own character attacking (barb WW, zon MS, Sorc static/orb/meteor/thunderstorm, Necro minions/CE+Amp, Paladin Conc+BH (or Conv+BH)/Zeal.
