Well, guys, I'm going up to (fiery) New SOuth Wales for a week, so I'll not be able to ckeck this forum until I get back. Not that I've been posting much here recently anyway, but I keep an eye out on the tone and effects thread often. Fendermonkey77, think you can beat off all those abusive posters while I'm gone, lol? Considering how much stuff is being posted here recently, it's going to be real interesting to see how much is here for me to read when I get back.

Have a great time 'n stuff.

Sadly I won't be posting much either as I won't have my own phone line until Tuesday. Now while the board suffers, my Diablo 2 game seems to be getting much better. I guess there's an upside to everything.

Absi-friggin'-lutely.

I'm playing a Druid right now...
Well, when I'm not at my mom's doing the internet thang.

Word of warning: Beating the second act with elemental magics is a bitch.

Aha . . . cool. I stopped playing that game after I couldn't beat that Duriel piece of **** on Nightmare. I had a level 50 barbarian, but he dropped me with one hit.

Any tips?

Is he that bastard at the end of the second act (who's currently mauling my poor druid)? I didn't have any trouble with him my second time through.

When I was playing a barbarian (Ug was destroyed when I swapped computers, I'm still saddened to this day), I found jump attacks to be quite effective. Most online players use Pikes with barbarians, but I've always been of the philosophy that nothing says love like a big axe. Also keep your town scroll spell on a hot key so you can jump in, attack, jump out, and when you're low on health potions, make a quick escape to town to recoop. Usually a character is especially sensitive to one specific kind of attack, be it poison, fire, cold, or electricity, try and figure that out. Also, remember your war cries, and that if you're having trouble at level 50, you'll probably demolish him at level 51 or 52. You just have to take the time to level up. However, if you're getting killed with one hit, your armor or your vitality need MAJOR improvements.

Yeah, Duriel is the big worm thing at the end of the second act.

Well, maybe "one hit" was a bit of an exaggeration. But I got trashed pretty quick. And since you lose experience when you die in Nightmare difficulty I wasn't eager to try again.

The problem is that he freezes you as soon as you come in the room. You can't do hit and run attacks, or any of that.

I still have my characters all backed up. I've got a pretty good amazon too, so maybe I'll give it another go. Do you ever play on Battlenet?

Rarely, my internet really isn't fast enough.

Try finding boots that increas your run/walk speed and stuff that resists cold and/or cuts down on freeze durations. Also, if I remember correctly, the bashing attack worked well.

You have to hit and run with that guy.

I've never played Diablo II on Battlenet. I don't like it cause you have to make a special online character and spend all this time building him up. It's a pain, and then you end up getting blown away by some level 60 character and losing all your stuff.

When the first Diablo came out I used to play it all the time on BNET. I was in a clan and all that good stuff. We'd form teams and ambush people, and steal their stuff.

*Sigh* . . . those were the good old days.

Maybe we can try open BNET sometime. I think you can use your local characters.

Yeah, you can.

Last suggestions:
Turn off the music Blizzard supplies and put on either Black Sabbath or Scissorfight.

Nothing quite like mauling a cluster of demons with a barbarian while listening to "The Most Dangerous Animal is Me."

Sounds like we should get together and have a Guitartricks hack-and-slash fest . . .
