I hear you XD I've done over 6 different builds in Diablo 2, up to level 85. Two different builds to level 90, and my main build, the Zealadin, to level 95.
Yeah I was a huge Diablo 2 freak I havent played any other games in that time.
I had a bunch of LVL 90+ Chars. First a Hammerdin (I know lame but its a strong character and is perfect for rune runs)
And my precious smiter ( I destroyed once all 3 uber bosses within minutes alone in a 3 player game)
and my love was HC mode and to make it extra hard with selffound items only. I probably killed the countess a million times
But I have to admit I never found a zod in my whole life. Even though I tried it highest rune was IST GUL (hellforge) and dozends of mals ums puls. once I found a ber but some other guy was quicker (probably used pick it). Damn cant wait for Diablo 3. Hopefully they will prevent the cheats and dupes this time. Without that the game would be even better.
