Diablo 2 lord of destruction

Diablo II: Lord of Destruction

It was a long time ago, early 1997 lớn be more exact, when the town of Tristram fell & was subsequently cleansed in an epic isometric dungeon romp known as Diablo. The clever guys at Blizzard created a game with a whole new feel, an action game that almost fooled you into lớn thinking it was a role-playing adventure.

You need a fairly sturdy character to lớn make it outside the new town in Act V.


The announcement of its sequel was all the rave, resulting in an almost unprecedented number of pre-orders. Finally, in June 2000, Diablo II erupted onto the shelves to lớn enormous popularity. In Diablo II, Blizzard expanded their fantasy world into lớn four new regions, each with numerous quests and friendly NPCs, each with a vast wilderness populated by scores of little demons. We ventured through these areas in which lurked Diablo’s Soulstone-mates – Mephislớn, The Lord of Hatred, and Baal, The Lord of Destruction. We vanquished Mephisto lớn và Diablo himself, but Baal, the last of the Prime Evils, remained unscathed.

Ain’t No Hellfire

Lord of Destruction is but an expansion paông xã khổng lồ Diablo II that offers the same type of hack-and-slash action. Or is it? The disc version requires installation of the original game và invites you lớn either import your original characters, or lớn create new ones. Your characters must have sầu completed Diablo II’s four acts before they may enter the new Act V, which begins in the đô thị of Harrogath, located somewhere up in the frozen North.


In addition lớn the ubiquitous Deckard Cain, last of the Horadryên ổn, Harrogath has five more denizens that are more than willing khổng lồ attover khổng lồ all of your shopping, repair, hiring, và gambling needs. Conversation choices và dialogue are as sparse & limited as ever, but this game is not about gathering information from NPCs. In fact, if you’re progressing for the third or fourth time through the first four acts, you’ll probably not even stop lớn listen.

After the furor over the original Diablo waned, a lot of folks were surprised khổng lồ see that Blizzard handed over the rights to lớn vì chưng an add-on lớn its stellar title to lớn Synergistic Software. Hellfire proved khổng lồ be a merely average expansion – single-player only, adding two new dungeon tilesets và monsters, as well as a few items, quests and one extra playable character. People almost immediately hacked it lớn add multiplayer tư vấn (but were not able to lớn vày so on Battle.net, Blizzard’s không tính tiền Internet server). Many people were forced to lớn play the new areas solo, however, and a significant portion of Diablo fans didn’t even bother.

The quests aren’t all that original in Act V.

Charmed, I’m sure.

Act V is a cold realm, so expect plenty of ice attacks.

Damn these undead mages.


There’s some point in Lord of Destruction where you’re just in awe of all the sheer volume of stuff, from items and skills khổng lồ innumerable monster classes. This may be, hands down, the most definitive sầu add-on khổng lồ any game on record. It rivals other products whose expansions actually improved on the quality of the original game – think AoE II: The Conquerors or StarCraft: Brood Wars. How did you ever live without the dual-weapon configuration, allowing a one key stroke switch between them? This feature gives your character much more combat versatility, along with sixteen (instead of eight) hotkeys for spells & skills.

The twice-as-large stash (your tòa tháp storage chest) is wonderful, giving you a lot more time to decide what you want to lớn keep & what you don’t, which is especially important now, since the thousands of new items—including new charms, jewels and runes—present seemingly never-ending possibilities. It’s only fortunate that now you can equip your hired mercs with some of the items you find – particularly weapons, armor and helms – so even second rate magical gear won’t go khổng lồ waste.

The click-repair, click-broken-time-one-at-a-time yawner was replaced a Repair All button. Add to lớn these the new Assassin & Druid character classes (rounding the total number up khổng lồ seven), and you have one heông chồng of a versatile quái vật romp.
