If you try a new character does it work then, since it seems that it doesn't work if you continue with your previous char.

I just tested it with Barb, players 8, and I was shocked, especially about gold and item drop rate compared to previous patch (001)...at players 8. :o

But I like it that way, makes the game more interesting, at least for me. :thumb:

Or sth went wrong on my side. :?:

Anyway, after cleaning den of evil and whole map outside on players 8 this is what was in my inventory, I usually pick yellow gear only plus rings/amu/jews of course, and look an amount of gold after I sold few things on sec pic, of course, you can see that there are no gems at all:

EDIT:

With Sorc was better, almost 12k of gold after 1st quest.
► Show Spoiler


Anyway, is it just me or am I the only one that doesn't see the difference between players 1 and 8.

I'm sure that there was some difference before, but now:

The only difference is that I get 1 amulet with P1, where with P8 I will get more amulets, even some ring and jew.

Everything else seems to be the same.

Someone, please enlighten me a little. :scratch:

First you need to delete patch_d2.mpq, and then start the launcher, then latest version will be correctly downloaded.


that's not required anymore
but you can do it if you want to force a new download

Does the patch not apply to previously created Median XL 2017 characters? If so that would explain why I'm not seeing the changes post patch install.

i got a question on the way:

is it intentionally that the replacement of pummel uses the slow attack animation of treewarden? ( i stopped at lvl 20 with the char because its just so much weaker now)

Hello guys, sorry if I am stupid but I have just found a "Scroll of the Zakarum" dropped by Andariel that says it is the Challenge level 11 and I have to kill Death Projector at level 90. I wanted to find additional information in documentation but couldn't about other challenges I might have missed. Can you help me with this one pls? Thnaks, I'm kinda new.
