Normal difficulty Act 1-5 tips. My last experience with this mod was at least 5 years ago, and I'm pretty sure I didn't get out of Act 1 back then.
I picked up Median XL back in June, and had not played vanilla D2 or any other mod in 15 years or so.
I didn’t want to waste time trying to figure things out on my own, so came across the guide subforum, and settled on this one.
Read through some other pages like Cube Recipes for starters, and then affixes, TU, SU, RW items, etc as you get further.
I had no trouble at all until Hell Diablo, which wasn’t really bad either I just died 2 or 3 dozen times, and probably my fault, not enough fire res or something. This guide got me through at least half of the uber content... and was running Fauntz, farming Tganze, etc, before I switched to the War Cry build.
Early/mid game was a breeze though, just whip up cheap runewords then make some TU, invest your skill points/attributes correctly and you’ll be in the late game before you know it
