Diablo II: LoD Resources Appear
9:58 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
It has been less than a week since Blizzard's Diablo II: Lord of Destruction appeared on shelves, and already a tremendous wealth of information about this expansion has appeared online. From detailed lists of the new weapons and other objects you can now find to extensive catalogs of Rune combinations, these resources will have the answers you seek for almost any question. No doubt compiled during the extensive beta test period for this expansion, these resources can prove valuable for both beginners who just want to survive the game and for veterans who want to squeeze every last advantage out of the many changes made to gameplay.
One of the largest resources has been posted by Blizzard itself. Known as The Arreat Summit, this astoundingly in-depth resource starts with a FAQ and then proceeds to exhaustive lists of every new monster, weapon, quest, skill, item -- you get the idea. If you want a list of all Exceptional Necromancer Shrunken Heads, it is right here.
For those who don't want to be drowned in stats but who still want to dig into the new features of the game, PlanetDiablo has posted a page dedicated to Runes and their various combinations. Learn how to mix and match your Runes to create the ultimate weapon or shield -- or to avoid making a sword into the equivalent of a butter knife.

And finally, for those of you getting stymied by Act V, GBASE.ch has posted a complete walkthrough for that new adventure in the Barbarian highlands. Check it out as a last resort if you have resolved to beat the game over the holiday weekend.
