Following last weeks 'Rollback' of the Diablo II: US East Realm and as part of the preparation for the upcoming 1.09 patch for D2 and D2: LoD there have been several status updates from Blizzard posted on the Battle.net web site.
Some people have been experiencing problems with their D2 characters stored in the US East Realm; if you're still missing items in your inventory or having other character related problems due to the rollback, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "D2 USEAST ROLLBACK" including your Account Name, Character Name and the exact time and date you last accessed your character. Remember, do NOT include your battle.net password, as no-one at Blizzard will ever ask you for this -- anyone you does is likely to be trying to steal your character!

Review: Diablo II: Lord of Destruction
exploiting a loophole that allows non- barbarian characters to
improperly dual-wield weapons. Please note that this will no longer
be possible once the modifications in the 1.09 patch have been
implemented. As a result, one of the two weapons will be deleted from
the character's weapon slot if users are still improperly utilizing
dual-wielding. Players who do not wish to lose a weapon in this
manner are advised to discontinue use of this technique.
Additionally, more serious complications can arise when players use
this method in an attempt to obtain additional benefit out of a
Barbarian's normal dual-wield, and players are often corrupting their
character file in the attempt.
