Diablo II News and Status Updates
9:34 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

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 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 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 password, as no-one at Blizzard will ever ask you for this -- anyone you does is likely to be trying to steal your character!

There has also been an update regarding a 'Dual-wielding' exploit being used by a number of D2: LoD players:

A number of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction players have been
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.

Finally there is news of the extreme success of Lord of Destruction which has become the fastest selling expansion pack ever, with worldwide sales already passing the magic one million units mark. Be sure and read our review of the expansion and add your own thoughts to the user reviews.
