Hi guys,
First of all Big thanks to everyone participating in our survey

This survey has helped us tackling the main issues on our server
and improving the gameplay a lot.

So get ready for our best server patch ever!

the update can be automatically downloaded via the Diablo 2 Game launcher.
Manual download: ... tch_D2.mpq

What is being changed?

everyone is able to get the Items they need very
fast, as a result the economy suffers and there is lack of trades.
I didn't want to just nerf the unique drop rates,
everyone likes to see shinee unique item drops
So here is what I came up with:

Base Item rarity:
Until now it was impossible to tackle single base item rarity such as for example
the shako, however after hours of modding I am finally able to change every single base item rarity in game.
All base items will be balanced, you will need a few runs more to get your first unique shako
or a good base for your Enigma / CoH and so on.

Grinding Rework:
Tired of just running the bosses / nihlathak over and over?
Guess what, Bigger / enchanced monsters in hell can drop everything
that nihlathak or baal drops as well, you are no longer limited to run bosses only.
Farm bigger mobs all over Hell :D

Bigger / Enchanced monsters drop:
- more unique items now.
- runes up to Zod.
- mephisto brain
- nv states

Max item level of unique items are set to the minimum level of monsters in hell.
ilvl 67, if the base item can be dropped by the monster, such as e.g berserker axe,
it is possible that you will end up with a death cleaver or larzuks champion :)

The drop of bigger/ enchanted mobs varies from act to act slightly.
in one act there might be slightly increased chance of dropping an nv state, but a lower chance
of e.g good items. in another act there might be an increased rate of runes, but less change of nv.
the 3 modifiers that are different in every act are runes, nv state, good items.
I can give that much away that in act 1 the base rarity of those 3 modifiers has been set.
Act 2-5 have those 3 modifiers modified :D

Where is the best act and place for you to farm?
Take a journey through the acts and find out ;)

Happy farming guys!
Note: This is a first attempt to make this work, things might need to be readjusted during the ladder or the next one.
If you notice anything out of balance, stuff being to common, notify me straight away.

Rune Rarity:
Has been already changed in a previous patch, although the rarity for vex+ is about 10 times rarer, no one complained.

- Rarity of mephisto brains fixed.
- 1 Stone of Jordan will now spawn 100% a Diablo Clone (changed from 15% to 100%) Rarity of the Stone of Jordan has been adjusted.
- Level experiance Rate from has been adjusted from level 1-60 x2 (from x4 to x2)
- Raven's Dawn unique bow has been adjusted and is no longer a rush item.
- Dark knight set and council head set have been adjusted (nerfed, yep they were way to powerful)

When will the patch go live?
Next ladder reset. Estimated Ladder reset: 20th July 8PM CET
