Diablo II Version History

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Patch 1.10
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Mysterious World-event

- Players of Hell difficulty Realm games are hereby warned that a new,
challenging world-event has been added to Diablo II version 1.10.
Players of Hardcore characters should be even more wary when
encountering Superunique monsters during an active world event. Be
prepared to execute a hasty Save and Exit, if your situation seems too
dangerous.


Fundamental architecture changes/improvements

- The skill and monster systems are now completely data-driven. Skill
balancing is simpler and quicker. Monster control/populating/creation
is simpler. Although done for our needs, mod-makers should like these
changes, too. A major result is that nearly any skill can be used by any
character class.
- A skill now may have synergy Bonuses (similar to masteries) applied by
putting points into other skills.
- The player stats and inventory system has been completely redone to
run more efficiently, improving server performance and stability.
- The collision detection system has been sped up significantly. Again,
improving server performance.


Specific changes/improvements

- Increased difficulty for high-level players to reduce future
exploitation of the game system.
- Made monsters tougher
- Beefed up monster difficulty in Act V, Nightmare, and Hell
difficulties. This was accomplished by improving monster stats (hp, ac,
etc.) and by boosting their AI/behavior in NM and Hell difficulties
(that is, by making decisions more often and by simply moving faster).
In Nightmare and Hell difficulties monster damages have generally been
increased -- dramatically in some cases.
- Reduced the effectiveness of Experience runs, power-leveling, and
leeching.
- Added randomized (especially ranged-attack) monsters to Nightmare and
Hell Act V - e.g., Burning Dead, Imps, etc.
- Increased the Experience attached to most Act V monsters in Normal,
Nightmare, & Hell difficulties.
- Reduced the HP of (Act V) Barbarian soldiers in Nightmare and Hell
difficulties.
- Increased the rate of occurrence of Unique monsters in Hell
difficulty.
- Reduced the party member Experience sharing to 0 beyond a maximum
distance of about 2 screens from the monster death. This prevents
low-level characters from joining a party and then staying completely
out of harm's way while still getting Experience.
- Increased the Experience penalty for Clvl 70+ as follows: Clvl 1 - 69:
100% Experience Clvl 70 - 99: 85% - 0.8% Experience (approximately
exponential decaying)
- Encouraged players to play in more of the Diablo II
areas/locations/levels.
- Reduced drops from the most-run SuperUnique monsters, ThreshSocket and
Pindleskin.
- Cut Experience and reduced drops in the Cow level.
- Randomized the monster populations more thoroughly throughout Act V in
Nightmare and Hell difficulties, including the addition of 'guest
monsters' from other Acts.
- Increased the number of Unique monsters in each area and difficulty.


Improved various Items

- Improved the attributes for newly-dropped Rare Armor, Helms, and most
Weapons.
- Added over 100 new Unique Items, of which 29 can be found only in
Ladder games.

Minor Bugs

their radii of effect.

upon opening the Skill Tree or Inventory.
- The extraneous text in the Change Realm dialog box has been removed.
- The health bar of a Flayer knocked from his Flayer Shaman now works.
- Fixed a general monster health bar overflow bug.
- A temporary loss of the Stamina Shrine effect no longer occurs.
- The Skill Tree levels are now displayed properly when a player equips
both a non-melee item that boosts all character class skills along with
a weapon that boosts an individual skill.
- Skills granted by items are now always displayed as such in the Skill
Tree.
- The damage displayed on the character screen is now correct when a
character with high strength has no weapon equipped.
- The damage displayed on the character screen is now correct for
Freezing Arrow and Holy Shock.
- The hover text of the Amazon skill Multiple Shot now correctly
displays that it does 3/4 weapon damage.
- When the Assassin has two Claws equipped and is using the Weapon Block
skill, the Chance to Block percentage properly appears in the hover text
of the Defense stat in the character screen.
- The Golden Bird quest status is shown correctly in the quest log, if
one exits the game before getting the reward.
- The Redemption skill description now correctly states that it affects
only the caster, not the party.
- The Redemption skill graphic effect can no longer appear erroneously
when a player returns from town through a Town Portal.
- The Thunderstorm skill graphic effect now displays properly.
- The damage listed on the character screen for Holy Shock no longer
appears blue.

the multiplayer character selection screen of DII Classic.

Enhancements and other changes

- Implemented a new system to detect and delete 'duped', 'hacked' and
other erroneous items from the inventories of Realm Characters as they
are loaded.
- Increased the damage of nearly all skills above skill level 20.
- Added synergy bonuses to many skills. The bonuses boost the
effectiveness of the higher-level skills based upon the number of points
allocated to the lower-level (synergizing) skills. Players are rewarded
for using skill points earlier rather than hoarding them all for later
'cookie-cutter' distribution to high-level skills.
- Rebalanced the rate of Unique/Set/Rare/Magic items drop.

of these complete Sets.

to 1 character level.
- One can no longer enter Town Portals cast by other players in areas
beyond the "blocking quests" without having completed those quests:
e.g., Canyon of the Magi/Seven Tombs/Duriel's Lair (The Summoner), The
Harem/Palace Basement/Arcane Sanctuary (The Tainted Sun), Durance of
Hate (The Blackened Temple), The Worldstone Keep (The Ancients), The
Secret Cow Level (Terror's End in DII classic or Eve of Destruction in
DII: LoD). NOTE: A player who kills the High Council (but doesn't use
Khalim's Will to smash the Compelling Orb), may take a Town Portal into
the Durance of Hate.

Arrows" or "Fires Explosive Arrows" have these properties at appropriate

items.

increasing the chance for Rares.
- Increased the chances that dropped items have the magic properties of
Enhanced damage, Life-stealing, Mana-stealing, and + to all Resistances.

holding items is saved between games.

- The Buriza's level (not its level requirement) was increased to 59.
- Items that grant skills bestow a lower skill level to those character

Charged items receive synergy and mastery bonuses, but don't receive
bonuses by assigning extra points to the skill.

- The Eth Rune's effect is now "-25% to Target AC". Thus, 4 Eth Runes

hirelings, and Act-end bosses. Its lack of effect upon player characters
and unique monsters remains unchanged.
- Changed the Horadric Cube recipe that had used 3 chipped gems to
require 3 standard gems as follows: 3 standard gems + 1 socketed weapon
= socketed, magic weapon.
- Changed the two Horadric Cube recipes for Rejuvenation Potions to
require a chipped gem and a standard gem.

down the Alt key to pick up items.
- Monsters (except for SuperUniques) in non-ladder Realm games are now
