[Storm Rust] LoD 1.09b Release

Post by Fawahar » Tue Mar 13, 2018 11:26 am

Hello Keep'rs!

Storm Rust is the name of the Diablo II LoD Mod I've scrambled for myself and other LoD Fans (as you) with the help of the Phrozen Keep Community.

The main goal of the Mod Storm Rust is to retain the original LoD Gameplay, yet to push you towards mastering the class you choose to play, focusing on tactics, momentum, concentration, immersion and leaving you but a little space to breathe, so you don't fall into click-click-got-bored situations. To reach that goal I had to completely change several main aspect of the game such as:

-Increased Difficulty
-Item Lore/Affix Lore (completely)
-Runes/Runewords/Crafting (completely)

There are other numerous minor changes, such as:
-Shops (partially)
-Gamble (partially)
-Hirelings (partially)

...and more

I hope I would be able to drive you out of your skin with this mod and let you experience genuine Diablo inspiration, while playing.

-get yourself running Diablo II LoD
-run patch from here
-replace the native Patch_d2.mpq in the Game Directory with this one
-get few zombies down and see if you like it

Things you might like to know:

Crafting is simple! Put a gem and ring(or)amulet in your cube and watch it sparkling.

Just trying it out now. Not sure if the lack of descriptions on the items makes it more interesting or frustrating :cool:
