Post by kingpin » Sun Dec 20, 2009 1:35 pm

Diablo II 1.13 Public Test Realm is LIVE!
Just a few hours after previous news update Blizzard decided to release 1.13 to their new public test realm for diablo 2.

Diablo 2 have once again been in focus on websites around the world. Alot discussions have been around if this is a good or bad patch. Why not make a judgement of your own? all you need to do is have a clean 1.12a patch installed and connect to classic battle.net realm. That will upgrade your patch to 1.13 ptr (it works in solo game once you patched it up aswell). You can easy downgrade to 1.12a by visit any regular realm.

Read the patchnote and Faq here.


D2scrabble mod 4.0 for 1.13 patch by Volf
D2scabble mod have been updated to 4.0 and is compatible with the 1.13 ptr patch.

Some of the changes in 4.0:
-A gembag has been added.
-Level restrictions on scrabble recipes has been removed.
-Cow King and hell diablo can drop Annihilus charm.
-Mod Updated to 1.13 ptr patch.
-The new 1.13 respec items can be dropped by the prime evils in hell difficulty + some other bosses can drop them in nm and hell.
-new unique items.

A new mod is born: PowerDiablo by saervos
Since the previous update both the initial release 1.0 and 1.1 patch have been released.

- This mod focus on speed up the booring time until end-game. You gain experience points alot faster (+300%).
- Equipment drops have been rebalanced to give access to higher quality equipment earlier in the game.
- Low-level uniques and sets are actually useful now as you find many of them earlier in the campaign.
- Gambling odds have also been increased to: 2% unique, 12% set, 25% rare.
- All monsters have been improved to offset the better gear and higher level players, and to add an extra level of challenge to the game. Monster levels are increased 2X across the board (1.5X in Nightmare and Hell) to keep pace with the player experience curve. Monster damage and defense are increased 1.5X as well.

You can read more about the mod in the annoucement thread here and also download the mod here.

might have been a good idea to mention the Fileplanet situation to prevent more spamesque threads, and point people to volfs temp downloads here

I could have done that. But, Onyx is our official spokesman with them. So I'm letting him handle it and if he have new's about it. He would let community know about it.

Not everyone reads the news.

Maybe a global anouncement can be used for the time being.

lets wait for Onyx for an update on the issue.

Global announcement is posted. I was waiting to get a definitive answer on the situation, hence the silence until now.

It is a shame no warning. I take it you can still get all the files hosted there to move to the new host. I do not know if 18v.biz has all the files needed.

Onyx, I would not worry too much on this until Christmas is over. We do have files from 18v.biz and if it is missing a file, someone else may have it and either send it by email or set up a download mirror.

Have a good Christmas Onyx
