Remembering Diablo II: Lord of Destruction

Mephisto and Diablo have been defeated by the destruction of their soulstones in the Hellforge. The epilogue to Diablo II reveals the fate of their third brother Baal, the Lord of Destruction. After tricking Marius--the narrator of the Diablo II saga--into surrendering the last soulstone after pretending to be the Archangel Tyrael, Baal proceeded to the Barbarian Highlands, aiming to corrupt the all-powerful Worldstone located at the Summit of Mount Arreat. Thus begins Diablo II: Lord of Destruction.

In addition to extension of the plot and a new fifth act that takes place in the Barbarian Highlands, the expansion pack to Diablo II contains many new enhancements to the original game. Two new character classes--the druid and the assassin--are introduced. Like the first five original character classes, both are playable in the first four acts of the game. New items, a bigger stash and items unique to each character class are also added in the expansion.

Like the first two games before it, LOD as players refer to it, received mainly positive feedback from the gaming community. Save for Neverwinter Nights and Sims, I believe I have spent more hours on this than any other game I have ever played in my entire life.
