Just started playing Diablo 2 last week. I had never heard of the game until I saw a plug for Diablo 3. After getting it to work on my Win 7 machine, I have been having non-stop fun. I am currently in Act 2 and just about to finish it playing as a barbarian. Level 20 I think. I do have a couple of questions, so please be kind with the answers.
1. How do you configure your mouse to get the most out of it while in battle? I get the right click, left click, but what about the scroll bar or side bar? I dislike having to touch the keyboard, but I don't see any other way to play this game.
2. Best time to save? I noticed that if I save and exit, the monsters reset themselves. So does this mean the best time to save is at a way-point or after I have completed a quest, or both?
3. Should I be doing "magic finding" at my level? I can't find a decent sword and I only seem to get items for mages when I do kill a boss or mini boss. Nothing pisses me off more than getting a wand with 10,000 gold that I can't use.
4. Should I keep these unique or rare items? I only play single player, but am hoping to run through again using a few more players, like necro or paladin. Can I use the items that I find with my barbarian for my necro?
Yeah, I am totally addicted to this game and am having so much fun. I can't believe that I could have been playing this game 10 years ago. Wow, did I miss out or what? BTW, I only play a couple of hours a night a few days a week, so it may take me months to get through this game with a Barbarian. Thanks in advance for your answers and your patience.
