New to forum/medianXL need advice :)

Post by krathoz on Fri Dec 05, 2014 5:01 pm

hello everyone! i'm an old player of diablo 2/LoD and a current (sic) player of diablo 3.

I was talking to a friend and he told me about this mod and it sounds amazing, after that he told me that you need to do some research to understand the mechanics of the game and properly have fun.

Can someone point me where to start? from what version of diablo 2 LoD i need (if it supports pluggy, i'm gonna play singleplayer only) to mechanics, builds and all that good stuff.

I know this is a forum, i know there are guides everywhere but i think as an outsider you guys will guide me where to start better than if i look arround and get lost.

Also, i don't want to get things wrong, i really wanna play this game (saw a few vids on youtube, it's insane lol) so well, that Very Happy if you can throw me a bone i will be thankful.

Thanks in advance!

ps: also what version should i install? if you can also throw the links would be nice Smile

install cLoD and DON'T upgrade to the latest patch, or you'll have to downgrade.

for a starter, I'd recommend to download and install d2se, it makes everything much easier: http://d2se.org/d2se/D2SE_V2.2.0.exe

then you download the latest version of median xl, and place the Median XL - Ultimative folder into your "Mods" folder: http://www.moddb.com/mods/median-xl-ultimative/downloads/median-xl-ultimative-xv

and you're good to go, you can switch between MXL and cLod fast and easy Very Happy

you can even configure glide videomode to get the best performance possible, I can help with that if needed.

I can recommend this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gb4AFR-PBlA

The info given is neither complete nor fully up to date, but it should allow for a brief overview of the item aspect in the early game.

use the documentation that suchbalance posted, it will help you tons, it has a lot of info about various stuff (cube recipes, uberquests, items, challenges, etc.) make sure to read the challenges section in documentation, particularly the level challenges and ennead challenge, because they have a character level limit to do them, so you might miss some, and they give really good bonuses.

this is the only officially allowed maphack, it just reveals the whole act (run it as an admin):

this will maybe help you:

unfinished project of mine, stats (and some concepts) explanations:

I'd use 1.13c patch so you can respec with the belladonna elixir. imo it's best to play on realm, you'd learn/progress faster and probably have more fun. here are the instructions/rules for it:

Thanks Clariska, of course the main thing is have fun but i don't know, i find myself a little overwhelmed with long post, is really that hard to start from scratch this mod?

Kinda kills my intentions to play the game :/
