Resurrected is expected to launch Sept. 23, 2021, and many players — new and old — are no doubt gearing up to take on the demons of Sanctuary. Diablo 2 is more than 20 years old at this point, and there are plenty of great beginner's tips and tricks that will get you acquainted with or reaccustomed to the remastered legendary game. Here they are in no particular order.
Resurrected isn't like Diablo 3 in the sense that you can re-spec and re-skill characters as many times as you want. In fact, before Akara awarded a stat and skill reset reward for the Den of Evil questline and before Tokens of Absolution were introduced, there was no way to remake a character other than to start again at level one.
The Dark Wanderer visits Marius in the opening cutscene of Diablo 2. The doors to the prison swing open on their own, as if magic has forced the hinges to move. It’s a memorable moment, one that establishes this presence of magic and power for the Dark Wanderer.d2 resurrected gold
But this wasn’t always the case. Pre-release marketing materials for Diablo 2 featured a warden character opening the door for the Dark Wanderer. It was the original intent that the warden exist to open the door, but that character never made it into the game. It changed the context of the scene. In the shipped version, the Dark Wanderer doesn’t seem invited; they open their own path.
In Diablo 2 Resurrected, the recently announced remaster of Diablo 2, Blizzard Entertainment could’ve revisited that cinematic and brought the warden back in. But no matter the original intention or what makes more sense in the scene, that goes against Blizzard’s philosophy for Resurrected.
