Thanks! - Nebu
Thank you so much for continuing to visit this site year after year. Over two years of work went into this guide and it's amazing to see how much life and help it has provided over the years. We're now at 14 years since I began work on this guide along with Indoflaven who designed the layout and did the graphics for the pages. People here continue to be surprised to see just how many people still use this guide. We plan on continuing to support it. We have not had many updates to the site recently, but you can always submit errors via the link above. Thanks again for your support!

Diablo II Ladder Reset - May 27 - Nebu
It’s that time again! On the morning of May 27, we’ll be conducting maintenance in order to reset the Diablo II ladder. We anticipate the realms could be down for up to six hours, and during that time all existing ladder characters will be converted to non-ladder. All characters and items being converted to non-ladder will remain intact, but once converted these characters will no longer have access to ladder content such as ladder-only rune words. This ladder reset, like all those before it, creates a clean slate where all ladder characters begin at level 1 with no previous items to help them. To participate, simply wait until the Diablo II realms return to service on May 27, log in to Battle.net, and select the “Ladder Character” checkbox when creating a new character. You can track ladder character leveling progress by clicking on the Ladder button from the main Diablo II in-game Battle.net interface.
