I recently re installed D1 with the goal of beating the game by only playing it one time through with no cheats (dupes obv included). Unfortunately I made some mistakes and got stuck on level 10 and had to create a new game. I was lucky enough to get every quest between the two games aside from Arkaine's Valor which made it pretty smooth sailing.
I played a warrior and my build was something like
Dexterity - Enough to reach 100% hit and a little extra
Strength - Enough for the highest plate / shields
Vitality - Primary stat dump
Magic - Enough to get a handful of casts off on ranged enemies. (Trained every book possible using a set of +Magic gear)
I installed hellfire but was a dissapoint when I realized I couldn't import my D1 character so I uninstalled it right away. If I get really bored I may try again and play a monk all the way through.
I'd love to play D2 through again but for some reason my graphics card hates it and crashes anytime I attempt to play.
I was wondering if any of you had also recently played through D1 and what your thoughts and strats were?
