Reign of Terror FAQ
What is this mod exactly?

A: Passion project from a random “Diablo 2 lover” that tries to recreate some of the most memorable D2 experience into a modern theme.

Is this a 1:1 copy of D2:LoD?

A: D2 core features are used and implemented into the mod but there are some engine / tool restrictions for which I have to use various workarounds in order to at least mimic D2 experience. I also added my touch to some of the content where I believe it is improvement over the original. If you are looking for a 1:1 copy this is not it, however based on how you play the game it is as close to a full remake experience as there is short of Blizzard releasing one themselves.

How complete is this mod?

A - This mod currently has Act 1 - 5, All the D2 classes and skills, and most if not all the D2 Sets and Uniques (With a item rework coming). This also includes Ubers, Hidden Ubers, Maybe a Cow Level, and more!

A - There is no way to skip the playthroughs, my advice is get alot of movement speed and power through it.

Can players make suggestions?

A: Yes, there are suggestion channels in the discord server. Please note that unless it is an easy quality of life improvement or feature we are actively working on it may be some time before a new suggestion can be considered or implemented. The more thought and detail that goes into a suggestion can also help as it takes time to implement features so they need to be thought out.

A: Runewords can be crafted in Horadric Cube (found in Halls of the Dead Level 3). To use the Cube, you need to right click on it in your inventory which will spawn a small cube on the ground under your character.

Don’t worry about picking the cube up off the ground when you’re done, as it stays in your inventory.
