Ladder Reset & Patch Update 19th July!
Hi guys,
First of all Big thanks to everyone participating in our survey

This survey has helped us tackling the main issues on our server
and improving the gameplay a lot.

So get ready for our best server patch ever!

What is being changed?

everyone is able to get the Items they need very
fast, as a result the economy suffers and there is lack of trades.
I didn't want to just nerf the unique drop rates,
everyone likes to see shinee unique item drops
So here is what I came up with:

Base Item rarity:
Until now it was impossible to tackle single base item rarity such as for example
the shako, however after hours of modding I am finally able to change every single base item rarity in game.
All base items will be balanced, you will need a few runs more to get your first unique shako
or a good base for your Enigma / CoH and so on.

Grinding Rework:
Tired of just running the bosses / nihlathak over and over?
Guess what, Bigger / enchanced monsters in hell can drop everything
that nihlathak or baal drops as well, you are no longer limited to run bosses only.
Farm bigger mobs all over Hell :D

Bigger / Enchanced monsters drop:
- more unique items now.
- runes up to Zod.
- mephisto brain
- nv states

Max item level of unique items are set to the minimum level of monsters in hell.
ilvl 67, if the base item can be dropped by the monster, such as e.g berserker axe,
it is possible that you will end up with a death cleaver or larzuks champion :)

The drop of bigger/ enchanted mobs varies from act to act slightly.
in one act there might be slightly increased chance of dropping an nv state, but a lower chance
of e.g good items. in another act there might be an increased rate of runes, but less change of nv.
the 3 modifiers that are different in every act are runes, nv state, good items.
I can give that much away that in act 1 the base rarity of those 3 modifiers has been set.
Act 2-5 have those 3 modifiers modified :D

Where is the best act and place for you to farm?
Take a journey through the acts and find out ;)

Happy farming guys!
Note: This is a first attempt to make this work, things might need to be readjusted during the ladder or the next one.
If you notice anything out of balance, stuff being to common, notify me straight away.

Rune Rarity:
Has been already changed in a previous patch, although the rarity for vex+ is about 10 times rarer, no one complained.

- Rarity of mephisto brains fixed.
- 1 Stone of Jordan will now spawn 100% a Diablo Clone (changed from 15% to 100%) Rarity of the Stone of Jordan has been adjusted.
- Level experiance Rate from has been adjusted from level 1-60 x2 (from x4 to x2)
- Raven's Dawn unique bow has been adjusted and is no longer a rush item.
- Dark knight set and council head set have been adjusted (nerfed, yep they were way to powerful)

When will the patch go live?
Next ladder reset. Estimated Ladder reset: 19th / 20th July

Patch update will be required, the update can be automatically downloaded via the Diablo 2 Game launcher.
A manual download link will also be attached to this topic.

Server Patch Hotfix
Act 5 Red portals Hotfix
- [Bug Fix] Nightmare Lord of the Underworld has now got hell Baal drop, normal Lord of the Underworld has nightmare Baal drop
(previously they had all Hell Lord of the Underworld item drops)
- [Bug Fix] Nightmare Uber Izuals no longer drop item level 90 items
- Corpse explosion no longer works in Normal and Nightmare (was already disabled for hell)
- Normal and nightmare Lord of the Underworld has now the correct appearance.

NPC shops:
- [Bug Fix] No longer sells Ethereal indestructible items after a certain player level

Rune drops:
- Balanced drops Vex - Zod

What's the rarity of Vex - Zod now?
The thing is, the original scale was wrong since forever.
So Right now thinking about the old false scale the drop of vex-zod is about x0.5
The thing is, that right now looking at the correct rune scale it would actually correspond to x10
so 10 times more common then in the vanilla patch.
We will see how that goes and adjust if needed.

Future plans

Next Ladder Plans:
Soj drops will be balanced and 1x Soj will guarantee 100% to spawn Diablo Clone in your game
in order to get the Annihilus drop.

Reason: to many users complain about not winning the 15% chance lottery.

Ladder Reset + New Patch! 1st February 8PM CET
Hi guys has been a while :)
Ladder reset will take place on the 1st February 8PM time CET

Patch update required!
It is advisable that you let the Dream of Harrogath Launcher handle the installation for you.
Make sure you have the latest Launcher, you can get it from here:

patch can also be manually downloaded and installed:
http://dreamgaming.co.uk/files/PatchFil ... tch_D2.mpq

What's new you ask?

New Boss!
Lord of the Underworld
The appearance of him will remain a mystery for now :)

Act 5 Abaddon, Pit of Acheron & Infernal Pit
His presence has caused disturbance in the Area and is now surrounded by a mysterious force which
has disabled anyone to teleport.
You will have to clear everything to get to him! ;)

What can he drop?
He will always drop 6 items.

Common drop:
Random ethereal indestructible base armors shields, helms and weapons to make your runewords in.
Ethereal Bug possible too!
Here some of the best stuff we have managed to drop!

Note: He very rarely drops magic and rare items which will also be ethereal and indestructible.
In case he drops something unique it will not be indestructible.

One of those 2
Note: Changes has been made to the packs to guarantee more satisfaction. More info down below.

Very rare:
Destruction chest + Keys

NV State charms:

So you can look like this:

Very very very Rare (very unlikely you will get one):
Powerful unknown Set Items

What else has been changed?

:sur :ber Rune drops balanced :jah :cham :zod
in order to improve trade market.
Let's make runes something special again shall we?
We have had complaints that getting HR's is not as hard as getting
good items in game, therefore we have changed the Rune drops to
x1 for the runes sur - zod
El - Lo will stay x3.5 in order to attempt to repair the
the trade market. We will see how that goes.
Back in the days when we have made twice as many cows spawn we have never considered to tweak the rune

Burning Weapon and Diadem pack re-rollable items
In order to guarantee more satisfaction we have made the the items contained within the Packs
re-rollable, there is a 25% change that the item will lose the property on each re-roll.
Rerolling takes place inside the Horadrim Cube on its own.
This stat will be present on all items within those packs.
The items will also always be ethereal, indestructible and have 2 sockets.
To garantee a greater chance of ending up with a pro rare item.




Dream of Harrogath Launcher Bug fixed where the News window would not update sometimes at start.
The new launcher can be downloaded here:

The launcher is also contained within our Dream of harrogath installer:
