I was mentioning to my friend last night that the crap gear that drops in NM act 1 would be considered godly in D2 (non LOD).
My take so far based on my limited play:
It's sad that there's no class specific weapon bonuses like before, and wizards are running around with axes and swords
just to get the highest DPS possible.
Cool downs are just plain stupid
Waiting for a TP to pop is stupid. The fact that you can't pop on prior to a mob /boss is stupid
Waiting for something to ID is stupid.
I like the fact that you can change skills without redoing the character
I like the shared stash, makes shit much easier
Thank god we don't lose gold on deaths haha, since the entire game is based on gold atm.
