I wasn't referring to the faults in DiabloII, but the features. I've
seen a lot of faults during network play (both Internet and LAN) and
with some patchlevels it was just unbareable. Things seem to have been
more and more corrected on that front though.
Speaking of the features, I ment the increased storage spaces. Jewels
(though very unnecessary, I admit), imbueing, etc. "rare" and "unique"
weapons and armory is definitly the things that keeps you going too.
Frankly, there's so much features that differs from the first game that
it would be a darn long list...

I'd like a kind of "bank" or "storage wharehouse" where one could drop
things like armour and weapons you either find or get from people, but
which you can't use at the moment. I don't know *how* many times I've
given up *good* eq, just because the stash is filled to the maximum. Oh,
and all the stuff in the cube. Atleast two times I've mis-clicked on the
"transmutate" button and *WHOOP*, there went the stuff into some trashy
axe or something. Frustrating.
Oh, and it's not *easy* to transfer eq between different characters.
