I haven't played Diablo 2 in a while, and I have never played it online either; I am not sure if a 56k could handle it(?) have you finished the single player campaign yet?

I set up an account on battle net. Username: ARndog Let me know if you want to try playing online--I am not sure how fast it will be with a 56k but IIRC Starcraft worked pretty decent. IM incoming.

If you want to play online, go ahead and get the expansion, and download the 1.10 patch, which, if it isn't released yet, will be very soon. Just warning you, Diablo II's part of Battle.net is packed with idiots who either spend 14 hours a day mindlessly powerlevelling their characters or who spend their spare time finding ways to cheat and duplicate the most powerful items. The rampant cheating combined with the fact that I only have 56k AOL means that I haven't gotten much enjoyment from online play. Without a relatively high-speed connection, you will attack an enemy, and they won't get "hit" until 1-5 seconds later. Extremely irritating. I found it fun to play through once on single player (Sorceress, mostly Thunderstorm and Firewall, difficult in the beginning but a juggernaut once you get to level 35+ with some decent equipment,) but I'd advise thinking twice before sinking the time and possible extra money (Expansion) on this game. EDITED TO ADD: Playing Amazon? Stock up on the critical-causing passive, as well as the defensive passives. Offensively, look to multi-shot for crowd control and the excellent Guided Arrow for single, powerful creatures. Prepare to do a lot of hit-and-run fighting, especially in Nightmare and Hell. Tons of info on the game (as well as nearly every game ever made for just about any system) here: gamefaqs.com Strangely, they seem to be down right now. First time I've seen that happen in about 2 years. Feel free to send me an IM if you're having trouble.

You can make a private game on Battle net right? If you guys are going to play sometime tonight could you post the name and password for the game? I think it could be fun to play diablo online, but I still am not sure about the speed. btw, CerebralAssassin, did you get my IM?
