Fans of Blizzard’s most devilish franchise will be back in time to experience the 2D isometric sequence all over again with the release of Diablo 4 and Diablo 2, which is a re-emergence. While the original Diablo is certainly one of its own classical features, Diablo 2 is considered to be the superior of the first two entries and therefore more worthy of a remaster.
One thing new for the classic game is the fact that Diablo 2 is different from Diablo 3 which came out more than a decade later. It is harder, less forgiving, and unbelievably complex to do certain tasks with little to no guides. The unbelievable community-based modding scene that keeps classics alive is one thing that has remained consistent.
#10 You Gotta Be Kidding Me
You Gotta Be Kidding Me is a joke that completely overhauled Diablo 2. There is no shortage of references to popular culture, like the Matrix, Star Wars, Mortal Kombat, characters and stages.
There is no real mod – and it is probable that players will not stick with this for a meaningful period – but the hode-podge Memey menu alone is worth downloading. It’s worth it.
#9 Pandora’s Trials
One of the newest Diablo 2 styles, even in 2021, was Pandora’s Trials. It’s a mod that changes much over the basic game, including the addition of a passive bonus system, a quicker levelling approach and an alchemy system.
The mod’s name is derived from the Box feature of Pandora. Pandora’s Box is an item that enables the player to reach new spots and new enemies once they have been purchased. It won’t be a walk in the park, be warned.
#8 Genesis 2.0
This mod has only recently been converted to English but it has long been a popular Polish mod. Genesis 2.0 is a large mod with new maps, layouts, items, recettes and runewords. It’s fantastic for those who get to the end of the game who want something more.
Genesis 2.0 also enhances some of the Diablo 2 PvP elements and adds new events in the game that present the player with challenges to overcome (and often extremely difficult).
#7 The Puppeteer
The Puppeteer is unique because its focus is on narrative adjustments, not gameplay. The new storey can be played on an existing or new character and the mod has a number of improvements and new additions to Diablo 2 as well.
Many mods from Diablo 2 include an easier grading system to reduce grinding in the original game. Puppeteer is no exception but it offsets new bosses and new skills for old adversaries faster levelling.
#6 Dark Alliance
This mod stands out for its all-embracing characteristics in particular. Dark Alliance is updating its system of skills, introducing new enemies into the game (some from Diablo 1) and adding not one but two new full-fledged campaigns that will follow the original game.
There is also a subquest system and a “Book of storey” that recalls important events and current search history.
#5 Reaper Of Souls
No, this isn’t the expansion of Diablo 3, it’s a Diablo 2 model! Diablo 2: Souls Reaper is another total game review. The dedication of the modding team, which updates and patches this comprehensive addon today, sets this apart. What makes this unique?
The new bosses and storey chapters have a higher level of capability, new recettes, primal old armors and armour, new expansion systems. It is a lightweight instal, although it has several new features, compared to some other mods.
It’s a different meme mod, but a little substance this time. E=MC2 subtly changes the game so that the experience is still preserved as best it can be. While You’re Kidding Me is 100% focused on the player laughing.
The mod reworks maps throughout the game and revisits music, adds items and recipes to monsters and abilities. In addition, however, the mod changes Act 3 completely, adds easter eggs in the entire game and changes textures worldwide.
#3 Path Of Diablo
Path of Exile was a shattering hit upon release. It was praised that Diablo 3 had too much of a difference from the classics, for having similarities with Diablo 2. Diablo’s Path does something similar by modernising the original Diablo 2 experience without sacrificing gameplay.
The mod provides new skills to encourage new buildings and provides much-needed improvements to the quality of life. It also transforms Diablo 2 into an MMO by allowing global chat and multiplayer elements.
#2 Hell Unleashed
Hell Unleashed is one of a few team-based mods, perfect for a classic night of games with friends near and far. The mod doesn’t hold back dots and even the normal difficulty setting tests the strength of Diablo 2’s most experienced veterans.
The dedicated field of mod is operated on servers around the world, providing a smooth experience with one of the largest groups in the game.
#1 Eastern Sun
Eastern Sun is one of Diablo 2’s most popular mods ever. This includes new elements of history, new items and unique monsters, upgrade the system of know-how and changes the world layout to completely overhaul the vanilla experience.
Moreover, it is one of the few mods that provide graphic improvements and even improves the obscurity of the game (those dark corners are going to feel much darker). In addition, the mod hosts its own online playground.
