Carbot’s Diablo II Lord of Destruction Trailer

Carbot Animations has been a bit down on World of Warcraft lately, even following the trend into Final Fantasy XIV, but the Diablo II series carries on.

Having covered the defeat of Diablo and the cow level, it was time to move on to the Lord of Destruction expansion and the Act V content.  Bring on LOD!

Make way for LOD

All of which is summed up in this trailer set to a tune you may recognize.

My memories of the Lord of Destruction expansion mostly revolve around two new classes and an upgrade in video resolution from 640×480 to 800×600, the latter being the more important of the two.

But the pile of other things added to the game… charms, gems, runes, the ability to ad sockets, and all the gear… had a huge impact on the game as well.  And it all gets summed up pretty well in this video.  LOD was kind of a big deal.
