You know, there is a mod that lets you play as these characters that you're talking about. Its still being worked on though, and the guy that was doing it lost all his data so he has to do it again lol, but he hasn't even worked on it for a while. Its very disheartening to have all your work destroyed. Its still pretty freaking cool though. The only thing is that Mephisto doesn't have his aura thing, he's just bone. And his arms kind of seperate from his body when attacking lol, but its cool.
Interesting. I knew one guy, Zhoulomchrist, was working on a mod entitled "Cryptforge". He was pretty far ahead, but his harddrive gave up on him and there was nothing he could do about it. Coupled with a rising interest in WoW, he stopped working on it. Though this was about 4 years ago come to think of it.
PlugY for Diablo II allows you to reset skills and stats, transfer items between characters in singleplayer, obtain all ladder runewords and do all Uberquests while offline. It is the only way to do all of the above. Please use it.

The Diablo lore, prior to the release of the Sin War trilogy stated that Inarius and his followers were hideously mutilated, Inarius had his eyelids torn off and placed within a prison of mirrors doomed to look upon his now defomred body for all enternity, while his followers became the demons known as Overlords. The Butcher (and the Smith and Haephestos the Armorer in D2) is one of these demons.
Long story short The Butcher is a mutilated Angel. Unless the Sin War trilogy changed it.
Not sure haven't finished them yet. Just started Birrthright.
As for my pic, Diablo, Lightning Inferno, Immolation (Fire nova), Chill touch are really good skills. And I think he should still be able to cast Apocalypse like he did in the first game, not sure how switching host bodies would casue him to lose that ability and gain new ones. Gaining new ones is easily explained by the fact in D2 he assumed his true form, but does that mean he loses skills he had before in his D1 form? maybe?

-Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth.
I would definately play as Mephisto. I love the ice orb, that royally messes you up, unless you can block it.:rolleyes:
If you would like to try out playing as Diablo, get the mod Eastern Sun 3.00. You can collect a full set, that allows you to morph into D, kinda like the trang set for the necro to turn into a vampire. Once you are in the form of Diablo, your hp are increased by 20%, you are given lightning inferno, and it lasts for 1000 seconds or something rediculous. I still wish it would have given the icy touch skill, and the fire nova skill. Another set also transforms you into Izual.
You know, i have lost all respect for Mephisto now. My merc alone dropped Mephisto's health past halfway (my merc is from Act 2 and does 256 dmg by the way). And i took care of the rest of Mephisto with just ice blast (203 dmg) and one blizzard (189 dmg). I'm only lvl 25, normally i die around 3-4 times. Was Mephisto always this bad or did i just get a good build finally?
