Blizzard to create World of Warcraft Classic "vanilla" servers

Finally, no need to play on private servers. Blizzard is actually listening to wow players.
Wow classic still offer the best MMORG experience ever.

At BlizzCon 2017, Blizzard announced World of Warcraft Classic. This is the vanilla version of World of Warcraft. What this means is, fans will be able to play World of Warcraft as it originally released, prior to its many updates and gameplay changes. There have been several third-party vanilla servers in the past that Blizzard has shut down and World of Warcraft Classic appears to be the company's way of catering to its many fans who want an old school experience.

No release date or timeline has been given for World of Warcraft Classic other than Blizzard saying it's being worked on.

World of Warcraft Classic is Blizzard's response to fans who have long begged for a server based on the original version of World of Warcraft.

“We want to reproduce the game experience that we all enjoyed from the original, classic WOW,” said executive producer J. Allen Brack, following a trailer that revealed the server.

Fans have worked on making their own vanilla servers over the years, some of which Blizzard Entertainment has shut down over copyright and other issues. But that hasn’t stopped players from wanting to return to the classic World of Warcraft experience. That typically refers to gameplay from prior to the Burning Crusade expansion, which dramatically changed the game when it launched in 2007. 2010's Cataclysm expansion further removed content from what fans call the “vanilla” version of the game.

The official Classic version is currently in development, Brack said.

I got a 19/20 sorceress torch from Uber Tristram

I completed Uber Tristram event last week, and got a really nice 19/20 sorceress torch charm.
The event is easy for my paladin with shield bash.
The hardest part is actually to collect 3 keysets.
The event starts by killing 3 uber monsters, Lilith drops Diablo's Horn,Uber Duriel drops Baal's Eye,Uber Izual drops Mephisto's Brain.
To create a red portal to Uber Tristram, place Diablo's Horn, Baal's Eye, and Mephisto's Brain in the Horadric Cube, and transmute them while standing in Harrogath in a Hell difficulty game. A red portal will open, the fourth in that area if you've done them all in the same game.
It takes you to Uber Tristram, where the real fun begins.
Uber Tristram has the same layout as regular Tristram, though the entry portal appears towards the north of town, rather than in the far eastern corner. Scattered through the center of town are Uber Mephisto, Uber Baal, and Pandemonium Diablo (so named because Uber Diablo was already used in another bonus quest). They are massively harder than their usual act boss selves, boosted by new abilities and much higher hit points, defense, damage, and more. They are also able to summon minions at regular intervals, further complicating things for intrepid adventurers.

The rare runes I found in Diablo 2

The new ladder season of Diablo 2 started in May 2017.
 I created a new sorceress and a new Paladin.
I love rare runes, they are very useful in creating powerful runeword items.
Countess in Black Marsh always drops runes, she is a great place to hunt runes.
Here are some of my founds: Um, Mal, Vex, Ist, even Lo.
Um is good for resist gears.
Ist is for magic finds.
Vex is very popular for the heart of the oak mace.
Lo is used to create a great melee weapon Grief.

Crafting rare amulets in Diablo 2

Diablo 2 came out in 2000 (17 years ago), and I am still playing it.
Blizzard continues to release new patches for this game ! (Is this a record for an old game ?)
A reason I still play this game is for crafting. Crafting in Diablo 2 is really fun.
Crafted items can be created with The Horadric Cube.
Crafted Items have the potential to be better than Rare Items and possibly certain Set or Unique Items.
Crafted Items may have 3-4 Fixed Properties + a set of random properties.
I love crafting amulets, because with good luck, you can get +2 skill amulets,
with dual leech, faster casting and other good properties.
But you could also get an amulet with 95 level requirement.
Crafted Recipe is usually: a magic item + a crafting rune (middle rune) +Perfect Gem + Any Jewel
You must craft many times before you can get a good item.
see some examples below.
