Grab Diablo 2 and Expansion for $5
With all the Diablo III hype, many gamers are dusting off their copies of Diablo II. If you’re missing your CD key or the entire disc, G2Buy has a few precious CD keys on sale for Diablo II and the expansion, Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, for a mere $5. Here are the particulars from the G2Buy.com site.
- Guarantees that cd-keys is 100% authentic and has NEVER BEEN USED.
- The cd-keys works on ALL CLOSED REALMS on Battle.net.
- You’ll be the only one with the cd-keys.
- You need the CD’s to install the game – we don’t provide these!
So what’s the catch (and there’s always a catch)? If you don’t have the physical CDs, you can download the programs, but you must request 26 characters from the Blizzard website first. There’s an extremely limited number of these keys left so move it or lose it. I’m glad I have the CD keys for all three copies of my game.
Editors Note: After looking into this a bit, I can’t find anything specifically stating that this service is legit, or not. However, with any deal that seems too good to be true, there’s always a chance that it is. Therefore, I urge you to consider carefully the ramifications of buying what may be a previously used, banned, or muted CD Key. Over at the Fat Wallet Forums, user Jethroz reminds us all of the following:
For those that are purchasing these, be careful. I have around 80 keysets from Clone Hunting, some of which are banned/muted and a few that are shared between users across realms. Multiple users can use the same key as long as they are being used on different realms. Also, if a key is banned on one realm, it will, in most cases, still work on a different realm.
I was able to register for the digital download with numerous ‘bad’ keys I have. Single realm mute, full mute, single realm ban, and full BNet ban all were accepted for the digital download.
Now that I recall, g2buy.com is one of the notorious in-game spammers on at least the West realm. They ran spam bots to randomly enter games/lobbies and spam their store message. The bots cycled through hundreds of keys during the process.
Not to say that this site isn’t legit, but if these keys have been associated with nefarious activity in the past, it might not be something you want your name associated with. So, as always, caveat emptor, my friends.
