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.

*edit*
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.

I’m pretty sure they’re just (illegally) running a key generator.

It’s legit, idiot. Nothing illegal about it. Grabbed mine several days ago, from this site.

You easily just get your cd-key’s from this site, and put them on your personal Blizzard account, takes a few seconds, then Blizzard allows you to download the software as many times as you like :)

Very awesome.

CSGRR: We’re doing some research on this. I trust the Frugal Gamer as a source but something does seem fishy. As to why they work it might just be working until they get banned.

If it’s legit, then why does Blizzard also sell the games (for electronic download, no box or anything) for 20 dollars apiece on their websites?

That site seems rather weird to me.

That site appears to be a home for RMT for Diablo and other games. Check my editor’s note above for more info.

I bought a key there last week and it’s working great. Saved my ass. I own Diablo 1 and 2 as well as the Lord of Destruction expansion. I still have all my discs, but I couldn’t find my CD case for D2 in order to install it. I bought the key from G2buy.com and then installed D2 using that key. Then I installed my expansion disc using my existing key that came with that disc. I’ve had no problems.

I just purchased a Starcraft key and here’s how it went.

I added it to shopping cart and the only real info i needed to give them was an e-mail addr. so address and stuff doesn’t really have to be legit because it gets shipped via E-Mail. Then you get directed to PayPal and confirm payment. About ten minutes later i received an E-Mail containing the starcraft CDKEY. Yes, the key was in plain text within the e-mail. it wasn’t some code to put onto a site to activate it, or anything like that.

The code has worked perfectly all night on the battle.net with no problems.

However, it very well could just be a keygen code. i have no way of knowing. but the key does work. well worth the $4 i spent. After all, i’ve spent more on less many times in the past.
