5. Nude Assassin

And so we finally arrive at the obligatory nude mod that seems to work its way into just about every Top 10 Mod list. Note that this is a reflection of the mod’s popularity, not our personal preference. However, the amount of work that went into making this must be staggering — because we’re dealing with sprites, the number of custom animations and different armor variations that needed to be made is incredible. The result looks fairly polished.

4. Zy-El: Trial by Fire

Hungry? This mod adds food, which can be transmuted into potions. Magic arrows and bolts can be purchased, poisoned quills, 4-socket “star weapons” for Assassins, bracers for bare-fisted fighting, and fragments of the Zy-El scroll can be found and combined in the Cube to form a completed Scroll that enables the crafting of the Zy-El Artifacts – godly unique items.

3. Eastern Sun

This mod has an Asian influence — as should be evident from its name — and adds over 50 runewords based on Japanese Hiragana and Chinese Kanji. Over 640 new Unique Items are added, 69 item sets, including upgradeable mercenary sets, monsters have been buffed, drops have been improved, and each class receives 5 additional skills.

2. Hades Underworld Mod

This mod includes new graphics, new town maps, new sound effects, and different music. Characters receive multiple skill points per level, Act bosses drop more loot, over 100 new runewords are included, as well as new cube recipes, skill changes, and new animations.

1. Median XL

This mod completely replaces all class skills, improves items and monsters, adds 30 new uberquests, new and improved gems and runes, uniques, sets, runewords, and cube recipes.

“And so we finally arrive at the obligatory nude mod that seems to work its way into just about every Top 10 Mod list. Note that this is a reflection of the mod’s popularity, not our personal preference.”

So were all mods judged based on popularity, or by actual quality (might be the case with Median and KoT, BTH doesn’t deserve to be #10 at all)

For me the best MOD is Ancients: The Fury Within v1.02.

How about a mod to fix my mouse after left clicking 30,000 times rapidly in a D2 session? Hahah, I think I went through 4 or 5 mice during my diablo days.

Eastern Sun should be #1. Median XL changes so much that it looses the Diablo feel, like a completely new game, and we want Diablo, not some hackers own version. The nude mod is just sad, are you 12?

Hi to all those diablo II old-gamers out there! I am a professional game ranker and if you are tired from those Median Xl,Elements,…try the Dark Moon mod or Komodo mod!

i use median xl and its pretty badass. necromancer gets a ton of sweet totems, summons, and a new battle class so you can actually deal real damage as a necromancer if you so choose
