I found my old D3 Vanilla screenshots folder...I had forgotten about some of these old memories.

Looking at this makes me cringe. I can't even fathom having to reveal all these rares after each run. I believe rares were a lot more rare back then. But I think this was one of the Watchtower runs, so this many rares wasn't even THAT rare. There was no Book of Cain, either.

You could "hack" items that you pasted into chat. So at one point people were "selling" these crazy items. I don't know what ever became of that, since obviously you would not get the item that was shown in chat. I assume people just got ripped off. The item modification, I believe, was done by taking an item and copying it to your clipboard, pasting it in a word processor, and then editing it before pasting it back into D3. Not sure about that though. It's been so long I can't remember.

I remember I was so happy when I got my DPS up to 100k lol. Had to pop all my cooldowns though. It was no big deal because I would just do COTA runs, exit, and reload the game.

There was a time when beating Diablo on Inferno mode was really difficult. It took us a couple hours to get to him, from the start of Act 4, and then a couple hours to beat him.

We tried to do it the night before, but one of the elites glitched and became undefeatable. (It was an illusionist mob with shields + enrage timer.)

 My first paragon lol

My second first paragon. It took me a minute to remember that the paragon system used to tie paragon levels to the character, and not the account.

I think this was considered a pretty good rare for my Wizard.

This was one of the best items I ever found, I think. Perfect rolls on those gold/magic find. I never used it, since I played CM Wiz. But it did fetch a pretty penny on the auction house.

lol at the set bonuses.

These are the affixes nightmares are made of.

Anyone have any old screenshots from early D3?
