What has been removed and added?

Posts: 3,391
So I'd like to form some kind of list of what all has been taken away from Diablo 2, if possible. Things I feel I'll miss.

Removed items/mechanics:
Scroll of Identify
Skill Points
Searching for your objective
Gambling(?)
Charms
Ammunition

Added items/mechanics:


Know I may be mistaken about some of the stuff, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Anything else I can add to the list?


Added:

The ability to identify items without a scroll
The ability to attack without having to worry about running out of an item you can buy for super cheap and didn't provide any actual fun gameplay element

Some other stuff,

From another thread, it seems like +skiills on items are gone for now as that fit under the old rune system AND +skills from one class being on an item so say for example, a barbarian could get +teleport skill ala enigma item and teleport around. Ill see what else I can think of if it comes up.


Think +Skills on items would fall under Skill Points. though Skills on items is good.

Weather effects were tied to the area you were in, right? Might be wrong.

Could you explain what you mean by that?

I did do some research on the topics, though never found anything and assumed they weren't around. (Mostly searching the wiki and reporting on if it found any results, though I can tell now the wiki's not fully accurate)

This one sucks as far as I'm concerned (in terms of realism):

environmental damage (barrels & shrines) - removed
