New items

ARPGs are all about finding the best item combination for your build. To make this process more interesting, Median XL offers thousands of brand new items for you to acquire through farming, boss killing and crafting. There is so much diversity that you can easily build unique characters focusing on item-only skills or trigger skills which can be extremely powerful.

Endgame quests

Once you have completed the main story the Endgame begins. Unlike other ARPGs this does not involve killing slightly stronger versions of the same monsters you've already beaten over and over again, but is a completely new and challenging experience. Our endgame content features over 40 new quests which involve testing your character and reflexes against deadly bosses, efficiently farming new areas and uncovering many secrets. Your character reached Hell difficulty? You're just getting started...

New areas to discover

Doing the same mazes over and over again was getting stale. Median XL features dozens of new locations which host multiple endgame quests where the map layout actually comes into play. Always loyal to the Diablo lore, you can find new areas such as Heaven and the realms of Hell, the new town of Caldeum and fallen cities such as Duncraig, Viz-jun and Toraja. One quest has you travelling back in time and playing as Diablo while trying to defeat the Bear Tribe in order to break into the Worldstone Chamber.

Crafting System

Our crafting system offers a myriad of possibilities to tailor every piece of your equipment to your needs. Customise any runeword with jewels and if you haven't found any you like - craft your own! Apply a limited amount of bonus stats to any equipment slot via Mystic Orbs purchaseable from vendors, with unique drop only versions providing great power. If you're feeling lucky you can sacrifice a reward from an endgame quest for a chance of adding unique bonuses to your gear. Rare items which are competitive to uniques and runewords, and which can be shrine crafted with custom stats according to your needs to create something truly spectacular.

Quality of Life

Median XL modernizes the Diablo II engine by adding many features found in modern games. Tired of manually picking up all those gold piles? The automatic gold-pickup feature will do it for you as you walk near them. Died far away from town and forgot to cast a Town Portal? Your body will now spawn next to your character in town, so that you don't have to re-join the game. Many other features are coming: a higher resolution, loot filtering, one click item movement between cube/stash and inventory and more!
