I figured that I might as well go ahead & buy it since I've been wanting to play it for a while now. Any tips?

Yeah, stop and play Diablo III/Reaper of Souls instead, easily the best in the series, and as someone who's only played Diablo III/Reaper of Souls I don't say that lightly.

D2 blows away d3. If d2 was remastered in 1080p more ppl would go back and play it then d3.

Well Paladin is OP, Mage is less OP and then there is everyone else.

Bought Diablo II because I've heard that the consensus is it blows D3 out of the water.

Any way to mod for a higher resolution?

Hmm... Oh well, if anything I could just play windowed, though I doubt I will.

Was thinking barbarian first, but what is best for a newcomer?

I'd recommend Titan Quest over D2 unless you plan on doing lots of multiplayer.

Sounds like you already bought D2 though.

If you are playing offline there is a hires mod although im not sure if it works with current d2 version.

Play Necromancer.

Put 20 points into skeletons, skeleton mastery, and corpse explosion.
Put at least 1 point into clay golem, amplify damage, and decrepify.
Get an offensive merc in act 2.

Ignore skeleton mages.

Ignore anyone who tells you to play Diablo 3.

Have FUN!
