Well on the bright side I didn't die on the DC, not sure how I managed that. I did die later on in Act 2 when I popped my Diamond Armor on a group that was beating on me only to be surprised when even more creatures spawned leaving me without my Diamond Armor, no where to run, and eating dirt within 2 seconds.
It's been a while since I died at a game and it gave me the grin I had last night. That's probably what I like most about Diablo right now. It's not so much as the game pulling **** moves as it's more along the lines of you just messing up.
Currently I am a 25 wizard closing in on the end of Act 2.
On a side note, I hate those dang sand flies.
