I was playing alone today (Diablo II LOD) to gain some levels in multiplayer. I was at level 4 and I died because I wasn't paying attention to my health points. I lost all my money, weapons and Armour.. Find, I can deal with that. But I also lost my fireball skill (I am a sorcerer).. Is this normal? The fireball skill is even a default skill you start/begin with without the need even to choose it at level up.

When you die you lose your body. Just go back to the place of your death and get it back.
Oh and never keep money with you. Put them in storage so you won't lose it when dying.

Well.. When you die you lose your items, experience and some gold (depending on the level /me thinks)
When you get your body back you get only part of the experience. You might have lost a level and lost the skill due to that .:)

Try Demon's Souls on PS3.

It's much more forgiving. Heh.

If I remember correctly, the first level of the fireball skill is a skillpoint you get from an item in the first place.
Getting back the item will return the skill.

Edit: Oh and, you do not lose experience.

This man speaks the truth. I believe you get a point of Fireball from a starting item, so when you dropped the item when you were killed, you would have lost that point in Fireball (until such time as you equip the item again).

And you do lose experience when you die, but NOT on the default difficulty. That comes later, at Nightmare difficulty, I'm pretty sure.

The last post is correct, the first fireball skill you gain is gained through your staff which all soso's (sorceresses) begin with. So if you didn't run back to your corpse and got your items back, you lost the staff...

Oh my bad. I never noticed I didn't lose exp in normal :S But yeah. I forgot about the first kill coming from the staff, too. You should just live on, Domien :)

I have both Diablo II original and the expansion pack Lord of Destruction, short for LOD.
