Ok, I was just killed and went back trying to recover my body and my stuff and was killed again.

I've lost nearly everything it took me months to collect.

Is there a way to go back to a previously saved set of game data to recover my stuff?

I assume you're not on ladder, right? – Nick T Jan 12 '12 at 21:50
No, just playing the game by myself. I was just told by someone at Blizzard that there is no way to recover my stuff. I had no idea that this could even happen--my stuff has always been there after I was killed. Pretty sickening to spend all this time on the game just to lose everything. – James Winter Jan 12 '12 at 21:58
Did you start a new game? The corpse with the most "value" is usually sent back to town. – Resorath Jan 12 '12 at 22:04
I was killed and I went back to try and recover my body and was killed again. So I restarted and all my stuff I had with me when I was killed is now gone. – James Winter Jan 12 '12 at 22:08
I did not know that if I tried to recover my body and was killed again that all my stuff I had with me when I was killed the first time would be lost. – James Winter Jan 12 '12 at 22:10

Leave the game and re enter the game. Your corpse should be with you in town. If this does not happen, then you may have accidentally 'popped' your body (but this only happens if you are running an old version of diablo 2).

The good thing about not playing online is that you can use an save game editor to give yourself your gear back.

Can you tell me how to use game editor to do this? – James Winter Jan 12 '12 at 22:13
I'm on a Mac, btw. – James Winter Jan 12 '12 at 22:19
I found something called "Alkor" – James Winter Jan 12 '12 at 22:22
Will this work? – James Winter Jan 12 '12 at 22:22
@JamesWinter I do not play d2 on a mac so I'm unable to tell you if it works or not. Sorry – l I Jan 12 '12 at 22:44
