Zy-El is a modification (Mod) for the Diablo II: Lord of Destruction v. 1.09, created by Kato. It has been developed over a number of years and has a dedicated following of players. The style of Mod is best described as "a builder Mod" as not only do you build your character(s) as you play, most of the items you use will be "crafted" to suit your own individual needs. Zy-El gives more options and opportunities for crafting your own items than almost all, if not every other Diablo II Mod.

It all started way back in September 2002 with the release of version 1.00. The current version is 4.4C.
