I'm playing through at a much slower pace than normal. I've only just reached Jehryn's palace, which is what I used to be able to easily reach in two play throughs. I'm actually finding the game easier not using the run function gratuiously. After playing Diablo 1, I guess I just got used to walking and I find the slower pace makes battles more strategic. I've only used in battle a couple times, including this fight against Blood Raven.
My luck with items has been pretty poor. I've only picked up Shadowfang for uniques and no set pieces. Normally I've found 2 arctic horns or 2 arctic furs by now. At least I've somehow managed to make a perfect topaz which will help with magic finding.

Another fun find was what is apparently the bayeux tapestry on a wall in the monastery.
