You should probably go backwards from 0.9. That way there's not one sudden jump into the past, and it's a more gradual transition.

Honestly, I don't see why playing online is any better than playing offline. Sure, having people spectate and give advice is nice, but a) I am a boring and terrible player and people never watch me :( and b) really, being able to see all of your items at once is nice.

If you are really set on killing them, you should create specialized characters to do so. Most characters only add to the problem. Again, Necromancers in stable or Undead are the best characters for ghost killing.
