Even if you’ve dominated the legendary Diablo 2, you will still have to adjust to some things if you plan on picking up the remastered edition – Diablo 2: Resurrected. And, seeing how there are no guides or tutorials in the game itself, we’ve decided to make one for you. So, here are some tips to get you started!
1. Choose Your Class Carefully
Not every class in D2R is suited to every playstyle. If you like to run around and destroy everything in your sight – Druid is a much better option for you than a Paladin or an Assassin. So, you might want to take a moment a choose a class that suits your playstyle, rather than just choose what seems to be more appealing.
2. Consult With A Skill Calculator
If you’re new to the game, figuring out which skills will suit you the most in the endgame will be painful. Thankfully, there’s a skill calculator that you can rely on. This feature will not only guide you in the right direction, but it will also help you understand each skill and how they all change over time.
3. Plan Ahead
You can buy Diablo 2 Resurrected Items as you move along with the game, but not all of them will serve you the same in the endgame. So, you should take your sweet time to work out which of these items and builds will serve you better once you approach the end. If you don’t – you’ll struggle.
4. Don’t Miss Out On Mercenaries
Even though it might seem like a good idea at first, you really shouldn’t miss out on a free mercenary early on in the game. Even though it’ll cost you a few gold coins, you will be able to develop a mercenary into an excellent squire that’ll carry some significant items for you.
5. Diversify Your Damage Sources
Early on, you’ll plow through enemies, but as the game progresses, more and more enemies will be resistant or immune to your attacks. Therefore, it is important that you diversify your damage sources. Don’t hope for the enemies to be vulnerable to your best attack because not all of them will be. Every once in a while – you’ll have to hit them with something different.
6. Stash Your Gear
It might be tempting to spend it all in one place early on or even to get rid of the extra gear while you’re in Act 1, but you really shouldn’t do that. All of your gear can be safely stashed in your camp, and we guarantee you – it’ll come in handy later on.
7. Hold Off On Crafting
Hold your horses while early in the game, and wait for the 99th level to start crafting high-level gear. As you’ll notice once you reach the endgame, high-level Runewords are the most effective when you’re at your best, so hold off on crafting early on. Great gear won’t really do much for you unless your character level is high enough.
Hopefully, our mini-guide makes up for the lack of in-game tutorials and guides.
And, for our final, bonus tip, we’ll leave you with this – just have fun and enjoy the game!
