rounds out the speed running team.
Though the imminent release of Diablo II: Resurrected has drawn the attention of many more unaffiliated players and teams who will also be attempting to set new records. Distinguished speed runners such as
will all be pushing with their own teams to conquer Diablo and the Lord of Destruction.
Racing Through Hell
The first goal will be to clearing through all five acts of Diablo II on Normal, Nightmare, and Hell difficulties, a single player race which typically takes around 3.5 and 6 hours, depending on class, though teams can complete it in as little as 2-3 hours. As this is purely for bragging rights, there are no stipulations to this race outside of seeing who defeats the bosses first!
Diablo II speed running is generally
split by class and game mode
, with hardcore taking longer than softcore, and Paladin speed runs taking significantly longer than Sorceress.
The Pandemonium Event
After completing Act 5 on Hell difficulty, the team will be challenged with taking on the final endgame content in Diablo II - the Pandemonium Event. Added in patch 1.11, it represents the pinnacle challenge in Diablo II, through a hidden questline very similar to crafting Hellfire Necklaces in Diablo III. It tasks players with collecting three sets of three special keys in order to open portals to Uber Duriel, Uber Izual, and Lilith, who will in turn drop special quest items relating to each of the Prime Evils. Using nine keys in total to collect all three quest items will then allow players to open a portal to Uber Tristram for the final challenge. In addition to a variety of unique monsters, champions and their minions, players will once again face all three Prime Evils, now greatly empowered.
Uber Boss & Pandemonium Guide
Each boss is level 110, regenerate life at twice the normal rate, and have 3,360 defense, making them very hard to hit with conventional attacks. In addition to their normal abilities, they also have new effects to make them even more dangerous:
(not to be confused with the
Uber Diablo clone
) is the groups tank, summoning physical immune Pit Lords and casting Armageddon to rain hellfire down on players.
is a support caster which summons Ghoul Lords and Ghosts, while using all the same harassment spells as his previous incarnations.
is perhaps the most dangerous monster in the game, using Conviction Aura to reduce player resists by 125%, while summoning endless skeletal mages and archers. He is also immune to poison, lightning, and all forms of leech unless cursed with life tap - often considered a necessary strategy to defeat him.
While high level and well geared players can smash through the event in a matter of minutes, it isn't nearly as easy for newly leveled characters. Separating the bosses from each other, as well as their various adds, becomes very important for survival, but defeating all three Prime Evils will award the unique
charm and the
Standard of Heroes
Despite being a 20 year old game, there are still players dedicated to theorycrafting new builds and setting new records, though the challenge won't be nearly this easy for newly leveled characters!
