ive decided to make a thread of how i beat the Harder bosses and enemies that i thought in the game lol since i see some ppl having hard times on some like the butcher.
Butcher- Rouge* Usually around lvl 3 or 4. Buy a bow of knockback and fire away, he'll never reach you (also can work in higher difficulties).
Warrior* Buy a falchon and duke it out with around 16 full healing pots lol, or follow the sorc way with a staff that adds to magic like a staff of wizardry.
Sorceror* Buy a scroll of firewall or the book of firewall. Open the butcher's door and cast it on his side of the door and then close it. He should hug the wall on the other side and die from the firewall.
Night & Hell Butcher- Warrior* Use mana shield and try to use a sword of haste, preferably a bastard sword. Make sure to have a high amount of armor like full plate mail.
Sorceror* Use above method to weaken him. then open the door with telekinesis and blast fireballs at him, or use the arch angels staff of apocalypse on him till he dies.
King leoric- After entering his lair and doing the minor puzzles i suggest killing all the minor skeletons before fighting him head on.
Warrior* Just use a bashing weapon like a mace or a warhammer. He should drop like hes nothing without attacking so often (also works on higher difficulties)
Rouge* again Bow that knocks back or just run back and he'll run around like an idiot so you can shoot at him.
Sorceror* Holy bolt helps a lot or lightning. If he gets close run back and he wont really run after you like the butcher. He usually gets lost in the pathing XD.
(you kill him pretty much same ways in higher diff but the warrior can use weapons of haste)
Acid Spewing Unique- He doesnt always spawn but i have a harder time on him than i do diablo XD.
Warrior* dont stay in direct path of the whole group they hurt too much. Axes help a lot or fast attacking swords. Also any magic can help so long as its supportive like healing or mana shield.
Rouge* Hide behind barrels or run in and out of cover between walls quickly. Remember to shoot at least once while doing this lol.
Sorceror* Hes actually the easiest. Let them see you and run quickly behind a wall to block their line of sight. Instantly as when you cant see them cover the room in firewalls except you. It also helps to shoot the fire elemental spell from where they will come. Fireballs can substitute as well or even guardians =3.
Note* Enemies in Cave really are just about dodging their attacks and having high resistance. I myself never got too stuck on them so maybe some of the above strats can beat them. I have no special way to deal with them lol.
Lazarus- By this point of the game he really isnt too hard but his room does have some decently powerful enemies so be careful of mass spells.
Warrior* A warcraft 2 tactic of the rope a dope can help a ton lol. Run into the room slightly and run out. they will follow in a line allowing you to take them out or at least the more agressive enemies first, but run if you see some of the casters run out too lol. Repeat until you win =3. For lazarus himself just chase him and dodge his fireballs they can hurt a bunch.
Rouge* Same as Warrior but you have range lol so it should be even easier. Bows with lightning enchantments help a lot in this point of the game.
Sorceror* Run in and just spam apocalypse or do same as warrior with fireballs. You can also cast guardians at the doorway and theyll aquire targets on their own lol.
Diablo- His whole room is full of chaos. Most of them cast fireball so practice at dodging those. Teleport can help at dodging and skipping some of the obstacles.
Warrior* once you get by all those puzzles, lure diablo out by himself and run like all hell. when you lure him far from his minions attack like there is no tommarrow using fast attacking swords and such. You will need a ton of full HP pots so make sure to fill your inventory at least half way with em.
Rouge* Lure him away like warrior but you dont need to run quite as far. Pelt him with lightning enchanted bows, it usually screws up his attacks so he cant pelt you with apocalypse lol. You Will need some HP pots so be ready to use them.
Sorceror* they have two options. You can essentially just skip all the obstacles and teleport right into diablos little box. if you do get apocalypse ready and just cast nonstop. if your fast enough that can win it for you. If not do the obstacles and cast firewalls and chain lightning to wipe the floor with any minions he has. (fireballs and guardians work with a power and tactical advantage as well). Diablo is easiest killed with a fireball spell, apocalypse, chain lightning, and golem lol. The golem can distract at least =^.^=.
Well thats all the help i will give for the bosses =3
hope it helps someone a bit who just want to get the game over with lol
any questions i suppose i could edit this message to fix =3.
any other kind of help other than Crash errors and such i can be of help
i also want to point out that all the lore is in the playstation version of diablo 1
its in its own little menu and it has all the books in order explaining the whole entire story
its quite interesting and fun to read =3
it also explains some things they even left out of diablo 2 lol
perhaps to build on diablo 3's story but who knows x3
nice quick guide with good info and not to long a read. Good Job.
Regarding the ps1 version of the game i wish i still had it. I bought it for 15$ and played the hell outta it. Then realized it was bugged and you could not save a multi player game sadly. I Sold it back to a buy back store and i think they gave me 20$ for it lol.
glad you liked my guide =3 i just wanted to throw all that into one thread cuz of the king leoric problems and such lol
i still got it lol =3
mine can save anything but the glitch for the ps1 is it doesnt save unique items
i keep it for history purposes especially if i sold it back now i might get a dollar XD
Its actually alot more rare then you think
Proof. My all time fave arcade game is marvel vs capcom. I own at that game and i bought it for ps1 brand new. I still own it. Game stop gives 20$ store credit for it last time i checked and sells it for 30$. they are selling a 10 year old game for 30$ haha because there are so few copies out there for sale
anyways to get back on topic,again nice overall guide im sure it will be put to use form time to time
Nice guide I never thought of buying a knockback bow to kill the butcher, with the sorcerer I made him come up to a door with a wall where spells could pass, like a fence, and I killed him with charged bolt.
