Diablo 2 PC Cheats

Diablo 2



Hint for Defeating Andariel:

As you approach the Level 4 Jail there is the room that is filled with dark ones and some fire mages. Defeat them all by just running and killing first, the Shamans and next the projectile enemy fire mage. The other room next to this will be the room of Andariel the Queen. When I encountered it she had only 4 Dark Ones. With a Dark Shaman beating the 4 dark ones makes things easy. Fighting with Andariel face to face is too hard, so you better go back to the encampment and hire a 60 life Rogue to keep her busy. Stab Andariel from behind and presto your in ACT II. Then return to Andariel and the first thing you have to do is to sneak behind Andariel and blow her out as your Rogue (who you hired) is busy with her.

Easily Kill Andariel:

OK. This is simple. Just buy from Akara a Scroll of Town Portal and go to see Andariel. Make sure you have potions & antidotes because she has a poison attack. Fight her and hurt her about to the half of her health bar. Then run to the room outside Andariel's lair and use the scroll of town portal or tome of town portal and go to rogue encampment. Heal yourself and do all the arrangements that you have to and go to visit Andariel, again. Now she has half her health, IT'S MAGIC!!!! Now kill her and pick up her stuff and WOW you are in ACT II.

Hint Defeating Duriel:

First, hire a mercenary from Griez. Enter Tal Rasha's chamber and cast a town portal for an emergency exit. The main trick for defeating Duriel is to bring lots of health potions and STAND and FIGHT. (You may use Blaze if you have the sorceress.) You will do less damage to Duriel with hit and run, with the exception of Blaze. You may die a few times, so keep your gold in your stash. Try to keep a Town Portal in the chamber to come back quickly. Also, Duriel's cold attack is a Demonic attack and not an elemental damage, so your cold resistance will be useless.

Killing Diablo:

When you arrive at the point where you have to kill Diablo MAKE SURE that you have plenty of lightning and fire resistance. Although he lives in hell he has got a one hit kill lightning attack, and he will use it about every 30 to 45 seconds. You should also make sure you are over level 30 before you face him.

How To Kill Diablo Easily With A Sorceress:

Once you unlock all of the seals go to Diablo and use 'Static Field'. Static Feild will kill him very quickly if you're at a high level. It also works on mini bosses.

-Need 2 computers and 2 CDs: Find something really cool or expensive. Copy your character (found in save directory) to another computer. Start a multiplayer game using your copied character. Join this game with the other computer and you will be able to copy items you already have by trading with yourself.

-After you complete the 5th quest of act one (The one given to you by Charsi) it is better if you wait until later in the game to have her imbue an item for you, because later in the game you can get better weapons and armor, and having her imbue one adds 3 - 5 magical attributes.

-If you play Multiplayer on Battle.net Click the blue Crystal in the center of the screen and it will turn Purple. If you look at the text box it will say "Gem Activated" Then start a game or join one and you will find at least one Gem shrine and if you have a Gem in your inventory it upgrades it.

-If you can't find anything good to buy all you have to do is leave town and come back, everyone should have all new items for sale.

Refilling Chests:

If you find any chest in a cave that you want to go back to (golden). Just go do something else and after a little while it will refill with new and different items. This works with all chests in the game.

Get the Gold:

When you go inside the houses in act1 click on the sheets of the bed to get extra gold.

Horadric Trick:

The Horadric Cube can be filled with 3 gems of the same type (flawless, chipped etc.) and it will transmute to a single gem of a higher quality.

Horadric Cube Mixes:

3 health potions + 3 mana potions = 1 Rejuvenation Potion.

You may use any quality of potions for this one.


3 Health potions + 3 Mana + 1 Gem = 1 Full Rejuvenation Potion.

You may use any quality of potions and gem for this one.


1 health potion + 1 Strangling Gas potion = 1 Antidote Potion.

You may use any quality of health potion.


3 Gems of the same type and grade = 1 Gem of the next higher grade.

Useful to upgrade chipped and flawed gems.


3 Perfect Skulls + 1 Amulet = High % chance of getting a +1 or +2 to

character skills amulet.

Any 3 perfect gems can be used, but skulls seem to have a higher success

rate."Beware this one does not work 100% of the time"


3 Perfect Gems + 1 item "armor or weapon" = A new magical item of the same

item type. Items seem to be random, they can be better or worse. "This Can

not be done with unique, rare, or set items."


1 Axe + 1 Dagger + a Stack of Throwing Knives = One stack of Throwing Axes.

Any kind of axe, dagger, or throwing knives can be used, but all types

= plain throwing axes."so use the cheap stuff"


1 Ring + 1 emerald + 4 Antidote Potions = 1 Viridian Ring with 21-30 Poison


Quality of gem and ring used don't matter.


1 ring + 1 ruby + 4 exploding potions = 1 Garnet Ring with 21-30 Fire


Quality of gem and ring used don't matter.


1 ring + 1 sapphire + 4 thawing potions = 1 Cobalt Ring with 21-30 Cold


Quality of gem and ring used don't matter.


1 Ring + 2 Topaz gems = 1 Coral Ring with 21-30 Lightning resistance.

Quality of gem and ring used don't matter.


3 Amulets = 1 Ring

Quality of ring is roughly equivalent to the quality of the amulets used.


3 Rings = 1 Amulet

Quality of amulet is roughly equivalent to the quality of the rings used.


6 Perfect Gems "one of each type except skull" + Amulet = Prismatic amulet

with "16-25% Resist All" this one is buggy the amulet will morph when you

start a new game."Beware only about a 75% chance of working"


1 magic(blue) sword + 3 chipped gems = 1 3 socketed magic sword of same type

Any type of gem, and any normal or unique sword "magical and rare don't



2 Quivers of Arrows = 1 Quiver of Bolts

This Can save you a trip to town to buy more.


2 Quivers of Bolts = 1 Quiver of Arrows

This Can save you a trip to town to buy more.


1 Spear + 1 Quiver of arrows = A stack of Javelins.

Only makes javelins, never higher quality Javelins, no matter the type of

spear or number of arrows used.


Get the Dead Guy to Do It:

To win battles by not fighting them, you must choose a Necromancer guy and kill any enemy, (You need a wand) cast the Raise Dead spell on the dead enemy. As soon as the corpse explodes a skeleton will start following you. Find some bad guys and run close to them, then run away. Your skeleton will fight until it dies. The level of the skill is the number of how many skeletons you can raise.

Cow Level:

Beat the game. Then place Wirt's leg and a Tome of Town Portal inside the Horaidric Cube. Out comes a portal to the Cow Level that was legendary in Diablo.

Unlimited Portals:

To use this cheat, cast a Town Portal from a convenient location. Take the portal into town, but use the waypoint system and a bit of running to get back to your last location. With this, you can use the portal to go back into town an unlimited amount of times, but only if you never use it to go back.

*Note: A limited 2-way portal only used one way equals an unlimited 1-way portal.

Recovering Your Crap:

When you die and you can't get back to the place where you died, simply leave your game and rejoin it, or join a new game.

More Money:

If you want to get more money; identify your items because identified items are more valuable than unidentified. You also get more money if you repair items before selling them. For example if you repair any item for 100 and its value was before 200 now its value will be 300.

An easy way to get extra money is in Tristam (act I,the Cairn Stone Quest). Find Wirt's body in the top left corner of map. He gives up quite a bit of money. If you save the game and exit to the title screen then start the game again you can keep going back to Tristam and getting Wirt's money.

Run Diablo in a Window on Your Desktop:

Enter "-w" at the command line. If you have a shortcut on the deskop you will want to put the code in this way:

"C:Program FilesDiablo2Diablo2.exe" -w

(Be sure to put the -w in after the quotes.)

Item Editor:

See our download section here.

Extra Storage:

The legendary Horadric cube, found in Act II's Halls of the Dead (Dry Hills), can be placed into the personal stash to add extra storage. The cube itself only takes up 4 spaces but has a 12 space capacity when opened *Note: Be careful not to press the transmute button when doing this.

The unique Viper Amulet, also found in Act II (Claw Viper Temple in the Lost City), can be retrieved a second time even after the Horadric Staff is completed and used to open Tal Rasha's Tomb. It serves as a really good amulet, especially on the Normal skill level, but does not compare to amulets found on Nightmare and Hell difficulties.

More Life or More Items:

Normally you can't trade game items like Khalims flail or the Jade Figurine, but if you give the Jade Figurine to Meshif and get the golden bird you can trade that. All you have to do is find the figurine and turn it in to Meshif for the bird. Get online with a freind and give him the bird then log on with another character and have your friend give the bird to the other character. Repeat these steps, and storing the birds with the other character, then trade them to people for some really cool stuff! Whats worth more, a Wormskull bone helm or 3 birds of Ku'Ylea that together gives you 60 life! Exactly! Thats how to get either unlimited life or alot of cool items. Note:Just make sure you don't talk to Alkor with the Bird in your possession or the quest will be copleted and you will loose the ability do this tick.

Better Imbued Items:

Ever have Charsi imbue an item and get effects that don't help at all? Here's a solution. After giving Charsi the item and having her imbue it, check to see if it is to your liking. If it is not, hit Ctrl + Esc. This should take you back to windows. Now hit Ctrl + Alt + Delete. This brings up a menu of programs running. Chose Diablo II and hit "End Task." This will either close Diablo II or in under 10 seconds bring a message saying program not responding. Just hit "end task" again and it will close Diablo II. If done quickly, the game will not have autosaved yet and you can reload your character and try again. I've imbued some awesome swords after 3-4 tries. Good Luck!
