Introduction

"Diablo Walks the Earth", these are the famous words to warn you of the rise of the Diablo Clone. This special event, known as the "World Event", is the only way to gain access to the most sought after and powerful Charm in Diablo 2, the Annihilus.




Spawning Diablo Clone

Multiplayer:

  • Between 75 and 125 copies of The Stone of Jordan (SoJ) have to be sold to a vendor in town, to trigger this event. The SoJ sold count restarts after the last spawning of Diablo Clone on a Multiplayer server.
  • The SoJ can be sold in any difficulty (Normal, Nightmare, Hell) / mode (Softcore, Hardcore, Classic, etc.) to increase the counter
  • When an SoJ is sold on a server, every game in Hell difficulty receives the message "xxx Stones of Jordan Sold to Merchants". The number displayed is a total sum of all sold Stones of Jordan and doesn't reset to 0 when the World Event is triggered.
  • WARNING: THE RINGS CAN NOT BE REPURCHASED AFTER SELLING, IT'S JUST GONE!

Single Player:

  • 1, in words ONE, SoJ needs to be sold in Single Player. ONLY SELL IT IN HELL WHEN YOU ARE READY TO FIGHT!
  • WARNING: THE RING CAN NOT BE REPURCHASED AFTER SELLING, IT'S JUST GONE!

Additional Information:

  • When sufficient SoJ's are sold, the iconic message "Diablo Walks the Earth" appears in all Hell difficulty games of that server.
  • Diablo Clone spawns only in Hell difficulty. He replaces the first Superunique monster that you encounter. You have the ability to drag him to a place in which you want to fight him!
    Example:
    The World Event is triggered while you are farming Andariel in Act 1. Inside the Catacombs no Superunique exists, so Diablo Clone can't spawn here. Go back to town and choose the location in which you want to fight him. Frequently used spots are the Stony Field, where he replaces Rakanishu, and the Frigid Highlands, where he replaces Eldritch the Rectifier.

The Fight

The fight against Diablo Clone is very similar to regular Diablo. There are some nuances to take note off:

  • Diablo Clone moves a lot faster in general.
  • His Attacks are significantly stronger.
  • He starts by casting Armageddon as soon as you are in visual range.

Tips

  • Use the Stat "Prevent Monster Heal", which requires a successful attack to land on Diablo Clone. A Weapon of Vileness with this Stat can easily be shopped from any weapons Vendor. Add a Cold Damage or Poison Damage charm to easily see when a successful attack is applied.
    • Note: Mercenaries do not apply Prevent Monster Heal.
    • Skills and Attacks (through items) that deal damage on every single frame, such as Fire Wall, or Poison Damage stop regeneration while the damage is persisting.
  • Use Lower Resist on Elemental Damage Builds to reduce his 95% All Resistances (Fire / Cold / Lightning / Poison)
  • life Tap allows melee builds to heal 50% of their inflicting Physical Damage as Life.
  • Spawn Diablo Clone in an area in which you have an easy time killing off surrounding enemies.
  • Use capped Fire and Lightning Resistances against him.

Diablo Clone Hunting

As we don't know how the Servers are currently working, we can't say for certain how Diablo Clone Hunting works. This information is added as soon as we are sure.


Summary

  • Sell The Stone of Jordan to spawn Diablo Clone.
  • He spawns instead of the first Superunique you encounter after the message "Diablo walks the Earth".
  • Use Prevent Monster Heal to remove his fast regeneration.
  • Spawn him in an area in which you can kill surrounding monsters. Eldritch the Rectifier (Frigid Highlands), Rakanishu (Stony Field), and Corpsefire (Den of Evil) are popular places to do so.
