With the release of the Remastered version of the timeless game, Diablo II: Resurrected, the Playerbase is thrilled as they get to relive the experience.

How to Beat Duriel in Diablo 2 Resurrected


Before we get to defeating Duriel, we have to know who he is, where he is, and what kind of attacks he does. Duriel is a Demon who is the guardian of the sandy and magical lands of Lut Gholein. In Lut Gholein, the Prime Evils left him there to guard the Tomb of Tal Rasha. You will find in the Chambers of Tal Rasha, to get to him you will need the Horadric Staff which you craft from prior missions.

Duriel uses Close-Quarter Combat which is apparent from the Arena he belongs to as it is small with very little room to get the distance between you and Duriel. With these Close-Quarter Combat styles, he also casts certain effects like Holy Freeze on you and your allies which hurts and slows your movement. This boosts the effectiveness of Duriel’s attacks. Also for a guy this big he sure runs fast and hits hard so always be cautious around him.

How to Defeat this Act 2 Boss

You can use any class type to beat Duriel but the ones I suggest using are the ones with long-range attacks. Barbarians and Assassins are a decent pick as you you can deal damage and take a few hits with the Barbarian Class and Dodge them as an Assassin. But with these classes, you will have to very be careful with your health as Duriel hits hard and one hit may be fatal. In such cases, a bait and shoot combat style will work.

Builds like the Summoner Necro and Summoner Druid work the best as you can summon your troops that distracts Duriel and you can attack from afar. No matter what you go with, you will need potions and a lot of it. The Holy Freeze is brutal so carrying a stock of Thawing Potion will give you the edge you need over Duriel. A Thawing Potion grants the user Cold Resistance and removes the effects of Cold Attacks. Along with this potion, carrying Health and Rejuvenation Potions will help tremendously to sustain yourself in the fight. You can also get Companions along the way and use them as the Bait but make sure you top them up with these Potions.

Now that you know what to do go and defeat Duriel and get to Angel Tyrael. This was all about beating Boss Duriel in Diablo 2 Resurrected. Hopefully, this guide has helped defeat him with ease. You can also check our guides on Imbuing Items and Best Paladin Build in Diablo 2 Resurrected.
