Diablo 2 Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

Free Identifications While In Town

After you rescue Deckard Cain from Tristam, he will identify items when you talk to him for FREE.

Good Inventory Tip

If you get totems from Akara you can fit up to 20 scrolls in each appropriate book. This helps to keep your inventory free.

100% Health While In Town

Talk to Akara and she will heal you, and if you have any minions she will heal them too.

Full Rejuvenations

Since full rej's are next to impossible to find, and take up a gem to make, simply transmute as you would ordinarily using 3 life, 3 mana, and a gem in the Horadric Cube. Next, go to a merchant and sell that rej. At the same place, click on buy, hold shift down and right click to get full rej's. Continue as needed. Make sure that when you fill up your belt, that you have an entire horizontal line filled and one in the first column of the second horizontal line so you don't have to spend forever filling up and you don't run out, or you will have to waste a gem to make another. Excellent hint for those oh so tricky little monsters in the harder acts.

Lvling To 25 And 45

Once you get to lv 20 have someone take you to ancients in normal and you'll get to lvl 25. Then once you get to lvl 40 have someone take you through hell ancients and you'll get to lvl 45.

Better Gems

1. I bet everyone knows about gem shrines. They upgrade your gems right? If your me, then your proably having problems finding those gem shrines. Well there is an easy way of doing so. Start a game and go and explore the blood moor. If you don't find a gem shrine, save and exit. Repeat this process untill your happy what you got. This takes a lot of patience and taks a lot of time. You won't fine gem shrines everytime you do this. WARNING: if you have your gems in your cube and if you go to a gem shrine, you will get a chipped gem. So keep the gems in your inventory not your cube. 2. If you can go to hell or nightmare mood then you'll have a better time getting gems. Go to the fortress in act 4 and kill enemies. You'll find A LOT better gems than you would find in the last difficulty. If your lucky you might be able to find some gem shrimes.

Find Items

When you kill a monster or a evil some body you can hear an item fall, but most of the time you can't see it and have to run your mouse all over the screen and see if it will highlight. Well all you have to do is hold down alt and everything in screen distance be highlighted. This is very very very useful

Best Way To Gain Levels With Necromancer...

(Note: The begginning might suk...but after 20-30 levels it's gonna be smooth-
sailing...)

Step#1: Once you can...try to MAX ur Iron Maiden and Iron Golem...

Step#2: One you think you're ready...(prove it by completing the game 
first)...goto The Secret Cow Level...remember those cows do major 
damage...that's where Iron Maiden comes in...it's like a better version of 
Thorns...and Iron Golem also has thorns already...so A:The cows almost 
kill themselves on contact...B:It's almost one hit KO for ur golem against the 
cows...:):):)

Windowed Game

Start the game with the "-w" command line parameter to run it in a window on the desktop.

A Cube Formula

Full rejuvination is really handy because it get's your health and mana up instantly instead of a bit at a time like normal potions. If ya didn't know . 3 mana + 3 = 1 rejuvination and 3 rejuvination are 1 full. But the real cool thing is: 3 mana + 3 healing + 1 gem = full rejuvination!!!

Translucent Golems!

If you make a Iron golem from a ethernal idem, he or it, will be translucent like the item it came from.

Cow Level

Successfully complete the game to get the Horadaric Cube. Then, obtain "Wert's Leg" in Tristram (where you go to rescue Deckhard Cain). Go to the northwest part of the town and search the boy's body. Place both Wert's leg and a Tome of Town Portal in the Horadaric Cube, and it will open a portal to a hidden level filled with axe carrying cows. Do not go through the portal until you are over level 35 because the cows are quite numerous and strong.

Imbue Without Worry

When you get an item and want to imbue and are worried about the outcome, copy the "Save" folder from the Diablo 2 folder to the desktop or any other location. Start your game and imbue. If you do not like what happened, save the game and exit. You will now be at the main menu again. Press [Alt] + [Tab] and copy the save folder back to its original location. Then click "Single Player Game" and start. You have another chance to imbue the item. Repeat this until you get the desired effect.

Retrieve Items After Death

Save and exit the game after dying. Restart the game, and your corpse will be in town, allowing you to retrieve your possessions.

Avoid No-win Situation

Press [Esc] when facing imminent death, then save and exit the game. Load the game again to start in town, where you can buy weapons, life, etc.

Gain Money And Items Quickly

Travel past the Blood Moor and look for a cave. The cave has two levels, with a golden chest somewhere at the second level. Inside are usually health potions, mana potions, scrolls of town portal or identify, unidentified weapons and armor, and sometimes even a rare item that can be sold for a great deal of money. If you identify the item and it is something that you do not want, sell it. Save and exit the game. The next time the game is loaded, the chest will still be there with different items. This can be done as many times as needed.

More Money For Items

Identify or repair items before selling them.

Infinite One Way Portal

Cast a Town Portal from a safe location, then take the portal into town. Use the waypoint system and run to get back to your last location. This allows you to use the portal to go back into town an unlimited number of times as long as you do not use it from town to return to where you were previously.

Duplicate Items

Note: This trick only works in an Open Battlenet game, as the characters need to be saved on your computer. This trick also requires two computers with two copies of Diablo 2. Get the items to be duplicated. Copy the "Save" folder from the Diablo 2 folder of that computer and paste it on your desktop. Go online with both computers and meet in a game. Give the items to be duplicated to the second computer, then save and exit. Press [Alt] + Tab] on the first computer to switch to Windows and copy the "Save" folder from your desktop back to its original location, overwriting its current contents. Return and join the other computer in the game. You will now have all your original items and the other computer will have a copy of them. Note: This does not work with the +1 Skill book from Act 2, as you are only allowed to do it once. Note: This trick also only works in an Open Battlenet game. Take the item to be duplicated and place it in your inventory. Then, save and exit the game. Next, come back to the game or join a different one. Drop the item you want to duplicate. Make a note of the game name and password, then sign off of your ISP -- do not save and quit the game. Have another person in the game keep it open while you are logged off. Sign back on to your ISP, go back into the game, and pick the item that you dropped. It will also still be in your inventory, so you now have two copies of that item.
