Diablo II

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

Cow level
When you have the Horadaric Cube, 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.

Retrieving 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.

Keeping the Dead monsters Dead
I have realized that, when fighting baddies that raise their minion, a necromancer has an interesting tool. I like to go in with a golem and a skeletal mage [just one] to do the attacking, I cast Iron Maiden to help them out and then I get ready to raise normal skeletons. Why? It is true that these minions are weak and don't last long, but every monster killed which you raise is one less the baddie can raise to fight you.

Typically there are a limited number of minions that the baddie has [exception being when there is a mummy sarcofagus generating new minions - in which case, get rid of it quickly] so if you keep raising them before the baddie does, they run out of minions. Once that has happened you can dispatch the annoying baddie much easier.

Diablo II Tips

Back to top
experience and magis items
For those of you who are on act 2 there is a relitively easy way of filling up your stash with gold. In the far oasis there is a level called the sand maggot lair which is full of chests which 9 tines out of ten has powerful weapons, armour etc (it is also good if you have gloves or boots of fortune to increase your chances of getting exepionly powerfu stuff)>
also if you work your way through the three levels your experience really racks up especialy if you are at lvls 17-20 and you can redo this level as many times as you want! Awsome!

How to level up more quickly!!!!

-If you have an original character or other player's character w/c is ranked at a high level already, lets say level 40-99, you can find a more stronger item but less on level required like charms or sword or even armors right? Then you start the program in window mode by typing diablo program include the extension with "-w". Ex. C:\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe -w. Open a new player in Multiplayer mode in windows mode, choose any character you want. Then start again another window using the "-w" extension, now use the player in high level and join the multiplayer mode. Now you can transfer what ever items at the player you want to level up. You could transfer Charms to make the new character more stronger or even less requirement armor or sword or axe with stronger damage. This way you can make the level up of your new character more faster.

Transfer by yourself
IF you have multiple charcters on battle net and want to pass around items from one character to the other, you are in luck. First pick the character that has the item and start a game,make sure to use a password,and drop the item somewhere in town,or wherever you want to. Wait more than 5 minutes then exit and get your other character and pick up the item.

Note from fckup:
To be safest, exit and atttempt to enter again, before you drop anything. If this works, then you can proceed.

Diablo II Glitches

Back to top
Duplicate items over the LAN
This glitch requires at least two computers connected to a local network.
Have one person host a TCP/IP game of Diablo II. This person MUST NOT close the game or leave until you are done with the glitch.
After the game is hosted, have the other person (or people) join the game.
Take whatever item you want duplicated, and drop it on the ground. Then DO NOT CLICK SAVE AND EXIT. Disconnect your network cable, (or turn off your wireless adapter) and wait for it to say "Connection lost" or something like that. Then it will take you back to the menu screen. Reconnect your computer, and join the game. The item will still be in your inventory, and on the ground as well. Pick up the item on the ground, and then you can save and exit. Now you will have two of the same item the next time you log in. This is really useful to clear up inventory space with gems, because you can combine three of the same quality gem to get the next level of gem. (Ex: You have two chipped, two flawed, and two regular topaz. You can duplicate one of the chipped, and turn the three chipped into a flawed, the three flawed into a regular, and the three regular into a flawless. Voila, extra inventory space.)
You can use this to duplicate your gold, just drop the gold on the ground like you would the items.
This also works to give items to characters that are on the same computer, just log in with the other character the second time through.
You can also do this to give brand new characters the Horadric cube, or other such items.
Note: I repeat, the host of the game cannot close the game, or leave. This means the host cannot duplicate items. After everyone is done, the host can close the game (If the host leaves before everyone is done, the items they have sitting on the ground will disappear.)

Diablo II Cheats

Back to top
Gamble Cheat
If you're using the Gamble funcion when buying with Gheed, Elzix or whomever, here's a good tip:

Save before you buy, then buy the item, when you buy it, if you don't like it just press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, select Diablo 2 in the dialog box and click on End Now, you'll exit the game without saving, so just reopen the game and you won't have bought the item anyway.

Infinte Cow Games!
If you are playing in a cow game you created by yourself, DON'T KILL THE KING!!!! That way you can create the level over and over again. The more cow games you play, the more experience, gold, and items you will get. You can get so much gold it will fill up both your stash and the pouch you carry with you. For a level 99, that is a lot of gold. It also increses you chances of getting uniques and set items. If you are in a Closed Realm game created another player, leave the group BEFORE you kill the king. That way they can keep creating the level themselves.

More exp for Necro
Everybody knows the "player 8" cheat for extra exp. That cheat only multiplies the life of the enemies not the damage or any other stat, so i used a blood golem on an part with easy monsters, so that he can recover the damage that he takes from the enemy and keep his life high, so just leave the blood golem and wait (amplify damage curse if you dont want to wait)(tap of life if your golem is losing life) and you got an indestructible golem fighting X8 life enemys, there is another trick with this, use CORPSE EXPLOTION!!! IF YOU TARGET A CHAMPION OR UNIQUE MONSTER's CORPSE WITH 8 or more times it's life IMAGINE THE BOOM!!! 60 to 100% ANY MONSTER WITHIN RANGE WITH LESS THAN 60% OF THE UNIQUE MONSTERS LIFE WILL DIE!!! I havent tried it, but maybe activating this cheat, killing Diablo's mages then setting number of players back to 1, make diablo walk over the corpses, CORPSE EXPLOTION ON THE MAGE's CORPSES THAT HAVE 8 OR MORE TIMES THEIR LIFE AND I THINK IT SHOUL HURT DIABLO ENOUGH, example: IT WILL BE 5 MAGES X 8 TIMES LIFE, 60%damage... BOOM
