Diablo Attack Skills
Fire Nova: Does fire damage. A very painful spell that hurts a lot if you don't have fire resistance, it starts out as a full circle around him, but as it moves away gaps appear between the flames, which allows you to jump in between.
Fire Storm: If you're in range, Diablo will throw pools of flames in your direction, again you have to dodge them laterally.
Fire Wall: During the attack, Diablo will release a wall of fire that follows in a straight line. This is easier to avoid than Fire Storm, either by running to the left or right of the wall.
Melee Attacks 1 and 2: Diablo has two types of melee attacks that he uses against you.
Pink Lightning: This is a lightning attack that deals with physical and lightning damage.
Cold Hand: Does magic damage and chills for 8 seconds.
Strategies & Tips
Diablo's core attacks are based on Fire and Lightning, so full Fire and Lightning resistance will help a lot. Bring lightning and fire resistance potions and d2r items, the most dangerous spell Diablo can use is the pink lightning spell, he sprays the attacks in the direction he's facing and can spin in circles while blowing it out. So, it's best to keep going in circles around him and keep moving until he doesn't stop using the spell. Diablo also likes fire attacks. So, bring as much fire-resistant gear and enchantments as possible.
He is most vulnerable during the slow charge he does at you. Run away from the charge's direction and keep hitting him, slowing him down helps to make the slow charge last longer in cc attacks like cold attacks and Freeze aura, the Decrepify curse, and so on.
Also, don't forget that there are many city portals, so using portals and hiding spots to heal is a good option. Opening one at the entrance of the level before going to face it will allow you to recover your body very quickly in the event of death. But keep in mind that Diablo is fast and can appear on you within moments.
Sometimes, Diablo will take you alone, without the support of his minions, so it is a big help that players have followers. Not only will they grab Diablo's attention, but you'll also be able to crowd him and bring him down together. However, if this happens, Diablo may try to escape. If they fought against him alone, he would be able to kill most of his followers.
In the end, each player's strategy will be different based on their build and class, but when it comes to Diablo and his lieutenants, there are some general strategies to employ.
