In this guide, we will discuss all the details about Terror Zones in D2R 2.5 Patch.
Diablo 2 Resurrected PTR 2.5 is available to PC owners on August 25th at 10 AM PDT. In addition to various bug fixes, this TPR debuted Terror Zones, an experimental feature that players can choose to enable when starting a game, and it will provide additional variations to help players farm more experience and treasure Diablo 2 Resurrected Items.
What are Terror Zones in Diablo 2 Resurrected Patch 2.5?
The journey to level 99 is a well-known and challenging activity for Diablo players, and if achieved, it will be a milestone. So Blizzard wanted to provide an alternative to repeatedly farming Baal, Diablo, or Nihlathak to make it easier for more people to reach max level, which is where Terror Zones come in.
After players turn on a Terrior Zone game, the forces of the Burning Hells will each hour focus their demonic might on the specific zone to terrorize them, and monsters in these zones will be at least two levels higher than your current level or their original level, up to a maximum per difficulty.
To indicate that a player has entered a Terror Zone game, there will be text and messages on the on-screen, in-game text displayed on the auto-map, a special audio cue, and a unique iconography next to a terrorized monster's name.
Level Details For Each Monster Type Per Difficulty
Base: +2 levels up to level 45
Champion: +4 levels up to level 47
Unique: +5 levels up to level 48
Base: +2 levels up to level 71
Champion: +4 levels up to level 73
Unique: +5 levels up to level 74
Base: +2 levels up to level 96
Champion: +4 levels up to level 98
Unique: +5 levels up to level 99
The base player level used for the above calculations is taken from the creator of the game. If the host leaves the game, a new player will be selected for the base.
