Glitches, Tips, and Tricks for Diablo II Resurrected (D2R)

Welcome to our D2R Glitches, Tips, and Tricks guide. In this guide we will keep you updated on the latest glitches, tips and tricks for Diablo 2 Resurrected.

Diablo 2 Resurrected is a remaster of the original Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction so it’s no surprise that some of the glitches still remain from the original game and some of the glitches have been patched out. This guide will be continually updated as more glitches, tips and tricks are found.

Glitches in D2R

Mercenary Glitch (Patched Out)

(Note – This glitch has since been patched out in recent versions.)

The first glitch we are going to talk about is the Mercenary Bug glitch. The mercenary bug glitch is a way to make it to where melee mobs will not target your mercenary but ranged ones still will.

This glitch helps if your mercenary dies easily yet you want to have that insight weapon aura up as much as possible. The easiest way to attain this glitch is to get the waypoint for the Inner Cloister. Once you have this waypoint go northwest and open the door that leads to the jail level 3.

The Jail Level 3
The Jail Level 3

Once you open the door, take the Jail Level 3 entrance and then return to the inner cloister.  As soon as you enter back into the Inner Cloister make your way through the door closing it fast behind you trapping your mercenary on the other side.

Once your mercenary is trapped behind the door, make your way to the far east side of the room and way for your mercenary to teleport to your location. Once they do, your mercenary is now properly bugged and will no longer be targeted by melee mobs, but remember ranged mobs will.

Mephisto Moat Trick

The second glitch we are going to talk about involves the pathing of mephisto and the moat within his room. This glitch is mainly used by sorcs to easily kill Mephisto on any difficulty without taking damage.

Once you have made your way and entered the Durance of Hate level 3, Make your way over to mephisto and aggro him.

Once he is chasing you, teleport over the moat on the southern side of his room and he will get stuck on the stairs. Once you make it across, stand on the blood spot in the reference photo for an easy time damaging him down from ranged.

(Note – If you have a mercenary out for this, Mephisto will still attack it and kill it if you are standing too close so it is recommended to either let your merc die or make sure you are far enough away mephisto before doing runs) 

Tips in D2R

  • Act V – Freeing Anya for the 10 resistance to all

These quests can be completed in all 3 difficulties for a total of 60 Health points, 15 stat points, 30 resistance to all, and 12 skill points. If you do not know how to do any of these quests mentioned, please check out our complete Act I-V guides for help. 

Tricks in D2R

Skipping getting Khalim’s Flail in Act III (Patched Out)

(Note – In the upcoming 2.4 patch this skip has been patched out requiring you to get the flail.)

If you have entered Act III and are dreading the long quest line to get the flail, here’s how to skip it. If you have a friend that is past Act 3 and has the Travincal waypoint, have them join a game that you create.

Once they are in, travel to Travincal and kill the council. After killing the Council, return to town and talk to Cain. After talking to Cain you can now enter the Durance of Hate Level 2 via a portal.

Skipping the level requirement for Ancients Act V

This method and the aforementioned method makes it possible to get a level 1 all the way from normal Act I all the way to Hell Act V. To do this method you must have someone make a game that still needs the ancients killed.

Once you join their game, stand in town while the person or booster kills the Ancients and then Kills Baal. This will cause your level 1 in town to complete the baal kill quest pushing you into the next difficulty.
