How to Defeat Andariel in D2 Resurrected

Being a poison-based monster, she’s capable of releasing toxic green smoke from her mouth and attacking with her scorpion stingers. She’s a swift monster and will attack you relentlessly without a break.

One weakness that’s important for you to know is the fact that she’s vulnerable to Fire.

Another exciting thing to remember is that Andariel won’t cause much damage to you if you have high poison resistance.

So, an important tip would be to use poison resistance equipment and some antidote potions during the fight. You can also use terrain like the blood lake in the atrium outside her throne room as an obstacle.

You can run around it and buy yourself some time for your healing potion to work.
