How to Defeat Duriel in D2 Resurrected

You’ll face Duriel at Tal Rasha’s Tomb. Once the boss fight starts, it won’t take much time for you to realize that Duriel is no ordinary boss.

He’s considered as one of the hardest-to-beat bosses in Diablo 2 Resurrected.

It’s recommended to take Duriel to the big chamber for an ample amount of space for you to work with. If things go a little south, you’ll need to distract Duriel by summoning another monster and using the opportunity to use the Town Portal.

You can use Cold Attacks to slow Duriel Down during the fight, and ranged is probably the best way you can tackle the entire boss fight without putting yourself at too much of a risk.

There are a few recommended classes to play against this monster. Classes such as Assassin, Barbarian, and Necromancer.

Assassin
Perhaps the best class to play against Duriel is Assassin. Using the Burst of Speed ability, you can leave your trails behind the boss. Meaning you can easily outrun him.

Barbarian
Another amazing class to face Duriel with is the Barbarian. Barbarian is really helpful when fighting with melee attacks. Activating healing points and equipping good weapons can lead to an easy victory with this class.

Necromancer
One of the most decorated classes in Diablo 2. Using a Bonemancer, you can make full use of the Bone Prison during the fight, following it up with another spell of yours.
