Once you've completed the quest to kill the oversized slug-thing that is Duriel, the correct Tal Rasha tomb symbol no longer shows up in your quest log. How do you find him to kill him again? Is there an easier way than going into all 7 tombs?

If you created the game and still remember the symbol, it shouldn't have changed. Otherwise, the symbols on in the Summoner's chamber in the Arcane Sanctuary show the false tombs. The one symbol that doesn't appear there is the true tomb.

The 3 prime evils (also NM Andariel and Pindleskin) are better choices for boss farming as they drop better loot.

+1 My method usually involves just going to the tombs and exploring them until I find the right one. I know I could go back to the Sanctuary to find the symbol, but I like the extra looting and leveling. – edsobo Dec 5 '11 at 16:28

I checked a couple threads, and it looks like you need to revisit the summoner in order to locate the correct tomb. However, it would also seem that Duriel runs are not that popular since the other act bosses have better loops drops, and are easier to kill.

Unless you're dead-set on exploring all seven tombs, here's one method I use:

I start from the rightmost tomb, head left until I find the correct tomb, and then go in, ignoring any other tombs.

Then the leftmost tomb on the map will always be the correct tomb, because tombs further left won't show up on the map.

It should be noted that this technique only works in single player. – Rotsor Dec 14 '11 at 16:29
