No: the lowest possible total HP is "1". Black Death hit for more HP (6-22 HP/hit) than they deduct from your max HP (1 HP/hit).1 In most cases, their final blow kills you before their max HP modifier could. In single-player, all deaths "permanent" kills, as you're forced to load from your last save or start over.2 In multiplayer, you can restart naked at ...

The "spawn" version of the game was popular among Blizzard titles around the original WarCraft/StarCraft/Diablo era. It's essentially a way to let a friend try the game out, or play a few minutes of multiplayer together, without having to buy a copy. It's almost like a shareware or demo version of the game. Prior to the advent of high speed residential ...

From what I remember, and this forum thread agrees with me is that The Rogue became Blood Raven, a minor super unique quest mob from Act 1 of Diablo 2 The Sorcerer became The Summoner, Horizon's impersonator, a super unique quest mob from Act 2 of Diablo 2 This leaves the most likely outcome, the bulky Warrior became the canon Diablo in Diablo 2.

The potion of healing restores HP with the following formula: Min. Healing: bonus · maxlife/8 Max. Healing: bonus · 3 · maxlife/8 where the bonus varies with the class, as you can see from the following table: The HPs are restored immediately.

I've read completely through a couple of guides and tried many things out for myself. Here is what I have learned: Character Modifications There is really nothing that changes for your character between games. The only one that does is that you lose any spell effects that you currently have, which you would anyway for simply entering town. Modifications ...

In Diablo 1 King Leorics son Prince Albrecht is kidnapped, driving the king mad, and used to give Diablo a human form by plunging the soul stone in to him, but he is not strong enough to let Diablo escape the dungeon. The warrior is his brother Prince Aidan and during his decent down in to the dungeon he is corrupted in to believing that the only way to ...

No, you cannot purchase the original Diablo game, in digital or physical form, from Blizzard's online store. The game still appears to be available on Amazon for either the PC or PlayStation. If not, you can try searching for other releases or bundle. In 1998 there was a re-release bundle called Diablo + Hellfire. Blizzard also released a Game of the Year ...

A virtual machine running on Virtual Box will probably do the trick. One of the main downsides of trying to run games on VM's is the slowdown from virtualizing modern graphics, which is totally not a problem here! Further, you should be able to avoid any windows compatibility problems by just installing Windows 98 in the VM.

Diablo tries to open an incoming port when connecting to battle.net, wich is important for hosting multiplayer games. (Source: portforward.com) Normally, a program doesn't need to have admin rights to do this, but on Vista and newer it has to "ask nicely" via UAC beforehand or an error occurs. The problem is that Diablo (and Diablo II) were released well ...

The warrior became the Dark Wanderer. By the official game fiction though, the Warrior was the character who defeated Diablo at the end of the first game, and drove the soulstone into his head. Source

There are three main points (among many) that cause the actual chance to hit to be reduced even if it is above 100%. The Armor Class of the monster being attacked. When using ranged attacks, the chance to hit is reduced based on the distance between you and the monster. The maximum actual chance to hit is 95% after all other calculations are done. In ...

You can't run it trow a normal method Here is what I found. To recap: Classic won't work since you're running an Intel. Diablo under Classic (on PPC) works poorly or not at all anyway, in my experience. You can try SheepShaver. However: it can be confusing to set up (the linked directions @Xeem are pretty good); you need an OS 8 or 9 system ...

Life stealing on Diablo 2 only works with physical damage. Have you checked how much of your 20-40 damage does actually come from physical? EDIT: Sorry. If it's original Diablo then you may be using a bow, you can't steal life with them even if the life steal comes from another item (your Crown). Source: ...

From a response here As of (the latest) patch 1.09 for the original Diablo game the save game files are now located in the install directory. The naming format is: multi_0.sv, multi_1.sv, etc for multi-player and single_0.sv, single_1.sv, etc for single player. Deleting those files should set you back to the beginning. Since you said that you ...

Download the latest version of Diablo for all players. Download here or through Battle.net. Set up Hamachi for an artificial connection. I forget whether you use Direct Cable Connect or LAN, from here, but connecting should be straightforward with no hitches if you have everything set up properly. You can also just use Battle.net and create a private ...

If I remember correctly, the only penalty was that your items stay in the place where you died. Comparing to Diablo II if you quit the game and start it again, you body will NOT appear in town. EDIT Found this thread where they discuss the same thing as you asked: http://diablo.incgamers.com/forums/showthread.php?682535-Death-and-Dying

I believe it's a multiplayer demo version of Diablo where you can only do the first quest and get to up the Butcher (second level of the dungeon I think, which is the the same as getting to Blood Raven in D2). There's also a bunch of other restrictions as well, such as not being able to talk to NPCs.
