Product Description

From Amazon

One of the most impressive and successful computer role-playing games of recent years is Diablo, and creators Blizzard Entertainment turned up the heat with its similarly popular follow-up Diablo 2.

In this sprawling game, you take the role of an adventurer out to stop the evil Diablo from bringing his equally evil brother Baal back from the dead. It's a daunting quest, and the game itself can sometimes seem as awesome to overcome. But thanks to this strategy guide, things can be a little easier. The book features detailed breakdowns of all the classes of adventurer, and how best to equip and train them for their arduous journey.

It gives an in-depth overview of all the skills, spells, potions, weapons and items you might possibly need on your way, along with staring a hard stare into the cold eyes of the enemies you might meet. On top of this, it gives a stage-by-stage breakdown of your quest, with helpful hints and tips of how to cope with the many obstacles you will find in your path.

It is, as you would expect, terribly useful for those brick-wall moments, when you can't seem to get any further and also serves as a much more detailed depository of knowledge than the game's manual can muster, as well as being a helpful guide to the games online multiplayer options. If you want to delve deeper into this already very immersing game, then this guide should will certainly help you on your merry way.--David Bailey

2.0 out of 5 stars Worst Strategy guide ever purchased Sept. 10 2000
This is the worst strategy guide I ever bought: Why?
1. No strategy. Is this spell better than that?? This book will give you no such info.
2. 40% of the book is pictures and tables.
3. Quest info is pretty limited.
4. Read it in 30 minutes (due to lack of content)
The reason I buy strategy guides is to help me understand the logic of the game and help me through some rough spots. This book did not help. I found much better info on the web.
By comparision the Diablo I strategy guide was much better, provided more strategy and it helped me defeat the Butcher. This is the first time I write an online review for a book. And I would not do so if the book was not so lame

2.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Dec 26 2005
Don't think of buying it.You would be better off playing with your eyes closed!
Granted, it does give you a couple of good hints but other than that, POOP!

1.0 out of 5 stars Piece of *!@$ (DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY) June 3 2002
By A Customer
if you ever play D2, do not buy this guide, I did when it was brand new, then you know what happened? They released version 1.02, and changed every skill stat, and item stat in the game, making every chart in the entire flippin book worthless. And even the writers opinions were killed because all the changing was to "change the balance" which makes other things more powerful than before, and some things less. As I write this, I still play D2 (quite obsesively) and we are now on patch 1.09 so even the expansion pack strategy guide, is out of date (based on 1.07) and it is now rumoured that version 1.10 is comming out soon. I sometimes look in my strategy guide and look at an item's stats, then look at the item in my inventory on the game and compare stats, all I can think about is laughing at how I wasted $20 on this when it was new. :(

1.0 out of 5 stars sorry book Dec 23 2001
This book is just sorry.. I never thought that wasting (money) for this thing would kill me like that. Its better if you just play it normally by yourself or log on and use (an online site). thats the way i had to do it, cuz the book only tells you how to kill diablo with the 5 Diablo 2 characters. They should really put more work into the book, cuz it just plain sucks... I suggest that who ever thinks of buying this book, is way better off by playing it their own way. Thats the way i had to do it, so its just a good suggestion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Something for stupid people May 31 2001
The only thing I found useful in this guide was the list of items. Everything else in the guide has either been outdated, or is just some crap opinion from some guy saying that "It would be powerful if you did this..." and it's really only something useful in a single player game when you're just messing around.
I suggest to anyone that plays Diablo2, to just enjoy the game and look up anything they need to know about items on websites. All the other info in this book is pretty much useless, and becomes your own knowledge within a week of playing on your own anyways!

1.0 out of 5 stars this guide sux... March 6 2001
By A Customer
this guide sux! it doesnt give any overall characterstrategies, and tells you everything you DONT need to know aboutquests - i dont care how to find the boss, tell me how to kill him! italso makes the bad skills seem good, which caused me to WASTE SKILLPTS on them. it also doesnt show how good some skills are. the guidesdoesnt show the damages for weapons, or even mention exceptionalitems. blizzards official website gives more info, and for free! italso has more pictures, and in color. i thought the guide would giveinformation not on the site - which MOST guides do. but no, it wasjust a waste of money. id get a better guide if i went to kinkos andtold them to print out and bind the whole blizz site.

1.0 out of 5 stars I'd rate it with .5 stars! March 1 2001
By A Customer
Too bad one-half of a star isn't an option, because this is by FAR the worst strategy guide I've had the misfortune of buying. I'd played through Act I and was starting Act II when I bought this guide, and when I leafed through the pages, I realized how gypped I was! A majority of the information is outdated, now that I have the newest patch. I've got first hand experience with the game, and this is really inaccurate. If you want a decent guide for this game, hope Prima makes one. They know how to do it, their Diablo guide was awesome. BradyGames should call them up and take notes. This game guide is missing weapon and monster details. People want details in a game like this. Even the quest section is bad. It gives a brief, ineffective walkthrough. And, not that it hampers comprehension, but there are spelling and grammatical errors abound. I only recommend buying this if you are a die-hard fan of the game.

2.0 out of 5 stars Outdated Feb. 15 2001
This strategy guide has several problems.
First, it was outdated since the first patch of Diablo II to 1.03. Several skill tables are just not true anymore.
Then it is not complete. No normal item descriptions, requirements, exceptional items, detailed monster information are just not there.
The Chaos Sanctuary at Blizzard's website is better than this book.
I'm playing Diablo II since its release; both with single player and with realm characters.
