what level should i be to kill diablo in hell mode?
It depends on the difficulty of the build you're using but most people leave nightmare at around 75, meaning you would be killing diablo in the high 70's/low 80's most likely.

Most builds pat/mat (ie kill Baal for the first time) at around low 80's/mid 80's assuming you don't rush through too much of the game.

depends on your build, items, and skill mainly. As TopHat said before, around lvl 70-80 is where most people face big d.

I aint sure but me and my friends all beat hell diablo at about lvl 65 it was harder but it is possable.
Normally it's not that easy to be only L65 when reaching Diablo. If you are actually playing the game, you will be perhaps L70-75 at the time you reach even just Andariel. I guess you are talking about getting rushed and teleporting past everything. If you play in a party, you can "kill" all bosses with everybody but one being L1, of course.

if you play yourself without rushes, take on Diablo when you feel ready for it. I doubt it will be before higher 60's though, and around 70+ is pretty normal.
But if you can do it when 65, why not...?

What a relief

I'm playing solo, and left nightmare on level 59 (and I feel like I did a lot of extra stuff Pindleskin runs, moo moo farm killing and all that) and found Hell to be just about impossible. I'm level 69 now and it's a lot easier, but it's nice to know I was underpowered when I started...I thought something was wrong with my build or I just plain sucked at this game.

I play on the realms but I build/quest my characters solo. That way I move onto the next dificulty whenever I get around to killing baal. It is VERY important to be aware of the penalties (resistances especially) nightmare and hell invoke, and prepare your characters accordingly.

which are -50 all res for nightmare, and -100 for hell.
These setbacks on your character along with monsters dealing higher elemental damage and being able to take more damage before dying is a common reason to be frustrated if you forgot about it ;)

No, it's -50% in nightmare. Perhaps you overlooked that you might have got +10% for solving the Anya quest in normal mode.

I don't like to argue without providing evidence, but there's really no evidenct to provide here. It's -40% in nightmare. I checked this just now by inspecting a slayer which has completed neither normal nor nightmare Anya rescues. No charms, either. Naked, too.

Edit: Whoops, here comes the science:

Why are my Resistances -40?
Resistances on Nightmare Difficulty start at -40 and -100 on Hell Difficulty. Whenever you enter games of those difficulty levels, your resistances will be changed; once you join a Normal Difficulty game, your resistances will be reset to a base of 0.

I checked it with a HF dummy who is now a mule. I stand corrected.
