    How'd You Kill The Butcher In D1?

    Didn't see a Diablo forum so with recent news I might as well post it here. But for me I was all the way near Diablo and a "Staff of Flash" dropped so I figured I might as well try this. And low-and-behold two Flash's killed him. He didn't even get a hit in on me.

    I was able to beat him with crappy gear as a warrior by putting almost all of my stat points in dexterity. When we fought, he barely hit me and I barely missed him.

    I managed to trap him behind bars once with a rogue. Other than that, I've only been able to beat him with a warrior. I've only played the game a few times though.

    Re: How'd You Kill The Butcher In D1?

    same....well, I think that's basically what we all did the first time. Clear mobs around his room, open the door, kite him around the room, occasionally hit him once then keep running....

    Re: How'd You Kill The Butcher In D1?

    i ran away often. most of the time i would skip him and come back after clearing 2 more levels. never had firewall or any worthwhile spells when i first came to him so that strat never even occured to me. after awhile i learned i could run him to a door with a fence or the stairwell and just kill him using some seriously flawed ai lol

    Get right in his face and beat him down.

    Lure to grate, shoot through.

    As above, but with the stairs down.

    Scroll of Fire Wall.

    Scroll of Stone Curse.

    So many options.

    if i played the warrior i'd exit and reenter so many times until i found a weapon with the Of the bear affix from griswold so i could chain knockbacks and beat him pretty easy.

    Re: How'd You Kill The Butcher In D1?

    It took me two or three deaths to figure out he's too strong for me ;)
    Sooo... I leveled up few times in the deeper parts of dungeon and then returned to finish him off. It still took a few tries to get the timing and the rhythm right but at last I just stood in the doorway and kept hitting him, interrupting his attack, and finally take him down...
    Good times :)

    Clear out all of level 2 and do hit and run with lots of potions. I always though moving on before killing him was cheating.

    Re: How'd You Kill The Butcher In D1?

    i remember i immediately started a new game if there wasn't a dying townsman in front of the cathedral -.-

    nah dude.. this was not about leveling. clearing the level was a prerequisite as a warrior. so you can find a room with bars and a door, find a bow and arrows... ahem..

    anyway, my first time ever butcher kill... oh well as a stupid 12yr old you don't come up with strategies except of click attack button, drink potion, die, repeat..

    (no, leveling up and putting points into dex was not an option.)

    I should have put "cheating" in quotes. It isn't cheating, but it ruins the challenge/fun of the butcher.

    Re: How'd You Kill The Butcher In D1?

    You know what else ruins the fun.... DEATH

    I'm all for keeping my toon alive and I don't even play HC. I hope there's an achievement for that in D3 ;)

    A positive one, I might add!
