    I realize his red lightning is to be avoided now. Yikes. I had to quit for the night and I'll try him again tomorrow. Question - do all the mobs respawn in his sanctum??? I'm assuming the 5 gates are still open when I go back in?

    If you exit the game then everything respawns, though bosspacks vary in number and mods and where they spawn.

    You will have to redo the seals, ya

    Try to get your lightning and fire res as high as possible.

    It actually doesn't do fire damage, but physical and lightning damage. PDR / DR% can help a lot, PDR even more so I guess because it hits every few frames. Shield can also block the physical damage part.

    Also if you want to cheese, I believe the hit box of the lightning hose doesn't hit you if you stand very close to Diablo himself (don't test this in Hardcore! :D).

    Edit:
    Although I guess you're right in having fire resistance helps against Diablo in general considering his other attacks.

    stand in his face it helps a lot (there is a sweet spot where the red lightning wont hurt you! (watch his claw though it might still hurt)

    Sorry, yeah, that is what I meant. Fire damage from his other attacks.

    And yes, standing really close to him helps for the lightning hose attack. It's still frightening at times though.

    The advice of standing really close to him to avoid the hose only works in Nightmare and Hell difficulty. It does NOT work in Normal.

    If this is about a javelin amazon, I would enter melee. It's probably useful to have equipment with a chance to deal crushing blows, like Goblin Toe boots, although that might be a bit unrealistic wehn playing untwinked. It might even be useful to use a weapon other than a spear if it has a bonus to crushing blows.

    Not in normal mode, however. It would be helpful to find out which gesture he makes before he's breathing or spilling fire.

    The lightning hose hurts but so does the firestorm if you are low on fire resist.

    In Normal, I usually prefer to keep a healty distance. I've killed him with things like Fiery Pilum (bought from Jamella) and plain Throw, both with Assassin, Amazon and Paladin. Several repairs needed, but reasonably safe.

    Agree, you've got to keep your space with him in norm, especially on higher /plvl.
