Simple pleasures Since ver. 1.10, I've had a lot of trouble with Normal Duriel. I've managed to die at least once with most of my characters (exception would be my Fire Druid, but I was making trips to town every few seconds). Even using a Barb with decent cold resists and Battle Orders, Duriel would still cut through me like a hot knife through butter. Then along came my latest pride and joy, Delianna (offline version). I had made it to level 24, and I had a few points into CS by that time. I entered Duriel's chamber, and with luck on my side, my merc positioned himself at a 90% angle from me. Duriel went after him first. Before my merc died, I had Duriel under a 1/4 life...something I've never done before. Duriel scored one hit on me before I dissolved him into a sizzling mound of electrified goo. It's not a great achievement, but it sure felt good after all the trouble he's given me. So far, she's died once, to Meph, and it was my own stupid mistake that got her killed. I thought she had enough life, LR, and CR to tank him, but apparently not since his Frozen Orb cut through me faster than I could kill Duriel.
