    diablo 2: Bowazon vs. Durial.... can it be done?

    My 23rd lvl Bow / Amazon's progress has come to a SCREACHING HALT because I can't kill Durial at the end of ACT 2. (Blizzard's stupid monster respawning feature is making repeated attempts quite annoying).

    Any ideas??? Statagies??? Similar Headaches???

    c'mon SIN, it sounds like you play Diablo 2 alot..

    Where there's a will there's a way. But if you still can't beat Duriel let me know and I'll send my pally or spear amazon to help

    Thanks for the offer, but I'm solo . (I haven't gone online yet due to my crappy modem connection - DSL won't be available for a couple of more months)

    I've got a lvl 10 Barbarian I'm working on that seems to kick a TREMENDOUS amount of *** compared to the Bowazon. I might play him until he gets to the end of Act2.

    Thanks for the info.

    I beat Diablo around lv 27 with my bowazon. So I must've been around 20-24 when I beat Duriel.

    I think I just picked up my spare pike and jabbed him to death. The 3 hit jab with stun lock really helped with 1 hit kill from Duriel.

    If you insist on beating Duriel with a bow, it's going to be tough. Unless you can run around in that tight space, he'll most likely kill you with 1 hit. And rearming the bowazon is a pain.

    Though this technique sucks, you can always do it with persistance and patience. First thing you must do is make a tp before you go in. Grab a pike, get your two hits in, die, repeat until he's dead. Duriel basically stinks for a Bowazon, you pretty much have to switch to Jabazon solo.

    Yea, I think you guys are right - Got to hang up the bow for this guy.

    G13, when you die, do you Alt-tab out and restart the program to get your body back to the town (will the portal remain?), or do you just make a run for your body?

    Time to look for a good Pike.

    Don't restart, or you'll have to go through the whole thing again. Just try to grab your stuff and get some hits in before you die. Keep in mind these are suicide runs and if you're hardcore um, this is definitely not for you. You may also want to level before you do this because you'll lose XP.

    I suppose another route would be to level and get your decoy, put your decoy in Duriels way and start strafing but that decoy is going to die as soon as you put it up and you will die immediately after. You could do the same thing (tp, 2hits, die, return, tp...) with a bow but it's much harder.

    Again, don't restart or you'll have to fight your way back, then fight Duriel again at full health. Just grab your body, the weapon will be equiped just run up to him, get frozen and get your one or two hits in before you die. This is really last resort but if all else fails it's worth a shot.

    Arm yourself first then go jab. If you play multi on Bnet, you lose all your stuff from rearming.
