Question Who in Diablo 2 do you think is tougher to beat?

Personally, I felt Andariel was the toughest to beat when I was the necromancer. I had to kill her using only level 1 teeth since my minions got wiped out with that poison attack of hers. I killed duriel In only 2 trips to him however and did not die once. (had to teleport out once)

What the hell is up with this bumping stuff. I herd the Quake3 is bumping everything too, you waiting for that?

I played necromancer too and had the same trouble. I think I used curses and bone spear or something to waste them.

I'm not sure what your talking about the bumping and quake3, but bumping is a way to keep your post up so others may view it because a post can easily get lost if 20 others post something around the same time you do. As for bone spear with the necromancer, you don't get that until you are level 18, and you beat (well I did) Andariel around level 11 or 12. Duriel was super easy though, my minions surrounded him and I did also and we just hammered him until he died. Mephisto was surprisingly simple to beat also. For once my blood golem getting stuck was actually useful! The Blood Golem got stuck behind a wall and just sat there and for some reason Mephisto went after him never mind I was standing right behind Mephisto. Mephisto just kept attacking the wall. I kept a slight distance and just kept bone spearing him to death. Andariel was the only one that gave me trouble.

Hmmm I had more problems with Mephisto then Andariel, then again I was using the sorceress. To kill Andariel I just used blaze and ran around the blood pool and she followed like a dumb ai usually does. Had to use some antidote, but I killed her in one trip.
To me the hardest creature for me was that worm thing before entering the tomb of talrasha, since there wasn't much room and sorceress didn't have the punch to put an end to him quick. It turned into a long drawn out fight with me porting constantly.

Oh you mean duriel. Yeah he can be nasty, especially since he can freeze you with his aura.

I'm a druid, and so far I've gotta say that Duriel's not too bad, neither is Andy, but frag I hate Mephisot. And it's not even him alone that bothers me, it's all those other super uniques you have to go through to get to him.

Yeah, the monsters can be a pain, but Mephisto himself isn't too rough.

Duriel was the worst because of his freezing (and he was fast) and the lower level I was at when I faced him.

Duriel is especially difficult since he's the only boss you have to face in a sealed room with no obstacles to use for cover.

Before the patch, Duriel was capable of butchering a player while the screen was still loading up (especially in network games). This was fixed in one of the recent patches, so most players have a fighting chance now.

The best strategy (IMO) is to use distractions. I went up against Duriel (in Nightmare) with my Assassin, and a Druid. I brought my hireling, and of course, my Shadow Master. The Druid brought his own hireling, plus the usual assortment wolves, bears, ravens, and other zoo escapees. It wasn't too hard to nail Duriel with several massively charged kicks while it flailed away at all the minions.

Lol. Durial was tough when I faced him as the paladin, but was surprisingly easy with the necromancer. Also, doesn't that level 30 Fire Golem kick serious ass or what? He can regenerate, has a fire aura around him that damages nearby enemies every 3 seconds, absorbs fire damage which in turn heals him, (say an enemy attacks your fire golem with a fire attack, it will just heal the golem for you ) and, the best feature in my opinion, if the golem dies nearby any monsters he will explode causing MASSIVE damage to all monsters nearby. He will also explode if you summon him over and over. (A useful tactic to summon him and wait for him to get close to monsters then summon him again to force him to explode. Rince and repeat)
