- Cow Level
Successfully complete the game to get the Horadaric Cube. Then, obtain "Wert's
Leg" in Tristram (where you go to rescue Deckhard Cain). Go to the northwest part of
the town and search the boy's body. Place both Wert's leg and a Tome of Town Portal in the
Horadaric Cube, and it will open a portal to a hidden level filled with axe carrying cows.
Do not go through the portal until you are over level 35 because the cows are quite
numerous and strong.
- Imbue Without Worry
When you get an item and want to imbue and are worried about the
outcome, copy the "Save" folder from the Diablo 2 folder to the desktop or any
other location. Start your game and imbue. If you do not like what happened, save the game
and exit. You will now be at the main menu again. Press [Alt] + [Tab] and copy the save
folder back to its original location. Then click "Single Player Game" and start.
You have another chance to imbue the item. Repeat this until you get the desired effect.
- Retrieve Items After Death
Save and exit the game after dying. Restart the game, and your
corpse will be in town, allowing you to retrieve your possessions.
- Duplicate Items
Note: This trick only works in an Open Battlenet game, as the
characters need to be saved on your computer. This trick also requires two computers with
two copies of Diablo 2. Get the items to be duplicated. Copy the "Save"
folder from the Diablo 2 folder of that computer and paste it on your desktop. Go
online with both computers and meet in a game. Give the items to be duplicated to the
second computer, then save and exit. Press [Alt] + Tab] on the first computer to switch to
Windows and copy the "Save" folder from your desktop back to its original
location, overwriting its current contents. Return and join the other computer in the
game. You will now have all your original items and the other computer will have a copy of
them. Note: This does not work with the +1 Skill book from Act 2, as you are only
allowed to do it once.
Note: This trick also only works in an Open Battlenet game.
Take the item to be duplicated and place it in your inventory. Then, save and exit the
game. Next, come back to the game or join a different one. Drop the item you want to
duplicate. Make a note of the game name and password, then sign off of your ISP -- do not
save and quit the game. Have another person in the game keep it open while you are logged
off. Sign back on to your ISP, go back into the game, and pick the item that you dropped.
It will also still be in your inventory, so you now have two copies of that item.
