Despite that this page describes Duriel as a difficult boss, it's actually a pretty easy and manageable battle on Normal (albeit not the same on Nightmare and Hell). move, then cast bone spear until the prison breaks. Make sure you can cast Iron Maiden in a split second with near perfect precision - practice with using it on your Blood Golem in your battles in the Tomb of Tal Rasha until you can do it effectively. Dury isnt a big issue, you just have to realize you need to reload your Skellies. Yeah, I agree with Mouse. Practice summoning a new Blood Golem and then casting Iron Maiden right next to it in the same second; get a new mouse if your old one is unreliable; this will come in very useful in the boss battle. Share. Even a shield that states 28% Chance to Block really only has around 7% chance to block and so isn't very useful either (the key is to stay out of harm's way).

The cold damage is irrelevant; however, slowing Duriel is going to be useful considering how fast it is. Duriel has a LOT of life, and has good Defense (avoids your attacks well), so you'll need to hit it hard and hit it a lot of times. just clay-golem him to death :) (he will kill himself - ezy pzy), but clay golem has basically no damage and also dies rather quickly, easiest way would be golem + iron maiden.

A Necromancer with at least some summons (and a golem) is perfectly capable of going through Acts I and II without spending a single stat point in the process, since summons are effectively extra life points, are very cheap compared to how much damage they can do, and make it unnecessary for you to get better weaponry and armor.
