At the beginning of the second act of Diablo 2 you arrive in Lut Gholein, a port city at the foothills of the Aranoch desert. Like the camp of the hunters in the first act, Lut Gholein serves as a base for the rest of the game. The city’s most important NPCs are the blacksmith Fara, the traders Drognan and Lysander, the gambler Elzix and the mercenary leader Greiz. As usual, you will receive quests from the Emir of the city, Jerhyn, the innkeeper Atma and the ever-present Deckard Cain, among others.

1. Act of the 2nd act

Jerhyn welcomes you at the city fountain after your arrival in Lut Gholein. He tells of the horrors that lurk outside the gates in the desert and that haunt the city at night. Evil befell the inhabitants when a lone wanderer passed through the city on his way to the Tomb of Tal Rasha. Your task is to get to the bottom of it.

2. General tips for the 2nd act

◦ The monsters in Act 2 are much stronger than in Act 1. Furthermore, their resistance to attacks increases noticeably. You should therefore stock up on better equipment and weapons during the Radament quest in the city sewers.
◦ The deserts of Aranoch are full of precious items. Make sure you have enough city portal scrolls with you to be able to sell the items quickly in the city.
◦ With the Horadic Cube you will receive during your adventures in Act 2, you can, among other things, upgrade your previously hoarded gems and use them in socketed armor and weapons.

4. Single monsters of the 2nd act

In addition to champion monsters, the unique monsters, including act and quest bosses, are a great place to go when it comes to the best items in the game. Below you will find those of the 2nd act.

Note: The monster enchantments listed here are basic abilities, with additional abilities added depending on the difficulty level of the game (Normal, Nightmare, Hell). Furthermore, all of the above-mentioned resistances in the difficulty level Hell become immunities, e.g. Lightning Resistant -> Immune to Lightning Attacks.
