What's your favorite D2 and D3 Boss Fight?(1)Category: GeneralApril-20-2016 2:23 PM PDT (6 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
In Diablo II my favorite boss fight would have to be vs the Ancients. Fighting 3 Barbarians at the same time that use the same skills as a Barbarian player, each being Immune to Lightning, Fire, or Cold and sometimes even Immune to two elements made it both challenging and rememberable! Even with my now decked out pure Blizzard Sorceress, I still sometimes pop in to Hell difficulty "Ancients Plz Help" games to fight them for fun.

In Diablo III, I have to say my favorite boss would be Belial... I honestly didn't like the whole child emperor you find in a sewer being the lord of lies, as it was extremely obvious, but when it came to the actual boss fight, I really felt like it was how a boss fight should happen. You fight the little minions first, and then the first form weak Belial which gives the impression that this will be an easy fight. You knock him to low enough HP and he transformed into a gigantic and imposing-I-will-crush-you Belial. It also helps that I played vs him after a few months from when D3 first came out... and he was extremely difficult then! I still remember the enraged timers and he would obliterate everyone in the area if you didn't kill him fast enough.

I love topics like these. Memory lane, here we go!

I think for Diablo II, I'm partial to Andariel, likely because she sets the stage for what you're really getting yourself into. Or maybe it's because I have a tendency to restart my games when something isn't working out, so maybe I've seen her more than the average individual. :P She kind of became my cut off point for "is this working?" Early enough to not lose too much, but late enough to get a sense of what was or wasn't up to snuff.

For Diablo III, it's a toss up between Belial and Malthael. Mechanically, the first time I encountered each, they made me think very strategically and plan out my movements and tactics. With time, experience, and gear, they're both very different encounters now, but I'll never forget the day one failures building up to a great sense of accomplishment on success! Sometimes, in a new Season I'll bump up Torment difficulties before I'm actually ready just for a similar sense of challenge.

Hard to choose...

For D2 I'll never forget that first attempt with a summon Necro to take down Diablo and watching all my skeletons just melt away from the first fire stomp. Finally figuring out the right strategy was a serious sense of satisfaction.

For D3, the Belial fight is awesome, especially if you've played it on console. His crazy monster phase is just too cool.
