Go to the kid with lots of gold and buy the item if you dont want it reload and
you will have a new item every time. But for that make sure you BUY BEFORE
Submitted by: Greg
Go to the witch and save your game.Then load and keep on repeating than click on
the witch and go to buy item and you with have better items.
Note: VARY hard to do!
This allows the player to duplicate any item of their choice. All you need is
the item you want to duplicate and any belt item.
Put the item you want to duplicate on the ground Walk away from it but keep it
on the screen Click on the item (this should make you walk back towards it).
At the exact same time you pick it up, click on a belt item. (You should have
picked up the item anyway.)
Open your inventory
Put the belt item in an empty space in your inventory. If done correctly, your
belt item should become the item you wanted to duplicate once in the inventory.
Phantom Duplication Trick
Note: This trick will work with any item you can place in your belt (potions &
scrolls) but the duplicate items are phantoms and will only exist in your
To perform this cheat you need to have all 8 slots on your belt filled. You
also need 9 items you can drop, as well as the item you want to duplicate.
Find a location that has an open space at least 4x4 in size and stand in the
middle of it. Drop 9 items from your main inventory. This will create a square
of 8 items around you with you in the middle standing on the 9th item.
Return to your inventory screen and replace one of the items in your belt with
the item you want to duplicate. When you've done that, highlight the item in
your belt that you want to duplicate, press the X button, then press the
triangle button. You'll be returned to the game screen and a duplicate of the
item you highlighted on your inventory screen will drop outside the square of
items. Go pick up this item and return to the middle of the square of dropped
items and repeat the process until you have duplicated as many items as you
IMPORTANT: The item you want to duplicate MUST be in your belt, not your main
inventory, for this trick to work.
The items you create using this trick will work just like the real thing and
they will sell for the same price as the real thing, but if you attempt to
drop the duplicate it will vanish! Also, if you attempt to save your game with
a phantom object in your inventory, you'll get an error and could possibly lose
your previously saved game as well, so be forewarned.
The best way to take advantage of this cheat is to use the duplicated items
immediately. For example: dup an Identify scroll to identify an item and save
the 100 gold piece fee; dup Strength, Magic, Dexterity, Vitality or Spectral
Elixirs and immediately use them to boost your stats; dup that *Rare* and
expensive scroll to make some quick cash!

After completing the game online, hold [Alt] and press [Tab] to skip the ending
Place an item in your belt. Take the item to be duplicated drop it on the ground.
Walk away, then click on the item again. As you pick the item up, click the Left
Mouse Button on an item in your belt immediately before taking the item on the
ground. If timed correctly, the name of the item that was duplicated will appear
in the box down below. It will have the same appearance as the item on the belt
that was clicked on. Drop the item on the ground or place it in the back pack
and it will re-appear correctly. However, do not create a second item of the
same type and put both on the ground. If this is done, the duplicate item will
Customize hot key messages:
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the
file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "diablo.ini" file in the
game folder. It contains the hot key messages that can be changed.
Keep more items:
In the town square by Cain the Elder, drop an item on the ground that you wish
to keep out of your inventory but do not want to get rid of. Then, immediately
save the game. The item will be in the town square until you pick it back up.
After starting a new or saved game play until your character gets to a level
status that you want. Save the game and click "New game" Click on your character,
then click "OK". When the screen appears again, do not click on "Load Game".
Instead, click on "New game" to start with all your stats and items intact from
the previous game.
Killing groups of monsters:
Get the Fire Wall spell from the Adrea the witch. Make two walls of fire wall,
side by side. Run away in the opposite direction of the monsters. If positioned
correctly, they will run through the fire walls and be killed.
Defeating hordes of monsters:
If you are facing a horde of monsters that you do not want to crowd around you,
get on the side of a doorway opposite the monsters and stand directly in front
of it. By doing this, only one enemy at a time can attack you and you do not
have to worry about being overrun.
Potion in ring slot:
Start a new game. Make sure the water in the well Cain is standing next to is
dirty. Then, go down to the second level and complete the Poisoned Water Supply
quest. Talk to Peppin. He will give you the Ring Of Truth. Save the game, bring
up the menu, and select "New Game". Click on the name of your character and
select "New Game". Again, make sure the water in the well is dirty. If it is
not, keep starting new games until it is. Go down to the second level and
complete the quest again. Peppin will give you another Ring Of Truth. Put both
rings on, save the game, and start another new game. Open your inventory. You
should still be wearing one Ring Of Truth but in the place of the other one
should be a Rare Bottle Of Mana. The bottle has all the statistics of the Ring
Note : If you take the potion out of the ring slot, you will not be able to
put it back on.
Duplicate large items:
Put the item to be duplicated on the ground. Put a mana potion or another item
on your belt. Walk a few steps away, then click on the item on the ground.
Right when you pick it up, click on the item placed on your belt. Drop it
on the ground. If timed correctly, it should turn into the item to be duplicated,
and the original one will be in your inventory. This also works with money. Do
not put both the duplicated item and the original item on the ground,or one will
disappear. Note: This cheat will not work if the inventory window is open.
Tristram's Water Supply:
"Reward: Ring of Truth (+10 to Hit Points, Absorbs 1 point damage per hit, Resist
"Tip: Regardless of character class, a good tactic for this quest is moving forward
and then walking back, drawing a few creatures in at a time to avoid fighting too
many monsters simultaneously.
Before you go into a big fight, with a boss, open a teliport back to town so when
you die you dont have to walk all the way back to that boss.
Defeating the Butcher:
Find the Butcher. Open his door and run away from him. He should follow you. Lead
him to a staircase and run around it, but stay close to it. He should follow you in
circles around the it. Eventually, after about thirty seconds to a minute, he should
get stuck in the staircase. From there, shoot him with magic or a bow. You should
also be able to melee attack him. Note: He can get away from it if you go onto the
side of the staircase that you need to be on if you were to enter it.
Killing groups of monsters:
Get the Fire Wall spell from the Adrea the witch. Make two walls of fire wall, side
by side. Run away in the opposite direction of the monsters. If positioned correctly,
they will run through the fire walls and be killed.
Defeating Zhar The Mad:
Walk towards a corner. He will follow and appear in front of you. Trap him in the
corner. Hit him every time he appears, since he will be still trapped in the corner.
If done correctly, you should not use any energy.
