1. GENERAL INFORMATION
============================================================================================

  1.1 Guide Information
  ---------------------

This is the text version of the the Diablo 2 guide (a HTML will be made available once the 
text verson is finsihed) made by Tim Wuyts.  

The author is the webmaster of  The Cheat Empire (http://home.planetinternet.be/~twuyts), 
where you can find the latest cheats & walkthroughs for PC Games. Including the latest 
version of this guide.

Since Diablo 2 is an extensive game, don't expect that the first versions of this guide will 
cover every little detail about the game.  Hell, I even think I could be updating this guide 
5 years from now.  Any additional information is always welcome, so if you find a unique 
item, shrine, ... I haven't mentioned yet: just let me know and I'll make the proper 
adjustments.  The first versions of the guide will contain more info on the Paladin than on 
other characters, this is because I started playin with the Paladin and thus have more 
information about him.


  1.2 Update Information
  ----------------------

(July 25th 2000) Version 0.10:
  - The first version of what's going to be an extensive guide


  1.3 Introduction
  ----------------

Nobody will argue with me that a lot of people were waiting for the release of this game.  
And yes ... finally the programmers at Blizzard blessed us with the arrival of their new 
baby, Diablo 2 - their way of making earth a little bit more like heaven.  Everybody, 
including me, was eager to get their hands on a copy of D2 once it hit the stores.

The first question that comes to mind is whether D2 lives up to the expectations.  At first I 
must admit that I found the 640x480 resolution rather dissapointing, but after a while you 
hardly even notice it any more.  The gameplay causes you to forget the graphics (not that 
they are terrible, but a higher resolution would have been nice - but I guess that's 
something for Diablo 3) and sucks you completely into the game.  This is rather strange, 
since it's merely a hack & slash game come to think of it.  This proves that good games don't 
need to be complicated.

Overall the game does live up to it's expectations, making this a game you'll grab back to 
for a long period of time.

  2.4  Paladin
  ------------

The paladin is a good overall character.  He can stand his ground when it comes to melee 
combat and can use his aura spells to enhance his attacks/defence.  These are the starting 
stats of the Paladin:

Strength  : 25   -   Attack Damage : 2-8
Dexterity : 20   -   Attack Rating : 52
                     Defense       : 9
Vitality  : 25   -   Stamina       : 89
                     Life          : 55
Energy    : 15   -   Mana          : 15


Skill 1 : Defensive Aura
Skill 2 : Offensive Aura
Skill 3 : Combat Skills


     2.4.1 Skills
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
    
The skills of a paladin can be divided into 3 types: combat skills, Defensive Auras and 
Offensive Auras.  The auras are very usefull when you are playing in parties (eg. 
multiplayer), since they affect all members in your party which are in range.  This gives 
them the same bonuses you get.

A general tip I can give you (since I've been playing with the Paladin for quite some time 
now) is not to spend too much skill points in the skills made available to you in the early 
stages of character development.  Take "might" for example: I used to develop this skill a 
lot in the beginning of the game - hell, who doesn't want to do xx% additional damage.  
However, later in the game the conviction skill became available and it soon became clear 
that by developing this skill you could develop your damage increase even faster, easily 
surpassing the level of might.  It's better to save those precious skill points until 
conviction becomes available than it is to spend them all on might in the early stages.  Off 
course, this is only a suggestion.

  2.5  Sorceress
  --------------

Our little female user of elementals is pretty frail.  Her spells allow her to destroy 
enemies from afar.  A good and balanced choice of skills are important when you are playing 
with this character.  Just keep in mind that: Fire spells exist to do extensive damage, 
Lightning spells exist to attack multiple targets, Cold Spells facilitate combat (because of 
the freeze effect).  These are general rules, eg. I never said that cold/lightning spells 
can't do extensive damage.  Anyway, her stats are:

Strength  : 10   -   Attack Damage : 1-5
Dexterity : 25   -   Attack Rating : 72
                     Defense       : 6
Vitality  : 10   -   Stamina       : 74
                     Life          : 40
Energy    : 35   -   Mana          : 35

+1 Dexterity = +4 Attack Rating
+1 Energy    = 
+1 Vitality  = +1 Stamina
               +1 Life

Skill 1 : Fire Spells
Skill 2 : Lightning Spells
Skill 3 : Cold Spells

3. WEAPONRY, ARMOR & OTHER ITEMS
============================================================================================

Let me start off by saying that the attack speeds are not correct for all characters. In the 
beginning I was playing with the Paladin, later on with the Sorceress, ... so frankly, I 
don't remember which items have the attack speed of which character.  I hope I can find a way 
to correct this negligence of me.


  3.1 Regular Items
  -----------------

Let's start off with an overview of the regular (non-enchanted) weaponry.  I've divided the 
items in 2 categories: weapons and armor, each subdivided in several other classes for easy 
reference.  The different weapons and armor are ordered alphabetically.

Note that among the regular items, those found in the nightmare/hell levels are also included 
(usu. they have a specific Character Level requirement).  They look just like the items found 
in the normal levels, but have different names and stats.

  3.2 Socketed Items
  ------------------

Socketed items are exactly the same as normal items, but with sockets in them.  This allows 
you to insert gems or skulls in order to add magical properties to your items.  There are 5 
grades of gems: chipped, flawed, standard, flawless and perfect.  Needless to say, the 
perfect gems have the greatest magical effect of all.  You have to keep in mind that once you 
inserted a gem, it can't be removed out of the weapon, shield or helmet.  Here's an overview 
of the different type of gems:


   AMETHYST - Purple

* Weapon properties : Adds to attack rating
* Shield properties : Adds to shield and defense rating
* Helm properties   : Adds to strength


   DIAMOND - White

* Weapon properties : Adds damage vs. the undead
* Shield properties : Adds to all resistances
* Helm properties   : Adds to attack rating


   EMERALD - Green

* Weapon properties : Adds poison damage to attack
* Shield properties : Adds resistance to poison
* Helm properties   : Adds to dexterity


   RUBY - Red

* Weapon properties : Adds fire damage to attack
* Shield properties : Adds resistance to fire
* Helm properties   : Adds to maximum life


   SAPPHIRE - Blue

* Weapon properties : Adds cold damage to attack
* Shield properties : Adds resistance to cold
* Helm properties   : Adds maximum mana


   SKULL - White

* Weapon properties : Adds mana and life steal to attack
* Shield properties : Adds attacker takes damage
* Helm properties   : Adds mana and life regeneration


   TOPAZ - Yellow

* Weapon properties : Adds lightning damage to attack
* Shield properties : Adds resistance to lightning
* Helm properties   : Adds to chance to find magic items



  3.3 Magical Items
  -----------------

You can derive from the name which magical properties your armour, weapons, ... have.  All is 
determined by a set of prefixes and suffixes.  You can find a list of prefixes and suffixes 
ordered by type of magical property (so all suffixes which affect eg. requirements are found 
in the same place).

     6.1.2 NPCs
     ~~~~~~~~~~

   AKARA - High Priestess of the Rogue Sisters
Once you completed her mission, you'll get reductions on all the stuff that is sold in the 
camp.  She is important since she:
     * Replenished mana & life
     * Sells all kinds of potions
     * Sells scrolls
     * Sells wands, scepters & staves

   CHARSI - Blacksmith of the Rogue Sisters
A very important character if you are a melee fighter.  She:
     * Repairs weapons & armor
     * Sells weapons & armor

   DECKARD CAIN - Horadrim Sage
Cain will aid & assist you throughout the entire game.  He's the last of the Horadrim, this

     * Identifies items for free

   FLAVIE - Rogue
She won't let you pass to specific areas of the map until you completed the first quest (Den 
of Evil).  After that she just warns you, but she doesn't play a big role in the game.

   GHEED - Merchant
He does have some nice merchandise, but usually he's also more expensive than the other 
characters in the camp.  He:
     * Allows you to gamble
     * Sells weapons & armor
     * Sells other items (like keys)

   KASHYA - Military Leader of the Rogue Sisters
She doesn't like strangers very much, so you must complete a mission for her before she will 
aid you in your quests:
     * Hire Rogues

   WARRIV - Caravan
He will give you an introduction in the beginning of the game, but isn't really needed until 
the end of Act I.  Once you completed all the quests he will transport you to Lut Gholein

She's the person that gives you the first mission in Lut Gholein.  After you have completed 
it, she arranges a discount with all the merchants in Lut Gholein.

     * Sells scrolls
     * Sells wands, scepters & staves

   ELZIX - Ex-Bandit
He does have some nice merchandise and replaces Gheed of Act I:
     * Allows you to gamble

He is a useless character in the game.  Doesn't do or say anything of importance.  I dare 
you, give it a shot.

   GREIZ - Mercenary Leader
He's hired by Jerhyn to protect the city.  Since he's a mercenary leader, you can:
     * Hire Mercenaries (pretty logical huh?!)

   JERHYN - Mayor of Lut Gholein
He welcomes you in Act II and is the owner of the demon infested palace (mmm, what a 
spoiler).  You'll talk to him from time to time and he also burden you with the cleansing of 
the palace later on in this act.

   KAELEN - Guard
Kaelen he just guards the palace entrance until Jerhyn grants you permission to enter.

still have that imbuement of Charsi).

     6.3.2 NPCs
     ~~~~~~~~~~

   ASHEARA - Mercenary Leader
She's the leader of the mage & warrior clan that lives in Kurast.  It's only natural that she 
allows you to:
     * Hire Mercenaries
     * Sells weapons & armor

   ALKOR - Alchemist

     * Allows you to gamble

With his magical abilities he creates and enchants weapons.  Naturally he:
     * Repairs weapons & armor

   NATALYA - Huntress of Evil

come and see her for advice, but I found her ramblings hardly useful.

   ORMUS - Old mage
Ormus was a once powerful, but now old mage.  He still is the most important character for 
magic users and he does play a part in some missions:
     * Restores Mana & Life

in the River of Flame, close to the entrance of Diablo's Sanctuary.  He will tell you more 
about the 5 seals.

   HALBU - Shopkeeper in Heaven's Gates
He seems to be some kind of retired warrior who became a shopkeeper.  Anyway he:
     * Repairs weapons & armor
     * Sells weapons & armor

   JAMELLA - Shopkeeper in Heaven's Gates
She seems to be the female version of Halbu.  She doesn't own a shop for melee fighter 
though:
     * Sells all kinds of potions
     * Sells scrolls
     * Sells wands, scepters & staves

   TYRAEL - The Archangel
He will give you the mission of the Fallen Angel, but isn't that important.

     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


============================================================================================
7. MISSIONS
============================================================================================

An overview of all the missions of the game.  Not too detailed though, most missions are 
pretty straightforward and you'll complete them after some intense hacking & slashing.  This 
is just an overview of where you can obtain certain special items in order to complete  the 
quest.

One important thing to remember in diablo 2 is that corners are your friends.  Some of the 
characters get stuck behind corners (esp. if they use ranged weapons).  Only now and then one 
of the monsters turns around the corner, which obviously makes an easy kill.  Also keep in 
mind that the AI is scripted to follow a parallel path with you.  This means that if a 
monster is in a building, you have to walk past (or nearby) to the exit in order for it to 
exit the building.  This doesn't always work, if the door is on the wall closest to you, 
monsters tend to escape easier.  This doesn't work with monsters that use a hit and run 
tactic (like the flayers in act 3), I'm taling about the bigger monsters here like venom 
lords or the damned.

Also try to avoid getting surrounded.  This can be deadly, even with the Paladin's Zeal 
attack.


  7.1 Act I: The Western Kingdoms
  -------------------------------

     7.1.1 Den of Evil
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Clear the Den of Evil
Reward : Skill Point

This first mission is given by Akara in the camp.  First you have to find the Den, which 
usually isn't too far off the camp.  Once you find it: kill all the monsters inside (color of 
the cave will change when quest is completed) and head back to Akara.  She will grant you a 
skill of choice.


     7.1.2 Sisters' Burial Ground
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Kill Blood Raven
Reward : Mercenary

Kashya asks you to look for Blood Raven in the Burial Grounds (next to the Cold Plains) and 
kill her.  Blood Raven is a corrupted Rogue who raises the dead.

Once you arrive at the Burial Ground, stay at a distance and lure all the undead creatures 
(skeletons & zombies) away from her.  Once they are dead, you can start your hunt for Blood 
Raven.  Once she is finished, head back to Kashya and she will give you a rogue which 
accompanies you in your future quests.


     7.1.3 The Search for Cain
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Find Cain
Reward : Cain - Identifies Items for free, Akara - Item

The search for Cain (a mission given to you by Akara) is a more complex mission than the 
previous two.  You'll have to do a series of things before you can reach Tristram, where Cain 
is being held captive.

First you have to reach Dark Wood (through the Underground Passage) and search for the Tree 
of Inifuss to recover a scroll.  Once you have the scroll of Inifuss, take it to Akara to 
interpret it.  Once Akara has interpreted the scroll, read it yourself and head for the Cairn 
Stones (you must have passed it by now - it looks a bit like Stonehenge).  Press the 
monolith's in the correct order and a portal to Tristram will be opened.

Tristram is a though town at first, but with a bit of running and good tactics it shouldn't 
be that hard.  The only character to whatch out for is Griswold, the old Blacksmith of 
Tristram.  He takes little damage and does have a nasty punch.  Once he's out of the picture 
the way to Deckard Cain is free.  He's hanging in a gibbet in the middle of town.  He'll 
escape through a town portal once you set him free.

Now head back to the rogue encampment and talk to Akara, she will give you an item as a 
reward (a ring in my case).  Then talk to Cain, he'll grant you free ID of items for the rest 
of the game.

Note: You can also find Wirt's leg in Tristram - which you need in order to open the secret 
Cow level


     7.1.4 The Forgotten Tower
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Kill the Countess
Reward : Items dropped by the Countess (+chests)

This quest is activated once you read the Moldy Tome, which tells the tale of a bloodthirsty 
Countess.  You have got to find the Forgotten Tower in the Black Marsh (beyond Dark Wood) and 
kill the Countess.  Once you find it, descent in the cellars below the ruins of the Tower.  
On level 5 you'll find the Countess, she is not so hard to defeat.  All you have to do is 
lure the minions out of her chamber first then go in and take her out as fast as possible (I 
said she isn't hard to defeat, but she can be harmful).

Once she's dead, the chests in her chambers will offer you a bunch of magical items and loads 
of gold.


     7.1.5 Tools of the Trade
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Find the Horadric Malus
Reward : Charsi will imbue an item with magical properties

Just past the Outer Cloister lie the Barracks.  In here you'll encounter the smith.  He's 
strong, but ranged fighters should't fear him.  If you are a melee fighter, I suggest hit & 
run tactics or you'll be squished like a bug.  In the room the smith came out of lies the 
Horadric Malus.  This also means that you don't have to kill the smith in order to obtain it, 
so if you can't beat him (or simply don't want to fight him) just run in-and-out of the room 
(eeeuhm, don't forget to pick up the Horadric Malus off course).

When you head back to Charsi, she'll imbue an item for you.  This doesn't have to be done 
immediatly, you can even travel back from other acts with items to let her imbue them.  Just 
make sure you pick a good item (something you can use, with some power).


     7.1.6 Sisters to the Slaughter
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Destroy Andariel
Reward : Items left behind

The first time I met Andariel, I was afraid that she would kick my butt, but frankly, she's 
quite easy to defeat with any character.  If possible, try to use a weapon that does fire 
damage, since she's pretty vulnerable to fire.  If you are a playing with the sorceress 
however, DON'T use fire - Andariel is fast and her poison attack can be quite lethal for a 
sorceress.  Try to use a spell like Ice Blast, that way Andariel slows down a lot and you 
still do a lot of damage.

Once she is defeated, pick up the items (don't forget the main chamber she came out of!).  
Then head back to the village, talk to everyone, do what you have to do and head east to Lut 
Gholein.


  7.2 Act II: The Great Deserts of Aranoch
  ----------------------------------------

     7.2.1 Radament's Lair
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Kill the monster in the city sewers (Radament)
Reward : Discount from the merchants in Lut Gholein

This is your first mission in Lut Gholein and it is given to you by Atma, the tavernkeeper.  
She wants you to kill the Horadric mummy Radament.  Once she has given the mission, just head 
into the sewers for some hack & slash.  You'll find Radament in the lowest level of the 
sewers.

Once you defeated him, pick up all the items he left behind.  Also make sure you don't forget 
the Horadric Scroll (in the chest).  Head back to Lut Gholein and talk to Atma.



     7.2.2 The Horadric Staff
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Find all the pieces to create the Horadric Staff
Reward : -

After you've picked up the Horadric Scroll in Radament's Lair, this mission will be 
activated.  First show the scroll to Cain, he'll explain the mission to you.  Your objectives 
are to reconstruct a Horadric Staff by:
 * Retrieving a Horadric Cube (Halls of the Dead - Under Dry Hills)
 * Retrieving a Shaft (Maggot Lair - Under the Oasis)
 * Retrieving a Headpiece (Claw Viper Temple)

Once you retrieve all of them, you can combine the shaft and the headpiece with the Horadric 
Cube, so that a Horadric Staff will be formed.  All you have to do now is find Tal Rasha's 
Tomb and place the Staff in the Orifice.


     7.2.3 Tainted Sun
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Lift the shadow of darkness by destroying the Tainted Sun Altar
Reward : -

Destroy the Altar in the Claw Viper Temple (is also needed in order to obtain the Horadric 
Headpiece).


     7.2.4 Arcane Sanctuary
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Find Horazon's Journal
Reward : -

After you've talked to Cain (after the completion of the Horadric Staff).  Go and talk to 
Drognan, who will tell you about a place called the Arcane Sanctuary.  He will also order you 
to talk to Jerhyn.  Once you talked to Jerhyn, you'll have access to the Palace so that you 
can reach the Sanctuary.  In order to reach it you have to walk into the portal which is 
located in the Palace cellars.

In the sanctuary all you have to do is find the Journal, but beware: it is guarded by the 
Summoner.


     7.2.5 The Summoner
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Destroy the Summoner in the Arcane Sanctuary
Reward : -

This mission is activated once you encounter The Summoner.  He's like the "main man" in the 
Arcane Sanctuary.  You have to defeat him in order to read Horazon's Journal.


     7.2.6 The Seven Tombs
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Find the tomb of Tal Rasha
Reward : 

After you've spoken to Jerhyn (Atma will tell you to do so after the first mission), go talk 
to Drognan for more specific details about this mission.  In short you have to find the Tal 
Rasha's symbol, so that you enter the right tomb.  The symbol can be found in the Arcana 
Sanctuary, but since this mission is only available at the end of Act II, you can't complete 
this mission in the beginning in of the game (I wonder why Blizzard put the beginning of this 
mission so early in Act II).

Once you have read Horazon's Journal in the Arcana Sanctuary, you also know which symbol is 
that of Tal Rasha.  All you have to do now is find the correct temple in the Canyon of the 
Magi (look at the symbols outside the temples).

In the tomb you have to open a secret passage by placing the Horadric Staff into the Orifice.  
Now it's time to gear up, inside you'll find Duriel, one of the lesser Evils.  He's much 
harder to defeat than Andariel.  You shouldn't have too much trouble if you're a well 
equipped melee fighter with some nice stock of health potions.  Magic users don't have it 
easy against him, you're confined to a small room (which you can flee if you want too).  Once 
Duriel is defeated, search the tomb, you'll meet Tyrael, the Archangel.



  7.3 Act III: Kehjistan and Kurast
  ---------------------------------

     7.3.1 The Golden Bird
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : -
Reward : Potion of Life

I think the boys at Blizzard where kinda out of ideas when they came up with this mission: it 
has nothing to do with the story line, nor does anyone give you this mission.  All you have 
to do is retrieve "A Jade Figurine" when you are battling your way through the jungle.  Once 
you have it head back to the camp and talk to Cain.  He'll tell you to talk to Meshif, who 
will give you a Golden Bird in return.

Ask Cain about the Golden Bird and he'll send you to Alkor, the Alchemist.  Talk to him twice 
and you have the potion of Life.  All you have to do now is drink it!


     7.3.2 Blade of the Old Religion
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Find the Blade to restore the magical barrier around the town
Reward : Rare ring/amulet

This mission is given to you by Hratli once he's back in his forge (back from greeting you at 
the docks).  He wants you to find a special dagger called the Gidbinn in order to re-enforce 
the protective barrier around the docks.

You'll find the dagger in a village of the Fetish (the only village actually, the rest are 
all ruins, so you can't really miss it).  Just hit the special altar (watch out, a bunch of 
Fetish dudes will suddenly attack you in the back).  Once you killed the unique Fetish that 
attacks you, he'll drop the Gibdinn.

Now return the Gibdinn to Ormus, he'll give you a rare ring/amulet in return.


     7.3.3 Khalim's Will
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Find the eye, heart, brains and flail of Khalim
Reward : -

Cain will tell you that in order to defeat Mephisto, you need to destroy a special orb.  In 
order to do so, you need a special flail (transmuted with the Horadric Cube).  You need to 
collect the Brain, Eye, Hearth and Flail of Khalim, a former High Priest of the Zakarum.

You can find the Eye in the Spiders Cave, the brain in the Flayer Dungeon, the hearth in the 
sewers under Kurast Bazaar and the Flail ...

  7.4 Act IV: Gateway to Hell
  ---------------------------

     7.4.1 The Fallen Angel
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Free the spirit of Izual
Reward : 2 Skill points

Tyrael will give you a mission to release the tormented spirit of a fallen angel called 
Izual.  You can find him in the Plains of Despair and he's usually surrounded by quite a lot 
of monsters.  The first thing to do is to lure the lesser monsters away, so you can finish 
them off.  Then deal with Izual ... he shouldn't pose a big problem without his minions 
surrounding him.

After you kill him, go and have a talk wity Tyrael again ... he will grant you 2 skill points 
for you to distribute.


     7.4.2 Hell's Forge
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Destroy Mephisto's Soul stone
Reward : -

You already should have gotten the soul stone at the end of Act 3 (when you destroyed 
Mephisto).

You also need the hell forge hammer.  You can get it by defeating the hell smith (Hephasto).  
He's pretty strong, do don't hesitate to take a run if you are low on health.  Once he's 
defeated, all you have to do is pick it up.

If you have the above items, you still need to reach the forge.  It's somewhere in the river 
of flames.  Usually the forge isn't to far of the place where you killed the smith (makes 
sense, doesn't it).

Once you've found it all you have to do is: place the soulstone on it, equip yourself with 
the hammer and hit the forge.


     7.4.3 Terror's End
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Goal   : Destroy Diablo himself
Reward : -

Fight your way through the river of flame to his sanctuary.  Once you enter it, make sure you 
never get surrounded by a bunch of demons or they will walk right over you sooner or later.

In the sanctuary you have to activate the seals Hadriel spoke about.  But be careful, once 
you activate a seal a large amount of monsters usually appears right behind you.  It's 
important that you make sure you can take on a large amount of monsters or that you plan a 
pre-emptive escape route (read town portal).

Once the seals are all activated the lord of terror appears with a little rumble.  In 
comparison to Diablo I, our main mean boss IS dangerous (and huge too for that matter).  He 
is hard to hit, can take large amounts of damage and his spells can do some serious damage 
(in my case the chain lighting did high amounts of damage).  I employed a hit and run tactic, 
but even then you'll end up buying a lot of potions in the town.  The best way to deal with 
diablo is to walk in circles around him, that way his lightning will always miss you.  Also, 
once you hit him don't run away from him in a straight line.  This could get you caught in 
his lightning, usually resulting in dead.  If your character has a good dexterity rating, try 
to hit him from a distance.  Once you destroyed diablo, you have 90 seconds to gather items 
he might have dropped and then enjoy the epilogue.

You will be granted a title once you defeated Diablo.
