Revisiting Diablo 1 Playthrough Part 6 – Going Caving

Diablo 1 cave levels beckon in this episode which means new monsters and new a new tileset. The Catacombs took longer than we’d expected but the dank stink of the caves was a breath of fresh air after the waves of goatmen.

Watch Elly and Rush revisit Diablo 1 Twenty Years On – Part 1

With the recent launch of PureDiablo, Rush and I decided that 20 years was a long enough gap for playing Diablo 1 and we should venture back into the depths. Neither of us have played it in all that time so going back was a little like playing it for the first time. It’s amazing how much you forget about the dungeons, monsters, items, and how the game mechanics functioned. Watch us revisit the game in this multipart series.

Diablo 1 Guide: Tackling Diablo

Diablo is the end boss of Diablo and Hellfire, and must be killed to earn “dots” of rank on Battle.net. In multiplayer he isn’t worth more experience than a regular monster, and doesn’t drop special items, but he’s still fun to kill for the challenge of it.
