Diablo is a dark fantasy-themed action role-playing game developed by Blizzard North and released by Blizzard Entertainment on November 30, 1996.

Set in the fictional Kingdom of Khanduras (located in the Diablo series), Diablo has the player take control of a lone hero as he or she battles to rid the world of the Lord of Terror. Beneath the town of Tristram, the player journeys through sixteen dungeon levels to battle Diablo himself.

An expansion pack, entitled Diablo: Hellfire, was released in 1997, although it was not created by Blizzard Entertainment. This was followed by a sequel, Diablo II, in 2000, and a third game, Diablo III, was announced on June 28, 2008, at Blizzard's World Wide Invitational in Paris, France.

Duplicate Items

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 inventory!

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 want. 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!

Duplicate items

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 be destroyed.

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 Of Truth. 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 All 10%) "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.

Teliport tip

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.
