Diablo 2 Resurrected Andariel is the first major boss fight you'll encounter in the game. Andariel is one of the five major demons you must defeat and the first act's finale. She's also a tremendous challenge if you aren't prepared. Fortunately, you will be. Our Diablo 2 Resurrected Andariel guide has the best tips for taking down the force of darkness and what you'll get for your trouble.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Andariel | Where to Find Andariel

Andariel's pretty difficult to miss, since defeating her is part of the main storyline. She's in the Monastery catacombs, which are under the Monastery barracks and a bit tricky to find if you're new to the Diablo 2 world. Keep wending your way ever downward, activating waypoints as you go.

If you're an Amazon or Sorceress with fire skills, you've given yourself a significant advantage over this boss. Fire is Andariel's only weakness. If not, make sure you bring plenty of restorative items. Andariel is a major demon for a reason.

Her close-range attacks are deadly, but it's Andariel's poison attacks you'll need to watch closely. These are ranged and can quickly decimate you and your retainers if you aren't careful.

Before even dealing with Andariel, though, make sure you take out her minions. Shamans will summon an endless army of foes if you don't, and Andariel herself is tough enough without having dozens of minor pests to deal with as well.

One strategy is to have your retainer distract Andariel while you attack, but even still, plan on this fight taking at least two tries or more. Fortunately, unless you log out, Diablo 2 bosses don't regenerate health. Strike a balance between aggressive play and conserving your valuable items, and you'll eventually find success.
