Area Level Changes in Diablo 2 Resurrected Patch 2.4

Area Level Changes in Diablo 2 Resurrected Patch 2.4

 

Area Level is a very important factor in Magic Finding, as it determines what item types can be found. Every Area in Diablo 2 has a fixed monster level. Champion and Unique monsters in an area receive +2 and +3 levels compared to the area’s monster level, while Superunique Bosses have their individual level.


Item base types have a fixed “treasure class”, which could also be defined as the minimum monster level that can drop a base type. Many of the top unique items have a base type that can only drop from high level monsters. The following unique items are good examples: Griffon’s Eye, Crown of Ages, Death Cleaver, Death Fathom,  Shadow Dancer, Steelrend and Windforce can only be dropped by level 85+ monsters, as their base types (Diadem, Corona, Berserker Axe, Dimensional Shard, Myrmidon Greaves and Ogre Gloves) drop only by level 85+ monsters. With the upcoming 2.4 patch and the Ladder season, several area’s monster levels will be increased to 85. Keep an eye on Rpgstash's ladder item selection, we will already have top level ladder runes, ladder rune packs, ladder runewords and ladder charms available on the first day of the new season in our D2R Store!
