Diablo Walks the Earth
The Diablo Clone (DC) is officially called Uber Diablo by Blizzard and is a demon. DC appears in place of the next Super Unique you come to that you haven't already visited. To our knowledge, the actual distance between your char and the SU when it spawns is not stated anywhere. However, we think it's a very safe bet this distance will be the same as the distance that activates your quest button, i.e. approaching the hell forge smith your quest button is generally activated 2 screens before you actually get to see Hephasto.
Dclone has the following resistances: link
-95% to cold
-95% to fire
-95% to poison
-95% to lightning
-50% to magic
-50% to physical.
-About 650,000 life
-Monster level of 110
-Very high attack rating and defense
-Does high amounts of physical, lightning and fire damage
Q. How and where does the Diablo Clone spawn?
A. Diablo Clone spawns when between 75-125 soj have been sold on a single server since the last World Event on that server. See DcloneIRC counts webpage.
He will spawn in place of the first SUPER UNIQUE monster you come across. He cannot spawn in place of an end act boss (Andariel, Duriel, Mephisto, Diablo or Baal). He will also spawn in place of a quest related SU/Special regardless of whether you have completed the quest or not. Best practice is to decide where you want the clone to spawn and do not visit that area until the ‘Diablo walks the earth’ message appears.

Where does DC spawn?
Spawns in place of superunique monsters.
Q. You said "Kick the Clone's ass" but that's not easy! How do I kill him?
See the index in the Forum "Killing DC".
Q. How long will DC stay in game?
Forever, in theory. Practically, until the game or server crashes or you lose your connection.
Q. Does the number of Anni charms DC drops depend on how many people are in game?
No, DC always drops one Anni (Except in Classic).
Q. What does the "XXX Soj sold to merchants" message mean?
Pretty much exactly what it says, that xxx SoJ hav been sold to NPCs on that server.
The server Soj count goes up with each Soj sold on that server. However, a "...sold to merchants" message will not be displayed more often than once every 60 seconds.
Selling Soj and not getting a message doesn't mean your Soj did not count: it does! If a message with "300 Soj sold..." appears and you rapidly sell let's say 4 Soj, you will not get another message. But wait 1 minute and sell 1 more Soj: A "305 SoJ sold..." message will now be shown.
Q. How do I find the Clone?
1. Make games until you find the desired active IP.
2. Idle in-game until the "Diablo walks..." message appears.
3. Spawn DC in place of the SU at your favorite location.
4. Kick the Clone's ass.
Q. How do I find the desired IP?
1. Click on START.
2. Click on RUN.
3. Type in " cmd " or " command " without the quotes.
4. While your in the "cmd" (DOS-Box/DOS-prompt) window, type:
" netstat -n " without the quotes.
5. A list of IPs should appear in the "cmd" window. Look for the line that has: 213.248.106.XXX:4000.
4000 tells you that it is the battle.net game server. XXX is the IP number.
6. When people post IPs with let's say " Soj count 2304 @ .167 " you would then want to find IP .167. So create a hell game and go to the "cmd" window and type "netstat -n" without the quotes. If the number isn't .167 continue to make more games and repeat the process with netstat -n. This can take time, Blizzard has 77 D2 servers atm. Once you are on .167, wait for Diablo Clone to walk and collect your prize!
Optional is the Maphack cheat, which can also be configured to show the game IP and is covered in the software section.
Q. How do I idle for hours without losing my game?
There are ways to do this in all acts except act 4 but these are the easiest and most reliable two places to do this:
1. Starting from the act 5 town WP, go up the stairs halfway until you are on the landing between you stash and Malah. Stand a bit to the left, so that you have about 1/3 of the landing to the left and 2/3 on the right. Now click on your stash. Your char will run to the left and get caught on the corner. He can now run forever without getting tired. You can chat, message and even check your inventory while "shaking". With practice you'll get it down everytime. This is much easier than the description FPRIVATE "TYPE=PICT;ALT=Wink"
2. Go somewhere in act 5 and open a TP. Return to town and enter Malah's house. Go near the right wall and click on the TP. You should get caught at the doorway and not reach the TP.
What is the lowest level possible to kill dclone?
Lowest I heard was a level 19
Softcore level 24 pally.
Q. How much experience does killing DC give?
Arreat Summit claims a whopping 5,539,200 exp for killing DC but this is not true, at least not under any circumstances we have been able to reproduce. Actual experience gained will depend on your char level as well as the number of players who were in the game at the time DC was spawned. Here are some approximate values for your reference:
Level 85 char: 1,000,000 exp, 1 player spawn
Level 90 char: 275,000 exp, 1 player spawn
Level 93 char: 120,000 exp, 1 player spawn
Level 90 char: 425,000 exp, 4 player spawn
Level 92 char: 240,000 exp, 2 player spawn
Level 97 char: 110.000 exp, 3 player spawn
Q. Can DC appear more than once?
No. The Clone cannot appear more than once in a single game. Yes, that is a maybe if you sell another 80-120 sojs.
Q. Is there any way I can pick up or carry more than 1 Annihilus charm?
One never knows for sure what hacks are out there, but no, you cannot have more than 1 charm on a character. For softcore, you die with one in character inventory, then once dead pick up second. Of course, such does not work on hardcore.
