Welcome, Diablo Community! With Diablo 2 Resurrected launching this September, and the Open Beta starting today, we are thrilled to give you early access to our latest project - one that is very dear to our hearts. After months of blood, sweat, and tiers, we’re excited to share with you the Maxroll Diablo 2 Resurrected Website! This new addition to Maxroll seeks to be the definitive source for players of all skill levels, from beginners to pros. Our goals were to develop resources that are simple and efficient to use while also providing tremendous depth, so that players can quickly reference Maxroll during a gaming session, but can also take a deep dive and spend hours fully mastering Diablo 2’s mechanics.
This new branch of the Maxroll website will exist alongside our Diablo 3 and Diablo Immortal sites, and you can use our Game Selector (pictured below) to smoothly switch between the Diablo games we cover.
It was our original intent to unveil the site when it was fully complete. However, after seeing the overwhelming enthusiasm from our community inquiring about our coverage of Diablo 2 Resurrected, we have decided to launch this early access. We’re doing this so players jumping into the D2R Open Beta can benefit from the guides and tools we have already completed. By the time D2R launches on September 23rd, our site will be feature complete. In the meantime, we would love your feedback so that we can ensure Maxroll meets all your needs.
Our Maxroll Diablo 2 team is a collaboration of content creators within the Diablo community that have come together to pool their expertise. Their knowledge in creating guides and resources to help players get the most out of the game is second to none.
New tools and features added to Maxroll include a dedicated D2Planner. A calculator for Drops, Experience, Runewords and Gambling. The addition of comprehensive Tier Lists, Build Guides, game mechanics explanations and many more things to come — you name it, we got it. If we don’t have it, let us know!
Maxroll D2R Team
Since it’s initial reveal, the Maxroll D2R team has grown to cover even more aspects of the game we know and love playing! Whether they are top-end players, incredible sources of knowledge, or can put together a build out of anything, they have you covered. This team has put together some amazing content, and the future looks only brighter with more content to come!
Teo1904 - General Content Lead
Teo1904 is one of the best Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction speedrunners in the world. From the inception of D2’s speedrunning scene, he was there to help shape the strategies and techniques people still use to this day. At the peak of his career, he held over two dozen Diablo 2 speedrunning World Records, and even two years later, his past records remain among the top 10 on Speedrun.com. He seeks out the competitive element of any game he plays and is always willing to share his knowledge and experience with others.
MacroBioBoi - Content Lead
MacroBioBoi started speedrunning Diablo 2 three years ago with one mission in mind: to crack the top ten runners of all time on the Sorceress. After achieving this goal, he began studying every aspect of Diablo 2’s mechanics and ultimately went on to secure multiple World Records and top 5 placements across all characters. He beat the World Record for Diablo 2’s no-attacking Pacifist run so many times that he went on to literally write the book on how to do it, and he pioneered one of the top speedrunning tactics in the game. To this day, he continues to dig into the mysteries of Diablo 2 to uncover more secrets.
Dbrunski - Build Guides
Dbrunski has been playing Diablo 2 consistently since the game was released, along with streaming and creating videos on YouTube for the last three years. He takes joy in playing almost every build extensively, with a focus on end game character development and theorycrafting. He is extremely excited to be part of the team at Maxroll and looks forward to sharing his extensive knowledge with new and returning players to Diablo 2.
DarkHumility - Build Guides
DarkHumility has achieved a feat so rare that it is known as the Holy Grail within the Diablo 2 community: collecting one of every single unique and set item in the game. As a master of countless builds, he has put together over 100 Fully-geared Characters Solo-Self Found from the ground up across both Hardcore and Softcore. He actively tests different builds and methods of farming items to establish which are the best to recommend to players.
BTNeandertha1 - Build Guides
BTNeanderthal is a full-time Diablo 2 content creator that has been streaming since 2016. He holds a variety of accolades in both modded and un-modded D2, including a current world-record Paladin speedrun. He has, on more than one occasion, been the first to attain max level in specific categories, and he has had the tenacity and techniques to acquire exceptionally rare and valuable items.
SenpaiSomething - PvP Build Guides
SenpaiSomething is mostly known for being one of the creators of Project Diablo 2 which prior to D2R held the largest Diablo 2 playerbase in the world. However, before Project Diablo 2 he was a well a known name in the Diablo 2 guide scene, often making off meta builds work when others say they can't. He has been playing the game since release back in 2000 and has been PvP-ing on and off ever since. His goal is always to spread positivity, break everything in every game and to stack ears in the Blood Moor.
D2Planner is a new invaluable tool we’re excited to share with the DIablo 2 community! It is a creation of Riv, the mastermind behind D3Planner! Head on over and check it out! You can create your own Character Builds, see detailed information about Items and skills and in-depth damage and breakpoint calculations. You can use your current D3Planner Account, create a new one for D2R or use it without creating an account. D2Planner uses detailed assets from both the original Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction and Diablo 2 Resurrected. Graphics for items, gear, weapons, charms, etc. are all there for your visual enjoyment. To switch, just simply click between the two options in the top left of the planner. For our Guides, we created interactive embeds for Skills, Items, Sets and the entire paper doll (left image). With Diablo 2 Resurrected in-game mechanics rapidly changing during development, we will do our best to keep the tool up to date. Together, we aim to make Maxroll and D2Planner a one-stop shop for Diablo 2, and can’t wait to hear the community’s feedback.
Project Diablo 2 and PvP
We’re also happy to announce our partnership with SenpaiSomething, the creator of the popular Project Diablo 2 mod that has taken the Diablo 2 community by storm over the past year. Thanks to our collaboration, Maxroll will soon enough be able to provide D2Planner support to Project Diablo 2 in addition to Diablo 2 Resurrected.
Furthermore, SenpaiSomething will be lending his expertise in Diablo 2’s PvP scene to help build out our PvP guides, which will be ready in time for you to crush your opponents and steal their ears on September 23rd.
We’re happy to launch early access for this weekend’s Diablo 2 Resurrected Open Beta. It’s a great feeling to be able to guide you through the first acts, and look forward to serving the community for many ladders to come! More content will be released over the upcoming weeks, heading up to the launch on September 23rd. Thank you for stopping by to see our resources we've put together and for being part of our amazing Diablo community.
The entire Maxroll team wishes you an amazing D2R open beta. See you in Sanctuary!
