Can you lose your gear in Diablo 2 resurrected?

Answered by Tom Adger

In Diablo II Resurrected, just like in the original Diablo II, it is possible to lose your gear when you die. When your character dies, all of your equipped gear, as well as any items in your inventory, will drop on the ground in the form of a corpse. This corpse will appear at the location where your character died.

To retrieve your gear, you need to return to the spot where you died and click on your corpse. This will open a window displaying the items that were on your character when you died. You can then simply click on the items to pick them up and re-equip them.

However, it’s important to note that there are certain risks and challenges involved in retrieving your gear. When you die, your character will be transported back to the nearest town or waypoint, and you will have to make your way back to the location where you died. During this time, your corpse will remain on the ground, vulnerable to being looted by other players or enemies.

If another player loots your corpse, they will be able to take your gear for themselves. This can be particularly frustrating if you had valuable or rare items equipped. Similarly, if you die in an area populated by monsters, they may also loot your corpse, making it even more difficult to recover your gear.

In some cases, it may be necessary to enlist the help of other players to retrieve your gear. They can provide a protective presence while you retrieve your items or even help clear out any monsters that may be guarding your corpse. Alternatively, you can try to lure the monsters away from your corpse before attempting to retrieve your gear.

It’s important to be cautious and strategic when retrieving your gear in Diablo II Resurrected. Depending on the circumstances, it may be wise to wait for a more opportune moment or gather a group of players to ensure a safer retrieval. However, keep in mind that the longer you wait, the more time others have to potentially loot your gear.

Ultimately, losing your gear in Diablo II Resurrected can be a frustrating and challenging experience. It adds an element of risk and consequence to the game, forcing players to weigh their choices and approach combat with caution.
