How to Get The Inferno Charm and the Three Keys By T.a.t.u97
This is to guide you on to how to get your Hellfire Charm, which contains 3+ To
a random Character class, 10+ Amount of stats, 10+ Amount of resists, along with
other great features. In order to get the charm, you must get through some tough
bosses. You need to collect 3 sets of 3 different keys (Terror Key, Hate Key and
Destruction Key). After recieving the keys, you put 3 different keys into your
Cube and transmute them Only in Act 5 Hell. A portal should come up, either
called "The Furnace of Pain" for Izual, "Matrons Den" for Lilith, or "Forgotten
Sands" for Duriel. After killing one boss, you recieve a body part (either
Diablo's Horn, Baal's Eye, or Mephisto's Brain). After you recieve the body part,
you must find another set of three keys and repeat until you have all 3 body
parts. After recieving the body parts, you put them in your cube and transmute
it. A portal to Tristram will come up, where Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal are
kindly waiting for you with an endless amount of minions. After you go through
that hard task of defeated all 3 Bosses, you recieve a Large Charm along with
badges, that signify you have overcome this tough obstical. Here is what you
need to do to get that far.
Getting the Keys
To get the keys, you need to do the Following:
Kill The Countess (Act 1, Forgotten Tower) Drops the Terror Key
Kill The Summoner (Act 2, Arcane Sanctuary) Drops the Hate Key
Kill Nilithak (Act 5, Hall of Pain) Drops the Destruction Key
In order to obtain these keys, you need to do as many amount of runs to get them.
There is a 1/34 chance he or she will drop these keys when you kill them. The
best way to obtain these keys is to get a Sorceress who can handle Cold immunes
(Countess is Cold immune, as well as most the monsters at Nilithak) and can
teleport fast enough. That way many runs can be completed thus increasing your
chances to get these keys. Also, it is not impossible for a Boss to drop 2 of
the same keys at once. It has happened Twice to me in the same night.
Once all three keys are recieved, you should get a group of friends together to
take on the Boss waiting for you. I recomend getting Smite Paladins, 1 or 2
sorceresses, and a Barbarian (If needed). I have had the most easiest time with
a Smite Paladin, the Life leech and the life tap makes you almost invincible to
these creatures. Transmute the cube and go inside the Portal (Only will work in
Act 5 in Hell Difficulty). The portal will either be
The Furnace of Pain:Izual
Forgotten Sands: Duriel
This Uber Izual has much resists, My sorceress was doing 15k blizzard damage and
he was getting healed by it. My advice is do not bring a Sorc to kill Izual.
Bring a physical damage character, if anything. If you have to bring a sorc
along, bring a fire sorc. I used my barbarian and a pala to easily defeat him
and collect the body part. Also, there are alot of immune to Magic/Fire/Cold/Poison/Light
minions around, which is also bad for any type of element. Best strategy is to
just bring Physical damage characters.
Lilith I found to be the most difficult. She spits out poison that can really
tear you down. Also her physical damage (when you stand too close) can REALLY
take you out in about 2 hits. My advice is to bring a smiter pala and a couple
of sorcs. Have the smiter pala attack her with smite, making her focous on him.
The 2 sorcs stand back, casting their spell onto Lilith. The smiter should
recieve Life leech and/or Life tap (if items are Equipted to do so). That is the
best strategy I have for you to defeat her. Also, using antidote potions can
help, but she spits the poison so frequently it will not do alot of help.
Duriel Spawns in the most random places in his Portal. One time it took some
time to find him, the next time he was right up at the portal. My best
suggestion is that you do the same thing you did with Lilith, with the Smiter
paladin and the Sorceresses. Blizzard seemed to work fine Vs Duriel.
Once you collected your body part, continue to search for keys and open the
portals until you have recieve all 3 body parts (Horn, Eye, Brain). Once you
have recieved those body parts, put them in your cube and transmute them to make
the last and final portal, the portal to Tristram.
Portal to Tristram
The last and final portal after all this hard work. This is the most difficult
one of all, because not only do you have to defeat one boss, but you have to
defeat 3 at one time, along with an endless amount of spawning minions. What I
recommend is you get a variety of type of characters to help you do this last
mission. I would get something like a Bowazon to get rid of the minions, Couple
of Smite paladins to attack the Boss, and sorcs to help them. First, I would
take down Mephisto. He is the hardest one. He is using the conviction aura which
can totally bring your resists down so much. Not only does he hit you with
lightning attacks, but he does a hell of alot of physical damage if you get too
close. I suggest you get the Paladins on him with some type of lightning absorb
or resists, either a sheild with Lo runes or Gems, something to keep the light
resists up. Get the paladins to distract him while you get the sorc to attack
him. I recommend bliz sorc, it did the most damage. To keep the bosses from
healing, have one person attack the boss and the rest heal, then trade off. If
everyone goes to heal, you will come back to a rejuvenated Boss. Once Mephisto
is dead, move onto Baal. Try to get the bosses seperated from eachother, so you
do not have too much to handle. Baal goes down pretty easy with the same type of
strategy used with the Smiters and Bliz sorc. Once he is defeated, move onto the
last but definatly not least Diablo. I recommend everyone attacking him, he has
tough resists and takes quite a few blows. Smiters can take him down fairly fast,
along with Bliz.
Once all the bosses are dead, an X amount of charms drop, based on the people in
the game. There are the small "Standards of the Hero" charms, which basically
are an award for going through this tough challenge. Then of course, there is
the wonderful Hellfire Large Charm, which only one is dropped. This charm does 3
to a certain character class of skill, which is decided randomly, amoung the
Stats and Resists. You can put this in your inventory, along with the Uber Clone
Diablo's Anni charm. You can only equipt one Hellfire charm at a time, as if it
was an Anni.
With the three skill and stats and resists, all of this work is Well worth it.
Good luck and go kick some ass!
