Diablo® III

Self Sufficient achievement

has anybody gotten this achievement on a barbarian? Kill Diablo without using any health globes or healing wells on Nightmare difficulty or higher. plz any tips, i've try for over 2 hours but he just randomly drops globes, i can only melee ones or twise, and just kite around.

My problem would just be trying to AVOID the health globes.

see what i did was remove my items that give me longer range for picking globes up, and i use slam to kill him and kite him around.

Wait till you can farm Hell easily, so that Nightmare Diablo ain't nothing. Then it just comes down to avoiding the health globes.

Definitely don't bother with this if you NEED healing over the course of the fight :P

This is bugged for me.

I've killed him probably a dozen times now, never once used a well or picked up a globe, and it's not popping.

Do self heals (Galvanizing Ward on Wizard) count? Either way, I've tried without. Tried without using potions, nothing works.

It's either bugged or some other rule exists that's not making it tick.

be level 60
earthquake on the bars, glyphed for free/105 second cd
spec for the 30 second reduced cd passive
run away, drop earthquake.

all i can think of atm, with enough dps doing it on nightmare it should go with decent pace.

This is really simple. Take the passive that makes you regen fury instead of lose it over time, place weapon throw on your left mouse button, win.

All I'm doing with my wizard is using teleport with venom hydra, energy weapon, and familiar.

All I do is run around and let the hydra kill him.

Whenever the clones come out, I'm nowhere near them when they die since they're the ones that drop the globes.

Other than that, I have no idea why this isn't working. There's nothing else I've seen that drops globes. I don't even need to heal using this method, it's a stupid easy and quick fight.

So why hasn't it popped?

also having problems doing this... kinda hard to avoid the random globes being dropped i guess...

punch diablo worked perfectly fine for me.
1) unequip weapon
2) make sure your left click is empty
3) left click on diablo
4) if the punch hits, achievement done

Tried this three times...
First time accidentally picked up a globe, retry
Second time had life steal equipped, used a self healing spell, didn't work
Third time, removed life steal, didn't use self heal, got the achievement...

Remove globe/yard gear and equip life regeneration if you are having problems.

the only reason this achievement is hard to get is because you accidentally radius a health globe.
if you're actually having trouble with it because you're dying, couldn't you just go faceroll it in nightmare?

^This, Blizzard didn't mention in the achievement that your self heals, such as Health on Hit and Life Per Second FAILS the achievement. Thank you for mentioning this!
