Diablo® III

** Staff of Herding **

Kite?


No, she can't kill me, either.

Seriously, blizz is playing a joke on us. She has the Illusionist ability, and whenever she splits, her current and max health get multiplied. You'll do damage, but there is absolutely no way to keep up with her health gain.

I heard something about a forum post in which someone griped about the secret level and said something like "I'll be pissed if we don't get to fight Princess Stardust." I think we're getting trolled for some angry forumites response. :P Hell, the whole damn level is a finger in the eye of all the people that griped about Diablo being too cartoony.

Have any of the secret level attendees here run into Princess Stardust? I'm trying to figure out if there is some way to actually kill her.


im 99.9% sure me and a buddy messed up Princess Stardust on our Nightmare runthrough. we were talking about it with another friend and we found it odd that it was named as such, since all the other names of the yellows were so demonic and crude. anyways, between freezing and stunning im almost positive we vanquished her.

Her name was also the same color as a miniboss (purple). I imagine that you'd have to stunlock the crap out of her to keep her from splitting.

Am I missing something?

*edit* Correction: Go back after beating Diablo. I thought I had done it sooner, but I may be misremembering.

The upgrade if it was not posted (for hell) anyway, set yourself on the final quest of hell to kill diablo then go back to town and buy it from the same guy you got the nightmare version.

Ive literally done 72 runs of Izual, have Nightmarish and Hellish, but cannot find the stupid normal staff of herding, I have been doing dual runs (i run it myself, then join in with a friend as soon as he is there) is there any way to make this easier....


I have the same problem. I have all the items, multiple copies of the NM plans, but I cannot get the normal plans.

I have the nightmare herding staff plan, but didn't get the normal version. is that okay? or will i have to farm the normal plan? I killed izeul on normal but the shop keeper didn't have the normal version to sell afterwards like they did on nightmare mode.

You need the normal plans.

I had no problems with this.
If you already learned the normal plans, and can't learn the nightmare plans, you might have to open a ticket, and talk to the best people in the world :)

Ok this is my first time playing Diablo, currently I'm in Act 2 Nightmare at the oasis part where the liquid gold merchant supposedly is. I quit the game and it restarted me at the waypoint there. Is that reseting anything?, because I've been trying that to continuously go back and forth from his location.

Also, is there a way to go back to retrieve the previous items while still maintaining my current gear? or do I need to try and get them in hell mode on that run through?

I would really appreciate any help here, thanks!


If the map is still explored, you didn't reset.
Change from Normal to Nightmare, stay on the same quest, then click start, then go check for the vendor, if he's not there, change from Nightmare to Normal. Continue doing this until you have your item, Good Luck!

Previous items...? I think you mean like, if you got the shinbone on normal and the liquid rainbow on hell, do I have to collect the Liquid rainbow on normal, the answer is no, you do not.
