Diablo II: Resurrected Ladder Season 2 Now Live
- Jump into the second Ladder Season of Diablo II: Resurrected
- Unlock Terror Zones – frequently rotating areas that offer higher difficulty battles, more XP, and chances for better loot, all for a more epic level-up experience.
- Dominate the demons that have until now eluded you with 6 new Unique Grand Charms that allow you to break specific monster immunity types.
Sharpen your swords and muster your might – Ladder Season 2 of Diablo II: Resurrected is now live, including new Terror Zones and Sundering Charms. Beginning October 6, you can jump into the action and make your climb up the leaderboards as you slay the demons that lie in wait. Plus, experience all the quality-of-life updates, bug fixes, and more added in the recent Patch 2.5.
Ladder Season Two
Ladder Season Two ushers in the next opportunity to race to level 99 and amass powerful loot along the way. This season will introduce Terror Zones and Sundering Charms, helping you battle foes that cross your path! For those new to Ladder Seasons, you might be wondering what happens to your Shared Stash loot once the current season ends. Once Ladder Season One ends, all Ladder characters will transfer to their respective non-ladder group. All items in that character group’s shared stash go into a new Withdraw Only set of Shared Stash tabs, denoted by a check marked Past box. Players can withdraw any items they would like to keep throughout all of Ladder Season Two. When the season ends, this withdraw-only set of stash tabs will be overridden with any items in the Ladder Season Two Shared Stash. Make sure you retrieve any items before then or they will be lost forever!
To make the journey to level 99 accessible to a larger population of players, offer more variety other than repeatedly farming Baal, Diablo, and Nihlathak, and most importantly, remain challenging, Terror Zones have been introduced. When playing a Terror Zone-enabled game, every hour, diabolical tremors infused with the Lord of Destruction’s unwavering corruption overtake specific zones, terrorizing the monsters within, making them at least two levels higher than your current level or their original level, up to a maximum per difficulty. The XP received and loot dropped by killing terrorized monsters will be based on this new level. You can visit our latest blog for even more details on how monster levels will be impacted.
To unlock the Terror Zones feature, you must defeat Baal per character, per difficulty using any expansion character – existing characters that have already fulfilled the requirements will automatically have this feature unlocked. Once Ladder Season Two begins, players will need to meet those unlock requirements to experience Terror Zones on their new ladder characters.
New Sundering Charms
In Hell difficulty, monsters can receive resistance increases above 100%, making those monsters immune to specific damage types. Previously there were only a handful of ways to reduce a monster’s immunity, which means only a small portion of hero builds could successfully farm all zones. To solve this scenario and promote increased class build diversity, we’ve introduced six Sundering Charms that allow the player to break specific monster immunity types while the charm is in the inventory of new Ladder characters. Keep your wits about you, for these new unique charms will only drop from Terrorized monsters of Champion, Unique, Superunique, or Boss difficulty.
Diablo® II: Resurrected™
Diablo® II: Resurrected™ is the definitive remastering of Diablo® II and its Lord of Destruction® expansion—two hallmark entries in Blizzard Entertainment’s genre-defining action role-playing series. Veteran players, as well as those who missed out when the original game was first released on PC twenty years ago, can now experience Diablo® II’s timeless gameplay with modern visuals and audio that take advantage of today’s gaming hardware.

Seven of Sanctuary’s greatest champions await at the iconic campfire screen—the Amazon, Assassin, Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Paladin, and Sorceress. Each is highly customizable with countless build and gear options for players to explore.
