Guide to Shrines in Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction

Randomly placed and generated, shrines can help you out in a tough battle temporarily. There are a number of different shrines that your character may come across in Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction. Knowing what they do and their effective range of use, can be quite helpful to maximize their usage in the game. In this article I tell you about each shrine you will encounter, plus tell you if it recharges or resets after a certain time frame, and how long that the effect of the shrine will last upon your character.

Sometimes it is best to wait to use a particular shrine than to just touch the shrine when it is not needed right away. Simple planning of the route you are going to take, the particular quest monsters you are going to encounter, may mean that with just a quick back track to a shrine can help wipe out that quest and Boss Monster quicker than going it without the boost. Plan ahead and use the shrines wisely.
