Über Baal (Demon) (Pandemonium Event)
Über Baal lies in a secret realm where, together with his brothers, he commands three generals.
These generals, Lilith, Duriel, and Izual, conduct operations from their own hidden realms. Adventurers
powerful and clever enough to unravel the secrets behind this "Pandemonium" will obtain knowledge
and treasure used only by the most powerful agents of sin.
Tips and Other Additional Information
Über Baal becomes a much larger threat than his previous
incarnation, mainly because he has Diablo to tank for him.
Static Field and Crushing Blow is very nice for bringing his health
down. Hirelings can also be very helpful, especially the Act II
and Act V hirelings.
High Physical and Cold Resistance helps a lot against Baal. His
Hoarfrost attack can shove you away from him, giving him time to
spawn a Vile Effigy or follow up with Mana Rift. Dodge the Hoarfrost
whenever possible and try to corner him.
Bring Rejuvenation Potions to prepare for his Mana Rift, which can be
very damaging to all classes.
Should he unleash
Festering Appendages on you, relocate yourself around Baal so they
can't get free hits.
Über Baal regenerates life at twice the normal rate.
Uber Baal is Magic Resistant and Cold Enchanted, adding 85-130 cold damage and 26 seconds cold length to his attacks, and releasing a cold nova applying 428-430 cold damage and 57 seconds cold length upon death. These bonuses and his immunities are not displayed. Critical hits double damage but not length.
Über Baal has many special attacks:
Level 37 Chilling Armor applies +225% Defense for 360 seconds (6 minutes), increasing 3,150 Defense to 10,237.
Baal can Teleport around but he cannot heal himself in the process.
Über Baal can cast a curse resembling three converging needles
which applies -95% Defense to targets in a 8 yard radius for 35 seconds.
Succubi and Baal cast a special curse shown in the screenshot
below (Along with Thunderstorm and Energy Shield). This curse
causes you to do damage to yourself when you cast spells. For
skills that require more mana, you will take more damage. This
even includes such spells like Teleport but doesn't include Thunderstorm
or Energy Shield because you have already cast them. Whenever
this curse is cast on you, stop casting spells until it's worn
off, click on a Shrine to counteract it, or go back to town and
have it removed. Blood Mana only affects you if you have more
Mana than Life. If you have at least as much max Mana as max Life,
you can be cursed.

Created from fires summoned forth from the underworld, this explosion
of hellfire singes even the most stalwart warrior of light. All
enemies of the Lord of Destruction are bathed in this destructive
force, leaving only ashen remains in its wake.
The cold embrace of the grave seeks out those foolish enough to
invade Baal’s inner sanctum. This icy wedge drives itself into
its targets, pushing them back while slowing their movements as
they rapidly freeze to death.
The power behind magic is an elusive force to master and can be
fleeting, as well. Rending the very fabric of these forces, this
spell eradicates half of the mana the victim has stored, leaving
him sorely underpowered for the battle to come.
Stationary targets can be hit three times, reducing current mana by 1/2 and applying 24-36 magic damage each time. This can reduce a player to as little as ~1/8 current mana, and apply up to 150-162 magic damage in total.
Can summon Specters (Immune to Physical, Poison) and
Dark Lords (Immune to Physical, Cold).
Lashing out with unholy strength and fury, Baal shows that his
attacks are not limited to the arcane arts. Able to hold his own
against any foe in melee combat, his touch can tear down even
the strongest defenses. Über Baal's Destructive
Strike can be enhanced with Fire (+120-200% Fire damage) or Cold
(+120-160% Cold damage).
There is no escape from the Lord of Destruction, for even those
that choose to run are confronted with his far-reaching grasp.
Standing in the way of any escape are these resilient limbs, impeding
the backward progress of his adversaries.
Should Baal be confronted with overwhelming numbers, he can tip
the odds back to his favor by creating an exact duplicate of himself.
Having every power that his creator possesses, this replica doubles
the damage and destruction that Baal can create. The clone is
created with the same percentage of life as Baal. When damaging
the clone, a player will see the clone's Health Bar drop faster
than the real Baal.
