Über Izual (Demon) (Pandemonium Event)
From the Crystal Arch at the very heart of the High Heavens to
the arcane Hellforge of the Underworld, the warriors of the eternal
realms pursue victory in their timeless conflict. The legendary
deeds of the heroes of the realms beyond elicit both veneration
The greatest of these heroes was Izual, lieutenant to the Archangel
Tyrael and bearer of the Angelic Runeblade Azurewrath. He once led
a fierce attack upon the Hellforge as the creation of the dark demonblade
Shadowfang was nearing completion. During the battle that ensued,
Izual was overcome by legions of Chaos and was lost to the Darkness.
Izual now remains as a dark, tortured soul who is trapped within
the forsaken realms of Hell. Despite his valor and strength, his
form was twisted by the perverse powers of the Prime Evils. They
forced him to betray his own kind and give up Heaven's most guarded
secrets. Izual became a corrupt shadow of his former self; a fallen
angel trusted neither by Heaven nor Hell.
For his transgressions, the spirit of Izual was bound within the
form of a terrible creature that was summoned from the Abyss. His
maddened spirit has resided within that tortured husk for many ages
now. Although he now certainly no longer carries the weapon Azurewrath,
Izual still possesses great strength and powers within his new form.
He is a threat to any who would oppose him, and in his current state,
it is certain that he will see you as opposition.
Tips and Other Additional Information
Über Izual has two new abilities which make him much more dangerous. He can slow you down with Frost Nova and Chilling Armor, then Teleport close to one of your casters and hack away at them. Because he is immune to Cold, your party will have to fight more reactively, so Sorceresses should be ready to Teleport away and Necromancers should cast Bone Armor to prepare for this. Melee and tank characters like Barbarians and Paladins should equip "Cannot be Frozen" gear to keep from being slowed. He deals a massive amount of damage, so gear which provides Damage Reduction and Cold Resistance will help immensely.
Über Izual uses the following Skills: Frost Nova, Chilling Armor, Teleport.
Uber Izual is 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. This bonus and his cold immunity are not displayed.
65-104 cold damage and 4 seconds cold length is also added to his attacks (although this damage increases by 1/16 with each additional player in Ladder games), resulting in 150-234 cold damage and 30 seconds cold length in total. Critical hits double damage but not length.
Level 27 Chilling Armor applies +175% Defense for 300 seconds (5 minutes), increasing 2,520 Defense to 6,930.
