Andariel is a Demon, a SuperUnique, and an Act Boss

Andariel is the boss of Act One, and must be defeated to complete the Sisters to the Slaughter quest and open the caravan route to Act Two. She's found on level four of the Catacombs and is the first monster seen in the game who stands substantially taller than a player's character. Andariel is known as the Maiden of Anguish, and is one of the four Lesser Evils, in the game's mythology. In Diablo II she has been summoned from Hell by Diablo, and left to guard the Rogue Monastery, where she can prevent any heroes from following Diablo to the East. Characters must defeat Andariel to pursue Diablo across the vast desert to the town of Lut Gholein.

Andariel is a poison-based creature, capable of spewing toxic green clouds as well as striking with her scorpion tail-like stingers. She has good foot speed and attacks relentlessly, but is vulnerable to fire and can't hurt characters with high poison resistance. Use poison resistance equipment and antidote potions when fighting Andariel, and use the terrain as well; the blood lake in the atrium outside her throne room can be an effective obstacle, and many a player has survived this encounter by running round and round it, giving their healing potions time to work against Andariel's deadly poison. She is not a very popular monster to run for items, since she doesn't drop that appealingly, and isn't especially close to any waypoints. When killed, she erupts into a geyser of flame, and causes a small earthquake.

There is a Uber Andariel twin to kill in the Pandemonium Event, called Lilith.


Ancient Horadric texts record that Andariel and the other Lesser Evils once overthrew the three Prime Evils - Diablo, Mephisto and Baal - banishing them from Hell to our world. With this betrayal weighing against her, Andariel's presence in Sanctuary can only mean that the forces of Hell are once again aligned behind Diablo and his Brothers. While it is clear that the Maiden of Anguish is acting on behalf of Diablo to prevent anyone from following him eastward, it is also clear that she must be destroyed if the Lord of Terror is to be stopped.
