Shrines (Diablo II)

From Diablo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
A Shrine and its mini map icon

Shrines are environmental objects found scattered throughout the Diablo II universe. They can be recognized on the mini map as a golden, circled cross. Clicking on a Shrine will activate its particular effect. There are many different types of Shrines and most are considered to be beneficial. Once a Shrine has been activated, the player will be unable to benefit from its effects again until it has recharged. Most Shrines have a modest recharge time, although some Shrines will not recharge and can only be used once per game. Shrines can have a significant impact on the power of your character - use them well!


Buff Shrines

  • The player can only have the effect of one Buff Shrine at any given time. Activating another Buff Shrine while a buff is still active on the player will cause the existing buff to be overwritten.
  • Curses will overwrite the buff from a Buff Shrine.
  • Similarly, the buff from a Buff Shrine may be used to overwrite a Curse.
