Hellfire is an add-on to the action RPG Diablo.

It adds two new dungeons to the game: the Demon Crypt and the Festering Nest, both crawling with all-new creatures. The Nest has the appearance of an insect hive and is populated with insectoid monsters and a boss creature called the Defiler. The Crypt is controlled by the demon Na-Krul, a former lieutenant of Diablo who turned on his master and now works on his own.

To master the challenges of the new dungeons, a new character class is available: the Monk can use staff weapons to attack several enemies at the same time and also is an expert at unarmed combat as well as an able spellcaster.

Also added are new spells, items and weapons. New magical items include oils (once applied, they add magical effects to weapons) and runes (they can be set on the ground as booby traps, unleashing magical effects on unsuspecting monsters).


Hellfire Windows The Staff of the Jester is a nice object brought by the addon. It casts random spells.

Hellfire Windows Solar shrine - one of the eight new shrines in Hellfire.
