Griswold is an Undead Super Unique Monster, encountered in the destroyed town of Tristram in Diablo II. He was the town's blacksmith during the events of Diablo, before its destruction by Diablo.


After Diablo was slain in the catacombs beneath the town of Tristram, a grand celebration that lasted several days was held. The hero that defeated the Lord of Terror looked as if he had walked through Hell itself, and as the weeks passed, he kept his distance from the rest of the townsfolk and seemed to lapse into a dark, brooding depression. One day, he simply left. And shortly thereafter Tristram was attacked by legions of foul demons. While many of the townsfolk were merely slain, some were forced into cursed servitude.

The stout blacksmith Griswold was one of those who were bound past death to attend the desires of The Three. Wandering the town he once loved, he uses arcane powers and an unholy strength granted to his twisted body by Andariel to stop any from following the path of the Wanderer.


Tips and Other Additional InformationEdit

Griswold will curse with Amplify Damage if he can hit you. If possible stay out of melee range to avoid being cursed. Griswold is also immune to all knockback effects except Sanctuary, so it will be hard to stop his attacks. Although his immunity to knockback effects will be problematic for weaker players, Griswold is not very fast and has a slow windup before delivering a blow.
