Hi

So I have been playing with a friend and we can not seem to find a way around Diablo targeting my friend over me 99.9% of the time.

We have tried:
Friend creating the game.
Friend opening all the seals.
Friend engages Diablo first.
Friend on a lower level char then me.
Friend with less life then me.
Friend with less damage then me
Friend with less armour then me
Me being naked in a loin cloth dancing in front of him.

Why does he perma target me? it makes no sense how he would only target one person and never anyone else in the group?

Is his targeting mechanics broken or is there a reason why? is it class based?

I have had a few thoughts on this over the years as well. I do think it tends to be class based. It probably does have some judge of 'best chances' to kill, or 'most important' to kill. It was the same way in LoD. This is complete conjecture though.

"Me being naked in a loin cloth dancing in front of him." too funny, especially when I have done the same test.

IIRC it should be the same as in vanilla LoD. Diablo will always target the lowest level paladin within his attack radius first, working his way up paladins of increasing levels until none are available. I don't remember what he targets next but a google search will probably find what you are looking for.

Diablo's vanilla AI has a list of things it gives priority to. IIRC #1 priority is the target that has the most elemental/non-physical damage.

What does IIRC mean?
