Diablo 2: Resurrected might generate a new map for every game session, but the order and the connections of the areas is always the same. Knowing where connects to where and which dungeons are optional will save you a lot of time and wandering (and dying).

In this Diablo 2 world order guide, we’ll give you maps — flowcharts, really — of how every area connects and how you’ll progress through them.
