Monsters can have modifiers alike items, strongboxes and areas. All modifiers can be divided into several groups: implicit, explicit (or affixes – prefixes and suffixes), torment and so on.

Implicit modifiers

Name Effect(s)
Far Shot Projectile damage is increased based on how far the target is from the attacker. Used by Birdmen, Maelströms, Voidbearers, as well as some unique monsters. See also Point Blank.
Undead These monsters can be raised by Necromancers. Used by Skeletons, Zombies and others.

Explicit modifiers

Magic monsters have one affix; rare monsters have three affixes, one of which may be an aura. This system is similar to rarity on items, in that magic monsters have their affix added to their name and rare monsters are given a randomly generated name. For more information see Rarity#Monsters.

Version history

Version Changes
3.24.0
  • Rare Monster item bonus mechanics are now rarer, and the following item bonus mechanics have been removed: Items dropped are converted to Gems, Items dropped are converted to Scarabs, Items dropped have all White Sockets, Items dropped are Duplicated, Slain Rare monster gives increased Experience, and Slain Rare monster gives increased Gem Experience.
  • Cycling Damage Reduction has been reworked and is now "Adaptive Resistances". Monsters will become resistant to the highest damage type taken (Fire, Cold, Lightning or Chaos).
  • Fixed a bug where the "Chance to Freeze" monster modifier only had a 1% chance to Freeze; it is now 25%.
3.22.1d
  • Improved the performance of the visual effect applied to Monsters with the Poisons modifier.
3.22.1
  • The Exploding Orbs Monster modifier now spawns a single Exploding Orb, which emerges from behind the Rare Monster with the modifier. The audio for the Exploding Orb has also been changed to be better telegraphed.
  • Improved the audio of the Heralding Minions and Toxic Monster modifiers.
3.21.1
  • The Cycling Damage Reduction monster modifier now grants 80% reduced damage taken from elements other than the active one (previously 90% reduced).
3.21.0
  • The Powerful Minions Monster modifier has been split into two different modifiers. Powerful Minions, which buffs the life and damage of minions, and Constantly Revives Minions, which well, constantly revives minions.
  • The Rare Monster modifier that triggers purple crystals when the monster is hit now has larger crystals, and the crystals have a slightly longer delay before exploding after the monster dies. The crystals now deal Chaos Damage instead of Elemental Damage, and have had their damage lowered.
3.20.2
  • The Ambushes monster modifier can no longer be found on Magic Monsters, as it had no effect on them.
3.20.1b
  • The visual effect applied to monsters with modifiers that cause Minions to Fire, Cold, or Lightning Explode on Death has been removed as it caused visual issues in some circumstances.
3.20.1
  • Updated the "Cycling Resistances" monster modifier text to "Cycling Damage Reduction" as it is more accurate.
3.20.0
  • Monster mods now only do one specific thing and say exactly what they do.
  • Since each mod now only does a single thing but monsters don't have more mods than they used to, the percentage of monsters with gameplay-altering effects is now much lower. Interesting and challenging emergent behaviour from overlapping mods can still happen, just less often.
  • Players are no longer required to do annoying actions to maximise rewards. In Archnemesis, rewards were associated with individual mods. This meant that you could tell what kind of rewards you would get in advance. In some cases, you were then effectively required to fetch a magic-find culling character to make sure that you maximised the value of the monster mod that you had found. In other cases, you would ignore a monster completely if you knew that it would only drop rewards that were of no value to you. In the new system, we have added a significant pool of new rewards to rares, but the reward that is on the monster is hidden (and not associated with a specific mod), so you don't know what kind of rewards you will get until you kill the monster. Rare monsters with more mods are more likely to have these special hidden reward mods. This new reward system smooths out the spikiness that the Archnemesis reward system had.
3.18.0
3.17.0
  • The Aura radius for "Allies Move and Attack Faster" has been increased to be the same as other Monster Auras.
  • Caster Monsters are now able to have Extra Damage as a modifier.
  • The Plated modifier now provides 30% additional Physical Damage Reduction instead of Armour. It still only appears on Monsters that have Armour.
  • Added new Magic and Rare Monster modifiers for Chaos Resistance for all Monsters.
  • Added new Magic and Rare Monster modifiers for Extra Lightning Damage for attack Monsters.
  • Added new Magic and Rare Monster modifiers for Cast Speed and Spell Damage for caster Monsters.
  • The "Allies Deal Substantial Extra Physical Damage" modifier no longer has the word "Substantial" in it, though the values of the modifier have not changed.
  • The Evasion Rating modifier for Monsters is now a prefix modifier instead of a suffix, to match the Armour and Energy Shield modifiers.
0.5.3
0.5.1
  • Dramatically improved rewards for killing rare and magic monsters.
