Extra Strong (Diablo II)

Extra Strong is one of the attributes that Unique Monsters may spawn with in Diablo II. This attribute is a physical attribute, since it affects the damage the monster does.

What It Does

Monsters with the extra strong attribute will do 2.5 times more damage, and their minions will do 1.75 times more damage. Obviously this can be devastating when put onto a very hard hitting monster like a Blunderbore, and not that threatening when put onto a monster that uses magic as its main attack, like a Black Soul.


  • Take some time to assess the monster. If it doesn't have a damaging physical attack, you should be safe with going into heavy melee combat.
  • If the monster does have a devastating melee attack, then hit-and-run is probably one of the safer options. Draw some minions away, kill them, rinse and repeat.
  • Make sure not to get cursed around these monsters, as it will multiply the physical damage by an additional 50%, meaning a total of 3 times the normal damage. Ouch.
