Gamepedia and Fandom have joined forces and our combined teams would like to encourage all Diablo fans to unite and work together as well.
To achieve this, this wiki will be archived in favor of the Fandom Diablo community November 1st. Head to the community portal if you have questions or concerns before then.
Illusionist is an trait that is unique to Diablo III. It was thought to have been removed in Beta Patch 6 in response to the abuse of farming Wretched Mothers for XP bonuses, but it was later added back.
The Illusionist trait imbues a creature with the ability to create clones of itself. The clones have less health than their parent, are not able to use their parent's traits, and only deal a fraction of their damage. Some secondary abilities are not mitigated such as pools of fire left by fireballs from Blazing Guardians, or the gas clouds from a dead Accursed.
This trait can occur only for monsters equal to or greater than level 26.
