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.
Minions (Diablo II)
Minions are computer-controlled creatures that assist the player through the perils of Diablo II. They are usually summoned by a skill. Examples of minions are: Amazon's Decoy and Valkyrie; Necromancer's Skeletons, Golems, and Revived; Paladin's Converted; Assassin's Shadows and immobile Traps; Druid's Summoned Animals.
Minions have resistances that do not suffer from Nightmare and Hell Difficulty penalty. They do not benefit from any +damage and -enemy resistances items that the player has. Kills made by minions do not generate life and mana when the player has equipped "+x Life/Mana after each kill" items.
