Mortar is a monster trait that is unique to Diablo III and was first introduced in Beta Patch 5.
Monsters with mortar can lob several fireballs that deal splash damage on impact. Monsters can fire in any direction and the projectiles have a minimum range, allowing players to get under their arc to avoid damage. In tight areas, the mortars will land at a shorter distance than normally expected, causing artificially placed walls from the Waller trait a very deadly combination.
This trait can occur only for monsters equal to or greater than level 22.
