Unique Monsters (Diablo II)
Unique Monsters are stronger versions of regular monsters. They spawn with additional bonus abilities as well as a group of minion monsters. Minion monsters have the same stats as regular monsters, unless the Unique monster has certain stats it bestows upon its minions (listed below).
Unique Monsters are create randomly with each new game, and appear in random places as well. Their names appear in gold text, and almost all monsters can spawn as a unique.
Some Unique Monsters always appear in the same place each game, and have the same attributes: they are referred to as Super Unique Monsters. Bosses fall under this category.
Unique Monster Bonuses
Unique Monsters spawn with some additional abilities. These are picked randomly each time a Unique Monster spawns. There are a total of 13 different bonuses a Unique can get.
- Aura Enchanted
- Cold Enchanted
- Extra Fast
- Extra Strong
- Fire Enchanted
- Lightning Enchanted
- Magic Resistant
- Mana Burn
- Spectral Hit
- Stone Skin
Unique Monster Names
Uniques spawn with varying names. These names are entirely random and have nothing to do with either the base monster or the abilities it spawns with. The generator isn't very advanced however, so the nature of the process sometimes appears to be not-so random.
All names are composed of one prefix followed by one suffix and one appelation. The entries are selected irrespectively of each other, and could return any combination:
- Rot Pus the Unclean
- Mind Bang the Sharp
- Nefarius, Phrozen Keep, http://phrozenkeep.hugelaser.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=442579#p442579
