This page lists changes to monsters in PD2 relative to the vanilla game.

Regular Monsters[edit]

For information about map monsters, see: Maps

  • Monsters can now spawn with new auras (all monster auras scale at mlvl/7)
  • Dolls have a small delay before exploding when killed, their explosion has a smaller radius, and it deals less damage

Special Monsters[edit]

Prime Evils (Mephisto, Diablo, Baal) are no longer affected by the Slows Target by X% affix on items or by Decrepify - this change applies to all versions of these enemies.

Diablo and Baal now have a chance to drop Prime Evil Soul in Hell difficulty.

Andariel[edit]

  • Andariel is now level 85 in Hell difficulty and drops from the same pool of items as Mephisto (except she still drops Twisted Essence of Suffering)
  • Hell-difficulty Andariel's melee attack damage has been increased by 10%
  • Hell-difficulty Andariel's health has been increased by roughly 23%
  • The area level of Catacombs has been changed (levels 1 & 2 increased to 80, levels 3 & 4 increased to 85)

Duriel[edit]

  • Duriel is now level 85 in Hell difficulty and drops from the same pool of items as Baal (except he still drops Twisted Essence of Suffering)
  • The area level of Tal Rasha's Tomb has been increased to 82

Mephisto[edit]

  • Mephisto can now float over the non-walkable blood moat areas in Durance of Hate. If he dies while above these areas, the items he drops will fall into the moat and be lost forever.
  • The Council Members in Durance of Hate are now closer to Mephisto.

Key Holders[edit]

Three additional enemies drop Uber Keys: Blood Raven, Bloodwitch, and Izual

The droprate of all Uber Keys is now 100% instead of 1/14 (Terror), 1/11 (Hate), 1/12 (Destruction)

Ubers[edit]

All ubers regenerate life like most monsters, but their high life means they regenerate substantially more per second than most. Monsters do not regenerate life while being damaged, so continuous damage such as Poison Damage or Open Wounds will halt their regeneration entirely. Prevent Monster Heal does not affect ubers. Note that ubers' immunities are not shown beneath their name like they are for other monsters.

Mini-Ubers

    • The fight is divided into four phases

      • A horde of skeletal enemies (Bone Warriors, Skeleton Archers, Horror Mages) rise from the ground during each phase (60% poison resistance)
      • Additional meteors and bone spirits are created in later phases
