2. Minion Damage

  • Damage Types – Zombies, Animate Guardian Animate Guardian, Animate Weapons, Holy Relic, Sentinels of Dominance, Sentinels of Purity, Skeletons and Stone Golems deal physical damage, Spectres and Dominated deal whatever damage they did before they died, Raging Spirits deal physical damage of which 50% is converted to fire (much like Infernal Blow Infernal Blow), and the four other Golems do damage in accordance with their names (chaos, fire, cold, lightning).
  • Critical strikes – Most minions have a base critical strike chance of 5% and a base critical strike multiplier of 1.3 times the damage. Raise Spectre Raise Spectre and Animate Weapon Animate Weapon are capable of creating exceptions to these previous 2 rules. Minions gain the charge benefits of monsters, which means each power charge is +200% increased critical strike chance.

When a minion kills an enemy, the player is partially rewarded with the kill. This means:

  • The player gains flask charges
  • The player’s IIQ and IIR is added to the minion’s support gems values to calculate drops.
