Diablo® III

Monsters starting with 80% health

In every new pack of monsters I encounter, there will be one or a few monsters with only 80% (or so) health. Elite packs included. As if a D2 Sorceress ran up to them and used the Static Field spell on them before I arrived.

Anyone experience this too?

Yep

I have seen it also, not a clue what's causing it though.

If you have the female follower, that could have been done by her either from charming or a cluster attack she can be trained to do.

Or even from your range shots that go off screen. I have not notice the 80% (cause I don't pay that close attention to there health at start of battle), but many times I encounter drops that I thought no battle had occurred.

agreed, i have seen it. I run with the scoundrel so i cant confirm them being charmed.

yeah, basically every group i see has something less than full health. must be a bug

There are environmental hazards that damage monsters

I initially thought it might be my enchantress, but it's quite impossible as she only deals 4k damage, which won't even leave a dent on MP7. As for stray range attacks... my only range attack is a Hellfire fireball which also does hardly any damage, definitely not enough to take 20% off the health of an elite.

I mean I'm not complaining... just wondering why.

yep and I also find random piles of gold thru out the level as if I had alrady been there and killed some monsters, not sure why this happens.

Verified in solo play, its definitely not being caused by me or my follower doing damage to them off the screen. Pre-damaged mobs.

I've noticed as well on both my Barb and my Monk. Both use the scoundrel follower. No idea what the cause is. I always just chalked it up to maybe some mobs getting away from me or something. No clue.

This is an odd problem that cropped up recently, it isn't them being damaged by a source.

Two more threads I ran across about it:

I don't think it is the enchantress, because my treasure goblins are down health too, but not yet initiated, her attacking would cause it to run.

happens to me not alot but often its just like if you enter a new area say crater 2 there will be random gold piles on the ground and i'll run into a mob of whites and 1 or 2 will have a quarter of there health already down and i use the scoundrel so it cant be the enchantress. I always just said o well but who knows?

Yeah i started to notice this only a few days ago. And to be honest i think it is happening to more and more monster packs as time goes by. It is very odd.

only noticed this after the last round of server restarts. about 5 days ago maybe?

Would be nice if it happened to ubers too. Haha.

so i guess you can just sit at the start of the zone and just wait for all the units to die, and then clean up!
