### [1.14D] Unique monster stats

Hello all,

Was wondering if someone could assist me with the following: Have been checking around on the forum regarding the stats unique monsters receive in normal/nightmare/hell but it's quite a puzzle.

What I could find so far:

- The mlvl gets increased by 3
- The first 4 ID's of MonUMod always gets applied (that being rndname 100 / hpmultiply 75 / light 50 / leveladd 200)? to a total of 425% HP?
- UniqueDamageBonus (90) from DifficultyLevels.txt is applied (MonUModConstant/100*DifficultyLevelsAdjustment)
- Elemental Bonus = MonLevelDamage[mLvl]/100*MonUModConstant

Meaning for a, normal difficulty, level 1 cold enchanted zombie unique:

MAIN
- Zombie stats (AC 84 / MinHP 101 / MaxHP 181 / MinDM 51 / MaxDM 151 / TH 101)
- mlvl is 4 (AC 24 / HP 15 / DM 4 / TH 26)
- MonUModConstant is 33 (Cold)

AC
- AC is normal calculated? (84*24)/100 = 20,16

HP
- MinHP is (101*15)/100 = 15,15 + 64,3875 (15,15/100*425) = 79,5375
- MaxHP is (181*15)/100 = 27 + 114,75 (27/100*425) = 141,75

DMG
- MinDM is (51*4)/100 = 2,04 + 29,7%? (MonUModConstant (33) / 100 * DifficultyLevelsAdjustment (90)) so 2,04 + 0,60588 (6,04/100*29,7) = 2,64588
- MaxDM is (151*4)/100 = 6,04 + 29,7%? (MonUModConstant (33) / 100 * DifficultyLevelsAdjustment (90)) so 6,04 + 1,79388 (6,04/100*29,7) = 7,83388

TH
- TH is (101*26)/100 = 26,26 + 29,7%? (MonUModConstant (33) / 100 * DifficultyLevelsAdjustment (90)) so 26,26 + 7,79922 (26,26/100*29,7) = 34,05922

COLD
- Min & Max Cold damage is (MonLevelDamage[mLvl] (4) / 100 * MonUModConstant (33)) = 1,32
- Cold length frames is (mLvl (4) * 6 + 100) * 2 = 248) = 248
- Cold nova min damage is 6 + 1,32 (MonLevelDamage[mLvl] (4) / 100 * MonUModConstant (33)) = 7,32
- Cold nova max damage is 8 + 1,32 (MonLevelDamage[mLvl] (4) / 100 * MonUModConstant (33)) = 9,32
(Nova (ID 194 coldunique) scaling with the +% minion/champion/unique elem min/max dmg% rows)

Stats will be: Level 4 / 20,16 AC / 79,5375-141,75 HP / 2,64588-7,83388 (phy) DMG / 34,05922 TH / 1,32 (cold) DMG with 248 frames cold length / 7,32 to 9,32 cold nova with 75 frames cold length

Hope anyone can verify these calculations/numbers and or let me know where they're inaccurate; also like to know if the same % bonus is applied in nightmare and hell.

Hi Woestave, see: https://www.theamazonbasin.com/wiki/ind ... _(monster). Note that monumods.txt is basically two different txt files crammed together, with constants being independent of the rest of the txt file. So rather than gaining a life bonus from rndname, hpmultiply, light and leveladd; they'd rather just gain the the unique +hp% bonus from the respective difficulty, of +300%/+200%/+100%, and minions would gain +100%/+75%/+50%. Or at least I presume so, I've never tested it in-game, and it's hard to say if something actually does what it says it does in Diablo 2 until you do exact tests by reading monster stats/results directly in-game.
