Minions are allied monsters summoned by the player. Minions have their own damage and their actions are treated completely separate from the summoner's. Zombies, Animate Guardian, Animate Weapons, 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 inventory icon.pngInfernal Blow

. Unlike totems, minions can gain charges.

Neither passive skills nor stats from your other equipment affect minions unless they specifically say "Minions _____".

Life Flasks with the "of Animation" suffix will heal minions life by 40-60% of the flasks recovery. This effect works even when you have full life or Chaos Inoculation.

When a minion kills an enemy you are partially rewarded with the kill. This means:

  • You gain Flask Charges
  • Your IIQ and IIR is added to the minion's support gems values to calculate drops.

Totems, Traps and Remote Mines are not counted as minions, they are remote skills.
