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 BlowInfernal BlowAttack, AoE, Melee, Fire

Neither passive skills nor stats from the player's equipment affect minions unless they specifically state "Minions _____".

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.

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