Kill

The term kill refers to causing death of a creature.

When kills are made by summoned minions, totems, traps or mines, player characters are credited for kills for the purposes of increased item quantity and rarity, flasks, and achievement-related stats, but generally not combat-related stats, where the non-player entity would get the credit for the kill instead.[citation needed] However, there is currently a bug that causes any damage over time kills to always grant credit to the player character even if they are caused by a minion, totem, trap, or mine.[citation needed]

Corpses

Most creatures leave corpses on death. Totems and non-unique monsters killed when frozen or under certain effects (e.g. PyrePyre
