Semantic Mediawiki (SMW) has been disabled on the PoE wiki due to major issues it has recently caused across the Gamepedia network. The PoE wiki makes widespread use of SMW, which means a large portion of the pages will appear broken or show errors. The community admins and Curse are aware of the issue and are looking into solutions. In the meantime, try web.archive.org for a cached version of the wiki.

Monster modifiers

From Path of Exile Wiki
(Redirected from Nemesis)
Jump to: navigation, search
Monsters can have modifiers alike items, strongboxes and areas. All modifiers can be divided into several groups: implicit, explicit (or affixes – prefixes and suffixes), bloodline, nemesis, torment and so on.

Implicit modifiers

Name Effect(s)
Far Shot Projectile damage is increased based on how far the target is from the attacker. Used by Birdmen, Maelströms, Voidbearers, as well as some unique monsters. See also Point Blank.
Undead These monsters can be raised by Necromancers. Used by Skeletons, Zombies and others.

Explicit modifiers

Magic monsters have one affix; rare monsters have three affixes, one of which may be an aura. This system is similar to rarity on items, in that magic monsters have their affix added to their name and rare monsters are given a randomly generated name. For more information see Rarity#Monsters.
