Effect on monsters

Monsters gain extra life for each additional party member after the first:
|Life \ Members||2||3||4||5||6|
|Normal Monster Life||50%||100%||150%||200%||250%|
|Magic Monster Life||60%||120%||180%||240%||300%|
|Rare Monster Life||80%||160%||240%||320%||400%|
|Unique Monster Life||100%||200%||300%||400%||500%|
It is believed that monster's extra life gain is only affecting nearby ones, therefore players leaving map before new monsters are encountered have no effect on their life.
Effect on loot
Each player after the first adds the following bonus:
|Effect \ Members||2||3||4||5||6|
|increased item quantity||27%||51%||73%|
|increased item rarity||17%||31%||44%|
Bonuses to item rarity or quantity from modifiers on player gear are only counted from the player who lands the killing blow. This bonus is multiplicative with any player bonuses to rarity/quantity. Any quantity bonus from a map is multiplicative with all other modifiers.
Item drops from monsters are calculated based on the number of players nearby (13 metres - around six tiles, which is approximately a screen) rather than the number in the instance. The quantity of drops is based on the minimum of the number of players who were around at the start and end of the fight. This means that if you spawn a boss alone before bringing in friends to help (or if the friends leave during the fight) then it will only drop enough items for one person.
Effect on experience
See experience in party for more information.
Effect on flasks
Party members of a character landing the killing blow on an enemy will gain flask charges if they are nearby. This is not true for all +life and +mana gained "when you deal a killing blow" modifiers; only a character actually landing a killing blow will trigger those effects.
