  • Monster health will now be a flat increase of 75% health (per player), regardless of the difficulty in multiplayer.
  • No more enrage timers on elites.
  • Elites will no longer heal to full health
  • They are increases the health of normal monsters (but increasing the drop of magic or rare items by a factor of four), and lowering the health of champions and rares to shrink the gap between them.
