Diablo 3 Monster Curses

    What are the special abilities the unique/champion monsters can have?

    I have a Wizard, Witch Doctor and Demon Hunter, all of which are very early in Act I. Sometimes a small skull appears above my character. At other times (only with Odeg the Keywarden in the Fields of Misery?) my character is trapped inside a red column for a few seconds, or moves very slowly while a misty smoke moves around my feet. Are these curses from a monster? I've searched for a list or details of these, but I have not been able to find anything.



  • Sounds like you are being feared or snared by a Rare or Champion class enemy.

    You can read on all the possible modifiers that these Rare/Champion enemies can have.

    In your case you may have been fighting an enemy with the Jailer, Nightmarish, or Plagued modifiers.

    Jailers would give you that red column around your character which will stop you from moving and attacking.

    Nightmarish foes would make the skull appear above your character. When they 'fear' you, you lose control of your character and the skull appears signalling that you have been feared.

    Plagued enemies seem to be closest to the 'mist' you describe so this may or not be it. The plague from these enemies is green and very noticeable. You should be able to tell if this is what you are talking about or not when this happens again.
