    Let's compare superunique numbers between D2 A1 and the D3 beta

    I think D3 will be a longer game than D2 in general (despite the developers saying otherwise) but it seems like D3 has a higher density of superuniques too.

    Diablo 3 Beta SUs:

    9 total.

    1. Sarkoth (Dark Cellar)
    2. Wretched Queen
    3. Captain Daltyn (I know the spelling is supposed to be old tymey but it reminds me of a yuppie soccer mom's kid)
    4. Mira Eamon
    5. Manglemaw
    6. Lord Dunhyld <-- ghost woman quest
    7. Chancellor Eamon <-- for the crown
    8. Jondar, I mean JONDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR
    9. Skeleton King

    And that doesn't count easter eggs like the Data Miner or Lloigor the Crazed. Add those to the total if you want. My only minor complaint is that pretty much all of them but the Wretched Queen appear in dungeons. SUs in overworlds are fun. I think the Weeping Hollow could use one.

    Diablo 2 Act 1 SUs:

    14 total.

    1. Corpsefire
    2. Bishibosh
    3. Bonebreaker
    4. Coldcrow
    5. Blood Raven
    6. Rakanishu
    7. Treehead Woodfist
    8. Griswold
    9. The Countess
    10. Flamespike the Crawler -- removed in LOD but I'll count him anyway.
    11. Pitspawn Fouldog
    12. Bone Ash
    13. The Smith
    14. Andariel

    Good idea - the ratio is pretty heartening.

    Not bad from one third of an Act.

    Does it make up for how little non-superunique masters randomly spawn?

    I don't find.

    Wut? From the videos I've seen, unique and champion packs spawn all the time.

    I can say personally I have fought against 2 superunique randoms in the world. One in the Weeping Hollow surprisingly, probably level 8? It was difficult for a Lv8 Barb.. and the other was in the next zone, Fields of Misery, and encountered one that was a huge tree. I don't recall either names xP

    I'd be interested to see someone do this for individual monster types (ie. Fallen, Grotesques, ect). Anyone up for that once beta is back up?

    ETA: I found these on the wiki.

    Bats
    Cultist
    Crawling Torso
    Dark Vessel
    Dark Demon
    Ghostly Orb
    Gnarled Walker
    Goatman

    Savage Beast
    Scavenger
    Skeleton
    Skeletal Archer
    Skeletal Executioner
    Skeletal Shieldman
    Skeletal Summoner
    The Unburied
    Walking Corpse
    Wraith
    Zombie

    Total: 22

    The list of monsters in D2 Act 1 (per arreat summit)
    Fallen (Demon)
    Fallen Shaman (Demon)
    Spike Fiend (Animal)
    Zombie (Undead)
    Wendigo (Animal)

    Re: Let's compare superunique numbers between D2 A1 and the D3 beta

    D3 A1 also has the quill fiend, bat nest, treasure goblin (he counts right?), the withermoth, wretched mother, and at least two different sorts of spider enemies (the small ones and the bigger ones). And there are two more monsters associated with cultists besides the dark demon: activated vessels and berserkers. I wonder when we'll first see the cultist pets in the real game.

    So that bumps the D3 A1 monster total up to 31.

    Somebody needs to get on that wiki update! Haha...thanks for the extra info, that's awesome! I don't remember spiders though? Where have you seen Spiders in Act 1?
