    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.

    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?

    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! :D I don't remember spiders though? Where have you seen Spiders in Act 1?

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

    Spiders aren't in the beta. They've shown the spider level and its enemies in several clips over the years, including many of the recent skill videos. We know it's in A1 cuz of data mining.

    EDIT: Another enemy -- Ghouls. You could fight those in the recent beta bonus areas. Also the Goats that chuck spears and I think there are bow goats too. Dunno if those count as a separate type though.

    Aah. I'd seen the spiders, of course, but didn't know we had confirmation they were in A1. This is pretty darn impressive so far. I would absolutely love it if they keep it up, with 30+ new monster types per act!

    Also: Imps, Ghostly Gravediggers and Young Quill Fiends. And Activated Pillars and those crawling torso generating corpse piles whose name I forget.

    Jeez...the wiki really is seriously out of date...I don't recall Young Quill Fiends. What's the difference between them and the regular Quill Fiends and where do you see them?

    D2 is nothing compared to the awesomeness that is D3, can't wait to finally uninstall it.

    They're like normal quill fiends only smaller. They die pretty quickly so if there's a more fundamental difference I haven't seen it. I think they're only found in one of the events in one of the cellars on Old Tristram Road. So far at least.

    I saw 4 superuniques in Fields of Misery:

    Monster Type: Name - Description

    Tree: "The Old Man" - Rooter of Corpses
    Ghoul: "Burrow Bile" - Mauler of the Fields
    Beast: "Charger" - The Ground Shall Tremble
    Goatman: "Melmak the Swift" - Quick as Lightning
