    Earliest Possible Physical Immune?

    So having lost my hardcore TS/Trapper hybrid last night I decided to start a new one. While ripping through the Dark Wood I encountered this.

    Now maybe I'm a n00b, but I've definitely never seen a PI monster so early in the game. Is this unusual or am I a buffoon? Possibly both.

    You can also get Immune to Physical ghosts in act 1 normal, if they spawn stone skin.

    My earliest PI was in the Jail, a ghost. As I was playing a Barbarian, it proved impossible to kill, and I had to park it. The Dark Wood is very early to find a PI, I've got to say. The earliest immune of any kind, I do believe, is Bishibosh, who is Fire Immune. Personally, I wish there wasn't even the possibility of Immunes in Act I Normal, it's way to early for any of that stuff.

    It's because he spawned with stone skin.

    Personally, I'm not bothered when the unique monsters are immune. That's not much of a problem, but I don't do full clears most of the time.

    Personally, I think immunities are a crutch for game designers who have failed to make the spells tactically distinct enough for players to willingly use different spells situationally, and so need to add something to force them. Monsters that certain characters have no hope of killing is the most immediately obvious drawback of this approach.

    but in this game, I wish there are more immunities. IMO, a single skilled build should be always the kind you wish to chanllenge yourself, not to pwnz everything. look at D2 now, blizzard sorc, cheesy din are perfect example of lack of immunities.

    back to origional post, I think the earliest I saw was a ghost boss down the jail too.

    Sing it, brother!

    And to answer the original question, I don't think I've ever encountered a PI before act 5 normal before.

    Welcome back bunny long time no see. :wave:

    My earliest was a ghost in the countess tower, its the stone skin that causes it.

    I also agree that physical immune by the dark woods is quite early some people especially untwinked will find it hard to attack a PI that early, imagine how I felt when my passive barb stumbled onto this ghost PI in normal act 1, atleast I had a merc that dealt some fire damage, and an axe with a chippy in it.

    Huh? Didn´t you have a merc with Fire/Cold Arrows? Was Charsi and Gheed all out of elemental weapons? No poison potions around?

    Unique dark lords spawning with stone skin in the Durance (normal) are another common example of physical immune monsters spawning before act 5.
