    OMG - terrifying new monster!

    OK, so here's something I've never seen before, and probably will never see again. I was doing some countess runs in NM, and on my way to the tower I saw a clump of five strangely colored blood hawk nests. "Hmm," I thought, "I've never seen blood hawk nests clumped up like that... and the color is odd... could that be... no, no way."

    But I had to investigate, and sure enough, when my cursor passed over them, I beheld the horror: beneath the monster name was the threatening word "Minion."

    That's right... a blood hawk nest BOSS PACK! :flip:

    Anyone ever seen that before? I've played this game since day 1, and that's the first time for me...

    I saw one in the early days as well, and haven't seen one since.
    Makes me wonder if Demon Huts or whatever they're called could spawn in A5.

    Saw one a while back

    They only spawn bloodhawk minions though, I strafed 'em. I think the boss nest might have been stone skined/PI, it took a while for my Witchyzon kill it even after Amp triggered.

    Well, glad it wasn't just me ;)

    What I'd really like to see now, though, is a boss pack of those Act 2 mummy-spitting sarcophagi. That could actually be dangerous... it can take a while to kill one of those coffins, let alone a boss pack of them... and if they were fe/ce? Yikes... silly, but dangerous.

    That's what it was. It was funny though, kill a bunch of minions, ah, where is the boss? Did that a couple times before finding the boss nest pack.

    imagine a boss pack of the lightning orbs in arcane... two of them can be nasty enough for a char with not enough res with that huge range... just imagine 5 of them, one with conviction... :surprise:

    or the poison spitting swamp dwellers in a3, like by the council. a boss pack of them could be nasty with that knockback poison...

    I've ran into a couple boss packs of Crow's nest. I think the thing was cursed and the nests were spitting out so many crows.. it was like Attack of the Birds. :lol:

    I don't think so. The difference between the Crow's Nest and the Demon Hut is that the Crow's Nest is spawned as though it were a monster while the Demon Hut is spawned as though it were a terrain feature.

    Generally said the Crow's Nest is an immobile monster that shoots crows. It dies like one and it drops like one.

    The Demon Hut is a destructible terrain feature that spawns imps.
