Mutators are global effects applied to all monsters or players in a given area. Each one strengthens monsters/players in one way, but weakens them in another.

Mutators are present in various side-areas, boss rooms and Challenge dungeons, as well as The Crucible and The Shattered Realm.

Mutators are applied randomly, and come in two types: those which affect the player, and those which affect enemies. An area can have either or both. World areas will have up to three mutators present, The Crucible and Shattered Realm up to five.

Table of Mutators[]

Stats are given for Normal/Elite/Ultimate. "X" values are for flat damage which is level-dependent.
