Is it intended that stronger versions of monsters appear in doom?

    Sometimes in doom I fight stronger versions of Rotting Corpse, Devourer of Souls, Vampire Bat, etc.. They got like 5 times the hp. Is this intended and if so, do you get more reward points for them?
    The same happens with the guard captains in the Blackthorn Dungeon btw.

    Aha, I noticed this too. Doing the Gauntlet yesterday, some of the undead summoned by the Dark Fathers appeared to be much tougher that normal.

    Yup, it's the same as the non-tameable stuff in Blackthorn. Reduced resistances, higher HP, similar skills (as far as I know)
