Exactly.Dragonwriter said:That doesn't matter. If you read the excerpt from WotC, you see that they just want minions to occupy the PCs a little bit and make the characters expend resources. So what if they die? Anyway, isn't that what most villains do - throw servants at the PCs to mess with them and take time?
phindar said:I think the "hit" method penalizes people with high damage output. Power Attack/Great Cleave is designed to mow down unimportant minions, but would be useless against a 2 hit minion.
hornedturtle said:If they are killing the minions too quickly you just need more minions!
Ogrork the Mighty said:Agreed, but it drives up the XP. I'm looking for a way to adapt the 4E minion rules to 3E, but you can't just do a straight lift due to different mechanics of the rule systems (specifically, iterative attacks).
