    Is it possible they designed these to have more HP's but increased the damage done per strike? Or because they strengthened them in some areas they allowed more damage to be dealt per hit, or possibly a combination of both?

    Negative damage weighting/padding is definitely a thing.

    According to Ixix the added critical damage is a bug.

    Flinty - dunno what it does, went down quick. Did some weird stuff that I never saw dogmatists do, like giggling. Looks like it also casted some weird stuff, even right as it died, that never successfully warded.

    This seems pretty stupid if there’s not even a tiny award for killing these, even if it’s like 100 instant exp or something.

    If they kill afk scripters, that is a reward enough for me.

    It will take most scripters like 30 seconds to adjust their scripts for these.

    The motivation surely isn't for scripting. It's pretty obvious this would do little more than cause a few minutes of inconvenience for updates.

    Frenzied are likely using some sort of berserk effect. Probably have higher AS and mstrike or something.
