To balance out the player's skills
, now the Monsters can have one of 9 different powers:
, Magic Breath
, Magic Shield
, and Undead
Many monsters don't have any powers, but you'll encounter more monsters with powers as you go farther in the game. Like player's skills, each monster that has a power only manages to use that power a certain percentage of the time. As you go farther in the game, monsters tend to be better at their powers, and to have more powers; however, monsters never have over a 75% chance of using any of their powers, and can have at most 4 of the 9 different powers.
