Q u o t e: Well to be perfectly honest all of these shots are set up. Generally you're probably not going to run into that many at one time. So a couple dispersed within a sea of every other monster, you don't see the stark repetition. I don't think normal spawning conditions would have that many facing you at once, especially because they're kind of tough.
Sneaky! Well obviously it is set up to some degree since there is no hero to be seen! Unless you figure that corpse in the center is the remains of our hero :O
The visual similarities won't be that noticeable or hindering on smaller mobs like skeletons and the like (half the time I didn't even notice my Necromancer's pets had different armour or weapons, for example) but it really is noticeable with these big guys. Nice to know that they won't clutter rooms and show off their obvious identical nature.
Thanks for the reply Bashiok, now go whip those dev's into shape and tell them we need LAN and/or Oceanic servers :D
