Diablo III Monster[edit]

The Brickhouse is a very big, vaguely crablike monster with two massive armored forearms that were made for ripping apart little creatures like human beings. The monster's face has six eyes and a toothy mouth with three tentacles on its lower jaw. Earlier designs of the Brickhouse look more Cthulhuesque. The term Brickhouse is a nickname by Blizzard game designers given to a new monster shown in the Blizzcon 2010 Crafting Sanctuary video. The real game name for the monster has not been given yet.

Brickhouse Abilities[edit]

The Brickhouse monster has two enlarged forearms which aid the monster in protecting against frontal attacks. The monster appears to be immune to all attacks when the heavily armored arms are clamped together. The monster unclamps these arms while attacking and when moving around.
