AT THIS TIME, THIS ARTICLE HAS BECOME A SANDBOX. PLEASE SEE THE INDIVIDUAL ARTICLES FOR HENCHMEN Information




Overview

Henchmen is the collective name for the various pets that Masterminds are able to summon and control.

There are actually 3 entity 'ranks' that can be summoned by the Mastermind, each rank is summoned by a different power available at levels 1, 12 and 26.


Henchmen Minions are available at Level 1. At first the Mastermind can only summon one even level Henchman Minion. At level 6, the same power can summon 2 Henchmen Minions, but now these are summoned one level lower than the Mastermind. At level 18, the same power can summon 3 Henchmen Minions, but now these are summoned 2 levels lower than the mastermind.

Henchmen Lieutenants are available at level 12. Like the Minion summon power, at first the Mastermind can only summon one even level Henchman Lieutenant. At level 24 the same power can summon 2 Henchmen Lieutenants but now these are summoned one level lower than the Mastermind. Although you can only ever summon a maximum of 2 Henchmen Lieutenants, these hit harder than the Minions and have higher base HP, in addition to never spawning more than one level under the Mastermind's level.

Henchmen Boss are available at Level 26. Only one Henchman Boss can be summoned at any given time but this Henchman will always be summoned at an even level and have higher base damage and HP than either the Henchmen Minion or Henchmen Lieutenant.

Although not technically a Henchman power, the Mastermind Thugs power Gang War creates Pet class, low-level Thugs with basic weaponry.

Thugs TargetedSummonMob.png Gang War

Calls a gang of 10 or so Thug Posse to come to your aid for a brief while. Posse are not like your true Henchman. They cannot be given direct commands, nor will they appear in your Pet Window. You must select an enemy target to attack first before calling these Thugs. Posse are many, but they are very weak, and are only equipped with the most basic weapons. Although they will follow you, they are not as loyal as your Henchmen, and they will only stick around for a few minutes before taking off.
