An Abominable

Abominables are creatures that were found in the Northern Steppes.


Abominables are a slightly different breed from Wendigos, but are similar in nature. They are large but agile creatures often found in the caves surrounding the mountain range of Kae Huron. The main difference that separates the Abominable from the Wendigo is the temperature it can survive in, and prefers cold climates. None have ever spotted an Abominable in an area where the temperature wasn't below freezing. The Abominable were previously known to coexist peacefully with humans, avoiding contact whenever possible. However, chaos tainted them, as they are now quick to anger and attack with huge, sweeping blows of their massive claws. Once provoked, they do not relent until their opponent is slain or they themselves have fallen.[1]


Abominables are found in Act V of Diablo II, specifically within the Crystalline Passage. They are sometimes accompanied by a Dragon Skull, a unique version of the Abominable. All Abominable can use Bash, and in groups they can prove to be fatal to a character.

  • Their name may be taken from the mythological Abominable Snowman, since the snowmen are described as being shaggy and huge, much like the Abominables themselves.
