Brigands are human enemies encountered in Diablo III. "The tragedies in these lands have left many restless spirits in their wake...and they demand retribution. These spirits will take out their vengeance on any unsuspecting individual who may pass...for they believe that the blood of the living will yet restore the lives that were ripped away from them."

— Deckard Cain

INGAME - Brigands are humans, and are only armed with their blades, which can serve as both melee and thrown weapons. They do not possess any special skills, except sheer numbers. Nearly all of them are quest or event specific, trying to hunt Lyndon down for his treachery, and are members of the Thieves Guild. They are only encountered in Act I and Act V. From time to time, they may accompany a Rare Monster in Nephalem Rifts or Halls of Agony.

In the Guild Hideout, one may find Assassins, who wield bows, foregoing their melee attack for increased ranged damage output.

UNDEAD BRINGAND- Ghastly Gravedigger: Appears in Act I in the Defiled Crypt. Has a knockback effect. Ghostly Murderer: As above. Many of them are encountered in Act I tombs in form of Ghosts, being absolutely identical to normal Brigands except for they are classified as Undead.
