Diablo Wiki

The Oppressor is a re-occurring monster type from Diablo II where they were known as the Megademon. In addition to retaining their devastating signature flame breath attack they were given new abilities such as a quick and powerful slam using their new mace as well as well as a ludicrously fast charge. A Pack of Oppressors can make short work of melee players using their Flame Breath. Ranged characters have to watch out for their Mega Charge which causes knockback. The odd slam can also knock you back in the worst of times leaving you vulnerable to other sources of damage. It is best to use skills which have high flinch chance against them as most of their attacks can be interrupted.
