Why speed 114? That is a peculiar number.

I like peculiar numbers. Lots of monsters in RB have speeds in-between the round numbers for fine tuning, and more tweaks will be made obviously. (I don't often get to the dl40s or beyond to test the deeper monsters.)

So basically everybody else is doing it, so should Vanilla. Only Vanilla can do it better, right? I don't like the flavour text of the variants.

I like Nick's suggestion of waiting for the water implementation. This would make the Watcher unique feel slightly new and special.

I also think he should treasure drop. I hate uniques who don't drop.
