Diablo III

Diablo III Achievements

Never Seen that Before

Kill one of the unique enemies listed in the Never Seen That Before Challenge.  

While in game, press , go to Challenges, then Triumps and scroll down to the Never Seen That Before Challenge for a full list of the Elite names to look out for. The rather long list shows off the many special Elites that are generally a bit more powerful than their lesser Elite counterparts, and can only be found (by chance) in a set location. It has been my experience that Drury Brown is the most common of the lot, appearing in one of the three tombs you need to search through for the Skeleton Kings crown in in the first half of Act I. Although, chances are you will get at least one of these guys over the course of your time spent getting the other achievements (probably quite a few on the list, actually).

As a side note, if you are going for the Staff of Herding to enter Whimsyshire (Cow Level), you will need to farm items, one of which is dropped by Chiltara. Chances are you will get this achievement naturally, but if not you can get two birds with one stone by killing Chiltara in Act III.

All you gotta do is kill one unique. At least that's what this achievement tells you. So it's nothing like in PC version.

Actually this achiev can be gotten with relative ease. I expect most people will accidentally get it in one if their first 3 playthroughs.

I found mine in less than 12 hours of game play. Didn't even know I earned it until it unlocked on my screen. Pretty much a freebie.

Found near "The Crumbling Vault" in Act II in the Stinging Winds/Lost Caravan area. I don't even know what enemy I killed because I shot at it off-screen.

"The Crumbling Vault" has a guard outside. He warns that you are about to enter a timed dungeon.

#16: You must have run past the very first monsters (before you reach Tristram) as they are normal.

Thanks for all the info. The most common place looks likes it is in Act 1, in 1 of the 3 defiled crypts. I just finished that section, but will run through Act 1 again if achievement doesn't pop by the end of Act 1.
