Diablo 3 Visual Status Indicator

Bashiok informed some visual mechanics on certain monsters that may offer some valuable info about them in the shape of a status indicator. In this case, the Skeletal Shieldmen are used as an example.
Bashiok: The glow on the shields of Skeletal Shieldmen actually serves a couple purposes. First it's an easy and quick way to identify them from other skeletons, that's a given, but the second function is that it's actually a status indicator. Obviously as you hit them they'll block the hits with their shield, but they can only block so much damage. As they block damage the glow dims. It's a useful tool that visually indicates how close their shields are to breaking.
