It is not clear that the monster always spawns as a rare monster or not, thus the infobox on the right assume it is a normal monster. Note that rare monsters have more than 2 monster explicit modifiers which affect the damage and life even more.

If want to use the infobox for spectre , use lower part of the infobox which is for spectre (indicated by the metadata id), set the monster as minion (and untick map monster) as well as proper monster level (e.g. lv 20 Raise SpectreRaise SpectreSpell, Minion
