Elite Monsters differ from the usual Sub-Boss/Boss/EpicBoss hierarchy.
They appear as a normal monster until you engage them in combat and slay them.
Elite Monsters Attributes
(they may not all apply to each Elite)
- Have increased difficulty through higher HP and Damage
- Provide a high exp multiplier (so if the normal variant gives 100, this may give 2,000 exp)
- Mass Item/Potion Drop (as well as a higher likelihood of dropping better items)
- Drop with a high gold multiplier (so if the normal variant averages 200-300 gold, this may give up to 5,000 gold)
- Can inflict any one of the poison types that are in game.
