Difficulty Grades

There are currently 3 types of grades for monsters:

  • Common
  • Elite (red features)
  • Nightmare (dark grey features)

Damage, health, movement speed, action speed all increase with each grade bump, these changes are separated with a "/" in the tables below. Meanwhile, loot table odds will be increased for high rarity items and decreased for low tier items.

Elite monsters have 10% additional action speed and Nightmare monsters have 20% additional action speed.

Furthermore, monsters inherit special attacks or properties on Nightmare grade.

General Information

Flying type monsters can travel through the air and over terrain, while floating type units do not, they basically act as grounded units.

Monsters are subject to the body part damage modifier system, so hitting them in the head does more damage, while hitting their limbs does less.

Unlike player characters, monsters' shields are always active, even during their attack animations.

Monsters have the ability to destroy doors with either melee attacks, arrows or fireballs.
