Players will often find Elite Enemies in the open world while exploring, or in Domains and the Spiral Abyss.

These enemies are stronger than Common Enemies, and are generally found in sparsely throughout the overworld, either with other Elite Enemies or by themselves. Some Elite Enemies share some drops with Common Enemies, but most Elite Enemies generally have their own unique drop of ascension materials. While some Common Enemies are on par with Elite Enemies in terms of attacks and strength (such as Kairagi and high-leveled Eremites), they are not considered Elite Enemies. At low World Levels, elite enemies have also been noted to drop 1 and 2 star Weapons. Some Elite Enemies will serve as a mini-boss in certain quests.

Note: There are a limited number of spawns per day, which will reset daily according to whatever the Daily Reset Time is for the player's server/region.

Elite Enemies generally drop 5 Mora per level, although the values vary based on difficulty - weak Elite Enemies, like Mitachurls, cap at 200, moderates like adult Rifthounds cap at 400, while particularly strong and/or rares like Lawachurls cap at 600 Mora. Rocky Avildsen and Liam drop 50 Mora per level and cap at 3000. They drop three times as much Character EXP compared to Common Enemies at their level bracket. All Elite Enemies may also drop the following Artifacts:

Drops from Elite Enemies are capped at 400 per day; after this, any Elite Enemies killed afterwards will not award any experience or drops, and is not restricted to World Level.
