What Are Elite Bosses?

Bosses Encountered in the Field

Elite Bosses.jpg

Elite Bosses are enemies that has a major difficulty spike compared to the enemies you find in the field. In turn, they also offer generous rewards. We highly recommend grouping up to take them down much faster but taking them on alone can also be a fun challenge in its own right.

Consumes Original Resin to Get Rewards

To obtain the rewards from defeating Elite Bosses, you will need to consume 40 Original Resins. Make sure that your resins are filled before taking on these challenge lest you fail to obtain the rewards.

Respawns Incredibly Fast

Elite bosses also respawns at a fast rate. But due to the nature of Original Resin, fighting them repeatedly may not be the best thing to do.

However, staying in the area will not cause boss to respawn. it is recommended to head to a far distance or do something else if you wish to farm Boss materials or simply wish to fight them again.

Drops Better Loot On Higher World Levels

Elite Bosses will generally drop better loots on higher world levels. Be it character ascension materials or even rare Artifacts! Make sure to only fight bosses for ascension materials early on to avoid wasting Original Resin.
