Elites in Diablo 4 are special Enemies that posses one more Affixes which makes them much stronger than a regular foe. These Affixes are randomly selected from a bast pool providing with a fresh and challenging experience on each encounter. Elites take the shape and attack patterns of a regular Enemy but can have a distinctive color. They are always guarded by minions which are weak but have the same affixes as the Elite they are guarding but with weaker effects.
Elites in Diablo 4
To overcome the toughest enemies, it is important to understand the various Elite Affixes. These affixes can greatly alter an Elite's behavior and make them more challenging to defeat. Elites can have up to three affixes, and they may also be accompanied by powerful minions with increased health. With knowledge of these affixes, you can better prepare and strategize for battle.
- Cold Affixes: These elemental Elite Affixes look to maximize zone coverage to slow you down in any way possible.
- Fire Affixes: These elemental Elite Affixes are pretty straight forward. They deal huge burst damage.
- Lightning Affixes: These elemental Elite Affixes like to do lots of small tick damage across a wide area.
- Poison Affixes:These elemental Elite Affixes like to deal damage over time. Shown as green in your health globe, taking damage will gradually decrease your life.
- Shadow Affixes: These elemental affixes are looking to make you lose control and blind you from the battlefield.
- Utility Affixes: These are Elite Affixes that are more crowd control and defense based with no elemental damage attached.
- Minions: Elites can spawn with Minions that are also considered Elite but don't inherit their affixes. Instead, they simply have increased Life values.
