What Are Elites In Diablo 4?
Elites are very rare monsters who have an extra affix other than the already existing two affixes.
These monsters are also a good source of experience for the players.
However, since the monsters contain some strong affixes, going up against them can be harder than other monsters.
In addition to having more affixes, Elite monsters will also have more health than other rare monsters.
Types Of Affixes For Elites In Diablo 4
Players can come across Elites with a multitude of affixes. Here is a list of all the affixes that the players can come across;
1. Cold Affixes
Elites can have various cold affixes, such as Cold Enchanted, Chilling Wind, Frozen and Tempest.
These affixes allow the Elites to freeze the enemy, throw ice spikes, create ice pillars, and call forth a wall of icy wind.
2. Fire Affixes
Elite can have various Fire affixes, such as Fire Enchanted, Explosive, and Mortar.
These affixes allow the Elites to throw out fireballs, exploding fireballs and Fire four projectiles.
3. Lightning Affixes
Elites can have several lighting affixes, such as Lightning Enchanted, Electrified Obelisks, Shock Lance, and Teleporter.
Among these, the Electrified Obelisks are something players need to be very wary about.
4. Poison Affixes
Elites can have several poison affixes, such as Poison Enchanted and Plaguebearer.
These affixes allow the Elites to produce a pool of poison when they attack the players and a pool of poison when they die.
5. Shadow Affixes
Elites can have several shadow affixes, such as Shadow Enchanted and Terrifying.
These affixes allow the Elites to create a clone of themselves or summon two pentagrams under the players to cause the debuff fear.
Other than elemental affixes, Elites can possess non-elemental affixes. However, we will not discuss them in this article.
What Are The Drops From Elite In Diablo 4?
Elite in Diablo 4 drops can range from normal items to Unique items.
Furthermore, players can target and farm certain items from Elite monsters.
Here is the table containing the Elite monsters and their unique item drops;
|Blood-Cursed Band Ring
|Deep Forest (Scosglen)
|Blind Man's Bell Amulet
|The Shrouded Moors

Here we can see that players can target farm certain unique and legendary items.
However, players cannot expect every unique and Legendary item to be farmable through bosses.
The game heavily focuses on randomly generated numbers to ensure the item drop is fair for every player.
But the game does have various items that have abysmal drop rates.
The Bottom Line
Elites are enemies who are strong but also rewarding.
However, not all Elites will drop great loots since RNG for items is something Action RPGs excel at the most.
In addition to great loot, Elites are some of the game’s most dangerous enemies.
Thus, whenever you run a dungeon, make sure not to overload it with various affixes.
Hopefully, this article can give you a brief explanation of Elite affixes and their drops.
