Special Monsters Spawn
In Zoltyum - Age of Cataclysm in very spawn you have the risk to face custom and stronger variations of usual creatures, these special creatures are usually the most powerful warriors of each race so their strength is different than usual. Killing special monsters of this system will reward you with a larger exp pool and possibly larger loot pool.
There are 3 classes in this system

Elites: Very powerful foes, usually too hard to kill by a single player, these monsters are rare to be found in a spawn, the yield lots of experience and will provide special loot.
Champions: This sort of monsters are extremely powerful, they are anomalies in the space time, born from the chaotic void itself, these monsters are very, very rare to find and they are considered mini bosses, soloing one of these creatures is extremely hard, a small to large team is required. Killing these creatures will grant 50x more experience than a normal spawn monster and it will also drop unique loot sent to the reward chest.

World Boss Raids
World Raids are special events that happen once every 8-10 hours, in which you have to do certain tasks in order to spawn the ultimate boss at the end of the raid. You will be rewarded properly by helping to take down the boss. Dying inside world raids will not result in death penalty.
This stage is the first contact with the boss realm. Here, you will need to slay a certain number of creatures so the passageway for the next stage gets cracked open. Once it opens, you may proceed to the next stage.
This stage consists in sacrificing a specific item obtained from the stage 2 creatures’ loot. You need to sacrifice a certain amount of the items in order to proceed to the final stage, as instructed below. After the final stage is unlocked, a portal will be opened at the beginning of the stage 1 that will lead into the second stage.
