This is a full list of monsters players can encounter in Daemonheim.

OverviewEdit

About 4/5 of the rooms one opens in Daemonheim contain one or more monsters. A party with one person will encounter a maximum of three monsters in a room, and this number is increased by one for each additional party member. Some rooms (like several puzzle rooms, and occasionally normal rooms) do not contain any monsters at all. Monsters are determined by several factors listed below.

  • The player's combat level - A level 4 player won't encounter a level 100 zombie, but a level 100 player might encounter a level 4 zombie, although rarely on its own, unless, for example, the player encounters the spikes room, which strangely makes all the monster have extremely low levels. This is because players will get annihilated by ranging/maging monsters while traversing the deadly spikes.
  • The dungeon complexity, size, and depth - On Complexity one, even a level 100 player will rarely encounter a monster with a level higher than, for example, 60, particularly on earlier floors. Bigger dungeons tend to yield higher level monsters, as do larger complexities and deeper floors.
  • The number of monsters in the room - If there is only one monster, it would have a high combat level (say 100 for a level 95 player). The more monsters there are, the lower their levels are (for that same player a level 6, level 45 and level 29 combination would be appropriate).
  • The number of players in the dungeon - Players will tend to encounter stronger monsters in dungeons designed for more people. Players may on rare occasions even run into monsters stronger than the boss.
  • The type of room - An empty room would have stronger monsters than a room with a puzzle that requires reflexes and similar things.

The only doors in Daemonheim that require all monsters in the room to be killed are marked as Guardian doors. Players often kill them, however, for their drops, including food, herbs, charms, and experience.

Monster ListEdit

*Removes concealment of a shadow-silk hood.

All FloorsEdit

Several monsters are found in every floor, and are very common:

Monster name Combat level Attack style(s) Weakness(es) Affected by Shadow Silk Hood? Other notes/tactics
Forgotten warrior 2-202 Melee Magic weakness icon Magic (varies) Yes Use the respective weakness unless you have high melee stats and a powerful weapon. A Primal spear can easily obliterate most warriors with ease. 
Forgotten ranger 2-198 Ranged Slash weakness icon Slash Yes These enemies do not hit as high for their level as warriors do, but are very accurate to compensate. They are weak to slash attacks, though high-damage equipment can be substituted.
Forgotten mage 2-198 Magic Arrow weakness icon Arrows No* Uses various spells depending on their combat level and equipment. Celestial mages are generally annoying due to their very high defence against all styles.
Bovimastyx 2, 3, 6, 9, 12, 14, 18, 20, 23, 28 Melee Crush weakness icon Crush Not aggressive These monsters are non-aggressive, and do not need to be slain if a Guardian door is present. On members' worlds, they can be trapped using the Hunter skill, which gives the player who skins it several hides.
Giant rat 2-100 Melee Earth weakness icon Earth spells No Generally the least priority to kill as it does not deal accurate damage.
Mysterious shade 2-184 Ranged and Magic Crush weakness icon Crush No Very easy to defeat after the Evolution of Combat.

PuzzleEdit

Players may also encounter the following monsters on every floor in a puzzle room. Rooms with any of the following monsters will always have at least one Guardian door.
