Elite monster spawned

An elite monster spawned

Elite monsters are more powerful versions of normal monsters that have a chance to spawn upon the death of one of its lower-levelled variants.

Most elite monster kills reward players with 220% extra Slayer experience, if on task, compared to what would be earned from the normal monster. They also give three rolls on the monster's drop table. If on a Slayer assignment, one elite monster is guaranteed to spawn (unless the task was obtained before the update on 27 July 2015). Otherwise, elite monsters follow a spawn rate of 1/1000, regardless if the player is on a task or not. Once an elite monster has spawned it is only attackable by the spawning player for three minutes (unless they move a significant distance away), after which anyone may attack it.

Many elite monsters tend to have triple the maximum hit of their normal counterparts.

There are elite versions of the following monsters:
