Champions are stronger than the tier they are located at. The bigger the effort, the bigger the spoils! They give more experience and gold than the monsters from the same tier. Note that auto off doesn't affect a champion's reward, it's the same if your auto is on or off. Upon killing a champion you get a global saying "NAME has killed a CHAMPIONNAME". All champions have a chance to drop a Black Diamond.
Certain tiers have a champion that resides on a specific tile in a map. Upon entering that tile, you'll get the option to look for the champion and kill it. You can only kill the champion if you haven't beating it some time ago, meaning there's a respawn timer.
|Forest Shadow (Sandy Beach)||Scorpio (Pit)||Bone Crawler (Swamp)|
|Scrinder (Thicket)||Corrupt Nieler (Pillar Room)|
Some champions prefer not to settle down in a lair, but roam the lands in search for riches... AND BLOOD! A wandering champion can be encountered in the appropriate tiers when moving or searching for a fight.
|Fire Golem||Rine Beast||Rough Winder|
