There are four types of monsters. Normal, champions, rare, and bosses.

Normal Monsters

Normal monsters have black nameplates and have the default traits of the given monster type.

Champion Monsters

Champion monsters are easy to identify because they will always have traits displayed under their health bars. Depending on the difficulty they have one, two, or three champion traits on normal, nightmare, and hell difficulties, respectively. These traits are randomly assigned and can be assigned to any normal monster. Champions have enhanced health and reward higher levels of experience. They also guarantee at least two magical items.

Rare Monsters

Rare monsters are slightly harder than normal mobs, but do not have traits like champions. Rare monsters have a large amount of hit points and have a much higher chance to drop unique loot. They are often found at the end of quests and they can randomly appear while in any zone.


Bosses are the most powerful monsters in NeverGrind. Bosses have innate traits that make effects like fear and stun have a much shorter duration. They're also completely immune to some effects like charm. They drop anywhere from 3-6 items per kill. Revenant Viston has a -1 item drop penalty since his quest is so short. Bosses have the highest rare loot drop chance in the game. In particular, the first time you kill a boss on each difficulty there is a "first kill" loot bonus that sets the unique drop rates very high.

NeverGrind has the following bosses in the game:
