Elite Zones

Elite Zones are 'end-game' hunting areas for high level characters. Some of the highest level monsters in the game will appear in Elite Zones, marked in the game by large red flags outside of the area. Killing 'elite monsters' inside these areas will give you special opportunity for exclusive loot!
