Elite Creatures are unique enemy types in Game of Thrones: Conquest. They can be identified by the health bar over their pawn on the battle map, indicating that they must be bested in combat several times to fully defeat. Each victory you win against an Elite Creature will decrease its health bar. Once their health bar is fully depleted the Elite Creature will be defeated.
Each victory against an Elite Creature will also earn you a reward. Your rewards and the current remaining health of the Elite Creature will be displayed in your Battle Reports after the battle.
If you manage to strike the final blow to an Elite Creature fully depleting its health bar you will receive an even greater reward! Be warned though, other players can send marches to the same Elite Creatures and attempt to steal your victory so timing is everything.
Some Elite enemies will have weaknesses or strengths to certain troop types, make sure to check out the enemy and event descriptions for more information!
