Kuro Games' Wuthering Waves has a wide variety of enemies that players can defeat for loot, including Elite enemies, which are far more bloodthirsty compared to standard Tacet Discords.

There are sixteen special mini-boss enemies within the depths of Solaris-3, all characterized by the signature red mist surrounding them. Not only could they be harder to outdo, but they could also be hard to find!

Wuthering Waves Elite Enemies Explained

The rule of thumb in the Wuthering Waves is that the higher your SOL3 Phase, the stronger the enemies become. Elite enemies tend to exhibit a much greater level of aggression than those you encountered early on, but they don't get any stronger during your SOL Phase. This means that the difficulty of these specific enemies does not increase as you progress through the game or reach higher levels within the SOL Phase.

Therefore, by not scaling with the SOL Phase, the difficulty of these enemies becomes predictable and easier to outflank. If you're still hesitant about putting a definitive end to them, you can always choose to level up your characters and raise the level of your Resonators before attempting to go up against them.

Daily respawn cycles do not apply to Elite enemies but usually require several days to reappear. The duration doesn't follow a fixed pattern and will vary within a range of days. Still, they grant a four or five-star Echo when defeated, so it's time well spent if you're on the hunt for elite drops. They also offer trophies when you defeat them for the first time.

Here's a list of the hidden spots where all 16 Elite enemies can be found in Wuthering Waves.

  1. Carapace: Engine Zero (Level 25): This enemy can be found to the east of Qichi Village, beyond an old outpost building.
  2. Viridblaze Saurian (Level 30): Located southeast of Loong’s Gaze Suburbs, close to skeletal remains.
