Afflicted Monsters serve as Sunbreak’s biggest challenge.

After defeating Gaismagorm, the endgame of Sunbreak will be available and one of the core aspects is taking on Afflicted Monsters.

All Afflicted Monsters will be faster and much more aggressive than the first time you fought them, which can turn even the most basic monsters into formidable foes. You’ll be rewarded with the highest rarity weapons in the game after defeating them, however, so it’s more than worth the challenge.
