4 Attack 40 Health - Reward: 3 Experience, 1 Find Items Potion (You found the yeti, now let the yeti find other things).

Rare Monsters:
• Great Red Dragon - A flaming fiery beast with one molten eye that gleams with the fires of.... well, you know. This beast is highly magical. Your magic staff will only do half of it's normal damage however your sword has an additional 2 attack against this beast.
15 Attack 50 Health - Reward: 30 Experience, Orb of Fire (Adds 3 attack to a magic staff)


• Great Green Dragon - This earth dragon lives deep under a mountain of steel. This beast has become almost immune to the touch of a sword but fire will soften his armor. Your sword will only do half of it's normal damage however your magic staff has an additional 2 attack against this beast.
