Said monsters belong to 5 typical elements being light, dark, water, fire and wind which have advantages and disadvantages against each other. This is expanded further with archetypes which drive the strength levels of monsters in various statistics and dictates how they’ll fit into a given player strategy.

The real customisation is saved for the in built rune system which also offers much of the games longevity.
