Elite Spawning Overhaul

The current system for spawning elites in Risk of Rain 2 is fairly limiting for modders, as you can only specify hp/dmg boosts on a per-tier basis and have no way to adjust spawning probabilities. This mod overhauls the elite spawning logic to provide finer-grained control. This mod doesn't do much by itself, but may be used as a dependency by mods that work with elites.

Elite Affix Cards

Elites are made eligible for spawning by creating an EliteAffixCard and adding it to the Eso.Cards list. This list is pre-populated with cards for the vanilla elites.


Place EliteSpawningOverhaul.dll in your BepInEx\plugins folder. If you're using a Mod Manager, it may place it under its own folder under plugins, which is also fine.
