  • Mr. Steel,

    Here's what I have encountered in the ruins.

    Tiny Mithral:

    These appear to be made of some kind of mithril alloy. I conducted a few tests with different kinds of weapons, but did not find them overly resistant to any form of damage.

    Bhersken:

    These appear to be some kind of amalgam of flesh and metal. They are resistant to slashing and piercing weapons, but not vulnerable to blunt ones (not the ones I met, in any case), rather just not unnaturally resistant to them. Elemental damage doesn't seem to have any better effect apart from what you'd normally expect, including electricity.

    Sun Golem:

    So called because it has some kind of sun symbol on its chest. It appears extremely powerful and large, only met it once, I did not stay to engage it in a prolonged battle. Appears to have sentience, but seems to be in a state of constant pain and suffering, screaming and hitting walls like in the throes of agony. Appears to have a limited selection of spell-like abilities as well, such as plane shift or dimension door, allowing for instant travel between locations.

    It may not even be a golem, but some kind of armor animated by a spirit, but it is definitely not flesh and blood, and construct-enchanted weapons hurt it.

    I hope this is of some assistance to you. There may be more types, but these are all I have encountered thus far.
