How can you tell the difference between the mobs in Rift? Basically, if I click the mob, what is the indicator that it is not a normal mob?

  • If it's an elite mob, it has spikes around the portrait when you target it.
  • If it's a rare mob, it has a diamond in the portrait.
  • Boss mobs have a red skull where the level would be as well
