How it's used[edit]

Challenge Rating is a rating that is given to creatures, traps and certain other events and is used as an estimate of how dangerous that particular encounter is. Challenge Rating assumes that a party of a Fighter, a Cleric, a Wizard and a Rogue with an average level equal to the Challenge Rating will expend approximately 25% of their expendable resources during the encounter. It is linked to Encounter Level. The Challenge rating of a creature is used to determine how much treasure (along with the monsters entry in this case) and experience the monster provides.
