Quick question regarding the adjustments for making creatures Elite, Heroic or Epic. (Page 104 of the Basic Rules). Are the modifications for each category cumulative?
For example if I want to make an Elite version of a creature I apply the modifications listed next to Elite. That is straightforward.
If I wanted to make a Heroic version of a creature, do I first apply the modifications for Elite, and then the modifications for Heroic? Or do I ignore the modifications for Elite and just apply the modifications for Heroic to the base creature?
I guess it does not matter either way so long as the creature is balanced against the player characters. But for the sake of completeness, I was wondering what the official way of doing it is (assuming there is one).
Thanks in Advance.
