The most intelligent gnolls can master shamanistic magic. Gnoll shamans prefer battle spells to compensate for lack of might, not hesitating to use them on those who question their status in a tribe.


The Gnoll Shaman tends to attack from a distance, with powerful lightning magic.
If the Hero/ine is close to them, they will also use melee attack, but it will not be nearly as powerful as their ranged attack.

  • If a shaman sees you in the distance, be sure to hide behind something, in order to avoid being struck by their lightning bolt.
  • Hiding behind a door will cause them to chase you, bringing them into melee range for an easy (and arguably safer) kill.
  • Avoid using ranged attacks on shamans, because often, the damage from their attacks is greater than the damage you could deal to them.
  • Try not to stand in water when a shaman is nearby, as water amplifies the damage taken from their lightning bolts.
