Useful Info

Gnoll bouda are support casters often found with packs of standard gnolls. Only slightly more physically powerful than a regular gnoll, they aren't much of a threat alone, but can speed up and heal their allies while weakening you.

Tips & Tricks

  • Weakening gaze severely and irresistibly neuters your damage output for a short duration. Try to not let them get into line of sight until you want to actually fight them.
  • Try to lure them away from their group. That way they can't heal their fellow gnolls or speed their movement up.


  • Prior to 0.29, gnoll bouda were known as gnoll shamans. Also, they lost Haste Other for Hunting Call and Corona for Weakening Gaze.
  • Prior to 0.14, gnoll shamans knew Petrify.
