Useful Info

Gnoll shamans are support casters often found with packs of standard gnolls. Only as powerful physically as a standard gnoll, they aren't much of a threat alone, but they can be dangerous if they manage to haste an ally with a powerful weapon.


Spell set
Slot1 Corona (50% success rate when MR=12)
Slot2 none
Slot3 Heal Other (2d1)
Slot4 Haste Other
Slot5 Heal Other (2d1)
Slot6 Minor Healing (2d1)

Tips & Tricks

  • Their Corona spell doesn't make a big difference for characters in heavy armour, but can make combat significantly riskier for evasion-based characters.
  • Try to separate them from their allies: hasted gnolls are not fun to fight. If this is not possible, at least target them in preference to normal gnolls.
