Supposedly the 3rd Raids boss that will eventually come out.

The nature of Raids is extremely trust based and roles are important. It's very easy to get teammates killed and have high empathies on teamwork.

According to Mazcab lore, Yakamaru was corrupted by an Airut Shamans mind-controlling magic, and in RS concept art is an upcoming boss. It's also supposed to use Illusion magic.

What kinds of abilities do you think the Airut Shaman may have? And what kinds of roles are needed to counter them? With his theme of being an evil Shaman, out of all the Raid bosses, he could do some REAALLLLY messed up stuff.

My guesses:

BT as always: Shaman uses high damage melee with his electric tuska club (weapon according to art), which fragments into magic attacks to nearby players.

PK stunner: Shaman has a special attack that mind-controls a player giving them the message "You have an uncontrollable urge to go PKing" forcing them to attack other players (temporarily enables PvP for that player). Someone must stun the player to remove the mind-control effect.

PRU (Prism of Restoration User): Area slowly drains players mental focus, draining Summoning points and when depleted, causes the player to randomly do unintended actions like dropping food, unequipping weapons, and disabling prayer. Someone must keep placing a Prism of Restoration to ensure people don't run out.

SR(Summoning Runner): Shamans minions drop summoning ingredients, which someone must collect and combine into a "Clone Pouch", and summon a clone of themselves.

One point in the fight, the Shaman will prepare to insta-kill the last player that attacked him. Must have all players stop attacking and the Summoning Runner must make their clone attack the Shaman through the familiar controls UI, making him sacrifice the clone rather than an actual player.

TP (Therapist): Occasionally the player with the lowest DPS and damage taken combined will become "suicidal" due to the Shamans corrupting magic and collapse on the ground, stabbing themselves repeatedly dealing constant damage while saying they're not good enough. Someone has to go interact with them to make them stop (similar to Yaka CPR role)

MW (Minion Wrangler): Minions consist of corrupted slayer monsters that inflict curses on players they attack that massively reduce their damage. Someone has to voke them and tank the curses, while DPS kills minions without being cursed.

D(Digger): Shaman may pick up a player and use them as a melee weapon, damaging both the player carried and those he attacks, so staying out of melee range is mandatory. After around 8s, the Shaman slams the player into the ground, burying them. Someone must dig them up before they suffocate and die.

Illusion Stunner (IS): Shaman may summon Illusions of himself that attack players. They can be stunned to shatter them, killing them instantly, but deal massive damage to nearby players. IS makes sure everyone is away from Illusions before stunning.

Rewards: Similar to Yaka, but upon looting all 3 bosses you have a chance of getting a Tuska Quill which upgrades a piece of Raids gear to T92.


What kinds of abilities do you think the Shaman Raids boss or any of the other planned bosses may have?
