Tactics

  • Vulnerable to TorporTarred, and Petrification.
  • Resistant to Blindness.
  • Unlike many other undead, Banshees are easily frozen.
  • Banshees' signature weeping is the sign of them being prepared to attack (usually Scream). Maintain distance.
  • Banshees should be dispatched quickly if they must be approached in close quarters, where their shrieks are more effective.
  • Banshees can be grabbed and thrown off cliffs or into open flames.
  • Banshees can be picked up any time they're in prone position.
