Wraiths are Ghosts with a red hue. Their attacks are like those of other ghosts: they can possess their victims, draining their health as well as instantly send an already unconscious pawn to the Rift. The possession attack is especially dangerous when the victim's health is low - at high health the onset and damage is slow and rather weak. Wraiths may inflict debilitations like Drenched or Curse by rushing their incorporeal form through their target.

- § Except when possessing a victim
|Light Possession||Spec||Grabs onto a target's head, and drains small amounts of health for around half a minute afore leaving its host, and causing knockdown. Whilst possessing an ally, it is vulnerable to physical attacks.
Whilst in possession of a host, the creature restores its health.
|Heavy Possession||Spec||Grabs onto the head and upper body of a target, and drains large amounts of health every few seconds until its host dies. Whilst possessing a host, the ghost is vulnerable to physical attacks.
Usually a wraith will use the Light Possession attack before using the more powerful health drain.
|Fade||Spec||The Wraith will fade out of this plane to avoid damage for a time. When it reappears, it will be where it was before.|
|Floating Charge||Spec||This is the primary mode of moving. It will rush at targets, staggering and potentially causing Curse as well as Drenched.|
- Weak to Holy enchanted weapons and spells.
- The Coin Purse of Charity is very effective.
- Any vocation may defeat Wraiths quite easily through the use of Throwblasts: Wait for their possession attack (look for their "arms") and move within range so they can latch on, or wait for a Pawn to be possessed. Then equip a Throwblast and either aim for the possessed Pawn or a nearby object. This typically kills the possessing Wraith in a single hit.
- Characters caught by the clinging attack of a Wraith may be freed by striking them or by shooting the Wraith with arrows. Alternatively, Explosive Barrels and other enemy strikes may also get rid it.
- Keep an eye on pawns and listen for their calls for help.
- Because Wraiths usually take time to kill, best clear the battlefield of other enemies before focusing on them.
Pawn Bestiary Knowledge
In addition to witnessing these techniques, it is necessary for Pawns to participate in killing 30 Wraiths either with their own Arisen or while travelling with others.
