An equipped shrunken head determines the type of opponent that will be summoned as hireling. Activating the buff without an equipped shrunken head will conjure a ghost. Deactivating it will release the active hireling. This buff increased the chance that opponents will drop shrunken heads.

Skills

The following skills will affect this combat art:

Usage Strategies

  • It tends to be better to take the bronze Malice mod for damage rather than Stone Skin for armor because when you eat runes, your hireling increases in level and will be strong enough without the armor upgrade.
  • Unless the player is looking to make this buff into a way to get shrunken heads, most people prefer to mod the silver and gold mods for battle effectiveness by picking Elevation then Fury
  • Summon works as an excellent meat shield and distraction for mobs
  • Certain rare shrunken heads (insect, monster, dragon) will summon a more powerful version of the creature (scorpion, minotaur, dragon)

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Excellent distraction for mobs
  • Adds another source of damage for battle
  • Always fun to have followers with you for company
  • Certain shrunken heads do stellar damage

Cons

  • You have to eat many runes to make it powerful
  • The player cannot chose which enemy the summon attacks
  • Occasionally when entering caves the pet will stop where it spawns and need to be re-summoned to get it to move and attack, although leaving and reentering the cave again sometimes fixes this.
