Wraiths are an undead creature type encountered in Act Two. They are visually similar to Shadows but are, in fact, in their own eponymous non-playable race.

About[edit | edit source]

A wraith is malice incarnate, concentrated into an incoporeal form that seeks to quench all life. Even small fires can be extinguished by the sucking oblivion of the wraith's horrifying existence.

Wraiths resemble Shadows but are significantly stronger and easily distinguished by their piercing yellow eyes. These creatures generate an Aura of Vile Oblivion that snuffs out any light sources and imposes magical darkness within melee range.
