Harbinger

A Harbinger

Harbingers are a type of immortal monsters. Harbingers summon enemies to fight the player while empowering them in different ways, and they can only be harmed by killing their minions. Harbingers can drop currency shards, for both ones seen in Wraeclast as well as their own currency.

Harbingers were introduced to the game in the Harbinger leagues. Afterwards, they weren't added to the core game but can still be encountered via Zana missions, as part of the Harbinger map modifier on Zana's map device, or in Harbinger nodes in the Azurite Mine.

Abilities

Harbingers are invincible enemies that summon waves of enemies and summon new ones as they are defeated. Harbingers can also indirectly attack by empowering their minions, such as creating a Righteous Fire aura around a monster or have all monsters use Flame Dash. At higher levels, Harbingers can also summon Obelisks that can attack or power up their monsters.

Exclusive items

Harbingers have their own specific drop tables.

Currency

Harbingers don't drop regular items, but only currency shards. These items can directly drop from Harbingers:
