Greydwarf Shaman Battle Strategy

Avoid their Poison Attack

Greydwarf Shamans have a special attack that can inflict poison. You should avoid this as much as possible since making Poison resistance mead is hard to do early in the game.

Parry their Melee Attacks

When you get close to a Greydwarf Shaman they will start attacking like a Greydwarf or a Greyling. You can do this method so they don't use their poison attack as much and parry them with any shield.
