Shaman is a class available to players in Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen. They function primarily as a Healer, with their foremost healing spells being their over-time abilities, which they can synergize with other spells to create bursts of healing. Shaman are also capable of casting a number of buffs, bolstering attributes, amplifying attack speed and reinforcing resistances. Foes can suffer the inverse and find themselves wracked with debuffs and DoTs.
The Shaman is a disciple of ancient mysticism that uses his powers to call upon spiritual forces. Residing within a planar realm called the Spiritual Arcana are the spirits of the dead and the energy they emanate. By following the techniques of Ethosian priests, Shamans can interact with spirits and siphon their energies to bolster their own powers. To the Shaman, death is not feared. It is a natural course all must take. Immortality is what they fear.
It is rumored that Shaman live in every age at once. Thus, Shamans know the ancestry of any friend or foe, wielding this knowledge to great benefit, or baneful cost. It is a second sight, allowing them to sense the threads of energy woven through Terminus’ past. It is this unique gift that allow Shamans to discern the ancestry of friend or foe, wielding this knowledge in the form of powerful Boons – or frightful Banes.

Healer. The role of the healer is a critical one. The healer's job, first and foremost, is to ensure that none of their teammates die. Within an ideal group set-up, the Healer can focus the majority of their healing on a single teammate: the party's Tank.
Utility. Utility is a broad category. It can perhaps best be thought of as a sum of all abilities that do not fall under the other categories (Tanking, Healing, Damage Dealing, Crowd Controlling, Supporting)
Vision. Shamans gain Vision as a percentage of the effective healing they perform on themselves and their allies. The more Vision a Shaman accumulates, the faster their spell-casting speed becomes, up to a total of 20%. This is represented in the UI by a closed eye in the character portrait. As a Shaman’s Vision increases, the eye will progressively open until full.
The race you choose will provide different racial innate abilities that can and will be handy while adventuring. There will be times when the race you choose is to your, and your party’s, advantage; at other times neutral, and other times to your disadvantage. They will all be useful in any serious dungeon or other adventure area but one may be more advantageous in certain scenarios and situations.
