Tribal healers resistant to magical attacks.
Shamans are the game's introduction to magical resistance - otherwise they don't pose a big threat. They can generally be defeated with a sufficient physical damage output. However, they possess a healing ability, making their allies harder to kill, though it has limited range so keeping them away from their allies with soldiers can help if you don't have a strong kill zone.
- Archers are the best way to deal with Shamans because the fire rate is sufficient to kill the Shamans before they can heal themselves.
- In later levels, for example The Dark Tower Iron Challenge, Ranger's Hideout with level 3 Wrath of the Forest is handy, as it kills them in only one use on Easy and Normal difficulty.
- Leveled towers in general can make it easier to thin the enemy numbers, reducing the effectiveness of the Shamans' healing.
- Shamans do not have much attack power, so Barracks soldiers can be sent to hold them easily if need be.
