The Deus Sol Invictus Ritualist in Transylvania uses Sacrifice Self to unleash the Shade From Beyond. Does anything change if you let them complete the ritual as opposed to destroying them immediately? I haven’t noticed any changes to their buffs or debuffs, but I might have overlooked something.
The amount of time it takes changes.
Seems odd to show off the buildup for nothing, but it matches my observation. Thanks.
You’ll find other enemies whose ‘adds’ (additional spawns) need to be cleared first to drop a shield.
