Also known as the Forsaken, bosses can be summoned by offering specific items (hinted by the Runestones) at their specific spawn site. They have increased HP and special attacks.

A boss site is automatically marked on the player's map by reading the runestone in the specific biomes. There are multiple spawn locations for every boss.

Killing any given boss will reward the ability to summon Forsaken powers. They are unique buffs that last for 5 minutes and incur a player-specific cooldown for 20 minutes.

On multiplayer servers, everyone within roughly 10 meters of the caster are granted the buff.
