Pillager raid captains behave like normal tough pillagers, shooting at the hero with its crossbow. However, they deal increased damage and knockback. Pillager raid captains spawn only within missions that have already been completed once, but not on all. Depending on the situation, there can be one to six pillager raid captains in missions. They spawn alone or with a group of illagers or illager allies around them, such as vindicators, tough vindicators, geomancers, pillagers, tough pillagers, mountaineers, tough mountaineers, wind callers, enchanters, royal guards, iceologers, and witches.

Drops[]

Type

Filter item default.png Consumable

When defeated, they drop one of two banners, either threat or mystery. Threat portrays the Bad Omen icon and Mystery portrays a skull, and when picked up, the game is enhanced with modifiers (e.g. enemies have boost). At the end of the level, an extra item is given in addition to the artifact chest. Also, the chance for it to be unique exponentially increases for every pillager raid captain defeated after the first.

If all six pillager raid captains have been defeated inside of a daily trial on Apocalypse + 25, the highest power level items in the game can be collected from the raid captain chest.
