In Irish legend, a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die. In Scotland they scream when a bottle of Nessy's is about to be emptied.
The banshee ghost can be captured in all normal locations:
The banshee ghost can also be captured in all Alien visitors' locations:
During special events, the banshee ghost can also occasionally be captured in all non-raid special event locations.
The banshee ghost has been known to occasionally drop one or more of the following items of ghost loot:
If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat on it), the banshee ghost may occasionally and randomly drop you a snowflake as loot. Because these snowfall-driven drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, snowflake loot drops are not specifically included in the list above.
If you have the mockery stat in your setup (through the talent tree bonus or because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 mocktails added to other loot drops from the banshee ghost. Because these mockery drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the mocktails are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible mocktails that may be dropped is on the mocktails page.
Mockery stat drops can be distinguished from a normal loot drop as follows:
A standard loot drop of a mocktail 5x Cherry bomb A mockery stat-caused loot drop of a mocktail 5 Devil driver
Vintage connoisseur loot
If you have the vintage connoisseur stat in your setup (through an accessory, companion or contract with the stat} you may occasionally have between 2 and 10 bottles of a non-Nessy's loot potion or of Shadetouch blue or Shadetouch purple added to other loot drops from the banshee ghost. Because these connoisseur drops are so dependent on a player's individual setup and cannot be relied upon, none of the non-Nessy's loot potions involved are included in the loot list above. The entire list of possible bottles that can be dropped is found on the non-Nessy's loot potions page.
Both normal drops of a particular non-Nessy's loot potion and connoisseur drops of a particular loot potion show the same way in your journal:
16 x Shadetouch purple (10 bonus loot)
The banshee ghost's midnight counterpart is the shrieking banshee ghost.
If you want to attract a banshee ghost, use any of the Nessy's family of bait (Nessy's Golden Reserve, Nessy's platinum edition, or Nessy's supreme edition) or Shadetouch purple, Shadetouch green, or Shadetouch blue as bait.
Using these baits is not a guarantee that you will attract a banshee ghost, but except for a few very rare occasions, these baits are the only bait that attracts them at all.
(Note: Shadetouch orange does not have the same ability to attract a banshee ghost as the other members of the Shadetouch family.)
- 29 August 2011: The banshee ghost was first seen in Virtual Scotland's Scarwood forest.
- 6 December 2011: The banshee ghost escaped from the forest and migrated into the rest of Virtual Scotland.
