Other information


The black shuck can be captured in all normal non-raiding locations (excluding England:


You must have one of the red cauldron, scarlet cauldron, or crimson cauldron armed with a piece of blood plasma in it to attract the black shuck or any of the other red monsters.


The black shuck has been known to occasionally drop the following types of ghost loot:

Mockery loot

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 black shuck. 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
Snowflake loot

If you have the snowfall stat in your setup (because of an accessory, companion or contract with the stat on it), the black shuck 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.
