I was chatting today and my mind kept shifting from thing to thing until it arrived on Bilrach and demons. It made me think about how all mahjarrat have different special things. Everyone remembers Sliske and Shadow realm and Zemouregal and necromancy, right? Wiki talks slightly about this thing too but I have decided to name the types and sort the mahjarrat to them

Types:

Combat: Most simple one. Some mahjarrats simply concentrate on fighting normally. They are experts at fighting personally against others. This category could be split to magic and melee combat.

Necromancy: One of the most easily observable mahjarrat types. The ones in this class concentrate on mainly raising and controlling dead, whether to fight for them or just to do other work. This type can range from a mahjarrat controlling huge armies of undead to a mahjarrat controlling few powerful ones. This is most evident when comparing Sliske and Zemouregal. Zemouregal has huge armies of lesser undead and one powerful individual while Sliske controls at least ten powerful individuals and can summon some lesser wights.

Shadow realm: This is another easily seen one. A mahjarrat specializing with shadow realm can most likely see well into the shadow realm without magic items and can come and go there however they want and potentially take others with them. It has mostly potential in assassination, spying and trapping enemies. We do not necessarily know the full potential of the shadow realm controllers. Zaros is an honourable mention in this class. Apparently his skills with shadow realm are greater than those of the mahjarrats.

Knowledge: After thinking some time I realized the existence of one of the less obvious types. Knowledge. These mahjarrat mostly seem to gather knowledge and use it for their own benefit. They usually seem to use a foolish adventurer to do the gathering. They seem to not to be that concentrated on other types. I could think of at least two absolute examples.

Potential types:

Summoner type: Much like the necromancy type but seem to summon living beings. They seem to search the universe and spirit realm for creatures to summon. There is also an example of the potential members of this type creating things in the spirit realm.

Shapeshifter type: This is more of a theoretical thing than anything with evidence backing it. Shapeshifting is a natural talent of the mahjarrat so some of them may be better at it than others? It could potentially be used for disguises and assassination.

Mental type: memory manipulation, mind control, dream control... Lots of possibilities with this one. (thanks Chtris)

????: inspired by Enakhra's habit of trapping beings into various states of helplessness. She has done it at least three times to three completely different beings. There may also be something related to her life drain which was her gimmick in tww, though it may be simple blood spells

Categorizing them:

In these part I will analyze each mahjarrat we have enough information on and try to place them into one or more categories.

Athanakos: He is hard to place into any of the sure categories but he seems to fit the summoning type. (Thanks syrus) He may also be combat type like Enakhra. Who knows.

Azzanadra: We have not seen his powers much but due to us seeing him mostly in straight combat I would put him in the combat type. Especially battlemage type.

Bilrach: Bilrach is another hard one. He may be combat type but due to his summonings in the depths of Daemonheim, I would place him in the potential summoning type.

Enakhra: She is most likely a combat type. We have fought her. Her only gimmick seems to be draining health. She may belong to another (currently unknown) type, but with our current information I will sort her as a battlemage.

Hazeel: He is an easy one. Definetely a shadow realm user. May also belong to another category too.

General Khazard: Another easy one. He has inherited his mother's shadow realm abilities (who we shall now put in the shadow realm type) and he seems to mostly use melee. Maybe a thing inherited from his father?

Kharshai: A hard one. We have not seen much from him. If his life as Koschei the deathless tells anything, he may be melee combat type. Currently I would place him in the knowledge type, due to his first action after being freed being sending us to gather memories. He seems to have a unique thing with memory related things forming too...

Sliske: An easy one. If someone has been living under a rock recently and knows nothing about sliske... Leave. You clearly should not be allowed to discuss about lore until you know enough. Go study or something. Well Sliske has great power over the shadow realm and like I said earlier he is a necromancer. Might also be a melee type

Zemouregal: Easiest one so far. Necromancer. Definetely.

Wahisietel: A definite knowledge type.

Bonus:

Zamorak: He seems to be combat type. Considering his son is a melee fighter and he used a staff to stab, he might be more melee combat than battlemage.

Moia: We have seen her. She seems to mostly fight by clawing people so she might be a melee fighter. And she too seems to have skills with memory manipulation like Kharshai.

Palkeera: Definetely shadow realm

Jhallan: Unknown.

Lucien: A necromancer. No doubts about that. Also a summoner. A understandable combo.

Nabor: He may have been a knowledge type

Feel free to post and discuss. I need more ideas for potential categories.

If I have placed someone in wrong category in your opinion, feel free to suggest a better one

You forgot mind control.

Lucien possesses the ability to manipulate the mind, like how they do it in Star Wars. He does this if you try to kill him after stealing the staff of Armadyl for him.

Moia can wipe and read minds with just a touch.

Zemourgal can enter the dream world. As demonstrated in the tales of arrav

Kharshai can wipe his own mind, and is expirenced with memories.

Zamorak could manipulate phejours emotions in twice burnt.

So I think that you should consider putting in a catagory for mental abilities.

Maybe... Good point. I was going to add the memory manipulation as a suggestion but that is better!

I assigned every Mahjarrat a skill or two a while ago. These are all player skills, mind, so no Shadow Realm stuff.

*Zamorak - Melee (Magic after ascending)
*Bilrach - Mining (primary), Summoning (secondary)
*Zemouregal - Summoning (primary), Magic (secondary)
*Enakhra - Magic (primary), Construction (secondary)
*Hazeel - Magic
*General Khazard - Melee/Magic hybrid
*Azzanadra - Magic
*Wahisietel - Constitution (primary), Magic (secondary)
*Akthanakos - Summoning (primary), Magic (secondary)
*Jhallan - ???
*Lucien - Magic (primary), Summoning (secondary)
*Sliske - Summoning (primary), Magic (secondary)
*Kharshai - Melee
You never were our brightest star, Khazard. 'Vermin slaughtered like lambs'? What does that even mean?

Interesting but that is just limiting them to our skills. They are much more.

Should put Sliske in the melee category too.



During dat he beats us up with his own 2 fists when we find out about stuff

During the endgame quest in the cutscene before Jas he also appears to fight us using melee as his primary combat style
Now this is what I call a brilliant signature
