Shamans and Reavers are the second group within the Orcs that prefer magic to weapons. This situation evolved over the last 300 years, since the Orcs fell under the rule of a Chief-Shaman. Shamans purposely look for the gifted ones to teach them their art. The path of a newly initiated Shaman is connected either to his native tribe (where he replaces his teacher and becomes the new chief), or directly to the Imperial army. Orc Shamans form separate small groups to provide support; inspire warriors about heroic deeds, save and treat wounded troops.
