Risen Acolytes are Risen minions of Zhaitan that were once Human and can be male or female. In combat they use skills that are similar to a Necromancer's and they also have a significantly larger aggro radius than many other creatures. During some events they can also possess the ability to heal Risen bosses, such as the Eye of Zhaitan in Straits of Devastation during Destroy the Eye of Zhaitan.
