Useful Notes

  • The Shapeshifter does self-visit when shifting, but this self-visit can only be seen by the Harlot. A Stalker cannot see the self visit.
  • If the Shapeshifter kills and Shifts the same night, they will be seen visiting their target. If they don't take the kill and only shift, they will not be seen visiting the target.
  • The shift can only be redirected by redirecting the killing wolf, which may not be the Shapeshifter.
