–Raider to a crabless

Crab Raiders are soldiers of the Crab Raiders faction. They can be found patrolling Crab Town, Crab Village, and other territories controlled by the Crab Raiders, such as Greenbeach, Stobe's Garden, The Crags, The Pits, and The Pits East.

The deaths of Valamon, Lady Tsugi, and Lord Yoshinaga can allow them patrol as far as Stormgap Coast and Heng.

They will show up to a player's outpost to host Crab Tournaments.

They wear [Standard] armour (50% chance of [High]) and have weapons manufactured by Ancient and Catun Scrapmaster.
