Improvements suggestedEdit

Offered some improvements to descriptions; as answers to the questions below. 

  • Daoshi

"Doshi are able to transfer a spirit in its dead body and use talismans to move the animated corpse."

More precise, they control its movements. Spirit moves the body, but according to doshi's orders (via talisman that has inscribed order). But the use of talismans is not the only way. They can come to some sort of agrement as seen with that Tao chick and kung fu spirit. They can also modify the body that  the spirit occupies  to make it more durable and stronger (Tao family again).

Is it neccesary to be spirit's former dead body? I ask because when defeated they would turn to sand, distinctly different from kung fu spirit who was in his body confirmed - maybe some kind of replacement can be used or other bodies?

Do Daoshi use Furyoku for the above method?

  •  Onmyōji

One of their most notable characteristics in general is use of shikigami. But in this show shikigami's are not explicitly mentioned BUT Oni would fit that description (as a shaman king version). Especially because they are created (conjured) and then summoned, apart from being created by powerful shamans. This is a conjecture; I still haven't finished reading nor watching but everything fits nicely.

Are you sure it's divination and not precognition?

  • Elemental Warrior

Missing as a type or subtype of a shaman.

  • Itako

Do they use Furyoku?

  • Curse users

Which category/type they fall into / Which types use them?   

  • Resurrection and opposite

For Sati Saigan it says "she is able to bring people back from the dead. She can also send people to the netherworld." Tao Jun is her disciple (ressurection).

Inborn abilities, spirit associated, type associated or something else?? It needs to be elaborated in the article cause this are very specific, powerful and desirable abilities. Rizgubi (talk) 16:58, April 9, 2018 (UTC)

The types are base on actual information given by characters and official sources in the series, not speculative or unconfirmed information. Per say, elemental warrior, is a tittle given to the five people in the group, not a speicifc type of shaman, just like the ability to ressucrect someone is an overall skill, not a specific subtype of skills. --Gojita (talk) 05:44, April 10, 2018 (UTC)Gojita
