The shade luring dummy can be bought from Razmire Builders' Merchants for 15,000 coins. It can be deployed near the temple of Flamtaer in Mort'ton to distract the Loar Shades when repairing the temple during the Shades of Mort'ton minigame. They cannot be deployed anywhere else. Shade luring dummies can only be deployed with the 3x3 space around it would be free of obstacles and cannot be deployed too close to each other. Despite the examine text when deployed, it seems to stay until the Shades manage to destroy it.
