— In-game description [?]


  • This skill summons the most potential minions possible for a Necromancer making it the best skill to combine with the Flesh of the Master trait.
  • The shambling horrors with their innate damage absorption combined with the trait, can quickly clear you of all conditions with the Necromantic Corruption trait, which makes it extremely strong as a defensive skill against all forms of damage.
  • Grants the necromancer the "Rise!".png Dark Bond effect.
  • Shambling Horrors summoned by this skill do not appear to give life force when they die but they do trigger the Death Nova trait.
