  • The damage absorption of the Shambling Horrors can combine with the trait Necromantic Corruption, making "Rise!" an extremely strong defensive skill against all forms of damage.
  • Grants the necromancer the "Rise!".png Dark Bond effect.
  • Shambling Horrors summoned by this skill do not give life force when they die but they do trigger the Death Nova trait.
