Gwwlogo.png The Guild Wars Wiki has an article on Animate Bone Fiend.
  • This minion, when summoned at level 80, has a base Power of 1,500. It has two projectile finishers with each attack. This makes it quite powerful when appropriate combo fields(such as fire) are present.
  • The attacks that cause cripple, both of them together, do about the damage of the tooltip; but the attacks which do not cause cripple seem to do about half that much.
  • It ends up doing around 160 DPS unbuffed and without considering projectile finishers.
