Notes[edit]

  • The rune's Death Nova effect is distinct from the Necromancer's Death Nova trait or the Poison Nova generated by that trait. The rune effect is an explosion that deals initial damage and applies 1 stack of Poison in a small radius around the slain target, affecting up to 5 targets. The effect is visually indicated by a black mark on the ground around the slain target. It does not generate a Combo Field like the Necromancer trait, nor does it pulse.
  • The initial explosion of the Death Nova effect can crit.
  • In the combat log, the Death Nova effect reads, "Cause an explosion fueled by the death of a foe."
