  • The damage equation is Damage = 32 + (Power * 0.0333). While in Shroud, the damage equation is Damage = 62 + (Power * 0.0666).
  • The healing equation is the same as the damage equation.
  • This trait does not stack. Allies near multiple necromancers with this trait will only receive its effect once.
