Corpse Explosion is a Necromancer Skill in Diablo 2. Corpse Explosion is part of the Poison and Bone Spells Tree and requires level 6 to be unlocked. Skills usually define a character's playstyle and are divided by Class and Skill Tree. Some Skills have synergies, which provide benefits to other skills on the same Skill Tree.


Every corpse created as a result of a violent death carries with it the anguish of its final moments. With this spell the Necromancer is able to call upon those energies and focus them into a single violent force. This force then expels itself from the carcass with such power that it causes a dramatic explosion.


Corpse Explosion Information


  • Cast on the corpse of a slain monster, it explodes, damaging nerby enemies. 
  • Cast Delay: None
  • If you want to make a big mess, Corpse Explosion is the skill for you. Once dubbed "The Best Skill of All Time" by Blizzard Employees, Corpse Explosion is a favorite among many. Corpse Explosion is great for clearing out crowds of monsters very quickly. All you need to destroy large groups monsters is a body, and to lead that group of monster near that body. Explode the corpse to create a new corpse, continue to use Corpse Explosion until there is nothing left. Minions and Bone Spells can help you create an initial corpse to use, then you just have to lead the monsters near the bodies when you cause them to explode. As you put more points into Corpse Explosion you can hit monsters further away from the corpse.
  • Corpse Explosion does 50% Physical damage and 50% Fire damage. Monsters that are resistant to Fire will take less damage.
