Raise Skeleton is a Necromancer Skill in Diablo 2. Raise Skeleton is part of the Necromancer Summoning Spells Tree and requires level 1 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.
Early on, Necromancers learn to control the skeletal remains of deceased creatures. Invoking this skill causes a nightmarish jumble of animated bones to rise from a fresh corpse. Animated partially through their own will and partially through the summoned spirits of ancient warriors, Necromancers often maintain a small host of these reanimated soldiers to do their bidding.
Raise Skeleton Information
- Cast on the corpse of a slain monster. This raises a skeleton warrior that fights for you.
- Cast Delay: None
- Skeletons can work great throughout Normal Difficulty especially with points into Skeleton Mastery (or a point and +Skill Items). Once you hit Nightmare and Hell difficulty, generally Skeletons will die very quickly. You may wish to, once you hit Level 30, upgrade to Revived Monsters and switch to Revived Monsters and Skeletal Mages. However, if you max Raise Skeleton, Skeleton Mastery, use an Aura from an Act II Mercenary, and have good use of Curses, you can still continue to use Skeletons in Hell difficulty.
- Skeletons, when created, have a 5% chance to spawn with a shield. This shield functions to allow the skeleton to block, although skeletons only have a 3% chance to block
