    Detonate Dead


    For the Vaal-themed counterpart, see VaalDetonateDeadVaal Detonate Dead.

    Detonate Dead is a spell that explodes a corpse, dealing secondary damage as fire in an area around it.

    Skill functions and interactions

    Detonate Dead deals damage in two hits that get calculated separately, the fixed fire damage component and the corpse maximum life % component.

    • Secondary damage: Detonate Dead's explosion deals secondary damage, hence it cannot be affected by stats affecting spell damage, including ones such as x% increased Critical Strike Chance for Spells. However the corpse explosion component of the spell will receive bonuses from elemental, area, and fire related stats.

    • Partying: While in a party, the explosion ignores the increased life added for each player beyond the first and treats the monster's life as if the player was solo.

    • Damage reflection: The damage from the Detonate Dead explosion cannot be reflected.
