    Volatile Dead

    VolatileDeadVolatile Dead is a spell that consumes a corpse to summon a volatile orb. The orb homes in on nearby enemies and explodes for fire damage on contact.

    Skill functions and interactions

    • Homing: Orbs have the same pathfinding AI as the enemy modifier "Volatile Flameblood", which means they can seek out enemies with no line of sight, and even navigate through short maze layouts and pass through fences and some closed doors to reach an enemy. This can be exploited to damage an enemy without the enemy finding your location to retaliate.

    • Despite their appearance, the orbs created by Volatile Dead are not projectiles. Thus, effects that normally affect projectiles (such as LesserMultipleProjectilesLesser Multiple Projectiles Support) do not have an effect on Volatile Dead.

    • Orbs created by Volatile Dead stay alive for up to 4.5 seconds, and their travel speed increases over time.
