Most minions can be turned into zombies by death damage. When a minion is damaged by a death spell and dies the minion will become a zombie under the power of the person who casts the death spell. Zombie minions have the following properties:
- They lose health at 5 hitpoints per turn, to a minimum of 1hp
- They are healed by Death damage, including walking into an Aura of Decay.
- Health limit of 250, no matter what the limit of their original form was.
- They take double damage from Light spells.
- They are damaged (up to 50) by healing from the Sphere of Healing.
- Immunity to the spell "Swallowing Pit".
- They retain all elemental resistances.
Zombie dragons and zombie pegasus have their own Aura of Decay, which heals them every turn as any other aura would. A wraith starts out as a zombie minion, thus all of these rules apply to it as soon as it is summoned.
Zombie minions look similar to un-zombified minions, but certain parts of their body will be brown or green, and certain parts of their skeletons will also be visible.
The health of a zombie minion is constant upon transformation; the strength of the spell used to zombify the minion, and the minion's previous hitpoints, has no effect.
Zombified Minions[edit | edit source]
Minions that aren't in the following table cannot be zombified. These minions are known as arcane minions.
|Minion||Zombified Minion||Health||Spells||Number of Charges||Charge Time Initial/Recharge||Maximum Damage||Spell Description|
|Dwarf||Zombie Dwarf||12||Mine||Infinite||0/1||50||Allows the dwarf to mine through the earth, making it useful for reaching hiding arcanists. Mine will travel directly through Arcanists and minions, making it difficult to hit throughout the whole move.|
|Kablam!||Infinite||0/1||75||Kablam! is effectively a dynamite that deals 75 damage. The dwarf will run away when it plants it; however, unless it falls from an edge whilst fleeing, it will not run fast enough to escape the explosion.|
