Signet of Capture:


  • Combine with Animate Bone Minions or to a lesser extent Animate Shambling Horror and Taste of Death and trigger Death Nova by creating more Bone Minions when at the minion cap or by killing the Shambling Horror with Taste of Death, both are ways which give you longer lasting minions then the one you killed.
  • Heroes are capable of using this skill on minions with good efficiency, since they will automatically enchant any minions close to death, something that normal players have problems with. The drawback is that they tend to prefer casting this spell above Blood of the Master when not in battle, resulting in unnecessary minion deaths.
  • Unlike most enchantments, a character enchanted with Death Nova can be easily identified by the circle of green fog and sparkles around them.
