Skill Trainers:


  • This is the fastest known way to exploit corpses to prevent the enemies from using them.
  • A useful spell for teleporting and poisoning enemies, however since corpse selection is random, use of this skill can put a player in immediate danger.
  • Occasionally corpse teleporation can be used to bypass environmental obstacles such as walls and steep hills. This can lead to interesting tactical situations, and rarely a player will get stuck.
  • Teleporting via Necrotic Traversal does not cause the caster to drop held objects (like a flag or resurrection orb) whereas shadow stepping does.
  • Allows players to access areas earlier than intended while in Dunes of Despair (mission) and Minister Cho's Estate (mission).
  • Can be used to uncover approx. .1% of the Tyrian Map that would normally be impossible to reach in The Frost Gate (mission) and The Wilds (mission).
