Possible Trivia?[edit]

Do i only imagine this, or does this skill really show a Scarab? —ZerphatalkThe Improver 18:19, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Definitely looks like a scarab to me, in fact that's the reason I came on here. Adam144 18:59, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Second and Third Note[edit]

Do we really need these? —ZerphatalkThe Improver 18:21, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Not at all. Take them out if you feel it's nessecary, i guess.--Fallen 02:33, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

wheres the minion[edit]

i see only a spider or something,nowhere a double minion.... ow,to answer zerpha:theyre cheap to create and sacrifice,combine with jagged bones (see lonai in consulate docks (nightfall)) and you have a cheap unit,use this combo and ready for pain:

Animate Bone Minions Animate Bone Minions
Arcane Echo Arcane Echo
Jagged Bones Jagged Bones (twice,due to arcane echo)
Death Nova Death Nova
Taste of Death Taste of Death , Feast for the Dead Feast for the Dead or Putrid Flesh Putrid Flesh

You`ll have poison,bleeding and eventually disease on enemies,and 2 elite units

Jagged horrors are not elite units. instead of this long process, you could use Animate Shambling Horror. except it uses less skills, and the intermediate unit (shambling horror) is useful. If I were wanting jagged horrors, I'd use jagged bones on a shambling horror. StatMan 14:23, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

This Skill is Debatable[edit]

Pretty much this skill is pretty debatable. If you're going to use Death Nova Death Nova and be a minion bomber, then take this skill; it's a must. But if you want meatshields to do damage too, then you should go with Animate Bone Horror Animate Bone Horror and Animate Bone Fiend Animate Bone Fiend instead.


Except, your forgetting, Animate Shambling Horror Animate Shambling Horror puts both of those to shame.98.94.230.121 17:23, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

Looks[edit]

They really shoulda made the Bone Minions look something like the picture, the Pic is a Scarab, yet they just look like midgigated Bone Horrors.. :/

Related Skills[edit]

I don't see why the skills that summon Bone Horror's are related? The minions look similar, and it ends there. Why not Animate Vampiric Horror? They look the same. StatMan 21:53, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Because they do more then look the same, they act the same only there is two of them at a lower level... animate vampiric perform a different attack... MrPaladin talk 14:25, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
alrighty, I concede to your point. I'll revert my revert on bone horror too. StatMan 13:37, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Minion Master[edit]

This is easily the best minion master skill, as the whole point of an MM, imo, is to use minions as a meat shield to protect squishies. Being lower levels, in pve, foes will target them instead of the players, and the skill itself is far more spammable (if there are corpses to be had) than all other minion skills (5 second recharge), and creates twice as many minions.

yes and aura of the lich doesn't exist! --Dragon7 cape emblem.pngThe Holy Dragons 18:56, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
Yes because Aura of the Lich isn't an elite skill or anything.... I'm comparing it to the other non-elite Minion skills. But on that note, yes AotL is the best Elite Minion skill and goes very well with Animate Bone Minions. Lahmia The Vampire 13:34, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Health?[edit]

Does anyone know what its health is @ 12 Death & 16 Spawning Power? OR does anyone know how to figure it out? || DarkMugen 23:20, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
