Notes:

  • Requires at least one corpse within 600 radius to be cast.
  • The skeletons are always spawned next to the Dark Troll Summoner.
  • As a neutral unit:
    • When the troll is aggroed and at least one unit had died within 600 radius, it casts the spell.
    • This means that the troll does not need a corpse to cast it. When a unit died once within 600 radius, it always casts it when aggroed.
  • As a player controlled unit:
    • Can only be cast when a corpse is within 600 radius.
    • A unit's corpse usually lasts for 6–7 seconds after the death animation.
    • Every unit leaves a corpse, even when it is not visible (e.g. illusions).
  • Has a cast backswing of 0.6 when cast by Doom minimap icon.png Doom (acquired through Devour).
  • Has a cast backswing of 1.07 when cast by Rubick minimap icon.png Rubick (acquired through casting Spell Steal on Doom).
