Raise Zombie is a spell that consumes a corpse to summon an allied zombie minion. Zombies attack using melee attacks and an area of effect slam.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Support Gems: Any support gem that would work on a melee attack will be used by the player's zombies' attacks when linked to this gem. In addition to their melee attacks, zombies occasionally use an area of effect slam attack which can be scaled with support gems, area of effect passive skills, and the threshold jewel.
  • Corpse Targeting: Holding down the corpse targeting toggle (defaults to the "a" button) makes it easier to choose a corpse to raise.
  • Zombie Limit: The maximum amount of raised zombies can be increased by passive skills and unique items (see below for more information).
  • Zombie Attack: Despite the tooltip claims the zombie attack is a Slam skill (internal id: ZombieSlam), it cannot be supported by Fist of WarFist of War SupportSlam, Attack, Melee, AoE, Support

    , although Melee Splash can only support melee strike skill according to its gem text. However, since the "ZombieSlam" already has its own AOE, Melee Splash Support may not be the desired choice of support gem. This support gem is included in some Zombie build guide, before the intro of slam and strike gem tags.

In addition, another Delve drop-only mod SubterraneanSubterranean
