Raise Zombie skill screenshot.jpg

Wraeclast is a cursed place, where the dead walk freely. Novice occultists have learned to harness this quality of the land, summoning an undead minion to do their bidding. The incantation is a minor one, so the only required reagent is some fresh kill lying about. Once summoned, the mindless creature will wander about defending its master. Higher levels of skill will summon an entity that moves quicker, hits harder, and absorbs more damage.

Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

Raise Zombie is a spell that summons an allied zombie minion.

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).
