Vaal Summon Skeletons is a vaal spell that summons an army of skeletons, led by a skeleton general.

Skill Functions and Interactions

One of several general variants will be randomly summoned on cast.

  • Aura General: Skeleton General that wears armor, somewhat similar to Vaal Fallen. Has an aura that resembles Anger, with a smaller radius.[1]
  • Melee General: Skeleton General that wields a mace. It has melee splash attacks that are slow but deal high damage.
  • Archer General: Skeleton General that uses a bow. It can use the Rain of Arrows ability.

This skill works with the passive skills that increase the maximum number of skeletons. But like Summon Skeletons it does not gain an increase in the amount spawned at each use. If one were to cast the ability while it is still in effect its behavior is similar to Summon Skeletons; first it spawns new skeletons up to the cap, then it start replacing the oldest one. When replacing, no consideration is taken to what kind of skeleton is summoned or replaced. Hence it's possible to have two generals at a (short) time. At gem level 20 with all passives and no unique items the chance is 6/(36+6).
