You can summon undead skeletons or zombies with your infernal power. This invocation lasts 1 hour per level. The type of undead created is dependent on your warlock level:

  • Levels 1 to 5: Skeleton
  • Levels 6 to 9: Zombie
  • Level 10 or more: Skeleton warrior


  • This is not a direct attack. It, therefore, does not break the invisibility of Walk Unseen.


  • Like the equivalent Animate Dead spell, this invocation leaves much to be desired. The summoned undead is not really better then a level 1 fighter. Even the skeleton warrior (summoned at level 10+) has poor equipment, low hit points and statistics; it is a level 3 Undead, with single attack at +2 to hit, which is unlikely to hit many creatures at level 10. See the Animate Dead page for more details.
  • As of 7/29/2010 with OC and MoTB installed and the current patches, the summons are a bit improved over the description. You should have a Skeleton Warrior with 8 levels of Warlock. Haven't tested how is scales from there, however. The minion is pretty good for a level 8 Caster and you get an unlimited supply.
