Skeleton Sorcerers are more dangerous and durable versions of Skeleton Mages. They cast powerful elemental spells, but are vulnerable to melee strikes. They can cast an unholy form of anodyne, with a red sigil that heals the undead. Blunt weapons do extra damage to their bones.

On death they drop either Forgotten Arcanum, Pigeon's Blood, or an Ancient Scroll

Skeleton Sorcerers wear a decayed version of the Wizard's Set of clothing - some of the color of the original can still be discerned.

  •  Weak to Holy magic.
  • Weak against Blunt damage from maces and warhammers.
  • Inflicting Silence prevents them from casting spells.
