|Release date||21 June 2021 (Update)|
|Description||Replace life with shadows to create a shield from the fallen.|
For each piece of magic tank equipment worn:
- Gain 10% of its armour value as flat damage reduction.
- Gain 33% of your defence level as flat damage reduction.
- 12m duration.
- Damage cannot be reduced by more than 75% due to this effect.
- Reduced effectiveness in PvP.
- Gains 10% of its armour value as flat damage reduction
- Gains 33% of your Defence level as flat damage reduction
The spell lasts for 12 minutes, and damage cannot be reduced more than 75% by this effect (maximum of 50% reduction in PvP). Casting the spell does not interrupt channelled abilities and ignores global cooldown.
Aside from specifically the bleed from the set effect of trimmed masterwork armour, Animate Dead works on all types of damage including style type damage as well as typeless (both soft and hard) damage, which can potentially stop otherwise fatal hits.
When 30 seconds are remaining on the spell, the player will be informed with the messageas a warning to renew the spell if it is still being used. When it expires, the player will be informed with the message
As the spell can only be used with magic tank armour, this makes it highly effective with ganodermic, seasinger, primeval and cryptbloom armour due to their high levels and being tank armour. The spell does stack with cryptbloom's set effects, adding an additional layer of protection.
