SKULL OF PUTRID PESTILENCE
Taken from the Son of Arachna and enchanted with nercomancy to bring it to life. This can produce a toxic lingering bile, although the same corrosive bile is the reason this skull cannot be directed at any one creature.

Compared to other skulls, this sort of skull is more of a hybrid of poison as it creates a lingering zone which provides very minor healing but deals its damage and heal over time. This was themed this way due to the nature of it coming from a parasitic origin, coming from the Son of Arachna. This also plays much like the boss, with an emphasis on positioning and zoning. Necrotic toxins would have a small green particle effects occasionally spawning from the tile it is on.
Due to its lingering nature, this would make it easier for the Necromancer to heal off targets they can predict the movement of or stationary targets they can safely approach, making this useful for rushing. This deals a consistent amount of damage over time as well as ignoring a decent amount of defense. However, it would require time to apply the zone and deal the damage as well as its heal being very undesirable when needing the normal burst amount of healing from a skull. This may also be a useful for rushing however due to its very poor DPS output and heal, it may be better to use other skulls. The main utility of this skull comes from its heal due to the number of targets it can possibly affect.

Edit #1: I added a cooldown, I thought I already added it but yes I am not a cleaver man. Changed setting the health from 0 to 1. Editted some lines referencing it.
