Part of the Hollow King Necromancer Set.

This is a purely damage dealing skull, with the most AOE damage of any skull (400, ignoring most DEF), a decent radius, a massive ATT boost, and Damaging. Note that it lacks WisMod and that takes a lot of Magic Heal to get permanent Damaging.

However, it does not provide healing or a maximum HP boost, so should typically be carried alongside another skull for when you need either property.

This item used to drop in a cyan bag before the addition of orange bags in Patch X.18.0 (Oct 2017).

Before Exalt Version (Sep 2020), this item had a stat bonus of +5 VIT.

Before Exalt Version (Mar 2023), this item dealt 400 damage with 400 armor ignore.

Its name roughly translates to “remember that you have to die” in Latin, and is actually a Latin Christian theory and practice of reflection on mortality.
