It has the range of the Heartstealer Skull and the damage of a Lifedrinker Skull/Bloodsucker Skull. The skull costs 5 less MP to use than the latter and the attack bonus far outweighs the -3 Speed debuff. However, keep in mind that it gives 30 less HP compared to the aforementioned Bloodsucker Skull.
Nevertheless, the skull can be safely used as a main, but bear in mind the rarity of it - it is fairly difficult to get it back afterwards. If you truly don’t have any use of it, it becomes nice pet food, bringing 800 feed power to whichever pet you want to feed it to - about 40% of a common pet’s maximum.
Interestingly, the -3 stat bonus for the skull cancels out the +3 stat bonus for Staff of Esben, the other white dropped by Esben the Unwilling.
Its description used to read: “This skull still seems to contain some of the Dark Spirit’s power.” The Dark Spirit in the description was later changed to the Void Entity to accomodate the lore for the then-soon-to-be-released Lost Halls.
