Notes:

This skull has the unique ability of slowing its targets temporarily. It is useful in many situations, such as the Abyss of Demons, or during Gulpord the Slime God’s final phase, to name a few.

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. It is one of the more common white bag items, so can be relatively easily replaced. 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.

The -3 SPD stat bonus for the skull is mirrored by the +3 SPD of Staff of Esben, which is also dropped by Esben the Unwilling.

History:

The description used to refer to ‘the Dark Spirit’, but was changed to the Void Entity to accomodate the lore for the Lost Halls.
