Skeletons and skeleton warriors are level 1 creatures of necropolis town. They are recruited from the cursed temple.

While skeletons and skeleton warriors are average foot soldiers individually, it is possible to build massively populated troops of them. They are numerously produced, are the main creature produced by the necromancy secondary skill, and other creature types can be converted into them at necropolis skeleton transformers.

Strategy[edit]

With the necromancy secondary skill it is possible to "harvest" skeletons by attacking wandering creature stacks. If the hero has skeleton warriors and no empty slots, the necromancy will produce skeleton warriors to the hero's army, instead of normal skeletons.
