Cloak of the Undead King is a relic class combination artifact and is equipped in the shoulders slot. Combination artifacts were first added in the Shadow of Death expansion. The artifact allows to raise killed enemy troops as skeletons after the battle, as if a hero had Necromancy. The power of the skill is 30% (15% in HotAHorn of the Abyss, which is equal to the Necromancy buff all the components provide. Unlike the real Necromancy secondary skill, the basic effect cannot be increased by Necromancy Amplifier, Soul Prison or Necromancy specialty, - it's always 30% in Shadow of Death and 15% in Horn of the Abyss.

For heroes with Necromancy the artifact effect is different. They get all the skill buffs available (except for the cloak's components effect), and the level of the skill determines which kind of undead will rise:

If there are only upgraded creatures in the army and no empty slots available, Zombies, Wraiths or Power Liches will be raised, but just 66,6% compared to the number of unupgraded ones.

Requires the following artifacts to create:

Horn of the Abyss

In Horn of the Abyss, the power of the Cloak of the Undead King was cut in half, as Necromancy itself. It gives heroes without Necromancy just 15% skill instead of 30%.
