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 HotA) , 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.
