"My hordes are without number!" - Iratus

Minions are the various undead beings that make up the army of Iratus. Created in the Chamber of Iratus, they have varying combat abilities and serve other useful purposes when placed in the buildings located in the Graveyard surrounding Iratus' Chamber.

Overview

Minions at player's disposal

"It is hard to imagine a Dark Lord without his army of loyal and obedient minions, but the Necromancer disregards the creations summoned by his evil will and simply uses them as cannon fodder. Still, servants are blindly dedicated to their lord. Skeletons, zombies, vampires and banshee are always ready to descend upon the enemy at the first call of the master and strike terror into their hearts."[1]

There are currently 19 Minions for the players to utilize, with 1 of them only available to players who purchase Supporter Pack.

6 Minions are available for new players at the start: Banshee, Bride of Iratus, Dark Knight, Skeleton, Wraith and Zombie. Infested is included in Supporter Pack. The remaining Minions can only be unlocked by meeting certain requirements.




Mechanics

Creation

Creation Screen

Minions are created through the Creation tab in Chamber of Iratus. Each of them requires 4 Parts to be crafted. Minions can be dismissed to get rid of them permanently, but the parts used to create them and the items they carry will also be lost.

Trivia

  • It is revealed that the creation of minions requires the most basic component: Curse. Without this, raising undead is impossible. Only human corpses can bear a Curse to be reanimated. This explains why almost all minions are humanoid in appearance. The only exception is Black Widow, who is half-human and half-animal.
