"Necrophages are accustomed to poisonous vapours. Yet even the most rancid ghouls and graveirs cannot withstand the poison wounds inflicted by a blade coated with Necrophage oil."

A blade coated with Necrophage oil inflicts increased damage on necrophages. Damage inflicted on necrophages is increased by 100%.

Notes[edit | edit source]

One user has reported that Necrophage oil is ineffective against drowners and drowned dead and though they might appear to be necrophages, they are not in fact included in that class, so this would make sense.
