Skeletons are the bony remains of fallen warriors brought to life. They will attack you armed with swords and shields. Sometimes they will pick up crossbow weapons to use against you.
The Sorceress also has the ability to re-animate bone remains into skeletal warriors to fight on her behalf.
Wights are elite blue versions of skeletons.
Skeletons revived by Animate Skeleton can passively freeze enemies on their attacks like their wight counterparts. Create food also spawns bones that can be collected or reanimated into Skeletons.
- The Skeletons appear to be a homage to the 1958 film Wikipedia:The 7th Voyage of Sinbad and the 1963 film Jason and the Argonauts.
