The Tombstone is a special heavy melee weapon which can doom nearby enemies.

Details[]

  • Special Effects:
    • Killing an enemy, or hitting a boss, with the third attack in the combo dooms nearby enemies.
      • Enemies killed by the doom effect will also doom other nearby enemies again.
        • This can occur up to 3 times, but each time the doom damage is reduced.
      • This also causes a tombstone to be placed on the ground, but the placed tombstone has no function.
      • This also dooms the boss itself.
  • Breach Bonus: 2 / 2 / 2
    • Base Breach Damage: 210 / 240 / 900
    • Base Breach DPS: 750
  • Combo Duration: 1.8 seconds
    • First Hit: 0.5 (0.4 + 0.1 + 0)
    • Second Hit: 0.55 (0.45 + 0.1 + 0)
    • Third Hit: 0.75 (0.6 + 0.15 + 0)
  • Tags: HeavyWeapon, NoCritical
  • Legendary Version:
    • Forced Affix: Cascading Tomb
      • "Enemies killed by doom propagate the effect around them."

Notes[]

  • Currently, the tombstones that are placed on the ground when killing an enemy using the third hit or with the doom effect do nothing.
  • Similarly to the Alchemic Carbine IconAlchemic Carbine, the Tombstone cycles between several visually different attack animations that feature various different kinds of tombstones. This difference is cosmetic.
  • The doom effect is affected by the affixes applied to the tombstone the player is carrying.
  • The third hit of the combo bypasses shields, much like whip-type weapons.

Trivia[]

  • Tombstone is featured in the update banner for v2.3, aka the Whack-a-Mole Update.
  • At one point in the alpha build of v2.3, placed tombstones were originally intended to apply the doom effect when destroyed instead of on the weapon's third attack in a combo.
