Corpse Explosion was a death knight ability that caused a corpse to explode, damaging nearby enemies. Exploded corpses changed to meat or bones models and could still be looted and skinned.


  • During early development, Corpse Explosion had two different designs:[1]
    • 4 mana, 1 Unholy rune spell with "Detonate a Corpse, dealing 2 damage to all minions. Repeat 2 more times."
    • 5 mana, 2 Blood rune spell with "Do 5 times: Detonate a corpse, dealing 1 damage to all minions." which is closer to its final design.
