|Creates an icy replica from the corpse of the original being. This magic is unstable, so eventually the replica will sublimate into a freezing cloud. Simulacra cannot leave the level they were created on.|
Casting Simulacrum converts a single corpse laying at your feet into undead beings made of ice. The number of simulacra created is randomized, but increases based on spell power and the size of the corpse. Maximum amount is 8.
The kind of simulacrum created is based on the type of the original monster slain. These creatures will do additional ice damage on top of the normal damage for their kind, so the damage output of creatures with multiple attacks is greatly increased. When killed, simulacra leave behind only a short-lived freezing cloud.
