Soulstone is a core warlock ability learned at level 18. It creates a [Soulstone] that stores the targeted player's soul (or the warlock), allowing that player to resurrect. If the spell is cast on a dead player, that player is instantly resurrected.

Modified by



  • A warlock may only soulstone one target at a time.
  • The conjured soulstone is soulbound and unique.
  • If the stored player dies, they will be offered the opportunity to reincarnate on the spot, or to be released as a ghost in the normal way. Soulstone resurrection may be used in combat.
  • Use of a Soulstone is on a 15 min cooldown, and creates a 15 min buff.
