Alas, poor Yorick!

Skulls are either found on the ground amid a pile of bones or left behind when a vampire, skeleton, or Jiang Shi dies.
It can make a good throwing weapon if you have nothing else, but you may prefer the rock, or dislike desecrating corpses. The skull normally breaks after a single throw.

Watch out for Undead Skeletons, who conceal themselves as harmless bone piles until you're almost on top of them.


If you throw a skull at a Skeleton (or Mummy) blood will spurt out.
Apparently the combination of dry bones hitting more dry bones results in fresh blood. This is mostly just a cosmetic bug, but can be useful if you have the Kapala.
