Soulstone is a level 18 warlock ability. It stores a player's soul, allowing that player to resurrect. If the target is dead, it resurrects them.


  • 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 can be used in combat.
