      Is there a name for the spirit bombs that they throw at you? I think it would be an excellent item in the game. Too bad they didn't add it into the game.

        Dead for till you rest01 May 2016 04:56  

        I'm fairly certain that when you kill a skeleton of any kind with a deep infused weapon, they stay dead until you rest at the next bonfire, One of my play-throughs I was using the Deep Battle axe From High Wall Mimic, And they would not get up after defeat

          Glowy eye skeletons are not immortal.25 Apr 2016 21:39  

          Glowing eye skeletons only respawn once, losing the shine in their eyes. Killing them normally twice will leave them dead. No need for blessed gear.

            Carthus skeletons should be separated from regular skeletons, and perhaps the bonewheel skeletons should be moved to their own page as well.
