    The artifact Ancient Staff of Death has more of an effect on the undead summoned by their respective Death skills than the actual passives Mummified Undead and Undead Mastery.

    Thanks to my friend @Cassyr Dubois, I witnessed the difference first hand with his GM'd Death passives and Lich.

    Currently, the new decay rate for the summoned undead pets has been slowed, but the damage has been amplified. Cassyr's Lich now decays at a rate of 11-12 health (the new decay tick is about 5 seconds for far more than the usual amount, for undead it was set at 3 before this Release) per decay tick without the Ancient Staff of Death equipped. For comparison from another source, my Lich decays at 14-15 health per decay tick, and it is only at level 50 with both of the appropriate passives at level 61. Yes, there is a small decrease in the decay damage, but it isn't much different, even at GM.

    For a better perspective on this, my Mummified Undead skill is supposed to decrease the decay damage by 36.6%, while Cassyr's Mummified Undead skill is supposed to decrease it by around 208% at GM levels
    However, with the artifact equipped, Cassyr's Lich only decayed at 6-7 health per tick. The staff only decreases the decay by 20%!

    But what about the passive skill Undead Mastery? While I don't test summons against each other anymore, after seeing the results from Cassyr's own test, I'm reconsidering it again.

    Below is a match between Cassyr's Lich and Paulie Walnut's Daemon (the daemon is almost GM'd). This first one is using the Ancient Staff of Death.

    Pretty good, at least for a summoned creature anyway. Here's what it looks like without (to save space, I only put about half of the fight in, since we are measuring damage here).

    Pretty noticeable difference in damage there.

    Why is the artifact that gives lower values doing more than the GM'd Death passives Undead Mastery and Mummified Undead?

    Frankly, I'd be ecstatic if a similar artifact existed that boosted the damage of summoned elemental pets in the same way.

    Thanks for posting those stats @Perashim !
