The Lore attribute combines with the Realm of Souls to keep the infantry of the Tomb Kings fighting for as long as possible. Djaf's Incancation provides a strong damage boost, however is more useful for the bonus vs. large it can give while overcast. Overcasted on Settra (or a generic Tomb King) with his Warsphinx and he can tear apart enemy large units. This works for other Lords/characters or constructs as well. Neru provides a strong physical resist, beware enemies with magic attacks will cut through that defence.

Ptra's Incantation is useful for ranged units like Skeleton archers, Ushabti (Great Bows), and the Bone Giant. This spell can make them much more deadly and given that there are a number of Tomb Kings armies that rely on such units, this is a useful but niche spell. Can be paired with Khalida for particularly devastating ranged units, but is still underwhelming. Uisirian's Incantation is a direct damage that slows, rarely sees use and is prohibitively expensive. Uskeph's Incantation is similar.

Sakhmet's Incantation is notable for being one of the longest lasting Vortexes in the game. It can shred infantry, but beware its random movements as it can turn back on your units just as easily.

This Lore is usually played cheap and simply. One brings just Nerus's Incantation and Djaf's Blades. This allows a strong protective spell and offensive spell. They are both cheap and the more casting means more healing for the infantry of the Tomb Kings. One of Khatep's items provides a map wide buff whenever he casts that is conducive to this style.
