A corpse is the body of a creature that remains after the creature dies. Corpses are relevant in Guild Wars because they can be used to resurrect fallen members, and they can be exploited by necromancers. Certain other skills, such as "I Will Avenge You!" and Signet of Capture also have effects relating to corpses.
Most creatures leave a corpse behind. However the corpses of non-fleshy creatures (such as nightmares, golems, and most minions) cannot be exploited. Some creatures, such as Kraken Spawn, leave corpses that are invisible, but still function normally. A corpse left behind by a player character, hero, henchman, animal companion (not exploitable) or boss will not go away, even if it was exploited, but the corpses of regular foes and NPC's will disappear after a minute or so.
Many corpses have been found both on the Island and off. The corpses found on the Island by survivors of the plane crash imply that the Island has been inhabited by several groups prior to their arrival. Several Flight 815 passengers and original island inhabitants, such as the Others, have become deceased since the crash, resulting in additional corpses. Finally, corpses have been identified off the Island, both before and after Island events.

Corpses are bodies of dead Creatures and Humans. Some of them can be sold to NPCs, others can be skinned, while others - which are Daily Respawns, thus not decaying - used as decoration. As a general rule corpses which are larger than 1 square or 32 x 32 pixels can not be carried. An exception to this are Troll corpses, which are 40 x 32 pixels in size.
