A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Assassin's Mark is a curse that causes targets to become more vulnerable to critical strikes. When killed, affected enemies grant life and mana recovery, and have a chance to grant a power charge.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Cursed enemies take x% increased extra damage from Critical Strikes: This stat is multiplicative with the extra damage from a critical strike, i.e. the base damage (prior to applying Critical Strike Multiplier) will not be affected.[1] "Extra" damage comes from a critical strike multiplier over 100%. As a result characters with 100% critical strike multiplier (e.g. from Elemental Overload)) will not deal any extra damage. Like other stats it's additive with itself from other sources such as the of Toughness map suffix modifier.
  • Assassin's Mark can be turned into an aura by linking it with the Blasphemy SupportBlasphemy SupportSupport, Aura
