Curse

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Сurses are a type of temporary debuffs.

Mechanics

Curses have a limited duration, but can be refreshed by applying a curse again.

Monsters and maps can have modifiers that make them (or monsters inside of them, in the case of maps) hexproof or immune to curses.

Act and map bosses have 60% less Curse Effect. The Shaper and his guardians have 80% less Curse Effect.

The total Curse Effect value can be calculated as the sum of any added Curse Effect, multiplied by the sum of all increases and reductions to Curse Effect, multiplied by all more and less Curse Effect modifiers.

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} \begin{align}
a & \text{ the total amount of added Curse Effect } & a & \in \mathbb{N}_{0} \\
b & \text{ the total amount of increased Curse Effect } & b & \in \mathbb{N}_{0} \\
c & \text{ the total amount of reduced Curse Effect } & c & \in \mathbb{N}_{0} \\
d & \text{ the total amount of more Curse Effect } & d & \in \mathbb{N}_{0} \\
e & \text{ the total amount of less Curse Effect } & e & \in \mathbb{N}_{0} \\
\end{align}

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} \begin{align}
\text{Curse Effect}_{total} = & \sum_{i=1}^{a} \text{added Curse Effect}_{i} \times \\
& \left( 1 + \sum_{j=1}^{b} \text{increased Curse Effect}_{j} - \sum_{k=1}^{c} \text{reduced Curse Effect}_{k} \right) \times \\
& \prod_{l=1}^{d} (1 + \text{more Curse Effect}_{l}) \times \prod_{m=1}^{e} (1 - \text{less Curse Effect}_{m})
\end{align}
