Mechanics and Interactions
Curses cast via this trigger no longer possess their area of effect property, only affecting the enemies hit with the linked skill.
To use this gem, it needs both a linked attack or spell, and a linked curse. As stated in the tooltip, curses linked to this gem cannot be cast directly.
Curse On Hit is considered a trigger only for the linked curse, and not the attacks or spells which are applying it (see Trigger). This means it can be used with trigger skills such as Vengeance or Riposte. It can also be used with Cast when Damage Taken, as long as the spell is within its level threshold and the curse is above the level threshold. Minions, totems, mines, and traps cannot use curse on hit.
