Consider helping out in updating the wiki for 3.8.0 - see Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/3.8.0.

Game data updates to the wiki have been started.

---

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.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Some further details on what needs to be done can be found on Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/Automatic upgraded from and issues can be posted on the talk page.

Mechanics

Dying Breath applies a special aura to the character:[1]

Dying Breath status icon.png
  • Party members and minions within the aura have 18% increased damage. This bonus applies to all damage, including that of spells, traps, and totems.
  • Enemies within the aura are affected by curses from any source with 18% increased magnitude.

Note that the aura given by Dying Breath needs line of sight, unlike auras given by skills. Also, the aura comes from the item, not the player, so it won't be affected by any aura bonuses.
