Hexblast is a spell that deals chaos damage to a single enemy. If the target has a hex curse with doom on it, it will deal more damage based on the amount of doom and also target nearby enemies. While the spell deals chaos damage, the damage is resisted by the lowest resistance the target has, and the spell can apply elemental ailments.
