A trick often employed by masters of minion control, the feared Punishment curse has brought down entire armies. The malady causes afflicted targets to suffer a substantial amount of the damage they deal from their own attacks, so the harder they hit, the faster they die. The secret is in making sure that incoming blows land on the dry bones and withered flesh of enemies rather than on the caster of the Curse.

Description on the official Path of Exile website[1]

Punishment is a spell that curses all targets in an area, causing them to grant the Punisher buff to others they hit with melee attacks. Punisher grants more melee physical damage and increased attack speed.
