Vulnerability is a spell that curses all targets in an area, making them take increased physical damage and granting hits dealt on the cursed targets a chance to apply bleed and maim.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Cursed enemies take increased damage: Because these modifiers are an increase to the target's damage taken, they are multiplicative with attacker's damage dealt and additive with any other effects to damage taken on the defender.[1]
  • Vulnerability can be turned into an aura by linking it with the Blasphemy SupportBlasphemy SupportSupport, Curse, Aura
