There is a bug in cargo that busted the name list functionality for items, resulting in wrong/random items being returned for {{Il}} (item links).

A fix for them to behave similar to before has been deployed, the underlying bug still exists though. If you see item links showing the wrong item despite being correct in the source text please null-edit the page. For other item link errors (red text) see the template for details.

Though they generally feared sorcery, even the Marauders came to learn the value of the powerful Vulnerability Curse. Before charging into battle, a caster on the front lines would speak the curse, throwing it far and wide on their assembled enemies. The Marauders would come on with a roar, a tidal wave of rage and steel crashing against their foes. The Vulnerability curse could hardly be seen, but its effects were dire. Blows from the Marauders hit far harder, sundering helm and shield like tin. Those not killed immediately would be stunned inert, unable to defend themselves from the onslaught. Even masters of magic were vulnerable, for the curse corrupted the force of their protective shields.

Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

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.[2]
