        I'm putting together a mixed DMG aero/necro build. Can't seem to figure out how much damage suffocating does to mgc armor each turn. Skills like black shroud and vacuum aura could be used effectively I think, but how does the damage scale?

          Cursed smoke lasts 3 times longer than normal smoke, being quite useful. Though you need some CC combo to keep your enemies inside the smoke. But be aware, cursed smoke has a little bit inconsistent LOS block than normal / blessed smoke, sometimes allowing the enemies inside to cast skills through smoke.

            Obsolete by similar and lower level skills. Throw dust can blind enemies in a small AOE and doesn't use source. Fire whip can also cause blindness and deals a high amount of damage.

              Blind should be resisted by magical armour, not physical armour.
              I tested and cast it on my team, the text (Blinded blocked by magical armour) appeared on top of the character.

                Note that the blind is resisted by physical armor. The suffocating status cannot be resisted (unless by immunity).
