Notes and Tips

  • Scroll crafted by combine Sheet of Paper, Shadow Essence, and Eye
  • Decaying touch will reverse the effects of all healing effects cast on the target. Try using it on a target that is the focus of the enemy healer, to put their heals to work for you.
  • If the target has no Physical Armor, successfully applying Decaying to it will remove Fortify

      Basically any character that is affected by decaying will be unable to receive heal for the duration, undead will take damage from poison (as poison is healing for them) and still take damage from direct healing. Living will still take damage from poison and will take damage from healing. Don't know if it affects necromancer passive ability to heal as you make damages.

        Doesn't reverse the effect of healing spells if cast on a party member. Undead still take damage from Restoration
