Specialization background.

"Your suffering fuels me."

Specializing in curses improves the potency of your condition output and critical-hit efficiency. Increase the number of conditions you can apply, and send conditions applied to you right back to your foes. You're just returning the favor, after all.

— In-game description


Curses is a core specialization for the necromancer that focuses on benefits for and from critical hits and conditions, especially with the use of corruption and scepter skills.
