Description Your defiling touch permeates everything around you, permanently imparting a random curse on each item you find. When you equip a cursed item, you gain the effects of that curse (shown as a beneficial effect). Each item with the same curse that is equipped increases the curse's power. Initially curses are harmful, but powerful benefits accumulate as the power of the curse increases.

The Dark Gifts talent unlocks higher level curse effects and increases their power.

Your aura permeates your equipment more thoroughly with talent level and can affect items as follows:

  • Level 1 -- weapons
  • Level 2 -- body armor and cloaks
  • Level 3 -- shields and helmets
  • Level 4 -- gloves, boots and belts
  • Level 6 -- rings
  • Level 7 -- amulets/necklaces
  • Level 8 -- lites
  • Level 9 -- tools/totems/torques/wands
  • level 10 -- ammunition

At level 5, you can activate this talent to surround yourself with an aura that adds 2 levels to a curse of your choosing.

Also, talent levels above 5 reduce the negative effects of your curses to 100–64%cTL:0% of the original value, with the effect scaling to (Talent Level - 4).
