Corruption is a simple damage over time spell which places a magic debuff on the target, causing shadow damage. As with most [[DoT]]s, once cast it inflicts damage upon its victim every two seconds, and continues until either the effect wears off, or the target dies. This spell cannot generate critical hits.

Notes Edit

Corruption is a simple damage over time spell which places a magic debuff on the target, causing shadow damage. As with most DoTs, once cast it inflicts damage upon its victim every two seconds, and continues until either the effect wears off, or the target dies. This spell cannot generate critical hits.

Corruption can be cast with your target behind you, and since it is instant cast it can also be cast while running. As such, this ability is excellent for kiting enemies. Since walking backward is much slower than running forward or strafe-running, it is always best to do one of the latter two things while attempting to kite something.
