This curse gives the victim a glimpse of his own mortality, briefly aging the victim. Imagining itself with an infirm body of advanced age, the afflicted believes it is no longer capable of youthful exertions.

- Receives synergy from: None
Decrepify can therefore decrease the damage output of enemies by slowing their attack (although it does not slow the actual speed of their projectiles). Its effects, however, are independent of cold damage and Slows Target equipment; any combination of the three can stack and slow enemies to a very slow crawl. Amplify Damage is still better for damage-dealing purposes as its reduction to enemy physical resist is higher.
Mana Cost: 11

While a class that can make use of curses does not exist, Decrepify does somewhat return in Diablo III. It is reworked, however, starting with its name; it is now named Curse of Mud instead. The curse is used only by an Enslaved Nightmare, but it inflicts a high movement speed debuff on the victim.
