Weaken

Weaken is a Necromancer skill in Diablo II.

LoreEdit

This bane allows the Necromancer to sap the strength from his enemy. Enemies are enfeebled to the point that their blows become highly ineffective.

SynergiesEdit

  • Gives synergy to: None
  • Receives synergy from: None

UsageEdit

This Curse greatly improves the survivability of the caster and his/her minions by reducing the physical damage their foes can deal. Casting this on a group lowers all of their damage output by 33%, greatly increasing your team's effective survivability (effectively by +51%).

Because this spell does not scale its damage mitigation with levels, it is generally wise to not spend more than one point in it. All but the toughest enemies do not last long enough to deal high damage before going down. Higher level Weaken is still useful for countering physical damage from a distance, allowing casters and their minions to focus on the melee monsters first.

Oblivion Knights have access to this skill.

Diablo IIIEdit

Weaken does return in Diablo III, to a certain extent. However, it is renamed to Curse of Weakness, and it is exclusive to the Enslaved Nightmares. Upon suffering this curse, the victim suffers a 25% penalty to all damage dealt.
