Bane is an active skill gem that applies a debuff to enemies in an area, which deals Chaos Damage over Time. Linked Hex are also applied to those enemies. The debuff deals more damage and lasts longer for each curse applied this way. Bane does not count toward the curse limit, but the curses it applies do.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Triggering: Hex Curse skill gems linked with Bane are not directly usable (like other triggering methods). Triggering Bane however will not trigger any linked curses, since any skill linked with multiple triggers are disabled. Instead the curse skill will trigger alone in sequence as you would expect when linking multiple skills to a single trigger.
  • Damage Bonus: Bane's damage bonus per curse applied is additive with itself. For example, a level 20 Bane linked with two curse will deal 84% more Damage. Bane only gains the damage bonus from linked curses. Other sources such as curse on hit, Blasphemy SupportBlasphemy SupportSupport, Hex, Aura
