Poacher's Mark skill screenshot.jpg

Poacher's Mark is a spell that marks a single target with a curse. Hits against the marked target gain added physical damage and recover life and mana, and the marked target has reduced physical damage reduction and grants a frenzy charge when killed.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Mark: Only one mark (regardless of source) can be active at all times. Increasing the curse limit will allow you to apply additional hexes on top of a mark, but does not let you apply additional marks on different targets or apply multiple mark on one target.
