You are cursed. You take increased damage from projectiles, and projectiles that hit you will split. You grant flask charges to the enemy who cursed you when hit.

Sniper's Mark is a spell that marks a single target with a curse. The marked target takes increased damage from projectiles, causes projectiles that hit the marked target to split, and grants life and mana flask charges when hit.

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.
  • Flask charges are granted no more than once every 0.5 seconds. Charges are only granted to characters that directly hit it (not from minions, totems, etc.).
