Decrepify is a Curse Necromancer skill in Diablo III, functioning similarly to Weaken and Decrepify from the previous game (though it does not reduce Physical resistance anymore).

In-game[edit | edit source]

When activated, this skill curses the ground within the targeted area for 1 second. Any enemy touched by it will be cursed for 30 seconds.

Unlike Diablo II Curses, in Diablo III multiple curses can afflict the same target.

Runes[edit | edit source]

  • Dizzying Curse: Cursed enemies have a 10% chance to be stunned for 2 seconds when hit.
  • Enfeeblement: Increase the potency of the movement speed reduction to 100%, decaying by 5% with every second for 5 seconds. Remaining duration uses the regular 75% speed reduction.
  • Wither: Damage reduction increases to 40%, but curse no longer reduces movement speed.
  • Opportunist: Gain a 3% movement speed increase for every enemy cursed, up to 30%.
  • Borrowed Time: Gain 1% cooldown reduction for every enemy cursed, up to 20%. This does not reduce the remaining cooldowns, only decreases the future ones.

Non-rune enhancements[edit | edit source]

  • Cursed Scythe: Enemies hit by the Scythe have a 15% chance to be inflicted with a random Curse of the Necromancer's arsenal; these curses do benefit from runes and enhancements, if any.
  • Trag'oul's Corroded Fang (Legendary Scythe): The Cursed Scythe rune gains a 100% chance to apply a curse and increases damage against cursed enemies by 175-200%.
  • Dayntee's Binding (Legendary Belt): the Necromancer gains a 40-50% reduction to all damage taken while Decrepify is active on at least one foe.
  • Spear of Jairo (Legendary Spear): The Necromancer's Thorns is increased by 10-15% for every enemy afflicted by a Curse.
  • Briggs' Wrath (Legendary Ring): Uncursed enemies are pulled to the targeted location when a Curse is applied to them.
  • Cursed Form: While active, Simulacrum makes all Curse skills apply all three curses to each target, even if the Necromancer does not have the other two Curses on their skill set.

Passives[edit | edit source]

  • Eternal Torment: reduces Essence cost by 50% and increases duration to 5 minutes.
  • Spreading Malediction: Increases the Necromancer's damage done by 1% for every enemy afflicted by any Curse.
