This Curse allows lowers most targets' vision and detection range. It does not work on players, Super Uniques, Bosses or Oblivion Knights.

Casting this curse by itself does not alert enemies to the caster's presence, and allows either sneaking past a group of foes, or to better prepare for an attack. Ranged attackers such as Willowisps can be rendered impotent with this skill.

Dim Vision also prevent some monsters from using special abilities; Blood Lords cannot cast Frenzy, for example. Similarly, Vile Mothers cannot create spawns, Frozen Horrors cannot cast Arctic Blast, etc.

Ravens summoned by Druids apply this Curse to their target.
