Curse is a spell which increases the target's damage received by 5% for 1 minute. The spell gives experience whether it hits or misses, making it a popular way to raise experience cheaply. When using one piece of Sacred Clay armour while training with Curse, each spell gives 29 experience points. Wearing one piece of the set will last 515 casts, 2 pieces will last 1030 casts, 3 pieces will last 1545 casts, and 4 pieces will last 2060 casts.
