Curse is a spell that increases the target's damage received by 5% for 1 minute. The spell gives 29 experience whether it hits or misses, making it a popular way to raise experience cheaply.

Using Curse on a target will stack with using Vulnerability for a total of 15% increase in damage taken.

Remember, you cannot use Ancient Magicks or Lunar Spells if you are using standard spells.
