Wither skill screenshot.jpg
Wither is a channelled spell that applies the Hinder debuff, which reduces their movement speed, and a stacking Withered debuff, which increases chaos damage taken, in an area periodically while channeling.

Skill functions and interactions

This skill applies two different debuffs on the target:

  • Withered status icon.pngWithered: a debuff that applies 6% increased chaos damage taken per stack, up to 15 stacks. Each stack has its own independent duration of 2s, which is not refreshed when applying new stacks.
  • Hinder status icon.pngHinder: a debuff that reduces the target movement speed. This debuff duration does not stack, and its duration is constantly refreshed while channeling.

    and Wither are now channelled skills.
  • Unlike other skills, which are used once and quickly finish, when you use a channelled skill, it doesn't finish until you release the relevant button/key. You continue performing the same skill.
  • You need to pay mana repeatedly to keep the skill going. The channelled skill's mana cost must be paid again to maintain it with a frequency determined by the cast time. If you can't pay, the skill will end, just as if you'd lifted the button.
  • Dying, being stunned, and other game mechanics that interrupt the use of skills will cause channelling to end as well.
  • Effects which trigger when you use a skill will only trigger when you initially start channelling - regardless of how long you maintain a channelled skill, it's still the same use of the skill. You need to stop channelling if you want to use it again.
2.1.0
  • Added to the game.
