Warlock Curse spells are warlock debuffs that afflict the target with negative effects.

Curses can be dispelled by druids, mages and shamans.

Curses and Banes

Several former Curse spells were turned into Banes in patch 4.0.1. One Curse and one Bane could be active on any one target at a time (per warlock).
