Curse of Exhaustion is a warlock Curse which reduces the target's movement speed.


Known as "CoX" or "CoEx" for short, to avoid confusion with [Curse of the Elements].

Tips and tactics

Many NPCs have a faster baseline running speed than players, making this curse more useful in PvP than in PvE.

CoEx can actually be very useful in catching those enemy players who are trying to escape from you and/or your allies, especially if they're carrying the flag in a capture-the-flag game.
