Points required



Improved Curse of Weakness (formerly Frailty) is a warlock talent that increases the attack power reduction of [Curse of Weakness].


Originally, Curse of Weakness was a relatively weak curse that reduced the damage dealt by the debuff's target. However, this was applied before armor mitigation damage and was effective only on very fast attackers. The current CoW reduces attack power by as much as 350 at rank 8. Taking both points in Improved Curse of Weakness increases this debuff to 420 attack power. Attack power translates to DPS on mobs and players differently, however in general 14 attack power grands 1 additional DPS to weapon damage. As such 350 attack power reduces DPS by 25 and 420 attack power reduces DPS by 30.

Does not stack with the warrior spell [Demoralizing Shout], and neither with the similar druid bear form skill [Demoralizing Roar].
