[edit] Notes

  • The bonus damage begins to apply after the first damage pulse.
  • Often used with Psychic Instability.
  • Useful to cover other hexes that punish foes for using skills, such as Diversion or Shame, forcing your target to choose between taking the damage or suffering the covered hex's effect.
    • However, this skill does not cover other hexes if the target uses their own hex removal skill, since activation of the hex removal will end Wastrel's Demise, allowing the skill to remove the next hex in the effects monitor.
  • This skill is very effective against targets that do not use skills (e.g. minions or pets) or rarely use them (e.g. The Jade Quarry Carrier Juggernauts and Hauler Turtles activate their skill, Carrier Defense, under limited situations); it does the maximum damage against them and adjacent foes.
  • Heroes will preferentially use this on casters.
Anomaly Anomaly.If the hex is reapplied before it ends, Wastrel's Demise will continue to add up the bonus damage until the first hex would have run out. After that, the bonus damage cycle will start over.
