|The Guild Wars 2 Wiki has an article on Parasitic Bond.|
- This skill will end prematurely if the caster dies.
- This skill is one of the best single-target cover hexes in the game, sporting a very low recharge time and cost, with a decent casting time. The hex also has a long duration which does not depend on the attribute investment, making it usable with 0 investment in Curses. There is also a reliable visual cue with the healing when the hex ends or is removed.
- It is best not to remove Parasitic Bond if it is the only hex you or an ally is suffering from, because of numerous factors: the health degeneration it causes is negligible, removing it will heal the caster, it can be reapplied once it is removed due to its short recharge time, and it will end automatically once the caster dies anyway.
- If you cast this skill on a target which an ally has already put Parasitic Bond on, you will gain two packets of healing. One for when theirs would have normally ended, and one when yours ends.
