Synergy with Enfeeble[edit]

I think this could go for being changed. Enfeeble causes weakness, and so does Virulence. It's not synergistic, it's actually kind of redundant. Mesodreth Blackwing 01:51, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

Enfeeble causes weakness, then if you cast Virulence afterwards, he/she will suffer from the others two conditions as well, weakness will not be re-applied. I think what the note means is that you can cast both of these then Virulence since they have a low activation and recharge, then taking the full effect of Virulence. Either (around) 2 secs total with Enfeeble or 3 secs total with Weaken Armor.--ShadowFog 15:02, 17 December 2007 (UTC)
Agreed no synergy here, especially since weaken armor got buffed, removing notes. --Lou-SaydusHow dare you put that damned dirty thing on me! 22:38, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
Honestly, the note should say "Good synergy with skills that cause conditions" <_< 03:10, 3 August 2008 (UTC)


Was that comment really needed?Oni User talk:Oni 01:34, 6 June 2008 (UTC)


Use with no points in death magic, so the conditions only last 3 seconds, put fragility on them first and bring some other cond skills... about to go try this in AB -Starshadow

Fragility and Weaken Armor + this = 20- al alot of hp degen and health loss-- 15:53, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Most potently removed by...[edit]

Antidote signet removes all the conditions applied, making it useful for areas with foes using this. --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 10:29, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

Good Combo for Sword W/N?[edit]

Sever Artery > Gash > Virulence

I haven't played one and my N/Me isn't high enough to capture Virulence but with -11 Degen and Weakness for only 10 Adrenaline and 5 Energy it doesn't seem like a bad combo (for PvE!). I'm sure there are better Sword Elites out there but again, I don't have a warrior to know from experience. How does this add up? 13:28, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Only if you like RC. Backsword 13:46, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
I Know the above comments are a bit old but I sometimes have my warrior use Sever Artery, Virulance, Gash in that combo and it works great, I have Koss also manage that combo too and it all works pretty surprisingly nice. You cap out the degeneration on a foe, weaken him so he deals 66% less damage and -1 attributes AND lower his max health. Sick. - Chrisworld 03:29, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
In Prophecies-days this was an awesome combo, i used it a lot in RA =D but now it's just inferior to all popular RA builds... -- 14:14, 28 September 2009 (UTC)

there's a big bolded for pve part in there. i wouldn't know how effective it is either since i don't play war. edit: after looking at my hero wars, i think cripslash does better since it adds a nice cripple in there and you dont need to spec into something wierd. Roflmaomgz 00:32, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Generally for PvE, crippling isn't a great condition. However, disease is great in some parts of PvE (those parts with homogenous fleshy groups of non-humans). -~=Sparky User Sparky, the Tainted charr sig.PNG (talk) 02:00, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

Take sever artery-virulence-gash-final thrust and a self-heal and other utility skills and destroy your enemies while they rofl in PvP. A huge sipke of degen that no one is prepared for.-- 03:25, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Frag spike works alot better. And has room for utility. --Briar 03:31, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
fragility spike is loleasy to counter plus it mostly doesnt even kill 03:35, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
Your saying that this w/n bar will? O.o --Briar 05:15, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

THIS SHIT IS LAME FOR PVP: Let picture a situation. Hey im on AB,hey some kurz\luxon that aginst me,im gonna virulence you,oh your a warrior,oh WTF im disease to,OMFG all my team are disease WTF IS GOING ON THEY CALL ME A NOOB OMG THIS SKILL FUKCING SUCKS.

I LOL'ed Roflmaomgz 04:46, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
Still LOLing Roflmaomgz 04:48, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
I'm not loling... i can totally seeing that happening to me xD --The Wind Sage 00:20, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

this skill is just rubbish on pvp. 12:00, 31 March 2010 (UTC)


Disease isn't used much for PvP or PvE. it isn't used for PvP because every one in PvP is human and there for is effected by it. How ever it is very much lulz to see people rage about -4 health degeneration. in PvE there are areas with very little fleshy creatures. Essentially any place a Minion master is useless, Virulence is useless. But I rather like this skill. Doesn't need a buff in my opinion. its really fun to use.--Yozuk 19:48, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Buff Suggestions (for PvE)[edit]

"For X seconds targets of your necromancer skills suffer from disease and weakness for X seconds."

Basically the elite death magic barbed signet. You loose the poison but you can combo it with barbed signet and still get good degen. Maybe a PvP version could be like the pvp version of barbed signet but with a longer recharge.

Lower the recharge.

Having to combo it with mesmer skills just to get the conditions (besides disease) on more than one foe is a PITA.

Make it adjacent or nearby AoE but cost 10 or 15e.

Again, a way to get it on multiple foes. 02:07, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

"Consider using this skill after Signet of Suffering" - WUT? 2 elites on skillbar are only for 1337 Pr0s.
