Notes
Part of the Corrupted Paladin Set.

This seal doesn’t provide any buffs whatsoever when used, instead summoning a stationary void rift that deals heavy armor piercing damage in an area over 5 seconds while cursing foes. The loss of the buffs is often too significant to be worth the tradeoff, but the seal shines in situations where the buffs either aren’t as important or when other Paladins are already applying them, in which case it becomes a powerful option to deal AoE damage and increase group DPS through Curse. It does provide some buffs to HP and VIT to compensate for the lack of buffs, but they often aren’t enough to completely make up for them; on the flip side, they’re very useful for bolstering survivability if other Paladins are already buffing.

The vortex will curse enemies before dealing damage, meaning it can deal up to 2,250 - 3,000 damage over its 5 second lifetime (1,800 to 2,400 damage for curse immune targets). As the cooldown is as long as the duration, it can have an 100% lifetime if the player has enough mana. Note, however, that it’s more expensive than most Seals to cast, making spamming it harder.

The Void Rift has the following sprite:
