Notes

A Risk Reward themed tome that lets Priests Inflict Curse Curse for 4 seconds at the cost of applying the same effect and duration to themselves. Although its usage is nullified in the presence of a Mystic, the damage can compensate Priest’s overall lack of DPS throughout early and mid-game dungeons.

In the right hands, it can be used as an incredible offensive tool much like the Tome of Pain, but with better healing, potential damage and the Curse Curse effect.

This Item pairs well with the Tome of Purification as it purifies the self-inflicted Curse Curse and allowing further usage without hindering yourself.

This tome fires a line of 5 projectiles, meaning a Priest using this tome will hit 2-3 shots on most occasions, with the following shot pattern:

Necronomicon Projectiles
