The sphere pulses when created, at regular intervals while afflicted by an Ailment, and after moving, damaging all drenched enemies in a large area.
Releases several tendrils of blood from your character, targeting enemies in a narrow angle in front of you. The beams deal physical damage and inflict a physical damage over time debuff to enemies, which can stack up to 3 times. Effects which allow skills to chain can apply to these tendrils.
A bloody scythe swipes across a selected area, applying a physical damage over time debuff in addition to hitting enemies with physical damage. If enemies survive, you gain a blood charge which raises the damage and cost of the skill. Players can have 5 maximum blood charges.
Each cast of this spell waits for a short duration, releasing a burst of lightning and chaos spell damage in an area around you when that duration ends. Enemies killed by this damage, or shortly after, will explode. The explosions of the corpses are not affected by modifiers to spell damage, and cannot be reflected.
Spin with a sword or axe to deal damage in an area around you. Sacrifices some rage to send a ragestorm forward. While enemies are inside it, the ragestorm will slow its movement and repeatedly deal attack damage based on your attack speed.
Throws a spectral copy of your melee weapon. It spins around while flying in a large spiral, damaging enemies in its path, and bouncing if it collides with walls.
Damages enemies in an area, applying a debuff for a short duration. If a non-unique enemy dies while affected by the debuff, the enemy's corpse will be consumed to summon a Sentinel of Absolution for a longer secondary duration, or to refresh the duration and life of an existing one instead if you have the maximum number of them.
Lobs an exploding projectile near the targeted location, and extra projectiles toward enemies around you. The projectiles deal chaos damage based on your life and energy shield. Casting this spell damages you.
Deals lightning damage based upon your missing mana in a circular area around the targeted location, as well as in four rectangular extensions whose lengths depend upon your remaining mana.
Throws a trap which, once triggered, swings two copies of your equipped Dagger, Claw or One Handed Sword around it in a circle, each repeatedly damaging enemies they spin through.
Fires an arrow into the air to land at a targeted location, dealing area damage. The arrow sticks in the ground where it lands, and periodically fires a beam of lightning to another arrow near it, dealing area damage between them.
Swipe your shield, dealing area damage in three waves in front of you. Enemies can be hit by two of the waves where they overlap.
Attack enemies with a forceful melee strike that also hurts you. Successive uses will raise the damage dealt both to enemies and you. Stunning an enemy with the strike releases a damaging pulse. Requires a Mace, Sceptre, Axe or Staff.
Throws an explosive bottle that deals unarmed attack damage in an area. Can consume charges from your Ruby, Sapphire, and Topaz flasks to add further damage. Requires an empty main hand, and no off-hand weapon.
|Eye of Winter|
Fires a single eye projectile which constantly releases shard projectiles in a spiral. The shards will damage enemies they impact, dealing cold damage. The eye cannot damage enemies. When the eye dissipates or collides with terrain, it releases a faster spiral of extra shards.
Throws an explosive bottle that deals unarmed attack damage in an area and has a chance to poison. Can consume charges from a Life flask to add further damage. Requires an empty main hand, and no off-hand weapon.
Create a Tornado that hinders and repeatedly damages enemies around it. It will move forward for a duration, during which your projectiles can collide with it to deal damage as though it was an enemy. Then it will chase down enemies for a secondary duration, and reflect a portion of the damage it took from your projectiles to them in addition to its own damage.
Lightning strikes all Shocked enemies around a targeted location, then removes Shock from those enemies. Shocks cannot expire on enemies in range while casting this spell. Cannot be supported by Spell Cascade or Unleash.
Applies a buff boosting chance to shock. When you shock an enemy while you have this buff, creates a spherical field of energy attached to the shocked enemy for a duration, which will damage it and other nearby enemies with beams of lightning. The strength of the field depends on the magnitude of shock affecting the enemy when it is created.
Slam the ground, creating a winding fissure that deals area damage while travelling outwards. When it reaches the target location it erupts, releasing a burst of molten projectiles. Requires an Axe, Mace, Sceptre, Staff or Unarmed.
|Vaal Flicker Strike|
Repeatedly teleports to enemies and hits them, inflicting a wound but dealing no damage. After the repeating finishes, each enemy is hit by the total damage of their wounds, which are removed.
|Vaal Molten Strike|
Infuses your melee weapon with molten energies to attack with physical and fire damage. This attack causes balls of molten magma to launch forth causing AoE attack damage to enemies where they land.
The character swings their weapon (or both weapons if dual wielding) in an arc, damaging monsters in an area in front of them. Killing Blows on Rare or Unique enemies grant a buff that improves Cleave for a duration. Killing Blows on Rare Enemies also steal their modifiers for a secondary duration. Only works with Axes and Swords.
|Vaal Volcanic Fissure|
Slam the ground, creating a winding fissure that deals area damage while travelling outwards. When it reaches the target location it erupts, releasing a burst of molten projectiles. After erupting, the fissure continues moving towards enemies to cause further eruptions. Requires an Axe, Mace, Sceptre, Staff or Unarmed.
|Vaal Caustic Arrow|
Fires a slow-moving serpentine arrow which deals chaos damage while piercing enemies, and leaves a trail of caustic ground. Enemies standing on the caustic ground take chaos damage over time.
|Vaal Venom Gyre|
Creates already-caught projectiles without firing them first, both immediately and over a secondary duration. Caught projectiles spiral outwards when you use Whirling Blades and do not return. Requires a Dagger or Claw.
Calls lightning down to infuse your weapon, then performs a melee attack and causes lightning to strike nearby enemies, dealing damage in an area around each. Hitting an enemy grants an aura, giving you and your allies additional lightning damage for a duration, and additional lightning bolts with Smite. Requires a Sword, Axe, Mace, Sceptre, Staff or Unarmed.
|Vaal Blade Flurry|
Channel to create an expanding circle area around you that blinds enemies within it. When you stop channelling, deals damage in a smaller area around each enemy in the circle. Requires a Dagger, Claw or One-Handed Sword.
Skill functions and interactions
Being a Chaos damage over time gem, Decay's damage is affected by any passives or items that increase Chaos damage or increase Damage Over Time. Skill Effect Duration will not affect the duration of Decay unless it is linked to a skill with the duration tag.
Because Decay deals damage, it can benefit from other support gems it is linked with. Decay is not strictly a skill, but can inherit some skill gem tags of the supported skill, namely those that change the source of damage to something other than the player (such as totem and minion). Support gems that have the wording supported skills deal x% more/less/increased/decreased damage will affect Decay's damage, provided the skill gem is eligible to be supported. For example, Less Duration Support cannot affect Decay unless it is linked with a skill that has the duration tag, since Decay does not natively have the duration tag. Likewise, Decay's damage will be increased if linked with a minion skill and Minion Damage Support, as well as increased Minion Damage passives and items.
The supported skill can be given the duration gem tag using Arcane Surge Support (for spells only) or Lifetap Support (all skills). For example, Fireball does not have the duration gem tag natively but gains it on being linked to one of the aforementioned supports.
Certain damage modifiers from Skills will influence Decay's damage. Damage effectiveness does not apply, but "% more damage" or "% of damage per stage" modifiers do, such as Charged Dash, Storm Burst, and Arc allow Decay to deal increased damage. Similar modifiers that are restricted to "Spell Damage" or "Hits and Ailments" do not apply, however.
