Cursed Inferno is a debuff that prevents health regeneration and causes the afflicted NPC or player to take damage each second for the duration of the debuff. The damage varies by platform:

  • On Desktop version Desktop, 24 damage per second is inflicted to enemies, and 12 damage per second is inflicted to players. Affected enemies also take 10% more knockback.
  • Enemies and players alike take 12 damage/second
  • Enemies and players alike take 6 damage/second

If the afflicted target is Oiled, they will take:

25 additional damage per second, totaling 49 damage per second to enemies or 37 damage per second to players.
12 additional damage per second, totaling 24 / 18 damage per second.

All enemies that are immune to Cursed Inferno are also immune to Shadowflame.
