  • Apply snares to the area around the target or nearby foes to force them to remain in the effect area.
  • If this hex is re-applied on a foe before its normal expiration, the duration will be refreshed to 5 seconds and the DoT multiplier will continue to increment, but it will reset to 1x when the original duration would have expired. It is therefore inefficient to spam this hex on recharge; instead, wait the full 5 seconds for the first application to wear off.
  • This spell is especially effective on pets, minions, and other opponents that otherwise cannot activate skills.
Anomaly Anomaly! The animation for this skill's activation seems to always point north on the in-game compass.


  • A wastrel is a person who wastes time or resources extravagantly.
