Heh, I never knew that Decrep decreases their physical damage output. Pretty sexy curse.@EThug, you are only partly correct, decrep increases damage taken by the enemy by 50%, it also decreases the physical damage that the enemy does by 50%, and thier attack speed is reduced by 50% as well.
I do not believe that tornado is effected, as it is a spell, but i could be wrong. I think that only damage delivered by weapons (melee, and bow type) are effected by decrep.
i am sure that it does lower enemies phys damage output by 50% (PvM), however it may work differently in PvP, or against players.
Only monsters apparently.This curse gives the victim a glimpse of his own mortality, briefly aging the victim. Imagining itself with an infirm body of advanced age, the afflicted believes it is no longer capable of youthful exertions.
Effect: Target's Speed, Damage and Physical Resistance -50%
Decrepify also slows the attack (except missiles from monsters), reduces the damage output of monsters and makes monsters more susceptibile to physical damage.
Very good advice.I haven't tried that on wind druids. Although Wind Druids are one of my toughest opponents. I remember back in the day I only dueled character classes that I thought I matched up well with. I don't do this anymore. I focus on dueling classes that are the hardest for me(such as Wind Druids, Es Sorcs, & Necs). I would go to a game and just focus on fighting Wind Druids if I was you, and well if you lose you lose. It will only make you better against them.
As I stated above, I focus more on dueling classes I have trouble with(not saying I don't ever lose to another class, but I think you guys know what I mean). This is the strategy I use against Wind Druids with my Bone Necro. You need to keep moving and not just backwards. You need to move in half circles, zig zag, etc., to confuse them on where you are going. While you do this keep firing 1-3(2 on average) teeth at them to break down their minions and possibly hit them. I will also switch to firing a couple spirits at them incase I break down their minions with the teeth. Occasionally, I will fire 1 spear if I see they are teleing after me in a straight line. You need to be patient and have a full belt of mana pots. Don't get over anxious if you see you have them hurt and namelock them and tele on them and try to finish them off. You will usually end up getting yourself killed. As they have much more life than you do. If you knock off their minions and they attempted to tele away from you to re-summon their wolves or bear & Oak Sage, keep your distance but stay after them and try to get in some hits on them.
I hope this helps against them.
