    Curses stack?

    Hello peeps,

    Hope I came to the right place with questions on curses. Is there a rule of thumb to follow about how curses stack or over ride each other?
    For example: Merc using Reapers Toll. Will it over ride Lower Resists or do they stack ok?
    Merc with Delerium helm. Does Confuse or Terror mess up things like Blind or Attract?

    Would be happy to read a guide on this stuff if anyone can point me to one.

    -Thanks in advance

    Attract cannot be overridden by other curses and is an exception to the rule that the last curse wins. The barbarians battle cry and taunt count as curses for these purposes as well.

    Only a technicality. The effect of Terror remains on the monster when you use another curses, as long as the monster does not have to make an AI decision.

    Thats interesting - I dinna know that about Terror. Curiousity, would the Barbarian "Grim Totem" have the same pseudo-stacking effect?

    I think so, Grim ward periodically casts the Terror curse on anything in range of the totem. Grim Ward charges are on my Blackhand Key wand so I might test this next time on the Cow level
