    Curse after harvesting Invaders

    Post by Hart on Wed Jul 31, 2013 11:58 am

    So, after I killed Leeroy and looted his stuff it occurred to me that when I did so, my curse bar went up a little. This happens for all NPC invaders.

    Is there a lore reason to this?

    You gain a humanity.

    Humanity increases cures resistant.

    When resistance in something is increased a lot, it shows.

    For example, it is the same as when you equip that cursebite ring.

    It's because  when a resistance increases, the 0 becomes whatever is your new resistance minus the original value.
    repeatedly equipping and unequipping bloodshield for example fills your status bars to a point where anything can inflict curse/poison/bleed/toxin in one hit.

    It's a mechanic, you're not getting cursed, your curse resistance is just going up.

    Though...

    Given enough time, I could make a lore reason silly

    I always saw it as killing someone made you lose apart of yourself

    Maybe when you take the humanity dropped by a Darkwraith you're becoming closer to the darkness/corruption of the Abyss, since you're taking part of something that is from the Abyss?

    That explains why you get the same effect by repeatedly equipping a curse resistance boosting item...
    silly
