  • This is not a spell, so it cannot be dispelled or negated by spell protection.
  • When a sleeping creature takes damage, all sleep effects will be removed along with all other effects from the same abilities. Because of this, the spirit damage over time will immediately remove all effects caused by this ability, including the damage over time effect itself.


  • This ability has the same bug as Curse of Mortality. The health regeneration penalty only affects out-of-combat health regeneration.
