Impending Doom Support

Doom Passive Skill

  • Enemies in the Hexed Area are Hexed, and the Hex does not expire while in the Hexed Area
  • Hexes applied this way do not gain Doom over time

Impending Doom Support Build Example

Curse skills were often used via automatic triggers or application. With Path of Exile: Heist‘s rework to curses, the idea is to encourage players to self-cast them more often as they’ll grow in intensity over time after being cast. There will also be new and reworked gems that interact differently with curses.

One example is Impending Doom, a support gem that makes cursed enemies explode once the curse’s effect ends. This will only work on self-cast curses whether it’s from the end of the duration of the spell or because the player removes the curse prematurely (or applies a different curse).

Does Impending Doom work with Curses cast by Bane?

It currently doesn't but that's not 100% locked in.
