Kaom's Heart Corruptions

Using Vaal Orb on Kaom's Heart always has a risk: it can greatly improve a Kaom's Heart but they can also change it for the worse. Here are some corruptions:

  • No effect: other than adding the corrupted property.
  • Become worse: reroll a Kaom's Heart into a rare item with randomized sockets, links, and random affixes.
  • Become more powerful: adds an implicit modifier.
