  • The amount of disease damage and the amount of encounter power decrease is dependent on the Intelligence of the Defiler.
  • I just got this spell and it does not Stifle or Root me. Also the statement above about Intelligence having anything to do with this spell must be outdated as we know Wisdom affects spell damage for Defilers.
