Leech Attack, one of the Ancient Curses, boosts Attack by 2 levels when calculating hit chance, increasing to 5 over time, and it drains enemy Attack by 4 levels when calculating hit chance, increasing to 8 over time.
The boost/drain of this spell will take anywhere from 1–3 minutes of continuous combat to maximise.
This can be useful against enemies who have high accuracy. Note that this curse is especially effective if stacked with Leech Defence.
Leech curses drain one opponent. Following each kill, the leech % resets, and %'s does not carry across opponents. You can maximise an enemy's drain, but upon fighting a new opponent the drain will restart, eventually rising to maximum again. Player boosts do carry across, however, providing that the player is supplied with more drains to sustain the leech.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
