Decrepify is a Necromancer Skill in Diablo 2. Decrepify is part of the Curses Skill Tree and requires level 24 to be unlocked. Skills usually define a character's playstyle and are divided by Class and Skill Tree. Some Skills have synergies, which provide benefits to other skills on the same Skill Tree.


This curse gives the victim a glimpse of his own mortality, briefly aging the victim. Imagining itself with an infirm body of advanced age, the afflicted believes it is no longer capable of youthful exertions.


Decrepify Information


  • Curses a group of enemies to make them slow, weak and take amplified damage. 
  • Cast Delay: None
  • Decrepify also slows the attack (except missiles from monsters), reduces the damage output of monsters and makes monsters more susceptibile to physical damage.
  • The slowing effect of Decrepify is a separate calculation from the slowing caused by cold damage and Slows Target By % items and effects (like, say, the Clay Golem).
  • This skill DOES work on bosses and Super Unique Monsters.
  • Note that additional points increase neither the effect nor the radius, so usually one point (with possibly +skills items) is sufficient even if you are planning to use this skill heavily. Typically you can just keep casting the spell on a target to recharge the duration, since it does not cost much mana.
