|Prerequisites||Curse of Slowness Lv. 1|
Curse of Silence is a key situational spell that prevents a monster or boss from carrying out one of their skills during their cast. With a 1 second casting time, a priest must be able to respond when a monster begins to cast their skill, or risk failing to do so. Upon contact, the target cannot use any spells (their current cast is interrupted) for two seconds, followed by a 5 second period where they cannot use skills from the same school. If used inappropriately, Curse of Silence can drain a large amount of your mana due to it's expensive cost.
Unlike Disrupt Magic from mages which can only counter magical spells, Curse of Silence can prevent both physical and magical spells. Curse of Silence shares it's interrupting capabilities with skills from other classes such as the Hunter's Disrupting Shot and the Warrior skill Smite.
- Priests require at least 3 skill points in order to obtain Curse of Silence (2 points to unlock the prerequisite spells Blessing of Speed and Curse of Slowness, 1 to obtain the spell itself). Compared to the other classes, they only require one point to unlock their own interrupt spell.
- There are some spells that cannot be interrupted at all, often indicated by a shield icon next to the casting bar.
- Few bosses are immune to being interrupted with entirely, or has a limit to the number of interrupts it can receive before becoming fully immune to them. A particular monster such as the Beholder (from Blackwood Depths) can interrupt all spells at close proximity if it is not already suffering from freeze or sleep.
