As the cornerstone of some of the most popular builds of Path of Exile, Plague Bearer is a powerful Spell Gem that can improve the character’s DPS and their AOE. Players can also buy POE Currency to increase its damage. It is useful in many game situations, but it is particularly valued for its effectiveness in removing monsters. It is also one of the more complex Spells in the game, and a basic understanding of its mechanics is essential to make it suitable for players’ construction.

On the surface, Plague Bearer is a kind of Spell, which allows players to switch between two different modes, one is to charge the Spell up, and the other is to consume this charge. Specifically, the first mode will reduce the Poison Damage caused by the players to the enemy, while saving some remaining Poison Damage. When switching to the second mode, Spell will consume the damage stored by the players. However, it will not cause poison damage, but will cause Chaos Damage over time, and will cause damage in a range.

This not only improves the players’ overall DPS, but that it converted the damage to Chaos is usually (but not always) beneficial. This is because the enemy’s resistance to Chaos Damage in Path of Exile is often lower than any other type of damage. But in order to increase the damage of their characters, many players also Buy Exalted Orbs to strengthen themselves.

When upgrading the Plague Bearer Gem, the mana cost of the spell and the maximum amount of damage it can store will increase. Mana cost ranges from 6 for level 1 gems to 17 for level 34-40 gems. The maximum damage stored by Spell ranges from 4,000 for level 1 gems to 2,100,000 for level 40 gems. But they can also prepare some Path of Exile Currency to increase their damage quickly.
