Corrupted Power is a power skill which boosts both damage dealt and damage taken for a short time.


  • Special Effects:
    • Adds 75 base DPS to all player-inflicted damage. The player takes 30% more damage from all sources.
      • The skill stacks addictively with affixes that increases damage dealt to the player.
    • All effects last for 8 seconds.
  • Tags: NoDamage, HasDuration
  • Legendary Version: Anomaly
  • Forced Affix: Run Speed On Use
    • "Increases movement speed for 10 seconds."


  • For Brutality builds, it is possible to back it up with Vampirism Icon.png Vampirism and the Recovery Mutation Icon.png Recovery mutation to compensate for any mistakes made while the skill is active.
    • Beware that some damage sources have a specified limit which will ignore the skill's negative attribute, such as being hit by traps while Masochist is active.


  • Corrupted Power is best used for burst damage. As a trade-off, the player needs to avoid attacks to the best of their abilities in order to take maximum advantage of the skill.
  • It is ill-advised to use weapons such as Blood Sword Icon.png Blood Sword, Alchemic Carbine Icon.png Alchemic Carbine and Hokuto's Bow Icon.png Hokuto's Bow with it since the skill does not affect damage from negative status effects such as bleeding, poisoning, and Hokuto's Mark.


  • Previously named Damage Buffer.


  • 0.0: Introduced.
  • 1.4: Scaling changed from Skill Hp.png Tactics/ Survival to Str Skill.png Brutality/ Tactics.
  • 2.4: Base DPS increased from 50 to 75.
