Curse of Exhaustion is a warlock ability learned at level 32 for those with the Affliction specialization. It reduces the target's movement speed.
Modified by Edit
- Known as "CoX" or "CoEx" for short, to avoid confusion with Curse of the Elements.
- Many NPCs have a faster baseline running speed than players, making this curse more useful in PvP than in PvE.
- CoEx can actually be very useful in catching those enemy players who are trying to escape from you and/or your allies, especially if they're carrying the flag in a capture-the-flag game.
