A scroll that briefly halves the willpower of the reader and any nearby beings, rendering them vulnerable to many magical effects. The scroll cannot affect those fully immune to such effects.

Reading a scroll of vulnerability inflicts vulnerability on everything in your line of sight (including you), reducing willpower by half for a short duration. Monsters with infinite will are unaffected.


Scrolls of vulnerability aren't only for Hexes specialists. For just about any character, vulnerability can be useful:

Remember that your own willpower is also affected! Watch out for enemy hexers, such as Erica, Erolcha, merfolk sirens, or orc sorcerers, when using this scroll. Also watch out for enemies with wands - otherwise, an orc with a wand of paralysis can outright kill you.

Therefore, the ideal targets are powerful uniques without hexes in their spell set. Examples include nasty brutes like Donald, Bai Suzhen, Frederick, or Sojobo. They can also be useful if you're struggling against say, hydras or demonic crawlers, though these scrolls aren't plentiful to use on every hydra you see.
