Death

Notes:

  • Places a debuff on the target, which applies the damage upon expiring. The debuff lasts 0 seconds.
    • Due to server tick rates, the debuff effectively lasts 0.033 seconds. It is not possible to have a 0-second duration modifier or effect delay.
    • This means the damage can be avoided by being invulnerable or hidden as the debuff expires.
