Open Wounds

Open Wounds is the simplest of the four Wound effects. It is just Physical Damage over Time (DoT).

See also: Deep Wounds, Serious Open Wounds, Deadly Wounds.

Only one Open Wounds effect can be active on a monster at a time. The next time it is triggered, it will reset the timer. The enemy will not be afflicted with a double DoT at once.


When triggered, Open Wounds will cause bleeding damage. The enemy will sustain five hits (each hit 1 second after the other), total damage of which is 50% of the wounding blow's Physical damage composition. For example, if the hit dealt 100 damage of pure Physical damage and triggered Open Wounds, the enemy would take five hits of 50 damage each. Items or bonuses that modify damage output will change this percentage.


Open wounds has the following Bleeding animation:


This bonus sometimes spawns with a Weapon Lore requirement (requiring Sword Weapons skill or similar to unlock them), and sometimes they don't need any skill. Mods that are available without a Modifier Skill generally have a higher chance to occur. Unlockable mods require a significant skill investment to approach similar chance to occur, but are much more commonly available.

The following table shows the items on which Open Wounds can appear. For example, a Polearm will never require Pole Arms skill to unlock the bonus (if OW spawns on it), while a sword can have it with or without Sword Weapons (though more often you will need the skill).

Chance to inflict

Chance to inflict Open Wounds scales with difficulty levels. A bonus on an item found in Bronze difficulty will improve when moving to higher difficulties (for Open Wounds this is true even if the bonus does not require a Weapon Lore, though the values are less predictable).

Chance for unlockable Open Wounds will increase as the player puts more points in the relevant skill (or even with skill bonuses). Unlockable Open Wounds have the following chances to inflict for each difficulty:

Difficulty 1 skill point 75 points 250+ points
Bronze: 3 % 5 % 10 %
Silver: 3,5 % 6 % 12 %
Gold: 4 % 6,9 % 14 %
Platinum: 4,5 % 8,1 % 17 %
Niobium: 5 % 9,3 % 20 %

Note that skill level 250 is required to reach the maximum value, regardless of difficulty.


In order to resist Open Wounds, players should look for items with the following modifiers:

  • Opponent's Chance to Wound - X%: Reduces the chance opponents can inflict Open Wounds on the player.
  • Damage over Time: Physical -X%: Reduces the damage of Open Wounds (and all other sources of Physical Damage over Time).
  • Detrimental Magic Effects -X%: Reduces both the damage and duration of Open Wounds.
